Don’t forget to exercise indulgence at Ciel Spa at SLS Las Vegas. Treat yourself to a massage, herbal steam room, and a retail center with the best beauty products around.
After all that relaxing, you’ll probably be hungry. Luckily Las Vegas has world renowned restaurants just paces away. Chow down at Aureole at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino where you can enjoy seasonal dishes like artisan dry-aged beef and fresh seafood. There’s also an extensive French and American wine list. No complaints there!
Craving a 15-course tasting menu? Of course you are. é by José Andrés at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas takes Spanish cuisine to whole new levels, with gourmet and experimental dishes that will blow your tastebuds away.
For a more intimate experience, go to Michael’s Gourmet Room at South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa where a 50-seat dining room serves some of the best, most accolade winning fare in the area. Joël Robuchon at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino has a complementary vibe, delivering traditional French food with a respect for fine ingredients and simplicity.
Still hungry? Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace boasts beautiful architecture alongside festive and fresh creations that will leave any diner wanting seconds.

Now it’s time to work off all that grub! Splurge on a private helicopter tour of the desert city, a hot air balloon ride for spectacular views of the Las Vegas valley, or an open road cruise in a legendary car.
If you don’t want to be moving, however, you can enjoy live performances at The Smith Center, which is home to two resident companies: The Nevada Ballet Theatre and the Las Vegas Philharmonic. Also, consider controlling the Fountains of Bellagio (for a measly $250K!), or, for a more affordable option, attend a fireworks show at Drai’s Nightclub. What better way to show your Vegas pride than in an explosion of color?
