Jaw-drop­ping land­scapes Gor­geous spots to ’Gram Foodie finds to die for

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - GET INTO IT -

If there’s one thing you bring to the ‘en­ter­tain­ment cap­i­tal of the world’, it’s great ex­pec­ta­tions – and let me tell you, Las Ve­gas sure sur­passes them. High­lights in­clude epic en­ter­tain­ment; award-win­ning restau­rants run by cel­e­brated chefs; first-class shop­ping fea­tur­ing the world’s most lux­u­ri­ous brands; in­no­va­tive, high-end spa re­sorts; and se­ri­ously im­pres­sive ho­tels.

And it looks pretty damn good, too. Sit­u­ated in the breath­tak­ing Mo­jave Desert, Las Ve­gas is sur­rounded by stun­ning moun­tain views and end­less blue skies un­like any­thing you’ve ever seen be­fore.

To truly ap­pre­ci­ate the city’s beauty, you need to see it from up high. The best way to do that is on the world’s tallest ob­ser­va­tion wheel, aka the High Roller. Soar­ing 167 me­tres above the ground, it of­fers a sweep­ing view of the Las Ve­gas val­ley and main strip. Have your cam­era ready as the views are un­for­get­table.

If you’re into heights and love a good laugh, the iconic SlotZilla zip line in down­town Las Ve­gas guar­an­tees good times. You’ll fly Bat­man-style down Fre­mont Street and en­joy an amaz­ing view while you’re at it. Bucket list? Tick!

One thing to know about this bustling city is that it’s full of hid­den gems. You’ll be sur­prised by the num­ber of epic eater­ies and shop­ping op­por­tu­ni­ties. The Aria Re­sort & Casino is a foodie par­adise, with ev­ery­thing from fine din­ing to New York-style pizza. So yum! If you’re ve­gan (like I am), the En­core and Wynn ho­tels are the ul­ti­mate, with ev­ery restau­rant of­fer­ing ve­gan op­tions – and the ho­tels them­selves are gor­geous, too.
