Las Vegas is the gambling capital of the world, of that there’s little doubt. The city seems to go to sleep as soon as the sun comes up and then awakens each evening with its multitude of casinos and over-elaborate shows.

You can take your vacation at any time of the year–Las Vegas is ready and willing every day of the year and doesn’t even calm down for Christmas Day. The summer months can be oppressive when it comes to heat, but this is also the season of pool parties. Winter weather can see chills and rain, but snow is rare and is usually viewed settling on the huge mountains outside the city limits.
