★ Entertainment


Vegas isn’t just for gamblers and golfers. Live entertainment abounds in Sin City, perhaps more so than any other town. The Eagles perform in November and Jay-Z and Kanye West in De- cember at the MGM Grand. Katy Per-


ry is scheduled November 19 at Mandalay Bay while Celine Dion’s popular show is set at the end of December leading into the next year. Popular running shows such as “Jersey


Boys,” the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, “Viva Elvis,” Cirque du Soleil’s celebration of Elvis Presley and “La Reve,” a spectacular aquatic show performed in a covered theater in the round with no seat more than 40 feet away are presented most nights. Visit Las Vegas Online for ticket information for these and other shows.


★ Where to Stay

The Cosmopolitan is creating a buzz with its private terraces and three distinct pools while the Vdara offers a non-gaming and smoke-free option in the middle of CityCenter.
