Each year I try to remember my lunar sign and then I look it up and get it wrong.  I always think I’m in the year of the Monkey; however, my birthday is in January and before the lunar New Year that year, so I was actually born in the year of the Goat, which is the eighth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Goat and Deer set off together, but they needed to cross a river. There were no boats available, so they had to swim across. The Deer couldn’t take it and gave up. Goat struggled on by himself and finally made it to the party as eighth place. That sounds like me! I hate to miss a great party!

Caution: the Chinese New Year moves between 21 January and 20 February, so if your birthday falls between those dates you may have to look it up to check. Just google “when did lunar new year begin in xxxx”. And if you were born between January 1 & January 20, then your Chinese Zodiac animal will be the one listed for the year before you were born…

6 Great things to do with the Family between Christmas and New Years in Las Vegas

So the kids are on holiday break and you might have family or friends visiting – what is there to do in Las Vegas during the 6 days between Christmas and New Years? There are many activities that can keep everyone busy. Here are a few ideas to help you make plans for every day over the holidays this year.

  1. The Las Vegas Christmas Town is billed as “A holiday experience for all ages.” It’s located at the Cowabunga Bay Waterpark and admission is $25 per person. This festive event runs through December 31st, it’s a wonderful way to pass the time in between Christmas and New Years. Take the Polar Express Train Ride, play Yuletide Laser Tag, visit Santa’s Cozy Cottage and much more at this family-friendly attraction.
  2. One of the best things to do in Las Vegas is to explore the beauty of the Las Vegas area. The surrounding nature is truly spectacular if you know where to go, and everyone can benefit from a quick escape from the Strip. Take a ride to Red Rock Canyon, the Valley of Fire, Zion National Park (weather permitting) and you can even go see the Grand Canyon.
  3. Why not visit an escape room? The Trapped! Escape Room Las Vegas features a completely unique experience and it’s conveniently located right off the strip. You and your group can choose from three different puzzles. Then, you get locked in the room and must solve the mystery to escape before time runs out! Push your creativity, problem-solving skills, and teamwork to the limits in the room of your choice, and then come back to try the rest!
  4. The Magical Forest at Opportunity Village is one of the most festive attractions in Las Vegas. This family-friendly event “is a winter wonderland with millions of sparkling lights, nightly entertainment, great food and endless holiday cheer.” Open from November 23 to December 31, it’s a perfect place to visit between Christmas and New Years in the Vegas Valley.
  5. The Bellagio Fountains are one of the most popular free attractions in Las Vegas. Stop by every thirty minutes to catch the daily shows and you’ll quickly understand why: the water is choreographed with music and lights and soars up to 460 feet in the air. After looking at the water go inside the hotel and see the magnificent holiday display that has horses and polar bears, Santa’s chalet and all sorts of presents – all made of millions of flowers. It is really breathtaking.
  6. Go Ice Skating -The ice rink at The Cosmopolitan  is a perfect thing to do in between Christmas and New Years. Every year “The Cosmopolitan transforms into a winter wonderland high above The Las Vegas Strip.” It’s the only outdoor rink in the city and with s’mores, open fires, and even the occasional snowfall, a visit to The Cosmopolitan should not be missed during the holiday season. If you want to avoid the Strip – there is the Rock Rink in Downtown Summerlin.  After skating you can find lots of restaurants and retail stores to add another gift or two that Santa might have missed.

Day Tripping – Part Two

Last week I suggested some fun and interesting day trips to destinations around Las Vegas, and still in Nevada – well here are a few days trips that are across the California state line, and are certainly worth visiting (some you might even want to stay overnight in).

Pioneertown – It’s less than four hours from Las Vegas and has an interesting past. In 1946, Pioneertown was founded by a group of Hollywood investors, including actors Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. They dreamed of creating an Old West set 125 miles east of Los Angeles that was actually a town worth visiting.  The town has 1880s-style false-front facades as well as interiors with things for visitors to see and do.

