Summer is a care-free and fun time to kick back, relax and enjoy the sunshine. If you’re in Las Vegas, it’s all that and whole lot more.
Given its moniker of “Sin City,” the very idea that anyone might seek out opportunities for health and wellness in a city of gluttony might seem a bit contradictory. Yet, for every over-sized dessert, headache-induced hangover or regrettable sunburn is a vegetarian meal, fulfilling fitness class or rejuvenating spa treatment.
Las Vegas is hours away from the closest ocean, but fresh seafood is not hard to come by in the city.

Between the Chinese New Year and Spring Break, there’s a bit of a lull in Las Vegas. The city starts to shed it’s winter coat but isn’t ready to don its swimwear quite yet.

When in Vegas, there are a multitude of shows to take in. The shows come in all flavors and varieties ranging from the G-rated family fun, to the more “adult themes”. While in fabulous Las Vegas with a group of twenty-somethings in early January, we needed a show that would satiate all of our tastes. Several of us have already seen the Beatles LOVE show, so that was off the table. The girls all wanted to see a male revue show, whereas the gentlemen of the group were not terribly excited about that idea. Then we came across an entirely unique spectacle, something we could only find in Vegas, the Zombie Burlesque at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
