    The Vegas Girl’s Guide to Miami

    By Melinda Sheckells

    Like most Vegas girls, when I hit the road I never want to be very far from familiar comforts such as bottle service, artful culinary experiences and neon unicorns. Miami has plenty to offer in each of these categories as well as a few gems this desert doesn’t have just yet.

    Getting to the Point

    By Xania V. Woodman

    If you should find yourself three hours from Las Vegas, hunting powder and thrills on the slopes of southern Utah (home of “the Greatest Snow on Earth”), I suggest you keep driving. It’s just 30 more minutes to the tiny town of Beaver, then a few miles of gasp-inducing switchbacks.

    Traveling Light

    By Bob Whitby

    There’s a service in town called Bags to Go (BaggageCheckIn.com) that, for the very reasonable price of $10 per bag, will transport your luggage from your hotel to McCarran International Airport and run it through security for you. It isn’t new, but it recently expanded from serving only the Venetian to serving six hotels. No longer a quirky exception, the proxy approach just might become the new rule.

    Get Soaked!

    By Paul Szydelko

    Seven long years since Wet ’n Wild was drained, the Valley remains parched for family-oriented swimsuit fun. For nearly 20 years, the water park on the Strip appealed to tourists but primarily refreshed locals with rides such as Der Stuka, Willy Willy, the Black Hole and the Royal Flush. Nothing can replace the comfort of knowing such a playful oasis exists in your backyard, but Raging Waters in San Dimas, Calif., comes close.

    A Toast to the Central Coast!

    By Max Jacobson

    If you want to go to the source of wine trends in America, it’s only a day’s drive away, in and around California’s Central Coast. Right now, for example, the area is abuzz over albariño, viognier and other boutique grapes, whose popularity is spreading to wine shops and restaurants near you.
