Take a hike in Sin City

Take a hike in Sin City

Mother Nature can be a total show-off, and there’s no better place to witness her strutting her stuff than the outskirts of the Vegas valley. If you can peel yourself away from the casinos long enough, we highly recommend spending a few hours sweating out last night’s sins while taking…

Discovering Lake Mead

I know what you’re thinking; you see that sketchy bath tub ring around Lake Mead and say to yourself: There’s probably not a lot going on out there. WRONG PLAYA. That couldn’t be further from the truth. We may be in the desert, but we sure know how to make…

Behind the scenes at Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef Aquarium with our Vegas Insiders

There’s a reason the whole country is obsessed with Shark Week, shark attacks, Jaws and everything else shark-related. It’s because they’re superawesomelymegabadassterrific, duh. So much so that the Mandalay Bay named their Shark Reef Aquarium after them (ok so technically this is speculation, but it totally seems legit). Shark Reef has…

Picasso seduces Vegas at the Bellagio

When you fall in love with an artist, you never really know how you’ll be portrayed. If you’re Françoise Gilot, you pretty much hit the jackpot, because your portrait is currently hanging on the wall of the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art. Luckily for her, she was having a great…
How to beat the Vegas summer heat

How to beat the Vegas summer heat

“Sure, Vegas is hot but it’s a dry heat.” Don’t you just love when people say that? Like 105 degrees is somehow not HOT. Just because we don’t have much humidity in the desert, doesn’t mean we don’t need to find ingenious ways to keep cool. We had our own version…

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…

Must Dos this weekend in Vegas: June 19 – 21, 2015

Hold onto your party hats because it’ll be a weekend chock-full of celebrations. Celebrating dear old dad, your favorite cartoon characters, the fact that you love beer, and last but not least, that fact that you’re still breathing. Of course, the last one is totally contingent upon whether or not…
