Las Vegas Attractions In A Day

Las Vegas Famous Welcome Sign

If you are one of the more than 40,000,000 people expected to visit Las Vegas this year, you will find useful information in my new Kindle book - Las Vegas Attractions In A Day. Like most large metropolitan cities, Las Vegas is not without its problems. But it has sights that are a treat for the eyes and attractions that you won't find anywhere else on earth. It is to your advantage to know which ones to see first in order to make the best use of your time. 

I wrote Las Vegas Attractions In A Day because, as a frequent visitor to Vegas, I am amazed when friends and acquaintances return from a first trip to this interesting city having missed seeing much of the "good stuff". I don't want this to happen to you, especially if it is your first trip to Vegas. If you are in town for only a short time and take in most of these attractions, you will have made a decent sight-seeing trip to tell your friends and family about.

Although this book will benefit most visitors to Las Vegas (a.k.a. Glitter Gulch, Sin City), it will be especially useful to those who have either never been to Las Vegas before or have simply passed through with little to no opportunity to visit any of the attractions. Consider this book your guided tour. Take a look at the Table of Contents...

Another group that can benefit from this book would be those who have a desire to visit Las Vegas but their chances of ever getting there are slim to none. With over 80 pictures throughout this book, pictures I took (that you won't find elsewhere) during my many visits, you will get a good idea of the sights this city has to offer.

The Las Vegas Strip is about four miles long from the Stratosphere on the north end to Mandalay Bay on the south. The Strip is not a straight line from south to north but takes a slight "dog leg" to the right by the Mirage and LINQ. So the buildings north of the casinos you see below as well as the High Roller Ferris wheel are not visible until you get further down the Strip.

Upper Las Vegas Strip

The recommendations in Las Vegas Attractions In A Day are limited to mostly free attractions on the most popular parts of the Las Vegas Strip and downtown Las Vegas. The attractions omitted on this first pass are either off the Strip, require a fee of some sort or are just not as impressive from a sights-to-see standpoint as others. And a few (casinos which will remain unnamed) are just big fancy "barns" with table games and lots of slots and not much else. Best not waste your time until you've seen the ones worth seeing.

Are you ready for a free preview of the first few chapters? You will find it at
LV Attractions. And you don't need a Kindle to preview it.
