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

Las Vegas reinvents itself once again to remain one of the world’s top entertainment capitals. The Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp., in collaboration with Las Vegas Sands Corp., is elevating sensory experiences to build the world’s largest dome and LED screens that will reshape the entertainment industry.

 

The MSG Sphere began its construction in 2018 and is projected for completion in 2023 with an estimated cost of at least $1.8 billion dollars. The new venue will stand at 366 feet tall and 516 feet wide, and can accommodate 17,500 seated guests. The sphere will be located right off of the Strip, behind the Venetian. Entertainment hosted at this venue will transport guests into a whole new dimension with full HD screens covering the dome at 19,000 by 13,500 pixels, covering an area around the size of three football fields. For audio, MSG Sphere will use beamforming technology to project sound to all parts of the stadium directly, rather than blasted over speakers. This allows the stadium to broadcast several languages to different parts of the arena without interruption and without additional devices or translator systems, bringing together people from all over the world. The infrasound haptic system that vibrates audience members to literally feel what is going on around them.

 

Each seat in the area will be equipped with high-speed internet to allow attendees to share what is happening before them with friends on social media and for interactive experiences from artists and performers. MSG hopes to bring this technology to Radio City Music Hall in New York City for the annual Rockettes Christmas show and has plans to open a venue in London. No dates have been announced for those projects.

Recharge and Renew at The Spa at Four Seasons Philadelphia

As a mom, you’re not allowed to pick favorites. With a growing baby in my belly and a toddler guiding my daily routines, my own favorites often take a back seat as I make the daily choice to swap healthy foods for junk food cravings and toddler tunes for windows-down, volume-up jams. But when I heard my favorite spa was relaunching its facial program, I felt zero guilt — of the mom variety or otherwise — about taking a morning off and booking myself a nice, long, rejuvenating facial at The Spa at Four Seasons Philadelphia at Comcast Center.
