Las Vegas

Las Vegas — When the glittering lights of Las Vegas come into view, whether you approach by plane or by car, it’s hard not to feel your pulse quicken. In little more than 100 years, Vegas transformed from a dusty desert railroad depot into one of the world’s most celebrated vacation and convention destinations. Call it Sin City, the City of Lost Wages, or the Neon Jungle, but don’t ever, ever call it dull. These days, it’s even difficult to call it tacky, with some of the city’s mega-resorts offering the finest of everything people flock to New York and Paris for – often for a bit less than what you’d pay in those storied cities.

Why Go

For top chefs, posh suites, and entertainment from Cirque du Soleil and exclusive headliners. Oh, and the gambling!

“Avoid refueling your rental car at gas stations too close the airport. You'll find better gas prices a few exits away and still be able to return the car with a full tank.”
