Las Vegas: The Perennial Playground

Located in the American Southwest's Mojave Desert, Las Vegas has served as an oasis for fun-seekers since the 1940s. Founded in 1905, the city's evolution toward what it is today began in the 1930s, when the state of Nevada legalized gambling. By the end of World War II, Las Vegas boasted the first of its swanky hotels and casinos, which have only grown increasingly elaborate over the decades.

'The Strip', a 7km stretch of South Las Vegas Boulevard, is where you'll find the hotels and casinos for which the city is so famous. Here you'll also be able to make the most of excellent restaurants, nightly entertainment, crystal-clear pools, and spas. With such diverse offerings, city breaks in Las Vegas can be as relaxing or as non-stop as you choose to make them.
