Reputations are hard-won and equally difficult to shake. This is true especially true in the Nevada desert, where those who run the city of Las Vegas try desperately to turn Sin City into a destination more renowned for its cultural capital than for its all you can eat buffets and blue rinse dominated slots.
The good news is that despite there still being a long road ahead for Vegas, there are already signs that it is changing for the better. Here are just some of the reasons you might be tempted to give Las Vegas another shot.
There’s No Need to Spend All Day in a Resort
There was a time when the only way you could enjoy a Vegas resort to the fullest was to be present within the casino’s walls.
However, things have changed substantially since then, meaning that many of the strip’s most revered venues have their very own apps, meaning you can indulge in any activity in and around Vegas and still play all your favorite games online. Most apps will even throw in the sort of bonuses you would never receive on the casino floor!
Making a Pact with Mother Nature
For too long Las Vegas ignored the fact that beyond its suburbs there was a wealth of incredible natural beauty.
As tourists become more environmentally conscious and want to spend more time in the great outdoors the approaches resorts are taking are changing. Now there are opportunities to rock climb in the Red Rock Canyon National Park, go hiking in Bryce Canyon National Park, or even take a sunset hot air balloon ride, which is sure to take your breath away.
Culture Vultures are Circling the Strip
Las Vegas has long been known for its vibrant stage shows, which run in all seasons come rain or shine. But now the city is trying to branch out, particularly when it comes to live music and sport.
When it comes to sport, Las Vegas now has its very own NFL and NHL franchises as well as a dedicated esports arena.
Meanwhile, for music lovers many of the strip’s resorts also now have super clubs to rival any on the planet, with world-famous DJs playing one after another. There are also huge dance music festivals springing up like the Electric Daisy Carnival, which is not to be missed!
