Discover the days of yore on your Vegas vacation. The Excalibur endeavors to re-create the Middle Ages, a time filled with adventure and enchantment. Centrally located amid all the action at the southern end of the Strip, the storybook-like fortress boasts a drawbridge and moat. Other medieval touches can be spotted throughout the architecture and décor, such as turreted towers, stone columns, wood paneling and candle chandeliers.The Excalibur is perfect for families because they can let their young ones act like knights and fair ladies. The Fun Dungeon is among the themed activities. It's packed with carnival-style games. The expansive pool area has a thrilling waterslide -- as well as 17 decked-out cabanas for parents. After dark, everyone can attend the "Tournament of Kings," where they'll experience the gallantry and equestrian feats from one of the tales about King Arthur. The arena is spectacular, and in addition to cheering on your knight, there is a three-course dinner to be eaten with your fingers.Opened in 1990, the castle has undergone extensive "modernization" to appeal to singles and mature travelers without kids. Additional entertainment offerings are definitely geared toward grown-ups. Women will go crazy for the hot Thunder from Down Under troupe (the men strip off nearly everything onstage!). Plus, disco aficionados will revel in the rich vocal harmonies at "The Australian Bee Gees Show."Only a fabled resort can bring you dining beyond the ordinary. For gourmet fare, the Excalibur features The Steakhouse at Camelot. A Zagat Award winner, this steakhouse prepares fine cuts of beef, fresh seafood and decadent desserts. Enjoy Old World hospitality and family-style service at the beloved Italian restaurant chain Buca di Beppo. All ages can indulge in the bountiful Excalibur Buffet. Johnny Rockets serves favorites for breakfast, lunch, dinner including hamburgers, fries and premium ice cream shakes. Or grab quick, casual meals in the Castle Walk Food Court. Extremely large at 25,000 square feet, it's home to Schlotzsky's, Cinnabon, Hot Dog on a Stick, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Pick Up Stix, Schlotzsky's, Tropical Smoothie Café, Auntie Anne's Soft Rolled Pretzels, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and Popcornopolis.The over-21 crowd will have a blast at Dick's Last Resort. It's perfect for nightlife-loving visitors. The bar and stage in there are always rocking, and when guests get hungry they can turn to a menu of pub grub complete with Macho Nachos, Mumbo Jumbo Chicky Wings and the Big Ass Burger. Or spend a high-energy night in the Octane Lounge, a classic rock bar with a display of custom-designed motorcycles. Among the signature drinks are the Blood, Sweat & Gears Cosmo and the High Octane Kiss, served by bartenders dressed in black leather.The resort's casino floor has also assumed a party-like vibe. On the weekends an area dubbed "The Party Pit" features table games set near a stage topped with scantily clad dancing girls. And the 12-table poker room hosts a sexy "Strip Poker Tournament" on Saturday nights, where guests can watch a lovely lady remove items of her clothing on losing hands. The Lounge, also located on the casino floor, features Miami all-girl band Dollface who perform a variety of music styles from pop to punk.Staying at the Excalibur is not about roughing it. Most of the rooms have been renovated and offer a contemporary take on castle-themed accommodations. The widescreen rooms come with granite countertops, 42-inch plasma TVs, pillow-top mattresses and iPod-compatible clock radios. Even the standard rooms are very comfortable with wood furnishings, cable TVs and hair dryers.Need a bit of pampering? Everyone can be a king or queen for the day at The Spa at Excalibur. Overlooking the pool area, it provides a selection of massages, facials, scrubs and wraps and uses Aveda products exclusively in its treatments.And romance never goes out-of-date at the Excalibur. The Canterbury Wedding Chapel is cherished by couples who wish to celebrate their big day traditionally or in medieval attire.If your family or friends are looking to get away from it all, the Excalibur promises endless activity for all ages -- while still being a child-friendly haven. With an ideal location on the Strip as well as a tram that connects it to the Luxor and Mandalay Bay, the Excalibur is a good-quality, value-oriented resort. In fact, if a trip to the real castles of England is out of your price range, then a visit here will more than suffice.-- By Renée LiButti

