Las Vegas Highlights
A trip to Sin City is a multi-sensory experience. Bask amid the glowing pulsations of The Strip and its deluxe hotels and casinos, make room to savour its world-class cuisine, and explore the surrounding desert and natural landscape by catching a breath in the pockets of calm amid the chaos.
World Class Hotels
Las Vegas doesn’t hold back when it comes to its luxury hotel resorts, each is unique, fabulous, and offers a one-of-a-kind experience. Ride a gondola through the canals at The Venetian, loop-the-loop on the indoor rollercoaster at Circus Circus or throw coins into a miniature Trevi Fountain at Caesars Palace.
Vegas attracts the world’s biggest stars to its spectacular hotels, theatres and entertainment venues for out-of-this-world shows, musicals, concerts and performances. Come and see your favourites in action or take a chance on a new artist and absorb the electrifying atmosphere in the Dolby Live venue at Park MGM or the brand-new Las Vegas Sphere for a one-of-a-kind, immersive concert experience!
There aren’t many places you can hop into a helicopter and glide over one of the seven natural wonders of the world, but in Las Vegas, anything is possible. Take flight above the astonishing Grand Canyon and see this world-famous gorge in all its glory, while later that same day ride a gondola down the canals of Venice at The Venetian Resort and hit the casino for a quick spin on the slot machines and a nightcap.
In true American style, Las Vegas delivers when it comes to food. There are innumerable places to eat, whatever your tastes. From Michelin-starred fine dining and a host of celebrity restaurants, quick and casual eats to family-friendly joints, you’ll find it here in abundance. Stay in your hotel or head out to The Strip or Downtown Las Vegas for some unforgettable holiday dining!
San Francisco Highlights
San Francisco is known for many things and lends itself to several nicknames including ‘The Golden Gate City’, ‘The City of Fog’, and ‘The City by the Bay’. And with its welcoming locals and wonderful laid-back vibes, this is the city that has it all.
Whether you’re after some quirky one-off clothing items or some high-end designer gear, San Francisco has it all. Head to Union Square if you’re in the mood for a spending spree – or perhaps just some window shopping if you’ve understandably spent all your money on burritos. And for a splash of 60s nostalgia, take a trip to the colourful streets of Haight-Ashbury and purchase a pair of those flares you’ve always wanted!
Amazing Food Scene
San Francisco is a foodie’s paradise and known worldwide for its culinary creativity and delicious food innovations, which have been influenced by the cultures and flavours of the waves of immigrants settling in the city over the decades. Give your tastebuds a party and try classic dishes like Mission-style burritos, clam chowder and the delectable ‘cioppino’, a mouthwatering Italian-American fish stew that typically includes Dungeness crab, shrimp, mussels, scallops, squid and more.
San Francisco showcases its pride and progress through its many must-see historic landmarks. From wandering the former island prison of Alcatraz to cycling amongst the clouds along the Golden Gate Bridge and riding the old-charm cable cars that glide through the streets - your days in San Francisco will be equally unique and magical.
It might not be the best place to swim on California’s Pacific Coast, but San Francisco’s beaches are beautiful, brisk, and built for walks, paddling, sunbathing, and soaking up casual city vibes during your downtime. Dotted around the Bay are swathes of pretty sands, hiking trails, historic ruins and secluded coves for breathing in that crisp ocean air – and with stunning Golden Gate Bridge views, there are few more enticing spots to spend your days.

LAS VEGAS & SAN FRANCISCO HOLIDAYS FAQS
LAS VEGAS & SAN FRANCISCO HOLIDAYS FAQS
LAS VEGAS & SAN FRANCISCO HOLIDAYS FAQS
The best time of year for multi-centre holidays in Las Vegas and San Francisco is autumn. October and November are the best months to visit Las Vegas if you want to escape the intense heat of summer. Temperatures drop to a warm 29°C and the days are soaked in sunshine rather than rain, so it’s an ideal season for sightseeing and getting outdoors. Bear in mind, that while Las Vegas is a magnet for visitors all-year-round, cooler temperatures mean more crowds. We recommend booking attractions in advance to avoid disappointment.
San Francisco benefits from an Indian summer in autumn. From September to November, the weather is often hotter than the rest of the year (even summer!) with temperatures around 20°C. Days are sunny with a low chance of rain and fog, so it’s a great time of year to hit the beach or go sightseeing.
In the evenings, the autumn weather is cool and a little crisp in San Francisco, but it’s a beautiful time of year. The autumn foliage covers the city and Bay Area in a blanket of red, orange and burnished gold, which compliments the Golden Gate Bridge. This time of year sees fewer crowds too.
Yes! The Golden Gate Bridge is not just an icon of San Francisco but one of the most beautiful bridges in the world and a key bucket-list landmark of the United States. This engineering marvel is a suspension bridge which crosses the one-mile-wide Golden Gate Strait, linking San Francisco with Marin country to the north. The bridge was completed in 1937 and its striking orange vermilion colour was designed to both compliment the natural landscape and make it visible to ships in the fog.
