1 2 V E G A S S E P T E M B E R 2 0 1 7 | M O D E R N L U X U R Y . C O M Watching the fireworks from atop Lone Mountain on the Fourth of July, I was in awe looking down at the vast view of our stunning city. From there, you could see the entire valley including the 4 miles of bright lights on the Las Vegas Strip. It was so peaceful and serene, yet 20 miles away there were more than 300,000 people celebrating the holiday, taking in all the entertainment and fine dining that Las Vegas has to offer. With autumn now upon us (my favorite season of the year), I'm looking forward to the picturesque beauty of the leaves changing colors and the smell of pines. (Yes, we have those in Las Vegas, too.) I moved to Las Vegas more than 30 years ago from the Midwest to escape the snow and bask in year-round sunshine. And in Las Vegas, I can still capture the season with a short 30-minute drive up to Mount Charleston. Along with the anticipation of cooler weather, it's my favorite time of the year for sports, and while we won't be able to attend a Las Vegas Raiders game here for a couple of years, Las Vegans are def initely ready to see our f irst professional sports team, the Vegas Golden K nights, hit the ice. is fall also marks a new beginning as Vegas joins Modern Luxury, which enables us to bring you even more fabulous luxury coverage, from fashion to travel—both domestic and international—and benefit from our now enormous network of 83 magazines in 24 markets! We had a fantastic summer: Tyson Beckford, our summer cover star, hosted our incredible anniversary party and took selfies all night with his fans. We want to give a big shoutout to our presenting sponsor, Downtown Summerlin, and our venue, Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa; event designer Freshwata; cocktails and bubbles from Absolut Elyx and Perrier-Jouët; floral arrangements from Sun City Summerlin Florist; and fantastic treats and activations from Carl's Donuts, H2O Media, TruFusion, Photo & Go and En Fuego Cigars. Your enthusiasm to join us in celebrating our anniversary gave us a few more reasons to love Las Vegas like we do. Cheers.
