Las Vegas will focus on the many different wonders it has to offer from what people expect in terms of the strip, which is considered the hub of Las Vegas to the different tours available from visits to the Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Wet n Wild Water Park (In the desert, which is a wonder in itself) to the variety of shows and concerts on offer, e.g. Blue Man Group, Celine Dion, Country Superstars, Variety Shows etc. My Las Vegas talk will also look at the stark contrast of Vegas during the day and at night as well as my main reason every year for visiting my Star Trek convention held at the Rio Suites Hotel.
