Enjoy a Sinless Trip to ‘Sin City’
While Vegas is known as a party town, lots of mature travelers love to have a good time in sin city, albeit with a little less sin. We’ve put together a fabulous itinerary for the consummate vacationer that wants to enjoy the best that Las Vegas has to offer it’s finer guests.
To begin the day, allow yourself to be treated like royalty and enjoy a feast fit for a king or queen. Head to Caesars Palace of course for their world-renowned Bacchanal buffet featuring incredible breakfast selections, accompanied by a mimosas (or two!). Next up, walk across the street where you can pick up “The Big Bus Tour.” It gives you a ‘tour’ of The Strip as well as a ride to Downtown Las Vegas and the North Premium Outlet Mall for some great shopping. You could spend all day here getting great deals, especially if you use your Vegas Saving Card (available from TIX4.com).
Once the nighttime descends upon Vegas, that’s when things really get going. Your best bet is the classic pairing of dinner and a show. For dinner, be sure to check out Pampas Brazilian steakhouse located at the Miracle Mile Shoppes at Planet Hollywood. Featuring 14 different meats and an incredible side bar, this is Vegas dining for sure. Afterwards, enjoy a little retro entertainment with Vegas! The Show, an all-around singing and dancing spectacular that is the sure-fire way to kick off your first night in town.
Hopefully, you got a good night’s rest because for day two, you are heading to Grand Canyon. By selecting one of the ¾ day bus tours (that depart directly from the Las Vegas Strip), you can enjoy the scenery in a luxury coach bus without the worry of renting a car. There’s a few options to choose from but your best bet is to go to Tix4.com and get discount tour tickets.
Once you’ve returned to Vegas later that afternoon, you’ll probably need a quick nap and shower before you’re ready to head out to dinner. There are so many options to choose from but here are a few of our favorites. Guy Fieri’s El Burro Burracho Mexican restaurant at Rio is a crowd favorite. Another celebrity chef spot is Rick Moonen’s RM Seafood inside of Mandalay Bay featuring sustainable ingredients.
And since the tour and dinner were a bit of a splurge, it’s a good idea to save a little money on entertainment tonight with a free attraction. The best choice is the Bellagio Fountains. The show runs every 30 minutes before 8pm and every 15 minutes between 8pm and midnight.
For your third day in Vegas, start the day with a bit of celebrity sightings over at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Attraction. If you weren’t taking pictures the first couple of days of your trip, this place provides you amble opportunity to get enough for all your social media profiles.
For lunch time, head on over to the Linq Promenade, where you’ll find everything from Starbucks to the biggest Yardhouse location to date.
And in case you left your souvenir shopping for the last day, there are plenty of boutiques to blow your remaining cash at. For your final night, experience the best tribute artists in Vegas at Legends in Concert. Afterwards, round out the evening with a trip on the High Roller, the largest observation wheel in the world. From up top, you can enjoy the iconic Las Vegas skyline and reminisce on the best three days of your life .
