Curator’s statement

Las Vegas is the perfect getaway for any occasion. You can come multiple times a year and make it a different experience each time. Notoriously known as sin city, this city also has so much more to offer. From some of the best culinary experiences in the country to unlimited entertainment, Las Vegas has something for everyone! The best part is, it's only a short drive to the strip once you land!

Things to do in Las Vegas, Nevada

Best of Las Vegas: A Travel Guide for Every Traveler - Things to do

For the Party-goers:

All the hotels recommended are within walking distance to a club or two. Clubs are typically easily free for a group of girls and likely cheaper for guys at a 1:1 ratio. Reach out to me if you want to get discounted group rates across various clubs. The most popular clubs include XS at Wynn, Zouk at Resorts World, Marquee at Cosmopolitan, and Omnia at Caesar's Palace. If you're going during pool season, I highly recommend checking out a day club or night swim! A more casual way to party with your friends!

For the Casual-goers:

There's so much to do in Las Vegas and it's easy to get overwhelmed! My recommendation is to plan out each day with some flexibility to walk around the strip and explore. There are an enormous amount of shows, ranging from comedy to circus and concerts. Tickets are usually cheaper at the ticket stands along the strip, so definitely check out what shows are going on while you're there! If you're into gambling, then you've gone to the right city! Minimums are usually slightly lower in the middle of the strip!

For the Adventurers:

If you're a thrill seeker, there are tons for you to do as well! A popular destination is The Strat, where you can find several heart-racing rides like Insanity, X-Scream, and The Big Shot. Circus Circus and New York New York are also great places to seek out some fun! There are also opportunities to take a helicopter ride around Las Vegas if you're up for it.

For a more relaxing experience, the Linq offers a 30 minute Ferris wheel ride! You can also Zip line at the Linq or through the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Vegas. For unique group activities, check out Area 15 for a variety of things to do. Research what you'd like to do ahead of time as it could feel very overwhelming if you wing the visit. Certain attractions require advance ticket purchase as well. A popular experience is the Omega Mart, where you go on a rabbit hole adventure from a "supermarket". You could also just grab a drink at the bar and enjoy the ambiance, go on a VR experience with your friends, or try an interactive tasting! 

For the Lovers:

In town with your special someone? For a romantic getaway, I highly recommend booking a luxury hotel as there are a ton of amenities to utilize for you and your partner. From couple massages to special treats or flower pedals in your room, your travel advisor can work with the hotel to make sure your trip is filled with romance! In between enjoying each other's company inside the resort, there are plenty of activities that could elevate your time together. Take a ride through Venetian on a private Gondola ride, which will transport you to Venice! Enjoy dinner by the Bellagio fountain or in the Eiffel Tower at Paris! You can also find some scenic bars like Skybar at Waldorf that can really set the mood for a wonderful evening.

Day Trips from Las Vegas

If you want to venture out some more, there are some quick stops you could check out!

Downtown Las Vegas is another popular spot for tourists. It's usually cheaper than the strip and the Fremont Street Experience is quite unique!

For the creatives that want to check out some popular areas for their instagram feed, Seven Magic Mountains and the Welcome to Las Vegas sign near the airport are great places to venture to. Venetian, Bellagio and Vdara are also popular places to find the perfect spot for a pic!

If you want to spend the day shopping, Las Vegas Premium Outlets is a great option!
