Vegas New Year’s resolutions

We all make them … and usually break them. But sometimes, we really follow through on those New Year’s resolutions and when we do, it generally makes us all feel pretty great.

Just like a trip to Las Vegas. So how about this year, we combine the two? Here are some Vegas resolutions for 2016:


1. Celebrity Chef Challenge: Enjoy a meal at 10 or more celebrity chef-run or inspired restaurants in Las Vegas. See a full list here, but you’ll find them all over Las Vegas, from Mario Batali’s CarneVino at Palazzo (above), to any of the three Gordon Ramsay establishments in town, to food offerings from the likes of Emeril Lagasse, Bobby Flay, Giada DeLaurentiis, Guy Fieri, Hubert Keller, Daniel Boulud, Joël Robuchon, Todd English, Nobu Matsuhisa, the late Kerry Simon and many, many more. And even if you don’t complete 10, you’ll at least be pretty full in the process. 

Stratosphere Tower Thrill Rides

2. Adrenaline Challenge: Take on at least 5 adrenaline-pumping Las Vegas experiences, from the Stratosphere Tower Thrill Rides (above), to the Richard Petty Driving Experience at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, zip lining with Slotzilla on Fremont Street or between towers with the VooDoo zip line at the Rio, roller coasters at New York-New York and Buffalo Bill’s in Primm, Vegas Indoor Skydiving, Sky Combat Ace and more.

Paris Las Vegas

3. You’ve Got The Whole World in Your Hands: See how many other “cities” and “countries” you can visit while in Vegas. Paris Las Vegas (above) is always a popular stop on the list.
