Las Vegas has earned its reputation as ‘Sin City’ but recently has taken great strides to making the city a playground for travelers of all ages. It is no longer only a place for bachelor parties and all night gambling. The hotels on the strip have a lot to offer to families, couples, and large groups of party goers.
Las Vegas for the Family? No, this is not an oxymoron, it can actually be a delightfully entertaining experience. Aside from all the casino’s, Las Vegas is full of activities for the entire family. If your family is into wildlife, check out the Wildlife Habitat at the Flamingo or bring your kids to the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage. If you want a thrill, there is a roller coaster at New York, New York or try out the dune buggies at Nellis Dunes.
Romance in Las Vegas? Why not? Take your partner to one of the numerous casino shows. Celine Dion has been a fan favourite for years and never disappoints the crowd. Cirque de Soleil is also a ‘must see’ show that incorporates mystical worlds and spectacular acrobatics. Never been to Venice? Well check out the closest thing, take a gondola ride at the Venetian!
Party Crowd and Large Groups
This is what Las Vegas has built its reputation upon. It is a great place to bring a large group for a bachelor or bachelorette party. The clubs are filled with like-minded people all of whom are there for a good time. The Clubs in Las Vegas feature the hottest DJ’s in the world with regular performances from Calvin Harris, David Guetta, and more. A trip to the night club in Las Vegas does not come without a price. If you want to get bottle service at a table (to keep yourself away from the thousands of people attending the party), expect to pay a minimum of $2000-$3000 for your group of 8-10 people.
WARNING: Be attentive while you are at the club, especially if you are carrying large amounts of cash. There are men and women who comb the club for unsuspecting, inebriated clubbers who invited them into their booths to party. Once in your booth, they will bump into you and steal your money. Due to the large crowds, these professional pick-pocketers go unnoticed until the end of the night when its time to pay the bill.
TIP: Try to arrange your club visit with a promoter before you arrive at the club. Prepay the bill with a credit card so you are not needed to carry upwards of $3000 on your person while having a few drinks.
