From its world-famous zoo and aquarium to its bountiful
beaches, San Diego's vibrant and exciting lifestyle has plenty
to offer visitors and their whole families. It's the kind of
city where every day is a beach day, and where everyone is busy
having as much fun as possible. A relaxed atmosphere pervades
the city, probably one of the reasons that draw more than 30
million visitors a year to San Diego. Given the beautiful weather
and outdoor activities abound, San Diego is probably one of
the most pedestrian friendly cities in America. Families walk,
skate, and bike their way to over 70 miles of beaches or any
one of San Diego's numerous attractions.
San Diego's natural beauty is one of the city's greatest attractions.
An officially designated 52-mile long Scenic Drive brings visitors
through the city and its many neighborhoods. From the Harbor
Islands through Old Town and Balboa Park all the way to La Jolla,
the Scenic Drive is a great way to see all of the city's beautiful
districts and neighborhoods.
Balboa Park itself is the 1,200 acre home to
the world-famous Zoo and museums. This park is the cultural
center of the city. The Rose Garden has more than 2,000 rosebushes,
and the entire park is really one giant botanical garden full
of beautiful flowers and trees. The Zoo, one of the best in
the world, holds nearly 4,000 animals representing more than
800 species. The animal habitats are designed to replicate each
animal's original ecosystem as closely as possible, down to
the type of grass used. Birds, gorillas, tigers, bears, hippos
and other animals have helped make this one of the most admired
zoos in the world. In addition to the zoo, Balboa Park is home
to over a dozen museums dedicated to history, science, art,
cars, railroads, mankind, and of course, San Diego itself.
Ever since gold was discovered at Sutter's Mill in 1848, visitors
from all over the world have flocked to San Francisco. Today,
it's still possible to find gold in the "City on the Bay"
in its numerous restaurants, beautiful neighborhoods, and world-class
cultural attractions. San Francisco hosts a number of national
landmarks, from the famous Telegraph Hill and old-fashioned
trolley cars to the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, that help
make any trip special.
San Francisco Bay was the source of the city's livelihood for
a very long time, and it remains the key to the city to this
day. The Golden Gate Bridge, a San Francisco icon, is 1.7 miles
long and frames the Bay. Located around the Bay are several
remarkable beaches and parks. Golden Gate Park contains several
museums, gardens, and open spaces. The Presidio, a 200 year
old Spanish Fort, is also a well-known Bay Area attraction.
Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39 are national landmarks, offering
breathtaking views, fine restaurants and great shopping. Steinhart
Aquarium is the oldest municipal aquarium in America, featuring
a wide selection of creatures from both the Bay and the Pacific
Ocean. Of course, no tour of the Bay would be complete without
mentioning Alcatraz, America's most famous prison, and now San
Francisco's number one tourist attraction.
Los Angeles is located in Southern California on the
Pacific Coast. This City of Angels was established by the Spaniards
1781. Los Angeles was merely a ranch town when the US appropriated
it from Mexico in 1846 - But by the 20th century the film industry
shone a spotlight on L.A.
The city of 3.5 million sprawls across 467 square miles of desert
basin, mountain canyons, and coastal beaches. If there was one
word to describe Los Angles it would have to be diverse; for
diversity is not only a characteristic of Los Angeles' geography,
but it also describes the approximate 11 million people who
call it home. The largest population of Pacific Islanders in
the nation lives here, as well as the world's third-largest
Hispanic population. Los Angeles is home to people from over
140 countries speaking 96 different languages.
Attractions in this city are numerous and varied.
There are more than 2,000 museums, galleries, theaters and other
attractions in Los Angeles. Los Angeles features itself as a
great hostess providing its visitors with activities such as
museums, beaches, restaurants, performing arts, people watching
and sports. The Mann's Chinese Theater provides for an interesting
outing, while Rodeo Drive showcases the latest trends. No matter
where you travel in the Los Angeles area, there's something
exciting to do or see The Los Angeles area also features dozens
of annual events, from parades, to sporting meets to festivals.
Los Angeles has drawn the attention of people from all over
the US and the world, making it the entertainment capitol of
the world. L.A. has not only played a major role in the development
of television, music, fashion and art, but it has also been
a central figure in creating a diverse center of pop and traditional
The water show in front of the Bellagio; St. Mark's Place and
the canals within the Venetian; the Eiffel Tower replica at
Paris Las Vegas; the lion habitat at MGM Grand; nightly volcano
eruptions at the Mirage; the Luxor pyramid; the Roman streetscape
at the Forum Shops in Caesars Palace; the Mardi Gras-style Show
in the Sky at Rio's Masquerade Village; the view from the observation
deck at the Stratosphere Tower; the Fremont Street Experience.
This is Las Vegas!
Historically, Fremont Street is where it all began, from
a small railroad stop at the turn of the century to one of
the brightest streets in the world. For decades, Fremont Street
was one of the best places to cruise in a convertible car
but now the street has been closed off to traffic and it is
a pedestrian paradise lined with kiosks, souvenir shops and,
of course, many, many casinos.
Because so much is concentrated on one street, it is easier to understand the layout of the city if you break the Strip into sections. The South Strip begins near McCarran International Airport, extends north to Harmon Avenue and includes the major intersection where the Strip meets Tropicana Avenue. The Central Strip runs from Harmon north to Spring Mountain Road and includes the busy Flamingo Road intersection. The North Strip goes from Spring Mountain to just north of Sahara Avenue
Downtown is located a few miles north of the northern end
of the Strip. There the casinos are smaller, older and less
lavish, but the area has its own theme attraction, the outdoor
light show known as the Fremont Street Experience.
If you want to see what there is to do away from the casinos
and bright lights, take a panoramic peek at nearby recreational
areas such as the spectacular Red Rock Canyon National Conservation
Area, Mt. Charleston and the quaint little town of Boulder
City, the only town in the state of Nevada where gambling
City residents and visitors alike say there is no place like
Las Vegas, Nevada anywhere else in the world!
