Sometimes you spend Thanksgiving at home with family, and sometimes you make the great decision to spend it in Vegas. This city has a lot to offer, including the best spots to have an indulgent holiday meal and to catch some Thanksgiving football. Use this guide to see what to expect, where to eat, and what to expect for Black Friday during your Las Vegas Thanksgiving trip!
There’s something really special about watching football on Thanksgiving, and Vegas is the best place to achieve that. With Circa Sports, you can enjoy the games at any of the Las Vegas locations – including the largest sportsbook in the world. Do you want to make it even more unique than that? Think about all your bragging rights for watching it poolside at Stadium Swim®, where you can watch the game on a giant screen while enjoying the heated pools. Probably the most epic way to kick off Thanksgiving.
What’s Drinksgiving, you ask? Only one of the most exciting holiday events in Las Vegas. Thanksgiving is known for its imbibing, and Las Vegas takes it to the next level. Downtown Las Vegas will be throwing an epic party – along with the best bar crawl in the city. Join the fun in the onesie bar crawl across Fremont Street at locations like One Bar, Circa Bar, MEGA BAR, LONGBAR, and D Bar. Even better, Flo Rida will be hosting with some music to get your night started. Follow up your Drinksgiving celebrations at the official afterparty hosted at BarCanada® and Overhang Bar. While we can’t promise walking around DTLV will work off those Thanksgiving meals, it’ll definitely be a great time.
If you’ve chosen Vegas for your Thanksgiving getaway, you can cross “cooking up a huge meal” off your list! Las Vegas might be the city of entertainment, but it takes a close second for great places to eat, and that doesn’t exclude Thanksgiving meals. Vegas hotels and casinos offer a plethora of buffets and gourmet restaurants that will leave you in a food coma and loosening your belt afterwards, kinda just like how you feel after Thanksgiving dinner at home.
At Andiamo Steakhouse, you can have a delicious steak dinner or a decadent pasta dish to create your own special Thanksgiving meal, and pair it with one of the wines from the extensive wine list. If you’re more of a cocktail person, order one of the signature cocktails whipped up by expert mixologists. The best part about this meal? No dishes to clean up after! That means you have more time to relax – and head to some bars to celebrate Drinksgiving after.
After your long day of Thanksgiving eating and Drinksgiving drinking, you’re going to want a cozy place to call home as that infamous food coma hits. At the D Las Vegas hotel, you’ll be treated to comfortable beds to flop down in to recover from the best Thanksgiving in Las Vegas. It’s especially handy for those doing the Drinksgiving bar crawl, as you don’t even have to leave Fremont Street to get back to comfort – and you’ll already be snuggled up in that warm onesie from the bar crawl!
Thanksgiving just isn’t complete without a little competitive shopping the next day, which is why Vegas is the perfect place to visit during this time of the year. Once your food has digested and you’re well rested from all the excitement of the day before, Las Vegas offers several great shops to score some Black Friday shopping deals, making it the ultimate spot for those wanting a shopping spree or those trying to finish off their holiday shopping lists.
If you’re in town during this shopper’s paradise, keep your eye out for Las Vegas Black Friday deals as you walk around town. Even if you’re just window shopping, it’s fun to see all the shops – especially as they get their holiday decorations up. It’s also super helpful to follow some of your favorite places to see if they are posting any deals online. This is also a great time to snag deals for future trips to Las Vegas, with many hotels and airlines offering Black Friday deals for future travel. This is something you can do when not in Vegas, but why wouldn’t you want to already be here?
Some more tips: Stay central, make a plan, budget, and pack light. Staying in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas gives you easy access to many shops, and making a plan of what’s around you can help you hit all the shops on your wishlist. Having a budget is also wise with all those tempting deals, even if you do win some extra holiday cash at the casino. And finally, pack light! For those Las Vegas Black Friday deals you do get, you’ll need space to bring them home (unless you land a great deal on a second suitcase).
If you’re in town for a Las Vegas Thanksgiving and Black Friday experience, you’re in for one of the most exciting holidays of your life. Football lovers and food lovers alike will have something great to look forward to. Use the D Las Vegas as your hub for the holiday weekend for everything you need: delicious Thanksgiving meals, fun Drinksgiving drinks, comfortable rooms, and more!
