Regarded as the “Entertainment Capital of the World,” Las Vegas is a travel destination par excellence. It is not only the largest city in Nevada, but also the largest city in the entire Mojave Desert. With world famous casinos, gaming, live shows, shopping, restaurants, and five star hotels, the city provides some of the very finest in tourist amenities and attractions. To be sure, this vacation spot is no one trick pony.
Las Vegas is, of course, known for its fabulous “Strip,” which is four-mile stretch of road that features 15 of the 25 largest hotels in the world, with a total room count over 60,000. Due to their masterful architecture and interior designs, many of these hotels are attractions in and of themselves, and feature fine dining and free shuttle service to affiliated casinos. In the casinos, you’ll find everything you could possibly want in gaming entertainment, including blackjack, poker, roulette, and slots.
In addition to the gaming industry, due to consistently warm temperatures and a desert climate, Las Vegas offers outdoor attractions and opportunities. From golfing to hiking, and from ballooning to skydiving, the city offers a balance of extreme and casual activities, all of which provide visitors with unique perspectives of the Mojave Desert and Las Vegas itself.
