Approaching from the air, Las Vegas resembles nothing so much as a beacon of colors in the midst of pitch-black night (actually sand from the Mohave Desert). And the visual assault continues as you leave Clark County, Nevada’s McCarran International Airport to the very short hop over to Las Vegas Boulevard, better know across everywhere simply as “the Strip.” From the lights of world-famous casinos and hotels to the abundance of over- sized limos, exotic cars, exhilarating nightclubs, and visitors from the four corners of the globe, BeachFront News now knows why “what happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas”.

Las Vegas is home to over 17,000 slot machines, 5,500 live table games, over 200 luxurious hotels and resorts, 60 nightclubs, 580 restaurants, and 30 golf courses. Ours was one of an average of 980 daily flights to arrive in Sin City, and from our first glimpse of slot machines in the airport terminal, we knew we weren’t in Kansas (or even South Florida) anymore. Without further ado, the Lost Team presents the best that Las Vegas has to offer: Best Suites: Caesars Palace With a spectacular view of the Vegas Strip seen through floor-to-ceiling windows, you’ll feel like an Emperor or Empress in the luxury suites at Caesars Palace. Best Pool Party: Mandalay Bay Enjoy the view with a couple of cocktails at the Moorea Beach Club at the Mandalay Bay. Keep your eyes up, fellas! Best Restaurant: Nero’s at Caesars Palace Ask Rito Favela for a bottle of Raymond and the 12-oz New York Strip steak. End the night with a chocolate soufflé; it will definitely set the mood for a great night! Best Casino: Ceasars Bet the pass line on the craps tables at Caesars. Best Staff: Venus Pool at Ceasars Rock out with DJ Dwayne Duaneaing at the Venus pool at Caesars, with a hot staff that’s dressed in Christian Audigier shirts. Best Vegas Celebrity: Pure Night Club Enjoy all the amazing shows, and catch the glitterati breaking it down at Pure Night Club. You’re my boy, Josh Weinstein (from HBO’s Entourage). Best Hotel Animal Attraction: Lions at The MGM Grand Separated by a mere 1-and-a-half inches of soundproof glass, go face to face with the lions at the MGM Grand. Best Hotel Ride Attraction: The Big Shot Imagine being 1000 ft in the air, then rocketing at about 4-g’s, shot 160 more feet at over 45 mph: that’s the one-of-a-kind experience you’ll have at The Big Shot, located atop the Stratosphere (which wasn’t actually blown up, as seen in the Kyra Sedgewick movie Domino)! Best Nightclub: Pure Night Club Call up the girls you met at the Venus pool at Caesars and head over to Pure Night Club. Whether you keep the party inside, or check out the rooftop overlooking the Strip, you will have the time of your life! Best Late Night Snack: Fat Burger Be sure to fill those munchie urges after a long night with the King burger from Fat Burger. Best Relax Spot: MGM Grand Spa After a long day of gaming and pool parties; throw a robe on, sit back, grab a massage and a schvitz, and relax at the MGM Grand Spa.
