Las Vegas, Nevada is the entertainment capital of the world.
Interestingly, although Las Vegas has earned the nickname of Sin City, it has more churches per person than every other major U.S. city.
McCarran International Airport (LAS), located just eight kilometres south of Las Vegas's centre services the city and the surrounding region of Clark County. More than 44 million passengers go through McCarran's terminals each year with flights from Southwest Airlines, US Airways, and United Airlines flying the most trips.
Las Vegas is no longer simply a gambler's retreat. The city is an all-around tourist destination with world-class entertainment, gastronomy, nightlife, and conventions.
The Strip otherwise known as Las Vegas Boulevard is the location of the city's top hotels and the famous Bellagio fountains at the Bellagio Hotel which hosts a magnificent, albeit brief, water show each half hour.
Make sure to leave time to tour the many hotels located on The Strip. Each has a unique themed lobby or promenade such as The Mirage's tropical rainforest.
