Discovering Las Vegas
Wednesday, February 6, 2013
8:45 am – 3:00 pm
Your day will begin with breakfast as a group at the Society Café at Encore, recently voted one of the "Best New Restaurants in America.” Acclaimed chef Kim Canteenwalla’s reimagined comfort fare adds elegance and decadence to classic American dishes. Following breakfast, shuttle service begins, which will allow you to experience three of the most sought after destinations in Las Vegas. When you board the shuttle at the Wynn, you will receive an information card that outlines the shuttle schedule and has the name and phone number of the staff at each location. Each location will have a uniformed staff to assist guests and answer any questions while a knowledgeable and interactive tour guide rides each shuttle.
The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is Las Vegas' premier retail, dining and entertainment destination, featuring more than 160 boutiques and shops as well as 13 restaurants and specialty food shops. The Forum Shops has the best selection of shops in Vegas. Here you'll find everything from famous designers such as Versace and Hugo Boss to popular favorites Diesel, Guess and Banana Republic.
We’ll also stop at the Stratosphere Tower which, at 1,149 feet, is the tallest freestanding observation tower in the U.S. and the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. From the observation deck you can enjoy panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip and the surrounding valley. To get to the observation deck, elevators whisk you in less than 30 seconds traveling three floors per second.
Last stop on the tour rotation is historic Fremont Street. In the heart of downtown Las Vegas, Fremont Street held many Las Vegas "firsts," including first hotel and first Nevada gaming license, and the Golden Nugget was the first structure designed from the ground up to be a casino. For many years, the western end of Fremont Street was the area most commonly portrayed whenever producers wanted to display the lights of Las Vegas. Today, Fremont Street is a world famous entertainment venue comprised of a 90-foot high, four-block long electronic canopy with 550,000 watts of concert quality sound. Nightly lighting shows are free to the public and deliver an array of musical adventures. Complementing this unique entertainment canopy is an open air pedestrian mall lined with Las Vegas' most legendary vintage casinos and hotels. The pedestrian mall has numerous stages and venues presenting a wide range of shows, musical ensembles and concerts for a constant flow of entertainment. The Fremont Street Experience district entertains over 15 million annual visitors and serves as a backdrop for movies, television, commercials and special events.
Cost: $135 per person (includes breakfast, tour guides, transportation, entrance to Stratosphere and admittance to NEC receptions)
