Flights to Paradise
Essentially a suburb of the world famous Las Vegas, Paradise is probably one of the world’s most visited yet least known destinations! This major suburb of Vegas is actually home to the majority of the world-famous Strip (Las Vegas Boulevard) and holds such famous mega resort hotels as the MGM Grand and Caesars Palace.
Getting a flight to Paradise is very easy as Las Vegas’ international airport, McCarran International Airport (airport code: LAS) is actually situated within Paradise. There are several 1-stop flights to Paradise available from Johannesburg, including one with British Airways that stops in London. Delta Airlines makes its one connection in Atlanta, while Virgin Atlantic stops in London, but then again in San Francisco for its flight to Paradise. Lufthansa and British Midland are two other airline options.

The Tourist Attractions in Paradise:
What many tourists don’t realise when visiting Las Vegas is that they’re actually spending the majority of their visit in Paradise! Situated just south of the city of Las Vegas, Paradise is a major suburb of the city that’s home to not only the international airport, but most of the famous Las Vegas Strip. If you travel to Vegas and only stay on the Strip the chances are you may not actually venture into Las Vegas at all, but spend your entire holiday in Paradise!
While Las Vegas itself has its increasingly popular downtown area, Paradise is considered to be the real hub of the Entertainment Capital of the World. For the purpose of this guide, we’ll include the whole of the Las Vegas Strip as part of Paradise.
Las Vegas Strip
When you think of Las Vegas you generally think of the Strip, one of the world’s most famous roads, Las Vegas Boulevard. The Strip really is quite surreal with its mammoth hotels and over the top architecture, but it’s a place that all travelers should experience at least once in their lives! Visiting numerous hotels may not sound like a lot of fun, but it is on the Strip! Some of the top attractions include the following:
While not nearly as impressive from the outside as some of its neighbours, Bellagio is one of the top tourist attractions in Paradise because of the amazing water fountains that dance to music at the front of the hotel. Movie fans will also know that the Bellagio featured heavily in the film Ocean’s Eleven.
Directly opposite Bellagio is Paris, Las Vegas, which includes a scaled down version of the Eiffel Tower that visitors can ascend for some great views over the Strip.
New York New York
Brooklyn Bridge and the rest of the New York skyline provide the backdrop to a thrilling roller coaster ride at this Las Vegas Boulevard hotel.
Who would have thought you could come to Paradise and visit a Lion Habitat?! The Lion Habitat at the MGM Grand is a popular attraction, as are the white tigers at The Mirage, which is also home to an erupting volcano!
When Should You Visit?:
Paradise is a great place to visit throughout the year if you enjoy warm to hot temperatures and little in the way of rainfall. Summers can actually get a little too hot for some visitors, peaking with average highs of 40C in the hottest month, July, and staying in the 30’s right through from May to September. Spring and autumn are very pleasant as temperatures aren’t quite so high. Even in December and January (the coldest months) you’ll still get average highs of 14C.
