Las Vegas

Introducing Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas! In the middle of the desert, Las Vegas is like a mirage, like a fata morgana. The colors of the casinos and their neon lights, contrast sharply with the dry and barren land around.

What brings you to Vegas is clear: Las Vegas activities are all about having fun, more precisely having fun and gambling. Or, more truthfully, having fun, sipping on sinful cocktails at a Las Vegas hotel, gambling until dawn, dining at a five star Las Vegas restaurant, strip club hopping, and wondering “Hey, how long’s the sun been up?” as they toss you to the curb because you ran out of gambling money.

And that is precisely what Las Vegas offers and what any Las Vegas travel guide will tell you: mind-boggling, out-of-this-world, oversized casinos in every size, shape and theme. Eiffel towers, Roman palaces, Egyptian Pyramids, even Mardi Gras & the Brooklyn Bridge! The sights of Europe, Africa, and the United States come to you – in one destination.

If you aren’t into the Las Vegas activities such as gambling or legalized prostitution (actually, while prostitution is legal in Nevada, it’s not in Las Vegas or the surrounding county), close by in Boulder City, roughly 30 minutes away, is the Hoover Dam with plenty of sights to see and tours to take. North about 80 miles is a State park called The Valley of Fire that has beautiful rock formations and petroglyphs. To the West straight down Charleston Blvd there is Red Rock Canyon for wonderful hiking and rock climbing. In the Red Rock Canyon one can see the largest Eolian sandstone cross-bedding in Nevada (see the photos in the album section).
