Las Vegas holidays

Who is Las Vegas suitable for?
Destination Known variously as 'Sin City' and 'The Entertainment Capital of the World', Las Vegas is one of the world's most iconic cities and has featured in innumerable films and TV shows. It is certainly an acquired taste - a place of scorching heat, luminous neon signs and glaring excess and opulence - and it remains one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world. Located in Clark County, Las Vegas is the largest city in Nevada. It is surrounded by the barren wilds of the Mojave Desert and boasts a fantastic 310 sunny days a year! The majority of Las Vegas's most famous attractions are located on The Strip - which is actually outside the city limits. Las Vegas is a ten hour flight from the United Kingdom.

Las Vegas's casinos must surely rank as some of the most famous buildings anywhere in the world - amongst them Caesar's Palace, Casino Royale and the MGM Grand. There are iconic sights around every turn - like the replica eiffel tower, the Bellagio Fountains and the Vegas Vic Cowboy sign. This is primarily a place where groups of friends and couples gamble away a decadent few days. It does however have plenty of attractions for the whole family to enjoy - with zoos, aquariums and museums. The surrounding countryside is rich in stunning desert scenery - barren martian landscapes of roughly hewn red rocks and canyons. Las Vegas is a popular destination all year round with its remarkably mild winters and its hot summers. Prices tend to jump at the weekends when there is always a large influx of tourists.
For Singles

When: Apart from the major holidays in the US, there isn't really a peak season for visiting - so when you go entirely depends on whether you feel you can stand the mid thirties celsius daytime temperatures of the midsummer months or not!

Where: There are a number of interesting museums around the city. The Mob Museum traces the history of the iconic gangs of the country and their conflict with the law. The Neon Museum assembles a fine collection of Vegas's luminous signs whilst the Titanic Artefact Exhibition showcases relics from the downed cruiser.

Why: Whilst Las Vegas is really the kind of place to experience with others, there are still a number of interesting attractions for the single traveller. The countryside of the Mojave Desert is also well-worth seeing.

For Groups

When: If you want to catch Vegas at its most exuberant and decadent, why not head out on one of its major holidays - Labour Day and New Year's Eve are particularly busy.

Where: For adrenaline junkies, there is plenty to do in Las Vegas - Indoor skydiving and the Skyjump will both get the pulses racing! By night, take to the roulette wheels of some of the city's legendary casinos - The Mirage, Caesar's Palace and the MGM Grande on The Strip are good starting points.

Why: As well as daredevil pursuits and gambling, Las Vegas offers some fantastic shopping malls and an excellent variety of evening entertainment - comedy shows, magic and live music. Whatever you end up deciding to do, it stays in Vegas of course!

For Couples

When: Head out in the midweek to beat the crowds and experience a (relatively) peaceful Vegas. Alternatively, pick a weekend at any point between January and December to experience the natural Bedlam-state of the city!
