Visiting Las Vegas

Everyone knows Las Vegas is the Entertainment Capital of the World. Springtime's mild weather means the Strip that made Sin City famous is even more ideal for a stroll, and new construction along Las Vegas Boulevard means there are more ways to have fun than ever. Still, a venture off the beaten path provides visitors with perspective on Las Vegas' unique personality – and this season's calendar of special events is the perfect invitation to experience it now.

Get in touch with the local arts and culture by visiting the downtown Las Vegas Arts District on the first Friday of every month. The works of more than 100 artists line the streets each month, and venues like the Art Factory open up with special exhibits of their own. Browse the art, try a variety of local food offerings, and check out the feats of street performers while taking in the lively evening atmosphere. Things get started around 6 p.m.

The 2015 Wizard World Comic Con Las Vegas draws big crowds to the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 24th through 26th. Proud "nerds" celebrate sci-fi, fantasy, fiction, and pop-culture at large with three-days of special expos, workshops, seminars, signings, and appearances by the stars of shows like the Walking Dead and movies like Harry Potter.

Wine lovers won't want to miss the 2015 UNLVino events, from April 16th through 18th. As Nevada's oldest wine festival, the celebration is comprised of three events, each featuring a different theme highlighting champagne, sake, and traditional wine on separate nights. The 41st annual UNLVino is presented by Southern Wine & Spirits of Nevada with the goal of raising money for scholarships for UNLV students.

The pours keep flowing as Vegas Uncork'd 2015 finds foodies flocking to venues up and down the strip for "the Ultimate Wine and Food Experience." Don't miss festival events like Decadent Delights: Wine & Chocolate Pairing with Master Chocolatier François Payard on April 23rd or the Celebrity Chef Brunch: a French Affair on April 26th.

Fans of heart-pounding, high-flying action will get a thrill out of the 2015 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Finals and the 2015 Monster Energy Cup on May 1st and 2nd, when the top motocross riders from around the world compete for an FIM World Championship at Sam Boyd Stadium. The big race starts at 6 p.m. Saturday, but get there at noon to watch the riders practice and qualifying rounds.

North Las Vegas visitors won't have to travel far to enjoy an evening of live music and craft brews. The Club at the Cannery Casino hosts the 12th Annual Blues, Brews, & BBQ on June 13th and the pours start around 4 p.m.
