Las VegasPosted by: Travel Planet, Posted on: 4 months ago
Las Vegas is very populous, but not only with the natives. It is one of most happening cities in the world. Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city for gambling, shopping, and fine dining. It is the largest city in the US state of Nevada. Nicknamed Sin City and the Entertainment Capital of the World, it is situated in the midst of the southern Nevada desert landscape.
Famous for its feeling of “fiesta” Las Vegas is a compact city with many attractions available in the central area around the Strip and downtown. But Las Vegas is also surprisingly family-friendly. In an attempt to appeal to kids, the hotels have spent millions developing technically sophisticated indoor amusement rides such as the Race for Atlantis. Las Vegas lies in a pale brown desert landscape surrounded by barren hills and has a truly unrivaled nightlife. So come up with your pack your party dress and your dancing shoes because behind the velvet ropes lie the most sought-after nightclubs in Las Vegas and the world.
Actually rather than asking when to visit Las Vegas, you should ask when not to go. The city has such a great attraction and charisma that it has become so popular that an “off season” is nonexistent.
But on a serious note there are times to avoid Las Vegas, however, such as during New Year’s, most three-day public holidays, July 4th, and school vacations. Valentine’s Day is also out unless you are planning to get married—fast. Throughout the year, the city is relatively crowded and the weather remains dry and sunny so there is no particular peak season.
Sights of Attraction:
Colorado River: It is a spectacular sight to see during a trip to Vegas, meandering with red rocks and canyons framing it on both sides, leading up to the Hoover Dam. The Colorado River is one of the major water sources for California and Nevada, and not surprisingly it’s a major recreational destination: activities on the river include hiking, biking, rafting and boating.
One of the ways that travelers most often come to see the Colorado River is by visiting the Black Canyon, so-called because of the black volcanic rocks found in the area.
Eiffel Tower Experience: This monumental tourist draw connected to the Paris Hotel and Casino, offers views of the valley and a chance to dine on the finest French cuisine Las Vegas has to offer. Enjoy a ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower in a glass elevator and get an impressive view. Once you’ve reached the observation deck, you’ll have a vista of the entire valley and the sights of Sin City which is not worth missing.
Madame Tussauds Wax Museum: It isn’t everyday that you get to take a photo with a celebrity, or what looks like one. At Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, you’ll find wax figures of everyone from George Clooney to Cameron Diaz, with over 100 wax figures on exhibition at any given time. Each of the wax figures takes several hundred hours to make, and the artistry behind each is impressive.
Clothes to wear:
Wear shorts during the summer especially if you are planning being outside. If you plan to walk the Las Vegas Strip or visit other casinos, wear a very comfortable pair of shoes. The casinos look close together but once you start walking you will soon realize how far apart they are.
Las Vegas can get cold during the winter, especially at night, If you find a sunny spot during the daytime and there is no wind, it will feel great. Wear jeans or slacks all day and carry a jacket, especially at night. Vegas during wintertime can fluctuate between 30 and 65 degrees. Without a doubt Vegas in January is cold at night.
