Get away... viva Las Vegas

7th February 2003 at 00:00
Your National Lottery ticket is not going to provide an escape route from school. But if you're determined to gamble on a new life, Las Vegas is the place to go. At least you'll have an exciting holiday even if you have to come back to the classroom at the end of it.

The entertainment capital of the world has more than 300 days of sunshine a year, though you might not see much daylight over half-term when there are shows to catch by performers ranging from shred-metal icons Queens of the Stone Age to former Grease monkey Olivia Newton-John. Or you can leave your partner at the casino tables while you take in the Impressionist treasures of the Guggenheim.

American specialist Bon Voyage is offering a two-centre, seven-night holiday for pound;499, including return scheduled flights departing from Heathrow on Sundays, internal flight, four nights' room-only at the Riviera hotel right on the strip in Las Vegas and three nights' bed and continental breakfast at the Astor on the Park Hotel opposite Central Park in New York's Upper West Side. Departures from Manchester and Glasgow are pound;40 extra. Details: 0800 316 0194;
