Las Vegas! Vegas, Baby! With a weekend to explore Las Vegas we arrived hitting the ground running wanting to pack in as much as we possibly could over a short period of time. Nigh life, music, gambling, entertainment, dancing, walking the Strip and shows in the evening. Driving luxury cars, helicopter tours, exploring the Grand Canyon and marveling at Red Rock Canyon by day. Las Vegas was full of surprises. The following is a Las Vegas travel guide to experience the most out of your vacation to Sin City. It is the best things to do on Las Vegas Strip along with day excursions outside of the city limits. As they say, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
So we aren't in Canada no more! This weekend we actually escaped to Las Vegas so we are going to be spending three days just enjoying winter in the desert and doing cool stuff. And today we're walking down the strip and we're going to show you some of the sights. And the best part – no winter parka right now.
Enough walking for a while. I'm starving. Let's get some dinner. We're going to Shake Shack.
Tell, me. Tell, me! You know what? Nobody does fast food like Americans. They've got it down to a science. It's absolutely unhealthy but so delicious.
We're going to head back to the hotel and get ready for a show. We're going to be seeing the Michael Jackson Show at the Mandalay Bay but unfortunately we can't bring any cameras in there so we won' t be able to show you that but maybe after the show we'll hit the town again and show you the sights. Not maybe! Definitely!
It is so sad to be leaving but it is our last night in Las Vegas so we're going to go out and try and see as much as we can this evening. Let's go wild. Let's gamble.
It is never ending. The lights. The noise. The ding ding ding ding. This is what a casino sounds like twenty-four seven. We see people gambling here at like five in the morning when we get up for breakfast.
What would a trip to Vegas be like without a little gambling? Sam, even looks like an old gambler today with that hat. Oh, I do. Guess what? We're such cheapskates we're playing with pennies. We're going to the penny machine. They don't even have pennies in Canada anymore, so let's use these American pennies up.
Shiver me timbers. I'm playing a pirate game. I'm going to win me some money.
Tell us? Alright, I was a pretty lousy pirate, so I'm going to try my luck with this Owl game. Hoot! Hoot!
Ding ding ding ding ding. Being the supreme cheapskate that I am I'm cutting my loses after two dollars.
So we're here at the Bellagio for the water show. And they have a lot of frequent shows in the evening so we're just waiting for it to start.
So we are now at the Cosmopolitan and we are visiting one of the coolest bars in all of Las Vegas. This behind me is the Chandelier.
This is part of our Travel in the United States series. We're making a series of videos showcasing American culture, American arts, American foods, American religion, American cuisine and American people.
California travel expert Veronica Hill of http://www.CaliforniaTravelExpert.com offers a Las Vegas guide in this episode of "California Travel Tips."
Hosting almost 37 million visitors per year (26 percent from Southern California), Las Vegas is one of America's top destinations.
With an 89 percent occupancy rate, Las Vegas hotel rooms are sometimes in short supply, especially on holiday weekends. Most big-name Las Vegas hotels such as Bellagio, Luxor, and MGM Grand are located along Las Vegas Boulevard between Tropicana and Sahara Avenues. If money is no object, check into the Wynn Las Vegas, a $2.7 billion-dollar resort with some of the most luxurious touches in town.
If you're looking for cheap Las Vegas hotels, stay off the strip. We're staying at the Orleans Las Vegas, a hidden gem off Tropicana that offers some amazing Las Vegas deals.
By day, Vegas takes on a whole new vibe, sort of like a Disneyland for grown-ups. Head to the top of the Las Vegas Stratosphere, the tallest observation tower in the West; ride the Manhattan Express roller coaster at New York, New York Casino; check out the Mandalay Bay Shark Exhibit, or take in the dolphin show at Mirage. For a romantic outing, board a Venetian gondola for a cruise through the Venetian Grand Canals.
