No travel to the west coast is complete without a trip to Las Vegas.
Like an oasis in the desert, Nevada’s most popular resort town, Las Vegas, is a short drive from Los Angeles. With casinos, shows, concerts, and gambling, it is a frequent weekend destination. The strip includes many iconic landmarks (from The Luxor’s pyramids and The New York New York’s Statute of Liberty to The Flamingo and Circus Circus, the strip lights up in a big and bright way). Beginning this year, Las Vegas has become a sports town. The hometown Las Vegas Golden Knights play in the T-Mobile arena near New York New York (which makes sense for hockey!). The Golden Knights have made it to the Stanley Cup Western Conference Finals in their first season. Walking the strip on a game day, you’ll see many “Neal” and “Fleury” jerseys, showing how the spirit of the game has infiltrated the entire city. Home games include a medieval pre-show, celebrities, and lots of Vegas glamour. The family friend atmosphere makes Knights’ games a great event to attend with children.
If you find yourself visiting the west coast, head over the NHL page and check out the Golden Knights’ page. Can you fit a game or practice in to your trip? You won’t be disappointed and you’ll see a brand new type of Las Vegas show.
