Visit Las Vegas
Come join the many tens of millions of tourist that visit Las Vegas every year. Billed as the Entertainment and Gambling Capital of the World, Las Vegas has many unique and exciting entertainment venues that offer the ultimate vacation experience. Weather you find yourself participating in the various nightlife venues rubbing shoulders with the stars, adventurous excursions, inter-active museums, glamorous shows, famous international culinary environments, reliving the downtown Freemont Experience or just simply sightseeing the World Famous Las Vegas Neon Lights, you will find yourself among some of the most memorable collaborations of pure lavish, first-class infrastructures of tourism the world!
Amidst the treacherous Mojave Desert, Las Vegas stands as somewhat of an oasis and is home to about one million people. Since Las Vegas is a city that constantly beat the odds, it is only fitting that it is a famous Casino capital of the United States. The city is truly a vacationer’s paradise. Visiting Las Vegas is like visiting another world, since almost everyone is there with the sole intent to have a good time and escape their dull day to day life. It is an escapist’s fantasy, where you can really have whatever you want.
If it’s an old school, or “classic” Vegas experience that you seek, then head towards down town and hit Fremont Street for diners, piano bars or classy casinos. Many would really enjoy their time here but for you young travelers, if you really want that wild, infamous Las Vegas experience, then you need to visit the Vegas strip and stay in one of its legendary hotels/resorts. Check out the Bellagio and its stunning dancing fountains that tower like geysers. Or maybe try the Luxor or Caesar’s Palace for a stride into ancient Egypt and Rome. Enjoy their shopping, gambling and all the happy hours a bar goer could ask for. If you are feeling like enjoying a more tropical experience, then try the Mirage or Mandalay Bay resorts.
It is very possible that you don’t leave your resort that you have selected in your entire stay but each really has its own unique experience. If possible I would highly suggest checking each of them out.
Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas
Experience the pyramids of Egypt—Vegas style. The Luxor, located at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip, makes its presence known throughout the valley by shining the world’s strongest beam of light into the sky; for that matter, it’s supposedly even visible from space. Luxor also offers cutting-edge restaurants, renowned entertainment, fascinating attractions and comfortable accommodations. It has shed much of its ancient Egyptian image and moved into this modern era with a more adult-oriented theme as well as ultra chic bars and lounges.
A present-day wonder, this 30-story pyramid boasts an exterior with 13 acres of black glass. Forget elevators; climbing the slanted walls of the Luxor pyramid requires four “inclinators” to reach guest rooms. The spacious rooms surround the world’s largest atrium, which features shopping, dining and plenty of good entertainment. The casino, at 120,000 square feet, is one of the city’s biggest, offering an array of the latest slot and video poker machines, table games, a race and sports book and the Bruce Buffer Poker Room.

Excalibur Hotel and Casino
The giant Lego-like castle is popular with families—child-oriented attractions include the basement arcade (dubbed the Fun Dungeon) and the medieval-theme Tournament of Kings dinner show—but recent makeovers in all of the property’s rooms make much of it look more grown-up. The immense casino floor has lower table minimums than many other casinos on the South Strip, and restaurants such as Dick’s Last Resort generally serve food more fit for an indentured servant than a king. The casino also offers free monorail service to Luxor and Mandalay Bay. At the Excalibur in Las Vegas, guests will find contemporary rooms, a busy casino, party-like dining experiences, a knightly show and more, all housed in a gigantic castle.
At the heart of the property, escalators and elevators provide easy access to the upper levels. Upstairs, you’ll come across The Steakhouse at Camelot and The Buffet at Excalibur (which features an interactive dessert station as well as six food stations serving an array of cultural cuisines including American, Asian, Italian and Latin), a variety of shops selling everything from jewelry to souvenirs and the Castle Walk Food Court, which is expansive at 25,000 square feet and includes Schlotzsky’s, Cinnabon, Hot Dog on a Stick, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Pick Up Stix, Schlotzsky’s, Tropical Smoothie Café, Auntie Anne’s Soft Rolled Pretzels, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and Popcornopolis.

TI – Treasure Island Hotel and Casino
Treasure Island on the Las Vegas Strip, known simply as TI, is aptly named because of its many hidden treasures. A paradise for adults, it includes some of the hippest hangouts in town, a tropical pool area with a party tub, a variety of restaurants and the first permanent Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas. Treasure Island has met the challenge of accommodating even the most sophisticated tourist, most aggressive card shark and most selective diner. The hotel’s spacious guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing spectacular views of the Strip. They also boast the exclusive Elite Sensational pillow-top beds, flat-screen LCD TVs, small refrigerators, private safes and large soaking bathtubs.
The hotel’s exterior features a sleek marquee with the TI initials. One of Treasure Island’s big features is Gilley’s Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Q, which has something for everyone. The saloon portion offers bikini bull riding contests, multiple bars, a stage, a dance floor and a “big Texas” attitude. The restaurant, which fronts the Strip, features barbecue-style favorites including ribs, big burgers and pork sliders. There’s also an outdoor patio.
