Las Vegas, Nevada
While Las Vegas is primarily known for its gaming, the city and surrounding area offers so much more.
For free fun, walk along the Strip and gaze at the fountains outside of Bellagio or the gardens inside, marvel at the Freemont Experience outside the Golden Nugget, or visit the M&M’s World to see how everyone’s favorite chocolate candy is made. Adrenaline junkies can get their kicks at the thrill rides atop the Stratosphere, the High Roller observation wheel at The LINQ, the zipline at Rio, the three-story waterslide at the Golden Nugget that lets you seemingly swim with sharks, and so many other scream-filled attractions. And to cool off, there are amazing pool clubs at many of Las Vegas’ large resorts, complete with Bali beds, waiter service, DJs, and more. Curious about the Vegas of yesterday? Visit the Neon Museum and its collection of classic neon signs or the Mob Museum, featuring interactive exhibits and artifacts from the city’s sordid past. And, as for gaming, whether you are new to the games, a regular, or a high-stakes player, Las Vegas is sure to please.

Who Should Go
World-class restaurants — many with celebrity chefs behind them — great shows and entertainment, along with pampering hotels make for the perfect romantic getaway.
For a girls’ getaway or a guys’ trip of golf and gaming, Las Vegas is a natural choice. For the gals, there are pampering spas and superb shopping, as well as nightclubs, perfect for the new dress and shoes just purchased — and ladies note, a group of six is ideal for bottle service and traveling in a group (without the guys) will most likely get you better service. The guys can tee off on some of the best golf courses in the U.S. and then head out for a night on the town.
There are more than 50 championship courses in and around Las Vegas with three being within two blocks of the Strip.
