Within easy reach of the glitz and glamor of the Vegas Strip but a world away on the shores of a 320-acre lake, Loews Lake Las Vegas
offers a resort experience for wholly affordable prices. (Rates average $160 per night.) You can loll on the resort's white sand beach, grab a kayak (or hop in a gondola
) for lake exploration, swim in one of the two signature pools, taste master sushi chef Osamu Fujita's culinary creations, or escape to the Moroccan-style Spa Moulay for some soothing body treatments. Loews Lake Las Vegas also caters to golfers with a special package at The Golf Club at SouthShore. Named by Golf Digest
one of the "Top 10 New Private Golf Courses in America" when it debuted in 1996, SouthShore's 6,917-yard championship course was designed by Jack Nicklaus on the shores of Lake Las Vegas. For a limited time, two players can play for the price of one on SouthShore's Jack Nicklaus Signature Course. All rental equipment and luxurious accommodations are included with rates starting as low as $299/night
. Rate is subject to availability and YouFirst Benefits apply. 2 for 1 rates available until September 6th, 2010.
