Las Vegas has inspired many of myths and legends. This is an ultimate entertainment city and it has it all. Gambling here was actually illegal between the 1910 and 1931, but since then, the City blossomed. Over 39 million people visit Las Vegas each year and seventeen of the 20 biggest hotels in the U.S. are in Las Vegas. Even if You never gamble only would like to try it just a little bit but You have no experience, many hotels offer free lessons for beginners. But it is not only about gambling - the city has something to offer for everyone. The Vegas Strip - the famous flashy super street lined with neons, casinos, boutiques and mega-resorts. Approximately 4.2 mile long street with each building being a destination of it’s own. From Cirque du Soleil show at Bellagio and it’s world class spa, to Caesar’s Palace beautiful design celebrating antique design with it’s more than 160 boutiques, to roller coasters, resort’s pools or animal shows Vegas has it all. There are events offered almost every night in all of the mega-resorts and their are as impressive as the places themselves. You can see whatever You’d like from magic shows, balls, comedy gigs, concerts, theatre or even symphonies - the list just goes on. There is actually always a show somewhere.
Vegas can offer your adrenalin action not only by the tables but for example while you take a little dip in the water - with couple of sharks. Enjoy this experience in the Shark Reef Aquarium - just You, marine life and among them about 30 sharks in more than 1,300,000 gallons of water. Another way to start get adrenalin pumping is to get hooked on a harness and zip line down over the Freemont street above people walking the street. Not enough? Come to Buffalo Bill’s In Primm and get dropped down the Desperado Turbo Drop. It is a 255-foot dive right to the ground and one of the world’s tallest and fastest machines of it’s kind. After that, take a ride on the coaster New York-New York. Probably the most memorable ride You can experience is one on the Stratosphere tower (over 900 feet high). Choose one of the four options The SkyJump, the Big Shot, the X Scream, or Insanity. And if You think that these names exaggerate character of rides, just hop in and they shall prove You wrong.
If You by any chance experience any of these You will get hungry either way. Anyway you will, the city has so many places to see, visit and experience and that just burns your energy. From buffets and fast food options to celebrity-chef restaurants or even a 777$ hamburger. A fan of steaks is covered as well. Actually Las Vegas was named “the best place to eat a stake on the planet” by one of luxury-life style magazines. There are quite several places to go get some, Carnevino at the Palazzo , Old Homestead Steakhouse at Caesars Palace or Stripsteak at Mandalay Bay for instance.
Once in Nevada and Las Vegas especially, one shouldn’t miss out on an opportunity to see the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. Both great landmarks, Grand Canyon - work of nature, Hoover damn - build by man, both connected by the Colorado river. Many tours, helicopter flights or kayaking or rafting are offered for those, who find just looking around a not exciting enough.
