So you’ve come to Vegas to celebrate the good ole U.S. of A, have you? Well get ready, because you came to the right place. There’s no such thing as red, white and gloom, and in this town we’ve already started celebrating. Big shock there, huh?

Neon Museum’s La Concha Visitor’s Center one for the history books

Neon Museum’s La Concha Visitor’s Center one for the history books

Something old gets a new title. The retro La Concha visitor’s center at the Neon Museum has just been added to the Nevada State Register of Historic Places. No offense to those born before the ’60s but in Vegas years, this building is downright antique. Built in 1961, this former motel lobby was disassembled and […]

Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef celebrates the big 1-5

Dear Swarovski, please send over a swanky crystal vase (that’s pronounced vaaaahz for all you non-sophisticates out there) because we’re celebrating Shark Reef Aquarium’s 15th anniversary. And in true Vegas fashion, the appropriate thing to do is throw an all-day bash. On Saturday, June 20 the Shark Reef in Mandalay Bay is honoring their big 1-5 by offering […]

Father’s Day the Vegas way

Father’s Day the Vegas way

Step away from the grill, this will NOT be another typical day with your dad. Vegas has just about anything you could ever want to try, see, or eat. So on this Father’s Day, you should treat dad like the man he was before he had to change diapers and wipe regurgitated breakfast off his […]

Off-the-Strip fun for the whole family

Off-the-Strip fun for the whole family

Vegas is a lot like a zoo, filled to the brim with strutting exotic beauties, the supremely loud and sometimes ugly, and things that will just plain leave you scratching your head. Since we’ve spent all this time showing you what you actually can do with your kids in town, we thought we’d go a […]

Family fun on the Las Vegas Strip

Family fun on the Las Vegas Strip

School’s out for summer and you know what that means: Your kids are going to expect a vacation. We might be a playground for adults, but that doesn’t mean we don’t appeal to the underagers. Yeah, their eyes are probably going to pop out of their heads a couple times at the pool, but consider […]

The family-friendly side of downtown Las Vegas

The family-friendly side of downtown Las Vegas

We can’t quite pinpoint when the Fremont Street Experience crossed over to being an adult-only playground. It used to be an OK place to take your kids to enjoy the light show and concerts until it became an erotic freak show of nakedness and unlicensed street “performances.” But that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of other family-friendly […]

Bellagio Conservatory brings underwater life to the Strip

Bellagio Conservatory brings underwater life to the Strip

Unda da sea. If “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” met “Finding Nemo” and gave birth to “The Little Mermaid,” it would look like the summer exhibit at the Bellagio Conservatory. Just before the mercury rises to a scorching 426 degrees per usual Vegas summer heat, they have given us all a little something to look […]

Gondoliering 101 at The Venetian Las Vegas

Gondoliering 101 at The Venetian Las Vegas

Normally, when I hear glug glug glug, it’s because I’ve poured myself an obscenely large glass of wine. But in this case, it was the sound my body made as it sank into the 11-foot-deep lagoon at the Venetian. Nope, I wasn’t under the influence; I was attending Gondolier University. And while jumping into the water […]
