Las Vegas is not an ordinary city. Even hotels by themselves may be entertainment. Creatures from the wild have taken up residence at four Las Vegas hotels. The Mirage has a dolphin habitat and tigers, lions, panthers, and an elephant belonging to illusionists Siegfried and Roy. There are more lions in the habitat at MGM Grand. The Flamingo Las Vegas features flamingos, penguins, swans, turtles, and fish in its wildlife habitat. The Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay exhibits sharks, sea predators, and other exotic creatures.
Located 34 miles south of Las Vegas on Interstate 15, Jean has two casinos: Nevada Landing and the Gold Strike. They are excellent breakfast stops before heading to the historic mining town of Goodsprings, specifically the town's rustic Pioneer Saloon. The bar is a mini-museum detailing Goodspring's boom and bust days. The pressed-tin walls have bullet holes, and the floors are rough wooden planks. The saloon is famous as the site where actor Clark Gable waited for word about his wife, Carole Lombard, whose plane crashed in the mountains nearby in 1942. For those interested in the rigors of life in the Nevada desert, the town's cemetery has its own story on the headstones.
To be on Nevada vacation and not to see Grand Canyon, can it be true? Definitely, NO. Then come and see. Experience standing on top of a plateau and peer downward thousands of feet! View the pristine and stunning rugged mountains, mesas and deep gorges. Welcome to Grand Canyon West! There are no crowds and no guardrails; only views as far as the eye can see! When you are there you will be tempted into ballooning. If you are brave, go, do not miss the chance to see Grand Canyon from the bird's-eye-view.
