Destination Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a city in the state of Nevada, in the southwestern United States. It is located 380 kilometres east of Los Angeles and attracts millions of visitors every year. It is located in the middle of the desert and, as a gambling and entertainment paradise, has provided the backdrop for numerous Hollywood movies. Luxurious hotels, endless casinos, and performances by big stars – that’s Las Vegas in a nutshell.

In addition to all the entertainment it offers, Las Vegas is also an ideal destination for nature lovers and hikers. It is an excellent starting point for a visit to the beautiful national parks in the area, such as Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. The large number of conferences in Las Vegas also makes it an important destination for business travellers.
