Trends, fashion, celebrities, events, music, and all things only Vegas
Whether it's with family or close friends, reunions are always special. Take yours to the next level by planning a group gathering in Las Vegas!
Having fun together in Las Vegas is something the whole family can agree on, even if your family is the type that has been known to lovingly tell one another on occasion to jump off of a tall building. In fact, you can even do that in Vegas by experiencing SkyJump at the Stratosphere.
Everyone seems to have a backseat driver that won't stop telling you how to drive! Well, now you can put the pedal to the metal and show them what you're really made of! Challenge them to a few laps of go-kart racing and settle it once and for all. Then, cool things off a bit and enjoy a ride down the Strip together on a double-decker bus.
Group dining is always a great way to enjoy the company of your close friends and family. Don't just book a reservation for 10 - book a private room and eat in style in Vegas! Reserve the private dining room at Jaleo inside The Cosmopolitan, the elegant private dining table at Pearl at MGM Grand or Panevino restaurant's private dining room featuring a panoramic view of the city to watch airplanes land.
You'll have so much fun in Vegas, you'll want to share the experience with friends back home! Just be sure everyone in your group takes the oath at LasVegas.com. Know the Code and Protect the Moment because What Happens Here, Stays Here.
