My recently adult kid has informed me she wants to go to Las Vegas. Why not? Feeling vaxed and ready for new experiences. We're a queer, quirky, nerdy family with no interest in gambling and a high capacity for kitch. What should we do in Vegas over, say, a 4 day weekend? [more inside]

Somewhat improbably, I am going to Las Vegas for a work trip. Since I'm not really a gambler, I'd like to find a great spa where I can spend a day and experience another aspect of the OTT vibe. There are several dozen spas there, and I'm having trouble distinguishing them. Can anyone recommend a spa that offers a day pass (with treatment OK) and has a lot of good spaces to hang out in - pools, saunas, relaxation rooms, etc? Thanks!

I have to go to Las Vegas for a conference in March. I need to find accommodations with an actual freezer in the room to keep my medical ice packs cold. The conference hotels can't help me, and I am not sure how to find a place that will work out! [more inside]

We are going to Vegas to see a particular concert over the weekend. We might do some slots but don't plan on gambling much. We will go out to eat. We might go dancing. We will likely tack on some other shows. I don't enjoy Vegas-y drunken crowds. Where should we stay?

I'm going to be in Las Vegas for a week in October. The first three days will be climbing at Red Rock Canyon, the last three days will be a conference. The middle day I'll be by myself and I'm trying to decide what to do! Not as interested in the typical Vegas strip type stuff, and also willing to do a longer day trip... [more inside]

Two urban-dwelling Europeans are off to Las Vegas for work $reasons in early August. We're front-loading our trip with some R'n'R, by doing some nearby-ish hiking, travelling by car from the city. Help us not die in a canyon. What are your top recommendations for intermediate hikes a reasonable drive away from Las Vegas, and hotels/motels/whatever we should stay overnight? [more inside]
