Get Ready for Your Las Vegas Trip

One of the best ways to guarantee a hassle free vacation is by reading this Las Vegas practical information guide. Las Vegas is a major resort city in the United States. It's sometimes referred to as Sin City because it's renowned for gambling, night clubs, shopping and fine dining. The city calls itself the entertainment capital of the world, and that's no exaggeration.

Visa Requirements

Applying for a US Visa in order to visit Las Vegas is a lengthy process that takes several weeks. If you are a British citizen passport holder, a US Visa is no longer required if you intend to stay in the country for no more than 90 days. Your passport should be machine readable or MRP in order to pass the immigration process. Machine readable passports have digital photos. You need to have an MRP in order for you to set foot on the shores of America.

Climate and Time Zone

Las Vegas is on Pacific Standard Time. Its standard time zone is GMT -8:00. Las Vegas is situated in the Mojave Desert and boasts of sunshine all year round. It is hot and dry during the summer and the area experiences mild winters.

The local currency of Las Vegas is the US dollar, divided into 100 cents. It is composed of six bank notes - the 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollar bills. For the coins, it has four pieces as follows: one cent or penny, 5 cents or nickel, 10 cents or dime and 25 cents or quarter.

Dry Heat

If you are not use to being in dry heat do drink lots of water. With an arid climate you dont feel as hot, but when you perspire it evaporates so quickly that you dont know that you were even perspiring at all. Becoming dehydraded on your trip is no fun, and with all the alcohol it can make for a really bad hangover the next morning. So I highly recomend to drink lots of water.

Good shoes are key. I know it's important to look great while on vacation, but remember what it feels like for your feet to be in agony... which is precisely what happened to me my first trip to Vegas. If you MUST wear sandals (and I do!), bring some with arch support. Birks are good. (Don't forget sunscreen on the tops of your feet!) Bring sneakers and peds if you'll be doing a lot of Strip walking, your feet will thank you.
