Las Vegas has long-enjoyed a reputation as being the party capital of the world, but it’s got so much more than the obvious casino attractions.
So if you’re looking to get to grips with this dazzling all-American city, then check out some of these attractions that range from major sporting occasions that feature the stars of the betting sites, to the latest in cutting-edge sounds.
As Las Vegas was one of the first global locations to really take to neon lights, it is something of a photographer’s paradise. A quick drive down the world-famous Las Vegas strip will instantly reveal all of the gaudy, yet captivating charms of spectacular casino resorts such as Caesar’s Palace, the Venetian, and of course, the chintzy half-size Eiffel Tower outside the Paris Las Vegas casino hotel.
As well as hosting the casinos, the massive hotels also regularly host major sporting events. And this spring, the legendary boxer Mike Tyson takes to the stage at Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club in the MGM Grand to recount tales from his infamous career. The resort also hosted the recent Mayweather vs Pacquiao bout, and so be sure to visit Betway.com to find out more information about upcoming matches and sporting tips from Las Vegas and beyond.
As Las Vegas attracts millions of people each year, it has forged a great reputation for its food. Whether it’s checking out Las Vegas’ legendary burger scene, or perusing the city’s impressive selection of Mexican restaurants, (be sure to check out the cheap and cheerful Tacos El Gordo), you can be sure that you won’t go hungry in this famously-foodie city.
As well as providing the likes of Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra with an extension of their careers, Las Vegas has also provided an outlet for more cutting-edge sounds. Dance fans should sample the extravagant dancefloor attractions at Light at Mandalay Bay. And all indie aficionados would be well-served by visiting the Beauty Bar on Fremont Street that gives you the chance to listen to live music under the stars.
The great outdoors
And finally, it’s worthwhile remembering that Las Vegas is located in the expansive Mojave Desert and offers a great chance to explore this magical part of the US. In particular the evocatively-named Valley of Fire and Red Rock Canyon can instantly make you feel like you’ve landed on another planet!
So from seeing the stars of betting sites in action in the boxing ring, to consuming the world’s largest burger, there’s a never-ending selection of attractions to enjoy in Las Vegas!
