From the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas to the serenity of Lake Tahoe and the rolling plains of cowboy country – Nevada holidays are full of fun, adventure and wholesome entertainment. Situated on southwestern side of the US, it's the perfect holiday spot for the whole family.
For adventure lovers and nature enthusiasts, Lake Tahoe – the largest alpine lake in the US – offers a plethora of exciting winter sports and outdoor activities, such as skiing, yachting, hiking and nature watching. Southern Nevada is also home to Hoover Dam, a true feat of architectural ingenuity, and Mike O’ Callaghan-Pat Tillman bridge, the world’s tallest concrete arch bridge. Take a day out to visit the bridge and stop in nearby Boulder city for lunch with family.
Further down south is Las Vegas, the gambling and entertainment capital of the world. Place a bet at a world-famous casino, catch a star at a live show or tuck into the juiciest steaks around at one of the resort's fantastic restaurants. The lavish hotels that fringe the Strip (the main boulevard of Vegas), are definitely worth a visit thanks to their awe-inspiring architecture, big-time casinos, spectacular clubs – and even roaring coasters. From the towering MGM Grand to the massive pyramid-like Luxor hotel and the carnivalesque Circus Circus, the hotels in Vegas are sure to woo you with their sheer grandeur. Holidays in Nevada are not complete without a mandatory visit to the Grand Canyon, a mile-deep geological wonder that offers rafting, hiking, mule rides and an escape from the hustle and bustle of Sin City.
