This good-time city in the desert will seduce and tempt you. Go on... give in to her and book Las Vegas city breaks.
She might be a brassy sort, who will take your money as fast as she'll ask your name, but there's no point arguing: Las Vegas is a fantastically fun and outrageously ostentatious destination - a playground for adults in the Nevada desert and totally comfortable with its maxim, “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”.
Don't get the wrong idea about the city, though. For all its rough edges, some of the hotels here are in another league when it comes to luxury - and who can claim a champagne brunch is anything but fabulous? There are world-class shows to see, major names belting out tunes, top comedy acts, amazing magic and, of course, gambling opportunities galore.
The shimmering four-mile stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard South, known as the Strip, is the heart of the city. Hotel resorts scream for attention with huge electric signs, flashy decor and eye-catching attractions. The 350m Stratosphere tower soars over them all. New York New York crams all the iconic buildings of the Big Apple's skyline into its own exterior and the black, glass pyramid of Luxor, complete with replica Sphinx, sends a super-powerful light beam from its tip up into the Vegas night.
When you book short breaks to Las Vegas you can opt to stay in one of these iconic hotel casinos, with the likes of Bellagio, Venetian, MGM Grand, Mirage and Wynn attempting to capture your eye. Staying on the Strip offers easy access to everything that Vegas has to offer, though there are plenty of off-Strip hotels and resorts that also offer great value for money.
Flights to Las Vegas land at McCarran International Airport (LAS), which is just a few minutes from the southern end of the Strip. Bell Trans Airport Shuttles, available from the Bell Booth, are the cheapest way to get to all major Las Vegas hotels.
Getting around on weekend breaks to Las Vegas is simple. The Deuce 24-hour double-decker bus fleet runs the length of the Strip. Buy an all-day pass and hop on and off to your heart's content. Alternatively, the Las Vegas Monorail runs from one end of the Strip to the other, stopping at selected major hotels along the way.
