As promised yesterday, we are giving away a $250 M Life gift card (courtesy of Hyatt) to help Hyatt and M Life celebrate the launch of their new “Make Vegas Yours” digital hub.  I love Las Vegas, and have visited the city well over a dozen times, and yet I still learned some new things to do in Vegas on their website.  In fact, it made me more excited for my next Vegas trip, which I would suppose makes it a success, at least for me.  I’m also looking forward to the daily new content and frequent giveaways that are said to be a part of the new hub for M Life and Vegas info.

  1. Always have to over to the Bellagio and see what the gardens looks like. Depending on subject maybe even the art museum.

  2. What I love doing most in Vegas is finding a sports book and sitting around watching some games. Of the M Life properties, I like the New York New York area best, if only because they have some good pizza nearby 🙂

  3. I’ve never been to Vegas, but hoping to go this winter. Would love to try some of the great pools like the LIQUID Pool lounge at Aria.

  4. I really enjoy the pool at The MGM Grand. I spent the weekend there recently and the size and variety of things to do (big pool, small pool, lazy river, etc) makes it a mainstay.

  5. While Las Vegas is a pretty lousy place overall, there are many restaurants that cater to people with various food allergies, which I appreciate.

  6. From my last trip: Being greeted by the room itself when you walk in at Aria (close second: the breakfast buffet’s stuffed pancakes!)

  7. I’ve never been to Las Vegas but I would love to go and check out the pools at any of the M Life properties!

  8. One favorite thing to do is dine several of the wonderful restaurants. (Current favorite is Sage, but there are so many more!)

  9. I’ve never been able to catch Manilow in Vegas. But I love that I theoretically could. So, yeah, I’d like to do that while I still may have the chance. 🙂

  10. I’m going for the first time on August 28th! I’m sure I’ll have plenty of favorite things after my trip!

  11. I love the buffet at the Bellagio. Then, I love to walk through the conservatory and look at the flowers and admire the decorations of the season– just gorgeous! Then, I love to go watch the beautiful fountains and listen to the music as the water dances to the fountains. Where else but Vegas? It is truly my favorite destination!

  12. A steak at Gallagher’s in NY NY is in my top 3 steak experiences of my life (top in Vegas as the other two were Chicago and New York). Everything about the meal hit the spot and what I needed at the time.

  13. I definitely want to ride the Roller coaster at New York-New York next time I am in Vegas, especially since it was down for repairs when I visited last January!

  14. Vegas is an incredible city. I love staying at the MGM, taking in a shiw, the lazy river, and the Blackhack tables.

  15. Staying at Aria, using their gym, relaxing by the pool, dressing up, going out to a special dinner at Le cirque and then gambling. These are a few of my favorite vegas things!

  16. I enjoying staying at Aria and going to their nightclub. Then after you finish partying, getting back to your ream doesn’t require much effort.

  17. At the risk of sounding like a degenerate with a gambling problem — I love spending hours playing craps at a hot and lively table.

  18. This credit would sure come in handy during my August Vegas trip! Love Vegas and it’s great restaurants and bars.

  19. After M Life matched my Hyatt Status, I was able to skip the long lines in the Taxi Que and save probably about 25 minutes……a small, important benefit that i REALLY appreciate taking advantage of at the M Life properties!!

  20. I actually live in Las Vegas and absolutely love it! My husband and I are teachers here, so we don’t have a lot of money to spend on the expensive stuff, but my favorite thing we’ve done so far is see Penn & Teller. Their AMAZING!

  21. It’s Vegas. It’s all about the food and drinks. Actually, I love doing breakfast at the Paris buffet. I like the ambience as well as the food.

  22. Even though I am not a night club person, I LOVED going to LIGHT! I was there on opening night and it was amazing. Can’t wait to go again!

  23. it’s all about being by the stellar pool, then hitting up the great food buffets and restaurants! relax & dine, vegas style!

  24. Playing in the many casinos that M Life/Hyatt Gold Passport has to offer is FUN and exciting! I am going in August again and can’t wait!

