Are you a local in Las Vegas? Swap out your local hat for a tourist hat for a weekend staycation, and treat yourself to the amazing attractions, restaurants, and casinos that are right in your backyard! A staycation in Las Vegas is one of the best vacations you can take. Not only are you saving money on travel time and costs, but you’ll also be able to play tourist in one of the most exciting cities in the world. There’s a lot to offer for any travel style, whether you want to relax in one of the world-class spas, spend the day (or night) at the pool, or finally check out all those tourist spots you usually try to avoid. Read on to see how you can have the best staycation in Las Vegas!
Want to make your Vegas staycation unforgettable? Choosing the perfect hotel is where the real magic happens. You deserve the best, from a cozy bed to stunning views and state-of-the-art amenities. While you might be spending a lot of time outside of your room exploring all the things around town, you still deserve to treat yourself to a comfortable getaway as your home (not so far) away from home. At the D Las Vegas, you’ll be centrally located in Downtown Las Vegas and have a sleek, modern room to escape to at the end of the day.
Locals and visitors alike should visit a casino at least once during their trip. Winning a little extra staycation money can make it even better! With slot machines, table games, and even a vintage Sigma Derby game, the D Casino is perfect for some fun gambling. To make your casino visit even better, join the Club One Player’s Club for exclusive deals, free slot play, priority reservations, VIP access and more. The more you play, the more points you can score, which is definitely a perk when you live in the city and can enjoy the benefits whenever you please.
Ditch your kitchen at home for an expertly-prepared meal in town. From a fancy steakhouse to just grabbing a quick bite to eat, Vegas is home to a number of cuisines and styles fit for any foodie to have the best staycation ever. Andiamo Steakhouse offers the finest steaks, Italian food, and wine list for a special night out. Or, get your fill of 24/7 brunch at Bacon Nation. If you’re looking for something more casual but still delicious, head over to American Coney Island. Nearby, you can also indulge in the Circa restaurant lineup for even more variety, from delis to BBQ!
From some of the most stunning Las Vegas views from rooftop bars to bars with flair, there’s a drink for everyone in Vegas. Get an elevated sports bar experience at BarCanada®, grab a drink by the casino at Vue Bar, snag one of the many seats at LONGBAR, or get a classic frozen yard drink at D Bar where you can find flair bartending right on Fremont Street. If you truly want to embrace your Las Vegas staycation, head to Legacy Club on the 60th floor of Circa to overlook your entire beautiful city from a stunning rooftop.
In the desert heat, pool time is a must. Las Vegas has no shortage of pools and pool parties to choose from, whether you’re looking to lounge and relax or party and let loose. Circa Stadium Swim® is the perfect spot for hanging out by the pool while watching your favorite events on the massive 40-foot-tall screen instead of in your living room. With 6 pools, 30 cabanas, and over 300 lounge chairs, there’s plenty of space for you to either cheer on your favorite team or relax with a cocktail in hand. Better yet, staying at the D grants you access to Stadium Swim.
One of the greatest parts of a Las Vegas staycation is that you can avoid a lot of the stress that comes with travel. Continue those stress-free vibes on your “trip” and do one of the many relaxing things in and around town. Vegas has a number of incredible spas for a classically relaxing day. If you like to work out your stress, take a little drive to take a hike to connect with nature. Or maybe a shopping spree is more your style! Or, if you simply need a staycation for an excuse to sleep in with no distractions, being cozy in your Vegas suite is the place to be.
Oftentimes, living in a city means you don’t do a lot of the things visitors travel to do and see, whether it be to avoid the lines or avoid the kitschiness of it. Doing things like the SlotZilla Zip Line, riding the LINQ High Roller, going to the Neon Museum, or even taking a gondola ride at the Venetian might all seem like things you wouldn’t normally do. But why hold back on your staycation? Use this time to ignore your local side and embrace your tourist side to see some things you wouldn’t typically see during your regular routine at home.
If you’re ready for a vacation, make it a Las Vegas staycation and experience all the things you can do right in your incredible home city. You deserve to treat yourself to a great time, which you’ll easily find right in your backyard. When you’re ready to start planning, be sure to book a room at the D to get started!
