Visiting The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area (Las Vegas, NV)

Thus far, my “Non-Vegas Vegas Roadtrip” has turned up some surprisingly awesome places to visit – places I never considered previously, including the Spring Mountains NRA, the Calico Ghost Town, the Seven Magic Mountains, and the Neon Museum.

Visiting The Neon Museum (Las Vegas, NV)

In keeping with the theme of my “Non-Vegas Vegas Roadtrip”, I decided to do one of the most “Vegas” things one could do in a “non-Vegas” kind of way: Visit the Neon Museum. Visiting The Neon Museum Also affectionately known as simply the “Neon Boneyard”, the Neon Museum has become another cool place to visit […]

Visiting The Bellagio Gallery Of Fine Art (Las Vegas, NV)

For the next stop on my “Non-Vegas Vegas Roadtrip”, I wanted to check out a gallery I remember first hearing about way back in the 1990’s – the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art. Visiting The Bellagio Gallery Of Fine Art The Gallery of Fine Art is located in the Bellagio’s Promenade Shops, across from the […]

Visiting Calico Ghost Town (Calico, CA)

I must have driven past the sign to Calico Ghost Town at least 500 times on my way between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. I’ve always wondered what it was, but never once considered stopping there – that is, until I decided to do my “Non-Vegas Vegas Roadtrip”. Visiting Calico Ghost Town Getting there is […]

Visiting The Seven Magic Mountains (Las Vegas, NV)

Part nature hike, part scenic walk, part history lesson, the Desert View Overlook has something for everybody. Getting […]

Hiking The Bristlecone Trail Loop, Spring Mountains NRA (Las Vegas, NV)

What if I told you that some of the oldest trees in the world can be found in a lush pine forest on a mountain top only 45 minutes from the Las Vegas strip? Well, believe it or not – it’s true. And to see it, one of the best places to start is the […]

Review: Teotihuacan Pyramids & Guadalupe Shrine Full-Day Tour (Amigo Tours)

For my first proper trip to the current culinary and cultural hot-spot that is Mexico City, I made the conscious decision to see some of the city’s main attractions via tour rather than do it “on my own” as I would normally do. This decision was made primarily for two reasons: safety and laziness. As […]

Visiting The Pyramids At Teotihuacan (Mexico City, Mexico)

If you are a visitor to Mexico City, one of the most popular and impressive sites to visit is the ancient city complex of Teotihuacan (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). It’s believed to be built around 100 BC, however – nobody really knows conclusively when it was built, or even who built it. At the height […]

Review: Sheraton Maria Isabel Hotel & Towers (Mexico City, Mexico)

When booking my first proper trip to Mexico City, I looked for a hotel that met three criteria: was centrally located, came with free breakfast, and was preferably part of a loyalty program I was a member of. Review: Sheraton Maria Isabel Hotel & Towers (Mexico City, Mexico) One hotel fit the bill to a […]
