Why People Love To Come And Return To Las Vegas

Aug 17, 2007
When you come to Las Vegas, you get shocked by the city's glamour, beauty and enormous opportunities to have fun and just enjoy yourself. Lavish casinos and hotels offer every imaginable style of accommodation and entertainment.

Gambling is Las Vegas #1 activity because it is so readily available (you'll see the first slot machines while boarding off the plane), but it truly offers some of the best shows in the country, including such sell-outs as concerts by Celine Dion and Elton John at Caesars, Cirque Du Soleil shows at a number of venues, Lance Burton at Monte Carlo Hotel or Barry Manilow at Las Vegas Hilton. The best rock and pop stars just love to have tour stops in Las Vegas.

Magic shows are also extremely popular and -- obviously -- the nightclubs that provide excitement and opportunity to have hot and wild bachelor and bachelorette parties all thru the night.

The second most popular activity in Las Vegas is getting married! Yes, Las Vegas practically has no competition when it comes to destination weddings. Well over 120 thousand couples marry there every year and many of them come back years later to renew their wedding vows. There are many reasons why people love to come to Vegas to exchange their vows -- it's so stunningly beautiful there, the ceremony is quick and relatively inexpensive, getting the marriage license is very quick and straightforward and you can have your wedding prepared by the best professionals in the world.

As for your ceremony and reception, you can have not only a traditional wedding at one of over 50 chapels, but also one of those themed weddings that are getting extremely popular recently. It's no longer only a choice between an Elvis wedding and a quickie drive thru wedding. There are many romantic weddings taking place in Las Vegas each day. Among them those at The Paris Hotel -- on the top of Eiffel Tower (especially the twilight option!), gondola weddings at the channels of The Venetian Hotel or on Lake Las Vegas. For crazier wedding you can choose saying "I do!" on a pirate ship (at the Treasure Island Hotel) or on the deck of the Star Trek's USS Enterprise (Las Vegas Hilton).

Very popular are intimate weddings aboard the helicopter taking the couples to such scenic places like Grand Canyon or in a limo cruising around the Strip or going as far as to the Valley of Fire. By the way, Stretched Hummer and Lincoln Navigator are recently the most popular limousines.

And finally, Las Vegas is also a great place for shopping and dining out. Las Vegas has a lot of most elegant specialty boutiques, magnificent malls, attractive outlet bargains and chic shops inside the hotels and casinos. Among the most popular are: The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian -- with cobblestone walkways, arched bridges and winding canals; Desert Passage at Aladdin -- with indoor rainstorm, customized pedicab tours and specialty entertainment troupes performing throughout the shops and The Wynn Esplanade at Wynn Las Vegas that features an incredible array of international, exclusive and unique shopping boutiques, including Manolo Blahnik, Brioni, Oscar de la Renta, Graff and The Pro Shop.

World-famous Fashion Show Mall, featuring live runway shows, has 250 shops, restaurants and seven department stores, including Macy's, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Dillard's, Robinsons-May, Bloomingdale's Home and Nordstrom.

The best chefs have their restaurants in Las Vegas, including a number of them by Wolfgang Puck -- the Celebrity Chef who was even inducted into the Gaming Hall of Fame. His Spago, Chinois, Postrio, Trattoria del Lupo and the Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill are among the most popular dining spots in town.

Getting around Las Vegas is very easy -- especially within its most popular district -- the famous Strip. Using a limo is very popular -- not only among the celebrities, but also for bachelor and bachelorette parties. If you can't afford that, you can always use a taxi, but there are also other options -- very convenient and relatively inexpensive: the Las Vegas Monorail, the Las Vegas Strip Trolley and the Las Vegas' public transportation system buses (CAT -- Citizen Area Transit).

So that's why all that makes Las Vegas such desirable place to have good time every day of the year, practically 24/7! As soon as you get aboard your return plane, you are already thinking about coming back. Such is the charm of fabulous Las Vegas. . .
