Where To Go For Sight Seeing In Las Vegas

Visit | Posted by Super Trooper Permalink

If you have been enjoying playing at the Royal Vegas Online Casino then you may decide that you want to visit the sights and sounds of Las Vegas in real life. However, when you actually get to Vegas you may not have as much time to play in the casinos as you may imagine as there are plenty of other things to see and do here.

 

Stratosphere

There is no better view over the whole strip than from the viewing platform at the Stratosphere. This is the tallest point in Las Vegas and offers amazing views in all directions. If you really want to treat yourself then go for a meal at the Top Of The World restaurant. The room revolves very slowly as you are eating and so you will be able to see the whole of the strip before you have finished your meal. When you eat at the restaurant you can get access onto the observation deck for free.

 

Big Bus Tours

This is an open top bus that travels up and down the strip on a daily basis. Once you have purchased a ticket for the bus you are able to get on and off as you wish if there is anywhere along the way that you would like to explore. The tour allows you to take in the whole length of the strip and also takes you to the famous ‘Welcome To Las Vegas’ sign which is a photo opportunity that you won’t want to miss out on. The cost of travelling on these tours is often far less than you would spend on taxis and you also get the benefit of a tour guide.

 

The High Roller

The High Roller is the largest observation in the world and has 28 observations pods that can hold up to 40 people in each one. There is also a bar in each pod so that you are able to enjoy a drink as the wheel slowly spins. The bartenders are all very knowledgeable about Vegas and will be happy to answer any questions that you may have. The pods go round very slowly so there are plenty of photo opportunities to take advantage of.

 

Fremont Street

If you want to explore some of Vegas away from the strip then Fremont Street is the best place to head to. The focus here is not so much casinos but the nightlife. You are able to drink alcohol as you walk along the street which is something that is not allowed on the strip and there is all kinds of live entertainment that will be going on. There is also the famous light show that takes place under the canopy that you will want to take in.

 

If you are worried about missing out on any casino action then you may be interested to know that most hotels offer free wifi. You can also try a casino online with a free bonus when you are relaxing in your room. You never know if playing while you are actually in Vegas will bring you some extra luck.

Everyone should spend some time exploring. This world is mind boggling in both it’s scale and it’s depth, you never know what you might find or what connections you could forge. Embrace the wonderful mess in all it’s glory and step onto ground yet unchartered to your eyes. Thankfully we now have technology to help make the travelling experience easier and more fulfilling. In this article we’ll be looking at some of the many apps designed to enrich your travelling experience. They can help you find that spark, that someone or that direction that will provide the memories you will cherish for the rest of your life.

Meeting New People

 

Before you set out apps like Miss Travel connect people looking to go on trips. You can state how much you’re willing to pay, from contributing nothing to contributing everything. It is often used by businessmen looking to alleviate the repetitive nature of work travel, and boasts of 300,000 trips organised.

 

If this isn’t your scene, MileHi links up travellers on the same flight. It allows you to set up a profile before browsing and chatting with other users headed to the same place as you. This could allow you to get some plans on the go before you’ve even landed.

 

These all have romantic connotations but an app like Tourbar is more clearly geared towards finding a connection. It uses the engine from Tinder so you can get swiping away just as usual and perhaps finding something to stand the test of time.

Communication & Translation Apps

 

If communication is the problem, there are many apps designed to make the experience easier for everyone involved. Check out this selection of the best translation apps on the market, collated by translation company Morningside Translations;

 

TripLingo has a wide range of phrases alongside awesome features like an instant voice recorder and translator. It also carries important information about the place you are in with emergency numbers and currency data. This app is key to anyone travelling abroad. You never know when you might need it.

 

The Google Translate app is also useful, allowing you to use the camera to provide text to translate. Point your phone at the writing and it will be translated directly onto the screen. Soon apps like these may seem outdated though, as this year.

 

The ili is being released. It is a device that hangs around the user’s neck and translates speech in real time, much like the Babel Fish in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, without all the unpleasantness of putting a fish in your ear. Mashed pronunciation and mixed up syntax may become a thing of the past.

 

Using apps to connect with the locals and help order your food is all well and good, but maintaining a conversation might be a little harder.

This is where iTranslate iMessage comes in. It allows you to translate messages directly in your chat window, meaning that your local love reads it in their native language and so do you. Seamless communication is here, and the potential it has to empower the travelling experience is unprecedented. Get downloading and before you know it the world will be at your fingertips.

