Las Vegas is the dice-rolling, club-hopping party capital of America, and there’s no other city that puts so much emphasis on having a good time. Walk down the Strip, Las Vegas’s infamous neon-lit central artery, where you’ll find the city’s most luxurious casinos. Stop by to admire the Venetian with its Venetian Canal, the Bellagio with its massive choreographed fountains, and the Mirage with its Polynesian volcano. Head inside if you’re feeling really lucky, where the staff will keep bringing you fresh drinks while you try your hand at poker or blackjack.
Gambling isn’t the only thing Las Vegas is famous for; its entertainment scene is the envy of cultural cities all over the world. There are always excellent shows by mind-blowing magicians, elite musicians, and even the incredibly artistic acrobatic company known worldwide as Cirque du Soleil. For a truly unforgettable day trip, rent a car and drive out to the jaw-dropping Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam, one of the most impressive structures ever built in the United States.
