Fountains of Bellagio
One of the destination’s most iconic resorts is the Bellagio Resort and Casino. Thanks to it being featured in global blockbusters like the Oceans Eleven series, the fountains in front of the mega-resort are renowned the world over. Head there just before sunset for golden hour, as the fountains begin their magical water dancing to some of your fave tunes.
Valley of Fire
Ready to take your Insta game to… the desert? 80kms outside of Las Vegas you’ll find the stunning Valley of Fire. Filled with red rock formations made from Aztec sandstone, these rocks ‘catch fire’ on a sunny day, reflecting the sun’s rays (hence the name). Hike your way through this magnificent national park and set up a timer to catch you and the park as it sets ablaze.
You can’t visit Las Vegas without seeing a stage show - it ain’t called the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’ for nothing! Le Rêve, at the ultra-luxe Wynn, is an exclusive aquatic only-in Las Vegas show filled with lights, acrobatics and synchronised swimmers.
Red Rock Canyon
Drive twenty minutes west of Las Vegas’ Strip and you’ll hit the spectacular Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. With geologic features completely unique to the Mojave Desert, the park is a must-visit for travellers around the world. Breathtaking canyons and raw textures make for a perfect juxtaposition to the bright lights of the Strip – after all, variety is key in keeping your followers engaged.
