The Bucket Life: Las Vegas

Unless a person has been living under a rock, just the sheer whisper of "Las Vegas" tends to conjure up a vibrant, well-lighted mental image and Rat Pack swagger that is iconic to Sin City.


Young and old, near and far, gambler and shopper, the Las Vegas Strip is a must-see for nearly every type of traveler. Yet there are many who don't also realize just beyond the man-made splendor of the marquee signs and headline performers, the black jack tables and the high-end shops, is an easy ride to the Grand Canyon, Death Valley and the Colorado River at Hoover Dam.


Each week, the Las Vegas strip welcomes approximately 600,000 people, roughly the population size of Boston. And while, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas," it's easy to understand how a trip here can be at the top of anyone's wish list.

This episode of The Bucket Life connects the city's man-made wonders to its surreal setting in the gorgeous deserts of the American southwest. It is fun to be a tourist in Las Vegas – where anything goes – and people feel a freeing permission to be curious, to check things out, and to ask questions.


And they come home from their time there, usually tired, but always fulfilled. People also come for the customer service and complete experience. Poolside cabanas and nearby golf courses offer relaxation after a hike along the Grand Canyon's South Rim. "Night Light" tours make The Strip more accessible and easier to consume in all its grandeur, and helicopter adventures bring it all into a new focus. This is Las Vegas, Baby. This is, "The Bucket Life."


Live the Bucket Life in Las Vegas.
