What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, which is why it’s seen as an adventure destination! Those seven words formed one of the most successful tourist campaigns in history. Yet, it illustrated the allure and mystery of Sin City and brought new tourists to the desert in record numbers.
But if you want to see what all the hubbub is all about, then plan a trip to Las Vegas and find out why people keep coming back for more. Those, who have been, know where to go and what to see while those new to the scene might want a few tips. And that’s where we come in so hold on to your hat, let’s go to Vegas, baby!
Bring Your Appetite
If you are on a limited budget, there is plenty to eat in Las Vegas and you won’t be relegated to dull old food courts or fast-food joints. The buffets were known for outstanding value but now that the global pandemic has crippled virtually everything in its path, the famous food buffets could very well be a thing of the past. Hopefully, they will return but if they don’t you can be certain that the master marketers will come up with another concept to replace them.
If you are a bona fide foodie and you have money to spend then you have landed in heaven on earth. Every single opulent hotel on the Las Vegas Strip has several stunning restaurants that feature five-star amenities and cuisine that you won’t soon forget. There are oodles of Michelin star chefs on and off the Strip so make sure to check them out, drink the wine, and order the specials. You won’t regret it!
Gambling in Glitter Gulch
Even if you’re not a gambler, you have to pull a slot, bet a game at the sportsbook of your choice, and then take a seat for world-class people-watching. It can all be done whether you are visiting the Freemont area or the Strip itself. Gambling venues are omnipresent in Sin City and you won’t need to look far to find one.
If you are residing in a hotel equipped with a casino then make sure to get a player’s card because the more you gamble, whether you win or lose, the more “comp” you will receive. Depending on how much and how often you bet, the comp can add up, and before you know it you are visiting a Las Vegas show on the house!
Check out the Clubs
If it is nightlife you are after then look no further than one of the many jammin’ hotspots dotting the city. Lounge by the pool and watch the temperature rise as world-famous DJs spin their disks and make the music come alive. Bottle service is the only way to fly and fly high you will when the bass gets pumpin’ and the bodies get rockin’!
Wet Republic, Liquid, Marquee, and Encore Beach Club are the best pool scenes in Vegas but if you want a traditional club without the wet and wild then check out Tao (Venetian Resort), XS (Wynn), Omnia (Caesars Palace), Hakkasan Nightclub (MGM Grand), Drai’s (The Cromwell), Marquee (Cosmopolitan), and/or Jewel Nightclub at the Aria.
Lake Las Vegas
If you like the water then you will love what Lake Las Vegas Water Sports has in store for you. Whether it be boating, paddleboarding, kayaking, and or even taking a dare and going flyboarding (where you are lifted into the air on a board and propelled by a hose beneath the board) there is plenty to do and all day to do it. There is even an inflatable Aqua Park that allows you to slip, slide, dive, and ride on top of the lake!
The Mob Museum
There are several museums featuring any number of motifs and genres but this one is a little bit different than all of the rest. You will see no Picasso’s here, only a history of Sin City’s notorious past with one-of-a-kind pictures and artifacts of a time long ago when mobster Bugsy Siegel turned a patch of desert into the hippest, most decadent, adult playground in the world.
There are also interactive features that allow you to draw a gun in a simulated environment featuring good guys and bad. Just make sure you know which is which so you don’t wind up firing on the wrong one!
