Travel Tuesday | VEGAS!

For this week’s Travel Tuesday we’re heading to Las Vegas.

Sin City, America’s Playground, the Entertainment Capital of the World … all worthy names for this Nevada hot spot. Think of Vegas as a theme park rather than a city – it can awe as much as it can overwhelm, and that’s part of the appeal. This is a city where inhibitions are not welcome: Every night, Las Vegas draws pleasure mongers to the brightly lit Strip like moths to a flame. While you may not want to go as far as to reenact “The Hangover,” you certainly don’t want to leave without experiencing a bit of “Viva Las Vegas.”

Today, Las Vegas can provide any kind of vacation you can imagine. You can opt for the traditional high-roller getaway complete with all-nighters at the blackjack table or TAO Nightclub. Or you can make it all about luxury with visits to hotel spas, high-end boutiques and gourmet restaurants. Las Vegas is also a great jumping-off point for outdoor activities, such as hiking in Red Rock Canyon or visiting the Hoover Dam via a helicopter tour. You can even bring the kids along: Underage travelers will get a kick out of a Cirque du Soleil performance, the Bellagio Fountain show, and the Neon Museum.

The Las Vegas Strip is just over four miles long. It runs along Las Vegas Boulevard, directly below Sahara Avenue. On the southern end, the Strip starts at Mandalay Bay. It extends all the way up to the SLS Las Vegas, the last hotel below Sahara Ave.
There are 30 primary casinos on the Las Vegas Strip… and You’ll find plenty more off the strip, as well as downtown.

Whether you’re heading to Las Vegas to celebrate, gamble, attend a conference, or catch your favorite musician’s residency, you’ll find it in the city where visitors go all out for entertainment.
Vegas has something for every taste, and it’s a matter of honing in on the restaurants, shows, bars, and hotels that most appeal to you. Whether you’ve scored Lady Gaga tickets and a reservation at Elio, or you’re keen on trying your luck at the Mirage casino, there’s no wrong way to do Vegas.

That’s all for now, I’m Katelyn O’Shaughnessy, join me next week for another Travel Tuesday.
