Things to do on holiday in Las Vegas

We all know that Las Vegas is the gambling capital of the world. The resorts are exclusive and opulent, and the service is world-class. There are, however, a few other attractions to bear in mind when visiting this scintillating city. The Linq Project is a brand new observation wheel opposite the iconic Caesars Palace and provides jawdropping views and a party atmosphere in the queue! It’s a view only rivalled by a helicopter tour – the Silver Cloud Tour takes in The Grand Canyon before flying over the famous strip. Epic. The Vegas Nights Tour is the ultimate precursor to a fun night out – enjoy a glass of bubbly above the twinkling neon playground.

Pool parties are the hip hang out in Vegas and the top hotels know how to cause a splash. Check out Wet Republic at MGM Grand or Rehab at Hard Rock Hotel. And why not follow the cool crowd to Nobu Restaurant at Caesars Palace? The hotel’s Bacchanal Buffet is also something special with 500 unique items available, featuring fresh seafood, Asian and Mexican dishes. At Paris Hotel diners are in for an exclusive treat at Gordon Ramsey Steak.

Get ready to rumble! Boxing is big business in Sin City and hosts the biggest baddest bouts seen anywhere in the world. MGM Grand Garden Arena is the main venue where the atmosphere regularly reaches fever pitch; Mayweather vs Maidana was a thrilling recent battle for example drawing in crowds of adoring boxing fans. 

Ready for some world-class entertainment? Mariah Carey (only the best-selling female artist of all time!) has just confirmed that she will begin a residency at The Colosseum at Cesars Palace in May 2015, joining the likes of Britney Spears who recently signed a two-year residency deal at Planet Hollywood. Need we say more? Also look out for Elton John and Celine Dion, also residencies at Caesars Palace. At Luxor Hotel discover a timeless story at the Titanic Artefact Exhibition or test your fears at Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef Aquarium. For the ultimate in Sin City showstoppers you simply must experience Cirque Du Soleil. Mystere at Treasure Island, The Beatles Love at The Mirage and Michael Jackson One at Mandalay Bay are mindblowing displays of pure imagination.       

Free entertainment is never far away in Vegas. The Bellagio’s ever popular Water Fountain Show is a must see tourist attraction, as is the Erupting Volcano at The Mirage. Shopping is also a big draw on the streets and boulevards of the city. Flash your cash at the highly recommended Forum Shops, Crystals Shopping and Miracle Mile at Caesars Palace, Aria Designer Shops and Planet Hollywood respectively.

Get married by Elvis at a drive-thru wedding chapel. Only in Vegas!

It’s not just about bright lights and casinos in Las Vegas. Take some time out on your visit to Sin City to see the Hoover Dam.
