Here’s What You Can Do in Las Vegas, Besides Gambling and Bottle Service
It's hard to imagine Las Vegas without your mind immediately turning towards casinos and extravagant bottle service. But after a recent five-day trip to the Mojave Desert, I discovered there's much more to the city than its vibrant nightlife and 24-hour entertainment atmosphere — it's the perfect destination for a group of girlfriends (all with different interests) looking to spend a week overseas. Aside from the obvious reasons many Australians pass through Las Vegas each year, there's a growing number of travellers making dedicated trips to the city, for all it has to offer. If you're travelling from Sydney it's a relatively easy 14-hour flight to Los Angeles, and a transfer to Las Vegas. All up the travel time takes about 17 hours including a layover. Due to the time difference you arrive on the same day you depart. I was surprised to find the city had a rich foodie culture, interesting history to explore on foot, shopping for the most fashion-obsessed, some of the best spas in the world, and endless outdoor activities for those keen to keep up their workouts while on holidays.
Read on to discover why you should consider Las Vegas for your next girl's trip away — where there's something to suit everyone's ideal of the perfect holiday.
