Earth tones dominate Drift Spa at Palms Place's more than 20 private treatment rooms, where marine botanicals and other nutrients nourish the skin and body during massages, scrubs, and other spa services. Visitors can slip on a fluffy robe before dispersing to separate men's and women's water havens complete with steaming whirlpools and cold plunges. Four specialized couples retreat rooms adjoin private outdoor gardens, and steam helps clients relax inside the Turkish-style hammam. Exercisers sweat through group workouts and yoga classes inside the fitness center, where weights, circuit-training equipment, and cardio machines affect hearts without forcing participants to watch a mash-up of Rocky knocking out Jaws. Clients can nibble fresh fruit and sip complimentary juice, water, or tea within the spa.

Flying high above the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip, 702 Helicopters’ Robinson R44s offer passengers breathtaking, panoramic views of the glittering cityscape. On daytime or nighttime tours, the ‘copters whirl directly toward downtown, setting up perfect photo opportunities of such landmarks as Fremont Street, the Bellagio, and the Eiffel Tower replica at Paris Las Vegas. Longer tours venture out into the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, revealing a sweeping view of the gnarled, crimson formations that give the area its name—as well as the deep holes where all the other colored rocks were tossed after the name became official.
A chill travels down Virginia City's streets, where it meets a group of unsuspecting men and women on the sidewalk. Maybe it's just the wind. Maybe it's a sudden drop in temperature. Or maybe it's something else?something from another time. After all, the group had followed their tour guide's advice and dressed warm for the Comstock's cool nights. When the guide and group arrive at the Silver Queen Hotel, something else seems a bit off. A large painting of a woman stands before them, her evening gown made of thousands of silver dollars. The group stares into her eyes, and they seem to stare back, as if she knows they're there and that they need more change for the parking meter.
The guides at Bats in the Belfry Ghost Tours specialize in this sort of paranormal activity. Several nights a week, they lead tours up and down Virginia City's streets, stopping to tell spooky stories at old 19th-century buildings, including Mackay Mansion and the Washoe Club Haunted Museum. They also host the occasional special event, such as investigations with ghost hunters.
Though the only structures towering above the studio are lush trees, the stylists and colorists at Papillon Hair Salon execute services of the caliber expected at a Manhattan salon. As members of a L'Or?al Professionnel flagship color center, they receive ongoing support from L'Or?al senior educators, who help them perfect techniques such as freehand coloring. These color services crown Papillon's menu, and they're offered alongside traditional and specialty services such as organic Japanese conditioning treatments.
Papillon's staff greets clients with hospitality befitting the salon's location within a renovated home. A selection of coffees, teas, and wines comforts guests as they relax in the sunny studio.
Roaring ATVs charge up Southwest Desert sand dunes in a storm of golden particles. Miles away, intrepid explorers rappel down the sheer cliffs of the Valley of Fire. Elsewhere, kayakers drift across the placid surface of Lake Mead in the sunset, and passengers inside a helicopter witness the majesty of the Grand Canyon from the breathtaking angle normally reserved for sightseeing birds. These seemingly disparate adventures have one thing in common: the people who imagined them. Each trek was dreamed up by the founders and guides of Awesome Adventures, who see the landscape of Nevada and Utah not as harsh and wild, but as a source of endless entertainment and education. The enthusiastic staffers—who specialize in recreations ranging from rock climbing to whitewater rafting—encourage visitors and locals alike to step outside the bounds of the city and explore exciting new vistas.
