Las Vegas is much more than loud slot machines, and
noisy casinos. Seriously, there is so much more to do than
gamble and eat from block-long food tables. Las Vegas is
home to the some of the finest entertainment, attractions,
shopping, and golf courses in the world.
Your entertainment options are unlimited in this city
known as "America's Playground". There are thrilling
roller coasters, dolphin and magic shows, and street shows
such as Treasure Island's life-like pirate battle. You can
even tour Egypt in a simulated ride. There are places to
bowl, enjoy a leisurely spa, shop 'til you drop, and even
get married. The possibilities are almost overwhelming, so
make sure to plan, or have some sort of idea what you
would like to see and do while you are there.
You will definitely want to put a trip to Fremont Street
on your schedule. Fremont Street is a short walk from
downtown Las Vegas and is a brief stroll from many of the
hotels or you can ride the public transport which is
extremely clean and passenger friendly. Look overhead as

you will be amazed by the over 2.1 million lights and the
state-of-the-art sound system in the canopy built 90
feet above street level.

you have come to the perfect place. Many of the spas offer
fitness centers. In addition you can treat yourself to
facials, massages, body wraps, saunas, heated whirlpools,
steam rooms and other treatments, including tanning.
Do not dare forget the fountains at Bellagio. It is one of
the most memorable and spectacular sights in Vegas or
maybe even the world! You will be hypnoized as the water
takes on a life all it's own and shows off in perfect
synchronization to opera and broadway favorites and
everything thing else in between. Best of all this show is
no charge as it can be experienced from the open sidewalk.
