    Stay at an Iconic Hotel

    Selecting a hotel probably falls high on the list of your priorities when planning a vacation, and Las Vegas has plenty to choose from. 

    If you are looking for a stay at an iconic hotel, look no further than MGM Resorts, which includes the Bellagio, MGM Grand, New York-New York, and ARIA among others.

    For the upscale guest, Bellagio Hotel & Casino offers a sophisticated playground catered to adults. Fill your days with visits to the expansive casino, the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, the spa and salon, and other must-see attractions across the hotel. Plus, don’t forget to set time aside to see what is often described as the best free attraction in Vegas, the Fountains of Bellagio, for a magnetic water show.

    If you want to bring the whole family along, you’ll find incredible entertainment and activities for all ages at New York-New York with their Big Apple Coaster, Excalibur with their medieval Tournament of Kings, and Mandalay Bay with their Shark Reef Aquarium.

    The MGM Grand also welcomes kids with their 6.5-acre pool complex, a high-tech arcade with virtual reality games, family-friendly shows, and more. Their impressive aquatic playground includes four pools, cascading waterfalls, a lazy river, and three whirlpools for guests of all ages to enjoy. 

    Book your Las Vegas vacation at any of these incredible hotels and enjoy expansive casinos, relaxing spas, impressive pool areas, luxurious shopping at top stores including Louis Vuitton, and more. Whether you’re planning an adults-only trip or a fun-filled family getaway, Las Vegas and MGM Resorts have the perfect hotel for you. 

    Explore the Famous Las Vegas Strip

    Two-and-a-half miles of glitz, glamour, and neon lights, the Las Vegas Strip is the main attraction of Sin City. Running northeast to southwest, Las Vegas Boulevard is lined with fabulous hotels, many with unique themes, and must-see attractions that will awe visitors of all ages.

    As the sun sets on the Las Vegas strip, the street becomes illuminated, and the nightlife scene begins to wake up. From the evening into the early hours of the morning, enjoy various bars, restaurants, and clubs. You can even book bottle service at a club for an unforgettable, or hardly memorable, night.

    Before packing up and heading home from your Las Vegas vacation, make a stop at the Neon Museum just off the Strip. This is where all the dazzling signs of the Strip go when they are no longer needed. Dedicated to collecting and preserving iconic Las Vegas signs since 1996, the Neon Museum’s Neon Boneyard is the final resting place for these signs.

    See Unique and Mesmerizing Shows

    Las Vegas is never lacking in unique and mind-blowing entertainment. From magic shows that will leave you stunned to amazing Cirque du Soleil acrobatic shows and remarkable musical performances, this city is bound to host an entertainment extravaganza that will have you mesmerized.

    Unlike anything you have experienced, “O” by Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio offers an enchanting show over a mystical pool of water. With participation from world-class acrobats, divers, synchronized swimmers, and other whimsical characters, get ready to experience an awe-inspiring performance.

    The MGM Grand also offers a stunning Cirque du Soleil show, KÀ, featuring acrobats, martial artists, and pyrotechnics. The tale of two twins on a journey to fulfill their destiny is portrayed through amazing storytelling and aerial skills.

    For an exhilarating magic show with a hint of danger, Criss Angel’s Mindfreak at Planet Hollywood fits the bill. With a long history and raving reviews, this show will not disappoint. Mindfreak offers top-of-the-line technology combined with visionary illusions to create never-before-seen magic.

    Not all magic has to be a production, so if more traditional magic is your thing, Penn and Teller, long-time performers at the Rio in Las Vegas, are quite the tricksters.

    Want a show for the whole family? Look no further than The Blue Man Group. Found at the Luxor, a group of bald, mute, blue men explore the world together through music, theatrics, laughter, and curiosity. While many people find this show hard to describe, one thing they agree on is that they know they love it.

    Looking for some free entertainment? Discover other mesmerizing shows like Lake of Dreams which can be seen from Wynn Las Vegas and nearby restaurants, the Fall of Atlantis at Caesars Forum Shops, and the previously mentioned Fountains of the Bellagio to name a few.

    Discover Sin City & Beyond With a Guided Tour

    All the fun isn’t only found in Las Vegas; sometimes that is just where it starts. Tours of various types use Las Vegas as a starting point for guests. These itineraries include tours of the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, the Hoover Dam, and more. Tours can range from single-day trips to several days of exploration depending on your preference.

    Some of the most popular tours out of Las Vegas are to the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. These tours offer pick up and drop off at select hotels for single-day itineraries lasting 6-10 hours. If an aerial view sounds more exciting than traveling by bus, you can also see these sights from up above on a helicopter tour. For the more adventurous types, Las Vegas also offers ATV and RZR tours in the Mojave Desert and Hidden Valley. These tours allow you to drive through the rugged terrain of the desert with a guide for 4-5 hours.

    For extended touring, escorted tours starting in Las Vegas can lead to many other exciting destinations. Whether you want more time to explore the Grand Canyon or discover other national parks, Las Vegas is a great starting point (or a fun stop along the way) for your adventure. Take advantage of tours lasting several days for exhilarating and efficient exploring with an expert guide.
