Pauline Frommer once said, “As often as you have seen it on TV or in a movie, nothing can prepare you for your first sight of Las Vegas.” And that rings true each time we return to the city that’s constantly re-inventing itself.
Yes, “Glitter Gulch” as it’s often been called is about flashing neon lights, luxury casinos and gambling. And it’s likely the number one reason most people come to Vegas. Truth be told though, there’s so much to do and see here that even for non-gamblers, Vegas is well worth the trip.
Where to Stay
While there’s more than one facet to Vegas, there is no denying the major draw remains Las Vegas Boulevard. A section of this road is widely known as “The Strip.”

Elara by Hilton Grand Vacations features studios to four-bedroom grand villas with all the conveniences of home in a resort setting just steps from the action.
