VEGAS TRAVEL GUIDE

When I first started going to Las Vegas, I was newly legal to drink and had a typical college-type experience. We day partied at pools & stayed out until five in the morning. Then, we woke up again the next day (& sometimes the next) to do it all again. I did a few girls trips to Vegas both just for fun or for bachelorette parties. One time I went I was actually there for quite a few days between two different girl group trips that overlapped. One just for fun with a smaller group & one for a bachelorette party with fifteen of my close sorority sisters. I left saying I didn’t want to come back for a long, long time.

A year or two later one of my girlfriends tried to get me to plan a weekend trip with her there & I said no because I just wasn’t eager to return. That all changed in March of 2018 when that same girlfriend & I decided we wanted to plan a weekend trip just for fun. We wanted to see a different, thirty-year-old side of Vegas. I had such an amazing time & came home telling my husband we HAD to plan a trip to Vegas together. We had both been several times, but never together. We were heading to Park City for our anniversary & I suggested adding two nights in Vegas before. Charles agreed & so today I’m sharing my updated Vegas travel guide with you all!

WHERE TO STAY

I’ve stayed at quite a few places during my trips to Vegas. There are so many good places & it really depends on where you’ll be spending your time! I recommend looking at what restaurants you’ll be going to & what else you’ll be doing & stay somewhere convenient to your plans.

I think my favorite is The Cosmopolitan. I’ve stayed there before & it’s the newest on the strip. Several of my favorite restaurants are inside & I’ve always had so much fun at their pool parties & nightclubs. It’s also in a super convenient location, or at least for me as I tend to end up over there every time I visit. My husband & I stayed here during our most recent visit. We got upgraded upon our arrival into a beautiful suite room! We loved it.

I also absolutely love the Wynn. It’s beautiful inside the rooms are really big & so nice. I love gambling here & there are so many amazing restaurants, bars, & shops here. Everything you could need is on site here!

I’ve also stayed at MGM, The Signature at the MGM, & Planet Hollywood. All were great! The Signature wasn’t as walkable as other locations, which is a con in my opinion. On a future trip I want to try the Palazzo, too. We spent some time inside there this time & I have other times shopping & eating. They did a recent remodel & the rooms look so nice. My husband has stayed at Aria and Caesar’s Palace & loved both of those, too. I’ve heard great things about Mandalay Bay & I also think the Bellagio is beautiful!

To sum up where to stay, just be on the strip for ease if that is where you’ll be spending most of your time. I think looking into where you’ll want to go for convenience is good & then of course, price.

WHERE TO EAT

Ohhhmyygoosh there are just so many amazing restaurants in Vegas. I’ll start by sharing where I ate my past few times. I’ll also include a few on my list for next time. One of the best things about Vegas is that SO many restaurants from around the world have opened locations here. Everything from Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami to Carbone in NYC have opened locations in Vegas so no matter what you’re craving, you’ll find something amazing to satisfy it.

  • Andrea’s: this is a small plate restaurant located in the Wynn. It is Asian inspired & was highly recommended to me multiple times.
  • Bardot: I had this cute spot in the Aria on my list for awhile. We were searching for brunch spots with drink specials & saw that they had $25 bottomless rosé, plus they had already been on my list for the food, & we were sold. It is so incredibly cute inside, too! We had truffle fries, mac & cheese, a salad, & rose all day.
  • Beauty & Essex: this is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. When I saw they had opened one at the Cosmo in Vegas I knew we had to try it. It’s just as good as the original & is such a great, fun atmosphere.
  • Bouchon: this is a spot that has been recommended to me a few times. It’s located in the Venetian and is great for brunch or lunch.
  • Costa di Mare: we ate here before a show once. It was located in the Wynn, which is where I was staying that time, so it was easy for us to just walk downstairs to it. The seafood is so fresh & is flown in from the Mediterranean four times per week. The menu is Mediterranean inspired & they had such delicious pasta. Highly recommend this delicious, fresh spot!
  • Katsuya: I went here on a big girls trip before going out one night. Its delicious Asian food & was a fun spot with a lively environment that kept us awake & entertained before hitting the town.
  • Lago: I’ve heard mixed reviews on this spot in the Bellagio, but most of them have been good! There are other locations around the US, but it’s an Italian restaurant that is open for lunch & dinner. It has views of the fountains, too!
  • Lavo: Another great spot for a big girls dinner before a night out on the town. It’s Italian & you can either order it up family style for the table or do your own thing. They have a fun, lively brunch on the weekends, too.
  • Overlook Café: This spot in the Cosmo is a hidden gem. We went here before going to the Marquee day club & I love it. It’s classic brunch food, but they have bottomless mimosas, which is the real selling point to me. It’s a great spot for big groups.
  • Pantry: this 24 hour restaurant at the Mirage is relaxed, but good. I had it on my recommendation list as a good brunch spot.
  • Rose, Rabbit, Lie: this may be my favorite restaurant in Vegas. 100% go here. It’s a live entertainment speakeasy meets restaurant with incredible food & a crazy fun atmosphere! It’d be great for a date night dinner (we did this), a couples dinner, or a girls dinner no matter what the size. I will for sure be going back here my next trip!
  • Scarpetta: this Italian spot in the Cosmo is one of the best on the strip. It’s definitely on my list for a future trip to Vegas. I’ve been to it in NYC & this one is just as delicious & fresh. The view is really pretty from here, too.
  • Sugarcane: a little spot in the Venetian, recommended to me for their brunch food ant the $25 bottomless mimosas. The mimosas were a great price, but the atmosphere & service were not. The server(s) were overbearing & under-informed which honestly ruined the meal. Plus, it’s dark which we didn’t love for day time & as many restaurants in The Venetian do, it feels like you’re in a weird indoor strip mall. Skip this spot & find bottomless mimosas elsewhere.
  • Sugarfactory: this is one of those fun spots that may be more about the atmosphere than the food, but even that is still pretty good. We went for a girl’s dinner & it was a fun spot!
  • Tao: I’ve been to Tao in the Venetian multiple times & feel like it’s a classic Vegas dinner spot. Its always a fun atmosphere & the food is good! I love sushi, fried rice, & any of the noodles from Tao. If you plan on going out there that night it’s a great spot to go for dinner before because it’s so convenient to just go upstairs!
  • Yard Bird: we ate here for brunch & it was oh so good. It’s located in the Palazzo. It’s all the greasy hungover type food you need in your life after a night out in Vegas. I loved the mac & cheese & a fried green tomato sandwich with pimento cheese.