You can drive, cycle or take a tour bus across the bridge. There’s also a pedestrian-friendly pavement which allows you to walk across it at your own pace and soak up the views of the Pacific Ocean, the San Francisco skyline and mysterious Alcatraz Island.
To learn more about the history and significance of the bridge, make sure you head to the Golden Gate Bridge Welcome Centre on the south side. For the best photo spots, Hawk Hill and Battery Spencer both have beautiful views, as well as along the bridge itself. Consider visiting at sunrise and sunset when the bridge’s golden arches glow in the dazzling light. It’s a sight not to be missed when planning San Francisco multi-centre holidays.
Both Las Vegas and San Francisco operate in the Pacific Time Zone (PT), which means there’s no time difference between them. Both destinations are usually 8 hours behind the UK.
In March and December, be sure to check when US time zones change to Daylight Saving Time as their clocks switch at a slightly different time to ours. For a short timeframe during DST, the UK may be seven hours ahead instead of eight.
For direct flights from the UK to Las Vegas, we recommend Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) as it’s just 5 miles south of Downtown Las Vegas. It takes approximately 16 minutes by car to reach the Strip from the airport. It’s also well-connected by public transport.
For the San Francisco part of your trip, San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is the main hub for the city and your top airport choice. It’s just 13 miles south of San Francisco and it takes about 30-40 minutes to reach the city centre by car or public transport. If you need flight advice for your Las Vegas and San Francisco twin-centre holidays, get in touch with our USA experts. They will be happy to help.
We are proud to offer guaranteed prices up to 36 months ahead of your twin-centre holiday. You can secure your perfect package with an initial low deposit today and pay the remainder of your holiday in monthly instalments. Browse our recommended Las Vegas multi-centres itinerary and start planning your trip.
It’s possible to get tickets on the day for some shows, but we recommend booking them in advance to get the best seats, prices and dates that work for you. Popular shows like Cirque du Soleil and performances by resident music artists sell out fast, so book them as soon as you’ve secured the dates for your trip to avoid disappointment. Always book your tickets via official websites or authorised ticket vendors to avoid scams and get the best prices. If you’re unsure, ask our USA experts and they will point you in the right direction.
The secret to your packing list for Las Vegas and San Francisco multi-centre holidays is layers. In Las Vegas, the desert heat can be scorching in summer and hot in autumn with plenty of sunshine all-year-round. In San Francisco, temperatures are much cooler and the city is known for its windy climate.
For multi-centres here, pack clothes you can easily layer up or down like breathable t-shirts, long-sleeved tops and lightweight sweaters. Light trousers and a jacket for cooler evenings and air-conditioned venues are also recommended.
Both destinations are sunny so bring sun protection and a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated wherever you go. Comfortable shoes are a must and swimwear will come in handy for beaches in San Francisco and swimming pools in Las Vegas. You may also want to bring smart-casual evening attire for fine dining or attending shows, otherwise, pack casual and comfortable clothing for both destinations.
You can quite literally shop till you drop in Las Vegas. The city’s lavish malls and shopping destinations are world-famous so you might want to bring a spare suitcase for all your souvenirs. We’re not kidding!
Start at the Fashion Show Mall located on the Strip. The huge shopping mall is known for its weekly runway shows, 250 fashion stores and 25 dining options. Miracle Mile Shops is the place to go for general souvenirs and casual entertainment, while the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is a Roman-themed mall featuring top fashion designers.
More high-end shopping can be found at Via Bellagio with its glamorous indoor avenue lined with luxury boutiques. Wynn Esplanade and Wynn Plaza are another must-visit, particularly if you’re on the hunt for a new Rolex watch.
If you like unique shopping experiences, head to the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian which has gondola rides on its Venice-inspired canals. Over at Linq Promenade, you can swap the shops for ziplining and the High Roller Observation Wheel, a 550ft Ferris wheel which soars above the city.
One of the best places to go shopping in San Francisco is Union Square. You’ll find everything here from upscale boutiques to high-street fashion brands. There are also plenty of restaurants, cafes and places to sit when you need a break.
For a cool culture-meets-vintage shopping experience, head over to Haight-Ashbury, a neighbourhood famous for the Hippie Movement of the 1960s. There, Amoeba Music record store will keep music buffs happy and colourful Love on Haight has eclectic retro finds. Over at Pier 39, the waterfront shopping destination has views of the Golden Gate Bridge and seafood restaurants serving up clam chowder, a signature dish of this city.
The Ferry Plaza Farmers Market is the place to go to find local businesses and one-of-a-kind souvenirs. The tri-weekly market features a wide range of fresh produce from California farmers alongside handmade crafts. The best time to visit is Saturday when there are over 100 vendors selling their wares.
