Las Vegas Overview
There’s no place like it in the world. Las Vegas, a city of half a million people carved out of unforgiving desert landscape is one of the most famous cities in the world, and certainly one of the most provocative. You probably think you know what it’s all about, but spend a little time getting to know this fun city and you’ll discover it’s many surprises. To begin with, as fabulous as the casinos are, you don’t actually need to throw your money into a slot machine to have a good time. Check out one of the amazing live shows, from Cirque du Soleil to famous pop stars, or go window shopping (and celebrity spotting) in the many luxury brand boutiques. For a truly unforgettable experience, ride over the blushing cityscape and golden desert in a helicopter at sunset.
Getting around the city is easy. Everything originates from the main strip. You can walk, jump in a cab, hop on the bus, ride the Las Vegas Monorail, or stretch out in a limousine to cruise in style. If you’re planning on booking car hire in Las Vegas and going on a road trip, most of our hotels offer valet parking (at a charge). Enjoy your own set of wheels to get about town or drive through the Mojave Desert to Red Rock Canyon or Hoover Dam, before venturing further afield.
