Be sure to make time for Las Vegas' sizzling nightlife. The city is home to some of the world’s most spectacular nightclubs, including Chateau at Paris Las Vegas, XS at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, Hakkasan at MGM Grand and Marquee at The Cosmopolitan

No visit to Las Vegas is complete without a quick photo op at the iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign or the Fountains of Bellagio. It’s equally beautiful day or night! 

There's so much to see - plan your time wisely and make the most of your 72-hour run.
