Las Vegas an Olympian hotspot
Many people around the world have been glued to their television screens as they watched the London Olympics. With the Paralympics now around the corner, British Airways (BA) has revealed that Las Vegas is proving a top holiday spot for British Olympians wanting to celebrate after the Games.
Asking Team GB and Paralympic British athletes where the would like to travel on holiday in September once the sporting event came to an official close, BA found that a third of people said that America was their destination, with Orlando and Las Vegas being named top favourites. Helen Jenkins, a GB triathlete, said: "My husband and I love Vegas and cannot wait to return. The weather is always great, and there's always something going on. I'm not surprised it's popular with the athletes as we've all trained so hard for so long - it provides the perfect antidote to get away from it all."
Las Vegas, also known as Sin City, is one of the most popular destinations in the world. This glamorous American city is known for its theatrical shows, thriving casinos and vibrant nightlife. Famous sights such as the Bellagio fountains, the Luxor and MGM casinos, the Hoover Damn and the Grand Canyon, can all be enjoyed on trips to the city. For those who want to follow in Team GB's footsteps, heading to Las Vegas this September is perfect.
