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

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.

You may dance the night away in Vegas, but you’ll still marvel at the moves at the Fountains at Bellagio. These fountains are simply breathtaking. When I’m in traffic on the Strip, this is the one spot where I don’t mind being stuck. And whenever I have visitors in town, it’s one of the coolest attractions to take […]

Take a sweet trip through Lover’s Lane

Take a sweet trip through Lover’s Lane

It’s hard to visit places that are free these days, let alone romantic. So you can only imagine how happyI was to hear that the Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Desert Botanical Gardens was going to do something to celebrate Valentine’s Day. If you’re a fan of Ethel’s cactus garden holiday lights display, then this is […]