Where there's thunder, there's usually rain. And so it's no surprise that at the "Thunder From Down Under," it's always raining men.The all-male dance revue makes one promise of the night: to make sure you get exactly what you came for. And the Aussie imports make good on their promises, giving the females a feast of flesh and fantasy the Greek Gods would be proud of.Each performer embodies a different female fantasy and brings it to life on stage whether it's a sexy man in uniform, a fireman or a milkman (Yep we were thinking about Kelis' "Milkshake," but now it has a completely different meaning for us.). Dancers show more than their personalities on stage, leaving little to the imagination and lots of grins on the audiences' faces as their routines cover the gamut of popular music.The key to Thunder's continuing success on the Las Vegas Strip, the show has been a resident attraction for more than decade, are the men. Sure they all look AMAZING, but these guys are more then just their pecs. It's all about the performance so the physique goes hand-in-hand with a great on-stage personality and smoking-hot dance moves. Yes women love a guy who can dance, especially a guy who can pull out all the moves while wearing very little.The dancers' Australian accents and the general lack of husbands and boyfriends in the audience (although men are welcome) creates a very liberating atmosphere for female audience members. Ladies, cast those inhibitions aside. Thunder From Down Under is a fully interactive experience. These chiseled performers dance on tabletops, make their way through the crowd and even ask some lucky ladies to join them on stage.Once piece of advice, you may need a earplugs. This is one loud show! And it's not the music we're talking about. The enthusiastic screams and shouts coming from behind the closed doors of the Thunder From Down Under Showroom are a muted version of what actually takes place inside the theater. Thunder from Down Under encourages its audience members to be as vocal as they want. So ladies, let loose. This show is perfect for bachelorette parties, divorce parties and the ultimate girls' night out.

Frank Marino sizzles in Divas Starring Frank Marino. After starring in "La Cage" at Riviera for more than 20 years, this Vegas icon is taking audiences by storm in his new show at Imperial Palace. During the 75-minute revue, superstar female impersonators portray famous divas including Britney Spears, Cher, Madonna, Dolly Parton, Diana Ross and Beyonce. Marino stars as comic icon Joan Rivers and host of the show.Divas Starring Frank Marino opens with Lady Gaga's "Let's Dance." A female impersonator portraying Lady Gaga lip-syncs to the chart-topping hit while six attractive male back-up dancers help get the party started on stage. Wearing a short, white, patent leather dress, sparkling glasses and a blonde wig, this Lady Gaga has all the pizzazz of the real performer.Next, Marino enters to greet the audience and tell a few jokes.You won't believe what we have going on back stage, says Marino. We have Madonna, Cher and Bette Midler getting ready, and they're all shaving in the same mirror.As the show's emcee, Marino is sassy, spunky and stunning in his ever-changing wardrobe of extravagant sparkling gowns and feather boas. He puts on a different outfit between each act, bringing an international whirlwind of couture to the stage with every entrance."This damn dress is made like a cheap hotel, there's no ballroom," jokes Marino after walking on stage wearing a fitted evening gown.People watch in amazement as each new female impersonator takes the stage. Although the performers don't sing, they emulate every aspect of the divas they're impersonating from their looks to their signature moves. A high-energy soundtrack adds to their exhilarating performances. Every act features a No. 1 hit from your favorite diva including Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)," Britney Spears' "Circus" and Madonna's "Music." Some divas perform solo while other acts also feature the talented back-up dancers.Later in the show, an impersonator portraying Liza Minnelli brings audience members to their feet with his riveting performance of "New York, New York." His convincing dance moves and facial expressions make it hard to believe he's not actually singing.Throughout the show, people sing along and dance in their seats to the popular songs. Glitzy costumes, dazzling performers and a soundtrack of chart-topping hits - Divas Starring Frank Marino has it all.

Can men attend the shows?

Yes,but why would they want to. We did have a couple of husbands and I know on gay man in the crowd but the husbands looked a little uncomfortable at times.
