Las Vegas is located in western Nevada and has a population of about 1,ooo,ooo people. It enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year. If there was ever a city that shouldn’t be it is Las Vegas but it has managed to beat the odds continually. Its rat pack style and casinos have made this city become almost legendary.
As with any city, attractions, services and amenities are incredibly important to the success of that city. For example, north of the border, Edmonton, Alberta has some great places to visit like West Edmonton Mall, Edmonton Valley Zoo and service providers like Performance Chiropractic + Sports Rehab to name a couple. Here are the top attractions in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Be prepared to be blown away if your ideas about Las Vegas still look like an old Super 8 movie. The Las Vegas of the 21st century is not just a city; it is like visiting a pleasure planet. It is a total escapist fantasy where everyone comes for a good time. If you are looking for a taste of classic Vegas, head downtown to Fremont Street and into a world of classic casinos, piano bars, and old school cocktail lounges.
Las Vegas Strip
If everything in Vegas is big, it is even a hundred times bigger in the strip. We are not talking about casinos but mythical cities where everything is geared around you having the time of your life. Whatever mood suits you best, you will definitely find it here. If you fancy 3 days of unbelievable indulgence, the Bellagio and her incredible dancing fountains are the perfect places to be. The Caesars Palace or the Luxor is reminiscent of what ancient Rome and Egypt might have been like if they had discovered happy hours, electricity, and cocktails a little sooner.
If you are feeling more tropically inclined, you can kick off your heels and feel the sand between your toes at the Mandalay and Mirage Bay resorts. These resorts on the strip are so self-contained and vast, it is possible to land in one and not want to step outside again for the rest of your stay. But you should step out to explore the unique themes of some other sampling this incredible city has got to offer from shows, dining, and shopping experiences.
Mother Nature still has a few surprises of her own if this neon paradise still isn’t enough for you as the Grand Canyon is a half-a-day drive away and the Valley of Fire is about 50 miles out of town. Las Vegas dazzles like no other City and she is here to remind us that we are here on earth not for a long time but for a good job. Las Vegas promises to be one of the best time you ever had.
