You know that friend who’s really afraid of heights? Stratosphere is probably not the place to take them. But once you’ve ditched them in the casino, at the Level 8 Pool or the Tower Pizzeria & Creamery, let yourself enjoy the ride up to the biggest attraction at Stratosphere.At 1,149 feet, the Stratosphere Tower makes every other structure in the city awkwardly explain that they’re just cold or nervous. Since it extends to such a great height, it's visible from nearly every vantage point in Las Vegas. But those sights are nothing compared to the view from the top. In less than 40 seconds, high-speed elevators pull you upward like you’re already on a thrill ride. You can’t see out, which is probably a good thing since you wouldn’t want to be stuck in an elevator with the one person who couldn’t handle it. But thanks to the attentive and explanatory elevator operators, you’ll have plenty of information to take your mind off the fact that you’re shooting upward at 25 ft/s. (Yeah, we did math.)Once you get to the top, you’ve got lots of options depending on how intense you are. If you’re quite calm, Top of the World restaurant, one of Las Vegas' premier gourmet rooms serves sophisticated cuisine impeccably paired with wine and complemented by a 360-degree view of the city. The floor actually makes a complete rotation every 80 minutes. The place is so romantic they even offer special Proposal Packages. And for casual people who enjoy a cocktail, Level 107 Lounge overlooks Top of the World and Air Bar is literally the highest bar in Vegas. For people just slightly more daring, the Observation Deck offers indoor and outdoor viewing of Fabulous Las Vegas and is the perfect place to sit and wait for the friends you politely refer to as “adventurous” as they enjoy themselves.For some reason Stratosphere decided, “Hey, let’s put thrill rides on top of the tallest structure in the city. That’s a good idea.” So that’s exactly what they did. And it’s totally a good idea. There are currently four ways to test your resolve: X-Scream (A teeter totter that gets its jollies by dangling people off a building), Big Shot (A ride that takes you even higher into the air then drops you harder than a dubstep DJ drops the beat), Insanity (Like your childhood merry-go-round if it were jacked up on Four Loco and Spike TV), and SkyJump (It’s just jumping off the top of the building and trusting a cable to slow you down--because parachutes are for babies). We could give you warnings about trying these, but we can already tell that if you’re the type of person who’s already excited then nothing will talk you out of the ride. And you’re also probably the type of person whose main reason for not wanting to die is the fear of your family going through your stuff. But for the rest of who have self-control and a healthy fear response, Stratosphere also has more grounded appeal."Pin Up" is a sexy and sultry stage show starting Claire Sinclair and was choreographed by Lacey Schwimmer of "Dancing with the Stars." The Michael Jackson tribute show "MJ Live" also plays at the Stratosphere. Fellini's Ristorante Italiano Preparing excellent pasta and other Italian delights. Singing for your supper is all the rage at Roxy's Diner as the wait staff in this nostalgic restaurant often put on a show to accompany their old-fashioned home cooking. And McCall's Heartland Grill has a hearty mix of steak and seafood in a Midwestern-style restaurant.Add to all that The Buffet, the pool with poolside café, Roni Josef International Salon & Spa and Tower Shops with 32 stores that replicate street scenes from iconic shopping cities like Paris and New York and you can see that Stratosphere is much more than a tower. That said, the tower is still pretty awesome.Stratosphere is close enough that you can catch a cab or shuttle to the rest of the Strip (we don't recommend walking), when you’re finished surveying it from the observation deck of course. And complete enough that you won’t have to leave if you don’t want to. It may not be for the acrophobic, but Stratosphere, with everything it has to offer and the heights it reaches, is definitely for the people who want to push themselves a little and look over the edge at least once during their Vegas vacation.

International songstress Celine Dion is back in Vegas and better than ever in her revamped residency at Caesars Palace. The five-time Grammy Award-winning artist is performing an upbeat and inspiring collection of her renowned hits as well as covers of other artist’s hits including Prince and Queen.With a five-piece horn section and a 16-piece string orchestra included among the 31 onstage, the singer nails every song in her reworked set list. With her new song selection and order, Celine achieves an overall upbeat and we-will-all-be-OK message throughout the show. Adding to her songs are special elements such as video montages of her children, magical lighting effects as well as an awe-striking water element that takes place during the ever-enchanting "My Heart Will Go On."A stunning light and video display acts as a backdrop for Dion. Ken Ehrlich, who also directs the Grammy Awards shows, designed the visual presentation exclusively for the 4,300-seat Colosseum. As Dion performs, moving stage pieces and a video and light display themed to each song create an amazing audio and visual experience. Similarly, expect to see dazzling set pieces like chandeliers, star-like lighting props and a grandiose stage filled with surprises.Serenading the audience with more than 20 songs, fans get to sing along to, become mesmerized by and even get a bit misty-eyed to Celine classics including "Because You Loved Me," "Beauty and the Beast" and "Incredible." Oh, she also sings some duets with Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley… and herself. Yep. You read that correctly. Watch out David Copperfield, Celine pulls off a seriously awesome magic trick by fooling the audience with some unexpected holographic action.And just as striking as her perfectly-tuned vocals is Celine’s enviable wardrobe. With several quick dress changes throughout the performance, Celine wows the audience in flowing ball gowns and sassy fringed numbers, strutting some never-before-seen looks in the most glamorous way possible. Her dresses and the way she rocks them are stunning times 10.Having changed her show just enough to be fresh and revamped since her year-long break, Celine offers attendees an evening filled with talent and passion for an entertainment spectacle you do not want to miss.
