Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas! Adventure, entertainment and fun is what expects you if your travel destination is the famous Las Vegas. Known as the „Sin City“ the city stands for casinos, shows, neon lights and good restaurants.
The Las Vegas Strip is the pulsing heart beat of the city and within just over four miles long it connects over 30 hotels, one more impressive than the other. Hotels, Casinos and Entertainment go hand in hand in Las Vegas.
The Bellagio is one of the most beautiful Hotels and the experience starts right in front of the building. The famous Water fountains are a spectacle you don’t want to miss. Go find a perch to sit back and watch the show enhanced by music and light, preferably some time around midnight for the most beautiful views. When visiting Las Vegas you might feel like a short trip to Europe’s most beautiful places is included. Take a gondola ride under the Italian sky at the Venetian and discover just a little smaller version of the Eiffel Tower of Paris.
In summer the temperatures in the desert of Nevada climb up to very high degrees and if you need an escape from the bustle of the city, take a day trip to Lake Mead for a cool break by the sea including a quick stop at the iconic Hoover Dam. For the more old-school Vegas feel go to Old Downtown Las Vegas, Fremont Street is where the magic used to happen but its not less of an experience!

Hop on a Cable Car and explore San Francisco!
An exciting mix of sightseeing, great architecture and culinary delights awaits you in the city by the bay. Although the city is in fact pretty small, the streets of San Francisco are extremely hilly so your transportation mode should always be chosen wisely. No matter what transportation mode you choose, make sure to drive or walk through to world’s curviest street, the Lombard street. Slow down your day after and head out to the city’s lungs, Golden Gate Park. After a good picnic on the grass enjoy some of the best attractions the city has to offer right in the park. Visit the de Young museum to see fine art or to just enjoy the view from the museum’s observation deck. For some beautiful flowers stop by the Conservatory Flowers or the San Francisco Botanical Garden. When its time for some afternoon tea just go to the Japanese tea garden and enjoy a quick but calming escape from the city with a Japanese tea ceremony.
Traveling to San Francisco, the one stop you can’t miss is probably the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Most definitely you have seen it on pictures or movies before but the connecting bridge between San Francisco and the rest of Northern California is worth a view from a new perspective. Drive across or stroll over and enjoy great views of the bay and the city skyline. But keep in mind: to cross the whole bridge by foot you would take about 1 to 2 hours. The city by the bay is waiting to be explored by you!

Divide your list of main attractions in skyscrapers, museums, parks and outdoor sites like Statue of Liberty or Times Square. Based on the time of the year, you should plan your day by the weather. If you visit the city in Summer, sunny and warm days are made for lunch in Central Park and an afternoon ride with the Water Taxi, to pass by the Statue of Liberty and take your iconic picture from the boat. If it’s a really hot day, consider escaping the heat stop wise by visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art or the American Museum of National History.