The Venetian Las Vegas casino has authentically recreated every nuance of Italian life, from the high-end boutiques at the Grand Canal Shops to the faithful recreation of St. Mark's Square. You'll find several nice Las Vegas restaurants here as well, from Mario Batali's Enoteca San Marco to Wolfgang Puck's Postrio.
Las Vegas is busy on most weekends and holidays, so if you really want to avoid the crowds, come the week before Christmas. You'll be rewarded with some of the cheapest room rates of the year.
We're starting our Saturday morning with a Las Vegas wedding at Paris Las Vegas, followed by a lovely lunch at Mon Ami Gabi. And after a few glasses of wine, and some terrific French cuisine, we hit the town. Just so you know, Las Vegas weddings are most popular in February, for obvious reasons, so be sure you book them well in advance. Elvis Presley married Priscilla Beaulieu at the Aladdin, now known as Planet Hollywood.
For a spectacular birds-eye view of Las Vegas, ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Towering 50 stories above the Las Vegas Strip, the experience is offered both day and night. In fact, you can even get married up here!
One of our favorite free Las Vegas attractions is the Bellagio Fountains Water Show, which begins every half hour during the day, and every 15 minutes at night. For the best views, grab a seat at one of the restaurants along the lake, then finish with a gelato and a peek inside Bellagio's Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.
Other Las Vegas freebies include the MGM Lion Exhibit, and the Mirage volcanoes, which erupt every 15 minutes from dusk until midnight.
Las Vegas traffic can be a nightmare, so to get around town quickly, take the Las Vegas Monorail. Hours are 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. and one-way or day passes can be purchased at the kiosks. It has seven stations along the Strip, beginning at the MGM Grand and ending at the Sahara, one of the few Las Vegas casinos where you can still find $1 blackjack tables.
Once you arrive, there are plenty of pedestrian bridges that will lead you across the busy Strip.
During the summer, temperatures peak at 120 degrees, so naturally the Las Vegas pool scene is where it's at. One of the hottest Las Vegas hotel pools is Caesars Garden of the Gods, with 8 pools, an 18-foot waterfall, and swim-up blackjack tables. The Las Vegas pool party season runs between April and September.
When you're ready to party, take in the Las Vegas nightlife on Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas, or hit the Las Vegas club circuit. You can avoid lengthy lines and get the VIP treatment by purchasing a Vegas Passport, or arriving well before midnight. Hot spots are always changing, but right now the in-crowd hangs at Vanity (Hard Rock), Eve (City Center), Haze (Aria Hotel), Tao (Venetian) and XS (at Encore).
Other party spots include Pure at Caesars, LAX at Luxor, LAVO at the Palazzo and Ghostbar, Moon and Rain at the Palms.
Big-name Las Vegas show tickets sell out months in advance, so book them well before your visit. Some of the lesser-known shows are equally entertaining, and usually available the same day.
Just don't leave Vegas without stopping at the iconic Welcome to Las Vegas Sign, located a mile south of Russell Road. There is a small parking lot on the southbound lane, though it takes a small stroke of luck to get a spot. Elvis is even waiting to take a picture with you — for a small donation.
Las Vegas flights arrive at McCarran International Airport, just a block from the Strip.
Step out of the ordinary world and into the glittering, wild spread of “Sin City,” better known as Las Vegas, Nevada. Test your luck in the numerous casinos lining the city and then indulge in some Las Vegas sightseeing – will you win big or head home empty-handed?
The main drag, also called “The Strip,” is lined with exotic resorts sure to leave an impression on you. These gigantic venues aren’t just about the gambling, though you’ll find craps, poker, and other games running at all hours of the day and night. A trip to one of these extraordinary establishments is a journey unto itself, filled with luxury and excitement. Take in the dancing fountains at the Bellagio, or watch knights jousting at the Excalibur. Explore shopping centers, theme parks, and some of the best dining in the country with menus designed by five-star chefs…all without leaving your hotel.
When the sun goes down and the neon lights wink on, all bets are off. Visit our Las Vegas travel guide to plan your Sin City excursion!
