Places to stay

Kitsch and quirky or sleek and swanky - there is a world of different accommodation options laid out along this desert oasis. Las Vegas is known for being a city of excessive so expect to find a bounty of hotels to choose from, each with a distinct personality.

To soak up all that Vegas has to offer, The Strip is filled with grand hotel-casinos hotels like The Palazzo, Wynn and Bellagio - the ultimate luxury experience to feel like a high-roller. For something a little more modest Excalibur Resort or Circus Circus Hotel are budget and family-friendly options on The Strip.

If it’s vintage Vegas you’re after, venture to the hotels of yesteryear like The El Cortez and Flamingo that were once owned by mobster Bugsy Siegel. Embrace the bizarre at the eccentric themed hotels dotted all over the city, like The Mirage with its tropical jungle vibes complete with a volcano or New York-New York.

If your idea of a wild night out is more camping than gambling, take a drive and venture to the Grand Canyon National Park where you can stay in lodges or head in the other direction to pitch a tent in the Death Valley National Park. All the places to stay in Las Vegas come with distinct personalities so you’ll be pleased to know there’s always something for you here.

Things to do

Why buy a round-the-world ticket, when Las Vegas has collected all the world’s best cuisines, attractions, casinos and celebrity performers into one heaving city. You can have dinner in the “Eiffel Tower”, go for a gondola ride along a “Venetian” canal or see pyramids that are almost as great as the ones in Giza.

The sampling of other countries doesn’t stop there; Las Vegas also offers up an all-you-can-eat smorgasbord of dining options to overindulge in. Eat at the city’s best buffets, like The Buffet at the Wynn or experience the ultimate in fine dining with famed Michelin-starred chefs at Restaurant Guy Savoy or Joël Robuchon.

The city always offers up a stellar line-up of entertainers and performers so make sure to scour the program of Planet Hollywood’s Zappos theater or see which artists are in residence at the city’s many hotels. There's no shortage of casinos to play, or people to watch, just hit The Strip and take your pick. But there is more to Las Vegas than gambling and grandeur. If you get overwhelmed by everything on offer, the bonus of the city is that the surrounding desert has some of America’s most captivating landscapes.

To the west of the city, Red Rock Canyon is a conservation area brimming with wildlife, rock climbing and 26 different hikes. About an hour north of Las Vegas, you’ll find the otherworldly red and orange sandstone rock formations of the Valley of Fire. Want to see the Grand Canyon but aren’t up for the drive? A sunset helicopter tour is an unforgettable and incredibly stylish way to soar over this epic landmark. Las Vegas is a treasure trove of excess and endless opportunity just waiting to be explored.
