Red Rocks

Less than an hour from the strip you can immerse yourself in the beauty of the Mojave Desert at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The brightly colored rocks, true in color to their name, are strewn with more than 30 miles of hiking trails, guided horseback riding, rock climbing and a 13-mile scenic drive with lookout points offering amazing views of the desert and plenty of Kodak moments.

VIP Treatment

First stop after checking in to your hotel should be the concierge desk, especially if you are in town over a weekend. Most times they can get you into exclusive areas, like the VIP part of such hotspots like Voodoo Steak and Lounge in the Rio.

Sin City Nightlife

Team Work

In addition to delivering your drink in the most creative way, flair bartenders at Harrahs' Carnival Court Bar and Grill are likely the friendliest staff you will meet in Las Vegas. But, if you want what happens in Vegas to stay in Vegas, watch who you choose to talk to on the phone while you're there. Some of the bartenders have been know to jump on a cell phone and say hello to whoever you are talking to.

Party Like Celebs

Check out major hotspots like Pure, The Bank (pictured here) and Ghost Bar for bragging rights and for a chance to snag a glimpse at celebrities like George Clooney. 

Hotels on the Strip

Staying at a hotel on located directly on the Las Vegas strip can save money by eliminating cab fees. Plus, some hotel concierge can help get you into the hottest shows and clubs at discounted prices.

Catch Some Rays

Some Vegas pools can outshine night-time hotspots in terms of partying, but if you want to spend a relaxing day at the pool check out the Luxor and make sure to try one of their perfectly-made margaritas.

The Fremont Street Experience is old-style Vegas at its best. You will find the legendary Golden Nugget and get a glimpse of what it was like years ago when 99 cent shrimp cocktails ruled the restaurants.
