Las Vegas Overview

Las Vegas is America’s real life Sin City. It’s the city where notorious rapper Tupac Shakur met his end in a brutal assassination; a city with a main strip so bright you’ll find yourself wearing shades at night; a city where you can get drunk, and then get married; a city where you can win big, or lose it all.

Take a free class (available at most casinos) on how to beat the dealer at poker, blackjack, roulette, or pretty much any other gambling game you’d like to try your hand at, before hitting the infamous casino floors at Caesar’s Palace, The Bellagio or the MGM Grand. Bet in nickels or notes, or hang off the lever of a one armed bandit and hope luck – or, in the case of poker, a little bit of well-honed skill – sees you go home quits, or even covering your hotel bill.

It’s not all about the casinos, though. Regular fight nights bring world class boxing to the strip and a buzz that is unmatched, while the range of high-class hotels is enormous, and incorporates moments of pure luxury like the perfect rainforest replica (birds and all) that is the Mirage Hotel pool, or the Venetian Hotel’s astonishing spa facilities. Stroll into the more affordable Liberace Museum for a taste of the decadent performances of the great pianist and his extraordinary costumes, or climb the Stratosphere Tower for a soaring view over it all, perhaps strapping yourself into the 160ft reverse bungee jump while you’re there.

Of course, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, which is probably something worth telling your stomach, after you indulge in culinary delights like deep fried Oreos and supersized shrimp cocktails in the lowbrow buffets, or lap up the free drinks that come with laying down a few chips on the green felt, regardless of your stake.

Then there are the shows (though watch your wallet, they can be seriously pricey), the flights out over the Grand Canyon, and collecting something borrowed and something blue ready for that shotgun wedding. Not much is certain in Vegas, but one thing is: you won’t forget your time in these glowing lights in a hurry.

Every year in June and July there's the world series of poker, a large event held in the Rio resort and casino with the best poker players all over the world. So remember what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Go, and have fun!
