There's food service in both terminals and at the gates of both concourses from restaurants such as Godfather's Pizza, Dagwood's Deli, Austin Blues & BBQ and Simply Scrumptious.

Las Vegas is a city of nearly two million residents located in the Nevada desert. It's considered a premier tourist destination, with some of the best hotel casinos, entertainers and restaurants available in the world. The city's large size and steady growth are due primarily to the legalization of gambling in 1931, which brought the casino hotels to the area, and the Manhattan Project, which brought a boost in population during the 1940s.
Your flight to Las Vegas will take you to McCarran International Airport, located about 5 miles from the city's business district. After landing, a quick way to get to your final destination in the city is by taxi. You'll find taxis located outside terminals one and three, and the fare to most of the hotels on the Las Vegas Strip will be between $10 and $15.
Las Vegas is in season all year long, but you should avoid making the trip during large convention periods, such as during the annual Consumer Electronics Show. Rooms during these convention times will be in high demand and a bit more expensive to acquire. The area does have seasonal weather patterns, with average highs reaching the 100 degrees Fahrenheit range in midsummer and lows in the mid-30s during the winter. Dress is light for most of the year, with light jackets during spring and fall, and moderate coats worn during the winter.
Las Vegas is most famous for its entertainment offerings. There is a cluster of older hotel casinos in the downtown area including the Golden Nugget and Binion's Horseshoe. However, most of the action has moved to the Las Vegas Strip, which is actually located in an unincorporated area just outside the city limits. There's more to do in Las Vegas than gambling and watching the shows at the hotels. The city has several high-quality museums, a First Friday event every month that showcases local artists, and the Smith Center for the Performing Arts, where you can see anything from a Broadway play or a Shakespeare production to a world-class ballet company.
Your trip to Las Vegas from Omaha can be an exciting journey filled with fun and entertainment. The flight itself should go smoothly, with both airports offering amenities to make travel easy, from the restaurants at Eppley, to the easy taxi access at McCarran. With help from Orbitz.com, the trip can be even easier, with the site aiding you with everything from reserving your tickets from Omaha to Las Vegas to reserving the hotel room for your stay.
