Destination guide

What happens in Vegas gets bragged about back home

Rising from Nevada's Mojave Desert, Las Vegas is a unique resort destination, known for its non-stop nightlife, 24-hour casinos, topnotch culinary scene and luxury shops. It's so much more than just bachelor parties, gambling and elopements, and whether you book a night at a themed resort or nab tickets for a live show or concert, you'll find yourself wanting to return before your trip has even started. The Strip is surprisingly family friendly, with plenty of Las Vegas vacation rentals within walking distance of all the major highlights, as well as farther out into the desert and surrounding area.

Things to do

From kid-friendly fun to adults-only excursions

Whether you book a family-friendly vacation, an adults-only retreat or a luxury experience for your besties, Vegas won't disappoint. The kids will love the Discovery Children's Museum, the SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium and the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay, or you can visit any 1 of the city's museums, from the Las Vegas Art Museum to the Las Vegas Natural History Museum. The Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens are worth a visit, too, as are the indoor gondolas at The Venetian and the luxury shops at Caesar's Palace.


Welcome to Sin City... or not, the choice is yours

Gambling in some of the world's best casinos is Vegas's main draw, but outdoor enthusiasts will be happily occupied, too. Tour the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon by helicopter, walk down The Strip, stopping to see the Bellagio fountains dance, kiss under The Eiffel Tower or marvel at The Luxor's elusive Sphinx. If you're planning to stay in 1 of the kid-friendly Las Vegas vacation rentals, treat the little ones to the show at Circus Circus or book a family-friendly theatre performance. For adults-only fun, plan a spa day or make a reservation at any of the gourmet restaurants.


Hard to know if the weather or the nightlife is hotter

Vegas is perfect in spring and fall, thanks to moderate temperatures and manageable prices. December experiences a burst of visitors eager to ring in the New Year at one of the famous parties along The Strip, despite chilly temperatures and high prices, so plan well in advance if you have dreams of counting down to midnight while overlooking the glittering Sin City. Summers in this desert city are sweltering, with temperatures soaring well above 38 degrees. The locals proudly call it a dry heat, but you'll still want to consider Las Vegas vacation rentals with air-conditioning.

Natural highlights

Where the locals are just as wild as the visitors

Las Vegas's location in a basin within Nevada's Mojave Desert makes for a dry, hot and arid climate, at least outside of the winter months. You'll see mountains on all sides, with plenty of wildlife living among the desert vegetation. Expect to come across coyotes and rattlesnakes if you venture outside of the city, so take heed on any hikes. Be sure to also make plans to find a lookout point, either from a high-rise or a mountain path, and spend at least 1 evening watching the sunset over the city.
