With its luxurious hotels, legendary casinos and world-class entertainment, Las Vegas is a shimmering oasis of bright lights and brashness in the heart of the Nevada desert. And, while it's not for everyone, a stay in 'Sin City' is one that will certainly live long in the memory. Of course, if Vegas isn't your thing, there's no need to rule out the rest of Nevada, where you'll find everything from spectacular mountain ranges to great river valleys.
Indeed, away from the cities, Nevada is mostly an uninhabited wilderness, where must-see attractions include the Great Basin National Park and the 'loneliest road in America', which passes by Wheeler Peak. Of course, those who choose a stay in Vegas will also be perfectly places for exploring the iconic Grand Canyon, across the state border in Arizona.
