The forested hills that surround Los Angeles give way to the stark yet beautiful landscapes of the Mojave Desert.

A day at leisure to enjoy the hotel facilities, visit one of the many shopping malls or take in a world-class show. The hotels here are attractions in themselves with elaborate designs and themes, such as the canal complex at The Venetian or the Bellagio lobby ceiling spectacularly adorned with a huge piece of artwork by renowned glass sculptor Dale Chihuly. We recommend a stroll along The Strip at sunset as its dazzling lights come to life; and be sure to see the impressive ‘dancing’ fountains that perform regularly outside the Bellagio Hotel.
