This is a fantastic opportunity to combine two of the best short break destinations in the world; all in one incredible holiday. You’ll start in the bright lights of Las Vegas, or sin city as it is now known by many before heading to New Orleans, a city famous for its jazz, the extravagant carnivals and parades, and the ‘Big Easy’ lifestyle!
Famous for its magnificent hotels, household names like The Mirage, Bellagio, and Venetian, there are fountains, attractions and curiosities galore to explore. Try your luck at the blackjack or roulette tables in the opulent surroundings of a Las Vegas casino or enjoy the world class entertainment of a Las Vegas show. The city is the starting point for lots of great day trips, there are great combinations to choose from. Visit the Grand Canyon, see it from above by helicopter if you can. Red Rock Canyon, not far from Vegas, has plenty of adventure activities for outdoor lovers.
The atmospheric French Quarter, of New Orleans is filled with the strains of jazz and blues echoing through the streets. Bourbon Street, famous for the annual Mardi Gras, comes to life at night as it plays host to a giant street party throbbing with music, people and excellent restaurants; the party atmosphere fuelled by the bars that stay open all night.
In addition to all the partying, New Orleans has plenty of serious sightseeing options to offer. Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve is a great place to experience ‘bayou life’ in Louisiana. It offers a variety of activities, including bayou cruises from the Acadian Cultural Centre and paddlewheel boat trips from New Orleans to the historic Chalmette Battlefield sites.
Las Vegas-The Chandelier Bar in the Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas is a multi-story visual spectacle housing three unique bar experiences; The Chandelier provides a bit of playground, art exhibit and cocktail haven all at once.
New Orleans-As Bourbon Street has filled with frat-boy-style antics, the citys music scene has shifted to Frenchmen Street in the Faubourg Marigny, a historic neighborhood within walking distance of the Quarter. Clubs like DBA, Snug Harbor, and The Blue Nile draw renowned jazz bands and solo performers.
