Experiencing Mad Apple

The latest Cirque du Soleil show to appear on the Las Vegas strip is none other than a tribute to New York. Mad Apple is like a luxurious mix of Zumanity meets Criss Angel, with some sick beats mixed in. This show does wonders for all the senses, and let me tell you, even while pushing through a mad bout of food poisoning, I genuinely enjoyed the experience and will happily return for another helping.

There isn’t a bad seat in the showroom, but you can get up and personal with the actors if you pay a few bucks extra. If you are more of the sit and observe, and don’t touch me type, then I recommend you sit in the fourth row or further back. My group was in the front section toward the back and I felt great about my seat.

The show is a bit risqué, so I don’t recommend bringing children, but grab your significant other or your pals, and it makes for a fun evening activity. You’ll view everything from magic to acrobatics. The singers and the band are amazing and I wish I had the music to take home with me.

The price for tickets can range. At this time there is a Groupon available, though I don’t know how much the extra fees stack up to be. We paid around $130 per ticket without the Groupon.

If you’re visiting Las Vegas soon, check out Mad Apple. You won’t be sorry. I give this show five stars and two thumbs up.

The Neon Museum in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a city meant for fun and exploration. Most often, when we think of Vegas, we think of drunken debauchery and hiding the evidence of what we did while there. Clearly, with the development of Facebook, there is no longer any true way to hide your crazy escapades, so why not opt for something a little less sinful? What, you ask, would I recommend? How about the Neon Museum?

To visit the Neon Museum, you must book your time-slot in advance. They run on a tight schedule and you will get the best bang for your buck if you plan to go at night and you also plan to watch the, Brilliant, light show. You absolutely have to add Brilliant to your ticket. It is worth the viewing.

You will see many different signs from throughout Las Vegas history. Several of which have been restored. The guide will humorously tell stories about where the signs are from and other stories regarding the owners of the casinos. You will be allowed to take photographs of everything, and of course, that was one of my favorite parts.

The museum is located in downtown Las Vegas and can be walked to from many locations. You can buy a single visit pass, or an annual. We opted for the annual, since it came with other perks as well. It allows you to visit other museums throughout the country, which sounds great to me.
