Product description

Discover places to visit and things to do in Las Vegas with "Insight City Guide Las Vegas", your comprehensive travel guide to the world's most outlandish city. Full-colour photos throughout combine with the authoritative text to provide inspiration and information to help you explore the raucous spectacle in Nevada, USA. Be inspired by the "Best Of Las Vegas" section, which highlights the city's unmissable top attractions and experiences. Insight's trademark history and culture coverage provides a fascinating introduction to Vegas' birth and continued growth, with features looking at the city's inhabitants, the role of the Mob in the city's development, how Vegas is portrayed in film, and the headline sports events held here. Eight Places chapters cover the entire city in detail, from iconic hotels such as Caesars Palace and the Venetian to relative newcomers like Wynn Las Vegas, from the Bellagio's impressive dancing fountains to the restaurants helmed by celebrity chefs. Four additional chapters cover excursions to Red Rock Canyon, Henderson, Boulder City, Lake Mead and Hoover Dam, as well as the area to the north of the city. Lavish photo features offer a unique insight into the fun-loving city, covering Cirque du Soleil, pool parties, the variety of nightlife and the 18b arts district. Full-colour maps throughout help you get your bearings, while the travel tips are packed with advice including selective hotel listings, nightlife and sport options, and information on the city's transport systems.
