Overview


Open Road’s Best of Las Vegas
gives readers a small number of great choices and itineraries for one-day, weekend, one-week and two-week trips to Vegas. Find out where the most romantic restaurants are, see instantly our don’t-miss picks like the Forum Shops or the Mirage volcano, visit the hottest casinos, take one of our special walking tours along the Strip, or take in the surrounding beauty at Valley of Fire State Park or Hoover Dam. We show readers how to see the Strip at night while sipping champagne in a helicopter, how to tour Lake Las Vegas in a gondola, which production shows are a waste of time and which are spectacular, and how to pamper yourself at a world-class spa. And if you’ve come to gamble – as most people do! – this is the only book that offers nearly 70 pages on how to win at poker and other games by gambling guru Avery Cardoza.

Readers can flip through the book and go to the section that matches how much time they have budgeted, and then go right to that section and see our expert trip ideas. They will also see at a glance which hotels and restaurants are best for them, where the happening nightlife is, the best sports and recreation, and where the most authentic, local shopping can be found
