Envision you’re sitting in your seat aboard an airplane that’s just about to take off on a direct flight to Las Vegas, Nevada with your five best friends. Everything is all booked; the hotel, some top-notch restaurants for dining, a variety of shows and even some tee time. You think you’ve got everything all covered and technically, you do and I applaud you for having everything set up. However, there are a few odds and ends and minor concerns you probably don’t want to get stuck with if you’re in Sin City. Remember, this is a place for non-stop partying. So let’s ensure you have the time of your life by following a few simple rules. Allow me to elaborate:
Never ever say you don’t have day plans. While Vegas is notoriously known for its night life of strippers, clubs, parties and casinos during the night, you need to have several items on your to-do list planned for the daytime. There should never be a dull moment when you’re in Vegas – day or night. Ensure wherever you dine – be it lunch, dinner, afternoon snack – there is alcohol present! Now we’re not suggesting you down as much alcohol as humanly possible and over-intoxicate yourself; keep in mind everything is good in moderation. However, you’re in a city where every day is a party and there is excitement all around, so you shouldn’t, at the very least, be caught without a drink in your hand. Just saying.
Always, always know where your tickets are. Be it tickets to a show, a high-end nightclub, or anything that has been pre-booked. These are significant pieces of information relating to any special event you attend and to avoid losing such items please ensure you’ve stored them in your hotel safe alongside your passport. It might sound mundane to ask this of you but you’d be surprised how easy it is to lose tickets, especially when you’ve got several events planned on multiple evenings. One way to organize your tickets – because believe me, you will have a lot – is to separate each set of tickets with a piece of paper folded on one side (hotel rooms usually provide a complementary pen and notepad, don’t worry) and label each set of contained tickets with the event’s name and date. This way, you know which day is for which event and keep them organized chronologically. Your buddies will thank you for it in the end. It will save you all a lot of time searching and waiting for each roommate to look for their own. Plus they’re all in a safe place. Now to choose a pass code you all can remember for your safe…
Finally, never, under any circumstances should you ditch the casino. Seems like it wouldn’t be you? Might not be, but you’d be surprised how many people unintentionally miss out on some Black Jack and slot machine fun time. With so many activities planned, you can get all caught up in your events, all while missing the main event of Vegas: casino gaming! This is the top reason anyone books a trip to Las Vegas! It should be the highlight of your trip and you should squeeze in as much gaming time as possible, while maintaining proper gambling limits; let’s not create a gambling problem here, guys. Plus, casinos are placed in almost every single hotel so squeezing in some Roulette or Black Jack from time to time should be permitted, even if you’re on your way to a party. This goes with any other activity you have planned or randomly came across – ensure your days are jam packed with activities and events and try not to miss out on anything. You only have so many days in Vegas, after all…
