3 Los Angeles to Las Vegas
This morning we leave Los Angeles behind and head out across the Mojave Desert to the bright lights of legendary Las VegasLA, you've been a dream, but we're swapping out the glamourous dreamscape of La La land for the neon delights of Vegas. A place of dreams and epic debauchery, this huge man-made entertainment precinct in the middle of the desert is all about total excess. You'll be blinded by the bright lights and gobsmacked at the thought of all the $$$ running through more than 75 massive casinos. A nighttime tour of the famous ‘Strip', including a stop for pics at the legendary Vegas sign, will show you what's on offer after dark in this outrageous city. (D)
4 Las Vegas
Spend the morning lazing by the poolside sipping on recovery cocktails, or maybe opt to soar in a helicopter above the Grand Canyon – one of the world's most impressive natural wonders. This city has some quirkier offerings too, like the Neon Museum and the Atomic Testing Museum. At night, we'll treat you to a cruise down the strip, Vegas Style. (B)
5 Las Vegas
Our final day in 'Sin City' is open for you to let loose and enjoy. High roll (or observe from a safe distance) in one of the countless casinos, do some bargain-hunting in the factory outlets, admire the elaborate synchronised fountains of The Bellagio, or opt to catch a Cirque du Soleil show. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, and we're staying one more night for you to make sure you have #noregrets!
6 Las Vegas to Miami
This morning we trade one hot spot for another as we board our flight to Miami! Get ready for beaches, glamour and excitement. Welcome to Miami, Bienvenido a Miami! We'll swap the bling for beaches today as we touch down in Florida's Southeastern tip. Today's a free day for you to soak up as much of that Florida sunshine and sea as you can. Tomorrow we'll check out the Cuban-influenced downtown and the colourful buildings & white sands of glamorous South Beach.
Another day in this eclectic city, and we've got the need for speed. Why not go a little Miami Vice on a Thriller speedboat tour of the bay? After experiencing a slice of the city's Cuban side with a mouthwatering dinner tonight (on us), take a stroll down the super cool South Beach and peruse the art deco buildings and bright neon lights, finishing up with a night of dancing amidst Miami's uber fun club scene. Want to make it a night to really remember? Opt for our boat party and cruise around Miami harbour, spending your evening like a celebrity. (B/D)
You'll discover energetic Miami today with free time to do as you please. This urban tropical paradise is a fabulous place to people watch (or celebrity spot), so head down to Ocean Avenue and drink it all in. Swimming, bike riding tours or museum visits are also on the cards this afternoon. Little Havana is a must see with Cuban flavours to taste, dominoes to be played and salsa music to be danced to. Tonight, get into the nighttime vibes once again, because well, why not?
It's our last day in Miami, and by now we're definitely feeling like locals. If you haven't yet copped yourself a fedora, taken that classic insta pic by a vintage car or seen all the sights you wanted to see, now's your chance. Let loose on the city's vintage stores to stock up on souvenirs, or even take the day to get in that all-important tanning sesh - this is our last day in Miami, after all. Tonight, we'll sip margaritas and swap stories about our highlights, ready for our morning flight the next day. (B)
