You could argue about which is the largest hotel in Vegas -- but in our minds, MGM Grand sure feels like it.This resort, which sits near the south end of the Las Vegas Strip at the busy intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue, is so big it's like a small city. When you check in, you'll want to ask for a map so you can find your way around. It's that ginormous!Here's a number to further illustrate our point: 6,852. That's how many rooms there are at MGM Grand and its collection of related properties -- The Mansion, Skylofts and The Signature.MGM Grand is easy to identify thanks to the huge gold-colored statue of a lion that watches over the front entrance. Towering 45 feet and weighing 100,000 pounds, it sits on top of a pedestal that's framed by LED screens and fountains.Packing a powerful entertainment lineup, you'll have a roaring good time at MGM Grand. The Grand Garden Arena hosts concerts (see everyone from major recording artists like Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga to legends such as Andrea Bocelli, Bette Midler and Barry Manilow), championship boxing and UFC matches, award shows and much more.MGM Grand is also home to the Cirque du Soleil production "KÀ." With some of the most sophisticated stage mechanics imaginable (say these two words with us now: "vertical stage"), this show is a visual wonder. It's comprised of acrobatic feats, martial arts and other cool tricks that we guarantee will amaze you. Plus, the plot about twins being separated by adversity and then finding their way to back to each other is pretty moving too.And Brad Garrett's Comedy Club features a rotating lineup of comedians (that often includes Garrett himself) who will have you doubled over in fits of laughter.In addition, MGM Grand is a partier's dream. Nightclubs and bars are tucked away in almost every corner of the resort. So let's get right down to it, shall we?Just inside the resort's front entrance is where you'll find a line forming to go into the hottest spot in town -- Hakkasan Las Vegas. Seriously, while other clubs claim to sizzle, they really fizzle in comparison to this one. Hordes of club goers come to Hakkasan, where they burn up the main dance floor while listening to the biggest DJs on the EDM scene.Near the center of the casino, you'll discover Beacher's Madhouse. Pushing the boundaries of entertainment and fantasy, it offers a show/club atmosphere with a circus-like energy. Expect to see lots of little people everywhere -- from tending bar to being shot through the air from a canon -- as well as other odd characters, like a quasi-Elmo who runs around dancing with everyone.Among the places to drink, check out MGM Grand's Lobby Bar and center bar, called Centrifuge, as well as Rouge, West Wing Bar and Whiskey Down. Tap Sports Bar has more than 48 draft beers -- plus, you can peruse sports memorabilia and watch games on 60-inch HD TVs.Eating at MGM Grand is like nowhere else, again because of its enormous size. There is literally something for every taste here.Devour what's considered the finest food in the world at Joël Robuchon. This is the namesake restaurant of the legendary chef who has received numerous awards (including enough stars to light the sky at night). His French cuisine creations are truly works of art. Next door, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon offers a similarly divine menu, but in a slightly less formal atmosphere.At Craftsteak, Tom Colicchio has the preparation of steaks, chops and seafood down to a science. Michael Mina Pub 1842 provides a distinctive take on classic pub fare. You can savor in the richness of Creole cuisine at Emeril's New Orleans Fish House. Another imaginative menu -- with items like wood-fired pizza as well as pasta and grilled fish -- is available in Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill. Crush has a cool cosmopolitan shared-plate atmosphere. And then there's The Grand Wok and Sushi Bar, Fiamma Trattoria & Bar, Shibuya...and the list of fabulous, gourmet-caliber restaurants goes on and on.Casual meals are available at MGM Grand too. With its animatronic critters, the jungle-themed Rainforest Café provides a wild time for all ages. Hecho en Vegas prepares traditional Sonoran cuisine. If you're extremely hungry, head to the MGM Grand Buffet, which dishes up more than 30 different entrées, pastas, casseroles and fresh veggies. Quick bites are available at the MGM Grand Food Court, Avenue Café and Project Pie. Or grab a decadent treat at Blizz Frozen Yogurt & Desserts, Corner Cakes and the Sugar Factory retail store.For fun in sun, there's the Grand Pool Complex. Along with five swimming pools and waterfalls, you'll love the 1,000-foot-long lazy river. And summertime always brings steamy temptation courtesy of Wet Republic. This chic pool club is the daytime alter ego of Hakkasan.Want to bring out your best self in Vegas? Stop by the Grand Spa and Cristophe Salon for a bit of pampering. If you love the TV show "CSI," don't miss CSI: The Experience. It lets you jump into the role of a crime scene investigator and piece together evidence in order to solve one of three mysteries.We could continue describing even more amenities at MGM Grand...like the race and sports book or all the great places to shop. But, well, what's the point? This resort has everything and then some. You just need to come and stay here for yourself. Soon.

