5 Reasons Why Vegas is the Ultimate Weekend Getaway

Written by on in Travel, World with 0 Comments

Choosing the perfect destination for a weekend break is never easy. Thankfully, Vegas, with its hypnotic nightlife, year-round good weather, and stunning surroundings, is a place that ticks all the boxes. We’ve rounded up a list of five reasons why you should make a visit to Sin City below.

1) The Food

From fine dining to fast-food takeout, Vegas’ wide variety of culinary experiences is almost impossible to put into words. The cultural diversity of the city manifests itself in the food it offers both residents and visitors. Here, Sushi shops lie adjacent to steakhouses. Italian restaurants are next door to ice cream parlors. Everything and everything is on offer, and because of the city’s 24-hour lifecycle, you can find something to satisfy your taste buds at any time of day. And the portions, well, they’re BIG.

Celebrity chefs have also long called the desert city home and have helped turn the world-famous Strip into a place where Michelin-starred restaurants are the norm. While a visit to one of these restaurants will put a large dent in your bank account, they’re the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion with friends or family.

2) The Gambling

Las Vegas is synonymous with gambling, and the city’s casinos are some of the largest and most glamorous in the world. Slot machines are where amateurs often feel most comfortable, but if you really want to sample the buzz of gambling, a small-stakes blackjack or poker table is the place to go. If you love playing on an online casino, you’ll love the real thing.

3) The Entertainment

Much like its food, Vegas offers something for all age ranges and tastes. While gambling is atop of most visitors’ to-do lists, the city’s world-class water parks, aquariums, stage shows, and nightlife can provide just as much of an adrenaline rush.

4) The Scenery

Vegas is undoubtedly a city where it’s easy to spend your time indoors. If you do manage to pull yourself away from the casino floor or hotel bar, however, there’s spectacular natural beauty right on the city’s doorstep.

Much of Nevada’s desert landscape is made up of spectacular canyons that have been carved by the wind over millions of years. There are also towering mountain landscapes filled with alpine forests that are perfect for biking and hiking.

Many visitors to the area also take the time to visit one of the world’s most famous natural sites: The Grand Canyon. There are coach day trips that leave from the city on a daily basis, or, if money is no object, you can take a helicopter tour instead.

5) The Sightseeing

Where else in the world can you visit the Eiffel Tower, Lake Como, and the Statue of Liberty all in one day? Sure, they’re not the real thing, and they may well be a little tacky to some, but that’s what Vegas is all about. It’s wacky and over the top; a place where you can see and do anything. Besides, who doesn’t want to take a romantic gondola ride while they’re on vacation?
