Nicknamed the "Entertainment Capital of the World," Las Vegas sits in the middle of a desert in the southern section of Nevada.
Get outdoors at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and Mandalay Bay Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The Strip and Pinball Hall of Fame. Venture out of the city with trips to Spring Mountains Visitor Center (in Mount Charleston) and Boulder City (Bootleg Canyon Mountain Bike Trail & Veteran's Memorial Park). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at The Mob Museum, try your luck at Bellagio Hotel and Casino, look for all kinds of wild species at Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and don't miss a visit to Paris Las Vegas.
