Flights And Sights

Flying To Las Vegas With American Airlines

Experience the excitement of Sin City when you take an American Airlines flight to Las Vegas. Shop at the Roman-style Forum, see the bright neon lights at night, and be dazzled by the acrobats of Cirque du Soleil when you fly to Las Vegas with American Airlines.

Catch the magic of Cirque du Soleil

The troupe performs several ongoing acts in various casinos, so your odds are good. Try to see either the abstract, water-centric O at the Bellagio or the dramatic, story-based KÀ at the MGM Grand.

Shop the Forum in Caesars Palace

Of all the theme hotels, Caesars hits the highest highs with its centurions and gladiators, mock-Roman pillars and Forum Shops. You'll walk under a painted sky that mimics the shifting times of day as you shop for high-end goods (or just browse and daydream) at Fendi, Gucci, Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Valentino.

Cruise the Strip at night

Amid all the flashing and neon-lit signage, look for the more creative displays: the powerful lights emanating from the mysterious black pyramid of the Luxor; the water fountain choreography in front of the Bellagio and the volcanic eruption at the Mirage.

Enjoy family-friendly attractions, such as the rollercoaster in New York-New York Hotel & Casino

Circus Circus, with its amusement park and circus acts—complete with trapeze artists flying overhead—caters most directly to kids. Young ones (and the young at heart) should opt for a gondola ride through the Venetian's "canals."

Pamper yourself at a hotel spa and a fine restaurant

We like the Bathhouse Spa at Mandalay Bay and the Spa at Encore Las Vegas—huge, marble-filled destinations with saunas, treatments and baths. Later, fully relaxed, eat like royalty anywhere across town, but try Alizé, on the top floor of the Palms, for staggering city views and an elegant menu.

More Things to Do in Las Vegas

Follow American Airlines off the beaten path to discover more great things to do in Las Vegas. Move off the Strip to see the bright lights of Fremont Street, visit the mighty Hoover Dam, and ascend to the top of the Stratosphere for city views and thrill rides. American will be with you every step of the way.

Watch the Fremont Street Experience for neon-lit fun off the Strip

Downtown's hotel blocks are linked by a brick promenade, underneath a giant overhead projection screen, where thematic sound-and-light shows play on the hour. The open-air Neon Museum, which consists more than 150 vintage salvaged signs, runs along Fremont and offers a bit of old Vegas history.

Gawk at the views from atop the Stratosphere Hotel

From a deck around 1,000 feet up, you get a picture-postcard panorama of the city and beyond. For an adrenaline rush, choose from vertiginous thrill rides that catapult you out from the hotel or send you plummeting in a controlled freefall 108 floors below.

Hit the Imperial Palace

A small hotel-casino on The Strip that sometimes gets overshadowed by its big-time neighbors. This operation features a quirky antique automobile collection in its parking garage, with nearly 300 classic cars—they're available for sale.

Witness hydroelectric power at Hoover Dam

Head out to this giant wall that blocks up the Colorado River and tour the Art Deco generator room and the bridge for requisite views of the dam's water flow. Get out on the water on jet skis or a boat in Lake Mead, the deep blue reservoir created by the dam.

Golf in desert oases

A few hotels have their own offerings, but the Arnold Palmer-designed courses at Angel Park Golf Club might just provide the best links experience in the area. The rates are reasonable and there are two 18-hole course options. The striped hills of Red Rock Canyon serve as the perfect backdrop.
