Las Vegas icon Wayne Newton has opened his home Casa de Shenandoah to the public. For only $35, you can tour the performer’s lavish estate and take a peek inside the legendary entertainer’s life and lifestyle. “It’s been a dream of mine to open Casa de Shenandoah to my fans from around the world for years, and that dream is now a reality,” says Newton.
The Casa de Shenandoah experience begins across the street at the visitors’ center where guests watch a brief movie about Newton and his property. Once inside, visitors receive an intimate glimpse of the life of the singer who has been synonymous with Las Vegas since he first took the stage as a teenager at the Fremont Hotel in 1959. The tour showcases his personal collection of rare automobiles, including cars formerly owned by Johnny Cash and Steve McQueen, and a lifetime of memorabilia, including gifts from friends such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and Jack Benny.
Guests also get to see Newton’s rare Native American artifact collection, tour his private jet, and learn about Newton’s commitment to the armed forces with rare military keepsakes and never-before-seen letters to Newton from U.S. presidents on display. Afterwards, tour attendees are introduced to Newton’s Arabian horses in the well-equipped equestrian facilities, in addition to the variety of exotic animals that are members of the Newton Family, such as “Boo” the capuchin monkey, “Charlie” the penguin, wallabies, peacocks and more.
After the tour, don’t forget to shop Kat’s Korner, a ladies boutique featuring apparel, home decor, and accessories. For more information about Casa de Shenandoah, or to book your tour, go to casadeshenandoah.com.
