For the majority of people who haven’t been to Vegas, it’s cemented on their bucket list. It is a must! Home to the Annual World Series of Poker, huge sporting events, world class performers, the renowned ‘Vegas Strip’ stretching for 4.2 miles littered with ginormous blinding neon lights, 8 of the 10 largest hotels in the world and of course the Grand Canyon; it is understandable why planning a trip to the city in the desert for the first time might be quite daunting. Nobody wants to miss a thing but it’s very easy to get caught up in the mayhem. Here are some things to consider:
It would be rude not to have a flutter at one (or some) of the many world famous casinos. Walk in the footsteps of some of the great names of the big screen as you decide which game to play at what table. With complimentary drinks served to all players sit back and relax as you watch your chips stack high and wide…. ‘winner winner chicken dinner’.
‘Sin City’ plays host to some of the biggest sporting events on the planet. With the UFC and Boxing a regular feature it would be great to know ahead of time to make sure you have those all important tickets. That’s not for you? Prefer the electrifying experience of Broadway, arguably the best theatrical production in the world, that’s not a problem. Looking to have your mind blown? World famous magicians will look after you; from individuals to double acts ‘the City of Lights’ always offers options. And there is no need to restrict yourself to just one of these choices, with most performances occurring on a regular basis, a little forward planning will ensure your able to see the lot!
The Grand Canyon is a no brainer. Stretching 300 miles long and 18 miles at its widest point, the epic canyon can be seen from space. But there’s no need to go to those lengths when you can drive there from Vegas in under 5hours. If that seems like too much of an effort there is always the option of taking a helicopter where you are going to get more of idea of the scale of the gigantic canyon from the air.
The Las Vegas strip is a sight to behold. Officially stretching for 4.2miles and surrounded by the major resorts and casinos which help illuminate the city with its endless neon billboards. Its not called the ‘City of Lights’ for nothing. Positioned in the middle of all the attractions, you will be doing very well to miss it.
