Entering Sin City, the city of sin, and walking the Strip is also a risk of putting your soul to the devil. In Las Vegas, casinos have replaced banks, and poker chips are the main currency of exchange. The world's greatest hotels coexist here, each with a different theme. In the huge air-conditioned rooms, we sit down around a green carpet and let the dealer's hand decide his fate... Because Las Vegas is also the city of all possibilities: you can get plucked in a spin at Caesars Palace, or you can raise a mountain of dollars on a simple bluff. For those who know how to linger, life in Las Vegas doesn't stop at gambling: it continues on a roller coaster that crosses a hotel lobby in a few loops, on the benches of a small white chapel that marries couples in a quarter of an hour, in the darkness of a concert hall where magicians, showgirls or acrobats perform.... or even by a road trip from a few hours to a few days in the superb landscapes of the surrounding national parks, such as in the Death Valley for example. If the city can surprise, amuse, disconcert, provoke the most vivid repulsions as well as the strongest addictions, it nevertheless remains an essential stage of the American West and perfectly expresses the ideal of the American dream. A trip to discover by following the advice of a tour guide on Las Vegas.

When to go to Las Vegas?

Depending on the events you wish to see, the period of your stay may vary. Here are some tips on when to go to Las Vegas. Las Vegas organizes "special" events all year round (not to mention a multitude of congresses and conventions). Two of them attract a significant number of visitors each year: the World Series of Poker Tour (WSOP), which makes the city a promised land for seasoned players (between May and July with a final in November), and the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR), the national rodeo finals (about ten days in December).

High season. The weeks of tourist excitement are those of July-August, despite the desert climate of the city and its very high temperatures, and late December, during the holidays. The period of March 15 and May 15 is quite coveted by young Americans who travel to Las Vegas for spring break. In addition, there are some public holidays, such as Thanksgiving (4th Thursday in November) or important events. This is the case for the World Series of Poker (June-July) or the annual rodeo championship (December). Do not forget to hold many conventions during the year that attract a large number of visitors and lead to the disappearance of many hotel promotions.

Low season. If you want to avoid the crowds in Las Vegas and enjoy the great national parks without the extreme cold, prefer the May-June and September-October periods.
