    I used to frequently read VegasChatter, but I see it's been transformed into...I don't know what. Not sure when that happened, 1 or 2 years ago.

    Does anyone have anything they frequently read that is updated often?

    Vital Vegas seems the closest to a regularly updated page for what I'm looking for

    VMB. I'm not sure what's going on at LVA these days. The problem I have with several of the blogs I've checked out is that the contributors seem to think heaven pays out for scoops but then many of the scoops are little better than what folks should scoop up after taking their dogs to the park.

    VMB. This forum keeps up with Vegas news very well, imo. None of the sites that are strictly devoted to Vegas news stories have really appealed to me.

    VMB. The knowledge base here is phenomenal. IMHO, there isn’t another site/blog that even approaches the breadth and depth of the knowledge here.

    Vital, though the blog is pretty slow these days, Scott's more focused I'd say on his Twitter feed now which is great. If it's Vegas-news-worthy it's usually there. Or here.

    There used to be many choices, but most have gone by the wayside (VegasChatter, VegasBright,etc.). I come here every day.

    The forums on LVA really suck any more, but otherwise good info.
    VMB is very good with a wide range of topics.

    I check VMB, VitalVegas (blog and tweets) on a daily basis. I check VegasChanges every couple of weeks if/when I remember.

    Thanks all! Of course I browse VMB, but it's tough to weed out Las Vegas News (not like local news, but stuff like Vegas chatter or Vital Vegas type stores, new restaurants/clubs/in depth looks a pools or gambling on the strip, stuff like that).

    VMB has all this, but it also has 1000 threads "Should I stay 1 night in Luxor or 1 night in Excalibur?" stuff that's been answered a thousand times and other kind of silly conversations that can only have subjective or anecdotal answers.

    Not that I don't enjoy those are partake, but I also like condensed "news" :wiggle:

    On a daily basis, as mentioned by others, Vital Vegas Twitter page is probably the best.

    I think Tim and Michele Dressen's Five Hundy by Midnight podcast is a good one that provides a weekly synopsis of Vegas happenings.

    I used to read the Review Journal every day online but now they limit the number of articles you can see without paying. Plus no comments on the stories anymore.

    https://www.reviewjournal.com/

    Now I go to the local Fox station but they have a limited number of news articles. Lot of local politics.

    https://www.fox5vegas.com/

    I am always shocked by the number of traffic deaths in the news in Vegas. Nearly every day someone gets killed. Not sure if you're looking for news or message boards but I read both since they have different content.

    Vegaschanges is a great site. It's pretty up to date and posts more frequently than Vitalvegas.

    And, of course VMB is the best of the best.
