NEVADA

Serendipity 3

Las Vegas has got to be the world’s capital for excess and indulgence. Not only in the city’s casinos, but also in its restaurants, and none more so than Serendipity 3 in Caesar’s Palace. Not only do they offer foot-long hot dogs, and triple-layered grilled cheese sandwiches, but there is also a $1,000 ice cream sundae on the menu – the perfect treat for if you’ve just won big. Just be sure to give them 48-hours’ notice. Here’s another record breaker…

Buffets

It has to be said that the Silver State doesn’t offer as wide a variety of native foods as other states, but they more than make up for that fact by putting on some of the best buffets you have ever seen. This is quite staggering…

High on your list of things to visit whilst in the Silver State should be the Hoover Dam. The sheer scale of it, with its graceful curve and art deco styling will blow you away. The guided tours provide a fascinating look into its history.

Mob
Museum

If you’re a fan of gangster movies, you will love the Mob Museum in Downtown Las Vegas. The museum, headed up by a former FBI Special Agent, tells an enthralling story of the history of organised crime in America. There are plenty of artefacts from the FBI and mobsters alike throughout the thoughtfully curated exhibitions.

Another must-do during your time in Sin City is to pull the car over at the side of the road, and take a selfie with the famous Welcome to Las Vegas sign.

Festival

If gambling isn’t really your thing, perhaps the week-long Burning Man Festival in Black Rock Desert is more up your street. That is, if you can get your hands on a couple of the highly sought-after tickets!