  25. The Fountains Brunch at Jasmine in Bellagio is as wonderful experience. This has got to be one of the most beautiful Chinese restaurants in the USA

  26. Nothing beats getting off of the elevator at 7am, walking through the casino and seeing people gambling, smoking, and drinking. Because…well, it’s Vegas after all.

  27. I’ve never been, but both the buffet and shows sound nice. I really can’t decide which I’d like more. 🙂

  28. Performing my daily early morning run (before the sun beats down and foot traffic gets heavy) between properties on LV Blvd plus getting a stair step workout as a bonus what with all those elevated, circuitous walking bridges over intersections.

  29. chilling at the wheel of fortune slot machines or trying my hand at blackjack or tossing some dice at craps

  30. Trying to send my wife and her girlfriend there for her birthday in October. I’m sure they will love to go see the Thunder from Down Under..

  31. My favorite thing to do in Vegas is to play blackjack while drinking something fruity. I love free drinks while playing 🙂

  32. I go to Vegas mainly to go drink and dance at the various clubs and definitely check out the Circus De Soleil shows. Each time I visit Vegas I always have to watch at least one different show.

  33. I love to play Blackjack and Let it Ride. I think it is so much fun to go around to the different casinos and see the different decor. We aways rent a car so that we can do this.

  34. Love strolling through the Conservatory at Bellagio. Looking forward to two trips to Vegas in September and staying at Aria!

  35. I get my eyes a workout by doing an eye roll anytime someone in a colorful shirt tries to hand me explicit material. Or, whenever I see people actually paying money to drunken cartoon characters for a picture. Weird.

  36. It may be a total cliche but it seriously is hands down my favorite thing in Vegas – The Bellagio fountains, at night, playing Sinatra.

  37. I’ve never been to Vegas but I’d love to explore everything they offer, including shows, the casinos, and all the ridiculous food and entertainment options!

  38. Vegas has some great food. I love the wide variety of options. Mirage BLT Burger for burgers. Javiers at Aria for some Mexican influenced seafood. so many choices!!!!!!!

  39. The fountains at Bellagio are always a winner! That would be after indulging in one of the happy hours, of course.

  40. Me & the Missus love dining at Le Cirque and looking out at the dancing fountains – an extraordinary indulgence! Thanks!

  41. The past 3 years, I have attended the iHeart Radio Music Festival at the MGM Grand. I am already making plans for this years concert in September.

  42. today I’m feeling LUCKY! Like, win a $250 M Life gift card lucky 🙂 So, I think WHEN I get to Vegas I’ll put a $20 bill down on #25 of the third roulette table I walk past…..

  43. #charliepalmersteakhouse $200 steakfor my trip in October would be awesome. Not sure what the rest of them would be eating!

  44. Hanging out at Tatuado in Circus Circus because my favorite musician owns it and I’m always there trying to catch a glimpse of him.

  45. Would love to stay at the MGM because the first time I ever walked into their casino, I sat down at a slot machine and won big almost immediately!

  46. I remember staying at the Luxor years ago. There was a hot tub in the room, and when it rained, it ran down the slanted window. I would love to stay there again.

  47. My favorite thing to do is soak up the sun and decent weather in Vegas when winter arrives where I live.

  48. I’ll be taking a trip to vegas in early august. Hope to be able to use this card on an awesome show and the Bellagio Buffet!

  49. I love the dinners at the upscale restaurants– the ones that I would never go to when I am at home. I love to be pampered. Can’t help it !

  50. I like reserving a limo pickup at the airport for my whole group. Coming down the escalator and seeing a guy holding a sign with my name on it makes us feel like high rollers…then we go find the $5 BJ tables!

  51. Love the Mandarin Oriental tearoom for a great afternoon decompression after all the hype of the strip. Great girlfriend spot for late lunch.

  52. I love the casino floor at MGM. Always lively and energetic on a Friday/Saturday night. Great atmosphere, tons of tables.
