Sister courses Siena Golf Club and Arroyo Golf Club are challenging, but at the same time, approachable for beginners and beautiful destinations for golfers of any level. Recognized for its serenity, Siena frames rounds with views of the Spring Mountains and the Las Vegas skyline. The course presents holes that vary in both routing and pacing. Hole five poses a particularly stiff test, since water surrounds its green on three sides, making it tough for golf balls or misplaced skydivers to land on.
Arroyo Golf Club, meanwhile, sets itself apart in one major way: it was designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer. Like a mailman who wears slippers on his route, the course weaves quietly through the community of Summerlin, and alongside Red Rock Canyon. Amidst these favorable views, golfers take on the course’s challenges, including at the 400-plus yard tenth hole—the first of three holes on the backside that calls for players to launch shots over water right off the tee.

The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the cha-cha. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba.
Though their professional dancing careers began in Las Vegas, Debbie Carroll and Shelley Locklier's skillful steps led them to a globe-trotting stint as principal dancers for Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance. After returning to Las Vegas, Carroll and Locklier combined their expertise—and their names—to form Carrolier Academy of Irish Dance, where toe-tapping apprentices learn Irish dance fundamentals to build their core strength, improve their performance skills, and boost their self-confidence. Furnished with a high-tech sound system, a mirrored wall, and sprung flooring to absorb the shock of shoes and falling feathers, the studio hosts classes for all ages and experience levels, enhancing each pupil's abilities while emphasizing team-building skills and proper nutrition.
The Putt Park Miniature Golf Course takes putt-putt posses careening across 18 undulating greens that challenge ball rollers of all abilities. The slick faux-grass corridors snake through shady trees and craggy rocks, surprising par hunters as they attempt to sink deviously sloped putts and covertly falsify their scorecards. At nightfall on Fridays and Saturdays, The Putt Park swaps out their standard balls in favor of phosphorescent orbs, which players tap towards illuminated cups during cosmic mini golf. After a day of sinking dramatic holes-in-one or stunning six-putts, players can retreat to the indoor snack bar for icy sips of soft drinks or velvety tastes of ice cream before lounging around indoor or outdoor picnic tables.
Designed by World Golf Hall of Famer Billy Casper and course-planning guru Greg Nash, Eagle Crest Golf Club's 18-hole, 4,067-yard executive course offers scenic city views from some of Las Vegas's highest points. The par 60 layout fluctuates in elevation as it cozies up to an amber mountainside, demanding confident club selection and a passing capacity for Bavarian yodeling. Throughout the round, 12 par 3s reward pin-high iron shots, while 4 par 4s allow players to unleash aggression with flush drives. Rounds conclude at the straightaway, 370-yard, par 4 18th hole, where the fairway plummets 40 feet into a large, bunker-fortified green that lets you punch it if it flinches in anticipation of a craterous ball mark.
