This month’s Memorable City is Las Vegas. If the names of such cities as “city of light’s”, or “the city that never sleeps” weren’t already claimed, Las Vegas would certainly be entitled to them.
Las Vegas, roughly translated, means “the meadows”. Located just west of the older downtown area, there is a series of natural springs that is now called "the Springs Preserve". Pioneers would stop at the springs on their way west. Today, Las Vegas is an ever-changing fantasy-land of a city and has seen unbelievable expansion since it emerged from the desert in 1905.
The sights and sounds of Las Vegas are enjoyed by millions of visitors every year, be it those attending a convention, on business trips, or couples and friends looking for a city for a good time. The city offers some of the most glamorous, unique hotels in the world. It seems five-star restaurants and expansive buffets are at every corner. Visitors can play at casinos, cool in pools, relax at health spas, laugh in comedy clubs, enjoy elaborate shows and get away from all of the above at over 15 golf courses.
Those who visit Vegas are always amazed at the sheer number of things to see and do. A little advance planning will help you to enjoy your Vegas trip. If you have a full day to commit to a tour, we strongly recommend visiting the Grand Canyon. If this is not on your bucket list – add it.

I have been working with TravelPlex for many years and I must say it has been a refreshing experience. Our travel needs often require instantaneous service, and they are always there for us. TravelPlex offers us great personal service, great pricing and a 24/7 hotline. To me, THAT equals a hat trick!

We’ve been with TravelPlex for over 20 years. The lone exception is when we left them for (a mega travel agency). It took us about a year before we realized that the personal service and attention that the TravelPlex staff just wasn’t there with (the mega agency). Neither was the savings (the mega agency) promised. We were so low on the totem pole that we were lucky if we ever had anyone contact us. But at TravelPlex, the staff always goes above and beyond to make sure we get the best prices and that our travelers are always taken care of. TravelPlex makes all our travelers feel like VIP’s, and that’s important – and rare!
Carrie Willard is the reason I keep coming back to Travelplex. She is "WONDERFUL". She is always so helpful and goes the extra step to make sure everything is satisfactory and done the way the customer wants it. She always has a smile on her face, which is even apparent over the phone. I have entrusted our vacations with Carrie now for 3yrs and could never imagine using anyone else to help us plan our trips. I have referred at least 5 of my friends to her, and they all have had nothing but glowing remarks about Carrie. She is an asset to your company and exemplifies the true meaning of "CUSTOMER SERVICE".
With the announcement by President Trump on March 11th banning travel to/from Europe starting March 13th (Friday) starting at 11:59pm, TravelPlex has already been reaching out to our clients who are affected by this announcement.
