Located in the smoking hot desert, Las Vegas has an allure that not many world destinations can live up to. What pictures do the words "Las Vegas" conjure up in your mind? For me, it is the dream destination. I can live in the lap of luxury, and get involved in the hustle and bustle of casino life and possibly make my dreams of fame and fortune come true.
If you want to play poker, then this is the place to do it. I am still haunted by the magical scenes and wonderful atmosphere of a place like the Bellagio. If you need to give yourself an insight into this place, then why not rent George Clooney and Brad Pitt's classic Ocean's Eleven. Better still, why not the original Rat-Pack version. However, seeing is believing. If you too find your breath taken away by the spectular, you can do no better, than spend a long (and i mean long) weekend in Vegas.
Is Poker and Vegas just for the rich and famous? Hell No! It's time for you to check out the Klondike. This is a tourist hotspot. It may not have the appeal of some of the more famous casinos, but this is somewhere dreams become reality. You can sit at the poker table, soak up the ambience, gamble until your heart is content and not lose your shirt in the process!
If you want to be inspired by the great players, such as, Wynn, Helmuth, Eastgate and Chan then wander down the strip. You will find a host of famous and great names at Caesars, El Cortez, Golden Nugget or the Horseshoe.
You know if you ever go to Vegas, then you are going to have to visit the casinos. Just be careful and do your homework. As an added bonus, many places will offer free drinks to even part-time and low-wager gamblers!
