According to TripAdvisor users, there are two types of people: those who love Las Vegas and those who don't. I thought I was firmly in the second camp, until my partner suggested we go to Vegas for my first Travelzoo Experience.

It's a common misconception among casual theatre patrons that when a show is Off-Broadway, it's less prestigious or of lower quality than a Broadway show in New York. In fact, Off-Broadway has nothing to do with the quality of the show -- it has not been "kicked off Broadway," as the name might suggest. It simply means the show is housed in a smaller venue, seating anywhere from 100 to 499 audience members. The shows provide a more intimate theatre experience, and they're definitely worth seeking out.

Summer is quickly drifting away. The same places that cost a (tanned) arm and a leg in the middle of summer get much cheaper once the calendar turns to mid-August. This is also the time when airfares start to drop. The savings often stick around through September, so there's still time to create a memorable (end of) summer vacation. Whether it's a last-minute Labour Day getaway or a final summer hurrah.
