Explore off-beat Vegas!

19 Feb

Killer gambling, world-class dining, shopping galore, luxurious spas, theme parks, aquariums, round-the-clock places to get hitched… Las Vegas offers limitless fun for all ages!

Hopefully you’ll find some time to steal away from WPPI and enjoy this sinfully fun city. If you do, we’ve got a few interesting, wacky, off-the-beaten path deas on where to go that are geared more towards you creative types:

Explore

Legendary Downtown Vegas

Where all the glitz began. Have a drink fireside at the Peppermill, or dine at Golden Steer Steakhouse, circa 1958, once frequented by Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr.
(Shuttles available. Or rent a car to explore.)

The Liberace Museum

Neon and rhinestones. Need we say more? (closed Mondays)

Neon Boneyard

Where Neon goes to be even more fabulous. Oldest signs circa 1940. (Reservations required. Make them in advance; you won’t be the only one interested.)

Pinball Hall of Fame

10,000 square feet of good, clean fun, for pocket change. Free Admission

Lake Mead

Instead of Red Rocks and the Grand Canyon, check out the source of The Bellagio’s fountains and The Wynn’s waterfall.


Splurge

Bathhouse Spa

Zen minimalism. A four-hour champagne body-wrap/facial/man-pedi. And a hangover recovery detox. Wow.

Luv It Frozen Custard

A Vegas sweet spot since the seventies. Sundaes, cones, shakes, malts and floats made with fresh custard made daily.

Shop

The Attic

“First rate second hand.” The worlds’ largest vintage clothing store. (Dozens more, plus antiques here.)

Unica

Vintage Eames and so much more. The home store to make all others weep.

Eat & Drink

Big Mama’s Rib Shack and Soul Food

“Honey, if the Colonel could have fried chicken like Big Mama, he would have been a General.” Enough said.

Double Down Saloon
Originator of the Bacon Martini…this dive bar is known as “The Happiest Place on Earth.” A far cry from the Disneyfied Strip.

Hofbräu Haus

A Vegas legend. Every day’s Oktoberfest starting daily at 11am! (Reservations recommended. Hours: Sun-Thurs: 11 am – 11 pm, Fri-Sat: 11 am – Midnight)
