I have had this trip in mind for a long time, but have never had the opportunity to actually go. I’m very excited to get to spend some quality time with my friends, and to experience the sights and sounds of Vegas.
Since I’ve never been here before, I did a little research on things to do, places to stay, and etc… but once you arrive, it becomes a little overwhelming, especially for a small town girl like me. So, for you first timers out there I’m going to make some suggestions in this blog that may help with travel to and from Vegas.
Location, Location, Location
I cannot stress enough, you must select a hotel by the location. Now, we didn’t rent a car of our own, so we relied on Uber and walking, so this was a big deal for us. We stayed at the MGM Grand and it was great! However, it’s location on the strip was far away from the center of the strip. It is located very close to the airport, which was a plus.
Attractions, Attractions, Attractions
Gosh there is just so much to see in Vegas. I will tell you there is no way to see everything in one trip. My advice would be to pick the top 5 attractions that you really want to do, and focus on those. You really need to research these, because this trip would be personalized for your group. We chose to take an excursion to the Hoover Dam. It was awesome! So much history!
Budget, Budget, Budget
Now this is one that no one wants to take about. But I have to be real with you, Vegas is expensive! Bottled water in our hotel was over 6.00 a bottle. Come on…that’s more expensive than Disney World! Most everything we looked at cost more in Vegas, so be sure to calculate that into your trip planning.
All in all it was a great trip, we had the best time! Here’s some more of our pictures:
