Monuments have been erected at various locations throughout the course highlighting British Open history.
6. Scottish Up Your Vegas Wedding
You never know what might happen when in Vegas. If you find yourself at the famed Little White Chapel with nothing to wear, don’t fret … Viva Las Vegas Weddings can provide you with Scottish gear to throw some tradition into the celebratory day. We admit, it’s a little hokey but isn’t Las Vegas?
7. James Bond locations in Las Vegas
James Bond made a visit to Las Vegas in the 1971 film Diamonds are Forever. This handy-dandy guide allows you to step into 007’s shoes and have a James Bond Evening.
8. Lazy Joe’s Fish & Chips
A lot of times when people go on holiday there is such a rush that you almost need a vacation when you get home. Lazy Joe’s, located at 7835 S. Rainbow Blvd, is a nice rest stop to have a sit and take a rest and fuel up on tasty fish and chips.
9. Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill
Gordon Ramsay definitely knows his way around the kitchen as we see him turnaround failing restaurants in the BBC America show Kitchen Nightmares. Ramsay brings a bit of British to the strip with two unique experiences under one roof. The restaurant, nestled in Caesars Palace, provides a relaxed and friendly grill section which offers dishes like Scottish Salmon and whole brick pressed Cornish chicken. The pub features elevated British pub food with plenty of televisions to catch up on your sport of choice.
10. Big Ben Slot Machine
“Big money, big money!” Let’s hope the Big Ben slot machine brings us some luck. The slot machines, available online, were designed by the Aristocrat slot machine company. The game features all things British like Big Ben, double decker buses, telphone booths, gas lanterns, tavern signs, the Union Jack flag, crowns and guards. Rather than shouting “Big money” maybe “Big Ben, Big Ben!” makes more sense in this case. If you can’t make it to Vegas, you can bring the fun to you!
