As a popular destination for bachelorette parties, odds are that you have already been to Las Vegas in the past. However, that definitely doesn’t mean that you can’t return to this great place and create new and exciting adventures. Or if you actually have never been to Vegas, then you are definitely in for a treat. Vegas is great for people looking for everything, or people who just want a simple break from their typical daily lives.

The biggest reason people go to Las Vegas is for the gambling. And yes, you can technically gamble in all of Nevada, along with a bunch of other states in the United States, but Vegas is where gambling is promoted and emphasized on a large scale. All the hotels on the strip double as casinos to varying degrees, and even a lot of the other non-franchise hotels have smaller slot machines waiting for you. Heck, even the Las Vegas airport has a bunch of casinos, which really tells you how ingrained gambling is in this city.

Now, if you want a simple Vegas experience, you can just spend most of your time gambling in one of the casinos (and yes, you can gamble in any casino, even if you aren’t staying at their hotel). In fact, most casinos actually avoid having any windows or natural light specifically to keep people there for a long time without realizing how long they’ve been playing, so it probably won’t be too hard to get your fill of slot machines while you’re there.

However, another big reason people go to Vegas are for the amazing shows. They have all sorts of shows, ranging from magic acts, to musical acts, to even circus acts like Cirque du Soleil. While some acts are bigger and more widely marketed than others, they all have their own unique appeal – just discuss with your friends and decide on what you all want to see, so that you can all enjoy the show together. And you can obviously go to more than one show during your stay in Vegas – so go to as many as you see fit!

The one thing to keep in mind when you go to Vegas is that it is extremely hot, and that’s the case no matter what time of year it is. Although I typically try to go to Vegas in the winter months, it still is pretty darned hot. That’s also part of the reason why people end up staying inside all day playing on the slot machines, simply because staying outside for too long is unbearable. To mitigate the heat, be sure to wear as little clothing as possible (within reason), and also wear light-colored clothing that reflects the sunlight. Otherwise, there’s not much else you can do about this, so just keep this in mind when you go there so you aren’t completely caught off guard.

Overall, Las Vegas is a great place to first and foremost gamble, but also to watch exciting, top-of-the-line shows all in one place. Even the casinos themselves are attractions in their own right, with many people making it a point to see all of the various casinos on the strip, if not in a single trip, then across multiple trips. Regardless of how many times you’ve been to Vegas previously, rest assured knowing that Vegas truly never gets old and you will undoubtedly create new and amazing memories with your friends the next time you go.
