SkyJump Las Vegas

What do the Las Vegas Strip and skydiving have in common?  For one, both can be adventurous, daring and downright crazy. Can you imagine if these two were combined? That’s where The Strat comes in.  Similar to skydiving, SkyJump Las Vegas can be described as a “controlled free fall,” with riders attached to a vertical zip line. Brave souls dive from the 108th floor of the Stratosphere tower to a landing mat on the ground. During this ride, you’ll soar through the air. The breeze you feel while descending down to the ground is like no other.  Before the jump, you’ll be given a short safety lesson and fitted into a jumpsuit. Next, you’ll be connected to a patented “descender machine.” One of the guides will lead you to the edge of a small platform. Here is where you’ll leap out and plunge down to the ground.  Believe it or not, you don’t really experience that queasiness in your stomach that you instantly get from a steep roller coaster drop. Sure, you might feel the butterflies before your leap (especially when you have to scoot your toes off the platform’s edge), but once you take that step, it’s smooth sailing.  If you’re still feeling apprehensive, this might bring you peace of mind — guide wires will keep you from straying off course. In addition, right before reaching the ground the machine slows down, giving you more than enough time to prepare for a safe landing. The landing process is actually easier than getting off a ski lift. Once you land, you’ll feel such a rush — you’ll want to run up and do it again. Bonus: If you’re able to keep your eyes open during the thrill ride, you’ll catch a remarkable view of the Las Vegas Strip. Still too scared to go? Watching your friends take the plunge can be just as fun. Well…not really. Nothing can compare to actually taking the leap, so this is something everyone should experience. Besides, how many people can say they jumped from one of the tallest towers in the country? Put your scaredy-cat feelings aside and just do it.

The Silverton isn’t located on the Las Vegas Strip, so it’s no wonder this quirky place has a distinctly un-Strip-like attitude. First of all, let us explain where it is. The Silverton is located just west of Las Vegas Boulevard, off the I-15 at Blue Diamond Road. That’s about five miles south (a 10-minute drive) of the famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. If you don’t have a car, don’t worry. The Silverton offers free shuttle service to and from McCarran International Airport. Anyway…getting back to the Silverton’s attitude…maybe we should expand upon “un-Strip-like” because it also has a very “un-desert-like” outlook. This hotel was designed to resemble a mountain lodge (minus the mountain). And, except for the casino and the huge aquarium with mermaids (hence why we called it “quirky” above), it does a good of job of capturing a peaceful, rustic feeling. You’ll get a down-home welcome when you arrive, and the décor — lots of stone and wood detail work — evokes a warm, outdoorsy feeling. For this reason, the Silverton seems to attract a more rugged, independent-minded group of visitors who embrace going off-the-beaten track in Vegas. And this also explains the hotel’s featured attraction: Bass Pro Shops. The beloved Midwestern chain has a two-story flagship store connected to the Silverton (you can literally walk right into it from the casino). Modeled after an Adirondack hunting lodge, Bass Pro Shops houses everything related to fishing, boating, camping, golf and open-air recreation. You’ll find archery and shooting ranges here. There’s even a waterfall that feeds into a 40,000-gallon aquarium where fishing lessons are conducted. Because you can never have enough aquariums, there’s an impressive one inside the Silverton too. It’s a circular 117,000-gallon saltwater aquarium. People are always gathered around it, mesmerized by the exotic fish — including leopard sharks, stingrays, parrotfish and triggerfish. At various times on Thursdays through Sundays, you can catch free live shows called “mermaid swims.” (If Ariel is your favorite Disney princess, then you’re in for a treat!) Although there are plenty of benches, chairs and nooks around the aquarium (in addition to the Mermaid Cove Art Gallery, where you can purchase paintings of mermaids by Wil Comier), the nearby Mermaid Restaurant & Lounge boasts elevated seating with a great view. When you get hungry, the Silverton is home to many other restaurants that have nothing to do with the sea. Sink your teeth into a succulent cut of meat at the Twin Creeks Steakhouse. Dig into Mexican specialties while surrounded by colorful lights at the Mi Casa Grill Cantina. Devour upscale café fare in the Sundance Grill, which also has a yummy gelato stand.  If you’re more interested in drinking than eating, there are a few nice bars at the Silverton. Our favorite is the Shady Grove Lounge because it has a vintage 1950s Airstream trailer with two mini bowling alleys inside. The Flare Bar, near the parking garage, offers a more contemporary vibe highlighted by 260 color-changing light fixtures. During the summer the Sway Pool & Lounge is a pleasurable place to soak up the sun. Specialty cocktails (like the Silverton Punch) are served at the small yet stylish dipping pool, which is surrounded by cabanas, daybeds and a hot tub. So even though the Silverton is un-Strip-like, it’s perfect if you’re looking for an affordable, laid-back Vegas vacation. You won’t be far from the action, but you will be far enough away to enjoy a more secluded stay…in a curious lodge-meets-casino-meets-mermaids world.

