All fabulous shows and performers that remind people that Las Vegas really is an entertainment capital. Elvis-A-Rama and the Liberace Museum pay tribute to two of the flashiest performers Las Vegas has ever seen. Both feature large collections of memorabilia from their namesakes.

The wedding chapel culture is also very prominent in Las Vegas. Every hotel has a wedding chapel, and there are many lone chapels besides. A Little White Chapel is the quintessential Las Vegas wedding chapel. It is open 24 hours and features a drive-up window for your convenience.

The Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas encapsulates the true Vegas experience. It’s a huge, flashy five block pedestrian mall. Even though it is the sight of a daily party, it gets even flashier for holidays. It is also the site of the annual Mardi Gras celebration held in Las Vegas to celebrate the end of Lent. Las Vegas also holds very patriotic, and very large, Independence Day celebrations every year. It is also fast becoming the place to be to party on New Year’s Eve. The party culture is very prominent in Las Vegas.

With a nod to its Western heritage, Las Vegas is the place where cowboys and cowgirls annually converge for the biggest rodeo event: The Dodge National Circuit Finals. There’s plenty of bronc bustin’ and bull ridin’ excitement at this huge spectacle. Las Vegas also tips its hat to its surprisingly religious beginnings. A tour of the Old Mormon Fort provides a look at the humble, missionary beginnings of “Sin City.”
