Las Vegas also has plenty of shows to catch – Cirque De Soleil at the Bellagio, The Ultimate Variety Show at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, Penn and Teller at the Rio Suite Hotel and Casino, Blue Man Group at the Luxor Hotel and Casino, or the Mac King Comedy Magic Show at Harrah’s.

4. Is Las Vegas safe for tourists?

Las Vegas is generally considered quite safe for tourists. Areas frequented by tourists like the Strip have considerable police presence and are regarded as being very safe. Nevertheless, tourists should take all the basic precautions that they do while traveling. This means staying out of poorly lit areas, not flashing around cash or valuables and being on your guard for scammers and con artists who may try to take advantage of you especially if you are intoxicated.

5. Which are the best places to stay in Las Vegas?

Las Vegas is a massive city with lots of hotels and areas to choose from including well-known hotels like the Bellagio, Caesars Palace, MGM Grand, the Luxor, and the Venetian. The best place for you will depend on your reason for visiting and your budget. If you are a first-timer, try and find a place near the Strip. The Strip is a four-mile stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard that lets you experience everything the Sin City has to offer - casinos, clubs, restaurants, and attractions. If you are mainly into casinos, head Downtown – it’s near the Strip but is supposed to have more player-friendly terms and conditions. If arts and culture are more your scene try the Arts District. Symphony Park is one of the newer neighborhoods and is ideal for families. For honeymooners and couples looking for something romantic travel a bit further to Mt. Charleston.

6. Which are the best places to eat in Las Vegas?

In a city that caters to every indulgence can food be far behind? With celebrity chef-driven restaurants in most of the best hotels, Vegas is fast evolving into the top destination for foodies. Go to Nomads for a classic albeit expensive Vegas experience. You can also try Wolfgang Puck’s Spago and Cut, Shawn McClain’s Sage, Michael Mina’s Bardot Brasserie, Daniel Krohmer’s Other Mama, James Trees’s Esther’s Kitchen, Thomas Keller’s Bouchon, Gordon Ramsay’s Hell's Kitchen or Jamie Tran’s Black Sheep; for affordable options try Slice of Vegas, Flour & Barley, Javier’s, Tacos el Gordo, Le Thai, Burger Bar, Chica or Secret Pizza.

7. When is the best time of year to visit Las Vegas?

There is no wrong time to visit Las Vegas with activities and events happening all through the year. Do keep in mind that Las Vegas is in the middle of a desert and has a dry, desert climate. June, July, and August are quite warm and if you cannot tolerate heat avoid those months. March to May and September to November offer the most moderate weather and are ideal for visiting Vegas. If lazing by the pool in the sun is on your agenda, then plan to visit in April and May. Do note that hotel rooms tend to be more expensive in April, September, and October. Another thing to keep in mind is that hotel rooms cost more on weekends.
