Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – The restrictions are nearly over (we have the scoop), Resorts World (former Stardust property) has made a controversial decision you may want to know about, and we have an in-depth article section about the “Don’ts” you need to know regarding the new Circa Las Vegas resort downtown Fremont Street.

Hint: Knowing the Circa “Don’ts” can save your wallet some significant pain, especially with the in-depth options and alternatives we give you the experienced scoop on.

Let’s dive in!

Newkirk’s Notes has been published by Founder Ted Newkirk continuously (in one form or another) since 1995.

Ted is a noted and quoted Las Vegas analyst, having been quoted and sourced multiple times in 2020 along in publications ranging from the Las Vegas Review-Journal (Nevada’s largest newspaper) to U.S. News and World Report.

Newkirk’s Notes go well beyond the basic news, rumors, and (often questionable) thoughts and proclamations floating around on the internet. Our Supporting (Paid) Members know not only what is happening, but why, and how they can benefit (or know what to avoid).

For example countless Members have had incredibly enjoyable and successful visits to Las Vegas during COVID simply because they were truly in the know, and not only knew what was happening, but what was on the horizon.

Saving them money, time and inconvenience.

At $34.80 for an entire year (only $2.90 per month), we distill down what you really need to know, so that your trip this spring, summer, or even later in the year turns out to be your best ever. And, we GUARANTEE it.

Especially in these unprecedented times, find out what it is like to ACTUALLY be in the KNOW this time around:

We are flying into Vegas in 5/8 and I’ve just heard that shuttles are not running. My husband uses a scooter that can be folded in placed in a trunk. Do you think there are Lyft or Uker drivers that could accommodate us? Or is there some other way to get to the 4 Queens?
