Las Vegas is a truly original city, where the greatest landmarks are all reproductions, and the name of the game is gambling. This neon jungle is, at turns, classy, tacky, cheesy, and sleazy, but it's always entertaining. If there's one sure bet in this town, it's that you'll never be bored.

Las Vegas For Dummies gives you the lowdown on this city, which is fast challenging Orlando as the number-one tourist destination in the U.S. The city has more hotel rooms (over 120,000) than any other, and for sheer spectacle, it's hard to beat this town. You can watch a volcano explode, see a pirate ship sink, stroll by the Arc de Triumph and cross the Brooklyn Bridge - all on the same street. And then you can gamble. This guide will help you plan the best trip imaginable, whether you are

An inexperienced traveler looking for guidance in determining whether to take a trip to Vegas, and how to plan for it An experienced traveler who doesn't have a lot of time to devote to trip planning Any traveler who only has a few days to spend in Las Vegas and needs expert advice on maximizing a minimum of time A traveler who doesn't like big, thick travel guides that list every single hotel, restaurant, or attraction, but instead looks for a book that focuses on the places that will provide the best or most unique experiences

Las Vegas For Dummies is clearly organized and segmented so you won't have to read what came before or after any chapter. You'll uncover tips for

Planning your trip by taking a gander at the Las Vegas weather; special events; and tips for families, seniors, travelers with disabilities, and gay and lesbian travelers Ironing out the details, by considering the use of a travel agent, buying a package deal, or searching for the best airfares Settling into Vegas by exploring some of the neighborhoods and modes of transportation Dining in Las Vegas, from buffets to brunches, the city's top restaurants to its cheapest meals Exploring the city's attractions, entertainment, shopping, and recreational opportunities Living up the Vegas nightlife, from splashy production shows such as Cirque de Soleil to the hottest dance clubs in town

If a city exists that has its heart right on its sleeve, it's Las Vegas. Don't come here looking for culture and self-improvement, but do come here looking for a whale of a good time. You're sure to have it.
