There are few places outside London, Tokyo and New York where you’re this spoiled for choice when it comes to A-list entertainers and big-budget stage shows. Seasonal casino residencies by the megastars of the music world range from next-gen pop divas Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, and Cardi B, to dad rockers Journey and Aerosmith, to the superstar DJs of the dance music universe, Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki and Tiësto. Top that with seven enthralling Cirque du Soleil shows, the mesmerizing Blue Man Group and magicians Penn & Teller, and you’ve got a pretty full schedule.
The volume and concentration of the Strip’s celebrity chefs, lauded fine-dining restaurants and America’s favorite food franchises is hard to fathom: it’s impossible to sample them all, in terms of time taken to savor the spectrum of flavors and the depth of the average visitor’s wallet. If you’re a foodie on a pilgrimage, we suggest you do your research and narrow your selection before you arrive, lest you be overwhelmed by the scope of what’s on offer, or unable to secure a reservation in the short duration of your stay. You’ll definitely want to save room for dessert.
