6 Tips on Planning a Trip to Vegas

Las Vegas is a dazzling desert oasis that beckons travellers around the globe with its neon lights, world-class entertainment and endless sightseeing options. In 2023 alone, over 40 million people visited Sin City, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. 

Whether you're a seasoned gambler, a thrill-seeker or simply craving a luxurious escape, Vegas caters to all tastes. Here are 6 essential tips you need to keep in mind when planning your ultimate Vegas adventure:

Where to Stay

Vegas boasts a staggering array of hotels, from budget-friendly options to opulent resorts. Consider your priorities from location and transport to amenities (think spas, pools, nightclub access) and budget. It’s entirely possible to book into your hotel and never leave it for your entire trip thanks to all the luxury features on offer.

Explore the Casinos

No trip to Vegas is complete without experiencing the casinos it’s known for. While table games like blackjack and poker hold a certain allure, slots offer a fun and accessible way to try your luck. 

Many casinos now feature innovative online mobile slots that allow you to play from your smartphone while enjoying food at the buffet or exploring the casino floor. Remember, responsible gambling is key - set a budget and stick to it.

Catch a Show

Vegas isn't just about gambling, it's a hub for exciting entertainment. From extravagant Cirque du Soleil productions to internationally renowned music residencies, there's something for every taste. Book your tickets in advance, especially if you’re looking to watch popular shows.

You can also visit immersive entertainment districts like AREA15 to view art installations and mind-altering spaces.

Partake in the Famous Nightlife

Las Vegas boasts some of the world’s best nightlife. Luxurious nightclubs with celebrity DJs, pulsing rooftop bars and themed dance clubs offer an unforgettable experience. Make sure that you dress to impress and prepare to dance the night away.

Enjoy the Food

Gone are the days of Vegas buffets being the only dining option. Today, the city is a culinary playground. Michelin-starred restaurants, renowned celebrity chef hotspots and global street food all tempt your taste buds. Don't miss the chance to experience the diverse culinary scene and sample iconic dishes with ties to the city such as the Shrimp Cocktail.

Exploring Further Afield

While Las Vegas offers endless entertainment within its city limits, consider venturing beyond the Strip. It can be tempting not to travel far from your hotel but don’t miss out on the chance to explore the dramatic landscapes of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, just a short drive away. 

For a historical and cultural experience, visit the Mob Museum downtown. Day trips to the Grand Canyon or Zion National Park provide a breathtaking escape from the neon lights.
