Las Vegas Holidays

Get inspiration

Live it up in Las Vegas

Lively Las Vegas is Nevada’s neon jewel and the self-titled ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’ – though the moniker is pretty accurate. You won’t walk more than a few steps on your Las Vegas holiday before stumbling across something to do. Check out the bars, have a flutter in the casinos, browse the enormous shopping malls, and spend your evenings in theatres where the world’s biggest acts regularly perform.

At the heart of it all is the Las Vegas Strip – the large street running through the city’s centre, where the majority of its 24/7 entertainment can be found. Lavish hotels spring up from the concrete on either side – they’re architectural marvels, designed to look like medieval castles, glittering pyramids and even a replica of New York City. Many, like Caesars Palace, MGM Grand and the Bellagio, have sprawling mega-casinos inside. Whether you’re a seasoned poker player or just fancy a go on the slots, there’s something for everyone to try. Even if gambling isn’t your thing, have a stroll around just to take in the atmosphere – a visit to a casino is a must-do on any holiday to Las Vegas.

Despite earning itself the nickname of ‘Sin City’ – thanks to the many risqué shows and multi-million-dollar nightlife and gambling industry – Las Vegas has plenty of family-friendly attractions. The Strip is a visual feast of fountains, huge buildings, street performers and bright lights, so just walking through is an experience in itself for underage travellers. If you want to dip in and out of the raucous main areas, hotels near The Lakes or Summerlin South are a great choice for families. It’s about a 15-minute drive from the Strip and is a pretty exclusive place to stay.

Whether you’re fully embracing the motto of ‘what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’ or you’re planning a family trip to Nevada’s busiest city, there’s something for everyone in America’s neon playground.

Things to do in Las Vegas

Make time to catch one of the Bellagio’s regular fountain shows, where 1,200 geysers shoot hundreds of feet into the sky. Caesars Palace is also worth a wander round, as the half-century old hotel truly embodies the OTT glamour and opulence of Las Vegas. In the mood for a show? The Park Theatre welcomes acts like Lady Gaga, Cher and Aerosmith, while Bellagio’s ‘O’ theatre is where you’ll catch Cirque du Soleil’s most unique performances. Feeling brave? The Stratosphere’s rollercoaster rides – perched nearly a kilometre in the sky – are a must-visit. You can even try out the controlled 830-feet ‘free fall’, if your nerves can handle it.

Away from the bright lights, The Mob Museum throws more light on Las Vegas’ chequered past and has a crime lab, firearm training simulator and in-house distillery to explore. While you’re in Downtown, visit the Neon Museum – a graveyard of Sin City’s most iconic signs. And, of course, no holiday to Las Vegas would be complete without having a flutter in one of the casinos.

Shopping in Las Vegas

You can get your shopping fix in a pretty unique way in Las Vegas. Even if you’re not staying there, the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian is worth a visit. This glamorous hotel has more than 160 shops packed into its ‘streets’ ranging from high-end to souvenir boutiques, as well as 25 places to grab a bite. But the exceptional part of this mall is the canal running through the centre, where you can take a gondola down the Venetian-style waters. Similarly, the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace have been designed to evoke Rome’s glory days, so you’re in for a pretty unforgettable shopping experience.

Luxury lovers should visit The Shops at Crystals. It’s been chosen by exclusive brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada, FENDI and Dolce & Gabbana as a worthy location for their flagship stores. Meanwhile, Miracle Mile is better suited to modest budgets, with more than 200 stores to browse.

Day trips

Las Vegas can be overwhelming, but there are plenty of places to escape to nearby. Visit Blue Diamond, a small town half an hour outside of Vegas that’s home to a historic mine. It’s within the vast Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, where you can hike up Mount Wilson for views all the way across to Las Vegas.

But the most popular day trip from Sin City is undoubtedly the Grand Canyon. Book a tour, hop in a lightweight plane, and fly 70 minutes east to this incredible natural landmark. Spanning for nearly 2,000 square miles, this mile-deep ravine is a wonder to behold. You can also go by helicopter, and fly right down into the canyon. You’ll pass over the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the Colorado River on your way, too.

Best time to visit Las Vegas

Holidays to Las Vegas can be planned for any time of year, as the city’s attractions are open year-round. Summer is a busy time to visit and temperatures climb into the forties – so you might need to hop between air-conditioned malls, or stay in the shade at a pool party to survive the daytime heat.

If you want to avoid the crowds, spring or autumn are the quietest times to visit. Temperatures regularly reach 30oC degrees in September, and stay above 20°C late into November. Spring is cooler, with temperatures ranging from mid-teens in early March, to the high-twenties by May. The weather is mostly dry, too.

Winter is the chilliest and wettest season in Las Vegas, when temperatures can get down to single figures. It’s still a popular time to visit, though, particularly around December and January, as festive celebrations kick off. And as most of the city’s attractions are indoors, there’s no danger of the weather spoiling your trip to Vegas.
