In this Las Vegas Podcast, we talk with guidebook author Lenore Greiner about her new book Las Vegas.
Californian Lenore Greiner’s Las Vegas peels back the cover on world famous Sin City, and reveals wonderful local gems – experiences that only the locals have previously known about, hidden behind the glitz and glamour in the Mojave Desert. A well-travelled writer, Lenore Greiner writes about places that inspire, excite, and interest her – and Las Vegas obviously does all three.
Greiner started traveling alone at 17, heading to Baja, Mexico right after high-school graduation; by 19, she was attending school in Perugia, Italy, and spending spring break on Crete. Over the following years – despite marriage and children – she has continued to travel, albeit not always alone.
“My husband is one of my best travel companions,” she claims. “He doesn’t even need to know much about the destination, just what clothing is required,” she laughs.
Lenore’s lifetime of travel has meant a cornucopia of experiences – she has ridden horses with gauchos in Argentina, meditated in an Indian ashram, explored the Mayan city-state of Tikal in Guatemala, snorkeled around Bora Bora, hiked the Australian outback and much more.
When not on the road, Lenore, a longtime travel journalist, writes for several travel portals. Her blog TravelGearForWomen.com is a popular and helpful resource within the online travel blogging community.
