There are many reasons why visitors come to Las Vegas but what keeps them coming back may surprise you. Recently ranked #4 on Trip Advisor’s 2017 Travelers’ Choice Awards, Las Vegas offers so much more than showgirls and slot machines. The location remains at the top of travelers' lists for many reasons, here’s our top picks of why Las Vegas is the most unique and diverse destinations in the US:
1. Visit Egypt, Rome and a Castle in a day
Las Vegas is home to more than 10 themed hotels & Casinos.
2. Indulge in a $750 Cupcake or a $5,000 Burger
The $750 Decadence D'Or cupcake at Sweet Surrender inside the Palazzo is encased in a hand-blown sugar fleur-de-lis and hand-crafted chocolates. The FleurBurger 5000 (pictured below) is the concept of Chef Hubert Keller and only found at Fleur, his restaurant at Mandalay Bay.
3. Sharks, dolphins and flamingo’s, oh my!
Yes, Vegas is home to many animal habits that are a diverse collection of mammals, reptiles and birds.
To experience decadent French cuisine from world-renowned chefs, just visit Las Vegas. Guy Savoy’s at Caesars Palace, Pierre Gagnaire’s Twist at Mandarin Oriental and Joël Robuchon at the MGM Grand are located within a few miles on the famous Las Vegas Strip.
5. Look out! It’s Slotzilla!
Only in Vegas, Slotzilla is a 12-story high slot machine strapped with 850 feet of zip wire. The brave (and a little crazy) participants perch 77 feet in the air until they are sent off at a daring rate of 35 miles an hour.