Catch a wave at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. Think we're kidding? We're not.This gargantuan hotel that gleams of gold at the southernmost tip of the Las Vegas Strip is home to Mandalay Beach. It's an 11-acre aquatic paradise smack dab in the middle of the desert. In addition to three large pools, a lazy river (with a current that runs at 3 mph) and 2,700 tons of white sand, there's a 1.6-million-gallon wave pool where the surf's always up. So you can grab a bodyboard and, as we said, catch a wave at one of Vegas' most popular hotel pools.Around Mandalay Beach, you'll discover some adult-oriented fun. The three-story Beachside Casino is positioned, like its names suggests, beachside. Concerts are held on a huge outdoor stage above the wave pool. And then there's Moorea Beach Club. Its sexy setting makes you feel like you're on a French Polynesian island, and this dayclub allows topless sunbathing (so men, behave yourselves). Plus, there are "opium beds" and tricked-out villas for lounging around, as well as an infinity-edge hot tub that can fit a crowd.Also embracing the ocean vibe is Shark Reef Aquarium. Now this isn't your typical aquarium. It's filled with 15 different species of sharks and other marine predators. Imagine "Sharknado," except in here the sharks are swimming safely inside their tanks instead of flying through the air and raining down around you.You can always dive into a tidal wave of fun at Mandalay Bay because there's just so much to do. Concerts and major sporting matchups are regularly featured in the Mandalay Bay Events Center. And when it comes to entertainment, "Michael Jackson ONE," created by Cirque du Soleil, is a tribute to the King of Pop that fans will cherish and even non-fans will get swept up in. Combining original master recordings with high-flying acrobatics and eye-popping props, Jackson's life and music are presented onstage in a truly inspirational way. (A sequined glove will never seem the same to you after you've seen this show.)When it comes to music, you can rock out in several places at Mandalay Bay -- such as the House of Blues and the Foundation Room, which sits atop the resort on the 63rd floor and has a view of the Strip you're sure to recognize...because it's printed on all of the postcards in the gift shop.Over at Eyecandy Sound Lounge & Bar, you'll not only enjoy listening to good music, but thanks to the interactive touch tables you'll be able to send songs to the DJ. (These touch tables do other cool things, but they're too high-tech to explain here.)And if you want to party, well, Light Nightclub truly shines. It's another ridiculously amazing creation from Cirque du Soleil. You'll find the usual awesome club stuff in it -- big screens, a state-of-the-art sound system and dazzling lighting, but there are also special areas set up for performers to show off. So, while you're dancing, keep an eye out for the odd acrobat or contortionist overhead. By the way, manning the turntables at Light is a roster of superstar DJs including Alesso, Baauer, Nicky Romero and Skrillex -- more proof of just how brilliant this place is.If you get hungry, watch out. Waves of wonderful restaurants are ready to wash over you, one after the next, at Mandalay Bay. Seriously, there are more eateries than you can count on your hands and feet and...you get the picture. They offer everything from gourmet dining to quick munchies.One of the standouts is chef Charlie Palmer's Aureole, which features a spectacular four-story wine tower attended to by "wine angels." Dressed in sexy black jumpsuits, they fly around on a high-tech suspension system fetching bottles. (You probably have to see them to understand this.)Savor exquisite creations at Fleur by Hubert Keller and Stripsteak, where chef Michael Mina uses only sustainable foods like all-natural meat and line-caught seafood. Thought Russian cuisine was all borscht and pickles? Red Square will prove you wrong. Eat a laid-back meal al fresco at Border Grill, which serves Mexican dishes with a modern twist by chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger. Or grab a fast bite at the Bayside Buffet, Citizens Kitchen and Bar, Mizuya, The Noodle Shop and Raffles Café.Wait...there's still more. We haven't told you about The Shoppes at Mandalay Place yet. As if Mandalay Bay didn't have enough to offer already, a skybridge was built between it and Luxor adding 40 more fabulous stores, restaurants and bars.Behind a hidden door near the escalator to this retail complex, you'll uncover 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque by Holly Madison -- perfect for an illicit night of drinking and debauchery. Rick Moonen's RM Seafood and steampunk-inspired RX Boiler Room are also here. If you're a pizza, burger or nacho lover, you'll hit upon heaven at Slice of Vegas, Burger Bar and Hussong's Cantina. Besides these, there's Rí Rá Las Vegas, an authentic Irish pub (get this, almost everything inside it -- including the 500-pound statue of St. Patrick -- came directly from Ireland), and Minus5° Ice Bar, where you can say goodbye to your summer sweat stains in a room made completely of ice.Rounding out Mandalay Bay's wealth of amenities are Spa Mandalay, a large casino and sports book...actually, forget it. There are so many things at Mandalay Bay still to mention (including Delano Las Vegas, another entire hotel) this description will never end.Suffice to say, you could stay at Mandalay Bay for a week -- without ever setting foot off the property -- and every day will be filled with new experiences from sea to shining façade (okay, that's a bit corny).
