W ith the excitement for the launch of her Las Vegas residency show reaching a fever pitch, coupled with the release of her highly anticipated eighth studio album “Britney Jean,” ticket demand for “Britney: Piece of Me” has been overwhelming. Given record-setting sales, the next set of show dates for “Britney: Piece of Me” have gone on sale earlier than expected. Guests are encouraged to purchase their tickets as soon as possible, as some performances are sold out and a very limited number of tickets are available for the previously announced show dates. The day after celebrating her 32nd birthday and on the same day as her new album release, the superstar literally stopped traffic along the famed Las Vegas Strip as an elaborate event was thrown in her honor to officially welcome her to her new home at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. “I already feel like home here at Planet Hollywood. It was so nice to celebrate my birthday and album launch with this incredible welcome event,” said Britney. “I am so excited for everyone to hear my new album today, and to experience “Britney: Piece of Me” in just a few weeks!” 2 WHERE Planet Hollywood WHEN Showtime: Jan. 29, 31; Feb. 1, 4, 7-8, 12, 14-15, 18-19, 22, 25-26, 30; Apr. 25-26, 30; May 2-3, 7, 9-10, 14, 16-17; Aug. 16, 19, 23, 27, 30-31; Sept. 3, 5-6 at 9 p.m. TICKETS planethollywood.com, 866-919-7472 Starting at $59 WORTH A CLICK britneyspears.com N E VA D A M AG A Z I N E .

ERIN O’BOYLE PHOTOGRAPHICS Construction has begun on the 220,000-square-foot Sahara Center, located at the northeast corner of Sahara and Hualapai, with a scheduled opening of early Fall 2014. Sahara Center will be anchored by T.J. Maxx, Stein Mart, Sprouts Farmers Market, HomeGoods, and Petco in addition to other national and regional brands. The center will also offer a number of tenants that will provide neighborhood conveniences, including food and beverage offerings. Currently, the center is 60 percent leased and expected to open near or at full capacity. Robust leasing activity is a testament to the optimal location, the surrounding neighborhoods with high average household income, quality of the development, freeway proximity, and a large population of Las Vegans and visitors to the area with spending power. Both Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman and the Ward 2 City Councilman Bob Beers have expressed excitement about the significant job creation to be experienced during the construction phase and the permanent employment opportunities that will result once the center opens to the public. Ted Baker, Sahara Center’s retail leasing consultant with New Market Advisors expressed, “The many residential neighborhoods and master planned communities on this side of town, such as Summerlin, Queensridge, and Peccole Ranch, have been underserved in terms of national and regional retail options. Despite the cloud of economic uncertainty over the past five years, the demand for mid-box retail in this area has never waned. Sahara Center brings a new and exciting shopping experience from nationally recognized PLAN YOUR TRIP brands to this major Sahara Center Summerlin-area 10000 W. Sahara Ave. intersection.” Las Vegas, NV 89117 JA N UA RY / F E B RUA RY 2 014 JF14_p020-021_E&S_GeorgeT.indd 21 21 12/10/13 3:46 PM <las vegas> HIGH ROLLER OBSERVATION WHEEL SCRAPES THE SKY. DENISE TRUSCELLO The Las Vegas High Roller has reached new heights as the observation wheel’s first passenger cabin was rotated to the highest point on the wheel’s rim. At 550 feet, the rotation of the cabin to the mid-center point of the rim officially makes the High Roller the world’s tallest observation wheel. As the focal point of The LINQ, Caesars Entertainment’s $550 million outdoor retail, dining, and entertainment district, today’s feat marks a major milestone for the Las Vegas Strip attraction. “This was a significant step for us. The level of technical precision and detailed planning to attach a 22-ton passenger cabin to the rim is tremendous,” said David Codiga, executive project director for The LINQ. “Seeing the cabin rotate to the top of wheel is not only very satisfying for our team, who has spent years working very hard to get to this point, but it also signifies we’re just that much closer to becoming operational. We’re all very eager to welcome passengers to the tallest and most advanced wheel in the world and this gets us one step closer.” Ahead of the first center-point rotation, the 44,000-pound, spherical, glassenclosed cabin had to travel to the wheel site from its assembly warehouse. Transferred via police escort provided by the Nevada Highway Patrol, it took approximately three hours to travel the cabin 10 miles. In total, the High Roller will feature 28 cabins that will each hold 40 passengers. 22 RE ND ER IN G PLAN YOUR TRIP The LINQ caesars.com/thelinq 702-785-6492 N E VA D A M AG A Z I N E .

