Viva Las Vegas, Baby!We’re heading to Vegas soon and seeing as this will be the first trip for us a travel app to help get the most out of it is a must. I checked around and downloaded a few but one app in particular really stood out. Viva Las Vegas, Baby! Viva is a world apart from most of travel apps out there. It wasn’t put together by a travel agency, a city, or a government so it mentions not only the good but the bad as well. I wish every travel app was like this.

Viva Las Vegas, Baby! is put together by popular travel guidebook author, journalist, blogger and die-hard poker player Sara Benson. She has written about Vegas for National Geographic Traveler, the LA Times, Lonely Planet, the BBC and the UK Telegraph and Guardian.

Viva Las Vegas Filters

Viva Las Vegas, Baby! filters out the noise so you can get the most out of your trip. It goes beyond a simple listing or address directory and offers first hand accounts of the best and worst in Vegas including tips and a list of Do’s and Don’ts. Another feature I like is the commenting that gets updated regularly. Nothing quite like first hand information from people who’ve tried something and share their thoughts about it. Sara even responds to the comments and questions travels have. How’s that for a travel app?
