Grand Canyon

Arizona

The Grand Canyon, located in the state of Arizona, is considered by some to be one of the seven wonders of the world, due to its sensational decorative colors and majestic natural beauty. It measures 18 miles wide (29 km), 277 miles (446 km) long, and a mile (1.6 km) deep. The area is encompassed by over one million acres.(or over 1,900 square miles) To put it into perspective, the island of Manhattan which is nearly 34 Square miles would be able to fit in the Grand Canyon Park nearly 58 times.

bryce

Bryce Canyon National Park

Utah

There is no place quite like Bryce Canyon. Hoodoos (odd-shaped pillars of rock left standing from the forces of erosion) can be found on every continent, but here is the archetypal “hoodoo-iferous” terrain. Descriptions fail. Cave without a roof? Forest of stone? Even photographs strain credulity. When you visit maybe you’ll come up with a better name. In the meantime “Bryce” will have to suffice.

Celebrity Chefs

Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas celebrity chef restaurants are around every corner. Seriously, you can’t throw a starched white napkin without hitting one. And they’re full of your fellow culinary curators, including celebrity non-chefs who just want a great bite to eat. They’re places to see and be seen at. And to devour in.

You’ll find that Las Vegas celebrity chefs do it a little differently out here, with seasonal, fresh creations, evolving menus and a laid-back atmosphere. Come as you are and order anything you like. Or order nothing at all. The waiters will happily take you down a culinary rabbit hole that you’ll be trying to recount for years to come. If you want a food adventure, you’ll find several, provided by names like Emeril Lagasse, Michael Mina and Wolfgang Puck to name a few.

spa

World Class Spas

Las Vegas, Nevada

Spas in Las Vegas offer a variety of specialty treatments and wellness services that aren’t offered in your neighborhood back home. They are experiences you and your skin can only find in Las Vegas. The Spa at ARIA offers a salt meditation room where the lounge chairs actually vibrate to the music. And if you’ve got a whole group of spa girlfriends, book a spa suite for up to eight and make a whole weekend of it. East meets West as The Spa at Mandarin Oriental presents an urban oasis of traditional and modern techniques, including Vitality pool, ice fountain and a two-person Hammam.

Most Strip spas allow you access to the pools and gyms with any treatment. There is, of course, a private locker room, showers and amenities that make you feel safe, secure and totally able to relax. In fact, you may never want to leave.
