These 2 Budget Airlines Are Adding New Nonstop Routes To This Popular Destination

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.
