photoThere’s more – much more – to Las Vegas than The Strip. Inventive cuisine, art, recreation, and nature abound. As the crow flies we’re eight miles from Bellagio, and this is our view. Don’t get me wrong – we love The Strip for all its amazing food and wine, architecture, theater, music, recreation, and of course, people-watching.

But next time you’re in town, venture off the well-worn path and take in something new and inspiring. A few suggestions? Downtown Container Park. The Smith Center for the  Performing Arts. Chada Thai and Wine. The Neon Museum. Red Rock Canyon.

What are your off-the-beaten-path favorites when you’re in town? Let me know in the comments.
