    Party like the third in line to the throne and head to Las Vegas for a completely OTT long weekend you won’t forget (or remember). As brash and loud as Vegas is, it’s fun and there’s something for everyone in the neon city that never sleeps…

    We stayed at:

    The Bellagio hotel, with its famous dancing water fountains, is arguably one of the most iconic hotels on the strip. Ready to cater to your every whim 24/7, night owls need never leave the 3,950 room mega hotel thanks to a host of casinos, clubs and restaurants. After a few frenzied and intoxicating sleepless nights seek recovery at the seriously good house spa or soak up the rays, with frozen margarita in hand, by one of the various pools.

    Our top 3 things to do:

    Premium Outlets:
    Just a 10 minute taxi ride from the strip, fashionistas will find the North Premium Outlet centre where there are impressive savings to be had at the likes of Burberry, Ralph Lauren and Kate Spade amongst others. A trip to the Samonsite suitcase store may also be required.

    Caesar’s Palace shops:
    After snapping up some bargains, splurge in style at the luxe Forum shopping centre at Caesar’s Palace. With 160 boutiques and high-end stores including famous designers like Versace, Dolce and Gabbana and Louis Vuitton next to popular favorites like H&M and Nike, you’ll work up quite the appetite so head to The Palm restaurant which does the best ever burgers.

    Maverick Helicopter:
    Before you lose all your bucks make sure you take a 45 minute flight in a state of the art Maverick helicopter to the breath-taking Grand Canyon. Flying over the Hoover Dam before ascending into the Canyon’s rim for a champagne picnic is a once in a lifetime must.

    Let’s do it:
    Virgin Atlantic flys direct from London Gatwick.
