3. Stay

Encore Resort

Truly fantastic across the board. Starting at 745 square feet, rooms are spacious and well-appointed. Service is attentive without being obtrusive. All the while, between the acclaimed 18-hole golf course and heated pools surrounded by gorgeous gardens, the facilities are terrific.

Fremont Street Experience

This brilliant pedestrian mall dressed in neon leaves spectators speechless thanks to an enormous canopy displaying light and sound shows every night. The attraction is located in downtown Las Vegas, a revitalized area now home to fine arts and culture.

5. Shop

Broadacres Marketplace

Located on the north side of town, this unique shopping spot (with over 1,000 vendors) combines great food, drink, and music with one-of-a-kind art, clothing, and home goods. A refreshing alternative to the endless amount of high-end (and familiar) brands dominating the Strip.
