Why visit Las Vegas?

Las Vegas is nicknamed “Disneyland for adults” and for good reason.

Set within the greater Mojave Desert in Nevada, a vacation to Las Vegas makes for red-hot days, but you can be sure to experience some electric nights on the Strip and in downtown Vegas, too.

“Sin City” has long held a proud reputation as the world’s number-one gambling destination. All of the biggest gaming firms like Caesars and MGM are located here and many more have followed through the decades. Even the newest casino resorts on the Strip skyline, like Aria and The Cosmopolitan, are renowned for their jaw-dropping gaming floors and decadent casino experiences.

Vegas has always been about entertainment too, though. The Entertainment Capital of the World attracts many A-list performers throughout the year and the likes of Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, Usher, and Rod Stewart are just a few examples of those who have had residency shows in the last decade.

When it comes to booking your flights, we’ve got you covered here at eDreams. With a sophisticated AI-fueled search engine and plenty of filters, all you need to do is input a few basic details like your preferred departure airport and the dates you’re considering. We’ll do the rest.

Read on for our helpful Las Vegas hacks and get ready for the vacation of a lifetime!

What to see in a long weekend in Las Vegas

If you’re a Vegas virgin but own a TV, you’ll likely have an idea of the best places to visit in Las Vegas already. Whether you’re planning a bachelor or bachelorette party, a trip with your partner or just hanging out with friends, there’s clearly a lot to check out. It’s not a matter of what to do in Las Vegas but more a question of how. Well, don’t worry. We’ve done you a favor and mocked up a little itinerary for Vegas first-timers with tips and tricks for visiting some of the iconic landmarks during your stay, so go ahead and give this a spin:

Day 1: Stroll the Strip in Las Vegas

Our first recommendation is to take in all the glory: stroll the Strip or check out Fremont Street if you’re starting downtown. You’ll get an idea of Las Vegas' magnitude and bump into some interesting Elvis-resembling characters along the way. This is also an opportune time to take your pick of local bars and add them to a mental checklist.

The next step is to decide how you’re getting around. Uber and Lyft drivers are plentiful, but there's the budget-friendly Deuce bus service and the novelty Las Vegas Monorail which connects many of the Strip’s resorts. Another option is to go glam and hire a limo, but ultimately, the choice is yours!

If you really want to soak in the atmosphere, you’ll get the best perspective of the Vegas Strip and the Mojave Desert from the top of the Strat, which is at the north end of the Strip. Its observation deck is perfect for watching the Nevada sunset with a cold one.

While you’re there, it’d be rude not to take advantage of a finger-licking good meal at the Top of the World restaurant, which provides a stunning 360-degree view of the Vegas skyline.

Day 2: Live like royalty in Las Vegas

This is usually the point where overwhelm kicks in because there are just too many options to explore. We say start your first full day right with a meal fit for a king or queen. Hash House a Go Go is one of the most popular brunch resorts on the Strip at The LINQ, so that’s worth looking into. Fusing classic Midwest dishes with some Vegas flair, it’s little wonder why they call it “twisted farm food”.

For the evening, you ought to book some tickets for a classic Vegas show. There’s something for everyone. For example, the V Theater in Planet Hollywood plays host to a string of productions from well-known Vegas producer David Saxe including Zombie Burlesque. There are also plenty of Cirque du Soleil shows in various resorts along the Strip. Top tip: visit the kiosk booths which line the Strip as they offer plenty of cheap tickets for Vegas theaters.

Build on your post-show high by riding the Big Apple Rollercoaster at New York-New York.

Finally, go hard or go home. Experience Vegas’ intoxicating nightlife for yourselves. Get in the queue for XS Nightclub at the Wynn or The Cosmopolitan’s Marquee Club. If you can’t afford VIP entry to skip the lines, get there 30 minutes before the club opens for the best chance of general admission.

Day 3: See the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas

Best season to visit Las Vegas

It’s no secret that this corner of the Nevada desert can be a scorcher. In the height of summer between June and August, average high temperatures in Las Vegas are regularly above 100 °F. This is great news for the day clubbers and sun worshippers amongst you, but it’s not so great if you’re keen to explore Vegas on foot.

If you’re looking for a great deal, flights to Vegas and on-Strip accommodation are cheapest in August when temperatures are at their highest. It’s almost too hot to spend any time outside for some people, which is why demand wanes during this time of the year. However, if you’re just planning to hit the casinos, eat, drink, and catch some shows, August could be the best time to visit Las Vegas.

If you’d rather stroll the Strip without needing to dive into the air-conditioned floors of every casino along the way, spring, and fall are probably your optimum seasons. Even in October, you can enjoy temperatures in the low-to-mid 80s, which makes it comfortable to get around and you can still enjoy dining outside.
