Did you know Las Vegas is actually the biggest city to be founded in the 20th century ? This desert city is also home to some of the most luxurious hotels in the world, The Bellagio ( Clooney and Pitt have stayed here), the Wynn Las Vegas ( has it’s own Ferrari- Maserati dealership) and the Ritz- Carlton with it’s 36 hole expertly designed golf course.
Las Vegas may be notorious for its casinos, pools, health spas and golf courses, or for those shot- gun weddings, but there’s much more to this so- called ‘Sin City’! Apart from the five- star restaurants, expensive buffets and luxurious casinos, it’s quite possible to have a bargain trip in Vegas. The city is also heavily peppered with nightclubs. Bet on fun
Then chill out at a casino lounge, and watch the floor bustle. As the night grows older, head out for cocktails at Mix at the top of Mandalay Bay. Go ballooning, boating, bowling, mountain biking, or visit Siegfried & Roy’s famous white tigers (right) at the multimillion- dollar habitat at the Mirage. If you tire of dry desert landscape, head to Azure, with it’s 117,0000-gallon saltwater aquarium stage. Go to Hoover Dam, Red Rock National Recreation Area, and the Valley of Fire (pictured below is Elephant Rock).
