I am planning to visit Las Vegas in May for 15 days. Any suggestions about the places to cover in 15 days?

Wow, 15 days in Vegas is a LOT of time in Vegas. :)

The longest itinerary on the WhyGo Las Vegas site is for 5 days in Las Vegas, but that should get you started. After that, there are all kinds of great options for day trips from Las Vegas, including the Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Red Rock Canyon, etc. Here's a list of the National Parks near Las Vegas, too.

Have fun. :)

Rent a car. there are bus trips to those locations, but they tend to be both expensive and time consuming. you spend 6 hours being tirelessly lectured by a bus driver, have four hours on top of the south rim, then back you go! I suspect the other bus trips are similar.

Renting a car isn't expensive :?:

Since you have so much time I'd suggest that you rent a car and take some of the drives that we took when we were there last March. We spent a couple days at Zion National Park in Utah. Beautiful scenery and hiking. I'd love to go back. We also took some day trips including Hoover Dam. We also had a good time going over to the Mojave Desert in California, stopping off in little towns like Baker (home of the world's largest thermometer and the UFO museum). We then drove across to Kelso, CA. Kelso was a major rail hub in World War II. Though there is not much there now, it's a neat place. You can also climb the Kelso Dunes. Vegas is a good base of operations for lots of little 1-3 day trips. Have a great time!

Las Vegas is the most popular place as a major shopping, gambling and vacation destination in the world that attracts a lot of tourists every year. It hard to say what makes Las Vegas so popular but its casinos, nightclubs, restaurants, bars or lounges are world famous. You can also visit some other places like Fountains at Bellagio, Gondola Rides at the Venetian, Venetian Hotel, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat, Shark Reef, Fremont Street and many more.

That's a realllllly long time to be in Vegas! I'd suggest renting a car as well. It's not too expensive as long as you rent the economy options and don't rent at the airport - there are extra fees associated with airport rental locations. Also, food is pretty expensive on the strip. With a car, you can head to off-strip eateries.

In Vegas, definitely attend at least 1 pool party, they are my favorite part!

I agree with the poster who suggested Zion. It is absolutely beautiful, and you can camp for cheap.

Well, I dont think 15 days is that long of a time. We went for 8 days and of that we remember about 3. It was like going into a time warp.

So give vegas a week, then see the surrounding area. The grand canyon is great. Also, Lake Mead is there. You will find plenty to do fi you look around.