Westin Las Vegas Hotel & Spa

It’s likely you’ve heard of the “Westin” brand before. When you stay at one of their hotels, you expect good service, a comfy bed (so comfy, it’s got a divine name: the “Westin Heavenly Bed”) and a squeaky clean room (OK, we’re exaggerating here…your room won’t squeak, but it still should be in very good condition). That’s the nice thing about certain brands — you can be confident they’ll maintain certain standards. So picture a typical Westin hotel. But now imagine that it’s located a mere two blocks from the world-famous Las Vegas Strip. Ta da…jazz hands…and any other form of exclamation you can think of: You’ve got The Westin Las Vegas Hotel & Spa. Situated on Flamingo Road, near Las Vegas Boulevard (which, by the way, is one of the busiest intersections in the city), you’re practically a hop, skip and a jump from several major megaresorts — like Bellagio, Horseshoe Las Vegas, Caesars Palace and The Cromwell. You’re also almost next door to The LINQ Promenade (you might even catch a glimpse of its signature attraction, the High Roller observation wheel, from your window). In addition, if you stay at The Westin Las Vegas Hotel & Spa, you can look forward to a combination of relaxation and laid-back fun. The relaxation comes from the Hibiscus Spa, which has a sauna and steam room (you are allowed to use these as part of the resort fee). This spa is a great place for head-to-toe pampering. Enjoy a variety of massages, body treatments, facials and salon services — like the Tranquil Escape Detoxifying Mud Mask, which you may need to help you recover after a wild night on the town. You’ll find the hotel’s outdoor heated pool just a few steps from the spa. Four private cabanas and plenty of deck chairs surround it. What better place to while away an afternoon? Alternatively, if you want to keep up your exercise schedule, you can do so in the fitness studio. Burn off calories on an array of treadmills, stationery bikes and elliptical machines. After your workout, or really any time you feel a hunger pang, head to Savona. Open 24 hours, this restaurant features American-style cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Plus, there are daily specials, a kids’ menu, late-night eats and a variety of desserts. Coffee, pastries and sandwiches are also available around the clock at Starbucks, which is located next to the hotel’s gift shop. Unlike a typical Las Vegas hotel, the Westin Las Vegas Hotel & Spa is non-gaming.  The Westin Las Vegas Hotel & Spa is also known for catering to business travelers. There’s an excellent business center here as well as plenty of space for meetings, conventions or special events. A quiet retreat with proximity to one of the most exhilarating streets in the world (and all of its wonderful attractions), The Westin Las Vegas Hotel & Spa not only has the rep, but much more.

OYO Hotel & Casino

OYO Hotel and Casino Las Vegas, just east of the Strip, is a relaxed spot on the Strip where you can soak up some sun or enjoy the game.  The vibe: Chill and relaxed. A great place to catch the game.   What we love: Location, location, location. OYO Hotel and Casino Las Vegas is only a block from one of the busiest intersections on the Strip. It takes mere minutes to walk to several of the city’s must-visit properties. Free parking. Did you hear us correctly? If not, please allow us to say it again: FREE PARKING! Looking to catch a Golden Knights’ game? Park your car, enjoy a bucket of brewski or two and make your way down to T-Mobile Arena.   Insider tips: Free parking. Seriously, what’s not to love about free parking? Here’s a rare find on the Strip: $1 blackjack. You’re welcome. Good to know: Accommodations at OYO Hotel and Casino Las Vegas start at less than $30. Inexpensively priced, these rooms surprisingly were just renovated not too long ago. Which means they upgraded their amenities to fit in with the 21st century. OYO Hotel and Casino Las Vegas has a ton of choices when it comes to eating. Snag a burger at the World’s largest Steak ‘n Shake, enjoy gourmet bar food at The Underground Lounge, visit The Porch near the pool for some hummus or fish tacos or hit the Southside Eatery for a quick grab-n-go item.   Reopening date: September 1, 2020

Hampton Inn Las Vegas/North Speedway

Welcome to the Hampton Inn Las Vegas/North Speedway, where old school Vegas meets modern comfort. Plug into the high energy and exhilaration of the Entertainment Capital of the World. Las Vegas is a diverse destination that is hard to define. Hampton Inn Las Vegas/North Speedway is located in the heart of the North Las Vegas Business Park. You’re minutes away from the world-famous Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Nellis Air Force Base, and within a quick drive of downtown Las Vegas.

Hampton Inn and Suites Henderson

Located in beautiful Henderson, the Hampton Inn and Suites Las Vegas – Henderson is the perfect hotel to relax in and is only a short drive from the Las Vegas Strip. With a full-access business center and a meeting room, the Hampton Inn is perfect for the business traveler. But the leisure traveler is sure to enjoy the amenities of Hampton Inn’s rooms. The hotel is located in close proximity to attractions, shopping malls and a sports arena. There is an outdoor pool on site as well as a fitness center.

