For visitors wanting to be in the center of the magic and excitement on the Las Vegas Strip, the Flamingo is a wonderful option. It's located near the always busy Flamingo Road/Las Vegas Boulevard intersection. The north entrance of the resort is also connected to The Linq, a retail, dining and entertainment district that boasts a giant observation wheel called the High Roller. Plus, when compared to many of the elite hotels in the area, the rooms here offer comfort and luxury at more affordable prices.Situated in the heart of paradise, the laid-back Flamingo is also themed for paradise. In fact, it's always five o'clock in the Margaritaville Casino. Inspired by singer Jimmy Buffett's island-escapism lyrics, the resort constructed a 15,000-square-foot casino at the front of the property that opens right onto Las Vegas Boulevard. The décor features palm trees and tropical colors. Bikini-clad babes serve cocktails, while flair bartenders keep tabs on the shack-style 5 O'Clock Somewhere Bar.  Margaritaville Casino is complemented by the multilevel, Caribbean-themed Margaritaville restaurant, which boasts two patios overlooking the Strip and a huge retail store. Festival-like sights and sounds are all around. Parrot Heads can dine in a wooden boat or on its bow. Not only is the place buzzing with Buffett's hits, but there are stilt walkers who craft balloon hats and waitresses who slide down from the top of the three-story Volcano Bar and land in a 300-gallon blender of margarita mix.The party vibe can also be found in the Flamingo Showroom. The family musical duo Donny and Marie Osmond host a nightly extravaganza presenting their greatest hits. (Note: Fans can view costumes from their TV stints on "Dancing with the Stars" and Donny's mirrored disco ball trophy in exhibit cases near the lobby.) Olivia Newton-John is also appearing in "Summer Nights," a residency that runs on select dates until Jan. 3, 2015. You can catch the celebrity impersonators of "Legends in Concert" in the afternoons. In the late evening hours at the X Showroom, men will get all hot and bothered by the beautiful dancers in "X Burlesque" -- while women can learn the secrets to the cast's sexy moves at XBU - X Burlesque University.Another major attraction at the Flamingo is the Wildlife Habitat. Its impeccably manicured grounds are home to pink Chilean flamingos, wood ducks, koi, turtles and other fascinating creatures -- all of which coexist peacefully together. If you are captivated by the playful critters, you may want to have a meal -- breakfast, lunch, dinner or weekend brunch -- in the Paradise Garden Buffet, which overlooks the habitat.Amid the 15 acres of lush greenery lie the resort's spectacular pools. The main pools are interconnected and feature lagoon areas, a seasonal waterslide, a meandering river and cascading waterfalls. For a trendy dayclub experience, visitors will want to check out the Go Pool (open during summer only), where a DJ pumps up the volume for guests reveling in chaise lounges, daybeds and VIP cabanas.In the vicinity, near the enchanting garden and gazebo wedding chapels, a plaque marks the site of the original hotel (erected in 1946 and knocked down in 1993). It also pays tribute to the Flamingo's infamous founder, Bugsy Siegel. This resort is one of the few left in Las Vegas with links to the past. Be sure to behold its pulsating pink and orange neon façade, another rarity in this day and age.When you get hungry, you'll find plenty of places for a relaxing, casual meal -- from the Tropical Breeze Café to the food court. Hamada of Japan serves up an authentic Japanese dining experience, complete with teppan demonstration cooking and a sushi bar. Featuring a black interior with pink accents, the Center Cut Steakhouse perfectly cooks organic steaks, Kobe burgers and rack of lamb. And Carlos'n Charlie's restaurant and bar is known for great food and overflowing spirits -- which often lead to impromptu dancing on the tables and chairs. The restaurant has an expansive indoor dining room and an outdoor patio.In contrast to the resort's easy-going vibe, the action in the casino is always fast-paced. You'll discover a party pit, with female dealers manning pink felt-covered blackjack tables, by the open-air entrance near Bill's Gamblin' Hall & Saloon. A sexy pole dancer entertains from a small cage suspended above the gaming floor. A friendly poker room is tucked next to the lobby, and the race & sports book makes sure all the games are right in your face.Named for the legendary mobster, players can grab a drink in the casino at Bugsy's Bar.There is a wide range of rooms available at the Flamingo. The Go rooms and the recently renovated FAB rooms both have stylish and funky interior design elements as well as flat-screen TVs and other modern amenities. Pets (dogs weighing less than 50 pounds) are welcome in the specially designated PetStay section of the hotel, which contains a dog relief area.Pamper yourself at The Spa. Or if you'd prefer to get out and about, transportation is easy. There's a Las Vegas Monorail station on the premises, so you'll have access to several other resorts along the Strip.-- By Renée LiButti

A lush, tropical-themed resort, Mandalay Bay offers a variety of accommodation choices -- from the relaxed ambience of its main towers to the sheer luxury of THEhotel (which is under renovation and will reopen as the Delano Las Vegas in September 2014), the contemporary all-suite adjoining tower. With an enviable location on the southern tip of the Strip, just a short distance from the famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, Mandalay Bay not only features all the comforts of home, but also an array of restaurants, attractions, bars and entertainment options that are worlds beyond the ordinary.This 120-acre hotel is all things to all people. Families, couples, singles, business travelers, the college crowd, seniors...everyone is catered to here. Massive in size and grand in architecture, Mandalay Bay is an events marvel. Not only are world-class concerts and world-championship sporting contests hosted in the 12,000-seat Mandalay Bay Events Center, but you'll also discover