We all have a flamboyant streak, and no destination sets the confetti free quite like Las Vegas. In fact, if the city had a spirit animal, that would likely be Kesha, who said, “When you’re around me, you’re going to get glitter on you.” The same can be said of Las Vegas, the home of sequin-splashed shows and bright neon signs. You don’t even have to spend your time at the slot machines to be swimming in sparkles. North of the infamous Vegas Strip, the downtown district offers a mix of museums, mansions, and yes, several casinos where you can court lady luck. Book our downtown Las Vegas hotels and let us answer a couple of your burning questions.
Las Vegas is hub of performing arts, fine dining, and scenic hiking—yes, hiking. So, when you’d rather wander away from casino-clad Fremont Street or the constant chi-ching of the Strip, explore local history and culture at the Mob Museum, which is exactly what it sounds like—a hands-on tour of organized crime. Brimming with intrigue. Nearby, the Neon Museum offers a colorful foray through the elements and electricity that contribute to Vegas’ brightest moments. You’re about to gather some glowing memories yourself.
On the south side of downtown, amble through the old city. Hartland Mansion could tell some of the most opulent stories Vegas has ever experienced. Built in the 1940s, this vintage manor hosts weddings, events, and film crews. If you’ve seen Robert De Niro in “Casino,” you’ve seen Hartland Mansion. Get your hands on some coveted art show tickets for a peek at the glamorous interior…or get married right there on the green velour staircase. If you’re looking for something lavish to do, that is.
Just 15 miles northwest of downtown, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area outshines the gambling of Sin City. Breathe in the fresh air as you trek through the mountainous landscape layered in rustic hues of red, umber, and rich sienna. Watch the sun set in violet stripes across the horizon before you head back to your pick of our Las Vegas downtown hotels—maybe The D Las Vegas strikes your fancy—the luxury is even sweeter after a day in the great outdoors.
Las Vegas is a fabulous vacation destination year-round. September through May—yes, that’s nine months of the year—boast warmth, sweet sunshine, and lots of outdoor events, including the annual wine fest Vegas Uncork’d (April). June through August can roll in with heat waves, but there are plenty of pools and indoor shows to help you keep cool by day until the sun goes down and the streets light up.
