Las Vegas

Nicknamed the "Entertainment Capital of the World," Las Vegas sits in the middle of a desert in the southern section of Nevada.
The Strip and Counts Kustoms are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Shelby American Inc and Willow Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge (in Alamo), Don Laughlin's Classic Car Collection (in Laughlin) and Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge (in Amargosa Valley). There's much more to do: explore the stunning scenery at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, wander the streets of The LINQ Promenade, look for all kinds of wild species at Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and see the interesting displays at Wayne Newton's Casa de Shenandoah.
