Holidays for the locals

You don’t have to be a Sherlock Holmes or Inspector Gadget to know that a lot of things to do in Las Vegas are geared towards tourists. But as Las Vegas locals, we like to do things too and we’re not a bunch of cotton headed ninny muggins (well, most of…

Why it’s never the right time to travel to Las Vegas

It’s another Joe Schmoe Tuesday, and once again you’re sitting at your desk daydreaming about your next vacation. Then, it suddenly becomes a nightmare. You think to yourself, “I have bills to pay,” “What If I miss meeting my soulmate when I’m gone” and the uje, “Who would go with…

Roadside attractions in Vegas

It’s safe to say that Vegas, by definition, could be considered its own roadside attraction. It’s in the middle of nowhere, not all that easy to get to and definitely a bit of an oddball. The truth is, we can’t really use the traditional definition so we’ve scoured the city…

Head out on the E.T. Highway

  Boom, boom. The sonic boom collides with the eardrums like an explosion in the otherwise placid desert air. “Welcome to Rachel,” says resident Ken Langley as he pulls out a fresh cigarette. “You never get used to them. But you stop jumping after awhile.” Rachel, Nev., sits on less…
