Resolutions worth keeping in Vegas

Las Vegas is often thought of as a city of excess, but that excess also allows for plenty of options - which makes it the perfect place to help you stay on track with your New Year's resolutions.

Face your fears: The freefall Skyjump at the Stratosphere is a great attraction both for thrill-seekers and for acrophobics looking to face their fears. To enjoy the ride, you simply jump off the 108th floor of the tower and land at the resort's second level - in a controlled freefall using a descender machine and cable, of course. If you like roller-coasters, take on the Desperado at Buffalo Bill's in nearby Primm, one of the world's tallest and fastest coasters. 

CanyonRanchGrillEat Healthier: The Canyon Ranch Grill at the Canyon Ranch Spa Club in The Venetian serves fresh, healthy gourmet options from a Warm Roasted Vegetable Salad to a vegetarian Southwest Black Bean Chili for lunch or a breakfast of Whole-Wheat Fresh Berry Pancakes or a "Healthy Elvis" grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich. Hearty sandwiches and healthy salads are also in abundance at Cafe du Parc inside Paris Las Vegas.

Get some exercise: Minutes from the Las Vegas Strip on the West side of town you'll find the spectacular cliffs of Red Rock Canyon. The national recreation area boasts 13 miles of ruby red rock formations, rolling hills and winding roads. Hiking trails of varying difficulty lead to Ice Box Canyon, La Madre Springs, Keystone Thrust or Turtlehead Peak. For year-round fun including hiking, camping, and picnicking as well as amazing scenery, head up to Mount Charleston Recreation Area, where the peak reaches 11,900 feet!

SmithCenterGet your culture on: The Smith Center for the Performing Arts is the home of the Las Vegas Philharmonic and the Nevada Ballet Theater. Its lineup of Broadway shows in
2013 includes West Side Story, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Anything Goes and Shrek the Musical. The center also houses a more intimate cabaret theater for Jazz and small concerts. Enjoy a celebration of art and music every month downtown during First Friday, where you'll find painting, ceramics, mixed media, photography, jewelry, textile arts and sculptures from more than 100 artists. 

Learn something: Las Vegas is home to a variety of museums that are uniquely Nevadan. The Neon
Museum
is home to more than 150 neon signs dating back to the 1930s. Housed in a former federal courthouse and U.S. Post Office building, the Mob Museum, officially the National Museum of Organized Crime & Law Enforcement, includes high-tech theater presentations, iconic one-of-a-kind artifacts. The National Atomic Testing Museum provides multiple viewpoints on the work conducted at the Nevada Test Site known as Area 51 and its impact on the
nation. 

Celebrate the best in Latin music in Vegas!
