Would a Las Vegas Timeshare Improve Your Summer Vacation Plans?

Would a Las Vegas Timeshare Improve Your Summer Vacation Plans?

According to Orbitz’s annual Insider Index, summer vacation plans are on the rise this year. The Orbitz survey of nearly 1000 US vacationers reveals that among those responding, 77 percent are definitely taking a vacation in 2012. And of those vacationing, many travelers are allotting more money to their travel budget, with 53 percent of consumers planning to spend more than $1,500 on summer vacations as compared to 39 percent in 2011. Fifty-six percent of travelers are planning to vacation by car while 39 percent will include air travel in their vacation planning.

Although glittering Las Vegas ranks tops on the vacation destination list with New York City ranking second and Orlando a close third, not everyone who heads to Las Vegas goes for the nightlife and the Vegas Strip. Las Vegas vacations  and spacious Las Vegas timeshares are a top family destination, with many family-friendly shows and attractions, great golf, and extraordinary outdoor escapes. The Red Rock National Conservation Area, also known as Red Rock Canyon, is less than 20 miles outside the city to the west, and affords spectacular scenery and endless opportunities for outdoor fun.

Exploring the Great Outdoors, Las Vegas Style

Known for its striking red rock formations and natural canyons, Red Rock National Conservation Areas is surrounded by nearly 200,000 acres of land and includes more than 30 miles of hiking trails, picnic spots, and scenic rest stops along a 13-mile picturesque route. Although hiking, biking, and jeep tours are all popular ways to explore the area, one of the biggest draws in outdoor activities at Red Rocks is horseback riding.

James Hoke, president of TourGuy.com, LLC, explains, “There are a number of unrelated public interests that are driving the revived interest in horseback riding. Everything from the recent success of the movie War Horse to the promise of the upcoming Olympics with Elizabeth ‘Beezie’ Madden vying for her fourth gold medal in London.”

Value in Las Vegas Timeshares

No matter what draws you to vacation in the Las Vegas area, there are always excellent deals on Las Vegas timeshare resales and Las Vegas timeshare rentals. And the spaciousness of timeshare vacation accommodations makes them a great choice for a Las Vegas vacation, whether you plan a couples getaway, a family vacation, or a memorable trip with friends.

Interval International Timeshare Exchange Makes it Easier to See Your Next Vacation

Members can choose the destination overviews the wish to see or view the Resort Directory for an overview. By year end, Interval International timeshare exchange plans to have added at least an additional 30 videos to the collection.

Interval’s Senior Vice President of Consumer Marketing, Sharon Freed, explains, “We’ve created this enhanced content to assist our members in making vacation plans when using any of our programs. But we also feel it will help resort clients using multimedia presentations at their sales tables to bring to life the benefits of exchanging to a broad range of locations.”

As Interval understands, “When making their vacation plans, Interval members want as much information about the resort and destination as they can find.” And why not? Vacation time is precious and hard to come by for most busy families.

You want your vacation days to be the best they can possibly be and suit the way you and your family like to vacation. Knowing more details, having them readily available to you via quality, high definition video, makes that easier.

Interval International calls this taking information access to the next level. Clearly it’s one more effort by Interval to make your vacation ownership experience the best it can possibly be.

PH Towers Timeshare Gets New Name, Hilton Brand, and CeeLo as a Neighbor

Big Change at PH Towers Timeshare

It’s official, the former Planet Hollywood Towers by Westgate (known as PH Towers timeshare) has been renamed Elara, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club.

Last week, Hilton Worldwide announced that the new name of the former PH Towers Westgate timeshare resort is “Elara, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club.

In November 2011, the property was sold, and its new owner, LV Tower 52 LLC, hired Hilton Grand Vacations to rebrand the resort and provide future timeshare sales and marketing services. The 52-story Las Vegas timeshare resort currently has more than 17,000 vacation interval timeshare owners.

Four Hilton Grand Vacations Club Resorts in Las Vegas

Located on the center section of the famous “Las Vegas Strip,”  The Elara now becomes the fourth Hilton Grand Vacations Club in Las Vegas, and as explained in the Las Vegas Sun, provides more than 48,000 Hilton Grand Vacations Club members with a “home resort” in Las Vegas. Adjacent to the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino complex, the Elara offers easy access to the more than 170 shops and restaurants along the Miracle Mile.

If you become a vacation property owner at the Elara, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club, not only will you be adjacent to some of the best dining and entertainment opportunities in Vegas, but you will become the new next-door neighbor to singer and entertainer CeeLo Green. This week, Green announced that he is bringing his show, “Cee Lo Green Presents LOBERACE” to the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, where it will become a headliner show, while the resort  will become CeeLo’s official Las Vegas residence.

Now to put a little Vegas-style fun in your Thursday morning, enjoy this video of CeeLo performing on Letterman … because we all need a little “Bright Lights, Bigger City” from time to time.
