Your Weekend Getaway Guide to Las Vegas

Las Vegas makes for a great Weekend Getaway. After all, it has cheap and plentiful hotels, frequent flights, plenty of things to see, and the kind of fun that usually only lasts a few days before the regret kicks in.

So if you only have 48 hours in Las Vegas, what should you do and see? Luckily for you, we’ve assembled this Weekend Getaway Guide to Las Vegas to get you started with the Top 10 Things to Do:

1. Snap a picture of the quintessential Las Vegas sign

It might be the only thing on your camera from the whole weekend, but at least this will prove to your friends (and to yourself) that you were there!

2. Take a Gondola Ride at The Venetian Hotel

It’s basically like the real thing! Or at least, it will look like it after a few drinks…

3. Party hard in a club like the Marquee at the Cosmopolitan Hotel

You’re only young once, right?

4. Watch the famous Fountains of Bellagio from the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas

Shows happen every 30 minutes in the evening, so you have no excuse to miss it.

Luckily for you, drinks are available pretty much everywhere in Vegas: poolside, mini bar, party buses, bars, clubs, casinos, and even on the street!

9. See an over-the-top show like Le Rêve at Wynn Las Vegas

It doesn’t count as a Weekend Getaway to Las Vegas unless there are sequins, feathers, and/or smoke machines.
