NHL – Vegas Golden Knights

A professional hockey team in the middle of the desert may not sound like a natural fit, but this is Las Vegas after all. Winning over the hearts of locals and tourists alike, the team has done surprisingly well (2018 Pacific Division Champions, won three Stanley Cup Playoff series and lost to Washington Capitals in the championship). Plus, the energy in the new T-Mobile arena is electric. So, claim your seat next season.

WNBA – Las Vegas Aces

Announced in late 2017, the WNBA San Antonio Stars have relocated to Las Vegas. With their new home came a new name: The Aces. With last year’s top pick, Kelsey Plum and the recent re-signing of guard Sydney Colson, it seems the odds are in their favor.

Mob Museum – Organized Crime Today Exhibit

Earlier this year, the Mob Museum unveiled the Organized Crime Today Exhibition. Delve deep into the world of forensic science and law enforcement with hands-on experiences. One is in The Crime Lab, which gives guests a better understanding of techniques used during death investigations, including CSI, fingerprint and DNA analysis. In The Use of Force Training you’ll role-play situations to get a better idea of what it’s like to have to make split second decisions when faced with real or perceived threats.
