There are lots of reasons why people feel the overwhelming need to take a trip to Las Vegas. The city is the site of countless bachelor and bachelorette parties, and things are likely to get crazy and more than a little confusing, as indicated in The Hangover movies. Several couples have decided to tie the knot in Las Vegas, as well. As a matter of fact, it's the city most people are likely to elope in.

Las Vegas is also the ideal vacation spot for a girls' or guys' getaway. Even though the city is well-known for its casinos, there are plenty of other things to do in Vegas, like attending an entertaining show or doing some world-class shopping. The hotels ooze luxury as well, so a good portion of your vacation could be spent ordering room service, doing a few laps in the pool or getting a professional spa treatment. If you're not quite sure what you'd like to do once you land in Vegas, a handy guide would definitely be helpful. The city has a number of well-known acts that have been staples in Las Vegas entertainment. Of course, there are also some new and innovative acts you won't want to pass up. Here are 10 of the highest paid entertainers in Vegas.

Garth Brooks definitely has a sweet deal when it comes to performing in Vegas. Steve Wynn gave Garth Brooks a stage and a theater for performing, along with a private jet, so that Brooks can get from Vegas to his Oklahoma home in style. In return for such generosity, Brooks gives a fascinating and emotionally charged one-man show that tells a beautiful and layered story. The only prop onstage is his guitar, and he sings songs or parts of songs from artists who have inspired him, including James Taylor and George Jones. He also pokes a little fun at himself, stating that he can't sing as well as Taylor Swift, and has a hard time tuning a guitar. Brooks was paid $100 million for his Vegas "residency," along with the $15 million bonus for the private jet.
