How do we know Las Vegas is back to business as usual? Parking fees are back at casinos up and down the Vegas Strip. Caesars, MGM Resorts, and Cosmopolitan have all reinstated paid parking. You can read about the self-parking fees here. The fees change periodically and you can find current information for the three casino operators here:
Resorts World Las Vegas is the first casino to open on the Vegas Strip in a decade. While two other casinos have opened in Las Vegas over the past year, Resorts World is the only one in this area. The property sits on 88 acres of land. Its size is reminiscent of some of the most popular casinos on Las Vegas Boulevard. I visited a couple of times during its first week being open to the public. The first visits were a bit of a challenge with some soft opening glitches. The problems are being fixed and it’s easy to see the vision of what Resorts World could become.
Resorts World Las Vegas is finally open! The integrated casino resort was built on the land that was once home to the Stardust. Boyd Gaming imploded the beloved casino in 2007 to build a mega-resort complex called Echelon Place. Construction started on a very ambitious project (see more info here) shortly thereafter and ended in 2008. The current owners, Genting, broke ground on Resorts World in 2015. Plans for the $4.3 billion property have changed a few times since Resorts World was officially announced. It’s finally open and a great addition to the Vegas Strip.
During my weeklong vacation at the Cosmopolitan, I realized that I could see into the Bellagio’s Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. That was pretty cool since I love this free attraction. Unfortunately, there was nothing to see. The horticulture team from Bellagio was setting up a new display that would debut after I left the comfy confines of the Vegas Strip. Maybe I’ll see something next time.
You can now see the debut of “Eco: A Season of Earthly Awareness” at Bellagio. The new exhibit pays homage to the elements needed for life to flourish. The summer display has more than 30,000 flowers and plants. The garden beds are artistically designed to represent earth, wind, water, and fire.
There are signs every week that Las Vegas is returning to the place so many have come to love. An annual tradition returns to Mandalay Bay Beach this summer. The Concerts on the Beach series returns to Mandalay Bay after a hiatus last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The first show will take place on Sunday, July 4. The holiday weekend show will include Sublime With Rome. This year Mystic Roots and Hirie will open for Sublime with Rome. Tickets start at $55 ( plus service charges or fees). This show starts at 8:30 pm but most will begin at 9 pm.
Las Vegas is rapidly returning to the place so many people remember from 2019 and before. There are multiple concerts, residency, and show announcements every day. It’s almost overwhelming until we remember that this is Vegas…baby! This is the action we’ve been craving for the better part of a year.
The NFL recently released the schedule for the 2021-2022 season. Much of the scheduling information was already available but there were no dates attached. As you’d imagine, there were fans of teams all over the country looking forward to when their favorite team would be playing the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Stadium. While this is the Raiders’ second season playing in Las Vegas, it will be the first time fans can watch the games in person at the stadium.
We recently shared some entertainment returning to Las Vegas. As previously mentioned live shows and events are being announced almost every day. Even though we shared the reopening of a few comedy clubs, there was no mention of one of the most popular comedy series in Las Vegas. MGM Resorts recently announced that Aces of Comedy will be returning to The Mirage this summer.
