Vegas is pretty full on. It’s a sleepless city, lit up at all hours. You practically need a Las Vegas survival guide to get through it!
Don’t worry – you’re not alone and we’re here to guide you! As a tourist hotspot, Vegas finds itself with thousands of tourists every year. From the brand new traveller to the Vegas regular, all kinds of people come through the city. For the rookies, it can be a bit overwhelming. It’s no wonder most people don’t normally know where to start with their vacation stories when they come back from Vegas.
Maybe that’s why they say “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.”
Regardless of whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned Vegas visitor, we’ve put together a Las Vegas Survival Guide so that you can be prepared for Vegas weekend.
1. Bring Snacks: I’m a huge snacker, so I might be a bit biased. But, bring snacks. Lots of them. Convenience stores aren’t cheap in Vegas, and we all know what happens when we leave the club in the early morning after a night of dancing.
Set aside a little section of your suitcase to bring some snacks. Almonds, granola bars, chips…whatever your flavour, bring it. If you’re coming back from the club and you want that 4am pizza? Well, I don’t blame you either. But, for all the other times that you’re out during the day and you get hungry, you’ll thank me later!
2. Choose Your Hotel Wisely: Well lucky for you, Exodus has a hand-picked travel portal with amazing partner hotels at discounted rates.
Going with the flow is good, but it’s always a good idea to plan your trip a bit beforehand. There’s so much to do in Vegas that you might be overwhelmed and then end up wasting time just deciding on what to do. Hint: That’s no fun!
I’d recommend doing a little research and seeing if there are any shows, activities, or places you’d like to check out beforehand. This way you can plan out your weekend and try to get the most out of it.
Another hint: We’ve been updating our Exodus blog with a bunch of stuff you can do while in Vegas. We’ve got you!
3. Transportation: Yes, there is one main strip in Vegas A very long strip. Seeing as it’s also hot, you may want to rethink your plan if you’re planning to walk everywhere. It’s 2017, and now we have things like Uber that make life somewhat easy. But, taking a taxi in Vegas also has its advantages. Taxis usually have coupon books hanging in the backseat – you can find coupons to shows, restaurants, and a lot more. During the day, there is also a monorail running along the main strip. So d worry – you have options!
4. The Bellagio Buffet: Everybody talks about the Bellagio Buffet, and rightly so. It is a food-lover’s paradise. No, it’s not the cheapest, which is why you need to eat smart. Don’t go into the buffet and fill up on soda, beer, or bread. You can get soda, beer, and bread everywhere. What you can’t get everywhere, is their special pot roast, shrimp, sushi, crab legs…the list goes on.
And make sure you save room for dessert.
