Las Vegas is a city both infamous for its gambling and indulgence and cherished for its glamorous unforgettable nightlife. In the midst of all the hubbub and glitz, it’s easy to get lost and think, “Where in the world do I begin?” We’ve had our fair share of experiencing Las Vegas, so here are four of our favorite reasons to visit Vegas. It will get you well on your way to experiencing the best this world-renown city has to offer!

Bellagio Las Vegas

1. The Entertainment

Las Vegas is coined the ‘entertainment capital of the world,’ and with good reason. We were in Las Vegas as part of our honeymoon, and one of the highlights was, hands down, seeing Cirque du Soleil’s ‘Mystere’. We have always been fans since Casey’s first encounter in Spain. The acrobatics, humor, live music, and audience involvement will surely make for an unforgettable night. But Cirque du Soleil is just one of the many shows featured in town. Check out Jersey Boys, Rock of Ages, and Absinthe, which are all featured in different venues around the city. While you’re waiting for the latest entertainment, you can catch up on the news.

2. The Food

Las Vegas has emerged as one of the very best places in the U.S. —if not the world—to enjoy fine dining. There’s a variety of food that’s sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. Try Peruvian-Japanese fusion at the largest Nobu in the world. Or maybe Joel Robuchon’s iconic fine dining establishment in MGM Grand is more your taste. You can even take a night in France and dine in the ‘Eiffel Tower.’ There is certainly a restaurant to match your unique taste, style, and budget.

3. The Hotels

From top-of-the-notch luxury hotels to intimate boutique designs, there’s a variety of scrumptious hotels to meet every taste. There’s no way you can go wrong with the class and excellence of service at the iconic Four Seasons Hotel. However, the Bellagio is just unbeatable when it comes to location. Want to be whisked away to Italy? The Venetian will have you feeling like you’re walking the streets of the floating city in no time. Finally, if you’re in a tropical mood, The Mirage, and Tropicana will provide you with a Carribean Oasis so divine you’ll forget you’re in the middle of the Nevada deserts. With the variety of themes and styles, why not visit a variety of hotels and make off you’re on a trip around the world!

4. The Casinos

When you visit Las Vegas, everyone knows you have to take a visit to a casino. Even if you don’t like the idea of gambling, the spectacles of the themed hotels are worth the visit and subsequent photo shots alone. Just to get an idea, the Paris boasts the Eiffel Tower, the MGM Grand has lions, the Bellagio has the famed water show, and—our personal favorite—The Venetian will transport you to the canals and waterways of Venice, Italy. Not to mention, you’ll certainly find a great mix of shopping and art exhibits inside, as well. If you are a gambler, then you’ll have no problem passing the evening. If you can’t make it to Las Vegas yourself, then these best bingo sites are sure to entertain. We prefer the Las Vegas casinos to those in Macau, mostly due to the fact that participants in the casinos get free drinks and alcohol. Make sure you gamble responsibly, and you might be surprised at how you can get away quite affordably with an unforgettable evening in the Casinos.

One thing is for sure: it’s hard to walk away from Las Vegas disappointed. However you choose to enjoy your trip to Las Vegas, it will certainly be memorable.
