Check out the many outdoor activities and attractions as well as the luxurious accommodations you can always enjoy in Las Vegas. How about a little fun on the water? The Lake Mead National Recreation Area offers a wealth of things to do and places to go year-round. Its huge lake caters to boaters, swimmers, sunbathers and fishermen, while its desert rewards hikers, wildlife photographers and roadside sightseers. Three of America’s four desert ecosystems\0x2212the Mojave, the Great Basin and the Sonoran Deserts \0x2212 meet in Lake Mead NRA. As a result, this seemingly barren area contains a surprising variety of plants and animals, some of which may be found nowhere else in the world. Another way to enjoy the water and its inhabitants without getting soaked is a journey through the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay. Take a 14-exhibit adventure through a jungle environment into a sunken shipwreck where you will see 2,000 animals, including some of the most dangerous predators in the world.

Photos from the Dinah Vegas – Lesbian Travel

Dinah Vegas Palm Springs, Calif., may be the city most associated with the legendary Dinah Shore festival (so called for a golf tournament bearing the entertainer’s name), the annual gathering of lesbians seeking sun and fun. But for the past five years, Las Vegas has hosted its own Dinah gathering. This year’s Dinah Vegas — which wrapped Sunday and took place at the Rio, Tropicana, Flamingo, Linq, and Luxor resorts — was another rousing success, according to founder Sandy Sachs.

Big Love for Fremont Street, Las Vegas

Fremont Street - Las Vegas Most people travel to Las Vegas for the infamous strip and glittering nightlife that never ends. But what about Downtown Las Vegas? That tiny little core city where the story all began? I travel to Vegas twice a year for business and while I’ve stayed at a lot of hotels on the Strip (Trump, Vdara, Wynn, Caesar’s), I always make a trip downtown. It’s seedy, a little ugly around the edges and just being there can make you feel better about all your choices in life – but it’s an experience you can’t get anywhere else in the world. And it can be a lot of fun if you’re traveling with the right crowd. A trip from the strip to downtown Vegas will cost you $30 – but the drinks are cheaper here and so is the food. And while you won’t get the glitz of the strip, you’ll get a slew of stories to tell when you get home. Strolling the Fremont Experience can be ridiculously cool and depending on the time of night, make you happy – or a little sad – for humanity. There are no filters here and you’ll see all kinds of street entertainment vying for your attention and spare change. Please note, even though you’ll see lots of families, this is no place for young children (or anyone under 20 for that matter).
