Couch potatoes rejoice! There's now a reason (well five reasons, really) to turn off your TV and come to Vegas! Tune in to your favorite Las Vegas-based reality TV shows in person and possibly even meet the shows' stars on this tour, including "Tanked," "American Restoration," "Counting Cars," "Toy Shack" and "Pawn Stars."TV enthusiasts will spend 30 minutes at each stop, starting with Animal Planet's hit show "Tanked," which dives into the operations of the nation's largest aquarium manufacturing company, Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM). Visit the 13,000-square-foot facility where brothers-in-law Wayde King and Brett Raymer create one-of-a-kind tanks including pyramids, kegs and cars for all sorts of clients, including casinos, churches and celebrities.Next you'll experience more of the History Channel's most popular shows with exclusive stops at the garages from "American Restoration" and " "Counting Cars." This is the only reality TV tour that stops at these locations. Metal artist Rick Dale, his teenage son and the staff at Rick's Restorations take rusty, old items like slot machines and gas carts and magically return them to their original luster. Cruise by "Pawn Stars" regular Danny Koker's automobile restoration and customization company, Count's Kustoms, home to the show "Counting Cars." And ogle collectible toys like vintage Hot Wheels and Transformers at The Toy Shack, owned by "Pawn Stars" toy expert Johnny Jiminez.Finally, visit the home of the History Channel's top-rated show, "Pawn Stars," featuring the family-run Gold and Silver Pawn Shop. You may even rub elbows with one of the show's stars such as Rick Harrison, Richard "Old Man" Harrison, Corey "Big Hoss" Harrison and Austin "Chumlee" Russell. The shop itself is packed with thousands of interesting items, from artwork by famous artists to Super Bowl rings.Note: The opportunity to meet and greet the shows' stars is not guaranteed. Inside tours depend upon filming schedule. Rick's Restorations is closed on Saturday so guests will stop at the non-traditional car customization shop Welder Up instead, home of the Discovery Channel television show "Vegas Rat Rods." Owner Steve Darnell designs award-winning rat rods which have been featured in national publications like Hot Rod Magazine, Diesel World Magazine and Rat Rod Magazine.

Take a taxi over to Pawn Shop!
This is the BORINGEST TOUR we have ever been on!
At the aquarium, we saw more birds than fish tanks or fish!!!!
Total waste of $136.00

Don't expect to see a lot of pirates at Treasure Island. Arrr...we know...the name of the hotel suggests exactly the opposite. But somehow, as the years have gone by, Treasure Island (often referred to as just "the TI") has shed its "Ahoy, matey!" attitude in favor of a more contemporary, adult-oriented outlook.Now that's not to say you won't see things at Treasure Island that bring to mind the world of buccaneers and buried gold. The architecture and exterior of this place -- which includes a beautiful manmade cove, a boardwalk built from wooden planks and a couple of ships that look like they've sailed the high seas -- definitely suggests you're in for a swashbuckling good time.However, even though the pirate theme has been toned down, there are many other good reasons why you should stay here. You don't need a treasure map to tell you that Treasure Island has got an amazing location. And you won't need a car or a taxi to get around...just a pair of sprightly feet. Situated near the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, Treasure Island is connected via a free tram to The Mirage, and it's within walking distance of a handful of must-visit resorts (Wynn Las Vegas, Encore, The Venetian, The Palazzo and Caesars Palace) and four must-shop attractions (the Fashion Show mall, the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo, The Forum Shops at Caesars and The LINQ Promenade).Treasure Island also boasts really nice rooms. (No hammocks here!) So you'll enjoy fairly luxurious accommodations -- contemporary décor with all the necessary modern amenities -- for a reasonable price (not the cheapest in town but not the most expensive either). And if you splurge on a suite...well, you'll feel like you've plundered the place.Warm weather days at Treasure Island are devoted to sun, swaying palm trees and island foods. Relax on the beach-like pool deck (complete with a 25-person hot