Ideas for Relaxing Vacations in Vegas


Dine in Style

Sometimes a tasty meal in a world-class restaurant is the key to finding wellness in Las Vegas. From breakfast, lunch, and dinner to casual, fancy, and fun, find every type of restaurant that tickles your fancy on and off the Strip. The D is home to Andiamo Steakhouse, a classy restaurant with American steaks and Italian flavor. Circa Resort & Casino offers some of the most delicious sandwiches in the world at Saginaw’s, a more casual joint. And for a lively dining experience, the Mayfair Supper Club is an absolute must with live music and dancers.


Explore the Bellagio Botanical Gardens

A relaxing vacation activity to add to your itinerary is a walk inside the Bellagio Conservatory to gaze at the breathtaking botanical gardens. These gardens are unlike any other with giant floral artwork and arrangements that are changed each season. A cool fun fact to note is that 90 percent of the trees, flowers, and plants in the conservatory are recycled as the displays rotate throughout the year.


Go for a Gondola Ride

Sit down, relax, and enjoy the scenery as you ride in one of the famous gondolas at the Venetian. As you coast down the Grand Canal, take in the sights of the bridges, shops, and beautifully painted ceiling or opt for the outside tour to see the sights of the Vegas Strip.
