For the Big Night Out You’ve Been Waiting For, Head to Park MGM

Las Vegas is the entertainment epicenter of the world. From huge-name headliners to intimate DJ sets at speakeasy bars, you’ll find it all amid the neon glow and frenetic energy of The Strip. But if you want an experience and an atmosphere that will make your night  – and possibly your entire vacation – head straight to the Park MGM, where you can craft your perfect night out from dinner to late night dancing.

To kick your evening off right, grab a meal at one of Park MGM’s reservation-worthy restaurants. At Best Friend you’ll enter a Korean bodega before being whisked back to an intimate dining room to feast on dishes by chef Roy Choi while a DJ plays live. Craving a big plate of pasta? You haven’t lived until you’ve been to Eataly – an open-market Italian dining concept with table service and artisanal shopping.

If you’re looking for a quintessential Vegas show with plenty of glamor, look no further than Dolby Live. With its high-tech capabilities (HD projectors and 200+ feet of projection surfaces, so you get an intimate musical experience in this 5,200-seat venue) and high-glamor ambiance (think twinkling chandeliers and seven bars with views of The Strip), Dolby Live has been attracting the world’s top performers since its opening in 2016. For unbeatable, up-close views of your favorite stars, book the VIP experience, which includes a VIP Banquette, cocktail service and seats just 90 feet away from the stage.

No night would be complete without a post-show debrief over a drink or two. Park MGM has you covered there as well. Stop by the NoMad Bar for classic cocktails mixed by an award-winning team, served amid a sumptuous setting of red velvet booths and table lamps. After more of a party vibe? Visit Mama Rabbit, a mezcal and tequila bar with colorful Oaxaca-inspired decor and flashing slot machines in the shape of giant animals.

Finally, round out the night at On the Record, a record-store-meets-speakeasy hidden just off the main casino floor. Find a cozy corner for gossip and cocktails with friends, or dance until your feet ache on the outdoor patio, next to a double-decker London bus. What happens after that is up to you. The night is young and you’re in Las Vegas…

"This sculpture is called "Transmission" by artist Daniel Popper. Its a reminder that we are all rooted in love, unity and the divine. She stands a towering 28 feet tall and is located on Mojave Moon Ranch in Joshua Tree. The land is private property, so you can see it from the viewing platform off of Sunfair Road. And take it from me, it's best viewed at sunset."

Swim or kayak through the limestone cliffs of the Twin Lagoon, a must-visit destination for those traveling to Coron, Palawan, Philippines. It is called "twin" lagoon because it consists of two lagoons separated by a limestone cliff, with one lagoon on top of the other. The water in the inner lagoon is warm and clear, with a stunning turquoise color that makes it popular for swimming and snorkeling.

Watching the sun rise above the clouds at Haleakalā National Park is one of the most memorable experiences you could have. Haleakalā is a Hawaiian name that means “House of the Sun” and is an awesome place to watch the clear night sky and stars fade away as the sun lights up the sky and the earth.

Just 1 hour from Shanghai by train, Cherry Blossom Valley is a popular tourist destination, particularly in the spring when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. The valley is named after the thousands of cherry blossom trees that cover the area and create a stunning display of pink and white flowers. The trees were originally planted in the 1980s by a group of Japanese experts who were invited to China to help with reforestation efforts. The best time to visit is typically in late March or early April. Get there early to beat the crowds!

For a magical moment and bucket list travel experience, visit the end point of the annual monarch butterfly migration. Starting in August, the monarchs travel 2,800 miles south from Canada, making a temporary home amid the towering trees of the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve in Mexico, where the two most popular sanctuaries to view them are el Rosario in the state of Michoacan and Piedra Herrada in Estado de México. Standing in silence while thousands of delicate wings beat in unison is something you'll never forget.
