Las Vegas never sleeps, and one could argue that its convention centers are never closed, either. Sitting at the top of the heap in terms of available hotel rooms for conference goers, Sin City remains a top destination for business (and leisure, for that matter) travel. You already knew that the city offered plenty beyond meeting rooms, but I’m here to give you a few options that the folks around the water cooler may be unaware of. In an effort to get you outside of the boardroom and into the wilds of southern Nevada, we’re offering up two restaurants, two attractions, and one bar that you can hit with just a few extra hours between meetings.

Las Vegas isn’t exactly known for its museums, but one open-air offering that may just change that is the über-awesome Neon Museum, which is set to open to the public this weekend with a new visitors center and an expanded tour schedule.
The museum, which is the result of the hardworking efforts of a local nonprofit that rescues and restores old signs, will soon offer 12 daily guided tours of the neon relics that represent Sin City’s bygone eras. The collection is full of colorful marquees and characters that once adorned casinos, hotels, and nightclubs but were eventually removed for renovations and upgrades.
Dozens of these iconic signs, including one from the Stardust Lounge, now reside in the museum’s outdoor Neon Boneyard, helping keep the rich history of this iconic city alive. Previously, tickets to this offbeat attraction were quite tricky to come by, and the new tour itinerary is a welcome way to open this treasure trove of neon delights to a bigger audience. Read more

While flights to most popular destinations are more expensive over Memorial Day weekend this year than last year, there are two hotspots that have seen a big drop in prices: Las Vegas and Chicago. According to online travel agency CheapOair, the average airfare cost to Sin City fell 12 percent to $365 round-trip, while flights to the Windy City are down 14 percent to $296.
And those are just average prices; our Travel Search price comparison tool turned up round-trip flights starting from $68 in May. Unfortunately, weekends are one of the worst times to find hotel deals in Vegas, particularly during a holiday period. However, with a little careful planning and some flexibility – avoid a Saturday night stay if at all possible – you can still find rates that aren’t through the roof.
