Here you can take a stroll down Las Vegas Boulevard, taking in all the themed hotels and casinos. Take in a live show, try your luck in a casino or take a trip to the top of the Stratosphere hotel tower, the tallest building west of the Mississippi, to enjoy the views. Shopaholics will be in their element, as you can enjoy luxury shopping in any of the premier hotels, or drive to one of the designer outlet malls in search of a bargain. The city is also famous for its world-class dining. To see a different side of Las Vegas, visit Fremont Street, a historic street filled with shops, restaurants and casinos, topped by a canopy screen where more than 12 million lights put on a spectacular show.
