We know you already have a life, but it’s time to get… your… life.

Having a life entails surviving your day-to-day routine.

Getting your life goes beyond mere survival. It’s thriving while others are aspiring. It’s escaping the daily grind. It’s making every vacation day count. It’s you hitting the jackpot while you’re away so you don’t have to return to that job that has you contemplating the plot line from “Horrible Bosses.” But you can’t win life-changing money in a remote hut on beautiful, Bora Bora. You need a Las Vegas vacation.

It’s time to try your luck at a Sin City sabbatical that could have you squealing “This is the life!” up and down the Strip — for all these reasons.

1. You Can get “Married AF”

Vegas is for lovers who don’t just want to get hitched — they want to get very, very married. Home to the most unique wedding venues, this entertainment capital can give you a wedding ceremony committed to over-the-top craziness. You’ve fallen madly in love. It’s okay to have nuptials that go a little nutty and a honeymoon unhinged.

2. or — You can find love in this Club

If you’re single and not ready to commingle, go where falling in love at a surface level is not only welcomed, it’s encouraged. OMNIA Nightclub in Caesars Palace encircles you with dynamic LED chandelier lights that were made for gawking and world-renowned DJ setlists that don’t let up for talking. Who needs spoken word bellowed over beats when Martin Garrix spinning “In The Name of Love” calls for conversations that can only happen with the hips.

3. You can get a little vintage with your vegas

Get your classic Las Vegas fix where traditional meets on-trend at the famed corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road. Ushering in iconic cool before the Strip was the electric stroll you take today, the Flamingo Las Vegas is where Sin City began. Surely, you’ve got to make it one of your stops. Party at the Go Pool. Snap up some shots at the Wildlife Habitat. See “Donny & Marie” and other “Legends in Concert.” Whatever you do, be sure to make your way to the resort that doesn’t reinvent — it trendsets.

4. or — You Can Always Have Paris

“Où est…?” means “Where is…?,” but you won’t get lost in French-to-English translation if you make your way to Paris Las Vegas — a destination that lets you enjoy a little Parisian flair without the language barrier. Once you’ve made your way to our fanciful Paris on the Strip, you must visit Mon Ami Gabi and be transported to a bistro that feels surrounded by the gourmet pastry shops, chocolatiers and upscale boutiques of the illustrious City of Lights. There, you can drink in more than 80 boutique French wine varietals or decide upon a café au lait that delights even the most discernible of sippers.

5. You can enjoy some deep cuts with your Grilled cuts

At Virgil’s Real Barbecue they only smoke the good stuff. Their savory search for the best BBQ nationwide rounded up some Memphis pork ribs and chicken, a good helping of Carolina pulled pork and Texas beef brisket by the pound to serve up in NYC’s Time Square, Atlantis, Bahamas and now Las Vegas at The LINQ Hotel & Casino. Locations may be limited, but the flavorful meat is limitless. And because a feast like this needs an anthem, a side of live entertainment comes along with four bars, three outdoor patios and all the fixings you can stand.

6. Or — You can Nosh on some Fish & Chips made Posh

Hey mate. Vegas got you feeling a little gobsmacked? Are you reeling and a bit knackered? Is your travel fund getting a bit dodgy? Well, we have brilliant solution. Get a bit indulgent with some yummy, scrummy fish and chips without going skint. Sometimes prepared by the Michelin-starred chef himself, Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips at The LINQ Hotel & Casino will have you feeling right ace again. Cheers to picking up London-style when Vegas is calling. Here you don’t answer with a chin-wag, you respond with hand-cut cod filets and crispy chips.

7. YOu can Sip at the slots

Pull the lever as you drink slowly. Press a few buttons, then toss one back. Max your bet with your trigger finger, but keep your drink-designated digits cocktail ready. You see, there’s an art to playing the slots and looking good while doing so. Some are there just to play. Others are serving winning looks on the house.

8. or — you can take it to the tables

Step away from killing it at the slots to find The Cromwell‘s 40,000-square-foot casino floor also includes in-demand table games like blackjack, craps, baccarat and three card poker. Don’t be daunted by the dice-rolling, card-twirling pros. If you’ve got five minutes, you’re in luck because it only takes four to learn how to play each and make baccarat, craps, blackjack and three card poker your favorite Las Vegas pastimes.

9. You can get up close & Personal with a Backstreet boy

A post shared by Lindsey Krol (@lkrol) on

Seeing the Backstreet Boys this summer will be more than a good show full of iconic singles – it will be a “Larger Than Life” event. Score some great seats inside The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino and you may be sharing intimate moments like this with AJ McLean, Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough or Kevin Richardson. And if you’re willing to spend just a wee bit more on some ’90s nostalgia, you can meet all five heartthrobs before the show, sit center stage at a VIP Table surrounded by up to six friends, receive an autographed special edition Backstreet Boys poster and so much more.

10. Or — You Can catch britney spears Bringing it

A post shared by Farah 🌴 (@byefarah) on

Bye bye Brit, Brit. Pop’s princess has announced the final shows of her “Britney: Piece of Me” residency at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood so you’ll definitely want to get front and center to witness the Queen B’s best before she leaves Las Vegas. “Saying goodbye to this show is going to be SO hard,” the Sin City songstress said in an Instagram post. But seeing her beginning Sept. 3 and ending Dec. 31 is SO easy if you get your tickets now.

11. YOU CAN leave Las Vegas with A saucy SOUVENIR

Shop so hard and laugh even harder at this tongue-in-cheek boutique located in the Cromwell. They don’t do “I love Vegas” t-shirts. They do “Everything hurts and I’m dying,” tank tops. This is where you gather gifts for your most audacious of friends when you’re not buying for your brazen and brash (or easily excitable) self.

12. Or — You can take off with your hands full

A post shared by Kennedy Marie (@kennedym.j) on

When you stop barely getting by and starting getting your life, a jackpot could be in the cards. Winnings of all kinds are available to you in this city made cheap by absconding with more cash than you came with. Start your streak of luck under the neon lights of Las Vegas and you may just leave revitalized by a whopping windfall.
