Vegas Family Vacation

For those that aren’t privy to the many different options the Las Vegas valley has to offer, putting the words “Vegas” and “Family” together can sound like a complete oxymoron. Forget what you’ve heard about Vegas and take back your family vacation. Enjoy a little something for everyone, yes including you, on your next family vacation to Las Vegas.

There’s no denying both children and children at heart can enjoy spending time with the Silverton Mermaids. Whether you’re capturing a show as they perform tricks and interact with the crowd, or opt for a personal encounter and enjoy Meals with a Mermaid, where you can help them look for treasure, enjoy a delicious meal, and make unforgettable memories. It may even inspire the children to sign up for Mermaid School. Talk about a dream job!

There’s no excuse not to carve out a date night just for the two of you during your trip. Make your reservations now for Twin Creeks Steakhouse and thank us later. Enjoy unrivaled happy hour specials, steak, and seafood prepared to perfection, as well as a plant-based menu. Be sure not to skip out on dessert.

Head to the great outdoors, without ever stepping outside. Get lost inside Bass Pro Shops, complete with a waterfall and tanks bubbling with fish, and even a few ducks, shoot your shot at the archery range or shooting gallery, or simply take in everything they have to offer for your next adventure.

Pack a water bottle and your comfiest shoes and head just a few miles west to enjoy the beauty that is Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Enjoy hikes for all levels or simply pack a picnic, take in the breathtaking desert scenery, and maybe catch sight of a burro or two. You’d never believe this wonder is hidden just beyond the flashy lights of the Las Vegas Strip.

There’s just so much that the valley has to offer for the entire family, all while being exclusively “Vegas”. What are you most excited to do on your next Vegas vacation?

Get Charged-Up About Going Green

When you hear the term “green” in Las Vegas, it would come as no surprise to learn that someone’s first thoughts would be of the felt of their favorite table game or more obviously the dollar bills they left with after their big win. While we’re big fans of both of those types of “green”, there are other ways Silverton Casino and everyone at Silverton Village is getting a little more “green”.

Did you know that there are over 20 charging stations throughout Silverton Village and growing? Whether you’re grabbing a quick charge while getting your own quick charge in the form of something caffeinated and delicious while stopping into Starbucks Coffee or getting charged up for a road trip during your stay at Hyatt Place Las Vegas at Silverton Village, we have you covered. Charging stations can also be found on nearly every level of the Silverton Casino parking garage for your convenience, and yes parking is always free.

But what if you don’t have an electric car? We have just the answer, try your luck at our Charged-Up Electric Car Drawing this November! Silverton Rewards Club members may earn 100 points per drawing entry for the chance to win a Tesla Model 3 on Saturday, November 30th! Be sure to earn entries for the drawing November 1st through the 30th. What an awesome way to go green and drive away in style!

Looking for a delicious way to go green while also getting in your greens for the day? Award-winning Twin Creeks Steakhouse offers a delectable plant-based menu with a little something for everyone including favorites like the grilled artichoke, watermelon salad and pasta primavera.

We believe going green starts with small changes that can lead to big differences over time – and don’t’ worry, we’ll ask first before giving you a straw.

Making a Splash in the Business of Back to School

It’s wild to think that in just a short few weeks the children of the Las Vegas valley will be heading back to school. Whether you’re sad to see another summer come to a close, or ready to get back into the routine of a school day schedule, we have a few ways you can make the most of those remaining summer days leading up to that first day back to school.

Send the kids back to a school that they’re guaranteed to love. Saturdays and Sundays 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM children 7-12 years old can enroll in Mermaid School for the opportunity to learn just what it takes to become a Silverton Mermaid!

Your child can learn to swim like a professional mermaid while immersing themselves in our aquarium full of exotic fish during a class taught by one of our very own Silverton Mermaid professionals. They will also be able to enjoy a behind the scenes tour of our award-winning aquarium to complete the full mermaid experience!

Another great way to get into the Back to School, and giving, spirit is by donating to our School Supply Drive that will be running August 1st-10th. Bring any new items including backpacks, pencils, pens, paper, folders, highlighters, glue, crayons, markers, tissues, wipes, or dry erase pens to the Player’s Club and receive $5 off any regular buffet at Seasons Buffet. These donations will be collected to benefit the local Clark County School District students of Dr. Beverly S. Mathis Elementary School.

Another way Silverton Casino loves to help our local students is by volunteering our time with the Goodie Two Shoes Foundation, a local charity that provides simple necessities in a fun and exciting atmosphere to disadvantaged children.

How are you getting ready to head into another school year?

