Las Vegas and surrounding area

Las Vegas, in Nevada’s Mojave Desert, is a resort city famed for its vibrant nightlife, centered around 24-hour casinos and other entertainment options. Its main street and focal point is the Strip, just over 4 miles long. There's a reason people say, "Only in Vegas." That's because when you're there, you'll find so many things that surprise you. And even more things you can't find back home, no matter where home may be.

This boulevard is home to themed hotels with elaborate displays such as fountains synchronized to music as well as replicas of an Egyptian pyramid, the Venetian Grand Canal, and the Eiffel Tower. Twenty-four hours in a day hardly seems like enough. Wall-to-wall Las Vegas activities mean you get more in your getaway - whether that's a massage from Octavio, an outfit from Catherine Malandrino, seeing the sights or all the above.

Take advantage of the great local attractions like the Grand Canyon or nearby Hoover Dam. You won't find more things to do than in Las Vegas. This is your official Las Vegas activities guide (, complete with the most adventure, the most attractions and the most exciting experiences.
