LAS VEGAS, NV
Las Vegas associated with great natural landscapes, but no tour of the national parks and scenery of the Southwest would be complete without at least one day visiting the spectacular casinos of The Strip – the main road through this energetic desert city. Apart from its own famous man-made attractions, Las Vegas is a good base or starting point from which to explore this part of America – together with Phoenix in Arizona, it is the most central major city in the region, with good international airline connections and all necessary facilities.
Location: Ninety nine percent of Las Vegas is like any other large American city, although with an unusually impressive setting, flanked in most directions by distant rocky mountains, close to the clear waters of Lake Mead and with a particularly mild climate – hot in summer (up to 110°F) but a pleasant 70 to 90°F for most of the year
Las Vegas Strip, the city that never sleeps!
