You're in charge this President's Day in Las Vegas!

We can't all be commander-in-chief ... but you'll feel like you're in charge when you spend Presidents Day Weekend in Las Vegas!

Let’s start small – penny slots. You can win big even when playing with just a penny in Vegas. Check out Penny Lane at Boyd Gaming properties (Orleans, Gold Coast, Suncoast, Sam’s Town, California, Fremont and Main Street Station) -- where you can earn more bonuses, more often! Don’t take our word for it – hear what Lincoln has to say:

Then, rent a stretch "Lincoln" limo and cruise the Strip before heading to Sugar Factory American Brasserie for some goodies. With locations at Paris Las Vegas and the new sweet spot at Town Square, you'll find plenty of tasty treats. May we suggest a handful of jelly beans? Ronald Reagan would be proud!

Once you're stocked up on sweet treats, head to The Range 702 in honor of our 2nd amendment supporters, such as George Bush. You'll find products for the sportsman, the history buff, the gamer and even the first-time shooter. Visitors to The Range 702 can shoot automatic and semi-automatic weapons, handguns and specialty equipment. 

By now you've probably worked up an appetite - head west to Bonnie Springs Ranch restaurant in Red Rock Canyon where the cinematic bar is decorated with thousands of one-dollar bills from customers all around the world. Be sure to sign and date your George Washington before hanging it on the ceiling where it will stay for at least a full term.

Speaking of dollar bills, use them wisely during Presidents Day Weekend by checking out all the free shows in Vegas that will keep you from pulling presidents from your wallet! 

If you're willing to throw down a few Andrew Jacksons, check out Downtown Gordie Brown - the talented entertainer impersonates President Bill Clinton, among others, in his act at the Golden Nugget. Regardless of which party you support come election time, presidential parodies always make for a great laugh!

No "presidential"-themed visit to Vegas would be complete without taking the Hoover Dam Top to Bottom Tour. It offers an in-depth look at this engineering wonder of the world located just outside Las Vegas as well as a peaceful ride down the Colorado River.

You'll run a great weekend campaign here in Vegas - and there's always room for a second term, so come on back (but don't wait 4 years please). Book your trip at LasVegas.com and spend Presidents Day weekend in the Entertainment Capital of the World - it's a landslide victory!
