Las Vegas

You have to see this place to believe it!

Las Vegas is famous for bright lights, nightlife, weddings, hen and stag breaks and, of course, lots of casinos. It’s 24 hours of entertainment, dining and gambling.

As you would expect from a desert location, the weather in Las Vegas is hot and dry year round with very little rainfall.  The most pleasant time of year to visit is generally in spring when temperatures and humidity are more comfortable.

Las Vegas is the gaming capital of the world – no one in the world does it better or with more glitz!  You’re sure to find a game to take your fancy whether you are an absolute roulette beginner, a fan of slot machines or a dab hand at poker. The four mile Las Vegas Boulevard, which is more famously known as ‘The Strip’, is home to the majority of the more well known gaming venues.

If you fancy seeing a show, you’ll be spoilt for choice as there are over 100 different shows per day to see in Las Vegas with everything from top-name celebs to the magnificent Cirque du Soleil. Tickets get booked up well in advance so talk to us about pre-booking.

And, as if that isn’t enough, for those that love to shop, Las Vegas is also a shopper’s paradise.  You’ll find big designer names are all here on the Strip – from Versace to Prada, as well as brand shops of contemporary cosmetics and luxury goods.  The best shopping experiences are in the mega malls which have hundreds of shops, plenty of eateries and feature flagship department stores including Neiman Marcus, Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue.

For a different and exciting perspective on this extraordinary city, take a helicopter tour and experience a birds-eye view of The Strip, the magnificent Hoover Dam and the panoramic vistas of the Grand Canyon.  From your helicopter, you will have the most amazing views and you might even be tempted to take a trip into the Grand Canyon.

There are lots of other daytime attractions to see when you fancy a break from the frenetic pace of Las Vegas. You could visit some of the many interesting museums, play a round or two on some of the excellent golf courses or take a day trip to see the impressive Hoover Dam.

Leisure & Activities

Las Vegas Theatre
Some of the top stars of entertainment appear in lavish Las Vegas shows, and it’s the ideal opportunity to see them perform live. Many of the larger hotels will feature a show lounge or theatre, usually part of their casino. Booking is easy and you can pre-book a show months in advance before you travel.

Casinos
Las Vegas is home to some of the top casinos in the world, including Caesars Palace, the Golden Nugget and the Bellagio. As well as the gaming tables there are also slot machines dealing out hundreds of dollars in prize money. It’s also quite an experience just wandering around the casinos taking in the unique atmosphere.

Hoover Dam
The Hoover Dam is one of the world’s most impressive engineering projects. Completed in 1935, it spans the Colorado River linking Arizona with Nevada. The waters held back by the dam form Lake Mead, which is the largest man-made lake in the USA. Tours of the structure take place daily.