Sunset Station

THE VIBE: : The city of Henderson, with its neighborhood charm and city limits on which not even locals can always agree, is home to some of the more likable properties in the Las Vegas Valley. Among them is the refreshing Sunset Station. This resort, which primarily caters to locals, is also an affordable hotel for leisure, family and business travelers. WHAT WE LOVE:: Perhaps the biggest appeal of Sunset Station is its proximity to shopping, outlying attractions and chocolate — yes, chocolate. Ethel M Chocolate Factory is just a short drive up Sunset and is full of everything a chocolate lover could imagine, assuming their imagination is pretty chocolate-centric. Galleria at Sunset mall is just across the street featuring a wide variety of stores from department to demented. Just be careful crossing Sunset Road; it’s full of Las Vegas drivers. And Sunset Station also makes for a good base when exploring Lake Mead and Hoover Dam as it’s further east than most properties and has easy access to the 95 (U.S. Highway 95). GOOD TO KNOW:: If you’re more the stay in the hotel type, Sunset Station makes up for its distance from the Strip with a variety of entertainment options like Club Madrid, a state-of-the-art lounge that seats 500 people, or the beautiful outdoor Sunset Amphitheater. Sunset Station also boasts a 13-screen cinema with an IMAX theater, the stylish Strike Zone Bowling Center with 72 lanes and featuring cosmic bowling at night and the Kingpin Lounge (where you can play pool) and a seasonal outdoor pool with a hot tub and cabanas. For the little ones, Kids Quest provides a safe, professionally supervised facility for children with indoor play areas, interactive games, quiet zones and a variety of activities. Kids Quest gives the adults the opportunity to indulge in some fine dining or drinks. The Sonoma Cellar Steakhouse is known for both its aged, prime cuts of beef and its modern California cuisine. At Pasta Cucina, you can enjoy old-style Italian classics in a spectacular garden setting. For a casual meal at any time of day, there’s the Grand Café. It’s easy to find — just look for the restored Orenstein & Koppel #791 locomotive. Plus, guests can indulge in fresh seafood at the hip Oyster Bar. And if the kids are in tow, try the Feast Buffet or the food court.   The hotel’s artfully designed center bar, called the Gaudi Bar, has a light and airy space with a laid-back vibe. Surrounded by stained glass in interesting curves, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to one of famed architect Antoni Gaudí’s buildings in Spain. There are plenty of other places to sip on cocktails and converse at Sunset Station — including the Martini Bar, Rosalita’s Cantina, the Seville Bar and the Bullfighter’s Bar. INSIDER TIP:: If you’re looking to be in the center of the excitement, the Strip might be a better bet. But if you’re looking for a great hotel that reminds you Las Vegas, or at least Henderson, is a real city with real people, Sunset Station is a welcome example of how interesting the whole city can be.

Santa Fe Station

THE VIBE: : Tucked along Rancho Drive just off the U.S. 95, known locally as Rancho Drive just off the U.S. 95, Santa Fe Station is one of Las Vegas’ neighborhood casinos. It may be about a 25-minute drive from the Strip and downtown, but a stay here also puts you in the vicinity of such breathtaking natural attractions as Red Rock Canyon and Mount Charleston. WHAT WE LOVE: : If you were hoping to escape the culinary temptations of the Strip, you’re probably out of luck. Santa Fe Station boasts delicious restaurants. Serving top-notch cuts of meat, The Charcoal Room is one of the city’s steakhouses. Cabo Mexican Restaurant offers authentic Mexican cuisine, while the 24-hour Grand Café prepares breakfast, lunch, dinner and all snacks imaginable in between. There’s also a buffet with numerous live-action cooking stations.  There are plenty of ways to entertain yourself at Santa Fe Station — and not just the kind that involve staying in your room watching TV. In addition to an outdoor swimming pool with a hot tub, you can see a movie at the 16-screen multiplex, pretend you know how to do that spin move the pros do on one of the 60 lanes in the state-of-the-art bowling center or catch a show in the 510-seat Chrome Showroom. WHAT WE LOVE: : A resort to escape from everyday life (for an affordable price), Santa Fe Station also allows you to experience Vegas’ gaming scene and be close to recreational opportunities at the same time. INSIDER TIP:: Sit back and relax in a plush booth at the 4949 Lounge and if you’re not allowed in because you’re a child, you can still participate in activities of all kinds in the professionally supervised Kids Quest facility.


