If this looks like fun, you need to add this adventure to your Las Vegas itinerary! Just north of Las Vegas, the stunning Valley Of Fire sits ready to enjoy. Starting around $220 per person (about what you'd lose gambling and spend on shopping, beer, and lunch for the day anyway), you and up to 6 friends will be picked up at your hotel, taken to the Valley Of Fire, get 3.5 hours of dune buggy time over this awesome desert terrain, and lunch and bottled water are included. Then, transport back to your hotel where you can shower up for your night on the town.

The influence of our neighboring 54,000-square-mile, hot, hot, hot Mojave Desert with 120-degree temperatures in Death Valley permeates much of the new Delano Las Vegas, yet the renovated property is as cool - and hip and South Beach chic - as can be.
Aristocrat Technologies didnÆt have to sell the producers of the ôSons of Anarchyö television series on the idea of creating a slot machine based on the fictional outlaw motorcycle club. The showÆs top executives approached the gaming company to discuss the concept.
Las Vegas Dining
A new dining destination landed at Downtown Container Park. The Perch will be found, umm, perched to the west of the outdoor mall's events stage. While it's great to see another new eatery in Fremont East, it's even better to see one that boasts "18 dishes priced at $10 or less." The Perch also ticks more boxes if you're a fan of light fare, love "farm fresh" cuisine, and enjoy eating as part of a flock (i.e., it's all about those trendy shared plates).

What We're Watching!
Vegas Videos You'll Enjoy
- Las Vegas Strip At Night - City Of Lights - 2013 - This place is unreal, it's a fantasy land for adults full of shinny lights, games and attractions to keep you going and going. Video is shot during the "golden hour" when The Strip is just beginning to light up, and pre-dates the LinQ project (oh, the memories)!
- Britney Spears Live In Las Vegas At Planet Hollywood - Various videos from throughout the show taken on an iPhone, gives you a great idea of what to expect if you attend. If Britney isn't your thing, still worth clicking over to watch and find out what all the hubbub is about.
- Buzzed By F18's At Death Valley - While on a road trip across country two guys randomly out exploring on a ridge with no clue are surprised by two F18's during training in Death Valley. At the time they had no idea the spot was a regular training area. I literally had just stopped to get a shot of the canyon and some quick video of the rocks at the beginning of the video. Definitely an incredible experience, like double rainbows or something.
