Las Vegas mountain selfies

Take Mountain Selfies

Just a 15-minute drive from Silverton Casino-Lodge is Red Rock Canyon, seemingly a world away from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas.  Here, you will find plenty of “selfie” opportunities.  Our favorite is the Calico stop on the 13-mile scenic drive.

Las Vegas zip lines

Ride the Ziplines

You’ve got a few choices when it comes to Las Vegas ziplines.  On the Strip, the FLYLINQ zipline towers above the Linq promenade (above).  Located downtown, the SlotZilla ziplines take you on a thrilling trip under the LED-lighted canopy of the Fremont Street Experience.  If you are looking for a taste of the desert, check out the Bootleg Canyon zipline in nearby Boulder City.

seven magic mountains las vegas

Explore Seven Magic Mountains

Internationally renowned Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains is a large-scale site-specific public art installation located near Interstate 15, approximately ten miles south of Las Vegas. Comprised of seven towers of colorful, stacked boulders standing more than thirty feet high, Seven Magic Mountains is situated within the Ivanpah Valley adjacent to Sheep Mountain and the McCullough, Bird Spring, and Goodsprings ranges of mountains. A creative expression of human presence in the desert, Seven Magic Mountains punctuates the Mojave with a poetic burst of form and color.   During summer months, be sure to go early to avoid mid-day heat.

Best Las Vegas Casino Dining Experiences

Mi Casa and WuHu Noodle were named in an article about the magazine’s top ten Las Vegas dining experiences this year.

8. Mi Casa at Silverton
Savor Las Vegas, Nevada’s best Mexican food at Mi Casa Grill Cantina at
Silverton Casino Hotel. Mi Casa serves up delicious Mexican border classics
and signature favorites — everything from spicy fajitas to tamales to ceviche.
Home to one of Vegas’ most extraordinary tequila menus; enjoy it all with
any one of the 65 tequilas served at Mi Casa.

I was very impressed with the authenticity of the interior of the restaurant.
I was more impressed by the food. At the time of our visit and due to other
restaurants being closed, the menu was very diversified.

Our server, Deontae, was very personable and provided us with attentive
service. The food was delicious. I loved Mi Casa’s version of chicken tortilla
soup. I ordered filet mignon and it was cooked to perfection. Dorene chose
Rancho del Sur as her entree. (NY steak, four jumbo grilled peppers,
onions, tabasco onions.) Mi Casa is truly a hidden gem and the prices are
very reasonable. I highly recommend making a visit.



WuHu Noodle at Silverton
WuHu’s menu features authentic Chinese, Japanese,
Vietnamese and Thai cuisine. Signature dishes in-
clude Singapore Style Noodles, Green Bean Beef,
Braised Beef Brisket on Rice and Asparagus Shrimp.
Customers may watch chefs prepare dishes
through an interactive kitchen viewing area.
I thought their Asian Chicken Wings were among
the best I have ever had. Prices are reasonable.
