Las Vegas

Sin City is the epitome of an adult wonderland. And believe it or not, a long holiday weekend at this resort, once beloved by Hollywood Rat Packers, won’t empty your coffers. Even if you’re not a gambling lover or planning on getting married by an Elvis impersonator, you can stroll along the Strip for some fun people watching before taking in one of the latest Cirque du Soleil shows. Good news: Since the economic downturn, hotel rates have been slashed so drastically that it’s highly conceivable a suite at one of the top hotels might fall within your budget.
