Things are about to get a whole lot hotter as you travel east to the desert city of Las Vegas. Cruise down the Strip, like a total legend in a super-stretch limo. With all this excitement you must be feeling hungry? So treat yourself to an all-you-can eat buffet, yum! For the next course you might like to take in a show or just watch the amazing crowds and neon signs as the glitzy hotels try to outdo each other with spectacular attractions. And if that's not enough you can take a helicopter flight back down the Strip, or gamble the night away in one of the world class casinos. There really is nowhere on Earth quite like Vegas!

For the best views in the park hike to the famous Angels Landing which offers 360 degrees of the entire park.

For close up views you'll have plenty of time to take advantage of the park's incredible system of trails.
