About Casa de
Like any of us has ever been cool enough to be called Mr. Las Vegas. Four miles from the Strip, iconic entertainer Wayne Newton has opened his 52-acre estate, Casa de Shenandoah for the world to see. Heads up Nosy Rosy, this is your chance to get behind those golden gates and see how the other half lives. They’ll even give you a free ride from the Strip. Choose from whichever package suits your stalker level – we mean interest level – but all tickets include a documentary film in the Shenandoah Theater, access to Wayne Newton’s private jet, luxury car collection, exotic animal exhibit and a showcase of his champion Arabian horses. The great thing is, you don’t have to spend hours reading the descriptions of the museum artifacts, Mr. Las Vegas himself recorded video descriptions throughout the exhibits telling you the legendary story behind everything you see. Other packages include a tour of the mansion itself.
More Information on Casa de
Here’s a couple of things you probably won’t see anywhere else: a Baccarat Crystal billiard table, hand-carved Carpathian Elm ceilings, a private art collection featuring Van Gogh and Renoir paintings, and Louis XV antique furniture. You can even tour secret rooms and hidden passages – helloooo every childhood fantasy you’ve ever had. Wayne Newton’s childhood home is also on the property and open for tours along with the equestrian facilities for his prized Aramus Arabians.
Here’s a fun fact: Wayne Newton started raising horses because he wanted one as a kid but couldn’t afford it (grab the tissues because the waterworks should start right about now). There’s also an elusive “Mr. Las Vegas Experience” that we can only hope includes a bowl of fettuccini Alfredo and a lock of Wayne’s jet-black hair. That’s right peeps, Vegas Vacation was really filmed on the property.
If you’re a Wayniac, animal enthusiast, music lover or just plain tired of trying to peek over his 10-foot wall, Casa de Shenandoah has a little something for everyone. If you don’t have time to reach stalker status – we mean time for a tour – but still want to see a little peak of the estate, they play a 20-minute film every 30 minutes in the Wayne Newton Theatre that is free to the public.
