Las Vegas is the number one destination for fun and entertainment. This becomes evident before you even get to your hotel on your first trip to Vegas. As your cab or shuttle bus makes its way from the airport, huge billboards appear announcing prominent Las Vegas entertainment acts that are truly world-class in every sense.
Here are 4 reasons why Las Vegas is the best place to go for fun and entertainment:
1. Las Vegas offers variety like none other. It's a virtual smorgasbord of entertainment delivering a vast selection that caters to every taste, desire and budget. You can spend a reasonable amount if you take in different big-name shows every night of your visit. But with such a selection, it's easy to also mix in some lower cost and even free entertainment options.
2. Like any major city, Las Vegas attractions top musical acts covering every genre. But what's different about Vegas is that most acts perform for several nights or weeks in a row. Some acts like Celine Dion are booked for years at a time. These long-term bookings are something you just do not see in most other places. But in Vegas, it's a regular occurrence.
3. What's striking about Vegas entertainment is the level of quality – both in the performers and in the facilities. Actors, musicians, comics and acrobats – you name it and Vegas has it and all are professional in every sense of the word.
Every major hotel on the strip has at least one major theater or entertainment venue. Every time I visit a different venue, I'm surprised by the large size of the facility and the amount of equipment used in the production.
4. Another huge advantage Las Vegas entertainment offers are the shows that run late into the evening. For night owls, it's ideal. Forget having just a 7pm and 9pm show. You'll often have an 11pm and 1am option as well. After all Vegas is a city that never sleeps.
After visiting and sampling from its vast variety of entertainment choices, it's no wonder Las Vegas is considered by many to be the entertainment capital of the world.
Las Vegas entertainment is everywhere. You do not have to look far and any hotel concierge will be happy to help you.
Whether you're planning to several top-rated acts, or a low key visit, be sure to take in some of the various free entertainment options available to anyone. Personal favorites include the musical water fountain show at the Bellagio, the erupting volcano at the Mirage, and the sinking ship show presented just outside Treasure Island.
