Top Things to Do in Las Vegas 2017

By at July 15, 2017 | 12:04 am | 0 Comment

Las Vegas attractions, Top 10 must see things in Las Vegas recommended by local tour guides. There is one activity that is an almost certainty; gambling. But what can you do when you’re not being hypnotized by video poker machines or deciding whether to hit or stay on a blackjack hand?

You can do some sightseeing, both in town and out of town. It’s easy to spend an entire day exploring the sights along the Strip, from the impressive Stratosphere (extra points if you ride one of its thrill rides at the top, check out  ) to the more sedate Bellagio Fountains. Take a drive out of town to see the historic Hoover Dam, or hike over the red sandstone in Red Rock Canyon.  Las Vegas isn’t the only thing in the Mojave Desert, and you’ll find options to explore and discover Vegas at where there are plenty of things that can take you on a day trip into rugged and beautiful terrain. If those suggestions leave you cold, you can always check into one of the many shows on the Strip.

Las Vegas attracts world-class entertainers and shows, giving visitors the chance to see comedians, singers, and production shows like one of the Cirque du Soleil shows.

  1. Fountains of Bellagio,

The Fountains of Bellagio has become an iconic part of Las Vegas. Its dancing, swaying waters draw a crowd every time they go off. Streams of water shoot into the air dissipate into a mist and gracefully arch into curves and it is choreographed to music.

  1. Las Vegas Welcome Sign

The most famous landmark of Las Vegas is the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign” on the South entrance to the city, on the South Strip, once known as HWY 91. Known from countless films and TV series, the sign stands since 1959 on a median strip and attracts many daily visitors. It’s all about the neon lighting; the sign is illuminated by fluorescent tubes. This makes it one the oldest, still functioning luminous tube signs in Las Vegas.

  1. Grand Canal, Hotel Venetian

Can’t make it to Venice, Italy, for an authentic gondola ride? Then head to Vegas for a stateside substitute at The Venetian. Travel down Venice’s recreated Grand Canal through streetscapes and past its well-known cafes and shops. When the weather is nice, visitors may prefer taking the outdoor gondola ride to get a different view of Las Vegas. Don’t go without your camera. Also live performances are regularly held at the Grand Canal. The shops within the canal are all held in the Venetian style. The Grand Canal can be visited for free. You have to pay for the gondola ride. Don’t forget to bring cash for tips!

  1. The Strip

The heart of the town is the so-called. “Las Vegas Strip”. This is a road section of Las Vegas Boulevard where the most impressive hotels and attractions can be found. The approximately 6.8 km long Strip starts at Las Vegas Sign and ends at the Stratosphere Tower. World’s most famous hotels on the strip are including the Palazzo, Venetian, Mirage, Caesars Palace, Bellagio and New York – New York. Enjoy the Themed Hotels with their miniature landmarks from around the world, such as the Statue of Liberty, the pyramids or the Eiffel Tower. If only a stroll along the Strip is a unique experience in Las Vegas, especially at Night. Tip: Take the bus for a tour of the Las Vegas Strip, only costs $ 8 for a 24-hour pass.

  1. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

Get out and go for either a hike or just a sightseeing drive at Red Rock Canyon.  Amazing place to see, only 30 mins drive from the Las Vegas Strip.  Directly west of it is Mount Charleston with a height of 3,632 m.

  1. Mirage Volcano

Smoke, fire, and the power of geological forces present themselves every 15 minutes after dusk, accompanied by an original, percussive soundtrack. Stop by and be entertained by the sheer magnitude of the spectacular display. The eruption features 119,000 gallons of water per minute and is situated on three water-covered acres. Don’t get too close or you could be consumed by the “lava” and “flames.” The display is so realistic and engrossing that you can easily lose sight of the fact that this is a man made attraction, with no help given by Mother Nature whatsoever. Another great Las Vegas spectacle!

