Las Vegas is in seventh place, with its endless array of fun times for every type of traveler. Animal lovers are particularly in luck, as Las Vegas and North Las Vegas boast the most zoos and aquariums per capita in the country. Vegas also ranked impressively for most ice cream and frozen yogurt shops per capita, perfect for curing your sweet tooth. © Choneschones | Dreamstime.com

The first zip line on the Las Vegas Strip is now open. FLY LINQ soars above The LINQ Promenade and was developed by the same team behind the Promenade’s High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel.

 

FLY LINQ consists of 10 side-by-side zip lines, capable of simultaneously launching all riders. The launch tower is 114 feet, or 14 stories, while the landing tower is 54 feet, or about five stories. You can fly either seated or on your stomach, superhero-style. The zip line is a total of 1,121 feet and the ride, which flies by at about 35 mph, takes only 35 to 45 seconds.

 

“FLY LINQ is an exciting addition to The LINQ Promenade’s attraction portfolio, adding a new dynamism to the environment, regardless whether you’re riding or waving at the fliers from below,” said Shaun Swanger, senior vice president of attractions, retail and leasing, Caesars Entertainment. “We’re thrilled to begin 2019 and invite the world to come and experience this exhilarating attraction.”

 

FLY LINQ is open daily at 11:30 a.m. and riders must be at least 60 pounds, no more than 300 pounds and at least 40 inches tall. Tickets for a seated ride are $25 and tickets for a superhero-style ride are $35. After 5 p.m., ticket prices increase to $30 for seated and $40 for superhero-style. The ride is open until midnight, Sunday through Thursday, and until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

Hotel Joule

I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.

Under $100: El Raval, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella (or “Old City”) is often packed with tourists who wander up and down Las Ramblas spending way too many euros on overpriced paella and sangria. But the border neighborhood of El Raval is just a few steps from the bustle, but worlds away from the exorbitant prices.
