It may be called Treasure Island, but that doesn't mean you should pack your pickax and shovel and hope to return home with a wooden chest filled with riches. What you will return home with, however, is a renewed sense of adventure and some pretty cool photos of the pirate ships out front in Sirens Cove. 

Inside the resort, which recently underwent an $85 million renovation, get lost in a Caribbean paradise complete with a redesigned lobby and refreshed guest rooms. And of course, there's also the casino, spa, salon, tropical pool and elegant wedding chapel. Not to mention the numerous shops offering up everything from pirate booty to exclusive merchandise from the Cirque du Soleil Mystère store.

Main Attraction: Hands down, Cirque du Soleil's Mystère. The troupe has several shows in residence in Vegas, but Mystère is the original, showcasing pure athleticism and acrobatics. Get swept up into the magical show, whose performances run twice a night Sunday through Wednesday.

Ideal For: Luxury lovers who want to search for their own treasure among the slot machines and gaming tables. It's also great for couples whose dream has always been to get married aboard a pirate ship.

Dining Options: Indulge in Mexican cuisine at Señor Frog’s, or go Hawaiian at Kahunaville. There are also steak, seafood, Vietnamese, pizza and hot dog eateries among Treasure Island's 10 restaurants. 

Accommodations: More than 2,800 renovated guest rooms, including 220 suites.

Fascinating Fact: The international cast of Mystère represents 19 countries and ranges in age from 20 to 79.

Claim to Fame: Sirens Cove

Entertainment Options: Stop at the Western-themed Gilley's Saloon for a side of live country music and line dancing with your barbecue. If you're really brave, try out the mechanical bull.

Activities: Get pampered at the salon or spa, take a dip in the tropical pool (complete with private cabanas), try your luck at the casino, and then spend your winnings at an array of shops.

Casino Stats: More than 95,000 square feet of blackjack, craps, roulette, poker, slots and more.
