Las Vegas Vacation Ideas

You want to take a trip to the desert, and Las Vegas awaits your arrival fully equipped with food, fun and splendor. But, if you don’t want to find yourself dawdling around the casinos for hours on end wondering what to do with your weekend, take a quick minute during check-in to ask the concierge about fabulous shows, such as Cirque du Soleil, and classy restaurants, such as Mon Ami Gabi at the Paris hotel and casino.

Cirque Du Soleil Performances

Always check ahead for any Cirque du Soleil shows that pique your interest. Visit to see previews for all running shows. Also check for online discounts that are applicable with codes and/or online booking. If you’d like to see the Beatle’s Love performance at The Mirage Hotel and Casino, visit the hotel’s website and search for coupons; you could save a bundle on great seats if you take a few minutes to browse.

Top Dining Locations

Mon Ami Gabi at the Paris hotel and casino is probably the most affordable, luxurious eatery you will come across. If you love big portions and decent prices, head over to the two-story Cheesecake Factory inside Caesar’s Palace. For succulent American cuisine and a 9,000 bottle wine tower, head over to Aureole at Mandalay Bay.

Las Vegas Shopping

The magnanimity of the malls in Las Vegas hotels still manage to astound visitors even visiting the city several years in a row. Planet Hollywood, Ceasar’s Palace and the Bellagio feature a few of the most grand malls in the entire city so reserve at least one afternoon for a walk-through, even if you’re not a shopaholic. If you want to be more adventurous, take a helicopter ride above Las Vegas to see Hoover Dam, ride the roller coasters at New York New York and Stratosphere or take a tour of the noted Little White Wedding Chapel. Remember that visiting Las Vegas during the week can save you a lot of money on hotels. Try booking through sites such as Monday through Thursday and you may come across deals as inexpensive as $50 per night.
