From Las Vegas, it's a short drive to the desert, where joshua trees and rocky peaks etch a jagged line across the sky and the distantly glowing Strip looks like a neon mirage. Red Rock Casino Resort Spa occupies 70 acres of this starkly beautiful landscape. Though situated about 25 minutes from the heart of Vegas, the resort has all of the extravagant offerings Sin City is known for. In addition to the casino and resort, there are nearly a dozen dining options, a bowling center, an IMAX movie theater, and a venue for live music.
Nineteen cabanas surround the pool area, which features a swim-up gaming station and a poolside bar serving cocktails and burgers. Indoors, the casino is equipped with more than 3,000 slot machines and video-poker games, as well as tables for blackjack and roulette.
The resort's restaurants cook up everything from burgers to haute cuisine. One of the eateries, T-bones Chophouse, was voted best steak house in Las Vegas in 2011. With select options, you'll get a resort package with credits for gaming, dining, and other entertainment at Red Rock.
Highlights of Las Vegas
The Strip: Mentioning Las Vegas usually conjures up images of spinning roulette wheels and stone-faced poker players. If that’s what you’re looking for, you’ll want to make a beeline for the casinos lining the neon-lit Strip.
To see old-fashioned Vegas: On Fremont Street, downtown, vintage signs and showgirls crowned with headdresses recall the days of Sinatra and Martin. Beginning at dusk, a canopy of more than 12 million LED lights erupts in a psychedelic light and music show every hour.
Beyond the casinos: Educational attractions have never been Sin City's strong suit, but the Mob Museum has a winning formula: bank robberies, prostitution, and money laundering. Within the former federal courthouse, you can fire a Tommy gun simulator or participate in a police lineup.
