From suites that equal more than an entry-level salary for one night to thousands of dollars for a night out at one of the city’s hottest clubs, it is easy to spend a good chunk of savings in a single weekend.
Though thanks to the abundance of cheap flights to Las Vegas, it is easier to vacation like a high-roller in town.
While most won’t drop $40,000 for a suite at The Palms, there are little bits and pieces visitors can pull from to experience life as a high roller.
Sleep: Most of The Strip’s resorts have suites. For a posh and luxurious sleeping experience, try a night at any of these: Wynn, Encore, Palazzo, Venetian, The Cosmopolitan or Hotel 32. These hotels feature some of the most posh accommodations and often times won’t break the bank (unless you check-in when there’s something huge in town).
Eat: Las Vegas has a large selection of world-renowned dining experiences brought to you by some of the best chef’s in America and beyond. Sometimes, the extra money you fork over for a fork of food is worth it. Spots like Bouchon at Venetian, Joel Robuchon at The Mansion, Le Cirque at Bellagio and Blue Ribbon Sushi at The Cosmopolitan are sure bets for some of the best morsels ever to grace your taste buds.
Unwind: Nearly every hotel has a spa with a bevy of ultra lux and uber cool treatments. One of the best spas in the world has an outlet in Las Vegas – Canyon Ranch at Venetian. There’s also Qua at Casears with an Arctic Ice Room and Drift at Palms Place for a traditional Turkish bath experience, only even more indulgent.
Drive: Forget the Monorail, bus or cab. Ride in style. Either hire a limo or rent an exotic car. If you’ve ever dreamed of getting behind the wheel of a Lamborghini, Porsche or Ferrari, you can in Vegas. Some outfitters even allow half-day car rentals so you can cruise up and down The Strip with the top down and drive out to Red Rock for some stunning scenery before returning it.
Shop: There are a lot of opportunities to shop on The Strip. Wynn’s got heaps of upscale designer stores, as does Palazzo and Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. Spending isn’t required, but window-shopping is a must.
