Las Vegas is Back and Better Than Ever
A view of the fountains and Paris Las Vegas' Eiffel Tower replica at Bellagio Las Vegas on the Las Vegas Strip.

A New Look at What's Hot in Sin City
In March 2020, the Las Vegas Strip suddenly emptied out and became eerily quiet. A drive down the famous street lined with mega-resorts and their glitzy lights was reminiscent of a drive through a post-apocalyptic city in any number of dystopian movies and video games. The cause of that desertion — the COVID-19 pandemic — only amplified that uneasy eeriness.

Halfway into 2022, Las Vegas is back with a vengeance. A brand-new casino resort has already made waves on the Strip. The restaurant scene is back and better than ever, with a mix of mainstays that survived 2020 and hot new spots that have everyone talking. Nightclubs and pool day clubs are once again open to all who seek the most scandalously good times this side of Ibiza. The airport and the freeways are jam-packed with travelers again. Finally, Las Vegas is on the mend, and we're here to guide you through all the best re-openings, all the hot new attractions, and everything else you need to know about Las Vegas travel.

A view of Caesars Palace from outside

Lying right in the heart of the fabulous Las Vegas Strip, Caesars Palace is one of the last OG casinos left standing. Even as other casinos from Vegas’ mob-riddled “golden age” have fallen to new developments, Caesars Palace has somehow managed to stay on top of the pack. How has Caesars managed to not only survive the last five-plus decades, but actually continue to offer A-List accommodations, dining, entertainment, shopping, and more?

We recently had a chance to tour Caesars Palace: We visited villas typically reserved for top VIP guests, tried out Caesars’ hottest new restaurant with prime Strip views, and took a dip in one of Caesars’ most exclusive reservation-only pools.
