If you're planning your first trip to Las Vegas, you're in for an exciting time. There are so many things to do – and see – in Vegas. To make sure you make the most out of your trip, don't just book a hotel and head out. A Vegas vacation requires some serious planning, especially if you want to get your money's worth.Here are four tips that will help you get the most out of your vacation.
Book in Advance
If you're used to booking your hotel just a few days in advance, you'll want to avoid that when booking your Vegas vacation, especially if you want to get the best deals. Booking your hotel a few weeks in advance will allow you to take advantage of discounts and specials that they might have available. Once you check into the hotel, ask if they have any upgrades available. Hotels often offer their empty rooms as upgrades to guests who have booked in advance. This is a good way to save money on your hotel, and get an upgraded room out of the deal.
Ask for Package Deals
When you're planning your Vegas vacation, don't forget to look into package deals. If you're going to want a spa treatment, or to take in some Vegas shows while you're there, the package deals are the best way to go. Most Vegas casinos will offer packages at a discounted rate. These packages will include the extras that you want to enjoy while you're there. There are a couple of benefits to booking a package. First, you'll save money on the things you want to do. Second, since everything is already paid for, you won't have to worry about sold out shows or overbooked spas.
Say Yes to the Limo
If you're going to be visiting other attractions and casinos while you're in Vegas, say yes to the limo rides. Don't settle for a ride in a smelly taxi, that you'll probably have to share with other passengers, when you can enjoy the luxury of a limo ride. Most Vegas hotels have limos available right outside the main entrance. Limo service is available throughout Las Vegas, at all hours of the day and night. When you're ready to leave, you can catch a limo to the airport, too.
Make Reservations for Dinner
There are plenty of places to eat in Vegas. However, if you're planning on enjoying a meal at one of the many fine restaurants, you'll need to make a reservation. This will ensure that a table is available when you're ready to eat. If you don't make a reservation, you may find yourself waiting quite a while for a table. It's important to note that just because you see an empty table in a Vegas restaurant, doesn't mean they have seats available. Most fine restaurants will leave one or two empty tables in case a VIP – celebrity, etc. – arrives without a reservation.
Now that you're planning your first trip to Vegas, take the time to do it right. The tips provided here will help you plan the perfect Vegas vacation.
