Thrice the ice: This year Las Vegas boasts three skating rinks on the Strip. Fronting the Venetian is a rink made of synthetic "Ven-ice," which doesn't require refrigeration. The skating surface is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, and the fee to skate is $10-$15 for one hour. The rink at the Cosmopolitan is made of real ice and overlooks the Strip. It's $15 for all-day access. The third is a real-ice surface at Caesars Palace that's about to open; no fee has been announced.

More holidays: Other places to look for holiday displays and events are Sam's Town (a decked-out atrium and Santa), Bellagio (conservatory) and Silverton (Underwater Santa), along with the noncasino Fremont Street Experience and Fashion Show Mall.

QUESTION: Is it still possible to get rooms for New Year's Eve?

ANSWER: Yes. In a check of 93 hotel-casinos late last month, 87 had rooms available. The lowest-priced room for New Year's Eve was at the Lucky Club ($90), and other good deals were found at Texas Station and Fiesta Rancho (each $110). The most expensive rooms were at Nobu inside Caesars Palace, two nights (the minimum) for $1,538.
