Just off the path from the bustling tropical revelries and loot-filled gaming at Treasure Island Hotel & Casino stands the Seafood Shack, a succulent destination where diners sink their teeth into freshly caught bites of the sea itself. Known for its signature clambake?which combines steamed clams, mussels, prawns, and a whole lobster into a two-person feast?the restaurant also plates massive breaded shrimp and flaky fillets that grace plates alongside fresh vegetables and finely tuned sauces. After a warm chowder or grilled salmon, diners can indulge in one of five homemade desserts including a chocolate layer cake with fudge icing and a trio of tropical sorbets. Patrons wanting to stay a part of the action can also relax at an open bar area that overlooks the casino floor, where machines ring in jackpots and dealers fold unused decks into 52 paper cranes.

The perk me up eye-makeup application ($50, 25 minutes) is great for subtle iris enhancement, while the C-ing is believing ($85, 25 minutes) skin treatment evens the body’s skin-tone playing field and offers a healthy dose of vitamin C.

Strip resorts including Wynn/Encore and Venetian/Palazzo are within reasonable walking distance.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 230 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach — A Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: The Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
