Buffets & Food
Yardbird at the Venetian – The best chicken (bar Nando’s) I’ve ever had.
Heart Attack Grill – I hear they beat you with paddles if you don’t finish your meal…
Du Parrs – Very much worth the queue, plus it’s super cheap too!
Hex at Paris – Lovely view of the Bellagio fountains, so you can watch and eat without the crowds!
Bellagio Buffet – SO much choice and the breakfast is only $20; eat until you have undo your belt, you’re on vacation.
In N’ Out – Go off the menu and ask for ‘animal style’. You won’t regret it…
Things to see and do…
Flamingos at the aptly named Flamingo hotel – Kinda smelly but who doesn’t love pink birds?
Paris Observation – Apparently better than the view from the High Roller at The Linq.
Freak Dome at Circus Circus – For those visiting in October/November, the Freak Dome is a scary haunted house attraction set in 250,000 of someone’s idea of hell. This is possibly one of the BEST things I have done as I love horror movies and the Freak Dome makes you feel like you’re in one. If you’re wondering… you do need to sign a waiver.
Red Rock Canyon
Gondala ride at The Venetian – Kill two birds with one stone if don’t manage to get to Venice anytime soon!
Circus Circus – I came here after going to Freakdome and had SO much fun, it makes you feel like a big kid again with all the attractions and performers.
The Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam – If you’re in town for a 5/6 days or more, this is worth giving up a day to see…
The Wynn’s Lake of Dreams Show
The Shark Aquarium at Mandalay Bay
St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Wall – Exactly as it sounds…
High Roller at the Linq – I was sh*t scared going on this, but the view is stunning, I would LOVE to experience this a night too.
The Atlantis Fountain show at Caesars Palace
First Friday Las Vegas – Check out the local art scene and see where to locals hang every first Friday of the month of course.
Casinos – You can drink for free (pretty much) at any casino as long as you’re gambling and tip the waitress a few dollars…
Walk The Strip – This is an absolute must, by night or day! There is SO much to see so you don’t actually have to ‘do’ anything, just grab a Fat Tuesday, grab some trainers and lose your expectations.
People-watching – Anywhere and everywhere in Vegas is great to people-watch. ENJOY!
Las Vegas North Outlet Mall
Las Vegas South Outlet Mall – Not as good as the North outlet mall but worth a look if you wanna save some coins on your designer purchases.
Bars & Clubs
Tao, The Venetian
Drais, The Cromwell
The Chandelier Bar at The Cosmopolitan
Koi Lounge at Planet Hollywood
Tao Beach at The Venetian – Pricey but you’ll have a good time. The food is pretty amazing too…
Wet Republic at MGM
Marquee at the Cosmopolitan
Hard Rock – I heard this is meant to be pretty LIT on a Sunday 🔥🔥🔥
Thunder from Down Under at the Excalibur – I can confirm this is fantastic.
Paranormal, Paris hotel – Not sure how I felt about this in all honesty (my Vegas blog posts will be up soon), but worth a watch if you can get cheap tickets from the Tix4Tonight stands.
Chippendales – I can also confirm I left feeling a little flustered…
Jennifer Lopez at Planet Hollywood – Don’t be fooled by the rocks that she’s got…
Britney Spears at Planet Hollywood
Magic Mike – I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THIS. I will then do an in-depth post comparing Magic Mike, Chippendales and Thunder from Down Under. You’ve been warned.
Mariah Carey at Caesars Palace
Celine Dion at Caesars Palace
Cirque – There are a few Cirque shows in Vegas, so all down to preference but I hear they’re all pretty unforgettable.
Divas – The best way to end a Vegas vacation…
