I’ve been to “Vegas” several times, both in a pure leisure capacity, as a travel journalist and once as a creative advisor during a CES trade show. Nevada has a lot more to offer than just Vegas. But there’s no denying this desert city’s allure.
From an amusement perspective, downtown Las Vegas is certainly unparalleled. The insane level of escapism available is just jaw-dropping and an exceptional representation of just how absolutely addicted Americans have become to having every orifice entertained. I’m always about as excited to arrive as I am relieved to leave. Las Vegas is truly a remarkable place that I think should be experienced first-handedly.
