Las Vegas Guide

“What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”.

Except for this experience, this came back with me.

This guide will give you the information you need to know in preparation for your visit to Las Vegas. From the moment you arrive at the airport it’s quite clear you’re in Vegas, as even the airport looks like a casino, also you couldn’t really miss this huge welcome sign!

Las Vegas Airport


Downtown Vegas, the original strip, also know as the best area for casinos according to many locals, so well worth a visit.
The Mob Museum can be found here, where you can learn about the history of Vegas and how its foundations began, standard admission is around $26.95.

The Linq High Roller Observation Wheel

See Vegas from an entire different angle, with an unforgettable ride up, to 550 feet into the clouds. Lasting around 30 minutes and can be done both day or night, tickets start from around $22. The view is gorgeous, however it’s a challenge trying to get good pictures through the glass of the bubble.

Vegas Strip

Stroll around Caesar’s palace or stick around for the Bellagio fountain show which happens in every 30 minutes. The area is full of hotels, shops and casinos, if you venture further up the strip you will find the iconic Vegas sign, perfect for your next profile picture.

Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel tower viewing deck, sitting at half the height of the actual Eiffel tower will provide a view of the Vegas from an incredible perspective. Tickets start at around $16, however they have great offers on several different packages, so worth checking for the best deal.

Vegas Strip at Night

Watch the sunset as it disappears behind the Bellagio to discover why it’s known as the city of lights. With many live entertainment shows and circus acts to watch there is always something to do, if nothing else you can try your luck in the casinos.

The Grand Canyon

Surround yourself in the spectacular landscapes of the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Nothing will quite prepare you for the moment you first set your eyes on the canyon, a photo simply doesn’t do it justice. This unforgettable experience cost me around $120 including lunch and transport, worth every cent. A bus will collect you from your hotel and take you on the long drive to the Canyon. Stops on route usually include other tourist hot spots such as the Hoover dam and Route 66.

When booking the attractions, shop around as many websites offer you different packages, you can save a lot of money this way.
