Las Vegas is a notorious play world full of lights, expensive stores, extravagant hotels, casinos, entertainment and street performers in the middle of the desert. If you think about it, it’s pretty weird right? You can already see the city from miles away when standing in the desert because of the familiar neon lights that light up this city. Las Vegas is known for its entertainment industry: you will never get bored here.
The most famous part of Las Vegas is the Strip. All the grand hotels and casino’s are on this street and you can even take a rollercoaster-ride in the New York–New York hotel. Walk through the famous hotels, go window-shopping and secretly watch people spend their money in casinos. Las Vegas is (sadly) a place where you spend money, lots of it. Luckily, the Bellagio Fountains are free to watch. Every half hour, a lake in front of the Bellagio hotel explodes in a beautiful ballet of fountains. The 1214 spritzers shoot water in the air along with Frank Sinatra music and you can’t miss this when coming to Vegas. There are more free shows in front of the famous hotels, but the Bellagio Fountains is by far the best show.
If you do have money to spend, Cirque de Soleil is a must-do for the Vegas experience. This circus is part of Las Vegas for 20 years now. At Mandalay Bay, you can visit Shark Reef Aquarium. This aquarium has over 2000 animals and 15 species of sharks. You can touch, hear, see and experience the beautiful underwater life here. If you want to experience the Vegas nightlife, you should go clubbing in LAX, a club in hotel Luxor. To spend the night, you can book a room in one of the expensive hotels at the Strip close to the club, or go a bit further for a more affordable price. If you are driving an RV, you can stay in the Oasis RV Resort.
Another must-do is going downtown Las Vegas, to visit a small, old part of the city: Fremont Street. This street is an experience by itself. You can take a ride on the SlotZilla Zipline, which goes right over the street, 114 feet high. You fly under the world’s largest video screen (1500 feet long) as a roof! After dusk, the Vivia Vision light show plays on this video screen once an hour.
