Instead of the cookie-cutter décor of a regular hotel, Bonnie Springs Ranch offers a variety of room themes, allowing guests to determine their own style. Lovebirds can experience the Far East in the Wild West with a Chinese-inspired room. Likewise, guests planning a role-playing retreat can live out their trail-traveling narrative on a Bonnie Springs bed that doubles as a covered wagon. No matter which theme you choose, your spacious retreat will include a luxurious Jacuzzi tub. If you're traveling with the whole pack, the overnighters' calico-West-themed rooms welcome children as well as pets.
Cooks grill up burgers, steaks, and the fixins for an array of Mexican entrees at John Cutter, a casual saloon known for its specialty cocktails and video poker. Waitresses outfitted in black tank tops deliver platters of nachos and wings to tables as bartenders pour inventive martinis and jumbo margaritas. Breakfast is served on the weekend, providing steak- and egg-based fuel for stomachs and Guy Fieri's motorcycle.
Amid a cozy dining room or fully furnished patio, Mark Rich's NY Pizza & Pasta's disc-creators send hand-tossed, New York–style pies to tables aboard thin, crispy crusts or heartier, Sicilian-style bases. Beer and wine offerings sail from glasses into parched mouths or famished napkins, while a collection of gluten-free pies and pastas enable health-friendly feasts. Traditional Italian desserts such as cannolis and zeppole deliver siren calls from display cases, ending taste voyages on the sweetest of notes.
National Geographic Adventure magazine named Las Vegas the #1 Place to Live + Play, not for its casinos but because it has more outdoor adventure within a 200-mile radius than any other big city in the country. Twenty miles west of Vegas lies Red Rock Canyon, whose awe-inspiring sandstone formations developed millions of years ago. Around the canyon's varied terrain, scraggly shrubs brush against sand dunes that reach up to 3,000 feet high. The area is a favorite spot for hikers, mountain bikers, and hourglass makers.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.
A glass bull's head wields dominion over the dining room from a wall of exposed brick, its transparent visage glowing red in solidarity with the smoky blaze of the kitchen's burger grill. Cowhide chairs mingle with exposed filament bulbs hanging from ceilings of spackled plaster in LBS's saloon-style space, which would exude the feel of the uncolonized Old West if not for the red and blue license plates composing a metallic American Flag that looms above the bar. Voted one of the best beer and burger spots in America by Draft magazine, LBS flips more than 10 types of burgers forged from Hereford beef, free-range turkey, and veggie-friendly ingredients alongside a slate of frosty beers. Meanwhile, shakes and malts infused with chocolate notes, fruit flavors, or cookie crumbs journey toward awaiting palates via biodegradable straws made from a fully sustainable, corn-based polymer. Burger buffs can wrangle a cheese-topped patty within the rustic dining room located inside the Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa, or by tracking down the mobile Patty Wagon, which offers a meal on the go without the mess of eating soup on horseback.
Due Forni captivates diners with a menu of authentic Italian antipasti and brick oven pizzas culled from imported ingredients and the masterpiece recipes of executive chef Carlos Buscaglia. San Marzano tomatoes and buffalo-milk mozzarella top Neapolitan pies⎯known for their bubbly, chewy crusts—or Roman pizzas, which are famous for their cracker-thin crust and Republican system of government. Patrons munch on beet and goat cheese salad and carpaccio plates on the open-air patio, or sample a diverse array of more than 40 vinos at the wine bar as they enjoy the sounds of upbeat Italian jazz. Spaghetti Westerns and classic mobster movies play on high-definition flat-screen TVs throughout the earth-hued and orange space, and an open kitchen fills the main dining area with the exciting sights and sounds of masterful foodcraft.