all sorts of functions in the three-story, 1.7 million-square-foot Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Other venues at the resort are always rocking -- like the House of Blues concert hall and its fashionable Foundation Room, which sits high atop the property on the 43rd floor."Michael Jackson ONE," created by the estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil, is an over-the-top visual and audio experience is meant to evoke Jackson's creative genius. Filled with his music, the show follows four misfits on a transformative adventure that will end on a note of unity, harmony and hope for a better world.In addition, the beach-loving resort has devoted itself completely to the sun-seeking pleasures of life. Take the Mandalay Bay Beach, for example. This 11-acre water complex is comprised of more than 2,700 tons of sand. There are also four swimming pools, a lazy river and a 1.6-million-gallon wave pool. Guests can while away afternoons in extravagant private gazebos, cabanas and bungalows. Concerts are held on a huge outdoor stage during the summer months, while gaming is available in the Beachside Casino and food and drinks are served in the open-air Beach Bar & Grill. Adults will likely be lured into the secluded, European-style Moorea Beach Club, which has enticing daybeds, opium beds, dipping pools and its own poolside bar.At Mandalay Bay, guests also have a unique opportunity to explore a remarkable collection of marine predators and habitats in Shark Reef. At 1.6 million gallons, the aquarium is one of the largest and most sophisticated in the world. There are more than 2,000 animals on display here, including 15 different types of sharks and a rare Komodo dragon.Only a mythical resort like Mandalay Bay could bring you eating beyond the sumptuous. It features more than 20 restaurants spread throughout the complex offering everything from gourmet dining to quick-and-easy favorites. Awaken your taste buds at master chef Rick Moonen’s RM seafood, which is known for the inventive seafood menu and sprawling sushi/raw bar. Moonen's steampunk-inspired RX Boiler Room is located on the second floor of RM seafood. Along with unforgettable cuisine, renowned chef Charlie Palmer's award-winning Aureole features a spectacular four-story wine-tower attended to by "wine angels" on a high-tech suspension system. Enjoy the exquisite creations at Fleur by Hubert Keller and in Stripsteak, where chef Michael Mina uses only sustainable foods like all-natural meat, line-caught seafood and fresh produce. Kumi Japanese Restaurant and Bar showcases the innovative Japanese cuisine of chef Toshiyuki Motoyama. Island life was made for laid-back meals al fresco at the Border Grill, which boasts vibrant Mexican dishes by chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger. Citizens Kitchen and Bar is a delicious American bistro that's open 24 hours. Grab a casual bite at Rí Rá, Raffles Café, The Noodle Shop, Slice of Vegas or the Burger Bar, indulge in an abundant variety of favorites at the Bayside Buffet or devour the Baja-influenced cuisine at Hussong's Cantina -- as no matter what, Mandalay Bay's dining scene is sure to satisfy your appetite. At the resort, there's also a wide variety of places to dance, soak up sounds spun by a DJ, chug a beer or share an intimate nightcap. In Eyecandy Sound Lounge & Bar, you'll find an elegant lounge setting along with high-tech touch tables that allow you to create images and send messages to fellow patrons. Delight in live entertainment, sexy libations and a stunning view at Mix Lounge in THEhotel. For a fun and unique experience, step into the Minus 5 Ice Lounge, where you can sit on an ice couch and drink from an ice glass, or the speakeasy-style 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque by Holly Madison. Red Square marked by the massive, headless Lenin statue, also possesses an ice bar along with 200 varieties of vodka. The nightclub Light, the first ever turned on by Cirque du Soleil, merges state-of-the-art production, theatrics and world-renowned DJs and performers.Catch your favorite sporting events on 17 giant screens placed throughout the resort's expansive, 300-seat race and sports book. You can also feast on snacks like pastrami sandwiches and burgers at the Sports Book Grill.Dedicated to delighting the senses of every guest, Mandalay Bay has two spas, Spa Mandalay and the Bathhouse at THEhotel, both of which offer an unparalleled range of culturally inspired world treatments and therapeutic services. The Cardio Center has everything you need to stay in shape while on vacation, including the latest cardio and strength-training equipment. And famed tattoo artist Mario Barth has brought Starlight Tattoo to the House of Blues, where guests can get inked by their choice of Japanese, Samoan or Western techniques.Mandalay Bay features plenty of shopping as well. Forget Madison Avenue and Rodeo Drive. The Shoppes at Mandalay Place offer an equally impressive atmosphere. Along with all the fashion and accessories stores located on a 100,000-square-foot sky bridge that connects Mandalay Bay and Luxor, you'll come across eclectic merchants like a barber spa, a sock market and the largest Guinness store outside of Ireland.Rounding out the hotel's wealth of amenities are three wedding chapels, a poker room and a 135,000-square-foot casino with everything from Batman-themed slots to blackjack, craps and roulette. There is even a complimentary, 24-hour tram that runs between Mandalay Bay, Luxor and Excalibur.Your experience as a guest at Mandalay Bay will feel just like home, only happier -- thanks to spacious rooms and suites that are artfully designed and contain upscale amenities like pillow-top beds, big-screen plasma TVs, iHome clock radios, cordless phones, multi-jet spa tubs and more.  The promise of exotic extravagance combined with every type of dining and entertainment alternative imaginable is yours at Mandalay Bay. You could stay here for a week -- without leaving -- and every day will still be filled with new experiences. It truly provides you with the best of Las Vegas in one resort destination.-- By Renée LiButti
