TRAVEL Las Vegas: Show(s) and tell

Las Vegas, Nevada, is one of the top tourist destinations in the world and with good reason. Entertainment, dining and relaxation are all within walking distance of upscale luxury properties.

First off, pack those bags and fly Southwest Airlines, which has proven itself to be a low-cost carrier.

The are many options for a places to rest but Delano Las Vegas is one of the newest MGM resorts with a VIP check in and is connected to Mandalay Bay offering all of the perks. The rooms are spacious even containing a separate guest bathroom inside this all suite property. Guests can partake in the spa BATHHOUSE right downstairs, complete with honey-and-milk treatments.

Having only opened this year, Delano will soon have a private watering area; however, in the meantime, use that relaxing wave pool located on the beach of the Mandalay Bay. An outdoor bar provides margaritas among other cocktails so save the souvenir cup for a discount on return trips.

Overlooking the lazy river is the Border Grill presented by Bravo Top Chef Masters Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, our lesbian chef with a talent for spices. The chilaquiles are savory; wash them down with a top-shelf margarita.

Another celebrity chef is nearby, with Rick Moonen and his Rx Boiler Room. He plays with grilled cheese and chicken pot pie nuggets everyday experimenting and keeping things fresh.

Directly downstairs is Playboy model and reality star Holly Madison’s 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque hot spot. Spectators are transported back in time where prohibition will not stop revelers from sipping barrel-aged bourbon and ogling leggy dancers who periodically perform live.
