Canadians, apparently, can’t wait to get travelling again. And Las Vegas is at the top of their destination wish list. That’s of course no surprise. It’s not that long a flight for most Canadians. It’s warm. For the luxury traveler, there’s no better place to go blow off steam – casinos, food experiences, shows, golf. There are higher octane things to do like Grand Canyon helicopter tours and hot air balloon rides. What about driving enormous bulldozers? Or driving a fast car on a racetrack?
Trip Advisor lists the more popular ones here. And it’s tough to list the most luxurious accommodations. The SLS Las Vegas, Bellagio, Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, Waldorf Estoria at Las Vegas, Nobu Hotel Las Vegas, go down the list.
