It takes a certain kind of person to want to hit the scorching Mojave in summertime. But, chances are, if you’re reading this, then you’re just that kind of person – my kind of person. Las Vegas is many things to many people, and in summertime, when the temperatures soar it is, believe it or not, one of the best times to visit the City of Sin. Here’s why.
City passes and discount cards – are they good value? Do you save money and time? Or is it cheaper to buy tickets individually? We took up the challenge on a recent trip to Las Vegas, to see if the passes really do save you money, how much value they provide, and how to make the most of the benefits.
Las Vegas has got some history under its belt. Few cities in the world can claim the same sort of bustling mob-Mecca tales that surround the skyscrapers of today’s Las Vegas. It takes a special kind of place to deserve the sobriquet ‘Sin City,’ and a special place Las Vegas is. We frequent its streets and hear its entertainment venues beckoning to us though few of us know the sordid truth about Vegas, because, after all, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right?
First time to Vegas? You’ve likely got questions. Where to go, what to see, that sort of thing? Vegas can be a big slice of pie and get confusing quick (not that slices of pie are inherently confusing…), but with a little patience and some forethought and you’ll be headed in the right direction in no time. Personally, I wouldn’t worry – it’s best to remember that Vegas is a city that prides itself on being able to provide something for everyone, and whatever your preferred method of having a good time, you’re sure to find it in Vegas.
Viator has employees working in offices in San Francisco, London, and Sydney, and we’re all bit jealous of those who work in the Las Vegas office, as they’re the ones who get to meet the most celebrities. The latest star to stop by the Viator Vegas office was Coco, perhaps best known as the wife of Ice-T and star of Peep Show in Vegas (she also co-stars on their reality TV show, Ice Loves Coco).
Three days in Las Vegas might not seem like a lot, but believe you me, there’s a whole lot that can go down in that amount of time. From bachelor party blowouts, to fantasy football draft picks, there’s a million and one ways to do Vegas and three days are enough to do them in.
There’s so much to see in Las Vegas, it can be utterly overwhelming for a first-timer. The Bellagio, The MGM Grand, Paris, Harrah’s, Luxor, The Stratosphere, The Palms, you name it, it feels like somewhere in the glittering streets, Las Vegas has got it. The problem is, if you’re new to Vegas and don’t know what’s out there – how do you see it all? Enter the Hop-on Hop-off tour bus.
Umm… yes please? Heading to Las Vegas for a bachelor party is, if I may be so bold as to take a wild guess, probably the number one destination spot for soon-to-be married bachelor revelry. As if the blockbuster movie The Hangover didn’t spell it out well-enough for us, there’s something special about heading to this adult Disneyland in order to party like it’s 1999.

You might think that because Las Vegas is the ultimate in revelry that it doesn’t need to compete with other towns for St. Patrick’s Day fame. And you’re right – it doesn’t. But it still puts on one heck of a good show.
