How ’bout that ride in? I guess that’s why they call it Sin City.

I have never experienced a place like Las Vegas; the bright lights, the gambling, and the humidity. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted with 40 degrees heat which was unbearable. We stayed at the Wyndham Grand Desert curtesy of a timeshare just off the strip. Due to the heat, we spent most days around the pool relaxing. An absolute must for Vegas is visiting all the hotels on the strip in the evenings, each one has their own theme, casino and nightlife. My favourite hotels were the Venetian, Bellagio and Caesars Palace. The main reasons being the punting at the Venetian, the fountains at the Bellagio, and well, of course where they filmed the Hangover at Caesars Palace. The highlight of my trip was definitely the Grand Canyon helicopter tour, this was my first time in a helicopter and was absolutely unreal – albeit with a ridiculous hangover from the night before. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the Grand Canyon as it’s an unforgettable memory and the best view of the Nevada.
Top Tips for Vegas
1. Visit all the hotels
2. Book a helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon
3. Take extra money to lose in the casino
4. Take suncream everywhere as it’s rarely below 30 degrees
