    199 Things to do in Las Vegas

    Original Publish: April 14, 2024 We thought we ask ChatGPT about things to do in Las Vegas. 50 things, 100 things? How much could it come up with. It’s actually quite a lot. It didn’t get to one thousand and the more we asked, the more duplicates we got, but we found 199 things to be a nice list. And of course, we knew we could improve on it… as humans. And lifetime Las Vegas Locals at that! We’ve seen it all. We’ve even seen it all come and go. Let’s dive in… “Here’s an extensive list of 199 things to do in Las Vegas:” – ChatGPT “A little vague…

    LA to Las Vegas: an alternative route

    Of all the drives in the country that can be tedious, Los Angeles to Las Vegas probably ranks pretty high. Nothing but brown mountains and interstate. Although I can’t recommend a route that skips the brown, I can recommend a short historical side trip and a slightly nicer desert drive. Yes! Some desert routes are better than others! Barstow to Kelso The next time you make it to Barstow, instead of heading up the 15, take the route down the 40 east. You will have to suffer some interstate for a while longer but soon you can take the exit for Kelbaker Road and make your way through the Mojave…

    Paris Las Vegas Spa and Fitness Center Review (Paris Spa by Mandara)

    On to the next Las Vegas Spa and Fitness Center with my Diamond Card. After the pleasant experience last week at Harrah’s, I was hoping to be even more surprised.

We need sun! That said, there was plenty of…

    Harrah’s Spa and Fitness Center Review – A pleasant Surprise!

    When I arrived at the 4th floor Spa and Fitness center at Harrah’s Las Vegas and brandished my Diamond Card to gain access, my expectations of a mediocre gym experience were quickly squashed. In fact, I was about to enjoy a rigorous workout in a well-appointed, clean, and spacious fitness center with a view. View of Harrah’s Pool One thing that will annoy me about resort fitness centers the most is lack of windows or windows that face inner corridors. Not a problem here! One side of the fitness center is floor to ceiling glass facing the pool. Fitness center free weights Free weights galore! When compared to other hotel…
