We all know the line, right? “What happens in Vegas, STAYS in Vegas.” But, there may be people out there unfamiliar with what Las Vegas is. Las Vegas is the ultimate destination if you want to do some partying, either alone or with friends or family.
The phrase “the city that never sleeps” is often applied to New York but is just as applicable to Las Vegas. Why? Simple, you can find anything you want at any time. But what is there to DO in Las Vegas, I hear you ask.
The short answer here is: it depends. The longer answer is, whatever you’d like to do. Naturally, it all depends on what you’ve come to Las Vegas to do. Sure there are the casinos and innumerable clubs and bars. But what if you’re going on vacation with your family?
Well, you’ll be pleased to know you’ve got a LOT of choice. For instance if you want to see a very different, intriguing and down right fun show, you can take a look at the world famous Blue Man Group (remember those Intel ads?), as of this writing playing at the Venetian on the Las Vegas Strip. This is family style entertainment. Another option is Lê Reve at the Wynn which is performed in a domed theater and is the only aquatic show in Las Vegas.
The beauty of Las Vegas is that there is something to do for the whole family, regardless of interest. Want to shop? Check out the Boulevard Mall, Miracle Mile Shops or the Forum Shops At Caesars. Each offers a wealth of vendors, boutiques, specialty shops and more.
Or if you’d prefer some nightlife, you can check out Cleopatra’s Bar, the Privé or the Ghost Bar, which is set high above Las Vegas, and is a indoor-outdoor lounge with sky deck on the 55th floor of the Palms Casino Resort. The lounge gets its name from from 30 foot ghost shaped rotating soffit that hangs above.
If you’re interested in checking out the Grand Canyon or the Hoover Dam, there are also many different packages one can pick. This can be a nice day excursion from the fun, but busy city.
Got a music fan in the family? Las Vegas has you covered there too, from rockers like Air Supply and Fallout Boy, to pioneers of the industry such as Elton John, and yes even Britney Spears, whatever style of music you’re into, odds are they’re playing in Vegas.
If you want to do some serious relaxing, a spa is the way to go. There are many choices from the Ritz-Carlton Spa to the Spa Costa del Sur, each with their own amenities and specialties. For example, the Ritz-Carlton focuses on treatments that address the effects of the high desert sun, while Spa Costa del Sur focuses on simplicity in relaxation from cascading waterfall showers to stone fireplaces.
