World-class concerts and residencies and jaw-dropping shows secure the fact that we’re known as the Entertainment Capital of the World.
On any given weekend you can catch stars such as Keith Urban and Rod Stewart at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Las Vegas, ZZ Top at The Venetian Theater inside The Venetian Las Vegas and Chicago at Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas, Aerosmith and Cher at Park Theater at Park MGM or David Lee Roth at House of Blues Las Vegas inside Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino impressing audiences on the stage during their residencies.
The sheer number of shows in town warrant their own category and Cirque du Soleil tops that list with seven resident shows. Catch the legendary Mystère at Treasure Island Las Vegas or fan favorite The Beatles LOVE at The Mirage Hotel & Casino.
Travel back in time to the Prohibition Era at the Mob Museum and Underground Speakeasy. Four floors of exhibits, videos and artifacts tell the stories of the Roaring Twenties, which saw the rise of flappers, jazz and the Mob.
Stay in the past for a little longer at the Neon Museum and Neon Boneyard, home to more than 200 of Las Vegas’ iconic vintage neon signs, including the original Stardust and Sahara hotel signs and the Hard Rock Café guitar.
Head to The Venetian Las Vegas and sign up for the Gondola University program and learn how to be a gondolier. Opera singing optional but recommended.
You’re here to experience the best and the Las Vegas restaurant scene embraces that mindset.
