Las Vegas is a city that needs no introduction.

Las Vegas is a city that needs no introduction. But with its five-star resorts, world-class restaurants and boutiques, and spectacular entertainment and nightlife, Nevada’s largest city has long outgrown its adult playground connotation. It has truly earned its spot as one of the world’s premier tourist destinations, and no one can accuse Las Vegas of being a one-trick gambling pony these days.

The famous Las Vegas Strip is still lined with flashy mega-resorts, but venture past the flashing neon and dazzling lights, and you may be surprised by what you find. Each grand building is a destination unto itself, bursting with magnificent amenities and attractions for all. For the fashionista, there’s Caesars Palace and the designer boutiques at The Forum Shops. Shore lovers will adore The Beach at Mandalay Bay, which is miles away from the typical hotel pool. Sun-seekers can also soak up rays at resort pools at the Hard Rock Hotel, Palms and pretty much anywhere in between. From Bellagio’s world-class spa to roller coasters and more at Circus Circus, Strastosphere and New York – New York, each day in Las Vegas can be a whole new vacation. There are live animal exhibits to be enjoyed at many resorts, like Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage.

As spectacular as the resorts are, the events they offer nearly nightly are just as impressive. Las Vegas shows are as well-known as the city itself, and they don’t disappoint. Masquerade balls, magic shows, comedy acts, headliner concerts, theatrical performances, symphonies – the list goes on and on. No matter when you visit, there’s a show to see. If a dose of education with your vacation is appealing, we’ve got options for that too. Springs Preserve is a fun way to learn all about the desert surrounding Las Vegas and the Nevada State Museum also features many informative exhibits and displays.

To fuel any Las Vegas getaway—however frenetic or tranquil—you’ll need plenty to eat, and the city has that more than covered. Although the once ubiquitous 99-cent shrimp cocktail is all but extinct, it’s unlikely that you’ll starve on any budget. From specials and buffets at practically every resort to five-star, celebrity-chef restaurants—even a burger with a $777 price tag!—Las Vegas is a food lover’s dream.

Hands down, Elvis said it best. “Viva Las Vegas!”
