Stress-Free Las Vegas Travel Tips

 

Plan Ahead

A spontaneous trip to Vegas is always a great choice, but if you have the ability to plan ahead, you will cut down on potential travel stress. This is mostly just getting everything in order: booking your flight, reserving a hotel room, and researching what things you’d like to do in the city. This way, you won’t feel overwhelmed with last-minute stress trying to find somewhere to stay or not knowing what to do once you’re in the city. Even if you do end up doing a spontaneous trip, use time on your road trip or while at the airport looking up simple things like Yelp reviews for restaurants and bars to see if there’s anything you’d like to hit up.

 

Book in Advance

This goes hand-in-hand with planning ahead. A lot of places and activities are always available, but you should definitely check to see if anything you want to do requires reservations or tickets in advance. Especially with COVID modifications applied throughout the city, you’ll find that some attractions like museums now require time slot reservations to ensure proper distancing between visitors. Check to see if there are any live shows going on that you’d like to see and buy tickets beforehand if possible. If you’re planning a date night, make reservations at any restaurants or bars that require them to make sure you have the day and time you’d like.

Don’t Overthink Your Packing List

Las Vegas is a place where people go all-out, but that doesn’t mean it has to stress you out while you pack. You don’t need to pack every night-out outfit you own or every pair of heels, but choose two or three simple things you’d feel confident in that you can choose between. Packing too many options can even lead to stress when there are too many things to choose from before you go out! We bet you look great in whatever you pack, but if you want to pick up something new, we have quite a few places for a shopping spree. Here is a list of essential items you should consider packing for Vegas:

  • Dressy Outfits
  • Casual Clothes
  • Light Jacket
  • Underwear
  • Pajamas
  • Walking Shoes
  • Pool Sandals
  • Bathing Suit
  • Sunglasses
  • Identification
  • Cash
  • Credit Cards

Set a Budget

We know, another tip that isn’t the most exciting. But believe us, this one is a big one. Setting a budget may not be fun, especially when you want to let loose in the casino or sportsbook, but it’s at least better than ruining your visit when you’ve accidentally spent too much money. This also applies to shopping – Vegas is home to many incredible shops and you definitely deserve to splurge after a big win at the casino. Just keep track of what you’re spending so you don’t go home to a high bill you aren’t expecting. Besides, budgeting a bit of extra cash allows you to indulge in other great Vegas things like our incredible art, music, and food scenes.

 

Have a To-Do List

Making a to-do list for travel can be a huge help in Vegas. With so many things to do, even making a simple list of the things you’d like to do can help you plan out your days and nights while trying to figure out what you’d like to prioritize. And it doesn’t have to be a concrete list! Change it as your trip goes along, get recommendations from locals, or add things that catch your eye. Worst case, you now have a list of things you’d like to do on your next Vegas trip. Your list is a simple way to make sure you don’t go home and realize you forgot to do something you were looking forward to.

 

These Las Vegas travel tips require a bit of forethought, but we promise the reward is worth the effort!
