Private Jets to Las Vegas: 4 Great Holiday Events in Sin City
When people charter private jets to Las Vegas, talk usually swirls around gambling, partying and living a little on the wild side. And for all of the shenanigans visitors get up to in Vegas, it’s certainly deserving of the nickname ‘Sin City.’ But there’s also plenty of wholesome fun to be had in the world’s most entertaining city. Especially as we head towards the Christmas season, there are a number of holiday-inspired events guaranteed to get you and your family into the spirit. Here are just a few examples of things you can do in Vegas that don’t require dice or poker chips.
1. The Nutcracker
