Las Vegas has been keeping busy, even in the midst of the pandemic, opening new attractions and debuting new hotels.

In terms of hotel openings, the adults-only, 1.25-million-sq.-ft. Circa Resort & Casino, located in Downtown Las Vegas, is now open; and The Cromwell Las Vegas on the Strip has reopened as an adults-only resort. David Copperfield returns to the David Copperfield Theater at MGM Grand, with a maximum audience of 250 guests during the initial phase; and ABSINTHE has reopened at Caesars Palace’s center-Strip stage, where guests can expect a new cabaret-style seating format, allowing parties of two to five to reserve tables positioned no less than six feet apart. The Venetian Resort will debut the “This is Christmas” holiday show, set to begin Nov. 27, while the iconic rink at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is set to return Nov. 18, with social distancing and reduced capacity strictly enforced (guests will be required to wear face coverings unless eating or drinking while seated).

A couple more highlights include:
