Overview

Discover what to do and where to go with Insight City Guide Las Vegas, your comprehensive travel guide to the world’s most outlandish city. Full-color photos throughout combine with the authoritative text to help you explore the spectacle in Nevada, USA.
Our “Best Of Las Vegas” section highlights top attractions and activities not to miss, while features cover a range of subjects, from the people themselves and the effect the Mob had on the city’s development, to how the city is portrayed in film and the headline sports events held here. Eight Places chapters cover the entire city, from iconic hotels such as Caesars Palace and relative newcomers like Wynn Las Vegas, to the 18b arts district and downtown. Four additional chapters cover excursions to Red Rock Canyon, Henderson, Boulder City, Lake Mead and Hoover Dam, and the area to the north of the city. Full-color maps throughout help you get your bearings, while the travel tips are full of travel advice including selective hotel listings, nightlife and sport options, and information on the city’s transport systems.
