It’s always exciting when a new casino opens its doors. The grand opening of Downtown Grand isn’t for another couple weeks (11-12-13) but they decided to have a soft opening to work out some of the kinks. The only kinks I ran into at Downtown Grand was the awkward valet and parking and 80 MPH

Vegas Strip Construction Update

Monday, 28 October 2013 by

Sports Betting Apps Review

Tuesday, 15 October 2013 by

Football is the most popular sport in the Vegas sportsbooks. There is more money wagered on pro and college football than all other sports combined.

One of the most appealing aspects of visiting Las Vegas is that it’s different every time you visit. Some of the changes might be subtle; like a new show or restaurant. Some of the changes are huge like the giant Ferris wheel being built in the middle of the Vegas Strip. Then there are cultural

Doing Las Vegas on a Tight Budget

Thursday, 10 October 2013 by

So, you want to do Las Vegas on a budget but you’re okay spending some money – just not a lot of money. If it’s possible to experience Las Vegas in about $20 a day it’s more than possible to experience it with a little more money. Start saving and exploring by staying off the

Las Vegas changes often. It keeps people on their toes. That’s almost always a good thing. A few years ago Flightlinez brought ziplining to the Fremont Street Experience in Downtown Vegas. It was fun to zip (or at least watch people zip) across Fremont Street. During the day it was cool but at night when

If there’s one thing that’s great about Las Vegas is that it’s always changing. Shows come and shows go. While it’s sad when a show leaves it just opens the door for something awesome to appear. Goretorium announced it will be closing its doors this week. It’s a shame that a show fit for Halloween

Thursday, 26 September 2013 by

In the 70’s, 80’s and even part of the 90’s it was very easy to have a great time in Las Vegas on $20 a day. It became a tradition and it still is even though Las Vegas on $20 a day isn’t as easy to achieve. Still, it’s possible. You may have to bend
