You probably think you know what it’s all about, but spend a little time getting to know this fun town and you’ll discover that it holds much that will surprise you. 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 any one of a number of amazing live shows, from Cirque du Soleil to Penn and Teller, or go window shopping (and celebrity spotting) in the many luxury brand boutiques. Just 30 miles out of town you’ll find the Hoover Dam, a massive piece of engineering that seeks to control the Colorado River. Be sure to add on a trip to the Grand Canyon to see what this river is capable of. Our favourite things to see & do • MIRACLE MILE SHOPS AT PLANET HOLLYWOOD – Walk through the mile of shops and listen and watch the rainstorm, with thunder, fog and lightning. • OUTLET SHOPPING – There are some amazing outlet stores with fabulous prices. You will find great bargains on Nike, Levi’s, Skechers, Calvin Klein, Chanel, Puma and much much more! • GET MARRIED BY ELVIS – The ultimate American wedding. Or maybe a drive-through is more your style? • PLAY THE TABLES – Of course you couldn’t really go to Vegas without trying your luck at any of the hundreds of casinos. • GO SEE A SHOW – There are shows to cater all tastes from Cher to Elton John; from Cirque de Soleil to many concerts and comedians – there will be something to suit everyone. • GRAND CANYON – Whether you drive, fly or helicopter no trip to Vegas is complete without a tour to the Grand Canyon – one of the great natural wonders of the world. • M&M's WORLD – How much chocolate can you eat? Peanut butter M&Ms are highly recommended! • FUN FOR FREE – Watch the beautiful fountain show outside the Bellagio, see the guys and gals fight it out in the Sirens of TI Pirate show outside Treasure Island, watch the Volcano erupt outside the Mirage, and see the laser show downtown at the Freemont Street Experience. • TRAVEL ROUND THE WORLD IN ONE NIGHT – Visit Paris, Venice, New York, ancient Egypt, and ancient Rome all in the same day.
