Las Vegas a.k.a. ‘sin city’ is a popular destination for both international and American tourists every year, millions of people will visit the strip in the summer months alone and will no doubt lose plenty of money but have a great time whilst doing it. Las Vegas vacations are a great way to get away from it all, if you have a hectic lifestyle and you always seem to be rushing somewhere then just take a week or two off and hit Vegas, you will forget all about it with amount of things to do there!
People think Las Vegas is all about gambling and while that may be largely true as it does revolve around hundreds of casino’s it is not all there is to do there, there is more than one side to Vegas. Rather than hitting the blackjack or roulette table as soon as you get there, why not see the sights and experience the other side to the city
You can arrive at McCarran International Airport, drop your bags off at the hotel and then go on a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon after that you could get something to eat and then see a show, maybe Tom Jones or Wayne Newton who are regular performers. If singing and dancing isn’t your thing then you could go and visit the MGM Grand and see if there is some boxing on, there is no shortage of world title fights on there, only the biggest and the best get to fight in Vegas, the likes of Floyd Mayweather Jr, Bernard Hopkins and Manny Pacquiao.
Vegas is also renowned for its adult entertainment sector, there are plenty of strip clubs to choose from when you’re there and these helped Vegas get the name ‘sin city’, it’s from all the people who go there, have a bit too much to drink and then make a ‘mistake’. But you know the saying, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!
When you go to Vegas it is like stepping into a dream world, it is unusual experience, you are in the middle of a desert and when you are flying in you see absolutely nothing until you are about to land when you get the glimmer of the lights coming closer and closer. You then head for the strip and see flashing lights all around you, none stop action wherever you look and people trying to sell you tickets or get you in their casino/hotel. Even though you are on a relaxing Las Vegas vacation it feels like it is none stop action throughout your trip and it’s over all too soon.
Of course you will want to hit a casino at some point in your stay and the secret to this is set aside a certain amount of money you are prepared (and can afford) to lose and then only take that in with you, don’t take credit cards or your whole wallet, this is how people lose lots of money there, they get carried away. Work your way around the table have a bit of fun on the slots, blackjack, roulette or craps, it is definitely worth a go if you have never done it before. Money won is better than money earned! If you win a decent amount then it’ll make your trip and you won’t be able to wait to get back there again, if you lose then so be it, you’ve had a fantastic trip and it was worth it to you. Las Vegas vacations are certainly one of the best ways to spend your time off from work.