 

Reasons why you should visit these states in America

Visit | Posted by Super Trooper Permalink


America has so much to offer its guest and because the country is big in size it can be easy to miss certain locations that might not be well known. That would be a big shame as this country gives you the opportunity to see so many different types of scenery and cities- you’ll have the chance to witness everything from beautiful coastlines to majestic mountains ranges. Whether you’re down south or traveling to the altitudes of the north, due to its vast and expansive size there are so many states that are either overlooked or underrated. Remember, before discovering these underrated states, make yourself aware that you are carrying the correct visa to avoid disruption when entering the US. Enjoy the peace of mind and apply for your ESTA visa at https://www.esta-visa.org.uk/ so you can enter the land of dreams and enjoy the best the States has to offer.

Now that you’re covered, it’s time to get those travel boots on because here are the top states in America you should visit:

Maine                                                                  

Forget about tourists, most Americans have never seen Maine, the sparsest populated state east of Mississippi. Resting quietly, almost invisible to its surroundings, there is a reason why Maine is called ‘Vacationland’. Maine offers a unique, natural setting that has been luring summer tourists for decades. It contains a tranquil and temperate setting for its visitors to submerge themselves in calming nature and rural life and they can find endless things to do and places to explore.

Minnesota

To many Americans, Minnesota is just another state in flyover country, somewhere just situated between the east coast and the Rockies towards Canada. But this state is hugely overlooked; it contains a bolstering art scene, a vibrant outdoor culture, affordable prices and a friendly atmosphere, making Minnesota a perfect place for a weekend or a nice trip.

Arkansas

Arkansas is not known by most but the Razorback State is an undeservedly overlooked state in America, underrated for its BBQ’s and spa town tranquillity. It can be said that this state is home to the best or worst college cheer, the best or worst former president, and the best former NATO supreme allied commander. So, you could say the traits it shows off are a bit hit and miss.

Alaska

Another underrated and overlooked state is Alaska. It is one of America’s greatest remaining expanses of truly unspoiled wilderness and judgement-free opportunities. In your free time watch for those rogue bears whilst enjoying the stunning beauty and eerie silence of walking on a glacier

Connecticut

The place that invented the cheeseburger, the can opener, ESPN, and Rick Mahorn… need I say more? Well if you go in the autumn, then yes I do! Connecticut is known for its New England Autumns and one of the nicest things about Connecticut is that in the northern part, the autumns have the same appeal as places like Vermont or New Hampshire- beautiful foliage and greenery that is unmatched almost anywhere in the United States.  

 

Why Rome should be your next summer holiday

Visit | Posted by Super Trooper Permalink

 

 

I don’t know about you, but now that the excitement of Christmas is over, I’m ready for the next adventure. I think the only way to lift the January blues is to look ahead to the next place I intend to visit, and this year I’m looking at Rome as one of my top picks. Here are just a few of the reasons why I can’t wait to book a summer trip there this year, and why you shouldn’t hesitate either!

 

You can take part in Estate Romana

From June through to September, Estate Romana (or Roman Summer) takes over the many streets, parks and piazze of this ancient city. This annual festival is always greatly anticipated by tourists and locals alike, as it’s packed with a long list of events held in various locations across the city.

 

Local, up-and-coming bands perform live music, and if you’re quick to grab a picnic spot, there are dozens of films shown on outdoor screens late into the night. From famous literature readings to culinary feats by the greatest chefs around, this is one event that I simply cannot wait for, and as most of them are free to attend, so there’s no excuse for you to miss out.

 

You can watch classic operas under the stars

There are only a handful of places in the world that do opera well, and Rome is one of them. Not only because they have some of the greatest productions in the world, but because the surroundings in which you can enjoy them are so different from anywhere else!

 

If you prefer high-society and the decadent surroundings of an authentic opera house, then you can spend an evening at the Teatro Costanzi. If you’d like something a little more unique though, then why not try out the romantic ‘opera under the stars’ experience at the Terme di Caracalla instead? I’ll certainly be heading there during this year’s warm summer evenings – if you’d like to join me, just make sure you book your tickets in advance via www.romeoperatickets.com, as they sell out fast!

It’s perfect for lovers of theater and dance

There are two events in particular that will appeal to the creative people reading this post. Firstly, the Cosmophonies Festival Internazionale di Ostia Antica is held from June until mid-September, and this is a celebration of theatre, dance and music. The international festival is held in the ancient theatre of Ostia Antica, and offers the stage to groups such as Sonic Youth, Morrissey, Caetano Veloso and Jackson Browne.

 

As if that wasn’t enough, why not stick around for the annual Fiesta? Held from mid-June to mid-August, this Latin American-themed festival is a great example of how diverse Rome is, allowing almost a million people over the summer months to enjoy a variety of Latin American bands, as well as sample some authentic cuisine from the many pop-up stalls.

 

Have I convinced you that Rome is the place to be this summer? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below…