Located at the west end of the Fremont Street Experience, downtown’s iconic Plaza Las Vegas has been a Sin City staple for more than 40 years. Built in 1971 on land that formerly held the Union Pacific Railroad Station, the Plaza once stood out for being the only hotel in history with an in-house railroad ticket office. But we’ll always remember the Plaza best for the movies its starred in — “Diamonds Are Forever,” “The Stand,” “Casino” and even ” Back to the Future Part II” (Biff’s hotel is a digitally manipulated Plaza). The hotel’s design, entrance with it’s cavalcade of lights and glass-domed restaurant ooze ’70s cool. Before guests even step foot into the hotel’s lobby, their gaze is lured upward by the canopy of lights that illuminate the Plaza’s main entrance. But better than the allure of the sparkling lights is the mouth-watering food that is served directly above. Located in the circular over-hang that overlooks the heart of downtown, Oscar’s Steakhouse – opened by former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar B. Goodman under the Plaza’s iconic glass dome – is the hotel’s fine dining option. Located adjacent to Oscar’s famous bar, the old Vegas ambiance of the restaurant features all of the expected offerings of a traditional steakhouse… plus the company of some of Oscar’s beautiful “broads.” But if you’re not exactly in the mood for steak and signature cocktails, the Plaza is prepared to please with additional and more casual dining options within the hotel. The farm-style Hash House A Go Go serves filling breakfasts as well as hearty all-day fare. Also avail is Pop Up Pizza because we all know that homemade, hand-tossed Italian pies are simply delicious after a few drinks, and for the grab-and-go type, the Plaza’s food court offers Zaba’s Mexican Grill, Cafelatte, McDonald’s and Subway. And when you’re ready to play, the Plaza’s 80,000-square-foot casino is smaller than the nega-casinos of the Las Vegas Strip but it still boasts more than 500 slot and video poker machines along with table games like craps and blackjack. Additionally, the Plaza is home to the William Hill Race & Sports Book, a poker room with automated PokerPro tables and downtown’s only bingo room…. more fun than downtown’s only train-ticket office, right? And while the Plaza has certainly evolved with the times, the iconic property has remained in sync with its history as it has become known for its classic Vegas-style entertainment. Having hosted many acts over the years, today you can catch a variety of performances from stand-up comedy to game shows. Or, if you’d rather tie the knot Vegas style to get your kicks, the Plaza has an on-site wedding chapel. But as far as downtime goes – that is, downtime from playing all day – guests can take advantage of the resort’s rooftop pool and 24-hour fitness center. Other (albeit less fun) amenities at the Plaza include a self-serve business internet kiosk, 22,000-plus square feet of flexible meeting and convention space, complimentary valet service and a self-parking garage. For those looking to immerse themselves in the excitement of downtown Las Vegas while staying and playing in a legendary Las Vegas property, the Plaza hotel has everything you will need for a memorable and exciting Las Vegas vacation.  

Paris Las Vegas

The “City of Light” meets the city of sin at Paris Las Vegas. The centrally-located, Parisian-themed hotel boasts a replica Eiffel Tower, a mock Arc de Triomphe and French restaurants mixed with Las Vegas shows and nightclub. The vibe: Charming, France without the language barrier, faux French architecture What we love: Location, location, location. Paris is centrally located right in the heart of the Strip near Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road, which means it’s really easy to walk to several other tourist attractions and major hotels nearby. Mon Ami Gabi has been a Las Vegas favorite for years and they pioneered the art of outdoor dining on the Strip. The charming French restaurant serves escargots, steak frites, onion soup and offers a nice wine selection, but the real highlight is the outdoor patio overlooking Las Vegas Boulevard. It’s one of the best people-watching spots in town and there’s a great view of the Bellagio Fountains across the street. The Eiffel Tower is one of the world’s most famous landmarks and while Paris Las Vegas’ replica is about half the size of the original, it’s still an impressive attraction. Cross Le Pont Alexandre III, step into the beautiful glass elevator, and ride to the top of the tower, which boasts spectacular views of the Fountains of Bellagio, the Strip and the outlying city.  Temperamental celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has several restaurants around town, but we think his Gordon Ramsay Steak, a London-themed restaurant at Paris Las Vegas, is the best. The signature dish that everyone raves about is the beef Wellington, but if you don’t want anything that extravagant, you can also get Ramsay’s famous fish and chips. Insider tips: Paris and the adjacent Bally’s hotel share a parking garage. The two properties are also connected via a walkway filled with shops so you can easily go back and forth between the two hotels and enjoy the amenities of both. Good to know: Paris Las Vegas really tries to give you an authentic Parisian experience, right down to the cobblestone streets. The uneven flooring that mimics cobblestones throughout the shopping area and parts of the casino can be a bit tricky to walk on – especially if you have your clubbing heels on. What shows and concerts are playing at the Paris? : The Paris Las Vegas has no shows available currently but it has plenty of natural ambiance to enjoy. What is there to do at the Paris?: Catch breathtaking views of the Las Vegas Strip and beyond with a trip to The Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck. What makes the Paris unique?: Standing tall on the Las Vegas skyline is Paris’ signature Eiffel Tower replica and hot air balloon.

