The Light Fantastic!

Las Vegas is a 24 hour city. I have not been anywhere where there is so much going on at all hours of the day.

This is an amazing and yet eerie place. On the one hand lots of fantastic opulent buildings with fantastic shopping and resturants. Yet on the other hand you are in the middle of a desert region and everything around you has been created just for the illusion.

I would recommend a visit and if you go, remember this place is what it is - fun, commerical, a gamblers paradise, and yes fake - fun nevertheless!

An International Flavour

Las Vegas has been influenced by the culture of so many different places.

These Las Vegas landmarks are just incredible!

This is outside the Venetian looking towards The Mirage.

Everything is larger than life!

Here's a picture of the entrance to the Luxor - it's larger than the real thing!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:So many different themes going on - something for everyone
  • Cons:Can be a bit busy for some
  • In a nutshell:Worth a week or so of anyones time - plus the Grand Canyon is in striking distance!

    Enjoyed your page. Am starting to plan another trip to LV (with my 21-year-old son) so am starting to lay plans! Loved the Paris buffet for breakfast.
