LOM’s Guide To Las Vegas

If you’re going to Las Vegas anytime soon, have I got some tips for you! Last week, R & I, went on a road trip to Las Vegas for the 5th time. As we have been there so many times now, I feel that I know my way around and that I’ve got a few trips & tricks.

Where to stay?

It all depends on your budget of course, but if you book in advance you can snag some pretty good deals. Try to go in the middle of the week, as the room prices go up from Friday to Sunday. A couple of good and affordable hotels are MGM & New York New York. Both have great renovated rooms, huge casinos, entertainment, restaurants, bars & more.

What to wear?

Las Vegas can get a little chilly in the winter, so pack a light jacket if you’re going between November & February. You’re gonna walk a lot, and I mean a lot a lot!!! The strip might look small but it’s actually pretty stretched out. All the hotels / casinos are pretty huge, so crossing from one to another is usually a decent walk. Pack some comfy shoes, running shoes preferably, and some flats to change in to if you’re wearing heels at night.

What to eat?

There are tons of options for every budget. If you’re budget allows, you should visit the Bellagio buffet, it’s one of the best in Las Vegas. If you’re a burger fan, you’re gonna die for Gordon Ramsey Burgr restaurant. It serves the best burgers ever, for real! They’re juicy, delicious and just prefect. The jalapeno poppers are a must. For those with a sweet tooth, Bouchon Bakery in the Venetian has the biggest and tastiest macarons in town. There’s also Buddy’s bakery there (from cake boss), whose cannolis aren’t amazing but the cheesecake will keep you coming back.

What to do?

They make the most refreshing bellinis and they almost always have 2 for 1 drink offers going. If you want some serious clubbing, Hakkasan at the MGM usually has an amazing line up with the biggest performers. During the day, there’s a few things you can do besides drinking and lounging at the pool (weather permitting). Try tasting Coca Cola’s from around the world at Coca Cola World. You can also visit the M&M’s World next door to sample some chocolate. For fashion lovers there’s a few fashion malls to try. The Fashion Forum at Caesar’s palace, Crystals at Aria and  the Fashion Show, or you can drive to the nearby fashion outlets. There’s a couple Sephora branches, but the biggest and most beautiful one is at the Venetian. If you’re a brave one and like roller coasters, than the roller coaster in New York New York is for you. Personally, I wouldn’t dare! Also don’t miss the chance to spot some real live flamingos at the Flamingo Hotel & casino.

    Fun! That burger seriously has me salivating.
    I went to Vegas when I was 21 with my exes family. It was so boring. I definitely want to go back and do the shopping, fancy lounges and stay somewhere decent!

    Also MnM world.. so fun to go and just do free samples. I act all stealth and coy, but they totally know why I’m there.

      Hahaha good for you! I couldn’t leave without a bag full of MnMs, too tempting!

      You should definitely give Vegas another try, it so much fun, for a short period though 🙂

      XoXo,