New York – New York

A moderately priced and family-friendly hotel on the Strip, New York-New York features the Big Apple’s most iconic symbols plus a roller coaster and plenty of affordable restaurant options. The vibe: Good value, family-friendly, a faux-urban version of New York. What we love: The Village Street Eateries with all their neon sign splendor. Sure, it may be a glorified food court, but they put some serious effort into modeling it after a brownstone-clad neighborhood in Greenwich Village.  Also, you’re a hop, skip and a jump away from The Park, located between the hotel and Park MGM. The Park’s outdoor promenade features restaurants, trees and shade structures and the 40-foot-tall Bliss Dance statue. Catching a concert? The T-Mobile Arena is also a short walk away.  Insider tips: That subway rumbling you feel is actually the Big Apple Coaster barreling above the casino. This can pose a problem if you’re an early-to-bed/early-to-rise kind of person, so make sure to ask for a room that isn’t next to the roller coaster or it could be 12:00 to 11 p.m. before you get some peace and quiet. If you’re a real New Yorker, you won’t even notice the screaming. Good to know: Where do we begin with the parking? While it may seem easily accessible from the freeway, depending on the direction you’re coming from, you may have to go down to the Strip and pass the front of the property before you can even get to the parking garage.  Also, all hotel rooms are non-smoking. If you light up, be prepared to pay a cleaning fee for rooms and a cleaning fee for suites upon checkout. Your best bet is to smoke in designated areas, like the hotel’s casino or bars. 

MGM Grand

If you could stuff all of Vegas under one roof, MGM Grand is big enough to accommodate that. The vibe: Infinitesimally large, diverse offerings to satisfy every type of visitor, show-rific What we love: You don’t have to leave the hotel to experience many of the “bests” of Vegas. MGM Grand is home to some of the world’s top restaurants along with a stable of celebrity chefs. (Anyone heard of Wolfgang Puck, Tom Colicchio and Emeril Lagasse?)  Insider tips: The best way to avoid the long taxi line – which can stretch around the porte cochere on a busy night – is to take the Las Vegas Monorail. Good to know: A reality about staying at MGM Grand is that you’ll do a lot of walking. You could easily rack up several miles on your Fitbit each day just by going from your room to the pool, restaurants and bars. (For those among us who are more lethargic, this may be the one time you request a room near the elevator bank.) Keep in mind every hotel room is non-smoking. Don’t risk it – that’s a pricey cleaning fee at checkout. Save yourself the trouble and smoke in designated areas only. What shows and concerts are playing at MGM Grand?: Shows playing at MGM Grand include Kà, Jabbawockeez, David Copperfield, Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club and concerts at MGM Grand Garden Arena. What is there to do at MGM Grand?: Enjoy the interactive Virtual Reality, tee up at TopGolf, or may the odds be ever in your favor in The Hunger Games: The Exhibition What makes MGM Grand unique?: MGM Grand is one of the largest hotels on the Las Vegas Strip with more than 4,997 hotel rooms.

Grand Celebration Picnic Landing

Embark on an unforgettable, narrated helicopter flight to the floor of the Grand Canyon in complete luxury. Your EC-130 helicopter tour includes sights of Boulder City, Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, as well as extinct volcanoes. As your flight nears the Grand Canyon, enjoy spectacular views of the volcanic Black Mountains, Grapevine Mesa and then across the Grand Wash Cliffs.  Upon landing, you’ll have time to walk around, explore ancient Hualapai lands and enjoy a picnic lunch.   Total flight time is approximately one hour, 10 minutes.  For each guest weighing more than 300 pounds, an adjacent empty seat is required to safely balance the aircraft. Tour company will charge a reduced rate for the adjacent seat at the time of check-in.

Treasure Island – TI Hotel & Casino, a Radisson Hotel

Home to “Mystère,” the longest running Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas, Treasure Island has shed its “Ahoy, matey!” attitude for a more contemporary outlook while blending a great location with mid-range pricing, shops and restaurants. The vibe: Conveniently placed and more contemporary than seafaring with good, solid rooms.  What we love: Location, location, location. Like the real estate mantra, this is what you get when you stay here – and it’s hard to beat. Treasure Island is the affordable option in a sea of five-star resorts (sitting just across the street are Wynn Las Vegas, Encore, The Venetian and The Palazzo). Treasure Island is also convenient to shopping (well hello there neighbor…Fashion Show mall) and other hot stuff like The Mirage’s erupting volcano. There’s a little bit of country in all of us, so you won’t have to be a country music fan to have a great time at Gilley’s Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Q. You’ll get your kicks line dancing, listening to live bands or just checking out the gorgeous Gilley Girls in their trademark chaps. After you’ve knocked back a few beers to fortify your courage, hop in the saddle of the mechanical bull.    Insider tips: If you’re coming to Treasure Island by car to see “Mystère,” it’s easiest to self-park because the entrance from the garage leads directly to the box office and theater. Park on level three where there’s a covered walkway that goes right into the resort. Although entering is no sweat, be forewarned because when the show lets out there’s a traffic jam of people in this area. At T.I., a major retail center literally awaits on each corner. Head through the sports book and out to Spring Mountain Road, where the escalator and pedestrian bridge will take you directly to the Fashion Show mall. On the other two corners on the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard, you’ll find the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo and the Esplanades at Wynn and Encore. Treasure Island is connected to The Mirage by a free tram (a great way to save your legs and some cash). Good to know: If you’re arriving at peak check-in times (usually between the hours of 4 and 7 p.m.), be prepared to wait. Lines are often long at checkout time too. So unless you have an issue or need a receipt, it’s best to check out electronically. Treasure Island isn’t an upscale hotel brand so you won’t find celebrity chefs or high-end boutiques on the premises. But that doesn’t matter because all of those things are within walking distance. What shows and concerts are playing at Treasure Island?: Shows at Treasure Island include: Mystère by Cirque du Soleil and Drag Brunch at Senor Frog’s. What is there to do at Treasure Island?: Kids big and small will enjoy the interactive superhero attraction at Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. What makes Treasure Island unique?: The uniquely versitile Señor Frogs second story patio has become a central party hotspot. Oh, and the big pirate ship out front…we don’t have too many in the modern-day desert.

Sams Town

Located in an area dubbed the “Boulder Strip,” Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall is situated about 15 minutes from the Strip on the corner of Flamingo Road and Boulder Highway. If you’re not familiar with Vegas those cross streets probably mean nothing to you, so we’ll just say it’s on the East side of the city, closer to Clark County Wetlands Park and Sam Boyd Stadium than it is to the Las Vegas Strip. This is not the hotel for someone looking to stroll the Strip every night. This is where nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts will find their zen. Mystic Falls Park, located at the center of the resort, is a 25,000-square-foot atrium filled with trees, flowers, cobblestone paths, brooks and a waterfall. At night, you can catch the free “Sunset Stampede” show boasting lasers, lights, dancing fountains and music recorded by the Indianapolis Philharmonic Orchestra. For the holidays, the park is transformed into a winter wonderland. Even animated displays of penguins and beavers are set up. It sounds like we’re messing with you on that last part, but you’ll have to stay there during the holidays to see for yourself. Once you’ve had your fill of nature for the day, check out a concert or other entertainment at Sam’s Town Live, or head to Roxy’s Lounge where live bands take the stage nightly. All the latest movies are shown at the 18-screen Century Theatres. Plus, there’s a world-class, 56-lane bowling center that comes complete with its own pro shop, snack bar and video arcade. Basically if you’re tired, it’s raining or you’re that one person in every group who hates what everyone else wants to do, Sam’s Town has plenty of indoor activities to fill your time before bed, while you wait for the weather to clear or while you do everything possible to avoid hanging out with your family. After a long day of indoor/outdoor adventures, either real or imagined, The Angry Butcher is the place for some of the West’s biggest and best steaks. You’ll enjoy filling your belly with chicken, ribs, salmon and loads of fresh vegetables in the restaurant’s lodge-like setting. If big portions are your thing, head over to the Firelight Buffet. Meat eaters will love the open rotisseries and carving stations, and on Friday nights there’s a seafood feast that includes snow crab legs. Clearly the cuisine at this quasi-cowboy casino caters to carnivores, and vegetarians are left to subsist on Sbarro and alliteration; but there’s still Calamity Jane’s Ice Cream Parlor. Everyone loves ice cream, right? Complete with a refreshing outdoor pool, shuttle service to the Strip and downtown Las Vegas, Gatsby’s Salon, an RV park and 30,000 square feet of meeting facilities, Sam’s Town is a western-themed hotel packed with adventure for the young, the young-at-heart and the people who are clearly neither but will never admit it. 

Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel

Renaissance Las Vegas is just moments from the Strip and offers unmatched features. Completely modern, these rooms come with oversized and plush beds along with flat-screen televisions, coffee/tea makers and free WiFi. During your stay, take advantage of the on-site fitness center and business facilities. Feel free to soak up some sun near the outdoor swimming pool or get caught up on chores with the on-site laundry and dry-cleaning services. You’ll also enjoy the award-winning meals being prepared for you inside ENVY Steakhouse. Breakfast, a bar and room service are also available at the property. Swing by Renaissance Las Vegas to learn more information.

