There's always something new and exciting to see whenever you visit Las Vegas. Now, you can see a brand-new look for an old favorite - the Plaza Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas has received a seven-figure makeover and is set to once again be the anchor at the end of the Fremont Street Experience. Everything is new including the Swingers Club, Exposed Hair Salon, Insurgo Theater, and a steakhouse named after celebrity Mayor Oscar Goodman! Check out the new vintage downtown hotel and experience the best of old-school Vegas!
24/7 dining usually consists of a late night coffee shop - but the Palms Hotel takes casual dining to another level. Cathay House is a restaurant within a restaurant (it's in an exclusive space inside the 24/7 Café) with an assorted menu that offers something for every craving with a modern Chinese flair. Dim sum is a favorite here, and even served on rolling carts tableside daily.
Las Vegas has its share of top-notch Asian cuisine, and Luxor joins the list! For fresh, tasty and healthy Asian cuisine, check out Rice and Company, located at Luxor near Mandalay Place. This new casual dining alternative includes tropically influenced variations of sushi and sashimi and more! With a prime location at Luxor, you're just steps away from hit shows including the sexy adult-revue Fantasy, and family-friendly prop-comic Carrot Top!
Then, it's time to get your game on at Insert Coin(s) Videolounge Gamebar at the Fremont East District, where old-school video gaming collides with modern nightclub atmosphere. From classic arcades to new high-def gaming stations, drop a quarter and let the games begin. And finish strong with a stroll along Fremont East Entertainment District or the bright lights of VivaVision at Fremont Street Promenade!
Rock icons Rod Stewart and Elton John are beginning their residencies at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, too, so catch these iconic figures in all-new shows! You've seen these legendary GRAMMY winners over the years, but to see them in Vegas at the spectacular Colosseum, is worth the trip alone!
So much to see, so come check out what's new when you visit Las Vegas!
Not everyone can be a world traveler, but when you take a trip to Las Vegas, you can see the world all within a few blocks!
You'll feel like you're in the City of Lights when you visit Paris Las Vegas. The resort has detailed replicas of the Arc de Triomphe, Louvre façade, Paris Opera House and Hotel de Ville. And you certainly can't miss the 50-story, half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower, now one of Las Vegas' most visible landmarks.
Take a guided tour on an authentic gondola through the Venetian's Grand Canal Shoppes in this re-creation of the Italian city of Venice. Famous landmarks including St. Marks Square and winding canals add to the experience.

Relax at the luxurious Monte Carlo Resort, where you'll feel as though you just pulled up to the famed Casino de Monte Carlo in the South of France. Experience the cool breezes and tropical atmosphere of the South Pacific with a weekend at Mandalay Bay resort.
Everyone knows Las Vegas is famous for its poolside parties and summertime entertainment, but there are plenty of other ways to seize the summer in Vegas before it's gone.
Las Vegas is home to some of the most acclaimed and talked about restaurants in the world. From diners and buffets to one-of-a-kind Michelin-rated eateries, Vegas caters to every dining desire. The Country Club at Wynn Las Vegas offers an innovative update to the classic steakhouse menu. For a rockin' good time, check out Roxy's Diner inside the Stratosphere Hotel, Casino and Tower. The 1950s-themed diner boasts a singing staff and a menu offering hearty items like juicy burgers, crispy onion rings and delicious milkshakes. For those looking for an unforgettable experience, Tao Asian Bistro at The Venetian features Hong Kong Chinese, Japanese and Thai cuisines.
Here are a couple of great ways to stay cool this summer - try the Qua Baths and Spa's Arctic Ice Room at Caesars Palace, where you can relax in the "snow" - in the form of mint-infused air falling from a domed ceiling at 55 degrees. It's the coolest spa treatment you'll ever enjoy, and it's only in Vegas. Or hang out at the Minus 5 at Mandalay Bay and Monte Carlo Resort, where the drinks - and everything else - are chilled. Same goes for the frozen ice bar at Red Square.
Life is short. Summer is shorter. Seize the summer in Vegas!
The biggest names in comedy are taking the stage in Las Vegas this summer, so get ready to laugh like you've never laughed before.
