What are the top experiences for visitors to Las Vegas?
Explore the Venetian
One of the most beautifully-designed hotels to experience in Las Vegas is the Venetian. This hotel and casino is modelled on the architecture of Venice in Italy. Canals wind through the Venetian, and Italian restaurants and designer shops are dotted throughout the hotel. Visitors with cheap flights to Las Vegas may just feel as though they have stepped out of Sin City and into Venice. Spend some time exploring the canals and walkways of the Venetian, gaze at a recreation of the Sistine Chapel, and watch street performers in St. Mark’s Square.
See a Cirque du Soleil Show
One of the top experiences to have after your flights to Las Vegas is attending a Cirque du Soleil show. This world-famous circus group originated in Montreal, but has become most celebrated for its seven shows in Las Vegas. Each Cirque du Soleil show features breathtaking acrobatics and visual effects. When you book tickets to Las Vegas, look to lock in seats at one of the spectacular performances. Popular shows to see include the aquatic-themed show O; funhouse-inspired Mystère; and Love, which is based on music by The Beatles.
Red Rock Canyon
Las Vegas is notorious for the glitz and glamour along The Strip. But if you are interested in experiencing a different side to the city after your flights to Las Vegas, Nevada, rent a car with Webjet and head to Red Rock Canyon on the city’s outskirts. The sandstone rock of the canyon is a striking red colour, and there is a 20-kilometre (13-mile) scenic drive that weaves its way through the canyon and which you can follow. Along the way, there are many spots where visitors with airfares to Las Vegas can park to enjoy expansive views and stretch their legs on hiking trails. Landmarks to keep an eye open for in Red Rock Canyon include Mount Wilson, Ice Box Canyon, and the Keystone Thrust Fault.
