A trip to Sin City is a must for all travelers. With its bright lights, luxurious hotels, extravagant casinos and exciting attractions, the home of one the eighth wonders of the world is a destination that has something to suit everyone’s needs. Here are some top tips for your trip to Las Vegas…
Plan Your Stay
When you get to Las Vegas, the enormity of the place can seem very overwhelming. Planning where you would like to go and what you’d like to see at the beginning of your trip is vital to getting the most out of your stay. First step: scope out your own hotel. Second step: Get yourself on a Hop-On Hop-Off Bus. This will allow you to see what attractions you’d like to see the most.
You Don’t Need To Buy Drinks
If you find yourself in a Casino and feel the urge to go and buy you and your friends some drinks to keep you going…don’t! The Casinos in Las Vegas offer their customers free drinks to entice their customers to keep up their gambling. So instead of going up to the bar, wait for the waitress to come to you. Bargain. Check out the cocktail menu while you wait…
Avoid Peak Dinner Times
Las Vegas prides itself on feeding its visitors well, and Buffets and restaurants can get extremely busy. If you can, it is best to avoid peak dinner times, as you’ll waste hours of your trip standing in line! The peak times are between 6 and 8 pm, so if you can, try to aim to have dinner between 5-5:30 pm and 8:30-9pm.
What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas
Sin City is a place where anything can happen, and it’s best to keep to this motto throughout your stay and be open to experiencing as much as possible….within reason, of course. It’s best to go with the flow in Vegas. If you’re not much of a party-animal and find yourself in one of the best clubs in Vegas…just go with it. If you’re not much of a gambler and find yourself in a casino…roll with it.
Sign up to Player’s clubs
Signing up for a players club in Las Vegas isn’t all about gambling. Sure…earning points can result in freebies and gifts, but just having the card will benefit your whole trip. These cards can give your discount in restaurants, resorts, shows, attractions and so much more.
Bring sturdy shoes and use alternative transport
The Las Vegas strip is a lot longer than it appears…and would take a good few hours to walk the four miles if that’s what you wanted to do. If you’re not so keen on walking, most casinos have walkways between them, and there is also the Las Vegas Monorail which will take you where you want to go a lot quicker.
Visit the main attractions
The excitement of the casinos, shopping, and extravagant hotels can take up a lot of your time. But it’s always good to find time to take in a little bit of culture. We’d recommend taking a trip up the 350m high Stratosphere Tower – complete with three rides on the top (not for the faint hearted) and visiting the Grand Canyon.
