A Weekend In Vegas

In early February I was feeling the winter blues and decided to book a weekend trip to Vegas with some friends. Here is my summary of my first-timer tips for a weekend in Vegas!


You can't go wrong with any of the hotels, they are all very accommodating and accessible. My top picks to stay at and/or explore when you want something to do are as follows:

The Mirage: such a beautiful hotel with lots of natural elements, an aquarium and dolphins.
Bally's: we stayed in this hotel and we enjoyed the simplicity and the outdoor market
Bellagio: stunning fountains, and a beautiful artistic interior
Caesars Palace: I would not stay in this hotel but the built-in mall, casino and restaurants are stellar!
The Cosmopolitan: so fucking beautiful + secret bars and treats
The Venetian: a stunning, slice of Roman-inspired architecture with beautiful Renaissance-style canals and stores


Every place we went to was very accommodating to my food allergies and offered lots of menu options for almost any diet:

Americano: we went here 3 times for dinner and breakfast, epic
Margaritaville: delicious fish sandwiches and margaritas
The Pantry: French-inspired restaurant open basically 24/7 with freshly baked sweets and treats
Nobu: the sushi will melt in your mouth, this is not an exaggeration
Ramen-ya: RAMEN, HELLO!!!! Cheap, delicious and easy
Alexxa's: a giant bowl of alcohol + brunch
Fat Tuesdays: slushy alcoholic beverages in portable cups...need I say more?
Vanderpump Cocktail Garden: a boujee ass cocktail bar with dark Alice in Wonderland vibes - get the velveteen rabbit drink!


Drag Show: this is a great event to hit up with some friends for drinks, laughs and drag!
OMNIA: buy tickets ahead of time, good music and atmosphere (see Zedd if you can)
Zak Bagans' Haunted Museum: hands down the best spooky time, a great tour with lots of history and horror
Neon Museum: an interesting set up of cool exhibit spaces, best to see it at night
The Strip: just explore the north and south ends at your own leisure or with a drink
High Roller: 30 minutes on a Ferris wheel with an all-you-can-drink bar for $45
Fremont Street: a must-see at night, with lots of lights and fun!
