Las Vegas, Nevada
Famous for being “The Entertainment Capital of the World”, Las Vegas continuously pumps out entertainment, casino action, nightlife and electricity with big city bravado. Themed shopping experiences in Vegas rival any other destination in the world. You can even capture excitement by riding roller coasters high above the city. Travel to the top of the Eiffel Tower observation deck at the Paris hotel or see the famous fountain shows at the Bellagio. And don’t forget about the endless buffets, you can get your fill from dusk to dawn and dawn to dusk. Believe it or not, excitement can be found outside of Vegas’ city limits, too. Places like the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam are breathtaking wonders well worth the drive away from the glitz and glamour. Be sure to bring your clubs because picturesque rounds of desert golf are always holes in one.
Whether you choose the bright lights and fast-paced excitement of the city or the tranquil beauty of the desert, both are sure bets for a warm weather vacation away from the frozen Northeast.
