Las Vegas, NV

There’s nothing quite like Las Vegas. First timers can divide their time between the newer, mega-resorts on the strip, and the old-fashioned downtown area, each with their own personality, restaurants and performers. Catch a show or see the new High Roller observation wheel. Excursions to Hoover Dam and desert tours are also a great way to catch a break from the intensity of the strip.
