Discover Your Vegas Vacation Style

Last updated: November 8, 2017 at 10:22 am. Posted by in Las Vegas Restaurants, Las Vegas Shows, Things to Do in Las Vegas. No Comments on Discover Your Vegas Vacation Style.

We all have our personal preferences. For instance, Ryan Gosling or Ryan Reynolds? Ice Cube or Ice T? Kevin from “This Is Us” or Kevin from “Shameless?” Zac Efron or Zack Morris (OK, not only from two different generations, but that’s also our toughest one!)

Anyway, you catch our drift. Just like we all have preferences, we all have our different ideas of a Vegas vacation. Because there are so many things to do in Vegas, we’re breaking it down for you to make it easy. Enjoy:

Thrill Seeker

You live for adventure and everyone knows it. You’re the first to dive into any thrilling opportunity and you leave the scaredy cats in the dust. But hey, you keep everything fun and upbeat. Your friends love you for that. Speaking of friends, take a friend with you on the VooDoo Zipline, located between the two Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino towers. Fly more than 400 feet above the ground and get a 360-degree view of the city. The coolest part? On your return trip, you’ll ride back to your starting point, facing backwards.

Since you’re not scared of heights, stepping onto the 550-foot-tall High Roller – the world’s tallest observation wheel – will be a breeze. If you’re extra adventurous, you can board the Happy Hour cabin with an open bar, where you’ll toast with new friends and old during the 30-minute ride – all while admiring the neon lights below you. For an equally adventurous and romantic adventure, the Eiffel Tower Experience at Paris Las Vegas does not disappoint. Take the elevator 46 stories high and enjoy some of the best views the Strip has to offer from the observation deck. If you’re really seeking an adventure, you can get married here too.

Laid-Back Vegas Vacationer

So maybe you’re not a fan of heights. Hey, it’s not for everyone. But that doesn’t mean you’ll be skipping out on the fun. You can have your own laid-back adventure. We may be nearing winter season, but we have year-round pools in Vegas – don’t put away your swimwear just yet. Read about our winter pools, or have an indoor retreat at Caesars Palace’s award-winning Qua Baths & Spa. The famed Roman Baths area allows you to sprawl out on a lounge chair or sit underneath a waterfall. While you’re here, you may as well get a massage or facial too. Spa at The LINQ has the Strip’s only Himalayan salt therapy cave, which helps with congestion and sinus conditions (perfect for winter weather). The 45-minute session is free if you’re booking a treatment ($50 minimum).

If your way of unwinding is with a cocktail in a chill atmosphere, Bound at The Cromwell and VISTA at Caesars Palace give us relaxing vibes. VISTA gets extra brownie points for its digitized shots of the world’s best skylines. Lastly, you can channel your inner Bob Ross and paint some happy little trees at the Wine Cellar & Tasting Room at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. The next one is Nov. 15.

Club Rat

Spend your Vegas Vacation going to the nightclubs

You came to Vegas to dance the night away. Your suitcase consists of all dress clothes and shoes, a couple of baggy T-shirts to sleep in and your toothbrush. You’re known to flood your friends’ newsfeeds and give them serious FOMO. You can get your groove on at OMNIA Nightclub, Drai’s Nightclub and Chateau Nightclub & Rooftop. Trying to decide among the three? If you’re a hardcore EDM fan, OMNIA hosts big-name DJs like Calvin Harris, Zedd and Steve Aoki. Drai’s is hip-hop and R&B central with acts like T.I., Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Migos and Miguel. Chateau is a mix of everything, but if you’re lucky you might spot a Backstreet Boy serenading the crowd. If it were up to us, we’d want it that way every day.

Bar Crawl Bae

So, clubs aren’t your thing. You’re not about waiting in long lines, dropping hundreds – maybe even thousands – on a table or silently crying in your stilettos. The struggle is real, and you’re not about that life! You can go super casual and head to The LINQ Promenade, which offers a sweet bar crawl. Or, if you want the fanciness of a nightclub with the relaxing atmosphere of a bar, we love the bars at Caesars Palace. Alto, FIZZ, The Lobby Bar and VISTA are all walking distance from each other. Cheers to that.

