Las Vegas Travel - It's Not Just About The Casinos Anymore

Aug 18, 2007
If you are planning a Las Vegas travel vacation, then you should know that there's a lot more to see than just casinos. While the gambling is certainly a big attraction in Vegas, there's also plenty of other reasons to come to Vegas including world-class shows, fine dining, shopping and a variety of other fun things to see and do.

Some of the best shows of the world are here in Las Vegas and one which you will want to miss is the highly sought-after Cirque du Soleil. While they offer three different shows in three different hotels, you still want to get your tickets well in advance as these can be sold out. Combining aging, theater, music and strange and unusual costumes and makeup these unique extravaganzas pressured to impress anyone. Choose from the three shows 'O', 'Mystere' and 'KA' or see them all!

If you're an animal lover, you can check out white tigers at the Mirage or lions at the MGM Grand. The animals are displayed in replicas of their natural habitats and they're free to see.

If you prefer fins to four, then you'll definitely want to check out the dolphin habitat located at the Mirage hotel. Here you consider it at the bar while you watch dolphins swimming nearby. The Mandalay Bay has a 1,000,000 gallon reef tank that houses dozens of species of sharks - something any shark lover won't want to miss.

Any shopping aficionado will want to include a shopping trip or two on their Las Vegas travel itinerary. Here you can check out the latest Harry Winston designs, or drape yourself in the latest fashions at Versace. At the Venetian, you can take a relaxing gondola ride and end it with some great window shopping and if that isn't enough for you, you simply must visit the trilevel forum at Caesars Palace - with over a hundred stores you should find something you simply must have.

If you want to see some great natural scenery, then take a little ride over to Red Rock Canyon where you can thrill to the 80,000 foot peak mountains and watch red tailed hawks soaring from above. If you're into hiking, bring your hiking boots because you can hike on the trails and enjoy the awesome views from the red sandstone cliffs.

In town, you'll want to take a trip to Fremont Street where you can check out the new $70 million canopy that projects a dizzying array of lights and images. Of course, while you're there you can check out one of the many casinos and have a bite to eat, though you probably won't know whether to have lunch or dinner because this area boasts more neon lights than any other place this side of Hong Kong.

These days, Las Vegas travel isn't just about gambling - there's something for the whole family. With luxurious hotels to stay in, world-class restaurants and spas and pools arrival any other vacation place there's no reason not to come to Vegas!
