– What day is it today? – I don’t know, but I’m sure it’s a holiday!
We read “Las Vegas,” we think “casino.” I used to think so, too, but after visiting, different associations already. “The strip, the fireworks of emotion, the fun without limit, the magical atmosphere, the temptations, the excitement!” – all these things come to mind now. In the city of permissiveness.
Moscow never sleeps – no, it’s Las Vegas that never sleeps!
We were in Las Vegas this fall in September, arriving in Nevada from Oakland, California for 2.5 days. The program of the visit was extremely intense, here I have already written that we also had time to go up to the “Stratosphere”.
The city of grand hotels and ruthless consumption!
Interesting, grand entertainment projects, great world shows, cinematic, chic unusual hotels, proximity to the grand canyon, positive staff.
High prices, extreme July heat, lots of temptations and unplanned expenses, after 3 days I wanted a change of scenery.
Good afternoon! It’s hard to imagine traveling in America without the legendary entertainment city of Las Vegas. It is definitely one of the places I really wanted to visit. We all know this city from numerous movies, music videos and.
A city like no other in the world.
I, by virtue of my profession, visited a huge number of cities in the world. Each of them has its own features and atmosphere, but the degree of inner drive, the euphoria of the round-the-clock holiday of life and the smell of positive expectations is all about it.
Eh, we should go without kids.
there’s always something to do, it’s the center of entertainment, in this city you get the best hotels for a much lower price
We got to Las Vegas as part of our summer family vacation, so we had two young travelers 3 and 1 years old with us. We got to experience all the delights of this city, but we got our impression. В.
Indeed, the city of all sins and debauchery
I got to Las Vegas after the Grand Canyon. Tired after the tour of the Canyon, we literally fell out in the car and slept through it all. We got into town when it was already dark. We did not choose the hotel, but those who did.
For the sake of interest, you can visit the city and have fun
Hi all, I continue to tell you about my little trip to the United States. I have already written reviews on New York and Washington DC. This review will be about an equally famous city – Las Vegas. It reminded me of a huge club where at night.
It was good, but I was expecting a bigger experience.
All my life I’ve heard a lot about America. And no one ever said they didn’t like America. Except for one time, someone said that he was tired of being sent there too often and that he wanted to go somewhere else. And in.
It’s a beautiful, interesting, informative city.
Was in Las Vegas about a month ago and want to share my impressions about this beautiful city. The city itself is bustling and fast. There are people on the streets dressing up as some cartoon characters and taking pictures with kids, but most of all.
Bright, festive, noisy.
Hello, everyone! Here I decided to share my mixed feelings about this city, which is constantly seen in many American movies and which the Americans themselves are delighted and admired. We flew to this city.
Don’t lose your head.
Las Vegas is the capital of suicide. Every year about 500 people commit suicide there. I’m not sure that those are all losers, just that many of them want to stay in this pseudo paradise forever. And how many people are hidden in.
The most beautiful place that feels like a holiday always!
A trip to the United States is the most amazing and fascinating trip of my life. Visiting this city once you will definitely want to come back to enjoy the atmosphere of celebration and festivity. My love was boundless, the first time you visit you love everything.
Bright and unforgettable!
Good day, I want to share with you a review of my visit to the city of Las Vegas. In 2010 I was able to visit America and I toured many cities. One of my excursions was a trip to Las Vegas. I was in it with a friend.
A branch of hell on earth.
This impression was inspired by several phenomena, don’t judge it harshly. Our road to Las Vegas was straight from Death Valley-the desert, the cracked earth, the salt, the heat (March 31!). The city greeted us with an incredible amount of lights, huge flashing and shimmering.
A city of vice and debauchery in the middle of the desert, a place where bills rustle.
A huge disadvantage for non-smokers: smoking is legal in all the casinos, there is just a smoke screen. And they smoke right in your face on the street.
We made the drive from Houston to San Francisco by car. Our program called for one day and one night in Las Vegas. We were confident in our abilities, a day is enough for us.
The City of Sins and Delights – the view from the other side if you live there
Hello! There are so many different opinions about the city of Las Vegas: from enthusiastic to totally negative. And today I want to tell and show pictures about this city, as an ordinary place where people live and work.
Long live Las Vegas!
This year my friends and I vacationed in America. We had a very full program with 2500 miles and visited Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Washington D.C. and a couple of national parks. I want to tell you about.

- Katerina, Sevastopol
You have to go to Vegas with a big group! The prices at the hotel were loyal and drinks were free for the guests. We went to a few restaurants and tried the casino, but that’s entertainment for those with extra money. I’m sure those who are new to Las Vegas will like it here.
- Irina, Peterhof
I spent 3 unforgettable days in Las Vegas. You have to remember that Vegas is a very expensive city. The prices in cafes and restaurants are quite high. The city is worth a visit to see the stunning views, enjoy the atmosphere, which defies description.
- Galina, Kaliningrad
I’ve been here twice, but the strongest was the first impression. It’s a wonderful oasis among the dry desert. The most interesting thing is the main street Strip, where it’s very convenient that in the intolerable heat every store has an air conditioner and free cool water.
So, Vegas is a great place to visit with friends, family, and even kids. Round-the-clock entertainment, tours, tours, concerts, games in the “city of sins and debauchery” will not leave anyone indifferent and will give pleasant memories and photos for a lifetime . It is best to come here in early spring or fall, when it’s not too hot to fully enjoy everything and stay excited about this city!
