Las Vegas is certainly the biggest and perhaps the best value in entertainment today. Luxury hotels that once posted rates of $300.00 and more per night are now offering rooms for a third of that price. If you are on a budget, rooms are available in very nice hotels for as little as $30.00 a night.

The hotels in Las Vegas are so big and so elaborate, they are hard to imagine. Hotels with 3000 rooms, waterfalls, circus clowns flying overhead, tigers roaming in their cages, all of this and more are available in Las Vegas. Did you know that 17 of the largest hotels in the United States are located right here?

There is more to Las Vegas than its fabulous hotels. The real attraction in this city of lights is gambling in casinos the size of soccer fields. The downtown hotels provide gamblers the best odds with some casinos paying out 90% of all money taken in.

While your pet will not be welcome on the casino floor, it will certainly be welcome not only in your room, but strolling busy Las Vegas Boulevard, or having lunch at one of the outdoor/patio restaurants as well.

Dining in Las Vegas ranges from free in some hotels to gourmet dining at the top of one of the world famous hotels. Although the hotel dining room may not accommodate your pet, there are lots of nearby restaurants with outdoor patios where your pet will be welcome.

Have morning coffee and a bagel with your pet at Einstein Brother Bagels or Starbucks Coffee both located right on the strip. A little more upscale is the patio dining at TGI Fridays on Sahara Avenue near the Sahara hotel.

In addition to the hundreds of stores selling tourist items, you will find that every luxury retailer in the world has a store in one of the hotels or upscale shopping malls in Las Vegas. You will find brands such as Gucci, Burberry, Versace, Prada, and Hermes here.

Your well behaved small pet will be welcome in almost all of these shops, and you just might encounter a famous movie star carrying their poodle with its diamond dog collar from Tiffanys.

If you are in Las Vegas during the month of November, be sure to visit Strutt Your Mutt which is held at Dog Fanciers Park.

When you are tired of the bright lights, you can take a short trip of about 30 miles to Lake Mead and the giant Hoover Dam. At the lake, you and your pet can rent a houseboat for a day or a week and explore the more than 550 miles of shoreline, soaring red rock cliff and countless bays and beaches.

The houseboats come fully equipped and some come with a small runabout for skiing and fishing and even an on-board hot tub.
