Las Vegas is one of those places everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. Go for a city break, combine with a beach holiday or stop off on a road trip. Here are five ways to visit Las Vegas!


From stag parties to honeymoons, road trips to shopping breaks, Vegas caters for everyone. Some people go to gamble, many for the endless entertainment, while others see it as a gateway to visiting the Grand Canyon. I have teamed up with American Sky to show you that no matter what type of Vegas visitor you are, they have a holiday to suit you. How will you visit Las Vegas?


City Breaks:

Las Vegas & New York, 7 Nights, Flights & Hotels, €959!

 New York and Las Vegas are two of America’s most iconic cities. From shows to shopping, culture to casinos – they have it all. Zipline the full length of Fremont Street in Vegas, take in a world class show and make sure you take a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon. You will then fly to New York for three nights. Spend the afternoon in Central Park, visit the poignant 9/11 museum at the World Trade Centre, take in the views from the Top of the Rock and don’t miss Times Square at night time.

This amazing trip includes a four-night stay at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas and a three-night stay in the ROW hotel, New York. Both hotels are ideally located to explore all the highlights, but if you want to choose alternative accommodation, just talk to the team in American Sky and they will match hotels to suit your requirements.

You will then fly to Las Vegas for three nights before flying to Los Angeles for your final few days. Choose to stay in Hollywood or chill out in Santa Monica.

Our California Road Trip

California road trip

We enjoyed a seventeen day California road trip travelling on the Pacific Coast Highway from San Francisco to San Diego. I have combined all my highlights, trips and destination guides in this post. I hope you enjoy it!

The Pacific Coast Highway is one of the world’s most iconic road trips and once you drive it you will know why. Not only is the drive itself spectacular, but to see so many dream destinations on one trip, is pretty cool too. We visited San Francisco, Monterrey, Cambria, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica and Los Angeles before chilling out on the beach in San Diego for our last few days. Needless to say there were so many highlights and so many tips and tricks that I couldn’t possibly put them all in one post, but check out my short video here and read all my posts below.

Learn all about biking the bridge in San Francisco and the not so pretty Fishermans Wharf. Find out the best places to stop on route and the best things to do with kids in California. I also have a post on tips for driving the Pacific Coast Highway to make the most out of your holiday.
