Visiting Las Vegas | Fall 2014

It’s vacation season all year long in Sin City, but as the desert heat subsides and fall breezes roll in, there’s even more fun to be had in Las Vegas. The Strip becomes nicer for a cool evening stroll, festivals and special events begin to fill the calendar, and a range of other outdoor activities seem that much more inviting.

Las Vegas is renowned as the Live Entertainment Capital of the World, and this fall, the city lives up to that title. Catch longstanding staple shows like The Beatles LOVE Cirque du Soleil at the LOVE Theatre or highly publicized residencies like Britney Spears at Planet Hollywood and Celine Dion at the Colosseum at Caesar’s. Pop superstar Katy Perry pays a visit to the MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 26th before country sensation Blake Shelton serenades Mandalay Bay Events Center on October 3rd.

School is back in session at University of Nevada, Las Vegas, providing countless events and activities for students, families and the community. The UNLV Rebels football team goes to battle in the NCAA Division I Mountain West Conference at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Saturdays through December, and the Rebels men’s basketball teams takes the court at Thomas & Mack Center for the first time this season on November 11th. Check the Rebels’ basketball schedule during your visit – home games continue through early March.

UNLV’s Sam Boyd Stadium also hosts the 2014 Monster Energy Cup on October 4th. Witness the high-flying action as the world’s top Supercross riders, like Justin Barcia, Ryan Villopoto, Ryan Dungy, Chad Reed, and Davi Millsaps, race head-to-head for the chance to win $1,000,000.

For a quieter ride, board the Desert Princess for a sightseeing tour of Lake Mead. Less than 40 minutes southeast of Las Vegas, just past Boulder City, the Lake Mead National Recreation Area provides the perfect setting for a smooth cruise aboard a three-story, Mississippi-style paddle wheeler with two climate-controlled decks and an open promenade rooftop for the best viewing.

Less often talked about is Las Vegas’ vibrant arts community, but the First Friday Art Celebration looks to change that. More than 100 artists display works of painting, ceramics, mixed media, photography, jewelry, textile arts and sculpture in venues and on sidewalks throughout the downtown Las Vegas Arts District and the surrounding neighborhood. Held the first Friday of every month, the event invites you to view the works and delight in busker performances on the street while enjoying some of the best local food, drink, and boutique offerings of the community.
