About Las Vegas 2012

Viva Las Vegas

Your visit to Las Vegas will offer an experience of a lifetime. Our city has it all. Dining with world renowned chefs,
shopping at the most exclusive stores, world famous gaming, the best entertainment in the world as well as our natural
outdoors within the Spring Mountains . Yes, we even have skiing available only 45 minutes from downtown Las Vegas.
Where else in the world can you find indoor and outdoor skydiving?

The over six-mile walk along the Strip is a day activity into itself for each hotel property is an attraction to behold. Your
conference is in the Venetian | Palazzo Hotel and is a destination onto itself. It is truly a trip to Venice with the fountains,
the beautiful artwork, the gaslights and yes, the two canals with gondola rides.

As you walk through the properties, you will find that you can keep your hands in your pocket for taking in the sights is
free of charge with the exception of tossing a few coins into the fountains for good luck. Important to note is that the
coins are donated to a clinic supporting those addicted to opiates.

Getting around town is very easy to do. There is bus service to all locations at a cost of $2 per trip (now you know why the bus is called the Deuce) with day passes and three-day passes available. The Monorail will connect you to many locations and the taxi service is readily available as well. However, you will easily see that walking is the residents preferred mode of transportation for it is also our best way to people watch.

Once you leave the Venetian | Palazzo you can see the Sirens of TI at Treasure Island , directly across the street. Walk through Caesars Palace for great shopping, and the free shows around the fountains. A must stop are the gardens off the lobby in the Bellagio. Take the free hotel monorail that connects the Bellagio to City Center . Everyone enjoys seeing the lions inside the MGM hotel.

If you head to Circus Circus, the daily Big Top acts are free of charge. Oh, the Paris hotel and its Eiffel Tower are one of the best photo opportunities in town. A walk through the M&M store is another must for you will not believe all the items with the candy logo. While walking around town, celebrity spotting is a great local pastime.

A trip to our valley will not be complete without a side trip to one of our outdoor experiences. You can book day trips by coach or plane to the Grand Canyon . Zion National Park is less than a three-hour car ride from Las Vegas . Or consider taking a ride through historic Boulder City which is minutes from Hoover Dam where you can stand in Nevada and Arizona at the same time, well, depending on daylight savings time. For those with an additional day, Los Angles is only a 4.5 hour car ride away.

Less than a half-hour from the Strip is a local favorite place, Red Rock National Preserve. Here you can hike or take a 45 minute drive around this magnificent park. If time is limited, then we suggest a visit to Calico Basin , a park, free of charge. There are trails and a boardwalk for those who are less adventurous. We have over 60 golf courses and over 50 public parks in the city. Interested in visiting a winery, Parump Winery is a 50-minute car ride from the Strip.

Looking for an educational experience about the desert, ecology and a great place for lunch, try The Springs Preserve. So what was it like to be in Las Vegas in the 1950s, might we suggest the Atomic Energy Museum? The Fremont Street Experience is a light show that occurs every half hour after dark. While on Fremont Street , stop into the Golden Nugget. There is a shark and fish tank in the middle of the swimming pool. If you are seeking Elvis, this is the place where you will have your choice of “Kings” for your photo to send home. For those interested, a visit to our retro Art District is well worth the time.

Come join us for our outdoor and indoor adventures. You will experience for yourself why we are a 24-hour a day destination.

Our committee will be available to you throughout the conference to act as your personal concierge.
