It only makes sense that a city devoted to entertainment would feature a casino hotel devoted to the entertainment industry. The facility  which sits mid-Strip across from New York-New York at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue  hosts a variety of performances ranging from big-name concerts to sporting events to Cirque du Soleil's "KÀ." It is also the partner to the nearby T-Mobile Arena which hosts large-scale events, such as the Billboard Music Awards. 

The MGM Grand is also home to several top-notch restaurants and nightlife venues, such as Hakkasan nightclub, where celebrity DJs regularly spin hits into the wee hours. During the day, you can experience Wet Republic Ultra Pool, where you can dance, swim or relax in party cabanas. Several shops can be found here as well, but you'll likely spend most of your time (and your money) on the casino floor, which houses poker tables, slot machines and a race and sports book. Travelers were impressed by the size of the MGM Grand Casino, but said the nightlife options are the real star of the property.

If you've got kids in tow (or kids at heart), check out the newly added TopGolf – a four-level venue with interactive golf games. To learn more about its attractions and entertainment options, visit the MGM Grand's website. The complex also features three separate hotels: The main MGM Grand Hotel, as well as The Signature and the SKYLOFTS.

#1 The Strip

Once you pass the famous "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign along Las Vegas Boulevard South, it won't be too long until you're cruising the Strip. Sin City's notorious artery acts as the epicenter of any Vegas getaway. Here you'll find Las Vegas' most iconic landmarks, including the Bellagio Fountains, the Eiffel Tower at Paris, Las Vegas, the pyramid and sphinx belonging to The Luxor and The Venetian's Grand Canal

The "Strip" technically runs from Mandalay Bay on the south end (home to an aquarium and a man-made beach) to the Stratosphere casino on the north end, where you'll find the tallest free-standing observation tower in the country (this is where you'll go for the perfect Vegas photo).
