Las Vegas, Nevada (NV)

Las Vegas is the party capital of the world, so if you don’t come back with plenty of stories, then you’ve not done it properly.

If you’re not planning a long break, staying close to the main action is your best bet. Vegas has nearly 150,000 rooms, so you should have your pick of the bunch.

Vegas is not a huge city, so buses are the best way to get around. They’re cheap and available 24/7.

The city also has plenty of landmarks worth a visit, especially the Grand Canyon, which is one of the natural wonders of the world.
