Welcome to our brand-spanking-new website.
It took the better part of five years to redesign, upgrade, refine, beta-test, and launch this bad boy. But we persevered -- in order to improve your every move here and make the thousands of pages of information we've compiled online over the past 20 years more easy to access, more intuitive to locate, and more fun to read.
Today's News hasn't skipped a beat; there you'll find the current happenings and a complete history going back to August 2006 in the archive.
Everyone, LVA members and non-members alike, can now access the entire Question of the Day archive -- more than 4,500 pages of every question you can possibly imagine about Las Vegas answered.
And be sure to check out the hundreds of FAQ; we guarantee you'll find a ton of fascinating commentary, description, summaries, fine points, and esoterica about this one-of-a-kind city.
The listings include 106 hotels and casinos; (an astounding) 762 restaurants; 102 shows, 358 bars and lounges, nightclubs, comedy clubs, and live-music venues; 176 things to do, and every one-off entertainment event and convention on the calendar for the next three months.
From the home page (accessible from anywhere on the site by clicking on the Las Vegas Advisor banner at the top), you can link to Las Vegas' Top Ten Values, the reader-poll archive (with more than 250 polls), more than a dozen webcams, Jean Scott's and David McKee's blogs, the LVA casino, Gambling with An Edge, Vegas with an Edge and its trip reports, and every deal we offer.
Deals! Oy, do we have deals! You can access the promos and discounts in six travel categories in the Deals drop-down. And you can take advantage of every one by being a Gold member of this website.
If you're not a Diamond or Platinum member of LVA and have never seen the Las Vegas Advisor newsletter, read a sample issue here.
For the first time, the comment function is enabled for every page on the site. Anyone can read the comments, but you must be a Gold member and logged in to comment. The comments post immediately without any approval process, though we reserve the right to delete them if we find them objectionable.
Best of all, it's all searchable and in a number of ways. Search functions are available for the Question of the Day and Today's News archives. There's also a global function that searches the entire site. And advanced searches allow you to filter each category within a variety of parameters that narrow your searches to exactly what you're looking for.
Be sure to click the More buttons at the bottom of all the category landing pages -- some categories have multiple pages of listings.
Finally, check back to this space in the coming days and weeks to get introduced to all the upcoming cool and useful features we have planned for our new and improved online presence.
We sincerely hope you like the new LasVegasAdvisor.com.
