Flowers, chocolates and cards are nice, sure, but this Mother's Day, give your mom something that will last forever -- memories of an amazing Mother's Day trip to Las Vegas!
Remember those times she cooked and did the dishes? It's her turn to enjoy some great food. Fortunately, there's still time to take part in the culinary event of the year -- Vegas Uncork'd! The world's greatest chefs and sommeliers gathered for a weekend of delectable dishes.
Moms deserve to be pampered, too, so set her up with a treatment from any of Las Vegas' unique, invigorating and refreshing spas.
Help her escape to Qua Baths and Spa's Arctic Ice Room at Caesars Palace, where she 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 she'll ever enjoy, and it's only in Vegas. The Palms Place Pool & Spa combines the cultural histories of Turkey, Tunisia, Morocco and Spain and is the first spa in Las Vegas to offer a hammam - a traditional Turkish bath.
Other refreshing and invigorating signature treatments that Mom will love can be found at the Adventure Spa at Red Rock Resort, the Canyon Ranch Spa at the Venetian, Oleksandra Spa at Treasure Island and the Aquae Sulis Spa at the J.W. Marriott, to name a few.
Then, it's time to treat Mom to a real Vegas show! Watch a dream unfold before your eyes at Le Reve at Wynn Las Vegas.
So many ways to express your gratitude, so give Mom the Mother's Day experience of a lifetime in Vegas!
Earth Day is all about going "green" -- and for buildings, that means ecofriendly and sustainable construction.
In Vegas, though, our green comes in different shades -- mainly gold and silver.
City Center, MGM Resorts International's$8.5 billion mega-complex on the Strip, is the biggest project ever to receive LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold certification. Here are some ways you can experience Earth Day at City Center.
Caesars Entertainment Corp. recent expansion of the Octavius Convention Center at Caesars Palace garnered silver LEED certification as well.
MGM Resorts also claims the Strip's only water recycling plant, at Treasure Island. It processes 100,000 gallons of gray water daily. The recycled water is then used in the Sirens Cove at TI, at the Volcano at The Mirage, and for landscaping.