From the outside there are frontier stables, saloons, and jails; inside, they house ice cream parlors, bowling alleys, and motels. It wasn’t a place just for tourists to enjoy though; more than 50 films and television shows were filmed here in the 1940s and ‘50s.  Recently the town has been experiencing something of a renaissance—artists, entrepreneurs, and just regular folks looking to escape city stress are finding their way here. Longtime standby the Pioneertown Motel, a rustic, single-story 20-room inn, has been updated with fire pits, an outdoor bar, and hammocks; it and La Copine, an upscale eatery in nearby Flamingo Heights are contributing to the area’s newfound reputation as a hip getaway.  https://www.visitcalifornia.com/attraction/pioneertown

Big Bear Lake– This is Southern California’s four-season mountain lake escape. Located in the heart of Southern California – and close to Las Vegas it around a 3 ½ hour drive  – Big Bear Lake is the jewel of the San Bernardino National Forest and known for excellent fishing, snowboarding & skiing, hiking, mountain biking and so much more!

During any season, a drive to Big Bear Lake through the San Bernardino National Forest is a wonderful experience. There are winding roads that cascade through hills that become mountains with amazing views of the California basin. You arrive in a destination that’s totally unique and different from the bustling cities below Big Bear Lake. Wood-carved sculptures line the streets, the smell of fresh pine and clean air permeates, and a town decorated in rustic cabins and lodges welcomes your arrival.  https://www.bigbear.com

Death Valley – It’s about a 2 ½ hour drive from Las Vegas to Death Valley and now is the time to go – not too hot (never go in the summer).  Death Valley is a national park located, east of the Sierra Mountains and bordering the state of Nevada. Death Valley has been the home for many Indigenous people dating back to even 10,000 years ago!  Many of these groups (like the Timbisha Shoshone group) were hunters and gatherers that would make winter camps on the valley floor and escape up to the nearby mountains when the weather started heating up.

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, Gold Rush hopefuls and miners came flocking to the area in hopes of gaining riches off of precious gems.  Now Death Valley has some very interesting spots for you to check out – Scotty’s Castle, The Oasis at Death Valley, Furnace Creek, with the park visitor center, as well as campgrounds, restaurants, a store, gas station, and the Furnace Creek Resort, Panamint Springs, and so many incredible sand dunes etc.  Check out the web site – https://www.nps.gov/deva/index.htm

Lake Arrowhead – Located a mile high in the heart of the San Bernardino National Forest, Lake Arrowhead Village is 3 ¾ hours Las Vegas.  With 4 distinct seasons, any time during the year is a great time to visit.  Love the snow? They have it for you from December through March. April and May brings daffodils and dogwoods to the village. From June thru August you’ll find perfect summer weather. Put on your favorite fall sweater and enjoy our fall foliage September thru November.  https://lakearrowhead.com

Joshua Tree – Joshua Tree National Park is a vast protected area in Southern California that is around a three hour drive from Las Vegas. It’s characterized by rugged rock formations and stark desert landscapes. Named for the region’s twisted, bristled Joshua trees, the park straddles the cactus-dotted Colorado Desert and the Mojave Desert, which is higher and cooler. Keys View looks out over the Coachella Valley. Hiking trails weave through the boulders of Hidden Valley. https://www.nps.gov/jotr/index.htm

Calico Ghost Town – Calico is an old West mining town that has been around since 1881 during the largest silver strike in California.  With its 500 mines, Calico produced over $20 million in silver ore over a 12-year span.  When silver lost its value in the mid-1890, Calico lost its population.  Walter Knott purchased Calico in the 1950’s architecturally restoring all but the five original buildings to look as they did in the 1880’s.  Calico received State Historical Landmark 782 and in 2005 was proclaimed by then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to be California’s Silver Rush Ghost Town. https://www.calicoattractions.com/

Fun and Interesting Day Trips from Las Vegas – Part One

Now that the summer heat has left us it’s time to wander around the area beyond the borders of Las Vegas and see some amazing places that are near enough for a day trip.

Oh dear – you have lived here for years and you haven’t driven through Red Rock Canyon?  Red Rock Canyon features a one-way 13-mile scenic drive, hiking and trailsplants and wildlifegeologycamping, cultural resources and much more. Our Visitor Center offers information and interpretation about recreation opportunities. The facility also features indoor and outdoor exhibits and a book and gift store.

