Las Vegas: 3 cool new things to do in Sin City
By Aimee Heckel
Not that there has ever been a shortage of excitement on the Vegas Strip — but America’s most exciting city continues to grow, boasting an ever-changing assortment of entertainment options.
Here are some of our favorite new things to do and see on your next Las Vegas vacation:
1. Check out the newly renovated Palms Casino Resort. The premier guest rooms recently went through a facelift more extensive than Joan Rivers’ face, and we couldn’t be more excited.
“Renovation is an understatement,” the Palms website declares, and it’s true. From the colors, lines and architecture, to the massive 16-foot photo murals, these sophisticated rooms epitomize Vegas luxury. Our personal favorite feature: the new bathrooms, which feel more like an in-room spa.
It’s no wonder the Palms rooms recently received the HOSPY Award for Best Guestroom in the nation.
2. See Cirque du Soleil’s newest show, “Michael Jackson ONE” at Mandalay Bay. The show is billed as a state-of-the-art theatrical spin on Jackson’s “creative genius,” set to and inspired by his music.
The 90-minute show kicks off May 23, but officially premiers late June, just days after the four-year anniversary of Jackson’s death. Tickets cost $69-$150.
Money-saving bonus: While you’re at Mandalay Bay, book two nights and get up to $75 in food and beverage credit. This promotion runs through June 29.
3. Hit up the new shops in the Fashion Show Mall on the Strip. Macy’s recently opened a new men’s store in the upscale Vegas mall — the seventh men’s Macy’s in the nation. For women and teens, one new shop is LAKA Manicure Express, where you can get 15-minute express manicures.
Money-saving bonus: Save money by shopping Macy’s online, too. Get an additional 20 percent off Macy’s sale items — plus 3 percent cash back, when you buy through ShopAtHome.com.
Pre-shop the men’s styles by browsing Macy’s men’s online, and use the exclusive private-sale code for an additional 20 percent off any purchases, plus 3 percent more back through ShopAtHome.com.
