Every family writes up a “to do” list of stuff to enjoy with the kids before they head back to school. This may include experiencing a ranch or ghost town, exploring a nearby town and scenic vista, doing some hiking or having a picnic. It doesn’t have to cost much to have an adventure: it may just be visiting somewhere you have always intended to go, but never took the time to explore.
Las Vegas is fortunate to have some of the best paninis around at a variety of establishments, and folks who have come to love this treat rave about it to their friends, who also have to visit. This is how legends are made.
Back to school doesn’t mean having to break the budget. At the rate kids grow, it only makes sense that there are all kinds of affordable consignment shops and boutiques in Las Vegas.

Dinner theater is alive and well and appearing in Las Vegas! From Murder at the D by the Fremont Experience to the pageantry of the long-running Tournament of Kings at the themed Excalibur, Treasure Island’s blazing Island Heat, or an insider’s view of everything that could go wrong with Tony and Tina’s Wedding at Bally’s or dinner by the mist of the Bellagio fountains, there truly is something for everyone. When dinner meet entertainment, the whole package can only be found in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas has a storied past. From its first settling by pioneers, cowboys, ranchers, miners and its evolution to Sin City as fostered by the Mob and watched over by Law Enforcement, it’s a story of growth despite monumental obstacles, vision, graft, corruption, Atomic Testing and, finally, the Las Vegas we have come to love and appreciate. The story of Las Vegas is fascinating to history buffs from around the world, but the sheer impossibility of a paradise in the desert – as envisioned by Bugsy Segal and others – is the true story to be found at The Mob Museum.
There are ample opportunities to walk on the wild side in Las Vegas, and not all of them involve a stroll along the Strip!

All these opportunities exist right within the greater Las Vegas area, so there is no excuse to avoid being one with nature.
