10 of our favorite Instagram spots in Vegas

Stop acting like you haven’t deliberately staged an Instagram shot. We all have. Whether or not you want to admit it, it doesn’t change the fact that we all cry a little inside when our favorite pics don’t get #InstaLove. There are only a handful of cities that slay social…
Weird & wacky: The statuesque side of Vegas

Weird & wacky: The statuesque side of Vegas

Vegas gets a bad rap for not having much culture, like wearing a yard-long version of the Eiffel Tower around your neck should be considered a faux pas or something. We have tons of culture, especially art. Just look at all the graffiti painted frescos, living sculptures, delicate cuisine and…

Must dos this weekend in Vegas: Nov. 6 – Nov. 8, 2015

Aw, man. We’re still on a holiday high from Halloween in Vegas and can’t believe it’s already over. Plus, we’re no longer enjoying the pleasant 80-degree temps that we wish would stick around all year. Yes, fall has finally arrived in Sin City. But hey – look on the bright side:…

Spots to enjoy a Vegas pool experience year round

Waaah. Summer is already over and just thinking about these past few months makes us want to relive the season all over again. (In the words of  Uncle Rico, “Oh man. I wish I could go back in time.”) But unlike Uncle Rico from the popular 2005 “Napoleon Dynamite” movie, we…

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…
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…

Where to catch 4th of July fireworks in Vegas

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? We’ve got a list of…

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…

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…

Betcha didn’t know this about Vegas’ acrobatic shows

OK, so you’re at the bar and somehow have managed to find yourself buying a drink for a seemingly-out-of-your-league eight whose caramel brown eyes have miraculously chosen to lock in on your baby blues and you’re definitely not mad about it. Your drinks have been served and you’re about to…

Must dos this weekend in Vegas: May 28 – 31, 2015

So you came to Vegas for Memorial Day Weekend and you’ve been nursing your hangover poolside ever since. You had plans to fly home yesterday but as you cracked open another cold one, you quickly realized the flight you were supposed to catch was going to disappear into the less-fun,…

Must dos this weekend in Vegas: March 26 – 28, 2015

Cheers to the freakin’ weekend! We will definitely drink to that and raise our liquor-filled solo cups to another action-packed Vegas bender that is just days away. What’s that you say? You don’t know what you’re going to do to make sure your Vegas trip is well spent? Well, if…
The best hotels in Vegas for: Families

The best hotels in Vegas for: Families

We’re back again and returning to our series about picking the perfect hotel for your Vegas visit. Everyone knows this is the kind of choice that can make or break your vacation. And if you’re traveling to Sin City with children, well, there’s even more pressure to make the right…

The best hotels in Vegas for: Adrenaline junkies

What was the last thrill you had in your life? If you answered nabbing a pull-through parking spot at the grocery store (and that is a glorious feeling), then it’s a good thing you’re coming to Vegas. Just being in Sin City can deliver a much-needed adrenaline boost. As it…

Hotels in Vegas are generating a greener future

When you think of Vegas, saving precious resources isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Drinking to the point of passing out. Oh yeah. Partying until the wee hours. Naturally. Pigging out at the buffets. Of course. Wagering next month’s rent at the blackjack tables. Uh, really you should…
