We all know the law. To legally enter a Las Vegas casino, you must be 21 years of age or older.

The show is critically acclaimed and has received multiple Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Costume Design and Best Choreography.

At MGM Grand Resort & Casino, a unique experience awaits you at KA by Cirque de Soleil. You can think of KA as a cross between a circus and a stage show.

Tours are another source of excitement and are a great way to explore the Las Vegas area.

It turns out that Las Vegas is close to two national monuments: the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. With Grand Adventures Tours, you can visit both in one day. Although the tour is a bit pricey (about $150 per person), numerous benefits make it money well spent. the tour is 15 hours long, you’re picked up directly from your hotel, and McDonald’s lunch and breakfast are included in your ticket. You’ll also get plenty of one-on-one attention from your knowledgeable tour guides as you walk along the canyon’s rim, then snap photos alongside Hoover Dam. No more than 10 people are allowed in a tour group, so you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions.

If hiking isn’t your style, there are many other types of tours to choose from. You can take a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon; definitely exciting but more expensive and much shorter than a tour with Grand Adventures. If you don’t like a lot of walking, there are even jeep tours that will take you through the Canyon without a problem.
