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

Hello From Las Vegas! The town is jammed during this Thanksgiving holiday time. I haven’t seen so many families in the buffet lines in a long time. Instead of going to Grandma’s house, far-flung families use Las Vegas as a central meeting point. Every restaurant in every hotel had Thanksgiving fare on the menu and the wide variety of activities means that every extended family member can find enjoyable things to do.

Because of the holiday week, this issue is on shorter than normal, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t busy! I was fortunate enough to see a number of family members over the past few months as they visited Las Vegas so myself and recently-returned staff member Rick Ziegler are reviewing and discussing a number of major improvements and upgrades to literally every aspect of Our last makeover and upgrade was some 7 years ago, so it is about time!

Among Rick’s many strong points are video and social media, so we’re going heavily in that direction. We were one of the first travel sites to put out regular streaming video when we launched our All Vegas TV brand over 10 years ago. In fact, many of the oldest videos are still available in dial-up speed! But alas, the popularity of streaming internet video was still years away. Time has caught up, and we’re dusting the project off and relaunching it.

We’re not only going to update and upgrade every page of content, but will launch entirely new site sections based on amazing among of reader feedback we get to 41,000+ subscribers give us a solid pulse on what Vegas visitors are interested in. Which is where you come in:

We’re after suggestions and constructive criticism. What would you like to see more of? What would you like to see changed for the better? What do we currently not offer that you’d enjoy seeing us offer? What other travel sites do you visit (Vegas or otherwise) and what do they do or offer that you really enjoy? Any other comments or suggestions?

This is your chance to step up and make your voice heard. All emails (including complaints or constructive criticism) are welcomed at We’ll read them ALL and respond to as many as possible!