  1. Eiffel Tower Experience

Here is a great place to see wonderful views of the Las Vegas Strip. It’s at the Paris Hotel and you can’t miss it, it’s the Eiffel Tower, looks the same as in Paris France.  Get a coupon to save you money here,

  1. Stratosphere Tower

It’s one of the tallest buildings west of the Mississippi, but the Stratosphere isn’t satisfied with just being amazingly tall. The Thrill Rides at the top give dare devils a chance to be dangled, dropped, spun, and shot into the air a thousand feet above the street. The view from here is incredible, a fact that the restaurant in the tower, Top of the World, makes good use of the spinning restaurant technology. In addition to a Sky Jump located in the tower three other rides, including a Roller coaster and a tower mast for a freefall, thrill ride only in Las Vegas.

  1. Fremont Street Experience

The Fremont Street Experience is a 450 m long dome that completely covers Fremont Street. The entire street was blocked in this area for motorists. It is now a walking zone.  The highlight of the Fremont Street Experience can be only really appreciated at night.  The entire underside of the dome consists of countless LEDs screen, where in the evenings they offer free light show every hour on top of the hour. So 9pm,10 pm and so on.  Also, make sure you visit the Container Park attraction on East Fremont Street. You will be surprised.

  1. Las Vegas Shows

Visiting Vegas without doing a show when you visit Las Vegas would be just a half trip. There are so many great shows offered. Pick a show based on your interests; magic? Music? Comedy? It’s all there for you! When buying tickets for the shows you should always buy in advance, you will get a discount if you do.  We suggest buying it online to save tome waiting in long lines.  Depending on the show, tickets can cost on average of $50.00 up to $200.00 per show.

Las Vegas Insider Tips:

Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat

The Secret Garden houses absolutely gorgeous big cats, including panthers, white lions, leopards, and the white tigers that Siegfried and Roy have made famous. The habitat is festooned with tropical foliage, creating an inviting natural atmosphere for the felines. There’s also a 2 million gallon aquarium that’s home to several bottlenose dolphins, an artificial coral reef, and numerous fish. Ideal for families and animal lovers who like to interact with the animals.

Insider Tip: Free Circus Acts Flying through the air with the greatest of ease, these circus acts take center ring over the main casino of Circus Circus. The ringmaster announces clowns, jugglers, and many others. Carnival games take place on the midway, which is on the mezzanine, every half hour. Bring the kids, they will love it.

Thanksgiving in Las Vegas 2016, things to do!

By at November 2, 2016 | 7:35 pm | 0 Comment

Las Vegas has something for everyone, from casino gaming to outstanding hikes close to Las Vegas. Maybe if you are lucky, there will be snow in Lee Canyon and you can go snow skiing near Las Vegas. Here are a few suggestions from a local Las Vegas Tour-guide. If you have kids, we strongly suggest you go to Container Park in Downtown Las Vegas.

Black Friday Shopping in Las Vegas

Why not enjoy some major shopping after Thanksgiving with a visit to the outstanding Outlet Shopping Center North.

Tour the Valley of Fire or Red Rock Canyon, both easy drives from Las Vegas. Or you can book a tour with a local company and get the full experience.

This time of year is an excellent time to visit, too, because you’re avoiding summer crowds. It could be a bit chilly, but your tour bus will be heated and you can always pop on a scarf when you get out to take pictures.

Visit the Hoover Dam

If you’re looking for more outdoorsy fun while in Vegas, a tour of the Hoover Dam is an excellent option.

Visit this National Historic Landmark and learn all about its history, how it was built, and the future we envision for it.

You can explore their many exhibit spaces, see an informative film, take tons of photos, and much more. If you’re interested in taking the power plant tour, there’s a small upgrade fee of $30.00 but totally worth it!

Downtown Container Park Downtown Old Las Vegas

Container Park

If you want to avoid the more commercial parts of Las Vegas in search of that special gift, then head to the lovely Downtown Container Park for some unique shopping opportunities and tons of holiday fun.