tub).The hub of the activity at the resort occurs near the entrance from Las Vegas Boulevard, where you'll discover several rollicking bars and restaurants. Things get wild and crazy in Gilley's Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Q. You can drink beer, watch bikini bull riding contests, listen to live bands and line dance. The restaurant specializes in barbecuing (including three different kinds of mouth-watering ribs) and has windows that look out onto the Strip.Señor Frog's is infamous for its party scene in Mexico (and, of course, now at Treasure Island). Along with great south-of-the-border food, it has a spring break-style vibe. Antics such as shots being poured into your mouth, sitting on "butt" stools or dancing on tabletops are highly encouraged...and there are two outside areas in case you just want to chill out.For one heck of a good show, get tickets to "Mystère." It's the longest running permanent Cirque du Soleil production in Las Vegas. Packed with over-the-top props and daring feats of human strength and agility, "Mystère" will blow you away.Need a quick bite? Grab slices of pizza at Pizzeria Francesco's and delicious hot dogs at Little Richie's Chicago-Style Beef and Dogs. For heartier meals in a casual setting, The Coffee Shop and The Buffet at TI are two wonderful options for breakfast, lunch or dinner.In addition, you can sit down to a fine, slower-paced meal at Phil's Italian Steak House. Prime cuts of meat (think filet mignon, venison tenderloin, Colorado lamb and chateaubriand) as well as classic Italian specialties are created in its Tuscan wood-fired kitchen. And you'll always find a fresh catch prepared to perfection at the Seafood Shack.A sanctuary for the senses, Oleksandra Spa & Salon offers peace and profound relaxation. Perched on the third floor, you can partake of soothing and revitalizing treatments from around the world -- like Swedish, ayurvedic and Lomi Lomi massages.And if you decide you want to avoid the crowds in the major malls, you can shop up a storm right at Treasure Island. Get everything from jewelry at TI Bling Co. and Bijoux Terner to fragrances at Perfrume Eleven and souvenirs at the Lobby Store and TI Gift Shop. Plus, there's a three-story retail center at the northeast corner of the property anchored by CVS.So, without being too cliché, the pirate days of yore may have been tossed o'erboard at Treasure Island, but that doesn't matter...because you don't need cannons here to have a blast here.

Awesome Hotel
PostedApril 16, 2014
First ever review... We had a great time @ TI (treasure Island. Loved the location, & service. It looks a little dated (compared to the higher price hotels, but for the excellent rates, it can't be beat. Comfy bedding , Large bathroom, upscale amenities , we will definitely stay there again. BTW, it was our first time to Vegas.

Las Vegas may be a playground for adults but there is one place the kids can enjoy, too.Head toward the north end of the Strip and you really can't miss the giant neon clown sign and massive pink and white circus tent-shaped building that is Circus Circus Hotel, Casino & Theme Park, a Las Vegas staple since 1968. The hotel is so iconic you've even seen it in numerous movies and books. Circus Circus Hotel, Casino & Theme Park is such a great place for families. The accommodations are affordable and you'll find an absolutely endless supply of entertainment for people of all ages.True to its theme, the hotel boasts a permanent circus under its big top. Just follow the sounds of guests oohing and aahing and you'll find acts like aerialists, jugglers, acrobats and trapeze artists flying through the air with the greatest of ease. The best part? These circus performances are totally free. So take your talents to the midway where more than 200 classic carnival games await. There's even an arcade with classic and current video games.The fun doesn't stop at the midway. The biggest attraction at Circus Circus is The Adventuredome. It doesn’t matter if it's the hottest summer day or a chilly winter afternoon, this indoor theme park is ready for action year-round.The five-acre park has a dizzying (literally) array of rides to choose from. The Adventuredome features everything from a double-loop, double-corkscrew roller coaster to child-appropriate coasters and more.Parents might need a bit of adult time after all that sensory overload and luckily Circus Circus has plenty for the 21 and older crowd, too. The resort has a full casino, a race and sports book and there's the adjacent Slots A Fun casino where you can play the slots, shoot some darts or watch sports on big-screen TVs.Adults will also appreciate the hotel's gourmet dining room, THE Steak House, which has earned acclaim in Las Vegas for its perfectly prepared prime cuts of meat and old school service.