Las Vegas is a destination that doesn’t do anything halfway, from big-name stars gracing the theaters to giant resorts bordering The Strip to casinos that are so large you could easily get lost in them. With approximately 40 million yearly visitors (pre-pandemic, with the number drastically climbing afterwards), the Nevada-based city is well renowned for its party atmosphere and is sometimes referred to as the entertainment center of the United States. It has undoubtedly earned this distinction.
There is a lot more to enjoy besides Texas Hold’em and the slots, though many visitors go there to do so. There are also several pool parties, live music events, DJs, and some of the best hotel suites in the nation. There are plenty of activities to enjoy day or night, indoors or outdoors, whether you’re traveling with family, friends, a significant other, or just yourself. These activities range from thrilling attractions to days spent discovering the region’s top attractions to relaxing time well spent in some of the city’s opulent spas and restaurants.