Other places in Vegas on my to eat list: Bazaar Meat, Carbone, Chicas, Estiatorio Milos, Jean-Georges Steakhouse, Joël Robuchon’s Restaurant, Joe’s Stone Crab, Kabuto, Le Cirque, Momofuku, NoMad Bar, Once, Picasso, Raku, Restaurant Guy Savoy, Sadelle’s, The Black Sheep, & Twist.

WHERE TO DRINK

Honestly, you can drink anywhere in Vegas. I didn’t want to list out too many in Vegas travel guide, because it honestly is so dependent on where you’re going & what you’re doing, but a few of my favorite spots are below for you. I always hit up the first two when visiting Vegas!

  • Champagne Bar: this bar at the Cosmo is a must. Sit on the 2nd level & grab the Alice & Wonderland themed drink– it’s my favorite. I love this bar any time, but it’s my favorite when all dressed up before/after dinner!
  • Parasol Down: this cute little spot in the Wynn is perfect for a pre-dinner cocktail and is oh so cute.
  • The Dorsey: this is a speakeasy looking bar that is in the Palazzo. They are known for craft cocktails and a fun atmosphere.
  • Holstein’s: this place serves up decadent adult milkshakes. It’s located in the Cosmo and was a casual little place to stop in and relax, grab an adult milkshake and some French fries for a mid-afternoon snack.

Vegas is one of those fabulous cities where you can walk around with a drink in hand, so you’ll find places all over the strip where you can grab a fun cocktail!

WHAT TO DO

There are seriously endless things to do in Las Vegas, which is one of the many reasons I love it. I’m rounding up a few of my favorites for my Vegas travel guide below.

  • Gamble: I’m a roulette girl, but tend to max out at the $15 minimum tables. We played on those this past time at the Wynn, but for cheaper tables head to Mirage or the Flamingo. I also love playing a little black jack.
  • Eat: As you can tell from the list of spots above, Vegas has some amazing restaurants.
  • Drink: I mean… it’s what you do in Vegas. You can walk around with drinks, grab them while you gamble, or go to any of the fun spots I listed above.
  • Dance: If you like to go out, Vegas has some of the best clubs in the country. They are so over the top and can be really run. As a girl, it’s fairly easy to find a promoter who will hook you up with a table and bottles. A few of my favorites have been: Marquee, Tao, XS, Hyde, and The Bank. Really though, I think its all about where you can get the best hook up. I’ve never not had a good time and love that there is always a new one opening and being named the latest and greatest!
  • Spa: The spas in Vegas are supposed to be some of the best. I haven’t prioritized that yet, but I guarantee you I will on one of my next visits. Vegas in your 30 sure takes a toll a lot more than it did seven or eight years ago.
  • Pool Party: similar to going out to dance at night, the pool scene in Vegas is oh so unique. I’ve always loved going to Marquee Dayclub, Encore Beach Club,
  • Shows: I saw O! at the Bellagio most recently, but I’ve also seen Ka before, too. There are so many amazing concerts happening in Vegas always, too.
  • People watch: I can’t get enough of all the people in Vegas. It’s so entertaining to me! Find a bar or restaurant with an outside area or a good view of a high traffic zone and you’ll for sure be entertained.
  • Vegas Sign: this trip was actually the first time I had gone to see the Vegas sign because we landed super early in the morning. I’d recommend going first thing, because a line forms by the end of it and it will be really crowded later in the day.
  • Neon Mueseum: This is such a fun place to visit! It’s basically a ‘grave yard’ where all the old neon signs from Vegas are preserved & on display for you to see! They have a strict no camera policy & only iPhone photography is allowed here.
