  1. The Strip – It’s huge and will take you much longer to walk than you expect. Wear good walking shoes and bring a camera! Make sure to stop into hotels to see the beautiful interiors and shops!
  2. Bellagio Fountains – Shows are every half hour during the day, and every 15min in the evening.  I recommend seeing at least one show at night. The combinations of music, water and lights really give it breath taking experience the first time you see it. Stand on the front side along the street for the best views.
  3. Freemont Street – The “old” Vegas. They have done extensive renovations in this older area of town. Make sure to stop into the golden nugget, and see the night show on the electronic roof covering the whole street.
  4. Outlet Shopping – There is a north and a south premium Outlets. The north seems to be bigger & better.
  5. Restaurants – Vegas has amazing restaurants featuring food made by world renowned Chefs.  Ask your hotel concierge for recommendations.  Sushi Rocku, Nobu, CUT steakhouse, and Joël Robuchon are among my favorites.
  6. Shows – I highly recommend taking in a show when you are down in Vegas. There are a plethora to choose from. Everything from Britney Spears, to dance groups, to comedians, to acrobatic shows. I have really enjoyed the Cirque Du Soleil shows, “O” being my absolute hands down favourite. They can get pretty expensive, but are worth a special night out.
  7. Nightlife – Vegas has its fair share of nightclubs. You really can’t go wrong hitting up the main ones in each hotel.  (XS, Marquee, Hakkasan, Tao, Drai’s, 1 OAK, Hyde, Haze,  Beachers Madhouse,  Remember to dress to impress, and go early to not spend most of your night in lines. Ladies can get guestlist very easily, however Gentleman you are usually looking at a $50-100 entrance fee if you’re not with a large group of ladies. Drinks will run you $12+ to a few thousand for a bottle and a table.
  8. Day Trip: Grand Canyon – The Grand Canyon is about a 4.5 hour drive from Las Vegas. There are a ton of tours you can take straight from Vegas, or rent a car and do it yourself.
