Newkirk’s Notes – comments on Las Vegas from AccessVegas.Com publisher Ted Newkirk:

Splash – We went and saw Splash at The Riviera Sunday night. First time back to see the show in about 2.5 years. Back then, I thought there was room for improvement. The show has been revamped and now I can give it my 100% recommendation! If you want to see the traditional Las Vegas show with topless showgirls, singing, dancing, impersonators, great comedy and more, you can’t go wrong with Splash.

Still not sure? We have photos and steaming video to help you make up your mind! Splash is reserved seating, so booking online ahead of your visit will get you better seats.

Senior’s Las Vegas Newsletter Is Free – In case there was any confusion, our new Seniors newsletter about Las Vegas is completely free, just like this one. What? You haven’t heard about it? Check out our March 26 Newsletter in the archives for all the details.

I’m wondering if anyone has been to see “Spirit of the Dance “while they were staying in Las Vegas. My wife loved “Riverdance”. I’m thinking she might enjoy this, hopefully it’s not too similar. We’re staying downtown and this might be a good way to take a short break in the action. The last week of April can’t get here quick enough.

I must confess I have yet to see Spirit Of The Dance. Readers … he and his wife are headed here soon. If you have seen it, give us all the scoop in our Spirit Of The Dance forum.

My husband & I will be on holiday from Scotland in July ’03. and we can hardly wait! The anticipation is all the more ’cause we were in Vegas last July ’02 and had a ball! We saw as much as we could pack into the time we had, but really just concentrated on the ‘strip’. This time we are coming for 12 days and intend to hire a car for 3/4 days, and try and see a bit more outside Vegas. Does anyone have any suggestions on where is really interesting and ‘different’ from what we can visit here in Scotland. We would be prepared to stay overnight somewhere if needed.

One of my favorite things to do when I need to relax and clear my head is just take a drive in the desert. Out to Lake Mead, Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire, you name it! If driving, let me strongly suggest the Travelog series Travelog Hoover Dam / Valley of Fire and Travelog Red Rock Canyon. These are guided driving tours on tape and CD (comes with both). They are very accurate and helpful — I have both!

We also have links to much of the above information on our Sightseeing And Outdoor Recreation page. If you get away from the neon to explore the natural wonders of our area, what are your favorites and what tips do you have? Share them in our Places Of Interest forum. Help our friends from Scotland (and everyone else) enjoy their trip even more!

Has anyone been playing 3 card poker and if so where are you having the most luck at? I am going to be in Vegas 4/22-4/26 and can’t wait to hit the tables. We are staying at Harrah’s. Hope the weather is nice that time of year…..

We just had a couple days of rain but the long range forecast says mostly sunny with highs around 80. I confess I’m not a poker player so we need reader help on this one. If you play poker in Las Vegas, help them out in the Three Card Poker thread of our forums. Also, we just opened up a new poker forum on the boards. Go to the Message Boards main menu, scroll down to Gambling, and Poker is there. Poker players, post away!

Just got back from Vegas, spent a few nights at Treasure Island, and REALLY enjoyed it. It was our honeymoon, and for no extra charge they upgraded us to the penthouse overlooking the strip (small tip at the check in counter certainly didn’t hurt!), and threw in champagne. Found the dealers very friendly, and the place is just a nice combination of class and low key fun.

What a great story, and sounds like a great honeymoon! For those wondering about the “check-in counter tip”, Check out our Las Vegas tipping guide. Have you stayed at Treasure Island or are thinking about it? Join the Treasure Island discussion in our forums.

How many people use Limousines as their mode of transportation in Vegas? I plan on using Las Vegas Limousines when I attend Vegas. Thanks in advance!

Living here, I end up in a limo from time to time, but usually because someone I know or was hanging out with had one at their disposal. So I’m not really qualified to talk about renting them. Readers, did you rent a limo for that special occasion in town or use one instead of grabbing a cab at the airport? Fill us in at our Limousine forum. You can book one in advance and check rates online at our Limo Search.
