5 Reasons Why I Keep Coming Back to Las Vegas

las vegas fabulousI recently returned from a weekend getaway to Las Vegas, Nevada. Only a six-hour drive from Salt Lake City, Las Vegas is a popular vacation spot out here. I remember taking annual summer trips to the fabulous city growing up, and enjoy escaping to Las Vegas every now and again with my friends now that I’m older.

That’s the great thing about Las Vegas. While its reputation makes the city seem adult-friendly only, the town is really built for fun-lovers of all ages. The Strip has been designed to entertain the young and the young at heart. Here are five of my favorite attractions from being a wide-eyed tyke in Caesar’s Palace to a 20-something thrill-seeker.

5. Race for Atlantis – Caesar’s Palace
I’ll lead with the bad news: this ride doesn’t exist any more. It was taken out recently due to some remodeling, however, I remember this virtual trip through the sea as a kid and it was amazing. Now, although the ride is gone, the pre-show and aquarium are still there. Caesar’s features a small, round aquarium that contains many fascinating sea creatures from stingrays and blue tangs. It’s not quite the same, but still gives children and adults alike an entertaining view. And above the aquarium you can still catch the pre-show, where King Atlas asks his son and daughter to duke it out for who will be the next ruler of Atlantis. These animatronics figures use fire and water to engage the crowd and it ends in a shocking display of fierce family competition. Although this won’t entertain you all day, it’s a great show to catch in-between shopping and dining at Caesar’s Palace.

4. The Big Apple Coaster – New York, New Yorklas vegas NY
There are many rides to choose from when in Las Vegas. The Big Apple Coaster was one I had wanted to try for a long time and I was finally able to during my most recent visit. The coaster is visibly older and not nearly as fast as I thought it would be, but it has loops and corkscrews that keep it interesting. It’s a short ride and contains no unseen turns, so hesitant children needn’t be too afraid. Every passenger gets their picture taken before and during, which make for great souvenirs. Also, the entrance is located at the back of an arcade, so those who prefer not to ride can be entertained and it gives everyone a fun place to be after the ride. Maybe you’ll even get lucky and will a few prizes!

3. The Lion’s Share Slot Machine – MGM Grand
I’m a sucker for mythology and this slot machine has a lot of it. Two decades ago when the MGM Grand first opened, the Lion’s Share machine sat amongst hundreds of others waiting to be played. While the other slot machines have cashed out their lottery and been removed for newer models, the Lion’s Share stays because no one has ever scored the big bucks. Today, with a $2.345 million jackpot and counting, the Lion’s Share has become a legend, encouraging gamblers from las vegas slotsall over the world to come and test their luck at this life-changing machine. Legally, the MGM Grand can’t remove the ancient device until the maximum lottery is won, so the Lion’s Share stays while the rest of the casino has grown and modernized. The romantic idea of the $3 minimum turning into over $2 million is what draws hopefuls to this machine day and night, and is why it’s a must-see stop when visiting Las Vegas.

las vegas bellagio2. Bellagio Fountains – The Bellagio
One used to be able to find many free and elaborate shows simply walking along the Strip. However, favorites like Treasure Island’s “Sirens of TI” have been replaced by Walgreens and shopping centers. Fortunately, the water show outside of the Bellagio is still in full force. Featuring classic tunes by Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly, the fountains dance through the hot Nevada air every 30-minutes. The gentle mist of the water-works cools observers’ faces as tourists young and old gather around the 8.5-acre lake for a little bit of Las Vegas magic. I make sure to catch a show every time I visit Las Vegas and it never gets old. I revert back to my youthful sense of astonishment every time.

1. Wander the Strip
It may seem ridiculous that this is my favorite thing about Las Vegas, but it is. As a young girl, I remember walking through mall after mall and seeing all of the beautiful, sparkling things and people. A decade later, I’m still mesmerized by everything that Las Vegas is. Yes, there are some grimy, inappropriate parts. But there is also constant spectacle; Las Vegas is a place where you must suspend your disbelief and live in a new kind of place. Simply sliding on your walking shoes is the beginning to an unpredictable adventure every time you’re in this city. From the extravagance of fine eateries and elaborate acrobatics to costumed superheroes posing for pictures and lazy days by the pool, Las Vegas has entertainment for all sizes of people and budgets.

Las Vegas: Marriott’s Grand Chateau is HOT

You already know why we love Vegas. Even for those of us who don’t gamble and are easily overstimulated, Las Vegas, Nevada can be a gem waiting to be unearthed. Most of the world, however, doesn’t need convincing, and are already enchanted by the city’s charm.

