Las Vegas is the gaming hot spot of the U.S with the glitz, glamour and gregarious nature of the Nevada city impressing visitors for decades. The ever-changing landscape, the feeling of fun and frivolity of being transported across the world with all of the themed hotels and the escape that a visit here offers is what attracts so many.
Where else in the world can you stay in Ancient Egypt, walk a street in Paris and ride a gondola all within the same few square miles of each other? And though the main draw for many may be the casino offerings, there is so much more that Sin City has to offer, from the party scene to the fine dining offerings to the boutique stores that await. We take a look at five ways your time is best spent in the city of Las Vegas.

Relax in the spa
When all the excitement of the casino has you wound up, you will need to find a place to wind down, and luckily the spa experiences you can find among the many glamorous five-star resorts are up there with the best.
