While chilling out in the Maltese sun and having a break from long distance travelling, we are still keeping ourselves busy preparing for the upcoming trips. We are very excited as we have so many plans for this autumn and the whole of next year! I’d like to share with you some information about one of the destinations which we consider as part of our 2013-2014 travel adventure. Here we go!
For one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world, Las Vegas is generally recognized by some pretty vague ideas: gambling, bright lights, packed night clubs, and things like that. In reality though, a Vegas vacation has something for everybody beneath the surface. So here are 5 things to see and do that can make your Vegas vacation everything you want in a top destination.
1. Be A Tourist
Most people prefer to look for unique vacation destinations where “touristy” activities can take a back seat. But in Vegas, it’s best to take a day or so to be a tourist by exploring the iconic sites. Watch the Bellagio fountains, ride the New York, New York roller coaster, and stroll through casino floors. As long as these things don’t comprise your entire trip, they’re actually quite a bit of fun.
2. Catch A Show
Vegas is known for world-class entertainment, so it’s absolutely vital to catch a performance or two. From concert events, to boxing matches, comedy acts, plays, and unique shows like Cirque du Soleil and Blue Man Group, the Vegas resorts are a gathering ground for some of the most impressive spectacles on stage.
3. Spend Time Poolside
The Vegas pools may actually be underrated if anything. Each resort has its own pools with unique designs, and often specific day parties and events that can be incredibly fun. One to be sure you check out is the ARIA “Liquid” Day Club & Lounge, where guests can party in true VIP fashion. The pool is set aside on its own, with its own DJs, bar, and day cabanas.
4. Enjoy The Restaurants
Often ignored among the casinos and night clubs is the fact that Las Vegas has dozens of restaurants owned and operated by world-renowned chefs. Whether it’s a quick stop at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, a night out at Joel Rubuchon’s French restaurant, or one of a variety of other impressive options, the dining is a crucial part of any Vegas trip.
5. Hit The Bars
Finally, check out some of the famous bars in Las Vegas. The nightclubs are famous on their own, but starting a night at one of the unique bars can actually be a more enjoyable experience. Check out Mandalay Bay’s Minus 5 bar, where the temperature is always – 5 degrees and everything from glasses to table tops is made of ice (and where customers are given fur coats and gloves to wear). Or, take in Rhumbar at the Mirage, a bar that brings the best of the Caribbean islands into a chic, all-white bar with an outdoor patio packed with live music and activity.
Hope this post has whetted your appetite for this fabulous destination. I wish you amazing holidays and I hope that I’ll be able to report back from Las Vegas sometime soon!
