From it's earliest history, Las Vegas has been a top showcase for the world's top entertainers, and a mecca for high rollers with plenty of cash to spend at some of the world's most famous casinos.

On the must-do list, of course, includes the royal treatment inside Caesar's Palace, a gondola ride at The Venetian, and daily free entertainment at the dancing fountains of The Bellagio (hours are  from 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM Monday through Friday and every 15 minutes from 8:00 PM to midnight.)

And, of course, no trip to Las Vegas would be complete without a photo-op in front of the iconic "Wecome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign (located on Las Vegas Blvd. South across from the Bali Hai Golf Club.)

Surprisingly, despite the glitz and glamour, Las Vegas can be one of the cheapest travel destinations out there offering plenty of opportunities for discount airfares, travel coupons, give backs, and free eye-dazzling attractions outside major hotel casinos along the strip.

And, once you arrive, don't forget to purchase extra luggage to hall all that loot home from Las Vegas outlet malls located on and off The Strip, and offering huge discounts on designer brand fashions.

Caesar's Palace, a gondola ride at The Venetian, and free entertainment at The Bellagio's dancing fountains.

Find out more about the Diamond of the Desert - a destination often described as a mini-world tour complete with Las Vegas for non-gamblers plus the best in shopping, live entertainment, sun, fun and, of course, world renowned hotel casinos - a chance to come back wealthier than when you left.
