As Vegas reopened after an extended lockdown, people have begun to flock around this neon-laden tourist destination. If you’re planning a Vegas trip, you’re among the 42.5 million people who visit the city every year.
This blog discusses 5 things you should do when in Vegas.
1. Distances Are Long
The Vegas Strip is a four-mile-long street overloaded with buildings and attractions. Since the buildings are closely packed together, they create an illusion of small distances. But they aren’t. A walk from Planet Hollywood to Bally’s is fine, but don’t convince yourself to walk from MGM Grand to Bellagio. You’ll be drained out when you reach – unable to have fun. Use the Las Vegas Monorail and trams to visit places.
2. When at a Casino, Never Buy Drinks!
If you’re planning to gamble, don’t buy drinks as you enter the casino. To encourage you to keep playing, casinos send waitresses your way with free drinks. You may have to wait for a little, but it’ll save you some cash. If you plan to go to the club later, begin drinking at the casino so that you’re tipsy when you reach the dance floor.
3. Carry a Jacket, Sunscreen, and Bottle of Water
We don’t want to sound like your mom, but the mid-summer sun can dehydrate you within a few walking moments. Therefore, take small sips of water as you go to make the most out of your trip. The scorching sun can damage your skin, so don’t forget to apply sunscreen when you head out. Reapply every hour. To compensate for the burning sun, the casinos have blasting air conditioning that can chill you to the bone. That’s why carrying a light jacket is a smart choice.
4. Don’t Eat at Peak Times
The peak dinner time in Las Vegas is between 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. If you want to escape the hassle of standing in queues, have dinner before or after the peak time – especially if it’s a buffet. During the peak hours, the lines get unmanageably long, and the waiting may tick some people off.
5. Factor in the Cab Waiting Time
Vegas is a tourist destination. Most people travel in cabs. As the demand for cabs rises, so does the waiting time. Generally, you should factor in at least 30 minutes. Bump it up to an hour if it’s the prime time. If you’re leaving a concert or any other event with a vast audience, two hours would be ideal.
