Las Vegas is renowned internationally for its wide range of offerings in entertainment and nightlife. Over the years, it has been given some amusing nicknames, such as the 'Entertainment Capital of the World', 'America's Playground', and 'Sin City'. Its tolerance for a variety of adult entertainment and gambling venues attracts a large number of tourists from different corners of the globe. The city has also been a popular setting for various films, television series, music videos, and literature. Although it is famed for its magnificent entertainment venues, the city has also become popular over the years for business conventions.

Savings made while booking flights to Las Vegas well in advance can help you explore its popular attractions. Flights and hotel stays would be much cheaper if you make your booking for the spring season, which begins in March and continues until May. The daytime temperatures are quite warm and there are lesser tourists visiting during this time of the year. Autumn from September to November is also an excellent time to visit this city, as the daytime temperatures are relatively pleasant despite the approaching winter. The summer season from June to August and winter from December to February are the busy tourist seasons.

All the impressive entertainment complexes are located along 'The Strip', which is a central part of Las Vegas Boulevard running through the city for 2.5 miles from north-east to south-west. Many of them have been constructed with a unique theme and are home to glamorous performance venues, luxurious rooms, and other delights. One of the memorable sights that every visitor to the city cherishes in his or her memories is the view of vibrant neon signs. Some of these signs that were discarded or faded over a period of time have been purchased and stored in the Neon Museum. You can explore these historic neon signs in the museum with the help of a guided tour.

Another interesting museum worth visiting is the Mob Museum, known officially as the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement. The Neoclassical building in which the museum is located was the place where the famous Kefauver Committee hearings took place in the year 1950. These hearings had revealed some shocking facts about the organised crime in Las Vegas and other parts of the United States. You can know more about the history of the American mafia with the help of interactive displays and video clips in this museum.

While holidaying in this part of the world, you can also indulge in some thrilling activities. Among them is the helicopter ride over Las Vegas, which allows you to enjoy a birds-eye view of the city and its surrounding areas. If you want to explore the entire city in the helicopter along with the Grand Canyon, opt for a 6.5-hour tour. Among the other exciting things to do in the city is a ride in the High Roller Ferris wheel, which is located off the Strip on the Linq Promenade's far end. This Ferris wheel takes 30 minutes to complete one rotation and provides awe-inspiring views of The Strip and the surrounding area.
