If you want to go in a vacation Las Vegas is the best place. Read this article to find out where you should go and the places you should visit.
Lounge by the pool and order bottle service
The party scene in Vegas isn’t what it used to be. Nightclubs remain closed, although a few (like Tao and XS) have reopened as lounges, proving you can still charge for bottle service without covering the cost of a big-name DJ. Pool parties followed a similar format and are gearing up to do the same this year. The music is still pumping, although dancing is generally restricted to cabanas and daybeds, which require a reservation. The atmosphere is actually a welcome change of pace at venues like Wet Republic, Liquid, Marquee, and Encore Beach Club, which are all expected to reopen when the weather warms up—if not sooner. Just remember to wear a mask when not in the water. (Watch the tanlines.)
Take a tour of Vegas history with the Pioneer Trail
Want to play tourist, but avoid the crowds? Explore the history of Las Vegas at your own pace with the Pioneer Trail. It’s an interactive map that guides participants through historical sites that often go unnoticed in everyday life. Go for a drive and check out the former home of casino magnate Benny Binion or the Old Mormon Fort—a weird museum in its own right. Some sites are spooky, like the Woodlawn Cemetery. Some are quirky, like an old home known as “The Castle.” No matter where you go, the tour is free.
Take a walking food tour of Las Vegas
Lip Smacking Foodie Tours specializes in culinary walking tours in which guests are guided to top restaurants to sample signature dishes and drinks. No waits for tables, no lame restaurants, no retail stops—just the best of the best, all in one evening. The company’s spin-off concept, Finger Licking Foodie Tours, changes things up a bit. Guests can now take self-guided tours in a more casual and affordable format with the option of hitting the Aria, Fremont East, the Arts District, and Chinatown. The latter might not seem ideal for walking, but a rideshare is included in the price to help cover the distance between restaurants. Any dining experience that offers EDO, Lamaii, and Sparrow + Wolf in one night is hard to beat.
