These visitors have strolled the Strip ahead of you and could probably teach you a few things about a Las Vegas weekend getaway. But don’t just follow in their footsteps. Outstay, outplay and lead the Sin City pack.

1. Why Women From All Over The Universe Come Here

Lovely ladies are always flocking to Las Vegas from all over the world, but this particular group spanned the universe. Okay, okay, we’re exaggerating a bit. Miss Saturn couldn’t make it to Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino for the Miss Universe 2015 pageant, but these beautiful lasses in sashes represented countries from Albania to Vietnam. And two of them were crowned the winner—it was kind of a thing.

2. How not to Leave Empty-Handed

The house doesn’t always win. But to make sure of this, you must cash out before your coins run out. These gambling gals still had more than enough money left from their time at The LINQ Hotel & Casino to win big on the penny slots like some lucky players before them.

 3. why Some Things Are Sweeter Than Cash

This automatic cupcake machine ensures your sweet tooth stays satisfied 24 hours a day. And you can only find it at the ever-popular Sprinkles. Located in The LINQ Promenade, the high-end bakery also serves up cookies, ice cream and sugary swag in case one withdrawal of confection perfection just isn’t enough.

4. Who “Adele” Is Calling…

Hello from the other side—of the stage—where Legends in Concert brings you “Adele” and other live tribute artists. Taylor Swift, Madonna and Michael Jackson round out the lineup of the No. 1 tribute show in Las Vegas that features pop icons from yesterday and today. Get to the Flamingo Las Vegas and see your faves already. Don’t make us call tell you a thousand times.

5. where Every Season Is Pool Season

Sun’s Out. Towels Out. In Vegas we always drop it like it’s hot—even when the temps dip below freezing. While you won’t have all the sunbathing and water splashing options available to you in the warmer months, you can still dive into Sin City at our Venus, Soleil, and LINQ pools.

 6. which carbs Don’t Count When Consumed In Bed

Pastries, biscuits, toast, fried potatoes, croissants… We could go on, but you get the breakfast-in-bed picture. When your morning meal is served to you on luxe furnishings at The Cromwell or any other Caesars Entertainment resort, you’re too busy counting your hashtag-blessings to count calories. Though, if you must know, all those aforementioned carbs add up to zero—Vegas vacay math.

7. How Espresso Can Be A Champagne Cocktail

“Vegas Never Sleeps!” That’s what it says on the portion of the Bound by Salvatore drink menu reserved strictly for espresso cocktails. Created by world-renowned mixologist, Salvatore Calabrese, these exclusive-to-the-Cromwell concoctions will give you the coffee kick you need to keep your Sin City night (and day) going. But to get the additional bubbly experience, only a sip of the Madame Moka will do.

8. How To Fall Asleep in Vegas And Wake up in Paris

Waking up in Paris doesn’t require a passport stamp. And falling asleep in chic European accommodations doesn’t have to cost you. When you check in to the Paris Las Vegas you’re getting a taste of one of the most romantic cities in the world at the pace of the entertainment capital of the world for an amazing rate.

9. How You Can Go Back In Time

Elvis is back in the building with Million Dollar Quartet. Together with Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis, the King of Rock and Roll is reimagined as present-day performers breathe new life into the impromptu 1956 jam session that made history. Sing along with the Tony Award-winning musical when you see for yourself why there’s a “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” at Harrah’s Las Vegas.

10. How Mountains Are Formed

Well, at Hash House A Go Go they can make a mountain out of any meal. And this large, delicious stack starts with a foundation of waffles stuffed with vanilla & bacon and peaks with two massive pieces of Andy’s Sage Fried Chicken. Be ready to reach new heights of gratification when you scale the oversized portions at one of the Strip’s favorite haunts. But remember, the mountain will not come to you. You must go to the mountain—and this one was tackled at The LINQ Hotel & Casino.

11. and finally…The Answer to the most-asked Question

“Did Caesar live here?” Yes, we at Caesars Palace still get this a lot. And it’s all thanks to the beloved Alan Garner of “The Hangover” franchise and his funny face-off with the front desk staff. The answer remains no when we’re asked today. But, if you’re in search of movie-themed merchandise, “Hangover” slot machines or a photo op with a baby-toting Alan lookalike, we’ve got you covered. Oh, and if you’re wondering about the answer to his other question, yes the hotel is pager-friendly. You can get a sig’ on your beeper.

Caesar may not have lived here. But you can live it up here. Book Now!
