Considering the sheer number of things there are to do in Las Vegas, spending just two days there can get pretty hectic. The key is to come up with a plan of attack—a way to make sure you hit some of the best hot spots—but also leave enough breathing room for relaxation.
Whether a poker player, adventure lover, or dayclub pool party hopper, I can guarantee you that you can find a lot to do in Vegas that’s your speed. So today I’m coming at you with my Las Vegas travel guide on how to do Sin City for a weekend.
Ok, so you have made it to Vegas, you have your bags but where are you staying? For the sake of this post, lets say you are staying at Caesars Palace, which conveniently located in the heart of the famed Las Vegas Strip. If you love Fine dining, exciting nightlife and entertainment, relaxing spas and salons, boutique shopping, and a buzzing casino then you’ve come to the right place.
Ok you got your hotel all set up, now what? Go to the Bacchanal. Located inside Caesar’s Palace, this buffet has anything and everything you want..but at a price. I would head hear first before you partake in all of the drinking and debauchery
You’ve had breakfast now its time to spend a little bit money…Las Vegas is the gambling mecca for professionals and novices alike. Whether you enjoy the penny slots or are a seasoned poker player, no trip is a complete without trying to go home with a little extra money.
Now you have won some money or lost some money…where to next? it’s time to hit up Vegas’ legendary pool party scene. This all Depends on what time of year you visit Las Vegas, one of the pleasures of staying along the Strip is spending time soaking in the summer sun poolside. Most of the well known hotels offer cabanas, entertainment, lots of bars, and a host of other activities to keep your mind off the heat.
Okay so we are going to be a tourist for a mintue, but after a day of drinking, you need some food head over to Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar, it’s so over-the-top
Once you’ve had a bite to eat, you can get ready for a shopping experience that’ll blow your mind! Vegas is home to all kinds of shopping, so whether you’re into high-end fashion or hipster thrift, you will always find something in Vegas. Also Caesar’s Forum Shops is connected to the hotel and offers ancient Roman streets, talking statues, exotic fish aquariums, top dining experiences and a nice variety of popular boutiques and stores
Once you’ve built up a bit of an appetite, head to the Galleria Mall in Henderson and grab a table at Gen Korean BBQ House…Now your ready to hit the town,
If you’re into party scene, then try one of Vegas’ newer clubs, then hit up Omnia! This place has one of the best views of the strip! Regular headliners include Calvin Harris, etc.
If your not done, then head to the Peppermill, you willeave Vegas with a good story.
Today is all about grabbing quick bites so that you can keep your Vegas experience moving. After a good night’s rest, some water and a few Advil later, start the day off at the Donut Bar, you need this to absorb all of that alcohol from the night before. I love donuts, so this place is a must.
Now its time to just wander the strip for a bit. This is home to numerous casinos, alluring you with their offer of free refreshments and the chance to press your luck. Don’t miss out on the Fountains of Bellagio, which go off on a synchronized “dance” to music every half hour and are absolutely free to anyone passing by. Even though it is a bit touristy if you ask me.
After you get the strip out of your system, its time for some shopping. For me, Las Vegas has some of the best shopping in the US! I hope you didn’t lose all of your money at the casino or shopping the day before.
I have to say the coolest thing is the Pinball Hall of Fame, which is a museum for pinball machines, it’s pretty cool. It brings on the nostalgic feel. After all of that, you need food, Try Pop Up Pizza, Pizza Rock or if you want burgers, try Burger Bar, FukuBurger or Heart Attack Grill.
On your last day I suggest going to the spa. I’m not one for spa’s but if thats your jam, go for it. Indulge in a relaxing spa treatment at the Sahra Spa & Hammam.This place will leave feeling with senses awakened and at peace. Your muscles will be sore from walking and dancing and will put your soul at rest for the long slog home.
The stories and memories…well, they have to stay in Vegas.
