The Mirage Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas
Danny Gans has a popular impersonation show at the Mirage. I didn't get to see it, but heard good things about it. Its supposed to be very funny. But, like most Vegas shows, tickets usually sell out in advance,
There is no need for you to check in at the Mirage Hotel and Casino to be attracted and entertained.
Enjoy the tropical atmosphere at the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat that is surrounded by palm trees and lush foliages. You will be mesmerized by the coral reef life at the front desk. You will see more inside the front entrance, an experience which is extraordinary as they say. A lush and verdant indoor rainforest is waiting for you under the 100-foot-high dome.
The most exciting is the volcanic eruption which you do not want to experience in real life. As the eruption ignites the surrounding lagoon, the FireShooter bring Las Vegas' signature blast within feet of spectators.
Another night picture of a casino---the Mirage. Inside the Mirage is where the white tigers are kept behind a glass wall so visitors can look at them---or so they can look at the visitors. There's also a place inside where several dolphins are housed in a huge pool and perform for the public. We've not seen it in person, but I have seen it on the Travel Channel. I think there's a charge to get into it, but I'm not sure. This is also where Sigfried and Roy put on there magic shows. I hear they're really neat, too, but expensive.
Has a volcano that erupts in the evenings---I think every 15 minutes.
I noted The Mirage as my destination but, it could be in any of the Hotels. One of my wife's and I favorite thing to do while in Vegas is to cruise the Hotel lounges and look for entertainment. Their our some bad lounge acts with the typical boring piano player, but we have always found great entertainment somewhere. You may be required to purchase 1 drink each to sit in the lounge area but, they will let you check out the band/entertainment first. We have found some really good entertainers/singers along the way. The bigger hotels seem to have better acts but, not always. So if you are looking for a more intimate setting, try out the lounges. We have had entertainers come over and talk with us during their breaks and they often perform right next to your table. Start a tab and give them a tip! Great Fun!............
I probably have given this tip already but the more I go to Las Vegas, the more I found out little details of how to maximize your visit on the Strip. First of all, when you book your hotel at Mandalay, Four Seasons, Luxor, MGM, Bellagio, Caesar's Palace, Excalibur, Polo Towers, Monte Carlo, New York, New York, or any other hotel close to these hotels, it is best to take the train up to Harrah's and start at that end and visit the farther hotels first.
Three days in Las Vegas is just about right - that is if you don't spend much time gambling at day time (choose gambling at night). And, by the time that you are done scouting and visiting all the hotels close to Harrah like the rest of the hotels in that area, then it is just about time to watch the free shows at the strip at night and head back towards your hotel after the Pirates fight, Bellagio fountain show, the volcanic eruption at Mirage, etc.
Dress Code: It depends what month. During the summer season, it still gets chilly a little bit. It is better to bring a light jacket just in case...It is better to be prepared!
The Mirage casino and making new friends!
It was his 21st birthday, what a way to spend it but in Vegas?
There are probably lots of good places for a nightlife, but just wandering around on the streets is entertaining enough! This is the vulcano show from the Mirage.
