City Summer Holidays - Las Vegas
Taking a flight to the oasis in the desert that is Las Vegas will give you a fantastic summer holiday. Whether you are a day time person or a night owl, you are sure to fall for the glitz, glamour and bright lights of the Strip. Everything is big in Vegas, with its thousand room hotels with roller coasters in the lobby to the tallest observation tower in the US, and everything is there for your enjoyment.
During the day Las Vegas can either be incredibly laid back and relaxed or full of adrenalin rushes. If you want to chill by the swimming pool with a book you will be sure to find a spot that suits you just right; but if you want to make a bit more of a splash then being in the pool is sure to cool you off as well – with wave pools and swim up bars or blackjack, they’re a great way to stay cool but still have fun.
