Las Vegas Hotel Deals

Known for its flashing neon, enormous casino resorts, and ridiculously cheap goods and food, Las Vegas is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. Every year, millions of domestic and international tourists flock to the Nevada city, all looking to sample what ‘Sin City’ has to offer.

Las Vegas is served by McCarran International Airport (LAS), which lies eight kilometers south of Downtown Las Vegas. The four-runway airport is one of the top 25 busiest passenger airports in the world, a statistic that provides a clear indication as to how popular the city is. Visitors within the United States are able to visit Las Vegas by road, with Los Angeles being about a three-hour journey from the city.

From the airport, visitors will find buses and taxis to transport them about the city, as well as a monorail system. The city’s hordes of hotels are all accessible using public transports, while motels are also available to those taking the roads.

The city’s most famous tourist attraction is South Las Vegas Boulevard, or the Las Vegas Strip as it is more commonly known. The near-seven kilometer strip – which is not technically within the Las Vegas city limits – is home to the casinos and resorts that have made the city so famous. 15 of the 25 largest hotels in the world can be found here.

At the south end of the strip, visitors will find the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign. The sign, which has appeared in so many television shows and movies, has become an iconic image of the city since its arrival in 1959. What many people don’t realize though it that it stands some 25-feet tall.

A journey north along the strip offers some of the most magnificent, if not a little ostentatious, sites on show within the city. Cavernous casino and hotel resorts populate the street, each with its own unique take on the world.

Traditional casinos resorts like the Bellagio, the Palazzo, and the MGM Grand are interspersed with those adding a little novelty to proceedings. The Venetian, for example, features gondola rides, while Luxor has its own replica of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Of course, this pyramid just happens to shoot a light directly into the darkened Nevada night sky. The Paris hotel and casino features a half-size replica of the Eiffel Tower, whilst New York-New York has its own Statue of Liberty. And all of these have terrific light shows and neon displays after sun set.

The Bellagio may be a traditional hotel and casino resort but its fountains have become known for their spectacle. Programed to move in time with various soundtracks, the fountain show – which runs throughout the day and night – should be on any Las Vegas traveler’s itinerary.

Other popular attractions hosted by hotels on the Las Vegas Strip include the ‘Sirens of TI’, show held at the Treasure Island resort; the Titanic exhibition, hosted by the Luxor; the exploding Volcano of the Mirage; and the circus performers found within Circus Circus.

Once inside these casino resorts, visitors are able to gamble until their heart is content. Table games and slot machines are vast in number, while sportsbooks are available for those wishing to wager on a game. These hotels feature restaurants, cinemas, theaters, and a wide range of other amenities within, meaning there’s more to Vegas than just gambling.

These hotels and casinos also generally offer extremely cheap food. Diners can enjoy a meal for very little change, thanks mainly to the cash pumped in at the casinos. Dining like a king in Las Vegas costs much less than you might expect.

Some of the hotels along the Las Vegas Strip also host entertainment and sporting events. Musical performers have been known to grace the stage since well before Elvis Presley arrived in town. Meanwhile, the likes of Caesar’s Palace, the MGM Grand, and Mandalay Bay have been known to host some of the biggest boxing and MMA matches in history. Vegas on a fight weekend is another thing altogether.

But Las Vegas isn’t all about the decadence and recklessness of casino life. Visitors to the city will find there is plenty more to enjoy with the city and its surrounding area.

The Fremont Street Experience is one of the most popular destinations within the whole city. This five-block long corridor of neon is home to millions of LED lights which make up a canopy arch which shows images and plays music as people walk beneath it. It is here you’ll find some of the busiest bars and restaurants in all of Las Vegas. This is a must for all first-time visitors to the city.

The city of Las Vegas is also home to an array of shopping malls – many of which include a theme, including Paris and Venice – and retail outlets. Those with a fondness for shopping will find plenty on offer here.

Other popular attractions include the Neon Museum, which hosts hundreds of old casino signs that span the entire Las Vegas Strip era; the Pinball Hall of Fame, which houses hundreds of old slot and gaming machinesl the Adventuredome theme park, ideal for children visiting the city; and a Madame Tussaud’s waxwork museum. Las Vegas is also home to a number of public and private golf courses, some of which are considered premium U.S. courses.

It is also possible to take a number of excursions from the city. Included in the list available are visits to the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. Despite the contrasting natural and man-made creation of the two, both are impressive to see, as is the Valley of Fire State Park, another popular excursion destination.

Those in the city for an extended period may even get a kick out of an overnight stay in Los Angeles, which is readily accessible using I-15.

Those looking to stay a little closer to home can enjoy a guided tour of the city itself. A number of specialist tours are available too, including those focusing on the history of Vegas, famous people in Vegas, and even scenes from CSI.

Whatever you choose to do in Las Vegas, the city has a hotel suited to your needs, and that includes those that would prefer to stay in a quieter part of the city away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip.
