Las Vegas, United States of America (US)
for access to departure times, security waiting times, Airport Wi-Fis, lounge access and more. McCarran International Airport
Las Vegas is the world capital of gambling, so it only seems logical that the gambling starts at the airport already.
There are slot machines all over the airport. They're waiting for travellers with some remaining currency to offload, or with a desire to pay their first tribute to the gambling gods right after landing in Vegas. You can even gamble at the slots next to the carousels while waiting for your luggage to arrive.
The infamous Las Vegas Strip is only a few miles away from the airport, so a long layover may mean you’ve got enough time to see a few sights by using a taxi.
Be aware that McCarran Airport typically has long security checkpoint lines and there can be delays getting to and from the airport. Give yourself plenty of time to get back to the airport if you plan on exploring the Las Vegas strip in between flights.
If you'd rather skip the slot machines and learn more about the planes you're flying in, head to the Howard W. Cannon Aviation Museum. Aviation lovers will enjoy exploring 3,000 square feet of rich exhibits detailing the aviation history of southern Nevada.
