Las Vegas is such a place that does not have a separate annual visiting time; it is amusing and interesting throughout the whole year. Perhaps the best weather is in the spring or autumn, summer although interesting is known to be too hot, because of a lot of tourists and temperatures above 40 C.
Some of the most popular tourist destinations in the world are precisely in this city. Some were seen in the famous Hollywood movies, and some you could not have even dreamed of.

Chocolate shop with a huge chocolate fountain stands out in the tremendous shopping mall. The corridors are extremely long, with glamour and luxury on every step, especially at the pool. If you book in advance on condition that you won’t stay for the weekend or on a holiday, you can get a good deal for the room at this hotel. Otherwise the prices are high. The biggest attraction of the hotel Bellagio is a man-made lake size fountain. The shows take place every 30 minutes in the afternoon and every 15 minutes in the evening.

One of the most famous is certainly Viva Las Arepas, with the best impressions and reviews from tourists coming from all over the world.

We had fun checking out the set and store of the show Pawn Stars. We even got to be in one of their daily filmings as extras. Just show up early and stand in line and you’ll get to be an extra too! Fun to see yourself on the show in the background walking around acting like you aren’t paying attention to the negotiation going on.
Regardless what you’re looking for you will surely find it in Las Vegas.
