You might be headed to Las Vegas for New Media Expo (NMX), the yearly gathering of blogger big shots, internet guru’s and media friends.
If you’re like me you love to travel hack a business trip and add on a day or two before or after to maximize your fun since you already have to put out the business expense.
Downtown Las Vegas has become a hub for technology and entrepreneurship since the relocation of Zappos to the area and Tony Hsieh announcing his commitment to invest in the community now known as the Downtown Project.
Here are a few places that you make want to expand your trip to see, lounge around, shop, work or play:
