LAS VEGAS HIGHLIGHTS: Las Vegas Highlights. Las Vegas is a shimmering scene at the edge of the Mojave Desert.  A-list entertainment and celebrity-chef restaurants are the games in town besides glitzy casinos.  In addition, spectacular scenic beauty is not far from the Strip.  Zion, Grand Canyon and Death Valley National Parks are a short distance drive with perfect conditions for hikers, photographers, and star gazers alike.
