The Ultimate Guide to Las Vegas Spring Break Vacation

Woman Having Fun on Las Vegas Spring Break

Spring break is here, which makes it one of the most popular times to visit Las Vegas! As the perfect weather rolls in and the pools start to fill up with crowds, it’s time to start planning your Las Vegas spring break vacation. Las Vegas has a lot to offer for any type of spring breaker, making it the ideal place to celebrate the season. Use this guide to help you plan your ultimate spring break vacation and make the most of your trip, from where to stay and how to get here to planning fun spring break activities.


Planning Your Spring Break Vacation


Book a Hotel

Where you stay in Las Vegas can have a huge impact on your spring break vacation. Sure, you might not be in your room the majority of the time, but imagine how great it would be to have everything you want right in one place? Book your Las Vegas spring break hotel somewhere where you can stay and play in the same place. Look for a Las Vegas resort that includes dining, bars, a casino, and a pool (it is spring break, after all).

Also, take location into account! Staying in Downtown Las Vegas for spring break puts you in the middle of the always-growing Downtown scene while still having quick access to the Strip so you can experience Vegas to the fullest. Staying at the D Las Vegas puts you in the perfect spot to enjoy and explore DTLV, including access to the amenities at Circa Las Vegas such as the epic Circa Stadium Swim® pool amphitheater and the world’s largest sportsbook at Circa | Sports.

Organize Travel

Once you’ve booked your hotel room, it’s time to figure out how to get to Vegas. Keep your eyes open for flight deals if you are flying, many airlines have last-minute travel deals if you’d prefer to fly sooner rather than later. Taking a road trip to Vegas? Make it more than just a drive and plan a little trip out of it – think of it as a pre-vacation. Look up some fun pit stops to visit to help break up the drive.


Pack Your Bags

After figuring out where to stay and how to get to Vegas, you need to pack for spring break! In the spring, the weather is fairly pleasant in Vegas. Warmer days are ideal for the pool, and moderate nights make outdoor dining even more enjoyable. Pack your sunscreen, bathing suit, sandals, walking shoes, and some dressy outfits to make sure all your bases are covered for any occasion. Other things important to bring: a phone charger and your ID.


Make a Schedule

A Las Vegas spring break can certainly be spontaneous, but making a schedule will help you do everything you’d like to do. Not everything requires pre-planning, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to check the availability for the restaurant, club, show, museum, bar, etc. you have on your list to visit. A schedule can also help maximize your time in Vegas so you can do more things that you want to do and be more spontaneous with your free time.
