Few places do luxury lodgings like Las Vegas. In fact, Vegas trails just behind New York City for having the second-highest number of top-tier hotels in the country. This should come as no surprise given the 40 million visitors that stay in Sin City every year. But even the most seasoned travelers are bound to have questions, such as whether it is better to book at an independent or chain hotel, if (and how much) to tip staff and what rooms are best?
Gambling is an integral part of the Las Vegas experience. You wouldn’t go to New York and not visit the Empire State Building. You wouldn’t travel all the way to Memphis and not sample the barbeque. You wouldn’t tour Maui and avoid the beach. The gaming is what made Las Vegas the entertainment capital of the world. You don’t have to be a high roller to enjoy shooting some dice or playing a couple of hands. Read on for some best practices when gambling in Las Vegas.

Previously, we described our Las Vegas and Henderson terminals. Here, you will learn about the top notch service you can expect from the moment you're picked up by one of our free shuttles to be transported to our South Rim or Kahului terminals. Both terminals offer a variety of conveniences for your comfort and enjoyment before departure.
At Maverick Helicopters, we offer VIP treatment from start to finish for all our guests. Every tour flying out of Las Vegas or Henderson begins at one of our state-of-the-art terminals. Just as our helicopter sightseeing tours provide you with fabulous views of the Las Vegas Strip, Hoover Dam or the Grand Canyon in comfort and style, our goal is deliver that same experience before you even take off. We offer a range of amenities at each of our terminals for your flying pleasure.
This is no heavyweight championship bout, but it is Las Vegas, so it's easy to imagine the face-off. In one corner, you have the city's preeminent helicopter tour company, Maverick Helicopters, offering the most exhilarating tours of the Strip in luxurious "limousines in the sky." In the other corner, you have the Lip Smacking Foodie Tour company, offering visits to some of the city's most renowned restaurants, sparing visitors the hassle of making reservations and waiting in line. Fortunately, the two companies’ new joint tour means you won’t have to pick just one of these world-class experiences during your Vegas vacation.
2016 has not been a kind year. We lost a slew of pop culture icons, including rock gods Prince and David Bowie. Hurricane Matthew nearly took out the South East and you couldn't turn on the television without seeing political mudslinging. This makes this New Year's Eve transition from 2016 to 2017 a time to celebrate the year's finality as well as hope for a happy 2017.
This is cause for raucous revelry, and there's no place better for that than the Entertainment Capital of the World! Here's a quick rundown of just some of the most anticipated places to ring in the New Year in Las Vegas this year:
There’s no better way to view the magnificence of the Grand Canyon than by helicopter.
