Planning a trip to Vegas?
You don’t know how envious I am!
However, whether you’re travelling there for a stag or hen do or you’re heading there with a group of friends, here are some of my top tips for making this a trip to remember.
- Think About How You’re Getting There
First, you may have thought about how you’re getting there already, looking at flights from your nearby airport to Nevada.
But before you hit ‘book’, you might want to consider another option or two.
If you’re heading to Vegas on the trip of a lifetime, what better way to arrive than by private jet?
While this may seem excessive, you can often book empty-leg seats that are far cheaper than normal. And if there’s a group of you going, it may work out even cheaper than commercial flights.
Or, if you want to keep costs as low as possible, you could just take a helicopter ride while you’re there. This will add a touch of luxury to your break and is the best way to see the Grand Canyon.
- Find the Right Hotel
There are so many hotels in Las Vegas which can make it a bit of minefield when you’re trying to book something.
However, discuss with your fellow travellers what your priority is. Is it nightlife? Cost? Fine dining? Close proximity to certain attractions?
This should help you narrow down your search options.
And don’t forget. While Vegas is the place for a touch of extravagance and luxury, just how much time are you going to be spending in this room? If it’s not a lot, you could save yourself a lot of money with a budget hotel.
- Plan Your Itinerary But Don’t Be Too Strict
It’s always a good idea to do some research on what to do in Vegas before you go so you can create a list of things you want to do and see. But don’t restrict yourself too much with this.
Yes, there are advantages to booking shows and attractions in advance, but leave yourself enough time to do impulsive things – after all, that’s what Vegas is about, baby!
Just walking around Vegas on your first night there will give you a feel for the place, and you’re bound to see so much more than you’ve seen in your research. So dare to be brave and explore what’s on offer when you get there so you don’t feel as though you’re missing out on things because you’ve got a strict itinerary to adhere to.
However you get there, wherever you stay, and whatever you do – your trip to Las Vegas is one that’ll go down in history, trust me.
