Even if the Las Vegas's famous strip isn't your cup of tea then there are lots of attractions other than gambling and getting married - there is an abundance of shows and events including Elvis tributes, comedy shows, art exhibitions and activities and day trips to places of interest nearby such as a visit to the Grand Canyon, a Hot-Air Balloon ride and plenty of shopping malls to indulge in some retail therapy.

Each large elaborate hotel complex along the strip has their own casino rooms as well as a variety of restaurants and bars and some even have their own wedding chapels and services, another Las Vegas tradition. The locals are charming and welcoming and everyone including hotel staff, waiters and entertainers will do everything to ensure you have an amazing stay.

The luxurious hotels are good value for money and offer some of the best facilities in the world. The Luxor for example has inclinator lifts and a beam from the top that is one of only three things visible from the moon, and others have spectacles of their own such as Mandalay Bay with a beach and waves in the hotel grounds and the biggest aquarium on the planet, The MGM Grand has a zoo with lions wondering around between slot machines and roulette tables and then there is the Treasure Island Hotel, which has fully built pirate ships complete with actors providing free entertainment for visitors.

If all of the hustle in the street gets too much, you can guarantee that when it comes to eating, your needs will be catered for. Fresh meat and fish dishes are aplenty, along with vegetarian and vegan food and of course traditional American dishes.
