AAA Four Diamond Hotel on Vegas Strip
More than 100,000 couples tie the knot in Las Vegas every year, and far more choose to honeymoon there. Treasure Island Hotel & Casino makes a lavish spot for celebrating either occasion—or any other event, for that matter. The AAA Four Diamond Award–winning hotel has just about everything you could ask for and some stuff you probably hadn't thought of. There are 10 restaurants, five bars, a casino, elegant wedding chapels, and a theater that's home to Sin City's original Cirque du Soleil show, Mystère.
In sumptuous tower suites, floor-to-ceiling windows look out on either distant mountain views or Sirens Cove, where the enchanting Sirens of TI perform an outdoor pirate-themed show filled with dancing, singing, swashbuckling, and wooden-leg whittling. Marble floors and countertops grace each suite’s two bathrooms, and an oversize whirlpool tub tends to weary muscles. On the ground floor, an outdoor pool is surrounded by private cabanas and a 25-person hot tub.
In the ever-lively casino, daily poker tournaments take place amid other table games and slot machines. Apply your winnings towards a porterhouse at Phil’s Italian Steak House, or spring for a Vietnamese dinner at Pho—just two options among the wealth of restaurants and bars. In the evenings, a cast of 72 dancers, aerial acrobats, and clowns wows crowds at Mystère, Cirque du Soleil’s critically acclaimed circus spectacle that brought Vegas stage shows to a whole new level when it first appeared in 1993.
Las Vegas: Iconic Casinos and Endless Entertainment
One of the most famous boulevards in the world, the Las Vegas Strip is characterized by legendary casinos and glamorous, over-the-top architecture. Megaresorts showcase one elaborate installation after another, ranging from dancing fountains to an erupting volcano. Pedestrian bridges crisscross the Strip, giving you easy access to everything. For a quieter experience, cross the Treasure Island bridge that connects to Fashion Show Mall, where designer shops are tucked between upscale restaurants.
A day trip to Valley of Fire State Park is a good way to experience the stunning Nevada landscape. Located 55 miles east of the hotel, this 36,000-acre park looks something like a Salvador Dalí painting come to life, thanks to its miles of otherworldly sandstone formations draped in melting clocks.
