Las Vegas

Enjoy a wild weekend in Sin City or a family trip to The Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas has it all!

Incredible shows, the largest casinos in the world and a city of bright lights awaits you in the desert city of Las Vegas. Visit Las Vegas as a solo city break, or combine it with the likes of Los Angeles, Hollywood, New York, Orlando or San Francisco. Enjoy a flutter in the casinos, experience the scrumptious food at one of the many great restaurants, marvel at the bright neon lights along the strip or even race a super car around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Park Las Vegas offers an outdoor dining and entertainment district on the strip and it is home to the famous 40ft Bliss Dance sculpture. The Botanical Cactus Garden is particularly special and even better when decorated with thousands of lights at Christmas. Major tourist attractions include, helicopter rides over the city, the Grand Canyon which is a short helicopter ride away, the gondola rides at the Venetian Hotel, the Eiffel Tower at the Paris Hotel, the fountain show at the Bellagio Resort, the erupting volcano and secret garden at the Mirage Hotel, the Mob Museum, the Shark Reef Aquarium and of course the Stratosphere Tower.

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,…

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…

Le Reve – The Dream

You can’t visit Las Vegas without taking in a show, and there’s a staggering choice available. We were torn between one of the Cirque de Soleil shows or Le Rêve which was voted “Best Production Show” in Las Vegas for 6 consecutive years. As we were open to what to see, we waited until the day and bought tickets through Tix4tonight, saving 22% off the standard ticket price. The 360 degree Wynn theatre is very plush and comfortable, we were…

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…

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…

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…

Wicked Spoon, Las Vegas

There’s stiff competition for the title of the Best Buffet in Las Vegas. We really found it difficult to decide between our top three shortlist including the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars, The Buffet at Wynn Las Vegas and the Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan. It was Sunday and finally we decided to go for the Weekend Brunch priced at $35 per person at the Wicked Spoon. Expecting up to a 30 minute wait, we found that there was only a…
