Modern and contemporary, you don’t get that “been there, done that” feeling at the Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa, but you do get that old Vegas flair. A big plus: Check in without ever passing a slot machine. And while you’re there, don’t forget to look up — the lobby and bar chandeliers feature more than three million pieces of Swarovski crystal. A great treat is the resort’s Adventure Spa experience, where we hiked, biked, and rode horseback through breathtaking Red Rock Canyon National Park.
