Where else can you visit a circus, New York, Paris, Venice and a pyramid in the same day? Whether you’re headed to the casinos or the shows, Las Vegas is another US city that never sleeps. While casinos are a big draw, there’s no lack of entertainment, nightlife or restaurants—but some of the best entertainment is sitting down for a rest and people-watching. Vegas buffets are legendary and used to have the reputation of being low-priced. Those days are pretty much gone, but most hotels and some restaurants still offer good value with lots of variations. There are also many specialty restaurants, such as the Gospel Brunch (House of Blues; line up early to get tickets as it regularly sells out) and 2 dozen kinds of cheesecake (Cheesecake Factory). While movies and CSI: Investigation are largely shot on Hollywood sets, you’ll see many outdoor shots used. And yes, you can get married at one of the numerous chapels, even a drive-through...ask your counsellor for details.
Here are a few recommended sites:
- Bellagio Hotel’s: free evening fountain light and sound show. Check out its Eiffel Tower replica: built at half scale, the detail is intriguing and the view from it is terrific.
- Mirage Hotel’s Volcano Eruption: runs every 15 minutes from 6 to11:30 pm.
- Imperial Palace’s Auto Collections is one of the world’s largest and finest car collections showcasing antique, classic, muscle and special interest cars (and if you win big at a casino you can buy your favourite).
- Other attractions with the explosion of activities are the “The Fremont Street Experience”. A portion of the street is covered with screens and shows are projected at night, but otherwise it’s like the strip. There is lots of entertainment, including three stages with live bands.
