The Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas, is synonymous with a zappy nightlife merging with the day, busy casinos, plush eateries, non-stop shopping, amazing shows, and penthouse suites. The city’s bright lights and sounds give a sensory overload, while the live night entertainment, swanky hotels, and mega casino complexes are akin to a fantasy. Vegas has history and offbeat experiences, discoverable in the “Freemont Street Experience” in old downtown. This fun street is lined with hotels, shops and casinos under a canopy that transforms into a huge screen for night audio and video shows. The famous Strip is a north/south street with large casino-hotels, and marked by the Stratosphere tower. Walking along the Strip is a fun way to get a feel of the real Vegas.
Did you know? It is estimated that at least 1,000 people live in underground tunnels, beneath Vegas! Also, when viewed from outer space, the Las Vegas Strip is the brightest place on Earth.

Best time to travel to Las Vegas
Spring (March-May) is the best time, with pleasant weather and cool evenings. Vegas has fewer visitors at this time, so reasonably-priced hotel rooms are available. Autumn in Vegas (September-November) is great, as heat begins fading and crowds thin out. Temperatures are comfortable through September and October, and winter sets in by November. June to August is peak summer, the worst time to visit. Day temperatures go as high as 41°C, early mornings and evenings are cooler. July and August experience some short-lived rain showers. Nevertheless, summer remains a popular visit time, so hotel rates are slightly higher. Vegas winter (December-February) can get chilly. Excellent weather and lively parties make it a great time to visit. The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo is in December.
