Consider the following insider tips that can let you maximize your stay in Sin City.
Las Vegas is located in the desert. So, the temperature can reach 115 degrees during the summer. It is ironic, though, that even if you want to wear comfy clothes like tank tops, shorts or sundresses under the scorching heat, especially when you are strolling along the Strip or Fremont Street, you are likely to freeze when you go inside a casino. You may think that there is something in between, but there must be a reason why casinos have a tendency to control the thermostat at a surprising 60 degrees. Therefore, it is sensible to take along a light jacket or sweater to use when you enter. When you visit Vegas during the winter season (Halloween to Valentine’s Day), do not get deceived. You should definitely bring your jacket, especially when there is strong wind. Perhaps the blood of the locals is already thin because of living there, but be warned that it is much colder there than you can imagine. When it comes to shoes, fashion comes first before comfort in some places like Hakkasan, Marguess and Tao nightclubs. However, if you keep moving around in daytime going shopping, casino happing or falling in line at a tourist spot, use Tennis shoes or Birkenstock.
Take advantage of the 24/7 opening of establishments.
Since a lot of businesses either stay up late or 24 hours, it is easy to be spoiled by Las Vegas living. During travel, it can be upsetting if we cannot buy dinner after 9 pm or when grocery stores or gas stations are already closed by this time. Therefore, while you are in Vegas, eat whatever and whenever you want, even at 3 am only because you can. When you want to unwind after a show, you can hang out at a great spot like the Peppermill to get some dessert or cocktail. The coffee shop and lounge are open round the clock and have the ambience of Old Vegas. All major resorts along the Strip and in downtown Vegas come with bars and cafés that are open 24/7.
If you are fond of people-watching, you can visit many wonderful spots in Las Vegas. Once you get to The Forum Shops at Caesars, go for patio dining at The Cheesecake Factory or Spago. No matter what you are eating, lunch or dinner, people visit the fountains in front of these venues. The other bars and restaurants that have patios which show unique views of tourists that stroll along the Strip are Cabo Wabo Cantina & PR Rock Bar and Grill at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Fatburger across CityCenter, Mon Ami Gabi at Paris Las Vegas, and Rhumbar at The Mirage.
Be an obedient pedestrian.
Always look to the left and the right when crossing the street. Pedestrians have to pay more attention while walking across the Strip. Traffic can be scary. Maybe it is the lights, dancing fountains, Eiffel Tower or erupting volcano. No matter what it is, it is quite difficult for drivers to obey the basic traffic rules. Therefore, when the instruction says “Walk” you still have to look to the left and the right and continue with caution.
