Welcome to the home of the high rollers. Las Vegas casinos are wealth and extravagance personified. Casinos and hotels dominate the skyline of Vegas, with interiors that are just as jaw-dropping to behold. Theatres, clubs, artworks, restaurants, shopping malls, and even gondola rides – Las Vegas casinos are crazy in the best possible way!
Stalwarts of The Strip stand alongside modern icons, worlds and cultures collide, and millions of dollars pass in and out of the casinos every single day. There are over 40 casinos along The Strip alone, and over 100 in the greater Las Vegas area, all with their own quirks and extravagancies.
The ARIA is the place to play it big in Vegas. The dark timber interior of the hotel and the magnificent water features that grace the casino make ARIA the centrepiece of the CityCenter precinct. ARIA also boasts 4,004 guest rooms, 16 restaurants, and industry-level theatres. Beautiful art and sculptures add an extra touch of sophistication to the experience of spending time here.
The majestic fountains that precede the grand entrance are enough to stop Vegas traffic. Inside, The Bellagio Conservatory and Botanic Gardens change with the seasons, and the hotel’s very own Gallery of Fine Art hosts an impressive collection of contemporary works. Even the registration desk is made from sculptured glass, commissioned by the casino’s eccentric proprietor, Steve Wynn.
From Vegas to Venice! Venetian canals and a replica of St Mark’s Square greet visitors to the Venetian-Palazzo. Home to some of the finest fashion at the Grand Canal Shops and best restaurants in the city, the Palazzo will not disappoint. Take a lazy gondola ride through the blue waters of the canals and explore one of the most fantastical spots in all of Vegas.
Caesars Palace opened in 1966 and is one of the last bastions of Vegas’ golden age. Caesars has been the haunting ground for countless famous faces throughout its illustrious history. The Rat Pack once called it home, and some of the world’s greatest performers still regularly grace the stage of the casino’s 4,100-seat Colosseum.
Several kilometres off The Strip near Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area lies Red Rock Resort. Its red ochre interior and exquisite chain of more than 3.1-million Swarovski and Preciosa crystals make Red Rock the jewel of the Mojave Desert. The resort’s 7,000-seat outdoor amphitheatre and its pool concert series are huge drawcards year-round.
