Welcome to Las Vegas

Easter Island, Machu Picchu, and other celebrated wonders of the world are certainly impressive. But Las Vegas... Las Vegas is a land where jungles thrive and fountains dance in the middle of the desert. It's a place that unites medieval England and ancient Egypt with modern-day Venice, Paris, and New York. It's a never-ending source of irony and improbability where you can turn a chip and a chair into a million dollars, or celebrate your shotgun wedding by shooting machine guns. Where else does such a wonderland exist? In a word, nowhere. But Vegas.The smallish city (geographically) is larger than life, with a collective energy (and excess) that somehow feels intimate. Maybe it's the agreeable chimes and intermittent cheers from the casino floor that fade to tranquillity when you enter a sumptuous spa. Maybe it's the fish flown in nightly from the Mediterranean that lands on your plate. For each individual, Vegas is an equation where you + more = more of you: more chances to explore aspects of your personality that may be confined by the routine of daily life. It's for this reason alone that the "what happens here stays here" phenomenon is shared by so many visitors.The city itself has a number of different faces. For the history, head Downtown, and explore everything from old casinos to a museum that pays homage to the mobsters who built them. For fun, glitz and glamour, head to the Strip, which itself has three distinct vibes. For outdoor adventure, head west and south, either to the Spring Mountains beyond Summerlin or out to Hoover Dam and Lake Mead—man-made accomplishments of an entirely different sort. Along the way, you can pamper yourself at world-class spas and restaurants, engage in retail therapy at some of the best shopping in the world, dance the night away at rocking nightclubs, or—of course—court Lady Luck long enough to strike it rich. With the right itinerary, Vegas even can work for kids (or families with young kids). Explore

Samantha's Pick Bartolotta’s at The Wynn

This is a dinner you’ll be talking about for the rest of your life. The seafood is literally flown in from Italy that day.

Samantha's Pick Feel Rich, Spend Little

If you have to ask, you can’t afford it doesn’t apply here. During the week, room rates fall, so check out luxurious hotels for an affordable stay.

Put It All On Black at the Bellagio

If your Las Vegas fantasy involves looking like a bit player in a James Bond movie, head straight to the casino at the Bellagio, and order something fancy.

Step Right Up and See O

Were you not seeing these human feats with your own eyes, you would not believe they were really happening. O is Cirque du Soleil at their mesmerizing best.
