All month long, we’ve been giving you the chance to be a high roller on a $10,000 getaway to Las Vegas. True, only 1 lucky winner will get VIP access to Vegas’ red-hot culinary scene or a bird’s-eye view of the Strip from a hot-air balloon, but there’s nothing stopping you from planning a last-minute trip to Sin City. Already picturing yourself lounging in a poolside cabana or testing your luck at the craps tables? Mentally add these Vegas weekend must-haves to your packing list.

For years, cruising has been a popular vacation trend enjoyed by families, couples, and the young and old alike. And as summer comes to an end, there’s no better time to hop on board a cruise ship, visit a few ports and relax, while soaking up the last bit of summer sun — with a drink in hand, of course.
In this week’s throwback Thursday, men and women in vintage swimsuits lounge in and around the pool on board a cruise ship in the 1950s.
Find your own inspiration to sail the open seas, and take a look at Travel’s Best Cruises 2014. Whether you’re looking to cruise the Mediterranean, Caribbean or someplace else, there’s no easier way to see the world than from the deck of a cruise ship.
And don’t forget to check back every week this month for our Vintage Summer Throwback Thursdays!