The kids will love Santa’s “surprise” arrival aboard a local fire truck, and you’ll love the free parking (a tough thing to find in Vegas). You can even build your own ornament and help decorate the Container Park tree.

Make a whole day of it and stay in the afternoon to build your own train and in the evening for a special screening of The Polar Express. Nice thing is, admission to the Downtown Container Park is free.

Death Valley’s 2016 Wildflower ‘Super Bloom’

By at February 27, 2016 | 4:52 pm | 0 Comment

Death Valley, Calif., one of the hottest places in the world, is in bloom with more than 20 species of colorful desert wildflowers.

In a statement, the National Park Service says that after unusually
strong storms and flash floods last October, “the current flower display is the best the park has experienced in a decade.”

Some visitors are calling it a “super bloom.”

“These areas that are normally just rock, just soil, just barren, not
even shrubs — they’re filled with life. Death Valley really does go from being a valley of death to a valley of life,” says Van Valkenburg.

That harsh landscape is covered in seeds, and “when you get the perfect conditions, the perfect storm, so to speak — those seeds could all sprout at once,” Van Valkenberg says.

The park notes previous “super blooms” in 1998 and 2005 happened during El Nino years like this one. Park officials explain: “El Nino can affect Death Valley by shifting the track of winter and spring storms into the area, increasing rainfall during flower season.”

Book a day tour from Las Vegas, you will be amazed!


Grand Canyon South or West Rim?

By at November 2, 2015 | 9:39 pm | 0 Comment

Grand Canyon West or South Rims, which is better?

They’re completely different experiences. Some would say the West Rim really isn’t the Grand Canyon. Why? Because It’s a lot more narrow there. The West Rim is completely owned and operated by the Hualapai Indian tribe. The only way to see the West Rim is to buy a tour package when you arrive for $50 or more. Then, they scalp you another $30 to go out onto the Skywalk. For that price, you do get unlimited bus rides to several viewpoints and attractions like a western village, a recreated Indian village, and Indian dance performance, and you get lunch. It’s a good 1/2 day worth of entertainment. There are no guard rails or fences there, so you it’s more of a wide-open, natural experience. But, there really is no place or trails to hike down into the canyon. You can take a Helicopter Tour from the West Rim; the package includes flying down to the Rio Colorado River, exploring around and than taking a boat ride on the river. Gives you a great view and experience of being above and down below in the canyon on the river. Take a luxury, guided tour with Detours of Nevada. You get to see the Hoover Dam, Mojave Desert and Joshua Trees. At the same time, learn all about the area. You can book directly with Detours at

The South Rim is a national park. So there are lots of guard rails at the main viewpoints, but still plenty of open canyons as well. There’s a lot more hiking, and places to drive around, more restaurants, gifts shops and galleries, tour buses, etc. Most of the Grand Canyon pictures you see are from the South Rim, or possibly the North Rim.

Difference between West & South Rim

Millions of people visit the Grand Canyon each year, but most are unaware of the differences between the West and South Canyons Rim. Each rim is unique and display wonderful features for visitors each year.

Grand Canyon South

Grand Canyon National Park is the jewel of the American Southwest. It is open year-round and regarded by many as the Grandest of the Canyons. Majestic forests of Ponderosa pines are among the stark differences the South Rim has to offer. Not to mention, most Grand Canyon photographs you have seen in your life time have been of none of other than the Grand Canyon South Rim. It is a sight to reckoned with and is home to Elk, mountain lion, rock squirrels, deer, mule, California condors and lizards. These are among the various species of wild animals that can be seen inside the park for those lucky enough.