Boulder Station

Boulder Station is a one-stop shop. Here you’ll find everything you need under one roof: affordable rooms, gambling, dining, live entertainment, movies and bars. This off-Strip property is about seven miles from McCarran International Airport, near the corner of Boulder Highway and Desert Inn Road. It’s conveniently located near U.S. 95, which offers easy access to other areas of Las Vegas especially downtown. Locals often come here to gamble at the nearly 3,000 slot and video poker machines. There’s also a 300-seat race and sports book and a bingo hall. There’s always something entertaining happening in the 750-seat Railhead, a venue that features live acts ranging from nationally known bands and comedians to local tribute artists. Boulder Station has a bar for just about any scene you might be into. Beer lovers can hit up the Brewers Bar for more than 12 different brews on tap. If premium cigars and top-shelf liquor is your thing, the Havana Cigar Bar & Lounge is for you. Kixx Bar has a little bit of everything – live music on weekends, an extensive martini menu, fine wines, margaritas and $2 beer and shot specials. And sports fans can enjoy happy hour specials and drinks while watching their favorite games at the Sports Bar. Maybe nightlife isn’t your thing but you still want an evening out. Movie fans can catch a flick at the 11-screen Regal Cinemas. Plus, parents who want to some spend some time alone together can drop their children off at Kids Quest — where they’re guaranteed to have a blast in a professionally supervised setting. Everyone likes to eat and Boulder Station has a restaurant to satisfy every craving. Pasta Cucina offers Italian classics. For an elegant steakhouse experience, there’s The Broiler and for a more casual bite to eat, head to the Grand Café, a 24-hour eatery that serves hearty cuisine including skillet breakfasts, refreshing salads and an unbeatable $9.99 prime rib special. If you can’t decide on one type of food, why not go to the Feast Buffet where you can get a huge variety of cuisine?  And if you’re in a hurry you can stop by Slices Pizzeria, Viva Salsa or the food court (Burger King, Winchell’s, Subway and Starbucks).

Planet Hollywood

With a veneer of Hollywood glitz, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino is home to multiple headliners and the Miracle Mile Shops as well as a slew of cool restaurants and rockin’ bars. The vibe: Hollywood reborn in Sin City, a dazzling disco-lit world, middle of the road What we love: When you check in, you’ll have to hold back the urge to yell “Party at the disco!” This is because you’ll spot long, glittering chandeliers alongside the escalator as you descend into the lobby. Combined with a giant crystal-laden ball that hangs overhead and the color-changing LED lights behind the front desk, the whole scene feels like something out of the movie “Saturday Night Fever.” There’s nothing like hanging 10 and doing kickflips in a wave machine. The Strip’s first-ever FlowRider Wave-in-a-Box Double at Planet Hollywood is totally rad.  Zappos Theater inhabits a space that has been retrofitted, but remains one of the great concert venues in town. Headlined by a few notable names, it’s got a massive LED wall behind the stage, a sound system with power and a dance floor. So seeing a show here is a sensory overload that’s sure to impress.   Insider tips: Get the largest slice of pizza on the Strip at Pin-Up Pizza. Located along the resort’s Strip-facing façade, each pie made here uses loads of dough and measures 30 inches in diameter. For all you non-mathematical types, that means each slice is 15 inches long and 6 inches wide. If you prefer that your cards be dealt to you by ladies in lingerie (or scantily clad men with bulging biceps), then head to the Pleasure Pit on the casino floor. It has raised stages for go-go dancers as well as 11 tables where you can play a variety of games like blackjack, three-card poker, roulette and Big Six. So the Extra Lounge, located near the hotel’s front entrance, is billed as the spot where the correspondents (yes, that includes hunky Mario Lopez) and crew of the NBC entertainment news TV show “Extra” hang out whenever they’re in town. Yeah, that may have happened in the years before the Great Recession hacked everybody’s business travel budgets. But that’s OK. We still like you Extra Lounge. Good to know: Some of the rooms feel dated — not exactly fit for the A-List, but also not terrible considering the mid-range price and the resort’s right-in-the-middle-of-everything location. Planet Hollywood opened in 2007 (previous to that it was the “new” Aladdin, which was built in 2000). You should expect some wear and tear in carpeting and various fixtures. The base-level rooms at Planet Hollywood don’t come with coffee makers or fridges, but most of them do have 42-inch plasma TVs. If it’s kitchen amenities you desire, you’ll have to upgrade to one of the larger suites. It’s loud in the casino. Very loud. You’ll hear rockin’ music pumping overhead round the clock — which is part of the resort’s party vibe. You’ll often hear us grumble about a hotel because the self-parking garage isn’t located close to the check-in area. Well, at Planet Hollywood getting to the lobby is an epic voyage that not only involves traversing a long distance but going up and down multiple floors. Take it from us, when you arrive head straight to the valet if you’ve brought your own car. Better yet, drop your significant other or travel partners off to check in while you self-park, walk through the Miracle Mile Shops and pick up drinks — by the time you get to them, they’ll probably have reached the front desk and you can all raise a toast to Vegas.

Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa

THE VIBE: : Green Valley Ranch is perfect for people who are coming to Las Vegas but don’t want to be immersed in the city’s round-the-clock vibe. Located in Henderson, this elegant resort provides a retreat far from the typical tourist crowds yet it’s still close to the Las Vegas Strip and in the vicinity of several golf courses, cultural attractions and wonderful shopping opportunities. Prominently positioned on eight lush acres, the resort’s architecture and surrounding elements offer the feeling of a Mediterranean villa. The lobby has an elegant ambiance akin to European manor houses of centuries past. So basically staying at Green Valley Ranch is like traveling around the world. Well…not quite but hey, we like to pretend. GOOD TO KNOW:: For gamblers, Green Valley Ranch is home to a 16-seat live keno lounge, an action-packed race and sports book, more than 55 table games and 2,200 slot and video poker machines in addition to a 22-table poker room and a 400-seat bingo hall. WHY WE LOVE IT:: With sweet dreams in mind, the resort’s rooms and suites are located in an eight-floor tower — far away from the busy casino for that much needed peace and quiet time.  And since we know a thing or two about drinking, we will happily point you to the resort’s Drop Bar – a modern watering (or, er… alcohol-ing?) hole that boasts a chic vibe and doesn’t believe in empty glasses.  But there are other great things to do at Green Valley Ranch when you are not drinking. We like to soak up our booze with incredible food from the hotel’s restaurants or from The District at Green Valley Ranch, located just steps outside of the hotel’s front entrance. Within the resort is the variety of dining options including the finest in gastronomy at Hank’s, a steakhouse known for its impeccable service and high-quality prime cuts of beef. Another favorite among guests is Tides Oyster Bar, where the seafood is fresh and served with New Orleans spirit. For more casual meals, stop by Pizza Rock by Tony Gemignani, the Feast Buffet or the Grand Café, which is open 24 hours or stop by the fast food outlets in the food court. For shoppers, The District at Green Valley Ranch, an outdoor, urban-style retail and dining complex, is just a few steps from the hotel’s front entrance and is certainly fit for any shopper.  But if your shopping agenda is in the major leagues and you’re looking to completely submerge yourself in the motherland of retail (or otherwise known as the Strip’s Fashion Show Mall), the resort provides a complimentary shuttle to guests with service offered to and from Mandalay Bay on the Strip as well as McCarran International Airport. But when the time comes for relaxing, there is no better place to do that than at the resort’s stunning pools. In the property’s spacious backyard, there is one pool and Jacuzzi for all guests to use while other areas like The Pond and The Backyard, which has an incredible sand bottom — are for VIPs and special events. Featuring private cabanas, a poolside café and a Mediterranean-style lounge the upbeat atmosphere is also perfect for outdoor concerts and pool parties during the spring and summer months.   Whoever spread the rumor that off the Strip means out of the fun is full of bologna… or probably booze… because the only thing short in a Vegas vacation at Green Valley Ranch are the waiting lines.    INSIDER TIP:: Year-round pampering can be enjoyed in The Spa at Green Valley Ranch… actually according to us, a visit to the spa is a requirement. Equipped with an indoor lap pool, a steam room and a gym this lavish facility offers a variety of delightful experiences in addition to a menu of massages and body treatments — like the Watermelon Sugar Scrub, an exfoliating treatment that’s sure to leave you feeling refreshed.  

Arizona Charlie’s Boulder

Arizona Charlie’s Boulder may be a bit off the beaten path, but the hotel offers affordable rates, bargain dining and all of the gaming you’d find in a major hotel. Arizona Charlie’s Boulder is a small property located about 10 miles from the Strip and McCarran Airport on Boulder Highway on the east side of Las Vegas. It’s ideal for those wanting to stay away from the crowds on the Strip or stopping in Vegas on their way to or from Arizona. This is also one of the few Vegas hotels to still offer an RV park. Despite its smaller size, the casino still has plenty of ways for you to try to win big. Place a bet on your favorite team in the race and sports book and then sit back in one of 16 armchairs to watch the action. There are also table games, slot machines and video poker machines. And get your daubers ready for the 24-hour bingo room. Arizona Charlie’s Boulder serves up a variety of dining options. Stop in the Sourdough Cafe for their famous steak and eggs and for other affordable meals. Pretty much everything on the menu is under $15. For a steakhouse experience head to Yukon Grille where you’ll find fresh seafood, filet mignon, rotisserie duck, rack of lamb and more. The Charlie’s Market Buffet boasts a large dining room and a buffet packed with seafood, pastas, prime rib, salads and desserts. If you’re in a hurry, grab a sandwich and specialty coffee at Charlie’s Cheesesteak Deli. While Arizona Charlie’s doesn’t have any crazy nightclubs there’s the Elbow Creek Bar where you can get a good drink and the Palace Grand Lounge where you can catch live music. The hotel is ideal for people traveling with recreational vehicles. It has an adjacent RV park with more than 200 spaces of all sizes. There’s also a clubhouse with a large TV, a pool table, fitness equipment and laundry facilities.  Arizona Charlie’s also has a swimming pool and hot tub that are open seasonally.
