Partying, gambling, drinking, gambling, eating, shows, gambling, canyons, gambling - there are even slot machines in which to feed a few dollars at Las Vegas airport - yes, Las Vegas is a playground of pleasure for adults and hundreds of thousands of Brits become intoxicated by this city of glitz, glamour, neon flashing lights, and a little bit of sin.
Flights to Las Vegas arrive at McCarran International Airport Las Vegas (LAS). The proximity of the airport to the Strip - the famous four-mile main road running through Vegas - means access to the fun is fairly quick and cheap. Many hotels offer shuttle services and various other operators will take you straight to your hotel of choice. Buses are available, though a little bit of a pain as you must change buses to reach Strip hotels. If travelling in a group, taking a taxi could be more economical. If you plan on seeing more than the inside of a casino during your Las Vegas holiday, or if the city is the starting point of a road trip, car hire will be useful.
Popular day trips from Las Vegas include Red Rock Canyon (30 minutes), the Hoover Dam (one hour), and the Grand Canyon (four hours).
In Las Vegas, nestled in the middle of the Nevada desert, the places to see are the casinos within the huge hotels, the poolside party scenes, and legendary Las Vegas shows, both old-style Vegas and more modern variations, courtesy of companies such as Cirque du Soleil.
Las Vegas is an entertainment centre, 24 hours of the day, seven days a week.
Tour the world, and a variety of ancient civilisations, by exploring the hotels on the Strip. It's free to enter - simply stroll around and gawp.

Drink in the dancing fountains of the Bellagio and imagine you're in George Clooney's 'Ocean's Eleven' gang.
