Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas in the U.S. state of Nevada is internationally renowned as one of the world’s top tourist destinations. The city has been a popular setting for films and Las Vegas is packed with countless celebrities including the tennis legend and native Andre Agassi.

Nicknamed “Sin City” for its adult entertainment industry it is also the world’s biggest gambling area with the Las Vegas Strip being its core and home to some of the most popular gaming casinos like the Bellagio, Caesars Palace, MGM Grand, Casino Royale, Mandalay Bay and the Luxor Hotel & Casino just to name a few.

As the old saying goes “What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas” and many come here to escape their daily lives and routines while others migrate here permanently in search of the promise of a better life as the Nevada constitution states no personal income tax for residents. Others come here for the ease of getting hitched or divorced with Las Vegas being known as the marriage capital of the world (also has the highest divorce rate).

The grandeur of Las Vegas with its flashing lights everywhere is of course designed to entice you to gamble, however that is not the only attraction with plenty to do and see like the Fremont Street Experience, a gondola ride at the Venetian, Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay, the adventuredome theme park and of course watching a circus act, live musical or comedy performance.

For a bit more of an educational experience, the Mob Museum on Stewart Avenue showcases an exhibit on the law and mob history. Learn more about gansters and an era of time when the famous Bugsy Siegel who built the Flamingo Casino, brought the mob to Las Vegas.

For adrenaline and speed freaks the Las Vegas Motor Speedway is the place to be. The speedway is part of the NASCAR series and the track also hosts the NHRA Mello Yello drag racing series.

If you need a break from all the excitement then see some nature and experience some peace at the Las Vegas Natural History Museum with a great wildlife room and a live shark exhibit.