Grand Canyon West

Between the entertainment capitol of the world, Las Vegas, and Grand Canyon’s South Rim lies a place known simply as the Grand Canyon West Rim. Here, you’re surrounded by the Tribal Indian reservation of The Hualapai from the ground to the sky. Home of the world famous glass bridge, the Skywalk, the West Rim is not something to be looked down upon. It sees nearly 1 million travelers each year and is a humbling destination for those wanting to see where the Hualapai have called home for hundreds of years. While it’s not as lush as the South Rim, the colors of the West Rim are a sight to be reckoned with, showcasing the result of millions of years of weathering and erosion.


National Parks Near Las Vegas

National Parks Near Las Vegas

In the minds of many people, the words “Las Vegas” and “natural beauty” don’t go together. The city’s kaleidoscope of neon lights isn’t exactly in earth tones. And beyond that, many of the structures that make up the desert metropolis are mock-ups of somewhere else — the Eiffel Tower, the canals of Venice, the New York City skyline. It can all seem a bit unreal. And, let’s face it, that ringing carnival sound of slot machines isn’t exactly like the chirping of birds.

But if find your way out of the air-conditioned casino and into a rental car, you might be surprised what natural wonders you’ll spy. Believe it or not, Las Vegas is within a few hours drive of some of the most uniquely beautiful national parks in the United States. In fact, some naturalists and adventure-seekers skip gambling altogether to venture out into nature’s scenes. The contrast between pristine blue sky and the Nevada desert’s reddish earth is a sight to behold. And Las Vegas is a prime home base for travelers hoping to cycle, climb and hike in California’s more lush landscapes. Let’s find out which parks are within driving distance of Las Vegas.

Sequoia and Kings Canyon

Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park are adjacent to each other across the California border from Las Vegas. They contain earth’s most massive trees, giant sequoias so huge they far surpass the size of any other species.


Yosemite National Park presents a striking change from Las Vegas. It features one of the planet’s greatest concentrations of natural features, including Yosemite Falls, the Mariposa and Merced giant sequoia groves, and the Tuolumne and Merced Rivers.

Joshua Tree

Driving south from Las Vegas takes you to Joshua Tree National Park. The Joshua tree, a member of the lily family, is actually an over-sized yucca.

Death Valley

Just over 100 miles west of Las Vegas is Death Valley National Park, a brutally rugged but beautiful land of extremes. It holds records for the continent’s lowest point (282 feet below sea level) and highest recorded temperature (134 degrees Fahrenheit).

Canyon de Chelly

Canyon de Chelly National Monument is further into Arizona from Las Vegas. Hundreds of years ago the Pueblo built houses into the canyon’s red sandstone walls.

Petrified Forest

Also across the Arizona border from Las Vegas is Petrified Forest National Park. Its 93,532 acres include an amazing display of petrified wood.

Grand Canyon

Directly east of Las Vegas in Arizona is Grand Canyon National Park. Its great expanse and awe-inspiring vistas reveal spectacular desert landscape.

Nevada’s Great Basin National Park lies near Las Vegas. It includes the limestone Lehman Caves, the Wheeler Peak glacier, and Lexington Arch, a natural limestone arch more than six stories tall.

Arches National Park is a timeless landscape of giant stone arches, pinnacles, spires, fins, and windows. You’ll quickly forget the casinos of Las Vegas.

Canyonlands National Park, the other side of Utah from Nevada’s border near Las Vegas, includes spectacular rock formations, canyons, arches, spires, pictograph panels, Puebloan ruins, and desert flora. The area is largely undeveloped.

Capitol Reef National Park, its elevation ranging from 3,900-8,800 feet, is composed of red sandstone cliffs capped with domes of white sandstone. It is in Utah’s slickrock country, almost 400 miles from Las Vegas.

Further from Las Vegas is Bryce Canyon National Park, a 56-square-mile area of colorful cliffs created by erosion. Towering rocks worn to odd, sculptured shapes stand grouped in striking sequences.

Zion National Park, about 150 miles from Las Vegas in Utah, features spectacular canyons and rock formations. They­ resulted from upheavals of the earth and erosion by­ flowing water and frost.


