Sin City is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world with more than 30 million visitors arriving last year. People head to Vegas for the gambling, entertainment, fine dining, and nightlife.
And now visiting Vegas is set to be easier than ever for U.S. travelers as two budget airlines are adding new nonstop routes this winter.
Both airlines will be expanding their operations to Las Vegas’ Harry Reid International Airport and offer more affordable options for budget travelers. Here are the routes you need to know about:
Avelo Airlines has inaugurated its sixth U.S. base at Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport.
This week, the airline has launched three new routes to Las Vegas and expanded another. Two more routes are set to begin in mid-September and early-October.
The 6 routes are:
Flights from Bend/Redmond in Oregon commenced on September 7, with twice-weekly service on Thursdays and Sundays.
Flights from Sonoma/Santa Rosa in California doubled on September 8. Avelo will now fly to Las Vegas four days a week on Sunday, Monday, Thursday and Friday.
Flights from Brownsville in Texas commenced on September 8. This route will operate twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays.
Flights from Eureka/Arcata in California commenced on September 8 with twice-weekly services on Mondays and Fridays.
Flights from Dubuque in Iowa will commence on September 13. This route will offer twice-weekly services on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Flights from Portland/Salem in Oregon will commence on October 5. This will also be a twice-weekly service on Thursdays and Sundays.
Avelo isn’t the only airline to launch new Las Vegas routes for travelers on a budget.
Breeze Airlines has also added two new flights to Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport. Both routes began this week.
The first will leave from Raleigh-Durham in North Carolina. This route will offer direct flights three times a week.
The second will be a daily one-stop flight from Tampa.
Why Visit Las Vegas?
There are many great reasons to visit Las Vegas. It can be a relatively affordable vacation destination if you want it to be, with a range of hotels to suit all budgets. The dining can also be affordable meaning that provided you don’t break the bank in the casinos you don’t have to spend a fortune.
Many people think of casinos, parties, and nightclubs when they think of Vegas. Las Vegas is the gambling capital of the world, after all. And it’s definitely a great place to let your hair down and enjoy a drink or three.
But you can have a great time in Vegas without ever setting foot into a casino. And it’s still a great place to visit if partying isn’t your idea of fun. If you head out of the city you’ll find an amazing place to explore the great outdoors.
Red Rock Canyon is only about 20 minutes away and Lake Mead is only about an hour outside of the city. Ideal for hiking and exploration.
If you want to take a really exciting road trip then The Grand Canyon is about 5 hours away by car making it close enough to explore in just one day.
A lot of people also don’t realize that Las Vegas also boasts some seriously entertaining museums. These include the Mob Museum and the National Atomic Testing Museum.
Las Vegas will never be a center of culture, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great and fun places to expand your mind whilst you’re spending time in Sin City.
