Things To Do In Las Vegas
Book a Room in Las Vegas, which is one of the greatest places to visit, not only in the US but in the entire world. Vegas stands alone, like an island oasis cut off from the real world by miles of desert, with its own unique culture, entertainment, and the simple and occasionally risky pursuit of a fun break from the ordinary. Las Vegas is truly a place that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime to take in the amazing sites, the great shows, entertainment, shopping, nightlife, and the world famous casinos.
Discount Hotel Rooms in Las Vegas
There is a dizzying variety of hotel, motels, and rooms available in Las Vegas so it is a good idea to get help to book a room in Las Vegas. Most of the casinos on the strip have hotels attached, all the way from the 6000+ rooms at the MGM Grand to the 152 room boutique Casino Royale. Of course, where you stay will likely depend upon how much you want to spend and what your plans are when you are in Las Vegas. Hotel rooms at the casinos generally tend to be reasonably priced, and occasionally even downright cheap. The idea behind discounted Las Vegas hotel rooms is that the hotels want to entice you to stay with them in Las Vegas, planning to recoup their money from you downstairs in their own casino.
But there should be several other considerations when you want to book a room in Las Vegas. Does the hotel have a swimming pool to cool off in during the afternoon heat, or a nightclub attached for you to have some extra fun, such as LAX at the Luxor or The Bank at the Bellagio. What is the food and room service situation like? Las Vegas is a 24-hour city with no respect for the general laws of night and day. You could find yourself looking for lunch at 4am and heading to bed at midday. The casinos are actually designed to disorient you so you have no idea what time of day it is and you’ll be more likely to extend your time in spending and gambling mode.
Las Vegas Hotel Specials and Amenities
Once you Book a Room in Las Vegas, take time to see what your resort or hotel has to offer in the way of special deals, show tickets, entertainment price reductions, and other included amenities for you to get the most out of your stay. Your hotel may well be hosting a great star during your stay and offer you tickets to the show for free or at a reduced rate. Las Vegas hotels may also be willing to offer you discounts on some of the attractions and entertainment venues within the resort, around the strip, and even outside the city of Las Vegas. Hotels occasionally arrange day trips away from Las Vegas for you to see some of the other sites of Nevada, neighboring California, or Arizona.
When you book a room in Las Vegas, it’s far more than just a hotel room to sleep in as with hotels in other cities. You could easily spend your entire time in Las Vegas at one resort, just visiting its casinos, pools, restaurants, attractions and shows, and still have a great time. Choosing the right room to book in Las Vegas is of paramount importance to your overall Vegas experience and enjoyment.
I Booked A Room in Vegas, So Now What?
Well… everything. There is so much to do in Las Vegas that you really need to prepare your trip in well in advance to get the most out of the city and get to do all the things on your list. There are three main activities people like do on a holiday to Las Vegas; gambling, shopping, and nightlife.
First On The List, Hit The Casinos!
Casinos are what Las Vegas is really famous for and why it exists out there in the middle of the desert. Las Vegas casinos can suck up both your time and your money so be careful when you enter those wallet sticky halls. There is a game for everyone in Las Vegas, whether you want to hit the tables for some Blackjack or Poker and rub shoulders with the high rollers (if you have the cash…) or just sit down in front of the slots for an hour or two and try your luck there. There are also the sports betting halls if you’ve got the skill or desire to wager on your favorite team or even want to just try your luck with your local football team.
Enjoy Gambling as a Form of Entertainment
Be smart and plan ahead before you gamble your hard earned money. A few simple rules and then you can enjoy the gambling that Las Vegas has to offer and still come home with your wallet intact (maybe even a bit fatter if you’re truly lucky). One good rule to consider is to plan out in advance how much you are willing to risk or wager? Once this amount is gone, don’t hit the ATM for more. Budget your time and your money so you can enjoy gambling as a form of entertainment. And if you come away from a casino as a big winner, it’s safer to have decided in advance how you’ll handle the windfall. Maybe you want to turn over half or more to a friend or spouse while you enjoy the rest and try to grow your stake bigger. Maybe you want to cut and run and save the windfall for another trip. Decide in advance.
The most important tip to remember is to make some set of decisions about your finances for gambling in advance, before you become emotionally involved in the bright lights, long hours, fun, and excitement of the Las Vegas experience. Casino’s count on you to make bad decisions once you’re engaged in the excitement of the city. Look around you; it’s the way this wonderful city was built. Far more money is left behind than ever leaves the city. If you have a plan in advance you’ll be the exception to the Las Vegas house rule, and just maybe come away with a free vacation so that you can visit again, this time all expenses paid by your last trip to Las Vegas!
There’s more than just Casinos in Las Vegas
If the casinos aren’t you thing or you just want to get away from them for a while, then there is plenty more to do in Las Vegas. The city is full of sights that have to be seen to be believed. You can take a gondola ride through the canals built into The Venetian Hotel and shop along the Grand Canal Shoppes. And if you want to stay in Europe, then head to Paris… Las Vegas and see the Eiffel Tower and dine there. Most casinos have some spectacle awaiting you and drawing you in. The Bellagio fountains are one such attraction and the crowds flock to get a glimpse of the spectacular water shows every day. Other sights for you to enjoy are the shark reef aquarium, the Fremont street experience and the New York New York rollercoaster, twisting and turning in and out of the eponymous hotel and casino and their model of the Statue of Liberty.
Sin City Nightlife and Entertainment
If you are looking for nightlife and entertainment then a visit to one of the many nightly shows is a must. In Las Vegas it’s usually best to book a show in advance to guarantee the best seats. You’ll be able to find some of the world’s greatest performers nightly in Las Vegas. There are the Troupes that have made themselves household names through their Las Vegas shows such as Cirque de Soleil. Or you can see the great names of Vegas such as Celine Dion at Caesar’s Palace or the new names of Las Vegas like Britney Spears at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
Consider a Road Trip Outside of Las Vegas
If you book a room in Las Vegas for more than a couple of days, you should definitely consider heading further from the city for at least a day to see the desert sites outside of Las Vegas city limits. Lake Mead is the nearest recreation area and a great place to cool off with its beautiful lake, sandy beaches, and plush vegetation. You can go waterskiing, boating, or fishing on the lake, or just go visit one of the seven wonders of the industrial world, the Hoover Dam. If you want to venture further out you can head west towards Death Valley in California or east towards the wonderful Grand Canyon over the border in Arizona.
Whatever your holiday desires; Las Vegas will not disappoint. Be sure to read recent hotel guest reviews before you book a room in Las Vegas. That’ll ensure that you have a similar experience to previous guests and you’ll enjoy a great deal on a Las Vegas vacation to always remember!
