A trip to Vegas is one of those things that might be on your travel bucket list (it was always on mine!), and you may only get to do it once in your lifetime. That is, unless you love it so much once you visit, you want to go back every year (we actually had so much fun when we went and plan to return!). Here are some tips when planning a trip to Vegas.

Have Plenty Of Spending Money

What you need plenty of during a stay in Vegas is money. While it can be fairly budget-friendly (I was surprised by how little money we spent while we were there), you'll need a bit of extra cash if you want to have a few plays on the slot machines or tables. There's also a lot to do and see in Vegas that you'll definitely want to be out exploring for most of the day. That means you need some money for food and drinks throughout the day, plus any activities that you’d like to do - there's a lot to do, and though we didn't do a lot of the things that cost money, things can get pricey. There's also a lot you can do for free.

Find Free Entry Deals For The Evening

If you’re going to Vegas to party, then it’s somewhere that’s not going to be cheap. The best way to enjoy a night out on the Vegas strip is to get as many free entry deals as you can. There’s free entry to Hakkasan, so if you can get free entry into some clubs - you'll have more money to spend on drinks.

Stay During The Week To Save On Costs

The time of year and when you actually travel is going to determine the cost of your trip. Like most vacation destinations, the Las Vegas strip is going to be the most popular on the weekends so be sure to try and plan your stay for the weekdays, so that you can get the most of the attractions and sights that you see. There is a wealth of casinos available, so you’ll want to save your money where you can enjoy what Vegas is well-known for. (Don't forget to gamble responsibly.) We one early one Friday morning (like maybe 10?) to a small casino off the Strip, and the blackjack dealer was kind enough to teach us how to play, and stakes were lower (only $5 as opposed to the $10/$20 plays at evening on during the weekend).

See A Show

No Vegas trip is complete without seeing a show, and there’s plenty that will be on offer while you’re there. A lot of big names end up performing in Las Vegas, so it’s worth planning your trip depending on who may be confirmed to perform a few one-off shows. However, there are some regular shows available, like Penn and Teller at the Rio (which is who we saw when we were in Vegas, and it was so much fun!). Make sure to ask your hotel for advice on where it is best to book as you don’t want to get messed around by any ticket sellers who may be selling fake tickets.

A trip to Las Vegas is sure going to be a memorable one, so make the most of it. We had so much fun while we were there, and we can't wait to go back.
