Las Vegas

Sin City

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 Zak Bagans' The Haunted Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Don Laughlin's Classic Car Collection (in Laughlin), Willow Beach (in Fort Mohave) and Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge (in Amargosa Valley). There's lots more to do: explore the stunning scenery at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, see the interesting displays at Pinball Hall of Fame, get curious at Bodies The Exhibition, and ponder the design of Fountains of Bellagio.
