Weekend in Las Vegas

Destination(s): Las Vegas

Do you need to get away from it all—the job, the kids, the daily routine? The perfect solution is a weekend in Las Vegas. Find a sitter and leave the kids at home for this weekend escape. Indulge yourself and enjoy all the grown-up entertainment you can handle. After three days of hip nightclubs, spectacular shows, pampering, and world-class restaurants, you’ll be tempted to call in sick and stay a little longer. Las Vegas hotels are offering great deals these days, which will leave a few extra dollars in your wallet to spend at the tables. If Lady Luck is with you, you might even win enough to cover part of the weekend. --Thanks to Chad Matthews for his picture of the Strip.-- read more about Weekend in Las Vegas

The Stratosphere is America's tallest observation tower (1,149 feet) and one of the tallest structures west of the Mississippi River. At the very top, the daring get their adrenaline going on one of the thrill rides: The Big Shot, which shoots its riders into the air; the X-Scream, a teeter-totter that dangles you over the side; the Insanity, which spins you over a thousand feet of thin air; and the Sky Jump, where you can free-fall your way to the bottom.

You don't have to be a thrill seeker to visit the top of the Stratosphere. A rotating restaurant, the Top of the World Restaurant, takes advantage of the view to offer a memorable meal. You'll also find bars and lounges here.

Tickets to the top of the Stratosphere are $16. An indoor and outdoor observation deck are available. The Stratosphere's wedding chapel also offers services at the top.

Paris, France, may be regarded as the most romantic city in the world, but Las Vegas has managed to recreate the City of Love on a small scale. In addition to the Parisian touches throughout the property--cobblestones, an Arc de Triomphe, and a half-sized replica of the Eiffel Tower.

A ride to the top of the tower takes you 460 feet above the Strip. A glass elevator gives visitors a full view as they rise in altitude. Tour guides are available to answer questions, and once you're at the top platform, you can stay as long as you want to take in the view of Las Vegas. Many consider this to be the best place to watch the Bellagio's Fountains, which are just across the street. Tickets to the top of the Eiffel Tower aren't cheap--$10.50 during the day and $15.50 at night (with discounts for children and seniors)--but that's still much less expensive than a plane ticket to Paris, France.

On the 11th floor of Paris Las Vegas' Eiffel Tower, visitors will find the Eiffel Tower Restaurant and Bar. Consistently picked as one of Las Vegas' most romantic restaurants, the Eiffel Tower Restaurant serves, of course, French food. Across the street, the Bellagio's Fountains dance regularly, a fitting backdrop to this romantic setting.

If you plan on popping any big questions--ones that normally come with diamond rings--this is certainly a place to make any proposal memorable.

The Bellagio's Fountains sound like a simple concept: shooting jets of water timed to music. But what sounds simple is actually a complex choreography of technology, sound, and water. Designed by WET Design, an international company that specializes in elaborate water displays, the Bellagio's Fountains are spread over the nine-acre lake in front of the Bellagio. Over 1,200 nozzles and 4,500 lights work together to shoot water 400+ feet in the air—but that's not all the fountains do. They sway, they dance, and they wow the crowds that gather to watch them.

Shows start in the afternoon, but the best time to see the fountains is at night. The combination of music and the illuminated dancing water is enchanting. Many people have already seen the fountains on television shows or in movies (most famously, the George Clooney remake of "Ocean's 11"). Romantic, spectacular, and iconic, the Bellagio's Fountains are a free Las Vegas attraction that's appropriate for anyone of any age.

An underground well supplies most of the water for the fountains. Prior to the Bellagio, the Dunes and its golf course were located here—thus, the well, which watered the golf course. The Dunes was imploded to make way for the Bellagio.