Fine Dining Foodie

Eat and drink at some of the best restaurants on your Vegas vacation

Fine dining? You won’t have it any other way. And if you’re on a vacation, there’s no better way to splurge than with an elegant meal. If you’re ready to send your taste buds to France, Restaurant Guy Savoy will have you saying ooh la la. The artichoke and black truffle soup is a favorite, and of course the foie gras. There’s even a Caviar Room that has an exclusive menu of caviar dishes.

For a fresh take on Italian cuisine, GIADA at The Cromwell never disappoints. We love the aroma the second we step into the restaurant. And of course, all you Gordon Ramsay fans can indulge in savory steak dishes at Gordon Ramsay Steak. You can’t leave without trying the sticky toffee pudding for dessert (On that note, Hell’s Kitchen opens in January, inside Caesars Palace. Come get yours.)

Frugal Foodie

Where to eat on a budget during your Vegas vacation

Fine dining to you is more like a bucket list item. You’re not about to do that on your next trip to Vegas. Perhaps not even the next-next one, either. And you know what? Vegas has plenty of cheap eats, so you’re in luck. We can all save a buck or two, so there’s no shame to your game! We’re fans of Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips and In-N-Out at The LINQ Promenade. Earl of Sandwich inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino (or Caesars Palace) is a quick go-to sandwich destination and we can’t get enough of its signature fluffy, flaky bread.

Music Lover

If you’re anything like us, you love live music – especially if it’s by your favorite artist. And if you’re really like us, you end up playing their albums for a week straight. Pop fans can dance all night to Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys or Lionel Richie at The AXIS inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. And if you want to knock out two birds with one stone, why not go clubbin’ and see a show? At Drai’s Nightclub, you can see concert-length shows on any given weekend. (Just be mindful the headliners go on stage long after midnight. But it’s worth it!) If you want to sit down and enjoy a show at decent hours, the concerts at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum do not disappoint. You can’t go wrong with legends like Céline Dion, Elton John and Rod Stewart.

Show Goer

Sure, you can hang with concerts but you’re fine with just sitting back and enjoying a good ol’ classic Vegas production. Plus, if your favorite singers or bands come to your hometown, it’s worthwhile to see something different in Vegas. Kids and kids-at-heart will fall in love with CIRCUS 1903 at Paris Las Vegas. We must warn you: The life-size elephant puppets (Queenie the mom, Peanut the baby) are so adorable you may just cry on the spot. We sure did.

For something circus-inspired but more risqué, ABSINTHE at Caesars Palace is guaranteed to be unlike any production you’ve seen before. The raunchy and foul-mouthed Gazillionaire keeps things spicy, while the tap dancing twins from Compton keep the crowd hyped. If you really, really want to see a bit of everything. Rio’s newest show WOW brings it. Whether it’s the roller skating trio, the world-class archer or the dancing pirates, someone’s bound to leave behind a lasting impression.

Suite Sweetheart

For your Vegas vacation book a suite with all the bells and whistles at Caesars Palace

An ordinary hotel room just won’t do. You’re all about the bells and whistles and you want celebrity VIP treatment during your stay. Not too long ago, the biggest and best villas and suites were reserved strictly for high rollers and celebrities. Now through the Caesars Suites program, anyone can book a stay. Besides staying in a fancy-schmancy suite, you can also enjoy perks like round-trip limo transportation from the airport to your hotel; round-the-clock butler service in select suites; waived resort fees and much more.

The recently renovated Palace Tower villas have everything from marble accents, spacious living and dining spaces, gold-plated bathroom fixtures and TV and entertainment centers costing $20,000. One of our all-time favorites is the Nobu Hotel Villa. Its rooftop deck has everything from a barbecue station and living room to a tranquil Japanese-style pool area. Since there are just too many to name, you’ll need to check out our suites blog and find the perfect one for you.

As much as you’d love to splurge on a Vegas suite, let’s be real: You came here on a budget. You’re trying to save as much as you possibly can and all that matters is you have somewhere to crash. Well, rest assured: These rooms do the trick, but are still spiffy in our book. Take it back to your summer camp days and bunk with a buddy at The LINQ Hotel & Casino’s bunk bed room. Or, save in style and stay in a renovated room at Harrah’s Las Vegas or Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. If you’re someone who does want an affordable Vegas suite, you have that option too.

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.
