I absolutely loved Las Vegas! I am not much of a gambler (I tend to spend all of my money on travel…) but I had a blast. I decided to split this post into three sections so various travel lengths. I listed some things I suggest doing if you have 24 hours, 48 hours, and 72 hours +. Hope this helps!
24 hours in Vegas
First thing is find a hotel on the strip. The strip is the main street in Vegas where most of the casino/tourist locations are located. The hotels are a bit pricier (but you can find deals!) but since you only have a short time in Vegas, you will make this up by saving on transportation costs, and making the most of your time!
My Pick: Planet Hollywood. Perfect location on the strip and great views.
Next – go casino hopping! Visit a couple of casinos – spend some money on a game or two and they bring you free drinks 🙂 (tips not included – make sure you tip).
Go see a show – there are lots of awesome hypnotist and variety shows n the strip!
Now – I am a person who loves my sleep, but I suggest staying up late, having fun and squeezing the most out of your short time in Vegas!
Bonus: If you have time there is also zip lining adventures!
48 hours in Vegas
Same as the first section – find a good hotel – unpack and head out! 🙂
Some things I suggest if you have some extra time: Go see Fremont Street (old Vegas) and spend some time in one of the MANY pools/hot tubs in Vegas – relax a little!
I would suggest spending one night on the strip and one night on Fremont Street. This way you get the best of both worlds!
72+ hours in Vegas
This is where the fun happens!
Same as the 48 hours – but I would also suggest doing some sight seeing outside of the city. This can include visiting the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, or even the Grand Canyon (spend at least a little while here at some point in your life!). I would suggest doing this on the second day there. So day one hang out on the strip, day two go adventuring, and day three Fremont Street. There is always so much to do!
