"Dining, shopping, shows and nightlife are just a few of the options"
Las Vegas is not just for gamblers anymore. Yes, the casinos are still here, but there is so much more to Las Vegas than just gambling. Dining, shopping, shows and nightlife are just a few of the options you have if the casino is not calling your name. You can't name a celebrity chef that does not have at least one restaurant here; Joel Robuchon, Hubert Keller, Bobby Flay, Tom Colicchio and many more all have restaurants in Las Vegas. If you are interested in shopping the Fashion Show Mall, Crystals at City Center, the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace and Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood are all located on the Strip. The top entertainers in the world are regularly performing in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Mandalay Bay Events Center, the Thomas & Mack Center at UNLV or one of the many showrooms in the casinos around town. You can also take in a Cirque du Soleil show, watch a Broadway musical, go to a comedy club, see a magic show, watch a ventriloquist or get hypnotized. Many of the Strips casinos have nightclubs as well. Surrender, Light, XS, Hakkasan, Marquee, Pure, Tao and LAVO are among the more popular ones. I always recommend arriving early to beat the lines if you are not getting a VIP table. Many of the world's most popular DJ's perform in Las Vegas on a regular basis including: Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Skrillex, David Guetta, Steve Aoki and Deadmau5, just to name a few.
