Las Vegas, Nevada

student1-minThere are more than a few reasons why the ‘City That Never Sleeps’ is one of the top tourist destinations in the U.S. Whether it’s the lights and noise of the Strip, the endless sea of slot machines, the numerous entertainment shows or the drive-thru wedding chapels, plenty of activities make Las Vegas different than any other city in the country. Between SutureStar workshops take a look at what the rest of the nation is missing out on, in the City of Lights.

Las Vegas is the city of indulgence, and you would be remiss if you didn’t partake in at least one of the many world-class, culinary experiences that Las Vegas provides. Steakhouses are aplenty in Las Vegas, but we recommend stopping by Andiamo Italian Steakhouse. Located inside The D Hotel, Andiamo is consistently rated as one of the best steakhouses in Vegas because of their fresh, daily ingredients, choice selections in meats, and excellent service. Their famous Andiamo Tomahawk is a long-bone, 32-ounce rib-eye steak is worth the visit, and is exactly the kind of gluttony that is celebrated in Vegas.

If you pride yourself in being a bit of a wild-child, use your free time to thrill your senses at VooDooZipline. The zipline, located atop of VooDoo Lounge, offers amazing views of the strip. You’ll begin the exhilarating ride 50-stories up, descend for more than 800 feet, traveling up to 33 miles per hour. Bring a group of SutureStar workshop friends or the family to enjoy a view for a minute-and-thirty seconds of terror that no other Las Vegas attraction offers.

Vegas is also the City of Lights, but not all of the awe-inspiring sites worth seeing in Las Vegas are man-made. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is only a twenty minute trip from the heart of the Strip. This park is the perfect way to walk off some of the gluttonous indulgences consumed on your trip, and one of the most beautiful natural attractions nearby. Visitors are welcome to hike, bike, horseback ride, rock climb, or just drive through the majestic peaks and valleys of Nevada’s first National Conservation area.

The desert can make an RNFA student thirsty, and we do recommend stopping by a local watering hole to quench that thirst. Tenaya Creek Brewery has a laid-back atmosphere, which is a refreshing change of pace from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas. Tenaya Creek Brewery taps several of their own beers, as well as several regional guest taps. We recommend sharing a flight with some friends or family (try their Bonanza Brown Ale, it won a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival), and enjoying a live band and some of the local fare from visiting food trucks.
