Supposedly, Disneyland is the happiest place on earth, but according to a study by Club Med, Las Vegas has its own happy vacation references.

The US casino capital is ranked first in Club Med’s survey of North America’s “happiest vacation spots” and second in the global poll, only to Bali. Cities are ranked with scores ranging from 0-100 on factors such as crime/safety, LGBTQ+ friendliness, outdoor activities, cost of alcohol, daytime amenities, spas and wellness centers, and overall city happiness.
Las Vegas had an edge thanks to a wide variety of daytime activities, perfect for visitors planning to make the most of their stay! As well as Las Vegas; New Orleans, Vancouver, San Francisco and Washington are in the top 5 destinations. New Orleans was a close second with a lucky score of 26.8 out of 100,” said Club Med.
New Orleans was the top scoring North American city in LGTBQ+ friendliness. Like Las Vegas, the home of Mardi Gras offers visitors a plethora of world-class restaurants. The Crescent City is also home to Harrah’s New Orleans, which is being renovated and eventually named Caesars Palace.
Las Vegas: Gaming and Happiness
Obviously, the Las Vegas tourist scene is largely built on casino games, and there are no guarantees that visitors will beat the house. In fact, the house has the edge in just about every game on the floor.
Despite the fact that losing money at the slot machines or tables is probably not a joyous experience, Las Vegas’ lucky scores are impressive. When gaming, alcohol is free. In addition, Sin City is home to world-renowned restaurants, ample entertainment options beyond gaming, and some Strip-integrated resorts have luxury spas and wellness centers. The city also scores well in the area of LGBTQ+ friendliness.
“With over 40 outdoor activities, Las Vegas is the place to be if you’re looking for an adventure. This city also has a high safety rating, so you can feel comfortable exploring all that Las Vegas has to offer,” adds Club Med.
None of the other top 10 North American cities in the Club Med survey are gaming hubs per se, but New Orleans has the aforementioned Harrah’s, Los Angeles is home to several card rooms, and there are several casinos in the Toronto area. .
Las Vegas dominance
According to Club Med’s global survey, only three US cities – Las Vegas, New Orleans and San Francisco – make the top 10. The others are Bali, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Budapest, Vancouver, Dubai and Rio De Janeiro.
Las Vegas has a tradition of being one of the most visited cities in the US and amid an ongoing slump in Macau, Sin City is vying for the crown of the world’s largest casino center as measured by gross gaming revenue (GGR). . Other data points highlight the city’s dominance in the North American travel space.
In the second quarter, Caesars, MGM and Wynn each reported daily occupancy rates of over 90%, with Harrah’s operator achieving its best quarterly revenue per available room (RevPAR) in its history. Wynn traded average daily rates 40% above pre-pandemic levels.
An uptick in conference and group gathering activity, which some analysts believe will happen in 2023, could help keep Las Vegas afloat should consumer spending fall.
