And while partying 'til all hours of the night/morning is fun and all, there's a chill side of the city that's well worth exploring. Here, your guide to doing Vegas the laid-back way.

If you've ever dreamed of living out your own Gatsby fantasy like Leo, one of the early-20th-century mansions that inspired the set design of Baz Luhrmann's 2013 film is on the market for a cool $85 million, according to Trulia.
This 14,551 square-foot colonial-style mansion sits on 7.7 acres of gated land on Long Island's Kings Point, in an area of the North Shore that inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald's fictional West Egg in The Great Gatsby. Built in 1928, this 18-bedroom palace also has a wine-tasting room with a full cellar plus an in-home hair salon.
