Out and About in Vegas


What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?


Not when it comes to sharing what the “Entertainment Capital of the World” has to offer. Sin City has come a long way from simply being a place to try your luck in the casinos or partake in a $5 all-you-can-eat buffet.

Entertainment options range from world-class shows to high-end foodie tours to ziplining down Fremont Street, reports assistant editor Greg Coates in this week’s digital edition of Travel Courier.

Las Vegas is regularly reinventing itself.

In fact, more than US$8 billion is being invested into new attractions, experiences and refreshed amenities across the destination over the next several years.

And the results are impressive, with Vegas attracting more than 42 million visitors in 2015 alone.

A group of Canadian travel agents recently got a good taste of Las Vegas during the LVCVA’s #VegasUnwrapped MegaFAM, held in conjunction with WestJet.

Along with site inspections, agents got to experience a Cirque du Soleil show – one of eight available in the city, skate high above The Strip at The Cosmopolitan, spend a night (and closing reception) on Fremont Street and take part in a scavenger hunt, which included a chance to test their nerves on rides high up above The Strip at the Stratosphere.
