Las Vegas City Guide
Las Vegas ("The Meadows") is the most populous city in the state of Nevada, the seat of Clark County, and an internationally renowned major resort city for the gaming industry, shopping, and entertainment. Las Vegas, billed as The Entertainment Capital of the World, is famous for the number of large casino resorts and their associated entertainment.
Las Vegas provides for a variety of high-class hotels to accommodate its numerous guests.
While staying at a hotel in Las Vegas, you may visit the Madame Tussauds wax museum and have a close-up look at the rich and famous. You should follow the traces of The King of Rock 'n' Roll and see the Elvis-A-Rama Museum with the world’s largest private collection of his clothes, letters and luxury cars.
On the „Strip“, a magnificent boulevard of 7 km/4.35 miles in length, you will find the hotels of Las Vegas, some of them ranging as the largest in the world. They can be named as the city’s sights, e.g. the “Circus-Circus Hotel“ with an adjacent amusement park, the pyramid-shaped “Luxor-Hotel” or the “ Hotel Bellagio” with its spectacular water show. Las Vegas’ “Hotel Wynn“ offers a total of 7,000 rooms and ranks as the largest in the world.
If you are looking for an athletic challenge in Las Vegas, we recommend you to do Flyaway Indoor Skydiving, which is a new variety of a skydiving simulation that will fascinate you during your stay in a Las Vegas hotel.
The most important economic factor in Las Vegas is tourism. 150,000 people can be accommodated in Las Vegas’ hotels. The city with its 38 lines of CAT busses cannot assure comprehensive transportation facilities at any time. Alternatively we recommend you to take the Las Vegas Monorail, which will stop near your hotel every 15 minutes.