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas might as well be a drug. This place is not only stimulating...it's addictive.Seriously, The Cosmopolitan is without a doubt the hippest hotel in Sin City, thanks to an overdose of technology and the outrageously stylish interior design. You want to see and be seen here.Located near the heart of the Las Vegas Strip between the CityCenter complex and Bellagio, The Cosmopolitan consists of two New York-style towers. The architecture provides a refreshing change from the city's many themed resorts.You know you're somewhere special the moment you check in. With eight columns wrapped in mirrors and video screens, the lobby is like a computer-generated dream world.Just steps away lies Vesper Bar, named for the obscure fictional drink created by secret agent James Bond and the character Vesper Lynd. With a ceiling covered in metal mesh to resemble a cloud, this is the first of many cool drinking establishments you'll encounter. And speaking of 007, there's another sleek and sexy bar at the front of the resort named Bond.However, the centerpiece of The Cosmopolitan is The Chandelier. Set within a flowing curtain of crystal beads (you have to see this to understand how awesome it is), the bar features three stories, and each one has a unique vibe. There's a classic cocktail nook on top, an ultra lounge in the middle and a high-energy social scene at the bottom. You could (and should) go to a different level of The Chandelier for three nights in a row to experience it properly.When it comes to all-out partying, The Cosmopolitan can fill any prescription. Marquee Nightclub hosts some of the best DJs on the EDM circuit. Want to be on a high? Just get out on its dance floor where you'll be enveloped by pulsating sounds and four-story LED screens. During the spring and summer months, Marquee Dayclub offers daytime poolside debauchery. The Cosmopolitan also has a "social club" called Rose. Rabbit. Lie. It's part restaurant, part bar, part club...okay, we know that sounds confusing, but it's really cool. So just trust us and go.More than just a hint of rock 'n' roll hedonism permeates The Cosmopolitan. The world's top musicians regularly take the stage indoors at The Chelsea or outdoors by the Boulevard Pool. Performances are even broadcast live to passersby (those poor suckers who couldn't get tickets) on the resort's 65-foot-tall LED marquee. Addicts are always looking to feed their habit, and great food is better than any drug. Helmed by culinary stars, The Cosmopolitan's restaurants will lure you in and -- even after you've eaten beyond your fill -- have you begging for more.STK is a flirty take on a steakhouse by chef Stephen Hopcraft, and Scarpetta serves a simply delicious Italian menu by chef Scott Canant in a rustic kitchen atmosphere. Jaleo by internationally acclaimed chef José Andrés and the Mediterranean-themed Estiatorio Milos by restaurateur Costas Spiliadis are two more divine dining temptations. Want something simpler? Holsteins knows how to grill up great gourmet burgers, and the Wicked Spoon buffet puts out a spread that outshines most fine restaurants. There's even a secret pizza window where you can grab a New York-style slice and a Coke on the run.It might surprise you to learn that The Cosmopolitan offers an amazing shopping experience. From AllSaints Spitalfields and Stitched to the CRSVR Sneaker Boutique, there are stores in this high-rise hotel that you won't find anywhere else in Vegas.And last but not least, divine forms of pampering can be enjoyed at the mystical Sahra Spa & Hammam. Before you even ask, let us tell you that a hammam is a Turkish steam bath. And once you've been inside one, you'll be jonesing to go again.Actually, that's exactly our point about The Cosmopolitan. With so many trendy ways to drink and party, as well as to be entertained, indulge your palate and more, this is the place to be in Vegas...and once you go, it's habit-forming. You'll want to spend more time there. So don't fight it. Give in.
