Las Vegas

Las Vegas is known as 'the entertainment capital of the world'. A self-proclaimed moniker maybe, with which Hollywood and New York City may seek to differ on occasions, but when it comes to the theory and practice of 24/7 revelling, the following of hedonistic pursuits and sheer over-indulgence, Las Vegas wins hands down. Las Vegas lies at the southern edge of Nevada, the driest state in the USA, except when it comes to drinking. Libertarian licensing laws allow for the sale of alcohol 24-hours a day. The city has more hotel rooms than anywhere else in the world, generally inexpensive with midweek stays less costly than weekends. Parking is free in Las Vegas, although a car is not required unless travelling further afield. Taxis, buses and the monorail system are cost effective means of transportation around the city, although walking works for most people. As the saying goes, 'what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas', and as far as money is concerned that's about right. With high and low-rolling casinos present in abundance, Las Vegas is synonymous with gambling - dating back to mobster Bugsy Siegel's day and the opening of the Flamingo in 1946. With no clocks on the walls, constant, cool fresh air pumped in and free drinks and bites on call as long as you're spending, come win or lose the casino remains a compelling option for many. Alternatively, attractions, distractions and worldly pleasures await those with other leanings. Dining, entertainment, musicals and celebrated Cirque de Soleil shows all fi gure large in Vegas. The infamous 'Strip', stretching for around 4 miles from Circus Circus in the north to Mandalay Bay in the south, is awash with free shows such as The Mirage's erupting volcano and the Bellagio's famous fountains. Further north in the compact downtown district, in the area centred around Fremont Street, the spirit of a Las Vegas past lives on, with the emphasis on all things retro. The highlight event here is the Fremont Street Experience, with Viva Vision sound and light shows, Slotzilla ziplining and, on occasion, high profi le free concerts. Events are staged every evening within a 5 block entertainment district closed to traffi c. When it comes to dining out in Las Vegas the choices are almost infi nite. More venues baring the names of celebrity chefs exist in Las Vegas than anywhere else of the same size in the world. Vegas provides everything from the ultimate in gourmet pleasure to fi tting repast at that most celebrated of Las Vegas culinary institutions, the buffet, of which there are hundreds to choose from. Not all buffets are created equal however, and research prior to indulgence is a wise move. Those within the more prominent locations are often the best bet with the majority representing excellent value for money. Shopping in Las Vegas is a serious pastime and the only sure way to guarantee that you leave with what you paid for. Luxury items take centre stage at Crystals and Via Bellagio with Ferrari and Maserati sports cars available for direct sale at The Wynn showroom. More modest outlay is required at Fashion Show Mall, located at the north end of the Strip, and at the Miracle Mile shops at Planet Hollywood or Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian. For something different and somewhat eclectic, the Downtown Container Park, located just off the strip, offers boutique stores, galleries and affordable eateries galore, as well as play areas for the children. Las Vegas is an ideal base from which to explore nearby iconic sights such as Red Rock Canyon, Lake Mead, the Hoover Dam and Lake Tahoe, set amongst horned peaks and mountain pines. The Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona is the biggest draw of them all and a must see for most.