The fee per day is $15 for one truck or car. (or buy a National Park Annual Pass for $80 and go as often as you like plus gain entry in such amazing places as Lake Mead, Cedar Breaks, Death Valley, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Grand Canyon, Joshua Tree, Yosemite & more!)

The Valley of Fire is incredible. It is a State Park for public recreation and nature preservation area covering nearly 46,000 acres located 16 miles south of Overton, Nevada. The state park derives its name from red sandstone formations, the Aztec Sandstone, which formed from shifting sand dunes 150 million years ago and contains ancient, petrified trees and petroglyphs dating back more than 2,000 years. A Visitor Center provides exhibits on the geology, ecology, prehistory and history of the park and nearby region

Valley of Fire 1

Entrance fee is $10

Mount Charleston is a great place to visit now with the trees turning colors, in the summer to get relief from the heat and in the winter to ski.  Named for nearby Mount Charleston, the highest point in Clark County, the town is in a valley of the Spring Mountains to the northwest of Las Vegas, noted for its hiking trails, and for the Mount Charleston Lodge, a rustic hotel. At an elevation of approximately 7,500 feet, temperatures are much lower than in Las Vegas, which has an elevation of about 2,000 feet, making it a popular place for Las Vegans to vacation. The mean high temperature is 20.4 degrees (Fahrenheit) cooler than in Las Vegas.

Goodsprings (Ghost Town) was a settlement in the hills seven miles west of Jean. It served as an important town for milling or from the surrounding mines. The town has named after a Mr. Joseph Good who headquartered his cattle raising operation there. At first the site was known as Good’s Springs but eventually was called Goodsprings. It was a mining camp with a hotel, a saloon that is still standing and in operation, and a general store.  Make sure you go to the Pioneer Saloon and the general store!

Pioneer Saloon exterior

Nelson (Ghost Town) was first called Eldorado by the Spaniards who made the original discoveries of gold in the area. A hundred years later prospectors and miners took over and established the notorious Techatticup Mine. Disagreements over ownership, management and labor disputes resulted in frequent killings. Today, you’ll find several old buildings, cars, trucks, buses and 2 crashed airplanes, making it a great spot to explore and take fun photos. I took my son’s HS graduation pics in a tired old pink Cadillac! Make sure you go to the general store!

Boulder City, Nevada is quite a great little town.  Very close to Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam.  The town is quaint with interesting shops of all kinds, and interesting restaurants and bars.  Here is a link that can tell you the 10 best things to do https://trip101.com/article/best-things-to-do-boulder-city-nevada

In the near future, I will be putting together other interesting spots to visit in part two – you won’t want to miss that.

Do you love the Vegas Golden Knights too? Wanna road trip to see them play in L.A.?

roadtrip1111

Are you up for an affordable adventure? If you didn’t know, I am a VGK fan and I have season tickets. Last year, the last regular season game they played was on the road against the Kings and it was the same day as my son’s senior prom. My son didn’t have a date for the prom and he was kind of bummed so I suggested we drive to L.A. for the game, which we did! We arrived, downtown, about 1/2 hour before they dropped the first puck. When the game was over, we drove home, trading drivers every 30 minutes, so we would stay awake. The whole experience was a ton of fun… and part of the adventure (in our opinion) was doing the whole thing in less than 24 hours… so this year I put together a bus trip for 56 VGK fans.

bus

The bus will leave from a parking lot just outside of Summerlin (Fort Apache & Sahara) at 10 AM on Saturday November 16th, and drive 56 fans to downtown L.A. – we should arrive around 3 PM, which will give everyone time to explore the area on your own and be in your seats for the puck drop at 7 PM.

road trip path

45 minutes after the game ends, the bus will drive us all back to where it picked us up from. Wanna go with us? For only $165 each, you can join us in section 206 for the game… we’ll be sitting in the lower bowl on the side where the Knights attack twice, and if you tried to buy similar seats online at T-Mobile arena here in Las Vegas for a game, they typically cost $200-$250.

view

 

What will you do between when the bus drops you off and when the game begins? There is plenty to explore… the Fashion District, the Jewelry District, great restaurants, & more (just Google “Top 10 things to do in downtown LA”).

