Choice Vegas Guidebooks

Amazon has well over 2,000 guidebooks about Las Vegas. We haven’t read them all. But we’ve read portions of many. And of those the one we’d suggest to you would depend on how well you already know Vegas, whether you have a Kindle ebook reading device, and whether or not you are heading to Sin City with a group of your male friends hoping that whatever you do in Vegas does, in fact, stay there.

Zagats Restaurants & Nightlife

vegas zagat Choice Vegas Guidebooks follow me on pinterest button Choice Vegas Guidebooks You already know where you’ll be staying in Vegas. You know mostly what you’ll be doing in Vegas: lounging by the pool probably, gambling certainly, shopping depending on how the gambling goes. But you aren’t exactly sure about which of the newly opened restaurants are good or what the hottest bar is these days. For you, there’s the Zagat guide.

Zagat has the best, most reliable, restaurant & nightlife information because their books are updated yearly, and because their reviews are culled from the first-hand reports of thousands of Zagat’s readers.

Even better than buying one of Zagat’s guides, though, is subscribing to their online site. With a subscription to Zagat you’ll get access to continuously updated reviews (especially important for a destination like Las Vegas where the revolving door of bars and restaurants spins notoriously fast). You’ll also get their review for every other city Zagat covers!

The Little Black Book of Las Vegas

vegas black Choice Vegas Guidebooks follow me on pinterest button Choice Vegas Guidebooks For a little bit more around-the-town info than restaurant and nightlife reviews, we love The Little Black Book. This guide has a heavy editorial slat, making bold statements on what’s “best.” Spot Cool Stuff is a fan of that, trusting the excellent judgment of this guide’s author, Lark Ellen Gould. (We love saying the name “Lark Ellen Gould”). Even if you are one of the Vegas travelers who would rather have a more objective take on things you’ll love this book’s clear colorful maps, as well as its durable, spiral binding.

Time Out: Las Vegas

vegas timeout Choice Vegas Guidebooks follow me on pinterest button Choice Vegas Guidebooks What if you already have your resort picked out but you want more to your guidebook than nightlife and restaurant reviews (see Zagat, above) and also more than Vegas shopping and attractions advice (Little Black Book)? Then Time Out: Las Vegas is your choice. Time Out covers many of the hot bars and restaurants, but also reviews shows, casinos and various Vegas attractions. The information is all provided by local Las Vegas writers.

And if you are feeling like you need to escape the neon lights and casino mayhem, this Time Out book will guide you to the sites of the Hover Dam, Death Valley, the Grand Canyon and Los Angels. All that in one compact, easy-to-carry-around package.
