Las Vegas is not just about gambling. And it’s not just for people over 21. Las Vegas is for absolutely everyone, offering a whole world of wonders jam-packed on to one grand and glamorous street—Las Vegas Boulevard.

Animal Habitats

Stop by the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage and observe not only dolphins, but >kwlink 15975>lions, llamas, cheetahs and more! For more feline fun, check out MGM Grand’s lion habitat. The Flamingo Hotel offers…you guessed it, flamingos! And last but certainly not least, head over to Mandalay Bay and experience an aquatic adventure like no other. You’ll see sharks, exotic fish and a 300-pound sea turtle!


Museums and Exhibitions

Madame Tussaud’s Interactive Wax Attraction is sure to leave you star struck. You can hug and pose for pictures with real-looking wax replicas of celebrities from both yesterday and today. You’ll find actors like Hugh Jackman, Brad and Angelina, and Cameron Diaz; athletes like Babe Ruth, Shaq and Tiger Woods; entertainers like Elvis, the Blue Man Group and Siegfried and Roy; and political figures like Abraham Lincoln, Princess Diana and Barack Obama!

If you’ve got a strong stomach, then check out the Bodies Exhibit at Luxor. You’ll see everything beneath the skin of 13 preserved bodies, along with over 250 individual body parts!


Shopping

The Las Vegas Strip is definitely equipped for shoppers. If you’re a brand name shopper and you’re willing to dish out a few hundred dollars for the perfect shoes or handbag, then head over to Caesar’s Palace or the Venetian Hotel. There you’ll find the hottest names in clothing and accessories—everything from Brighton, Coach and Louis Vuitton to Marc Jacobs, Gianni Versace and Dolce & Gabbana.

If you’re more of a thrifty shopper, no problem! Check out the Miracle Mile Shops in Planet Hollywood Hotel, the Fashion Show Mall located behind Treasure Island, or head off the strip to one of the many outlet malls! Also check out some of the Strips unique shops like the four storey M&M and Coca-Cola stores.


The Bottom Line

If you and your family don’t travel often, then Las Vegas is the perfect vacation destination for you. You’ll find a replica of nearly every amazing thing about the world on the strip. It’s a one-stop-shop, as they say, for those who want to experience the world in one day.

    Heya! It's a real story... So read it carefully. IT'S 'BOUT GHOSTS!!!! Once a man went to Goa, India as a tourist. He booked a room in a hotel. The hotel manager told him that the next room to the one which he had booked was creepy. He warned him not to ever peek into the room through the keyhole or by any other means. It's a common human nature that we humans tend to do what we are told not to do. So, the man could not resist seeing into the room. He went to his room and slept. He woke up after about 2 hours and went to that creepy room! He peeped into the room through the keyhole. He could see nothing but a bed and a sofa set and all those common household items. He went away. The next day he again peeped though the keyhole. This time he could see a woman wrapped up in a white sari leaning on the bed with her face hidden. He could hear her crying. He went away cuz he was scared. The next day we again went to peep into the room. This time he could see no woman crying. Suddenly someone tapped at his shoulder from behind. He turned back to see who it was but there was no one. He again peeped through the keyhole. This time all he could see was red. He could see nothing but the color ###. ## was just red. He could not understand anything and went away. He went to the hotel manager and asked him what the reason behind it was. The manager told him that once a couple had last booked that room. The woman died during their stay at the hotel and the man just went away. Since then the woman had been there haunting anyone who dares to enter the room. The manager added that the woman's spirit had red eyes! NOW DO YOU UNDERSTAND?!!!!! It was the spirit's eyes!!! The man could see her red eyes in the keyhole!!!!! The spirit was looking at him but he did not notice!!! WOAH!!!