So, are you up for it? To secure your seat on the bus call 702 SELL NOW (702-735-5669). Options for payment include, check, cash, Zelle or Venmo.

Friday Night Live – concert series in the Trails Park in Summerlin

The Summerlin Council presents the return of the fantastic “Friday Night Live” summer concert series.  You can bring your own food and drink and a blanket on Friday June 7, and head over to the Trails Park, 1910 Spring Gate Lane, Las Vegas Nevada 89134.  You will enjoy live musical experiences and performances that are guaranteed to get up on your feet and “Dance to the Music.”  And to top that off – – – it’s free!!!!!

The popular live show kicks off with ’80s revival band “Loveshack”, which has been voted Best of Las Vegas in the Las Vegas Review-Journal readers poll several times.  The show starts at 7 p.m. however I suggest you get there a little earlier that that to find a place on the lawn for your blanket.

Death Valley is expanding…….land bill added over 35,000 acres to the National Park

Did you know that Death Valley is only 100 miles west of Las Vegas?  I know you wouldn’t want to go there in the summer; however it is nice to go see at other times of the year and take in the beauty of the park.

A major lands bill was approved by Congress last week and part of this bill is to add over 35,000 acres to Death Valley National Park that presently is 3.4 million acres.  In 1849 a party of pioneers taking a shortcut to the goldfields of California stumbled into what is known now as Death Valley. The pioneers were desperate for water, and they too found salvation in the springs at Furnace Creek – one of the few areas in the park that has civilization.

Before the pioneers, the Timbisha Shoshone Indians lived in the valley for centuries. They hunted and followed seasonal migrations for harvesting of pinyon pine nuts and mesquite beans with their families. To them, the land provided everything they needed and many areas were, and are, considered to be sacred places.

Over the years from the mid to late 1800’s many distinct groups of miners and settlers came through Death Valley – for more information click on this link https://www.nps.gov/deva/index.htm

Presently you can explore this national park however it is advised to go on a guided tour.  There are also several hotels and other lodging in Death Valley. The Stovepipe Wells Village concession offers resort accommodations and limited recreational vehicle camping with full hookups in the Stovepipe Wells area. The Inn at Death Valley is a privately-owned historic inn that provides first class resort accommodations in the Furnace Creek area.  There is also the Ranch at Death Valley (formerly Furnace Creek Ranch) that currently is undergoing extensive remodeling. The private Panamint Springs Resort offers resort accommodations and camping.  There is also Scotty’s Castle that is closed until 2020 due to extensive flooding in the Grapevine Canyon from a severe thunderstorm that has destroyed the road to Scotty’s Castle and caused damage to buildings in this area.

There are many camp grounds available if you like to “rough it”.  There are also many places to eat from fine dining in the hotels to more casual eating spots and a few general stores where you can get a sandwich and supplies.

Super Summer Theater is NOT going away… despite what you may have heard

Many of us have heard the news that Bonnie Springs Ranch has been sold and will have new owners very shortly.  The intent is to develop a high-end housing community. However, a lot of people are confused and think that means the Outdoor Theater run by Super Summer Theatre is closing as well……Not true.  Super Summer Theater is at Spring Mountain Ranch, which is next door to Bonnie Springs. It is a different entity entirely and is alive and well and hopefully will continue to be around for long, long time.

Spring Mountain Ranch State Park with beautiful views of the Las Vegas Valley is between Bonnie Springs & the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation. In addition to the theatre, visitors can explore some of the oldest buildings in Nevada, a 1860s blacksmith shop, the Sandstone Cabin that was home to the founding family and the ranch house. Hiking trails throughout the park, in addition to tree-shaded picnic sites with tables and grills, make day trips to the park a family favorite.

For over 40 years, Super Summer Theatre at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park has offered a variety of outdoor shows to enjoy. The venue is exactly 10 miles west of the 215/West Charleston intersection.  June, July & August performances run Wednesday –Saturday and September’s production runs Thursday – Saturday).

A couple of interesting facts about Bonnie Springs- The “Bonnie” in Bonnie Springs Ranch comes from Bonnie McGaugh, the woman who purchased the ranch in 1952.  McGaugh, a one-time dancer and showgirl, passed away in 2016.

