Bright Light City Gonna Set My Soul...........

Driving into Las Vegas with Elvis's 'Viva Las Vegas' blasting from the stereo, the desert plains open up to a strip filled with a million neon lights. Big name casino's dot the landscape, Paris' Eiffel Tower glistens against the darkened sky and screams echo into the night of the thrill seekers brave enough to tackle New York New York's famous rollercoaster!

Las Vegas is the most populated city in the state of Nevada and is billed as 'The Entertainment Capital of the World.' I certainly can't argue with that! South Las Vegas Boulevard which is known as the 'Strip' is home to every kind of entertainment you can imagine from musicals, gambling, partying and even lions!

The Strip is around 4.2 miles long and casino's and hotels situated here include the Italian themed Venetian, The Mirage and Excalibur. The shopping is incredible and include the Miracle Mile shops inside Planet Hollywood and The Forum Shops at Caesar's. You can even find your very own MnM man at the MnM's store as well as take a seat on the lap of the Coca Cola bear!

One of the major attractions on the Strip is the Bellagio Hotel and Casino's fountain show. Inspired by the Italian town of Bellagio on Lake Como, the 8 acre lake between the Strip and the hotel building, is home to a large dancing water fountain which dances in synchronisation with different music. It is mesmerising to watch and I would advise staying for 2 or 3 songs just to see the diversity of the fountains. Be sure to watch after dark too as they are much more magical against a backdrop of a black star studded sky.

Las Vegas really is for everyone. Don't feel that you cannot come here because you are not a hardened gambler. You really do need not gamble at all and you will still have a fabulous time. There is so much to do from the world class shopping, the shows to the spa if you would realy like to relax, I defy anyone to not find something to do in Vegas!
