Las Vegas, Nevada
Famous around the world for its neon lights, lavish casinos, and year-round entertainment, Las Vegas, Nevada, is the ideal destination for the Royal Holiday member looking for an all-inclusive vacation. Regardless of whether one is interested in high-class dining and shopping, family friendly amusements, or old-fashioned “Sin City” entertainment, Las Vegas will accommodate any Royal Holiday member’s desires. In addition to all the fun and excitement centered around the Las Vegas Strip, the city and the wider region contain many excellent excursions, from Freemont Street to the Hoover Dam.
Royal Holiday offers members the choice between two luxurious hotels, both within walking distance of many of the city’s top attractions. The Jockey Club, with a prime location in the center of the Strip, provides groups and families with ample room to relax in sumptuous Ambassador Suites. It also offers many in-hotel amenities, such as a complementary gym and sauna, tennis courts, and a sunny pool. For travelers seeking a more boutique experience, the Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel possesses an abundance of class and style. Located next to the Las Vegas Convention Center, it is perfect for businessmen and women attending regional events. The hotel’s AAA Four Diamond Award ranking makes it the ideal choice for travelers looking for the best service and greatest comforts.
However, staying in one’s hotel room means missing out on one of America’s most dynamic and interesting cities. Many tourists travel to the Las Vegas Strip in order to enjoy the city’s best-known feature: the panoply of fabulously decorated and lavishly appointed casino resorts. The cheapest way to experience this famous stretch of pavement comes in the form of the “Deuce,” a double-decker bus that travels between the end of the Strip and downtown. Visitors will want to see the Bellagio’s regularly scheduled fountain show and visit Mandalay Bay’s impressive Shark Reef.
Those looking for a VIP experience should start with one of Las Vegas’ premium restaurants, such as MGM’s Nobhill or Atelier de Joel Robuchon, the Wynn’s SW Steakhouse, or Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesar’s Palace. In addition, Royal Holiday members should be sure to experience Las Vegas’ rich buffet culture, with the Wynn’s breakfast buffet topping the list. The Strip also promises endless entertainment and largely delivers the thrills with acts such as Cirque du Soleil. Brittney Spears’ recent introduction to the city’s list of resident performers suggests that Vegas will continue to feature well-loved pop idols.
Las Vegas serves as an excellent point of departure for numerous nearby attractions, including the impressive Hoover Dam and the ever-popular Grand Canyon. Royal Holiday members will also enjoy sampling the city’s weirder tourist spots, including the Liberace Museum, the Atomic Testing Museum, and Circus Circus’ infamous merry-go-round bar. However, Las Vegas’ main draw, gambling, has captivated tourists for years, and the city continues to lure gamblers with casinos like the Golden Nugget, Caesars Palace, the Palms, and the Sahara providing endless gaming fun, from high-stakes poker to nickel slots.
