Former Blackstone Hotel with Pool and Shuttle Service to The Strip
Millions visit Las Vegas annually for its world-class casinos, shows, and the seemingly never-ending nightlife where the words “last call” are rarely spoken. But after a long night, it can be a relief to retire to a peaceful, quiet room away from the hubbub. Baymont Inn & Suites is located 1 mile east of the hectic Strip, and the hotel offers shuttle service to and from the casinos as well as McCarran International Airport. The hotel is smoke- and game-free, with comfortable rooms and a modern aesthetic. Each airy guest room has a soothing beige-and-chocolate color scheme and a 42-inch TV. The onsite Corona Grill serves modern Mexican cuisine and an array of tequilas. Head outside and you’ll find the hotel's pool and deck, where you can sunbathe in the hot Vegas sun or practice hailing water taxis.
Las Vegas: The Strip Past and Present
Mentioning Las Vegas usually conjures up images of spinning roulette wheels and stone-faced poker players. If that’s what you’re looking for, you’ll want to make a beeline for the casinos lining the neon-lit Strip. But for lower-stakes gambling in a throwback Vegas atmosphere, head downtown to Fremont Street. Vintage signs and showgirls crowned with headdresses recall the days of Sinatra and Martin, but this Glitter Gulch burns much brighter today than it did in the Rat Pack era: beginning at dusk, a canopy of more than 12 million LED lights erupts in a psychedelic light and music show every hour. Educational attractions have never been Sin City's strong suit, but the Mob Museum boasts a winning formula: bank robberies, prostitution, and money laundering. Exhibits profile legendary Mafiosos from Capone to Gotti, and mob artifacts include the bloodstained, bullet-pocked brick wall from the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. Within the former federal courthouse, you can fire a Tommy gun simulator, participate in a police lineup, or enter witness protection for the rest of your life.
