Travel Tips to Las Vegas (LAS)
Glamour in Las Vegas
In 1860, Fort Baker was built where Las Vegas is today. It was an important stop for travellers between California and New Mexico. In 1903, a rancher widow sold her land to the railway company, which recognised its worth and re-sold it in plots. Thus, the now-famous city was founded. Nowadays, approximately 40 million people take a flight to Las Vegas annually. The city became famous thanks to its large number of casinos, as well as wedding chapels. Due to the state’s uncomplicated approach to marriage, these chapels are used by couples from all around the world.
Giant dome roof as a screen
The Fremont Street Experience is just one of Las Vegas’ countless sights. It consists of a dome roof, which stretches over five blocks in the aforementioned street. It’s over 1000 feet long and, at its highest point, 88 feet tall. Within it you’ll find hotels, casinos, restaurants and shops. The underside of this roof is what makes it unique, though: it’s a giant LED screen, which can display over 16.7 million colours. After dark, exciting shows are presented on it. As well as street artists, there are also two stages located under the dome, on which you will find regular live bands.
Dancing water and emotional music
Many of the attractions in Las Vegas are presented by hotels; like the famous Fountains of Bellagio. Here the water of a lake is brought alive by 1,200 nozzles, which create fountains with a height of up to 460 feet and a length of up to 980 feet. 4,000 lights illuminate this fantastic water display, which is presented a few times per hour every day between 3 pm and 12 am. It is combined perfectly with various music pieces, ranging from classical and opera music to pop and musical theatre, accompanied by a little fountain magic.
Free fall from the Stratosphere Tower
Another fascinating attraction of the city is 1168-foot high Stratosphere Tower. It is way more than just an observation tower offering a unique panoramic view. High up above Las Vegas, you’ll find attractions that will raise your adrenaline: including the “Big Shot”, which transports the brave an additional 150 feet higher, before plummeting them over 900 feet. The “Insanity” merry-go-round is located outside of the observation platform, which guarantees an extra thrill. The “X-Scream” swing also carries visitors over the edge of the building. You can experience a kind of bungee jumping with a “Skyjump” from a height of 850 feet. The soft stop of the fall is achieved through a cable winch.
