How to Spend a Fun Weekend in Vegas
Sin City has long been a world-renowned fixture in the imagination of the world.
Pre-pandemic, Las Vegas was bringing in approximately 43 million tourists in a year. Those numbers are climbing back up, and with the health of sports betting and casinos, 24-hour nightlife, and some of the biggest star power in town any given night, Vegas is never a hard sell.
Picturing Vegas is one thing, but you have to visit Vegas for yourself to experience the full extent. That starts with understanding what you should do when you have an entire weekend to fill. We’ve got the suggestions you need.
Consider these options as you plan out your next weekend in Vegas.
Try Some Fine Drinks
Your trip to Vegas isn’t complete without enjoying some fine drinks. Some of the best bartenders and mixologists in the world plant roots in Vegas so that they can serve customers from all over the world. You can find a craft brewery to watch the game while enjoying an IPA. You might also choose to enjoy some craft cocktails if you have a favorite dry gin that you’ve been dying to try.
Bourbon aficionados should look into the different types of bourbon available in the city. Vegas regularly showcases in-house whiskeys in addition to bourbon imports from all over the world.
Las Vegas is also a dark liquor lover’s paradise. You’ll find all kinds of whiskey throughout Sin City and can take a tour and learn about what’s in your glass.

Go to a Burlesque Show or Strip Club

Vegas also has some of the best strip clubs you’ll find, which is why it’s also the bachelor club capital. Going to the strip club is a great way to unwind. If you work hard for your money, there’s a certain thrill that comes with playing hard and blowing money in a sexually charged atmosphere.
Best of all, most strip clubs in Las Vegas will pick you up from your hotel in a limo bus, so you don’t need to worry about getting to and from the club safely and can drink without worrying about your transportation.
Hit the Clubs
