Mention Las Vegas and you can almost feel the excitement of the Strip, see the showgirls and hear the ka-ching of the slots. Its world-class resorts, bustling casinos and spectacular shows are legendary. But listen, do you want to know a secret? Its natural beauty is astounding. Ruby red cliffs, rolling greens and tranquil lakes hug the city and invite hiking, boating, fishing and golf. From the mountainside to the water’s edge – to center stage – Vegas is a show-stopper indoors and out. There's always something to see in Vegas: music concerts, variety shows, plays, musicals and more. From the magic of David Copperfield and the comedy of Whoopi Goldberg to Celine Dion’s lilting tunes, you’ll find your favorite entertainers headlining here. After the show, sample a little gaming. Even if gambling is not normally in the cards for you, if this is your first time in town, you almost have to give it a whirl. Las Vegas is home to some of the world’s most notable sporting events, from championship fights to celebrity golf. Dining here is also an event, with celebrity chef restaurants at every turn. The Buffet at the Bellagio will please your palate with international selections, while Cravings Buffet at The Mirage offers 11 live cooking stations. Work off those calories in the great outdoors. You’ll discover few places as untouched as some of the canyons, deserts and mountains that surround the city. There’s nothing quite like gliding over the Grand Canyon in a helicopter and touching down to witness Havasu Falls. From seeing the marvel that is Hoover Dam to hiking Red Rock Canyon to swimming and boating in Lake Mead, the area is a naturalist’s wonderland and a breath of fresh air.
