Las Vegas is far more now than the gambling capital of the world. When I went on holiday to Las Vegas I stayed at the Luxur Hotel. The Luxor is the hotel that is built like an Egyptian pyramid and the hotel is themed on Egypt even as far as the restaurants, the bars and the bedrooms. There is a huge casino as The Luxor Hotel and many people were on the slot machines even as I went down for breakfast.
Whilst gambling is still a big part of what Las Vegas has to offer the city has now become the entertainment capital of the world. The themed hotels, the world class restaurants and, of course the entertainment. When I visited Las Vegas I went to see Celine Dion. She has started another 3 year residency at Caesars Palace but there are many other fantastic shows that you can see in Las Vegas.
Here is the Global Holidays run down of the best shows to see in Las Vegas –
The shows take your breath away with the sheer extravagance of the acrobatics. Cirque du Soleil have seven shows in Las Vegas including Mystere at Treasure Island, O at the Bellagio, The Beatles Love at The Mirage and the new resident Cirque du Soleil show, Viva Elvis at Aria Resort & Casino. Call 0845 299 4450 to book a ticket.
The Smith Centre for Performing Arts will soon launch runs of Mary Poppins, The Color Purple and Wicked.
Las Vegas is always fantastic for live music. From blues and rock and roll at The House of Blues to megastars like Celine Dion, there is music for everyone. Rod Stewart starts an 18 show run in August and Elton John is back with another 3 year residency from 28 September.
The Blue Man Group is good value for money and you will also find, one of my favourite musicals, The Lion King at The Mandalay Bay Hotel. The list of shows in Las Vegas does not stop there. You will also find Phantom of the Opera at the incrdible Venetian Hotel. You can take a gondola ride on the look-a-like Venice canals before the show starts to start your night of entertainment.
If you are looking for something a little different why not go on The Mob Tour of Las Vegas? The mob may have left Vegas but this tour is keeping that part of the city’s history alive and well. The Vegas Mob Tour gives guests a chance to delve into the city’s dark past on a two-and-a-half hour tour that visits some of the restaurants and other sites where murders, strange disappearances and mob activity occurred.
If you like nightclubs you will not be short of clubs to visit. Recently opened clubs include The Paris Hotel’s Chateau Nightclub and Gardens the Gallery Nighclub in Planet Hollywood and The Marquee Nighclub in the Cosmopolitan Hotel.
