With world-renowned shows, famous gambling destinations, designer stores, beautiful golf courses, and relaxing spas, Las Vegas is a great destination for anyone who wants to enjoy extravagance.

Many people have seen Hollywood movies featuring Las Vegas, and the real city will not disappoint. The Strip is the most well known section of Vegas, with the Bellagio fountains, the Venetian, MGM Grand, and other well-known sights on the 4m (7km) road. Fremont Street is a great place to experience Vegas’ past glory, and the outskirts of Vegas showcase gorgeous views of the desert and world-renowned golf courses, spas, and resorts.

If you wish to golf, stroll downtown to shop, or explore the beautiful scenery outside of Las Vegas, it is best to keep temperatures in mind when planning your vacation.
