Las Vegas, in Nevada's Mojave Desert, is a resort city famed for its vibrant nightlife centered around 24-hour casinos and other entertainment options. Its main street and focal point is the Strip, just over 4 miles long. This boulevard is home to themed hotels with elaborate displays such as fountains synchronized to music as well as replicas of an Egyptian pyramid, the Venetian Grand Canal, and the Eiffel Tower, per Google.

WIN IT BIG

Stop at a Gambling 101 table and then play a few hands to win it all! Maybe it's your lucky night, try it out. 

FOOD MUST: BUFFET

Diets are not allowed in Vegas. Don't do it. Stuff your face at a hotel buffet.

ALL IN LIGHTS

See a show or entertainer, it's Vegas! The Beatles 'Love' is a personal favorite of mine.

You have to get sun while here, so visit between March and May or September and November. The weather is always nice and dry; regardless your inside gambling so forget the weather!

Tight outfits, high heels and long nights, Vegas is a party. Definitely worth the visit even if you don't gamble because there are many places to visit, to drink at and eat at throughout the days.

MY TRAVELS

I've ventured to Las Vegas a few times - with the boyfriend, with the family, and with a bachelorette trip - and each time is different. Boyfriend trip was all romantic with nice places to eat and gambling; the family trip was really fun with days at the pool and gambling; and the bachelorette trip was seeing shows, long nights and gambling. There is literally something for everyone in Vegas.

This city of lights is something that really drawls you in, you eat and drink and don't ever speak of what happened, but that's a good things. You will have far-out experiences that you can do in the average city. Vegas is fun and a place that everyone needs to try at least once. 

My favorite part of Vegas were the shows. There is something different every night and all the seats are good. With my SO, we asked the hotel for last minute tickets somewhere and they were able to hook us up without breaking the bank. If you are nice to hotel staff, they are nice to you; life lesson. Favorite shows from most to well-liked: (1) LOVE Beatles (2) O (3) Kaa (4) Penn & Teller and (5) Absinthe 

Not favorite part was the food. Went to some high rated buffets, paid top dollar, and the buffet was a waste. Sections ran out of food, items were cold or looked like they had been left out all day. It's a gamble sometimes so look at reviews. 

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. But not pictures, they end up everywhere.

Happy Travels,
