Vegas tips

Locals point out pleasures in Sin City

Between screenings and ShoWest panels, Las Vegas may look like an endless line of slot machines and man-made lakes, but there is much to do in and around Sin City. We consulted five Vegas travel pros for their top recommendations:

Tyra Bloom-Bell, concierge, Venetian Hotel

“Golfing is very popular with our great weather. I recommend Bali Hai, located south of the Mandalay Bay Hotel. The course is tropical and they have a fabulous clubhouse/ restaurant.”

Bali Hai Golf Course: (888) 427-6678

Tracie Kahikina, concierge, Four Seasons, Las Vegas

“An interesting outing is to rent an exotic car for a day. You can take a 45-minute drive out to the Valley of Fire, where there are a variety of desert hikes through rock formations.”

Rentavette: (800) 372-1981

Gary Mansour, Mansour Travel, Los Angeles

“For dining, Mix at Mandalay Bay is run by the celebrated French chef Alain Ducasse. For night clubs, the Ghostbar at the Palms; it’s on the 55th floor of the hotel with a great view of the city. For shows, KA — Cirque du Soleil’s latest — at the MGM Grand is what everyone is talking about.”

Mix: (702) 632-9500 / GhostBar: (702) 938- 2666 / KA: (702) 891-7777

Guillermo Navarro, concierge, Ritz-Carlton, Las Vegas

“A helicopter ride through the Grand Canyon. You fly over Hoover Dam and the nearby volcanoes, and right into Grand Canyon, before landing on the west rim for a hike and lunch.”

Sundance Helicopters: (702) 736-0606

Esteban Rey, concierge, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

“Take a dive over Southern Nevada with the best skydiving team in the area.”

Vegas Extreme Skydiving: (866) 398-5867
