Gamble on celebrating your love in Sin City

I am getting married this year and we are planning our honeymoon at the moment. We are hoping to take in some of the USA and, in particular, we would love to see Vegas. Neither of us have ever been so would love to get some recommendations.

I am getting married this year and we are planning our honeymoon at the moment. We are hoping to take in some of the USA and, in particular, we would love to see Vegas. Neither of us have ever been so would love to get some recommendations.

Las Vegas is undoubtedly the entertainment capital of the world and a great place to see and be seen on your honeymoon. With some of the largest hotels, resorts and casinos, it’s easy to see why Vegas is also known as Sin City. Fifteen of the world’s 25 largest hotels by room count are on Las Vegas Boulevard, or the Strip as it’s more commonly known, with a total of over 62,000 rooms!

Vegas can be an overwhelming place and you could spend hours taking in all the weird and wonderful sights of the neon-lit strip. Gambling and casinos are probably what we associate with Vegas most and are well worth exploring. Only in Vegas can you experience multiple cities at once whether it’s a trip to the Eiffel Tower in Paris Las Vegas, a ride in a gondola in the Venetian or see the Statue of Liberty in New York New York.

If you are a thrill-seeking kind of couple, then the tallest building in Nevada, Stratosphere, has a trio of white-knuckle rides to keep you satisfied. For a more relaxing experience, dine in the Top of the World rotating restaurant where spectacular views and American-French influenced dishes will make for a memorable evening. The restaurant is pricey, so if dinner is out of the question, stop by for drink instead. There are lots of choices for eating out in Vegas. Hotels and casinos have wide options to suit every taste. The Cheesecake Factory in Caesar’s Palace is world-renowned, as is the Rainforest Café in the MGM Grand.

Vegas is famous for its elaborate productions so a show should definitely be part of your itinerary. Ticket booths scattered across the strip offer discounted tickets if you buy on the day of the show, so last-minute booking is recommended. The choices are endless with everything from Cirque du Soleil to Celine Dion and The Lion King, so make sure to capture the true essence of Vegas by attending at least one

Finally, if you have cash to spare, I would recommend that you visit the iconic Grand Canyon. Located 300 miles south east of Vegas, several tour operators scattered across the strip do fantastic packages, including helicopter rides with lunch included. Shop around to get the best deal. The view by helicopter is both breathtaking and memorable.
