Are You a Vegas Virgin? Make Your First Time Memorable

Posted by Natasha Jervis on 30 June 2011

Where can you find blackjack, bright lights, Broadway shows and 5 star luxury themed hotels? Vegas Baby! Las Vegas, Nevada for adults is like Disneyland for kids, a wonderland of games, food, entertainment and an array of colourful lights and glitter to distract you from reality. Las Vegas is an escape that is unique to vacation getaways to the tropics and various other parts of the world. When visitors head to Las Vegas they feel like they are a kid in a candy shop with a playground at their fingertips.

If it is your first time planning a vacation to Las Vegas and you have never felt the magical vibe of the strip, you have another thing coming. Be prepared for anything as it is full of surprises. While we hope you don’t experience what the guys did in the movie ‘The Hangover’ and have to deal with Tyson, starved tigers and a loss of memory about the previous nights events, we guarantee a trip to Las Vegas won’t be your last.

Known as the gambling capital of the world, Las Vegas is not only for high rollers, card sharks and Broadway lovers. Vegas is for everyone to enjoy and numerous families travel to this exciting destination every year. Maybe it’s because the kids can stay occupied all day at Adventuredome or GameWorks while the adults go out to play. Sounds like a good deal right?

When is the best time to visit Las Vegas? Anytime! Unless you are seeking a wallet-friendly time to visit the bright lights of Las Vegas. If so, avoid booking your vacation from March to May and from September to November. Of course, it’s the best time to be there as it’s like ‘Spring Break’ for adults minus the wet t-shirts and screaming teens.

Not a gambler? No problem. You don’t have to ‘let ‘em roll’ when in Vegas. The themed resorts have extraordinary attractions that can keep you and your buddies, kids or special someone busy for hours. A gondola ride at the Venetian will take you to romantic Venice, Italy within seconds, while a visit to Treasure Island takes you to a place where pirates battle over gold in swordfights. Shiver me timbers!

There is no stopping to what you can see, do and where you can play in Vegas. There are a variety of gourmet restaurants to enjoy an elegant dining experience or if you are counting your pennies, loads of budget buffets to take advantage of. Just make sure you take a look at the buffet before you throw tons of food on your plate. Some of the top Las Vegas buffets along the strip are fabulous and quite attractive while some could make your stomach turn against you. Remember, when the price looks too good to be true, it probably isn’t too good.

There are also tons of world-class Broadway shows to enjoy like The Lion King and Canada's world-famous recording artist Celine Dion. There is a vast array of free attractions to enjoy as well. Yes! FREE! Visit the Mirage’s bursting volcano and Rainforest exhibit, stand in awe of the Bellagio's musical dancing fountains, indulge in chocolate tastings at the Ethel M Chocolate Factory or visit the Lion Habitat at the MGM Grand.

Whatever you seek in Las Vegas, you’ll find it or IT will find you.
