Once There . . .
Las Vegas continues to build upon its reputation as a vibrant showcase for the extraordinary. This is the city that attracts more than 36 million visitors a year by offering the grandest hotels, the biggest stars in entertainment, the highest caliber of award-winning chefs and master sommeliers, and, of course, the brightest lights.
Drawing an influx of designers and upscale specialty boutiques, Las Vegas has become one of the premium world-class shopping destinations in the country. Headliners such as Harry Winston, Manolo Blahnik, Juicy Couture, Jimmy Choo, and Dolce and Gabbana now populate the Strip at the Fashion Show, Forum Shops at Caesars, Mandalay Place, Miracle Mile Shops, Grand Canal Shoppes, Via Bellagio and the shops at Wynn Las Vegas.
Fields of Green
Whether you are dancing under the lights of the Fremont Street Experience in Downtown Las Vegas or strolling the shops at Monte Lago Village at Lake Las Vegas, you are never far from a golf course. The fifty-plus golf courses in Las Vegas, designed by the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Pete Dye, Tom Weiskopf and Robert Trent Jones Jr., have put Vegas on the map for golf connoisseurs. Each course is within a one-hour radius of the city, offering challenging play and beautiful desertscapes, flowing waterfalls, rolling greens and mountain views.
Relax and Recharge
No longer the domain of women, the spa experience has arrived in Las Vegas. Now home to 4 Mobil 4-Star Spas, more than any other city in the country, Las Vegas resorts offer the most luxurious and varied spa experiences anywhere, from the famous Canyon Ranch Spa (The Venetian), the sleek and modern BATHHOUSE (THEhotel at Mandalay Bay), to the young, hip vibe of the Reliquary Spa (Hard Rock) and the Spa at Green Valley.
While planning an evening of entertainment, look to the growing roster of gourmet restaurants and unparalleled wine and food adventures in Las Vegas. A host of fine dining and lifestyle magazines – including Bon Appetit, Wine Spectator, Gourmet, Robb Report and Esquire – have honored the city for its fantastic fare and hailed individual restaurants for their exquisite cuisine, created by the likes of Bradley Ogden, Hubert Keller, Alain Ducasse, Emeril Lagasse, and Wolfgang Puck. To accompany its growing list of world-class chefs, Las Vegas has attracted more master sommeliers than any other U.S. city.
There are many reasons why Las Vegas commands the title as "The Entertainment Capital of the World." Some of the world's most exciting and versatile entertainers perform here including Celine Dion, Elton John, Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Garth Brooks, and so many more. Also, hot selling tickets include Broadway hits such as "Phantom - The Las Vegas Spectacular", "Jersey Boys" and "Tony & Tina's Wedding”. Other entertainment options include A-list headliners like Brad Garrett, Ray Romano, and Kevin James who regularly bring their shows to Las Vegas showrooms and arenas; as well as several resident Cirque du Soleil productions, comedy clubs, classic Las Vegas showgirl revues, and more.
The city famous for having "something for everyone" furthers the proof to its claim when the sun goes down. After AAA’s activities have concluded, registrants can experience a variety of night spots with personalities as varied as their own. From elaborately themed clubs to the new wave of upscale "ultra lounges" sweeping the Strip, attendees can choose from a wide array of offerings, including Pure (Caesars Palace), Rain in the Desert (Palms), Red Square (Mandalay Bay), Tao (The Venetian). Surrender (Wynn Las Vegas) is one of the newest, while Drai's (Bill's Gamblin' Hall) is one of the nightlife pioneers. With hip surroundings, signature drinks and an "anything goes" attitude, ultra lounges have redesigned Vegas nightlife, providing a new way to party on the Strip.
