Las Vegas isn’t all about the gambling

Many years ago one would have been excused for assuming that everyone who flooded to ‘Sin City’ was rushing there for a feel of the world famous casinos. However with over 40million visitors a year, traveling from far and wide to experience the buzz, it is no wonder the ‘Capital of Second Chances’ has become known for more that just it’s gambling and casinos. With some of the biggest names in showbiz and sport performing on regular basis, it is understandable why ‘Vegas’ has become known as one of the entertainment capitals of the world.

Live Entertainment – With many resorts boasting their own preforming arenas and other outdoor venues around the city, there are more than enough live performances to cater to everyone’s taste.

Home to the UFC, the Vegas Golden Knights National Hockey League team and soon (2020) the Oakland Raiders National Football League team, visitors have plenty of choice when it comes to watching live sport.

The Grand Canyon – A 5hour trip each way by car, it is more than worth the journey. With the canyon stretching for almost 300miles, up to 18 miles wide and over a mile deep, it is a site to behold. However, if some prefer a different experience, there is the choice of getting a helicopter to show you this magnificent wonder from the sky.
