It is almost impossible to think of Las Vegas without our ubiquitous entertainment options (gambling, eating, shopping and partying) coming immediately to mind. There is much more to experience here than the stereotype, however, and with cooling weather accompanying the arrival of September, fall is a great time to plan a visit to Tahiti Resort and sample autumnal Las Vegas. Tahiti Resort is a family friendly, island-inspired sunny property just three miles from the world famous Las Vegas Strip. Book your fall visit today!

Boca Park is open October 5 -31. Additional locations open October 12-31.