9 Ways To Experience ‘Classic’ Las Vegas

By at May 12, 2015 | 8:06 pm | 0 Comment

9 ways to experience ‘classic’ Las Vegas


When the Riviera Hotel and Casino closed for good last week, the city was a little nostalgic. As the “Rs” were pulled from the door and the “Crazy Girls” butts were removed, Las Vegas lost a major part of its 1950’s history, like the Stardust and New Frontier before it. Las Vegas is about the “Here and Now!” and the future never looked better for all coming to Las Vegas.

Well, when you get to Vegas and want to experience the great things here in Vegas that have direct links to the history of Las Vegas. Go check out the recommended places below.

Eat at the Golden Steer

This steakhouse, tucked away in a slightly off-strip shopping mall at 308 W. Sahara, has been open since 1958. The interior was inspired by the Gold Rush era and has only been redecorated once, but it definitely retains the charm of the days when Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin were regulars. Elvis Presley, Nat King Cole and actress Natalie Wood had also stopped in at some point.

Grab a drink and maybe some swing at the Cosmo

The Chandelier in the center of the Cosmopolitan offers signature drinks bound to take you back in time, like “The Infinite Playlist,” a twist on an Old Fashioned with 12-year aged rum. Every now and then, you might catch a jazz or swing band at the bar. A visit to the Cosmo means an excuse to dress up, too, if you’re so inclined.

Play blackjack at the El Cortez

When the El Cortez was built in 1941 for $245,000, it was the first of its kind on Fremont Street. The hotel-casino passed through a few hands (including Bugsy Siegel) and has been renovated three times, but still brings old-school charm to the ever-changing Fremont East District. The El Cortez has won Best of Las Vegas’ top spot for full pay 2-3 single and double deck blackjack.

Eat at The Peppermill

Often called the “time capsule” restaurant of Vegas, the Peppermill Fireside Lounge is the brightest dark room, lit with pink and purple neon strips and lined with mirrors. It’s been remodeled several times since the 1970s, but its never really changed. The bar-restaurant has a pretty reliable menu, too.

Check out the Mob Museum

Get to know Vegas the way some remember it — as a hot spot for the mob. It’s in downtown, where you can soak in both sides of the story and get your names right. The museum is made up of information collected from the FBI, former police, experts and historians. It was even featured in “CSI” in 2011, when someone tries to assassinate a fictionalized-but not former Mayor Goodman at a fake opening.

Croon at Champagne’s or Dino’s

Dino’s Lounge (1516 S. Las Vegas Blvd) and Champagne’s Cafe (3557 S. Maryland Pkwy) are both contenders (or winners) for best dive bar in Las Vegas every year. Dino’s opened in 1962, after Dino himself reportedly bought a bar from mobster Eddie Trascher. Champagne’s has been around just as long, as shown through its wall hangings of the Rat Pack, the juke box in the corner and velvet walls. Both have lively (actually live) karaoke on the weekends.

Get to know Nevada at the Atomic Testing Museum

This museum, located at 755 E. Flamingo Rd in the same building as Desert Research Institute, is $22 for adults, with multiple discounts offered. You’ll be an atomic bomb expert after strolling through the two-hour self-guided tour and seeing videos, technology, artifacts and even a simulated atmospheric bomb blast.

Drink at Atomic Liquors

Speaking of bombs and Las Vegas history, this bar at 917 Fremont St, toward the end of East Fremont Strret, can almost act as a supplement to the museum. Just a three-minute walk from the El Cortez mentioned above, this is the oldest free-standing bar in Las Vegas. Those in the know claim it was named for a time when people would watch the atomic blasts from the roof of the bar — which features some explosive cocktails.

Visit the Neon Boneyard

What’s more iconic of Las Vegas than the neon? This is the place where those glitzy signs go to die, at 770 Las Vegas Boulevard North. The two-acre area features more than 150 neon signs, including famous ones from imploded hotels. You’ll learn more about classic Vegas during their guided tour than you’d think.
