Show Stoppers

If you love being entertained and delighted, you’ll love these RTX destinations where music, comedy, and all around fun can be found day and night.

Fremont Street Las Vegas

Las Vegas

News flash: Las Vegas has shows. Lots of shows. Shows that wow, shows that make you laugh or cry and shows that mystify. They’re all here. See Cirque du Soleil, Celine Dion, Absinthe at Caesars Palace, Penn and Teller, Carrot Top, and Blue Man Group. Top it all off with world-class cuisine, literal all night gaming and people watching, and a gorgeous desert backdrop and you can see why Vegas is such a popular destination.

Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach March 2017 (7)In addition to a lively beach scene and family-friendly outdoor activities, (putt putt, anyone?) Myrtle Beach features a surprising amount of shows for any age group. Catch a Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament, Legends in Concert, Pirates Voyage Dinner and Show, drama and comedy in The Whole Shebang, the variety show ONE at the Alabama Theatre, and the Carolina Opry, which has been voted number one show for 30 years straight.

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe has the unique contrast of a stunning mountain setting and alpine lake, and a large variety of shows and gaming to suit any taste. It’s like Las Vegas, immersed in nature. The best part is, the skiing scene ensures there is no off season, so popular acts are around all year. Check out big name concerts, magic acts, ElectroSwing Burlesque, and more.


The surrounding area suffered from devastating wildfires in late 2016. But the show scene is alive and well, fortunately, and Gatlinburg needs tourism support to rebuild. Their live shows have everything from music and laughs, to intrigue and amazement. See a variety of magic shows, Dixie Stampede, the Country Tonite Show, and don’t miss a show at the Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre, proclaimed a National Historical Treasure by the city of Gatlinburg.
