Las Vegas Guide

Las Vegas is a getaway destination for millions. It can definitely feel over done, so we're here to help you with some ideas  if you want a break from the non-stop party scene!

Pool Hopping (Thanks Groupon!)

With a quick download and search of "Pools" on the Groupon app, you can try different hotel pools at a low cost. Most of them also come with 1-2 drinks included in the price, which can cut your costs in half!


South Las Vegas Boulevard: The Polaroid Fotobar, Sprinkles & Quirky Shops

If you wander down South Las Vegas Boulevard (near the Flamingo), there is an awesome side street filled with quirky stores like Kitson, The Polaroid Fotobar (you can print your photos from your smartphone into polaroids for only $1!) & Sprinkles, a magical cupcake and ice cream land!

Bachelorette Ideas at The Cosmopolitan Hotel

Sometimes it can be nice to choose one destination if you're having a group celebration, like a bachelorette party. The Cosmopolitan Hotel is the perfect destination for a good time. Here's just a few things you can do at this swanky, modern hotel on the strip.

Drinks at the Cosmopolitan Chandelier Bar. Each floor has a secret drink, and maybe if you catch your server on a good night, they'll clue you in ;) **Tip: "The Verbana" is the second floor drink, which features a tequila drink with lemon verbena leaves and a "szechuan button", which is an edible flower that numbs/tingles your mouth - enhancing the flavor of the drink. Rose. Rabbit. Lie. An experimental show that combines cabaret, vaudeville and burlesque into one. **Tip: If you eat dinner at any of the restaurants within the Cosmopolitian, they will often give you a 50 % coupon for the show with your bill :) Rent the Runway Cosmopolitan: You can rent designer dresses for the night at MUCH cheaper than retail cost - they also offer bachelorette packages that include makeup and hairstyling for the full glamour experience before you go out. ** Tip: You can get special summer deals if you sign up ahead of time online, like 3 dresses for the price of 1, $25 off, etc.

 Free Activities

Be an audience member at a new CBS pilot show before it hits the air! (MGM Grand) Bellagio Conservatory (24hrs a day): A botanical garden of lush, colorful flowers and plants made into unique shapes with water ponds, birds, etc. It's especially pretty when the lights glow at night. ellagioness Fountains at Bellagio: While the fountain show itself is pretty, sometimes it's the view that makes the experience worth the wait. photo 2-19 Last, but not least. I always like to make sure I hit a few of these airport pit-stops before I leave :) How cute is this Benefit Cosmetics beauty kiosk?? Desktop1Have you done any of these things before?