 

So for them (and now, for us) the question of Las Vegas really becomes about accommodation. And there’s no wonder why. With over 124,000 hotel rooms to choose from, it’s easy to spend hours researching or agonizing over small decisions and large prices.

 

Or, if you travel to Las Vegas every year, sometimes more than once, you might consider a Las Vegas timeshare. Maybe you’re attracted by the 37 local golf courses, or you come in for one of the 3,749 annual conventions held in the city. Maybe you’re in the neon light business. Maybe you just like Blackjack and late nights. Whatever your reason, if you’re in Vegas often, and you like luxury and style, here’s a hot property:

 

Marriott’s Grand Chateau.  The deluxe guestrooms and luxury vacation villas are steps away from a rooftop pool and stunning skyline views. And Marriott’s name guarantees a quality of excellence unequalled in the travel and accommodation business, internationally.

 

And especially now, as the weather is cooling off from record summer temperatures and enduring drought, Premier Timeshare Resale has seen increased interest in Marriott’s Grand Chateau on the resale market. Las Vegas aficionados are asking us for more Marriott’s Grand Chateau timeshare resales, and so we’re saying to our owners who want to sell a Marriott’s Grand Chateau, now is the time. Let us know what you have and we can appraise you (or even hand you a sales offer!) here when the fall season is underway and Las Vegas timeshare traffic is perking up.

 

Shop, see, learn, experience, bask, win, experience, go. Las Vegas.

Travel Post: The Hoover Dam, a day trip from Vegas

If Las Vegas is America’s playground, then the Hoover Dam, less than an hour away from Vegas, is America’s most captivating post-recess lesson in science and technology, not to mention History! After an exciting trip to Las Vegas, my travel partner and I headed out of town to tour one of the most impressive engineering marvels of the 20th century.

Hoover Dam is remarkably close to Las Vegas, with its proximity making it an attractive day-trip option for anyone needing a break from the action and intrigue of the nearby city. Forty-five minutes after leaving the Las Vegas Strip, we arrived in breathtaking Boulder Canyon. The contrast from the bright neon civilization of Vegas to the stark desert beauty of Boulder City and the canyon was refreshing, and a new high way diverting traffic from across the dam itself made car traveling simple, quick, and smooth.

Although you can’t see the dam from the arched highway (pictured above), a trip down to the facility and visitor’s center is worth the time and effort. We arrived in plenty of time to do a power-plant and dam tour, both of which were interactive, informative, and engaging.

With a new visitor’s center erected in 1995, Hoover Dam’s capacity for tourism has expanded into making visitors comfortable and keeping their attention. With options in addition to the tours from providing life-size models and detailed exhibits of the electricity generators powered by the dam’s water inflow, to short video presentations about the Colorado River’s geographical and damming history, you won’t be bored.

The tours themselves were informative and hands-on, with explanations of the dam’s purpose, construction techniques, and continuing maintenance.

We got to explore some of the bigger maintenance tunnels  and learned some cool facts about the dam, like:

  • It was 70% overbuilt—engineers wanted to be 170% sure that it would accomplish the task of holding back the Colorado river!
  • It was completed nearly 2 years AHEAD of schedule, and finished under-budget.
  • 96 men lost their lives in the building of the dam, and
    lthough many were due to pneumonia or influenza, even more were reported as being caused by illness so as to avoid paying out insurance on accidental deaths associated with construction.
  • Finished in 1935, the entire construction was completed without ANY complex technological devices; pen and paper calculation, and “eyeballing” were utilized extensively.
  • Accounting for the area’s moderate seismic activity, the dam isn’t actually anchored to the canyon walls. It’s wedged in between the rock, with the water of Lake Mead (the dammed Colorado River) holding it in place. When the canyon walls shift with earthquakes, the dam shifts with them.

Seismic activity is still closely monitored, of course, and the Hoover Dam is thought to be able to withstand above 8.0 shocks on the Richter Scale. It’s also meant to last 2,000 years at efficiency, though it will probably last closer to 3,000.

If you want to know more about the dam or its visiting opportunities, visit the US Bureau of Reclamation’s website at www.usbr.gov/lc/hooverdam/

As a traveler who loves to learn as well as relax and party, I highly recommend this venture for the more adventurous visitors to Las Vegas. It definitely helps to have your own car, and though going in the off-seasons (October through May) probably provides a less crowded (and definitely cooler, temperature-wise) experience, it’s open year-round, and certainly worth the detour.
