  • Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis at Caesars Palace

    Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis at Caesars Palace

    Ceasars Palace is a sprawling property that doesn’t skimp. If you have had a look at the Bacchanal Buffet, you know just what we’re talking about. This vast, seven-pool complex provides a number of areas, each unique, covering 4.5 acres of crystal blue water, gurgling fountain, and gorgeous landscaping.

  • Las Vegas feels earthquakes

    Las Vegas feels earthquakes

    The 4th of July is shaping up to be memorable as a moderate 6.4-magnitude earthquake jolted the Los Angeles area and was felt here in the Las Vegas Valley. The initial report of magnitude 6.8 was downgraded after additional data was reviewed. At 10:33 am, about 220 driving miles west of Las Vegas in Searles Valley, the earthquake struck. Residents reported the ground shaking here in Las Vegas and Pahrump. There were no reports of damage according to Las Vegas Fire & Rescue, but photos on social media have shown cracked roads, broken windows, and damaged plaster. Read more…
  • M Pool at M Resort

    M Pool at M Resort

    The M Resort has made a name for itself catering to Las Vegas locals. Like the Studio B Buffet which is a hit with residents in the area, this luxury hotel south of the Strip offers a VIP experience without the tourist pricing. Locals even receive free or discounted admission (Tuesday is free all day). The M Pool with cabanas at the center of the action. I give the composition 5/5. Read more…
  • Mandalay Bay Beach at Mandalay Bay

    Mandalay Bay Beach at Mandalay Bay

    Practically a water park in its own right, the award winning Mandalay Bay Beach is focused on providing a memorable aquatic experience for all guests. Sandy beaches sit well with the tropical theme, and a 1.6 million gallon wave pool provides a fun diversion for the young and old, alike. The lagoon and quarter mile long lazy river are quite well made, visually appealing, and make use of the 11 acres of space. Read more…
  • Sandbar Pool at Red Rock

    Sandbar Pool at Red Rock

    The Red Rock out in Summerlin is one of the best off-off-Strip resort casinos in Las Vegas. And if the movie theater and Feast buffet are not enough to keep you entertained, the 3-acre pool boasts an island fountain and poolside blackjack. What we like is the lovely design of the pool area, which provides an open plan that still manages to keep areas separate. It is easy to claim your own little kingdom and never worry about crowding. Read more…
  • The Backyard at Green Valley Ranch

    The Backyard at Green Valley Ranch

    An off-off-Strip choice in Henderson, the Green Valley Ranch is a Mediterranean-inspired luxury resort. Offering an 8-acre pool area which is something to behold, it includes some great features and wonderful landscaping that help set it apart from the pack. The sand-bottom pool is a hit with just about everyone, and does give the feel of a real beach in case you couldn’t make it to your tropical destination. Read more…
  • The Scene Pool Deck at Planet Hollywood

    The Scene Pool Deck at Planet Hollywood

    This free rooftop pool with live DJs and two pool decks is a great option on a budget. But that means it can get a little crowded. The crowd can also get a little rowdy. The pool has its own FlowRider, so if you want to show off your boogie-board skills, you can do so in front of friends and strangers. You might even get lucky and find a deal to lower the price.

    Las Vegas bets on eSports

    With fears of a recession, the smart money is looking for new markets that will weather the storm. Some eyes have turned to a growing demographic that has already generated strong returns: the rapidly growing world of esports, aka E-Sports, aka competitive video gaming. Set to surpass the $1 billion mark, esports shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. As association and corporate events reach their saturation point and continuing to grapple with flat budgets and shrinking attendance, the new industry of esports, with its broad appeal and growing fan base, has grown rapidly.

Jason Bourne and his friends visited the Las Vegas Strip in 2016. Drivers everywhere and almost half the audience hope they never come back. I give the fountain at the Bellagio (behind the multiple-vehicle collision) 5/5.

  • A.Y.C.E. Buffet at The Palms

    A.Y.C.E. Buffet at The Palms

    The A.Y.C.E. Buffet is part of the extensive expansion and upgrade of the Palms Hotel Casino. And for those who like to eat, it might be the greatest addition they made. Now, full disclosure, we think this buffet is the best value of any buffet in Las Vegas. It might not have the pizzazz of our top three (Wynn, Aria, and the Wicked Spoon), or the variety of the Bacchanal, but you will walk away knowing your money was well spent. Read more…

This is quality food that is a fusion of international and American cuisine, at prices which are reasonable. We don’t expect anyone to seek it out, but those staying at the Palms will enjoy this as their default dining option. Read more…

  • Unknown Bar at The Palms Casino Resort

    Unknown Bar at The Palms Casino Resort

    This bar is a centerpiece at the Palms Casino Many bars draw a crowd with their theme and décor, but few offer the sort of spectacle of Unknown, standing out in white marble like a monument. And there on display is a 13’ tiger shark in three pieces. This art installation by Damien Hirst is eye-catching, provocative and an attraction. It provides an energy to the moment while you have drinks, and an instant ice-breaker as you approach a stranger. Read more…

    El Cortez keeps Las Vegas tradition alive with coin slot machines

    The one arm bandit, lights flashing, and alarms ringing, with the sound of coins falling out in a fountain of winnings is the spirit of Vegas gambling. There is no better way to celebrate a winning bet than the spray of money into your bucket of coins. It’s real, weighty, and full of promise. But as much as we can recall the feel of coin slot machines, they are long gone. Read more…


  • Las Vegas Hotel Casinos

    Las Vegas Hotel Casinos

    Park MGM At a glance: The Park MGM is an all new hotel and casino which has replaced the Monte Carlo. This Strip property is situated close to the action, making it a great choice for any visitors. The décor has a Park Avenue grandness, or as some might say a Manhattan or Metropolitan vibe.
