Sightseeing
If you come to Vegas, this is the #1 tourist destination. A cross between Time Square and the Barnum and Bailey Circus--this piece of the desert is off the charts.

If you love the kitsch of Vegas--people watching, cheap souvenirs, cheap drinks, and lots and lots of tourists--this is our downtown experience here in Vegas. It also often has live music on weekends.

A lot of travelers have conferences here. It's a small European village in many ways. What I like about it is paddle board rentals. The bike trails are also lovely.

Bennett's favorite place on earth. We go for a run on the train track trail (it goes all the way to the dam--about 9 miles) and then I take him swimming. Every time it's the best day of his life.

The casino has a chandelier bar that's three stories tall. On weekends they open the mezzanine . . . have a martini IN a chandelier and feel like a celebrity among the celebrities.

My favorite rooftop bar right now is at the top of the Delano. More mature crowd, spectacular views, and music that doesn't give me a headache.

Arts & Culture
This is a few blocks south of downtown and a lot of fun. Great shops, live music, outdoor cafes and a jungle gym on steroids. It's all made of recycled materials. Look for the robotic Praying Mantis

Drinks & Nightlife
Close to the house, reasonable prices, great food. I always sit in the bar--but people smoke in Nevada, so that can be a turn-off. Yes--indoors.

Local bar with decent (i.e. healthy) bar food. I'm serious--they even have a Protein Plate. Great bartenders and I also like the jukebox. I rode my bike--but it's a haul on two wheels.

This bar has friendly staff and pretty good bar food (I like their grilled chicken wings). The best part is it's right on the bike path--so I treat myself to a beer and head home.

Like karaoke? Ever dream of singing with an actual band? Friday nights make it a reality. I've done it twice, and both times the difference between a band and a machine was night and day.

If you want to check out authentic jazz and blues--this is the place. These musicians jam until the wee hours and there's rarely a cover.

Everything Else
This is a great trail for walking or biking. I like it because it overlooks an interesting desert ravine. Easy access from the house. Take Bennett along--he loves it!

You can pick up this trail just on the other side of I-215 on Stephanie and ride all the way to the lake. Or so people tell me. I make it about 5 miles and turn around. A little on the hilly side.

This is an amazing pool. I've only swam in their outside pool, but they have indoors and a Jacuzzi too. Give them my address and you can get in for $3 a day.

Old-time casino with tons of cool history and extremely lively table games. Cheap bets pack them in. Go-go dancers and flare bartenders add to the high energy.
