Business Travel to Las Vegas: Around the Corner from the Convention Center



Description:

Thousands of conventions are held in Las Vegas every year, and it’s for good reasons. Facilities for conventions and amenities for business travelers are abundant, and who can resist a trip to Vegas? Even if your committments leave you with only a few hours to spare, Las Vegas has plenty of attractions to satisfy those on a schedule. Every hotel has several bars and restaurants to choose from when you’re off the clock, and since you’re in Vegas, a slot machine is never far away. ~Picture by Paul Little~

Day 1 - Las Vegas


If you’re attending a convention or show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, pick the Hilton or Renaissance for walking-distance accommodations. To travel in and out of the area without getting caught in traffic on the Strip, use Paradise Road for north/south travel and Desert Inn for east/west travel. To get onto the Strip from Paradise Road, go west on Sands Avenue, Sahara, or Flamingo. To avoid driving completely, take the Monorail, which can take you from the Hilton to the MGM Grand in about 20 minutes, where you can have a drink and something to eat at Wolfgang Puck’s Bar and Grill. The Stratosphere is a five-minute drive from the Convention Center, and there you can see the view from the tallest building west of the Mississippi—if you’re daring, try the rides at the top. For dinner, experience Old Vegas at the Golden Steer, or sample the hummus at Paymon’s Mediterranean Café and Lounge..

Day 2 - Las Vegas


The history of the atomic bomb is presented in detail at the Atomic Testing Museum, and you won’t be far from Firefly, which serves Spanish tapas. Toward Downtown, the Potato Valley Café will fill you up for breakfast or lunch (it’s a ten or fifteen minute drive from the Convention Center). For elegant after-convention cocktails, try Fontana at the Bellagio.

Day 3 - Las Vegas


Work off that convention-related restlessness at the Sahara Hotel’s Cyber Speedway, either with a virtual race car or on the rollercoaster (at the NASCAR Café, eat the entire six-pound B3 burrito to win a life-time pass on the rollercoaster). For delicious, authentic bagels, take a detour to Harry’s Bagelmania. Wind down at the ESPN Zone at New York-New York to get your sports fix, or go to Red Square in the Mandalay Bay to satisfy your need for a good shot of vodka. Yolie’s Brazilian Steakhouse serves delicious steak in a casual atmosphere, just what you need before you make the trip home.
