Las Vegas Airport
Flights from the UK to Las Vegas will land at McCarran International Airport, located only 5 miles from the Las Vegas strip. The airport is serviced by public buses, shuttle buses, taxis as well as car hire. Generally speaking most casino resorts will offer a shuttle bus to the city at a reasonable rate.
British passport holders are eligible for the USA’s visa waiver program, allowing you to visit the United States without a visa for 90 days. While you might not need to apply for a visa, you will need to gain prior authorisation through the country’s Electronic System for Travel Authorisation, commonly referred to as an ‘ESTA.’ Those who are not approved by this online system prior to their flight may run the risk of being turned away at the airport. For travel on non-British passports or for more information, please ask your consultant.
To support the adults-only entertainment theme, many casinos have created fantasy themes to transport holiday-makers away from reality. Arguably the most famous casino and hotel complex on the trip is the Bellagio, with its iconic water feature dancing to synchronised music.
This is not to be outdown though by the Mirage which boasts an erupting volcano, the Venetian Hotel where you can enjoy a gondola ride and the aptly named Golden Nugget Hotel which boasts the world's largest gold nugget. A mini version of New York and Paris can also be found along the ecclectic strip.

Las Vegas also attracts the world's best performers to entertain holiday makers. Magic shows in particular are a huge drawcard in Las Vegas with famed magicians such as David Copperfield, Chris Angel and Penn & Teller wowing crowds regularly with their mind-blowing illusions. Equally as mind-blowing are the huge range of Cirque du Soleil shows which take place each night and include titles such as O, Zumanity, The Beatles LOVE and Michael Jackson LOVE.
Some of the world's most famous muscians enjoy residencies in Las Vegas too with regular performances by divas such Celine Dion, Shania Twain and Britney Spears. Musicals are also a popular form of after dinner entertainment here with common titles including Rock of Ages, MAMMA MIA and Jersey Boys.
