Fremont Street is located in what the locals class as the 'Old Las Vegas'. It houses such famous hotels as the Golden Nugget and is certainly an eye opener at night.
The light show happens from dusk to midnight daily and there is a Neon Museum which opens 24 hours. The light show is free and will amaze you.
The canopy which runs the length of Fremont Street uses a 550,000 watt sound system and has 12.5 million synchronized LED lights and 180 strobes. All of the displays are amazing from planes flying across the canopy to dancers and wonderful light displays.
There are plenty of souvenir shops dotted around the canopy for you to visit and plenty of places to eat and drink.
Fremont Street is in the old part of Las Vegas and I would recommend taking a taxi or the bus which runs on the strip regularly.
My husband and I got married in Las Vegas in 2002 after falling in love with the city. We opted for a wedding at Treasure Island and found the whole experience wonderful.
The wedding staff pretty much take care of everything, all you have to do is turn up. I was a bit worried about how things would turn out like flowers and food, but should not have been worried as they were truly out of this world.
We invited family over to witness the big day which made the whole thing much more special. For the bride there is a range of treatments available to you in the spa, such as your hair and makeup for the big day.
They even video the ceremony and have it available in UK format for when you return home.
Most hotels offer a wedding package and the rates are really quite reasonable. We could not fault the service we had from the wedding staff and it was nice to get there and have everything waiting.
As I mentioned, most of the big hotels offer a wedding package, but we opted for Treasure Island which is located at 3300 S. Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV 89109.
Just in front of the spectacular Bellagio hotel on the heart of the strip is the most wonderful fountain show which takes place throughout the day. The fountains jump and dance to music which is played out onto the street.
The best time to see this show is at night as the fountains are lit up and make the show even more amazing. I believe the show runs every hour or so and it's totally free to watch. This goes for all of the entertainment outside the major hotels on the strip.

If you want to see the most wonderful scenery in America, then I suggest you take a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon. The feeling you get from hovering above the canyon is quite amazing.
During a holiday to Las Vegas with my husband we were able to witness a storm which passed across the canyon. To stand there and watch the forks of lightning crossing the sky was quite magical, especially when you're standing in hot sunshine on the other side.
For the more romantic of you, there is an option to actually land in the canyon and have lunch over looking the truly wonderful scenery.
During the flight back you fly over the strip which is lit up in all its glory. All I can say is "wow". This has to be one of those trips you certainly have to make in your lifetime.
You can get a trip to the canyon from most tourist shops along the strip, or your hotel will have information.
