Hard Rock Hotel, Las Vegas

We booked into the Hard Rock Hotel because it seemed to offer the best value for a 4 star hotel and casino for our trip to Las Vegas. It turned out to be a cracking decision. The hotel is situated a little way off The Strip, but an easy 10 minute walk takes you to one end of it, and you can access the monorail from there. The hotel also offers an hourly courtesy bus service, which drops you right…

Free Things To Do In Las Vegas

It’s very easy to splash out and enjoy all the attractions that Las Vegas has to offer. Here’s our suggestions if you’re looking for something different to do that won’t cost a dime. Visit the iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada” sign. The sign is on the South end of Las Vegas Boulevard by the Bali Hai Golf Club, which is a couple of blocks walk from the Mandalay Bay. The sign was created by Betty Willis and installed…

1 Night In Los Angeles

We decided to hire a Mustang and drive to Los Angeles during our week in Las Vegas. It’s about 4.5 hours if you stick to the speed limit on the California Interstate 15. To be honest it’s quite a long boring road, albeit with some stunning scenery along the way. We stopped at Peggy Sue’s 50’s Diner for lunch, which is a traditional American diner situated in Yermo which was a perfect way to break the journey up. I adored…

The Hoover Dam

We visited The Hoover Dam as part of our trip to Las Vegas. We hired a car and drove to the dam, which is about a 40 minute drive. The dam spans the states of Nevada and Arizona, and crosses two time zones, which confused us as we headed afterwards into Arizona! It was built in the 1930’s during the great depression and had three key objectives: 1/ To provide water for irrigation to the states down river. 2/ To…

Helicopter Tour Las Vegas Strip

It might only be a 12-15 minute flight experience, but the helicopter tour of the Las Vegas strip by night was fabulous. We booked it on personal recommendations from friends and agents who mentioned it was the highlight of their holiday. There are a few companies offering this excursion including Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters, Maverick Helicopters and Sundance Helicopters. We booked the excursion without limousine transfers, however every taxi ride we took to various points in Vegas during our stay…

Grand Canyon West Skywalk

We combined a visit to the Hoover Dam with the Skywalk on the West rim of the Grand Canyon for a self drive day out from Las Vegas. Hoover Dam is 32 miles from Las Vegas, which is around 45 minutes drive. The distance to continue on to the Skywalk was a further 96 miles, just under 2 hours. It’s important to note that during the winter months, the state of Arizona is an hour different to Nevada and the…

Countdown to Las Vegas

I can’t believe that it’s over 15 years since we’ve visited the States, we had an amazing family holiday there when the kids were little. We started in Orlando visiting the theme parks, before taking off on a tour of Florida, staying in Miami, Key West and St Pete’s along the way. When an amazing offer came out from Funway for a 7 night package to stay in Las Vegas was released in July, we shared it with our clients,…
