Solo In Vegas: Take Alone Time To Another Level

Last updated: February 22, 2018 at 10:16 am. Posted by in Things to Do in Las Vegas. 2 Comments on Solo In Vegas: Take Alone Time To Another Level.

Let’s face it: At some point during your vacation, you want to ditch your friends. Or, you’re hearing more these days of people traveling alone. And honestly? That sounds appealing AF.

We’ve personally had friends who 1) sneaked away their crew to spend for a peace of mind or 2) took the big leap to fly to Sin City alone. Honestly? You can do “me time” anywhere. But in a city like ours, there are plenty of things to do in Vegas when you want that time all to yourself.

Traveling Alone in Vegas

Take a VR Adventure - Traveling alone in Vegas

Let’s get virtual: Playing video games is one thing, but escaping to another world is a whole new dimension.

At VR Adventures at The LINQ Promenade, you can be a superhero and fly over the Las Vegas Strip, all while counting as many hot air balloons as possible. And if you’re into haunted houses, enter if you dare. You’ll have to dodge a series of ghosts and zombies to get through! Or, you can do the Fly N’ Shoot, where you’ll soar through alps and bring down enemy drones. You can do all these and still have the rest of your day to do what you please.

Enjoy your me time relaxing poolside at The Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis

We don’t know about you, but we prefer our pool time solo. Be a pool princess (or prince) at the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis at Caesars Palace and choose from several different pool experiences. We personally like the quieter Neptune pool area. Best part of all? You can get a pool massage at your lounge chair or cabana.

Shop ’til you drop

Shopping is always fun solo. Plus, you can splurge on a pair of $900 heels or a $2,000 purse with no one trying to stop you. (We’re such a bad influence.) So what will it be? The latest and priciest Louis Vuitton purse? A killer pair of Jimmy Choos? Or you can score an entire week’s wardrobe at H&M.

If you just want to check out the breathtaking architecture at The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace (like in this photo), there’s absolutely nothing wrong with going up and down the escalator a few times.

Treat yourself to a spa day during your Vegas Vacation

Qua Baths & Spa

Just like escaping to the pool, we prefer our spa days solo. If you wanted to spend six hours here, it’s all good, baby. At Qua Baths & Spa inside Caesars Palace, that’s too easy. It has everything from a Roman bathing area (waterfalls and lounge chairs included) and even an Arctic Ice room where snow falls from the ceiling.

Treat yourself to flowers while you’re here with the decadent Everything is Coming Up Roses treatment. This treatment features a gentle full body exfoliation, rose oil scalp massage, anti-aging facial and cooling rose quartz massage ($325 weekdays; $335 weekends per person).

Spend the night at Drai's Nightclub at The Cromwell - Alone in Vegas tips

You might get a rush being solo amid hundreds of people. (We’re not lying when we say we’ve done this before – it’s quite the experience.) When you’re not dancing to the music of your favorite artist, you may just meet the mate of your dreams – or the night at least. Drai’s Nightclub at The Cromwell never has a shortage of peeps, so get your game on.

Traveling alone to Vegas means you don't have to share your Jackpot winnings

We’ll tell you this right now: It’s always more fun and better to do this solo. Why? You won’t have to share your winnings – duh! Plus, not every split has a happy ending (such as Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz in “What Happens In Vegas”). It’s all yours and yours alone to spend the way you want.

Treat yourself to a sweet treat from Sprinkles Cupcakes - Traveling to Vegas alone

Hands off that Sprinkles cupcake! It’s ours. Photo courtesy of Sprinkles Cupcakes.

Treat yourself to love in the form of a cute little cupcake. Located inside The LINQ Promenade, Sprinkles Cupcakes has every flavor imaginable, as well as limited edition flavors during holidays. If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, a cupcake is pretty much a soulmate. Maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but you may beg to differ when you try these tiny bites of heaven at Sprinkles.

If you’re really trying to make it a fast trip, Sprinkles even has a 24-hour ATM cupcake machine outside of its shop. That’s what we call service.

(P.S.: Doing a solo sweets mission means more for you, baby. Sharing is caring? Not today, fam!)

Forget the diet and go for more sweets at Amorino Gelato- Alone in Las Vegas

Amorino mi amor

Because we can’t just stop at cupcakes, right? Just a few steps over, Amorino at The LINQ Promenade serves up the tastiest gelato, most of which are vegan-friendly. Plus, how can you resist these gorgeous flower petals? You can order as many flavor petals as you desire, so the possibilities are endless.

Get a hotel room in Vegas and order room service all to yourself

Why share space with anyone else? You deserve it all in the Ultra Hip room at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Photo Courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

Get A Room 

You’ve heard the saying, “Get a room!” Well, you can tell them, “Well as a matter of fact, I will!” You can do whatever you want — take multiple selfies in front of the mirror, enjoy long baths, run around in your undies for all we care. The room is yours. Plus, you don’t have to worry about shoving your friend’s stuff off your bed or you can be as messy as you want to be. And you can order as much room service without having to share – always a bonus. We love the sleek new rooms at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino (pictured above).

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love discovering all of the city's vegan options, relaxing in hotel rooms and seeing the best concerts - no matter how big or small the crowd may be. Since I've ditched the rain in Seattle two decades ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas entertainment articles for Vegas.com, the LA Times and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me spending time with my husband, toddler and two pets.

    I’m 60 and handicapped. Can’t walk far. But strong and handsome and ready to party! Lol. Any recommendations on best place to stay? Last time I visited I got a cart that gave me mobility. I like to swim. Where’s the best pool? Love your blog. Full of great inf. Thanks. What is your favorite place to eat. Fancy. Not fancy. I don’t care?

    You sound like our kind of guy! We love the strong and handsome fellas who are ready to party. ? All of our hotels are handicap accessible, but since you asked about the best pool, I’d like to suggest a couple: Caesars Palace’s Garden of the Gods has seven different pool experiences to choose from – some are more of a party atmosphere, while others are more secluded and quiet. Harrah’s Las Vegas is another fun choice, since they have pool loungers right in the “shore” of the pool. As for favorite place to eat, wow! That’s a tough one because we have so many awesome restaurants. Everyone’s raving about Gordon Ramsay’s HELL’S KITCHEN at Caesars Palace. I like The LINQ Promenade because there’s such a wide variety of choices (pizza, bar food, barbecue and more) and you can also have a drink or two at any (or all!) of these spots. We’re so glad you enjoy the blog and please continue to visit our site! Thanks for checking out my article and feel free to write back anytime. I’m happy to answer more questions, David!
