7 Best Staycation Spots to Check Out in Las Vegas
More than 41 million tourists visit Las Vegas every year. With so many tourists, an abundance of hotels and short-term rentals is a necessity; the locals like to get away for the occasional staycation too. Las Vegas offers vacation rentals to fit any preference.
The 20 largest hotels in the world own properties in Las Vegas, many of which are on the strip. But some travelers prefer an alternative lodging that offers a break from the bright lights. Popular vacation rental companies have made finding an option to the traditional hotel stay — from RV rentals to guest cottage and full home rentals — easier than ever.
Why Do Travelers Love Las Vegas?
With over 150 casinos, Las Vegas is synonymous with gambling. It’s no secret that the lure of money attracts travelers to Las Vegas. But there are a plethora of other activities besides gambling to enjoy in Las Vegas.
Staying in the right rental can make you feel at home after a day of sightseeing adventures. But with so many to choose from, how do you decide?
