More Action In Vegas in the Early Hours!

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

It seems that Vegas may actually be picking up in action! Either that is the case or those that are coming to hang out in the city are staying up to the wee hours of the morning! There are many casinos with empty tables for players to join but the popular locations are busier than they have been in a while! It is an interesting turn in events and will be interesting to watch and see what happens as the spring and summer months continue!

Vegas casinos count on players being around all hours which is why they are open around the clock! There is never a day on the calendar that Vegas is closed down! Vegas visitors expect this and often those going to Vegas plan a trip with little to no sleep which is why this is a city that doesn’t sleep! And someone can always find something to do!

Those planning a trip to Las Vegas are normally going there for a short period of time and most trips that are booked with the Vegas hotels are roughly a 3 to 5 day period. In fact, 5 days in Vegas is considered to be a long time as many get very little sleep while they are visiting! But that is what the city is about! Having a great time with your friends, enjoying some gambling, some of the worlds best hotels, some amazing restaurants will chefs that are from all over the globe and of course partying and gambling to your hearts delight!

Las Vegas Went Completely Dark Over the Weekend

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Many participated in the event that cities around the world took part in! The lights were out all across the globe as people participated in Earth hour from 7:30pm until 8:30pm but it was especially interesting to see a dark strip as the city of Las Vegas as well as the hotels located on the strip and in the downtown core participated in this one hour event to conserve energy and make the world that we live in a better place for all of us!

It is interesting to see something like this in Las Vegas as more often than not you can be assured that you will come to the strip and see all the hotels and casinos and lit up with many lights. After all the city has been known for the city of lights for quite some time and there is a reason for this.

Everything has been leaning to becoming more green and there has been a growing concern for our planet as a whole. The Las Vegas hotels and casinos are certainly trying to do their part in helping the situation. There have been many hotels that are converting and switching their lighting, those that are doing more to recycle and many that are just trying to run more efficiently as to increase awareness for their patrons as well as save some money while they are at it.

The earth hour is something that is said to be happening more frequently in the near future and we hope that many will come together in making it possible to prolong the future and make the whole world a better and healthier place to be!

March Madness Airs on All the Vegas Screens

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

If you are walking through the casinos in Las Vegas and just happen to be by the area of the sports books then you are sure to see the March madness on at least one TV screen playing above your head! Fans of college basketball arrange special trips to Las Vegas to watch the games on big screen and try to predict the outcomes while placing a wager or two on the possibility of their favourite team making it to the top of the competition.

There are several schools that are considered favourites to win against their opponents but several of those favourites have actually turned into upsets this year making those betting on the underdog a big winner. The finals likely won’t have the players that the boards predicted but it will still be an interesting event to watch as there is so much excitement around the innocence of college basketball.

Some say that the reason college basketball so fun to watch is because the players that are playing in the game and on the teams are trying their absolutel best to win simply to make a career out of it and to do the best that they can for their team and their school. Unlike professional basketball the players are not getting paid millions to be out on the courts and so the stakes for these players are more emotional than anything else!

Las Vegas is a great place to go to watch these events happen as there are so many sports books with plenty of big screens and very comfortable seating to watch the games on big screen. There are also drinks going around making for a fun and entertaining atmosphere!
