A trio of offerings in Las Vegas:

Stretch, strengthen your body, and find inner harmony in the presence of bottlenose dolphins at The Mirage Hotel and Casino. The one-hour Yoga Among the Dolphins class takes place in an underwater viewing area in Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. View the dolphins through two large windows. A speaker pipes in real-time dolphin sounds. The class accommodates a maximum of eight participants, of all levels.

A bar with a twist

At the new American Burger Works (ABX) you have your choice of more than 15 french fry dipping sauces. The simple, cafe-style eatery serves burgers on lightly toasted rolls and Belgian-style fries. From the dips, try black olive mayo, chili-cilantro sour cream, horseradish cocktail sauce, Jack Daniel’s ketchup, citrus aioli, or bacon-mustard. ABX is one of three new restaurants in the Excalibur Hotel and Casino (go next door to Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ for Texas-style ribs or upstairs to Buca di Beppo for Italian fare). Burgers $8-$9, fries $3. 702-597-7817, excalibur.com/res

The new Hyde Bellagio in the Bellagio Resort Casino offers an early-evening lounge experience that turns into a lively nightclub scene after 10. The venue has an outdoor terrace, with window seats and plush sofas that overlook the Fountains of Bellagio. Sit and watch three new water shows — choreographed to Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” The Beatles’ “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” and Glenn Miller’s “In the Mood” — while sipping one of a dozen signature cocktails. Try the cucumber watermelon margarita. 702-693-8700, hydebellagio.com
