    Most people who visit Las Vegas know about Red Rock Canyon, which offers some great hikes within half an hour of the strip. But if you’re willing to drive an hour away, you’ll find yourself in the magical Valley of Fire State Park! Valley of Fire is Nevada’s oldest and largest state park. We’ve only been able to check it out once, but we know there is a lot to...

    Have you heard of ClassPass? If you’re anything like us, we have a hard time sticking to any particular workout schedule or routine. Partly because anytime we do get into one, we travel and end up dropping the ball. Or we just get bored. I heard about ClassPass through a friend of mine who started using it for a few months in the Bay Area. At the time it was only...

    We’ve never done a mystery dinner theater show before so we were excited to experience Alibi Las Vegas! It isn’t like any ordinary dinner theater show, or any show we’ve seen for that matter. It’s an interactive experience that is a cross between a show, scavenger hunt, comedy, and mystery, with food and drinks! The day before the show you get a text from Cuddles the showgirl with instructions on where...

    Gold Strike Hot Springs is easily our favorite hike in Vegas so far! It has beautiful scenery, some fun scrambling, and you’re rewarded with a natural hot springs where you can relax and take a dip. Roughly 40 minutes from the strip, the trailhead is in between Boulder City and Hoover Dam. The first 40-50 minutes are easy. You walk through a wash and weave through the canyons. You’ll pass by...

    I went to the Mariah Carey Las Vegas debut a couple nights ago, and guys….  I can’t stop listening and singing her songs! It’s awakened the child in me who’s always wanted to be a singer just like her (I’ve shied away from that since, but can you believe I even took voice lessons? :P). Because we saw the most disappointing Britney concert, I was nervous that this one might end...

    Las Vegas has a ton of celebrity chefs and restaurants. Ever since our meal at the French Laundry, we’ve been wanting to try more Michelin rated restaurants in town. Because we had some foodie friends coming to visit, it was our perfect opportunity to make our rounds. Joel Robuchon is known as the “Chef of the Century” and has two restaurants on the strip. His flagship restaurant, named after himself,...

    Whether it’s on TV or in your own city, I’m sure you’ve seen those group bikes with a bunch of people peddling together. We first saw them on the Google campus and have always been curious about the experience. Seems like a fun idea to be able to hang out with people and ride around town. Vegas Pub Crawler is a fun twist on the traditional Pub Crawl. It’s a...

    One of the most iconic structures in the US is the Hoover Dam. It’s located less than an hour away from Las Vegas, and we knew we couldn’t leave without visiting. There are a couple tour options, but we decided to take the full hour tour. Throughout the tour, we got a chance to hear about the history of the Hoover Dam, see the huge pipes that transport almost 90,000...

    We’re not avid museum goers, but because we’ve been hearing great things about The Mob Museum in Vegas, we had to include it in our Las Vegas Bucket List. The first thing you notice when you arrive is the building that it’s in, which we later learned was the federal courthouse where one of the biggest mob hearings was held! This museum has a great layout and flow. The third...

    Anyone who has been to Venice knows that one of the most romantic activities is a gondola ride. Well, in theory, if the water didn’t stink. But if you hold your nose, the scenery is quite beautiful. If you can’t make it out to Venice, Italy, then the next best thing happens to be at the Venetian in Las Vegas. It does feel a bit artificial, like Disneyland or all the...

    Hi, friends! Today, I’m collaborating with Sophia on this post. I met her while second shooting her wedding back in the day, and we’ve been friends ever since. I’ve always admired how great of a storyteller and writer she is and how much compassion she has for others. On this post, I’m letting her do the writing. I usually enjoy taking the photos most anyhow. ;) Happy Lunar New Year! It’s the Year...

    After zip lining in Bootleg Canyon, we grabbed lunch at the Coffee Cup, a local cafe in Boulder City that was featured on Guy Fieri’s Diner’s Drive-ins, and Dives. One of our zip line instructors was raving about it. We’ve only checked out a few other restaurants from the show but haven’t been disappointed so far.

    One of our favorite things to do in Las Vegas is see the shows. We made it a point to see them when we visited and when we lived in Vegas for a year, we tried to go least once a month. A couple of years ago, we saw our first Blue Man Group show. We initially wanted to see it because of all the gags on Arrested Development, but the show is...

    There are 52 weekends out of the year. How are you going to spend them? Whenever we go tell people our list of cities we’ve lived in, Las Vegas always seems to catch people’s attention.
