The Weekend Luxury Getaway: Lavish Las Vegas (Nevada)

For incredible sights, North America is queen of the beauty pageant; a contestant blessed with an abundance of variety and plenty of pure “K.O.” wow appeals.  From the California beaches and the redwood forests to Nevada’s canyons and mountains; from Arizona’s expansive deserts to palm trees and clear waters of Florida Keys. It would take a lifetime to see and appreciate all of the USA’s natural wonders. Then you add a smattering of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the World- shopping, night-life, amazing restaurants, museums, galleries, and more iconic sights than your camera has memory to fit in – and you have just scarped the barrel of what lies ahead for your US adventure.  

Our next stop takes us to the lavish and glamours capital of Las Vegas. With so much to see and do, there is only one rule: whatever happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas.