L ocated roughly 90 miles south of Las Vegas lies an underrated Nevada treasure. Touting a scenic riverwalk, crystal-clear waters, and nearby petroglyphs strewn across the red rock countryside, Laughlin truly stands out as a Nevada town worth visiting. A popular destination for snowbirds hoping to escape frigid temperatures during the winter season, Laughlin provides a sunny escape year-round. The town’s origin dates to 1964 when founder Don Laughlin flew over the site and saw tourism potential. At the time, the region—a stretch of the Colorado River referred to as Tri State—consisted of not much more than an abandoned eight-room motel. Within two years, Don purchased the motel and six acres of riverfront property. Construction of Laughlin began shortly thereafter, and the town began to take shape. After the addition of various hotels and casinos, Don funded his namesake Laughlin Bridge, which provided easy access to Arizona and established the location as a prosperous Nevada settlement. 2014 marks a special occasion for Laughlin as the town observes the 50-year mark since its inception. 1. CRYSTAL COLORADO RIVER: This impressive water source flows alongside the Laughlin “strip,” as locals refer to its casino district. The activities available on the river include watercraft rentals, riverboat tours, and the annual River Regatta—an event in which thousands of participants take to the river on inner tubes and float an eight-mile stretch. 2. THE FOODIE’S PARADISE: From fine dining in one of the area’s elegant steakhouses such as the Range Steakhouse inside of Harrah’s Laughlin to an all-you-can-eat buffet in the Aquarius Casino Resort, the dining options in Laughlin are numerous. If beer and a burger better suit your appetite, Pints Brewery & Sports Bar inside The Colorado Belle Hotel & Casino dishes up a more relaxed dining experience. 3. CANYON CANVASES AND A CHRISTMAS TREE: Less than 30 minutes from Laughlin lies Grapevine Canyon, one of Nevada’s most interesting and accessible (via easily traversable dirt roads) archeological sites, giving visitors a chance to view hundreds of petroglyphs carved into the canyon walls. A short distance from Grapevine Canyon lies Christmas Tree 26 Pass, which gives visitors astounding views of the area’s geology and vegetation; and, yes, there is a small decorated Christmas tree on top of the pass. 4. CLASSIC AUTOS: You don’t have to be a motor head to enjoy the Riverside Classic Auto Exhibition Hall at Don Laughlin’s Riverside Resort. With more than 80 rare, antique, and historic automobiles, trucks, and motorcycles, the free exhibit is open daily. 5. LAUGHLIN RIVERWALK: The waterfront path is chock full of various restaurants, casinos, and river activities and provides a scenic view of the Colorado River. Guests who don’t feel like walking can even traverse the riverwalk by taking a ride on a water taxi. 6. NIGHT LIFE: The entertainment in Laughlin is dynamic. Live music and several nightclubs line the strip, including Gold Diggers—a vivacious venue that offers plenty of dancing and drink specials. Tower of Power, Smokey Robinson, the Charlie Daniels Band, and Montgomery Gentry are just a few of the big acts that have N E VA D A M AG A Z I N E .

IT’S A CELEBRATION: Visitors can sail aboard the Celebration—a simulated paddlewheel boat that provides a different perspective of the crystalclear waters. The vessel offers 90-minute cruises along casino row to Davis Dam as well as dinner cruises, riverboat weddings, and group charters. 10. DESERT OASIS: A soft, sandy beach isn’t easy to come by in the Silver State. However, at Harrah’s Laughlin, guests can enjoy access to a riverfront beach, complete with cabana rentals and access to two outdoor swimming pools. 8. A SOUTHERN (NEVADA) TRADITION: The Colorado Belle Hotel & Casino. A replica paddlewheel boat includes not only a hotel and casino, but also retail stores and entertainment and dining options, all enclosed under the impressively decorated exterior. Lined with Koi ponds on one side and the Colorado River on the other, this resort is truly a sight to see. 9. RICK ROLLIN’ ON THE RIVER: An iconic symbol of Nevada, River Rick (aka Laughlin Lou) greets visitors to the Laughlin Riverwalk. Displaying the same familiar appearance as his Nevada counterparts, Vegas Vic and Wendover Will, River Rick has been standing proudly at the Pioneer Hotel & Gambling Hall since 1981.

