It’s been quite a while since this trip, but it’s never too late to reminisce on how to do big cities in a weekend!
If you’re looking for a blog post on the best casinos, best clubs or best places to buy fancy cigs, quit reading – I’m not going to be much help on that front. If you’re looking for a weekend to see amazing architecture, see come cool sites and fit in a classic show, you’ve come to the right blog.
My eyes were wide for the architecture in Vegas – it was by far my favorite part. Stepping into a hotel felt like a new country; we hopped from New York, New York to Venice, Italy in a matter of minutes, tasting and seeing all that each unique resort had to offer. It’s nice to be able to try out a few different places to eat there instead of finding a more expensive sit-down restaurant.
Each hotel casino has basically the same setup, but it’s fun to move around and not stay in one place. We gambled a little, took advantage of the photo ops and walked through the touristy shops.
By far our favorite experience of the trip was going to a Cirque du Soleil show. There are different types of shows at every hotel, and this one was amazing. While everyone has a different preference and we can’t recommend one particular show as they change regularly, I think you’ll be blown away by anything they have to offer. Our show featured music and dances from Michael Jackson and we’re still raving about what a great time we had.
In my opinion, Vegas is the perfect weekend trip because it’s very walkable, not too far away (for most people in the U.S.) and a lot of the highlights you can fit into a couple days. Next time I visit, I’ll want to explore the mountains outside of Vegas – maybe even road trip to some nearby national parks!
Las Vegas Recommendations
Don’t Miss: Walking the entire strip, stopping in the resorts, catching a show.
If You Have Time: Gamble a little, drive around the city (outside of the strip).
Skip: Spending $60 just to get into a club. Why?
