Gamble! You really can't go to Las Vegas without having a little flutter. You may not have perfected your poker face, but there's nothing to stop you having a go on the one-armed bandits. Warning: they're highly addictive! And the casinos are a sight to be seen; you won't believe the sheer size of them and how time just slips away when you're playing. Head to the Luxor, the MGM Grand and Caesar's Palace for starters.
The roller coaster at New York New York is a great ride for thrill-seekers, giving you a fantastic view over the bright lights of the city, if you can bear to keep your eyes open throughout the barrel rolls and twists.
The Bellagio Fountain Show takes place on an eight-acre lake outside the Bellagio hotel. Every 15 minutes the show begins, sending water jets dancing and shooting up to 500 feet in the air, all set to music. It's best to catch it at night when the lighting makes it extra pretty.
Vegas is a great place to catch a show, with enough going on to rival Broadway and the West End. Artists from Celine Dion to Cee-Lo Green put on regular concerts, and some of the world's most popular musicals such as Jersey Boys are performed here. For experiences only to be found in Vegas, try the shows by the Blue Man Group or Cirque du Soleil, and prepare for your mind to be boggled.
Las Vegas holidays are all about playing hard and to really experience this city you really do have to visit at least one casino, but try not to limit your experiences to inside! South of the Strip you can escape the casino crowds in the shops and boutiques, seek out some shade in a pool or visit the Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Botanical Cactus Gardens.
