Las Vegas is home to practically to all the world’s largest hotels. The city prides itself on its fine dining, shopping, sightseeing, dazzling nightclubs, entertainment, attractions... and, of course, gambling. It can be quite overwhelming for the first-time visitor.
One of the things you need to do is people watching. And with the cross-section of visitors and celebrities who go to Las Vegas, it's usually primetime entertainment.
Cruising the Strip is required for any first-timer, by car or by foot be sure to get out and have a little fun exploring, too. Stroll through the open-air street party that is Carnaval Court at Harrah’s, or let out a few screams riding the roller coaster at New York-New York. With new restaurants, shops, and performance venues, this family-friendly destination will soon be home to the High-Roller Observation Wheel.
When you set out to take a walk, wear comfy shoes. Even if you think you are a walker, and you love to walk, you will walk further in Las Vegas than anywhere else you have walked before. Some casinos span many city blocks themselves, so when you look at a map and see that a casino/hotel you want to visit is three casinos down the street, it will probably take you 1/2 hour to get there. As an example, MGM Grand to Ballys is a one mile walk. Plus, there are lots of other walkers and you need to navigate around them and navigate away from all the people trying to hand you flyers. Just be sure to allow plenty of time to get from point A to point B.
There is so much to do in Las Vegas besides gaming, but if this is your first time in town, you almost have to play a little. Many hotels offer free lessons for novices.
Las Vegas is the birthplace of many legendary cinematic excursions — from Swingers to The Hangover. Who knows? You could be the next to leave your mark on Las Vegas.
