LAS VEGAS: OUR PICKS

Top things to do

Richard Petty Drive Experience

BEST adrenaline rush ever! No other driving experience compares to the exhilaration of driving an actual NASCAR on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. With right seat instruction, drivers push the limits of speed to a new level!

Grand Canyon by Helicopter

Viewing the Grand Canyon is spectacular, but seeing it from inside a helicopter professionally narrated by the pilot and then landing on the canyon floor is an incredible memory you’ll have for the rest of your life.

Fremont Street East

Downtown is transforming into a hip, vibrant urban scene with unique bars, eclectic restaurants and various cultural activities. Trust us Fremont East is worth a visit!

The Beatles LOVE, by Cirque Du Soleil

Beatles fan or not, you will absolutely love LOVE! Visually stunning, incredible theater, fun surprises during the show and fabulous music. You will want to see it again.

Watch and Listen to the Bellagio Fountains

Even if you’ve seen the Bellagio Fountains, you can’t help but appreciate the spectacular sight when you see it again. The show changes so be sure to catch it again!

The Mob Museum

Immerse yourself in true Las Vegas history at The Mob Museum located inside the former 1930’s Federal Courthouse building downtown. There’s a lot to see and read so plan for 3-4 hours. The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre wall is a must see!

Tasting at The Whiskey Attic

This is a unique and educational tasting experience like no other! With over 600 different bottles of whiskey, this place is amazing due to its owner, Adam, and his tasting teach technique, that makes it a must do in Las Vegas.

Lake Mead National Recreational Area

This local favorite is a beautiful place for hiking, running and camping however most love it for some fun in the sun! Gather up some friends, rent a few pontoon boats and jet skis, light up a BBQ and enjoy the sunshine!

Top places to eat

Burger Bar

Burger Bar is one of those places you recommend with confidence. The sliders and build-your-own burgers are ridiculous and they have a beer list that goes on forever. For a burger joint, it’s expensive, but go in with an appreciation for great burgers, ice cold beers with some good friends and it won’t disappoint!

Comme Ça

This place has it all! Amazing food, top-notch service and an incredible view! If the weather permits, try to sit outside. Must haves include the Roasted Bone Marrow and Oxtail Jam and the Comme Ça Burger. With an 11-page wine/spirits menu, come ready to taste deliciousness!

N9NE Steakhouse

Possibly the best steakhouse in the city! The atmosphere is trendy and hip and the food is exquisite. You must try their rib-eye steak, garbage salad and white truffle gnocchi. The meat is cooked perfectly and full of flavor. Although it will be difficult, do your best to save room for dessert.

Estiatorio Milos

A fabulous place for dinner and an even better place for an upscale lunch at an affordable price point. Their pre-fix lunch menu features flavorful Greek cuisine served by attentive and knowledgeable staff. Order the suggested wine pairings for a fabulous lunch experience!

NOVE Italiano

You’ll go for the spectacular view–you’ll come back because of the food. The menu is surprisingly wonderful with an interesting blend of Italian dishes. Everything is prepared to perfection! We promise, this will be a staple every time you visit.

Gordon Ramsey Steakhouse

Two words: Beef Wellington. It’s phenomenal and the accompaniments that follow will continue to impress. The service is superior and every menu item melts in your mouth. I don’t care if you’re full, you must try the Sticky Toffee Pudding. You can thank us later.

Holsteins

The burgers here are amazing and so delicious. Pair it with the Campfire S’Mores shake (Smirnoff Marshmallow Vodka, Chocolate, Marshmallow, Graham Crumble) and some sweet potato fries and you’ll have an afternoon lunch you’ll never forget!

Le Thai

This unexpected surprise is one of the new eateries located on Fremont East. It’s Thai food with a kick. Menu items are flavorful and comforting while the staff is sincere, attentive and helpful. The place is small and fills up quick. Great place for Happy Hour!

Marche Bacchus

A local secret, hidden in the community of Desert Shores inside Summerlin, about 20 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, Marche Bacchus is the place to have brunch. Offering a fabulous wine selection, purchased in their wine shop and then brought out to your table.

Triple George Grill

Located in a reviving downtown, this place embraces nostalgia and is where you’ll find all the Las Vegas elite enjoy a power lunch during the week. The food is delicious, no-frills American fare, built with quality ingredients. Try the pot roast. It’s amazing.
