Las Vegas — Introduction
Feeling lucky? Then Las Vegas is the city for you, whether you’re looking for sunshine, fun, thrills or spills you’ll find them in this dazzling metropolis.
Nevada’s arid desert didn’t seem the most auspicious location for a world-class city but Las Vegas isn’t like any other city.
It bills itself as the entertainment capital of the world and with great shopping, fine dining, casinos and concerts from some of the biggest names in show business it truly lives up to this mantle.
Las Vegas’ strip is at the heart of its entertainment offering, with giant casinos and daily live shows.
Away from the centre of the city there’s a good selection of championship golf courses, raceways offering thrilling driving experiences, and unusual attractions such as the Neon Museum – a collection of the city’s brightest light installations.
But it’s the awesome Grand Canyon that demands a trip from the city. This natural wonder’s incredible peaks and valleys can be enjoyed by helicopter or step out over the cliff edge onto the Skywalk glass bridge.