While she purchased the ranch in 1952, the ranch’s history dates back to 1840.  The zoo at Bonnie Springs Ranch started when the owner took in two pygmy goats from (wait for it) Wayne Newton.

We surely will miss Bonnie Springs Ranch with its “wild west” feel and are thrilled to say Spring Mountain Ranch will still be open for many different activities especially the Super Summer Theatre.

The Knights got Stoned

The Vegas Golden Knights have made another trade just before the deadline to take another run at the Stanley Cup in their second season. The Knights acquired high-scoring winger Mark Stone from the Ottawa Senators on Monday for defense prospect Erik Brannstrom, forward Oscar Lindberg and the Dallas Stars’ 2020 second-round pick. Vegas also received minor league forward Tobias Lindberg in the trade.

Stone is a top-line talent the Golden Knights hope can help them make another deep playoff run as they did last year in getting to the Cup Final. “He plays a complete game, plays every situation, and he’s going to really help our hockey club,” coach Gerard Gallant said. “He was the top guy on the board and we went out and got him, so it shows our players what we want to do and get things on track here and get going again.”

Losing 10 of their past 13 games has hurt the Golden Knights in a top-heavy Pacific Division, but Stone should provide an immediate boost. The 26-year-old has 28 goals and 34 assists for 62 points in 59 games this season; two points shy of his career high.

Stone is in the midst of his fifth consecutive 20-goal and 50-point season. And he said on Canadian television he agreed to but hadn’t yet signed a long-term contract extension, which makes the trade all the more valuable for the Golden Knights.

“He’s been great for a lot of years now, it feels like,” Vegas center William Karlsson said. “Huge addition for our roster. The guy can pass, the guy can score, so he’s kind of the full package.”

After trading a first-, a second- and a third-round pick at the 2018 deadline for winger Tomas Tatar, Golden Knights general manager George McPhee again anted up for a playoff push. Owner Bill Foley wanted his franchise to win a title within the first five years, and this is another move to help that effort in the short and long term.

All it cost Vegas off its NHL roster is Oscar Lindberg, a 27-year-old who has 12 points in 35 games this season. The team took him from the New York Rangers in the expansion draft, drafted Brannstrom in 2017 with the pick it received from the Islanders to take Mikhail Grabovski’s contract off their hands and got the second-rounder from Dallas for Marc Methot, whom they selected from the Senators in the expansion draft.

Go Knights Go!

Have you seen Seven Magic Mountains?

If you drive around 10 miles south of Las Vegas on Interstate 15 you will find Seven Magic Mountains.  They are located near Jean Dry Lake just off the highway.  I highly recommend you take a short drive to see this fun and inspirational art show of color in the desert.

These colorful boulders stand over 30 feet high and the brain child of Ugo Rondinone, an internationally celebrated Swiss artist.  Seven Mountains is a large-scale, site-specific public art installation and is adjacent to the Sheep Mountains and the McCullough, Bird Spring and Goodsprings ranges. A creative expression of human presence in the desert, The Seven Magic Mountains jolts the Mojave with a burst of form and color with dayglow totems comprised of painted, locally-sourced boulders. The cost of this project was $3.5 million, but not in tax dollars. The Nevada Commission on Tourism kicked in $100,000; however the big money came from private donors, with Aria resort being the largest.

The exhibition opened May 11, 2016, and was originally scheduled to be on view for two years – however due to the incredible success of Seven Magic Mountains since its opening,  the artist Ugo Rondinone has shown a strong desire to keep the artwork on view at its current site. The producers- Art Production Fund, New York and Nevada Museum of Art in Reno continue to work on an extension plan that would enable Seven Magic Mountains to remain on view for several years to come. At the end of 2018, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) issued a three-year permit extension for the artwork, allowing the installation to remain on view through the end of 2021.

Visible across the desert landscape along Interstate 15, Seven Magic Mountains offers a creative critique of the destinations like Las Vegas. According to Rondinone, the location is physically and symbolically mid-way between the natural and the artificial: the natural is expressed by the mountain ranges, desert, and Jean Dry Lake backdrop, and the artificial is expressed by the highway and the constant flow of traffic between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
