Las Vegas, USA

Las Vegas, USA

Las Vegas is a fantastic place. I have been lucky enough to visit here a couple of times!
Most recently I stayed at New York New York hotel. Built like the high rises of New York with its very own Statue of Liberty it is a great hotel in an excellent location on the strip. It even has a roller coaster weaving its way around the building tops!
There is great shopping in Vegas- with outlets at the Northern and Southern ends of the strip, and designer stores in all hotels.
Be sure to see a show in Vegas! You should prebook for the more popular shows and artists, you can try for a last minute bargain ticket when you are there- but be prepared to wait in line for a while to get these. I highly recommend any Cirque de Sole show, they are spectacular.
A visit to the Grand Canyon is a must and can be done from Vegas. If time is short you can do a helicopter flight from Vegas over the Canyon and back. Alternatively you can do a bus trip or hire a car and drive along the infamous Route 66. It is a long trip so you may want to consider an overnight stay at The Grand Canyon. Driving through the National Parks and deserts in the US is a great, fun experience especially when you’re on the wrong side of the car and road!
Travelex Money Card is a great, safe way to take your travel money. Always take out travel insurance as medical costs in the USA are astronomical so you need to be covered just in case!