It’s eternal—love that is—and even more so when it’s locked at Lovers Lock Plaza in Lovelock, home to the nation’s only “eternal” chain. This Valentine’s Day, February 14, lovers are invited to travel to Lovelock for a wedding and vow renewal ceremony followed by love-locking to commemorate their love and the sixth anniversary of Lovers Lock Plaza. Since its inception in 2006, people from around the globe have traveled to Lovelock to symbolically bind their love as part of an age-old Chinese custom revised into Nevada tradition. In China, for decades lovers have placed a lock on an “endless chain” along the Great Wall in the Yellow Mountains and elsewhere. The love-locking tradition is also alive in Italy, with lovers affixing locks to the Ponte Vecchio and Ponte Milvio and throwing the keys into the Arno and Tiber Rivers. Couples looking to legally marry at the ceremony will need to secure a State of Nevada marriage license prior to the ceremony. Participation in the ceremony is free. Lovelock hosts a variety of activities in conjunction with the Valentine’s Day festivities at Lovers Lock Plaza. Events include the annual Lovers Aloft Balloon Races, wine tastings, art exhibits, an ice-cream social, poker walk, and more. The balloon races, an annual Lovelock tradition, bring together more than 20 hot air balloons for a variety of competitions each morning. PLAN YOUR TRIP Lovers Lock Plaza P.O.

One of the most illustrious and cryptic focuses of conspiracy theorists, UFO enthusiasts, and curiosity seekers for decades, Area 51 continues to be shrouded in mystery. Located adjacent to the Nevada Test Site, this secluded section of desert has become synonymous with alien spacecraft, beings from other planets, and impenetrable security. However, visitors to the National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas can now explore the highly classified world via the award-winning exhibit “Area 51: Myth or Reality.” Organized in coordination with former CIA officers, military aviators, Area 51 workers, and respected members of the UFO community, the interactive exhibit gives an inside look at the mysterious base. Visitors receive an authorization badge and secret instructions before passing through a “Q clearance” security checkpoint. They are then greeted by a “man in black” before learning about the Roswell crash, viewing UFO crash site debris, witnessing an alien autopsy, and exploring the science behind space travel. Guests also have a chance to discover the origins of the nation’s MiG reverse engineering program, learn about the trials and tribulations of getting the U-2 spy plane program off the ground, view authentic artifacts from the different spy-plane programs developed in the Nevada desert, and find out about other formerly top-secret technologies tested at Area 51..

The parade is a gaudy and authentic three-hour procession of floats, bands, and marching groups. The parade began months before of course, and is the climax of elaborate planning and preparation. Volunteers mark off the staging points for the 200 parade entries before sunrise, with anxious looks up into the crack of dawn. Will it be sun today or snow? Sun! We only have 15 miles to Carson City; other parade-goers have been on the road for hours before we even set out. It’s full day as we drive down into Eagle Valley from the east. Ahead of us, bright dots are pinned to the sky: a flight of balloons suspended in the crisp morning air. Early arrivals in Carson City are at the Governor’s Mansion for a pancake breakfast provided by the Carson City Republican Women club. Spectators have already unpacked their camp chairs and staked out places on the curb, kids are running around, and vendors are setting up their counters while their pots, pans, and grills heat up. Because traditional Nevada Day is October 31, many people are wearing their Halloween costumes even though Nevada Day is only sometimes on the 31st. Now, it’s the last Friday in October whatever the date, and the parade is the next day. Promptly and proudly at 10 a.m., the parade begins with a rumble as a phalanx of helmeted motorcycle officers rolls south on Carson Street, drawing the rest of the entries into line behind them one line at a time out of their side streets into the procession. Here comes Senator Dean Heller on horseback! A whole posse of other officials and political figures and figurines come trooping after him, and the parade is on. The White Pine County School band bursts into music at the head of the parade and there were other bands both afoot and afloat scattered along its length. There was a small squadron of Model A’s, some rodeo queens from Fernley, and the Nevada Silver Tappers. The parade was more than the floats, marchers, bands, and horses; it was the beautiful day. The trees aflame in the sun, the families, the traditions, the beer and burgers, the ‘ting-ting-ting’ of the single jacks driving into granite, and the memories. It is pleasing to think the spirit of the state was held in suspension within that clear, clean air coming from the mountains, and maybe for a little while it was.
