Food, lights, revelry – sounds like a holiday! But sounds like Vegas too, right? Las Vegas is a great place during the holiday season.
Besides fun, food, and blinding lights, here are some other reasons why you should be in the entertainment capital of the world for the holidays.
The weather is perfect for holidays
Las Vegas has enough cool, crisp, yet sunny days to keep you in the holiday spirit. Another good thing about it is that there is no snow or ice to scrape and shovel. For this holiday season in Vegas, ditch the swimsuits and stock up on some great sweaters. However, you can also try some of the heated pools if you feel like swimming.
The holiday food options are endless
As previously mentioned, Vegas is always filled with great food and drink. In addition to the regular buffet, the restaurant offers holiday dishes that locals and visitors alike will enjoy. Bartenders also give the drink a bit of holiday cheer by serving the cocktail with crushed candy around the rim.
There are many games to play
Well, you have to be at least 21 years old to be able to play in the casinos but it’s totally worth it! From slots to Blackjack, to Craps, to Roulette, there are so many games to get into. If you are in Downtown Vegas and want to try Bingo, Plaza Hotel and Casino is a place to visit. They also have a new poker room, with automated poker tables, which opened just in time for the holidays.
Beautiful sights and sounds abound
Las Vegas also has one of the world’s best holiday fairs. If you’re up for a buffet, head to the Bellagio conservatory and botanical garden displays to see giant bells, polar bears, cute penguins and poinsettia plants. Caesars Palace also illuminates its halls and lobbies with lights, making for a great photo op for your holiday season in Vegas.
Free up for grabs
Do you want free accommodation? Some hotels practically provide room accommodation during the holidays. And that’s not all – free shows, free meals, free shuttle – that’s just the tip of the iceberg. All you need to do is know where to look for these freebies. Some are provided as compensation for the duration of your stay, while others are offered online or at the time of booking.
You can still shop because…
Some visitors come to Las Vegas not to play games, but to shop. And it’s no wonder why – a shopping center is only half a mile from the hotel. Louis Vuitton stores are within blocks of one another and fashion outlets are all around the place. What a great place to shop for gifts!
… Everything is open
Yes, all of them (except maybe a few Las Vegas shows, so better check the schedule in advance). But restaurants, casinos and bars are open during the holidays so there’s no need to worry.
