Everyone knows Las Vegas for its bright lights, jaw-dropping hotels and money-dropping casinos but there’s so much more to Sin City! From delectable restaurants to glamorous nightclubs on the strip to dramatic scenery and fascinating sites off it.
With some great camping sites that keep you out of the large-scale hotels with their pricey resort fees, you have the freedom to nip in and around the sites of Vegas at your leisure. Parking is normally free on the strip but watch out for those car park height restrictions!
If you fancy a night on the town, park up and grab an Uber or the reliable Deuce bus to the strip. If you’re feeling like a splurge is in order, then STK at the Cosmopolitan hotel is fantastic. If a more fun vibe is in order then Cabo Wabo at Miracle Mile offers great Mexican food and even better people watching as it’s located on the strip (with some handy mist fans if it’s a bit steamy).
Las Vegas is now commonly referred to as the Ibiza of America and where once people solely got their nightlife from Celine Dion or that dude with the tiger, now people flock to spectacular nightclubs with DJ line-ups at affordable prices (unlike the drink costs). The Light sees DJs perform with Cirque du Soleil performers creating the backdrop or pick one of the day parties at Marquee.
Heading out of Vegas is where the real drama happens with the iconic Grand Canyon a must on any Nevada road trip. Where many people cram the Grand Canyon into a day trip, you’ve the luxury of time, as you drive your home out into the canyon (not literally!).
The Hoover Dam is marvel of engineering and one of the picks for the region. Lauded as one of the greatest engineering achievements of the 20th century, a trip to the visitor’s centre here details the construction and history of the dam, as well as a stunning look over Lake Mead, America’s largest man-made reservoir.
Heading further into Nevada, another JUCY favourite is Lake Tahoe – perfectly pretty in the summer and a skier’s dream, with over 7 world-class resorts to choose from. With great winter rates, the JUCY Champ is the perfect vehicle for a ski trip.