The NFR Dress Code

Calling all cowgirls and cowboys—the “Super Bowl of Rodeo” is just around the corner! We’ve got plenty of fun planned this December at our free NFR viewing parties featuring live entertainment, giveaways, food and drink specials, and more. We’re already planning what we’ll be wearing to this Western soirée. Expect lots of denim, faux suede, mineral necklaces, and of course, the essential cowboy boots and hats!

Let’s discuss the dress code for men which follows an elevated cowboy look that allows you to show off your best digs. Wrangler jeans are a must! Pair the jeans with a crisp plaid or paisley double-pocket shirt like the one pictured below which combines utility and style. A durable leather belt with a steel buckle adds flair to the denim. Whether you prefer black or brown leather, the belt absolutely needs an eye-catching buckle. Accessories are key! Fresh cowboy boots and a classic wide-brimmed cowboy hat should complete your Western look. Take the classic route with brown leather embroidered square-toe boots unless you prefer to sacrifice functionality for style with trendy pointed-toe boots.

NFR Dress Code

Western-wear for women encompasses a whole genre of style. There are so many options. You can go modern with the Western Revival trend which involves flowy bohemian dresses and sleeker pieces or go for the classic cowgirl look involving denim, suede, turquoise accessories, and leather. Or you can combine both styles as shown below. Having a hard time finding a good selection of Western dresses? Check out the Dillard’s online Western Revival Boutique—it’s a one-stop shop with a selection of almost 100 dresses to choose from! Whether you choose to rock the denim look or the trendy flowy dresses, staple pieces like wide-brimmed hats and cowgirl boots are essential to complete this NFR-ready look.

Accessories make the outfit. Boot Barn has an incredible selection of cowgirl hats offered at decent prices. But if you’re looking for a trendier look, check out Lack of Color for sleek and modern wool cowgirl hats. Choose from a large variety of stylish cowgirl boots from Boot Barn. You can go for an understated stacked-heel leather boot to complement your look, or an intricate embroidered snip-toe boot to accent your outfit. The possibilities are endless! Finish the look with turquoise and silver jewelry and you’re ready to party!

Silverton Casino is throwing a huge NFR party from December 6 through December 15. Join us at Veil Pavilion to watch the 60th annual Wrangler NFR from 6:30pm to midnight. Our viewing parties include prizes, giveaways, food and drink specials, 360° viewing, and more. Live entertainment is available nightly. Performing artists include Ned LeDoux, Chris Heers, Easy 8’s, Gregor Ross, Kevin Fowler, and Randy Brown. Join us for this exciting week as the fashion plate in Western-wear.

Meals with a Mermaid at Silverton Casino’s Aquarium

“Who says that my dreams have to stay just my dreams?” – Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

You no longer have to dream big, little mermaid. Long gone are the days when you would wonder how it would be to have brunch with a mermaid. One of the best free attractions in Las Vegas is now offering Meals with a Mermaid, a unique dining experience available only at Silverton Casino. It’s the perfect activity for families or for those who just want to fulfill their childhood fairytale wishes.

Our Aquarium is a very special Las Vegas fixture. This 117,000-gallon tank is home to thousands of tropical fish including stingrays, smaller sharks, and the occasional Dory and Nemo. Tourists and locals flock to our Aquarium for free mermaid shows, the daily interactive stingray feedings, or to simply breathe in the view and relax. But our guests aren’t the only ones having fun. Our mermaids have fun on the job every day. Former mermaid (now Aquarist) Ariana Liuzzi says, “The best thing about my job is that there [are] no bad days here… The water has always made me feel the most at peace and [happiest].”


The mermaids interact with children and guests, pose for photos, put on a fun and engaging 15-minute show, all while swimming in a weighted tail. Most of our mermaids come from synchronized swimming backgrounds so it’s not hard for them to swim gracefully while only having a five oxygen hoses hidden in the coral as their air supply. Some of their signature moves are bubble kisses, flips, and twirls. Each mermaid tail is custom-fitted and we have several pretty patterns and colors. It’s always such a pleasure to see the look on children’s faces when they see the tip of the mermaid tail pop up in the water—that’s the cue that the show is about to begin.

What sets our new Meals with a Mermaid apart from our usual free mermaid show is that it’s a unique experience catered just for you. You dine on breakfast or brunch while having a mermaid dedicated to entertaining and interacting with you and your party. During the meal, you’re welcome to go up to one of the Aquarium glass panels left open so you can take photos and videos with the mermaids. There are usually two mermaids in the tank during the meal, which is a different experience from the usual free mermaid show. The menu is currently comprised of classic breakfast foods like pancakes, turkey club, and country fried steak. In October, the menu will be shifting to a breakfast buffet offering more choices.
