An oasis right in the Mojave desert, Las Vegas developped itself at the beginning of the 20th century, thanks to the construction of the Hoover dam as well as profitable gambling legislations. From there, the "Strip" was born, the main boulevard that crosses the city, bordered by hotels and casinos all more sumptuous that the next.
If you are a player, you can be certain that you are indeed in paradise. Thousands of different gambling machines, blackjack, poker and roulette tables, spread between more than 100 casinos, will allow anyone to find their favorite game. However, even if you don't play, Las Vegas will seduce you. Its wonderful restaurants, with renowned chefs, its extraordinary shows, just the city lights are an attraction themselves. Las Vegas is a city of grandeur.
Enjoy a relaxing morning to go and observe the sharks in the Shark Reef Aquarium at the Mandalay Bay, put on your walking shoes and admire the Nevada's arid scenery while trekking around the Red Rock Canyon. For the nostalgic, go to the Neon Museum that displays hundreds of old neon signs.
