Vegas is the world’s capital of fun and glamor, but it’s not the same for everyone. After all, who wouldn’t like to enjoy the expensive lifestyle of the upper class? The glitz and luxury of world-famous nightclubs invite everyone to a fabulous party with their extravagant events and A-list shows, but not everyone can afford it.
Or that’s what some people and tourism companies would have you believe.
Las Vegas is indeed glamorous and luxurious, but unless you plan on splurging or have a gambling problem, you don’t have to empty your bank account to get a test of the high life. So, if you’re interested in ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca’ for a few days, Vegas has a lot of amazing and affordable options.
Take Tips from the More Experienced Travelers
If this is your first time in Vegas, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed. The city is one huge touristic attraction and has so many things you want to see that it’s easy to forget you also need to sleep.
So, in order to avoid leaving Vegas feeling burnt and overworked, it’s best to plan ahead. And, to keep things in check, it’s best to check with those who know the city and all its offers. For instance, online platforms, like Viator, can offer amazing tips and original ideas that will make your first visit here unforgettable (without emptying your pockets).
Furthermore, there are many travel bloggers who love to write about Vegas, so you should check them out. And, if you don’t like to read, Instagram and YouTube also have content creators that are passionate about Sin City.
Five-Stars Food on a Tight Budget
Whether your budget is tight from the start or you just want to save for the more exciting parts of your trip, there are ways to enjoy the offer of five-stars restaurants without paying the hyped price.
For instance, many high-end restaurants like to keep their tables busy at all times, so it’s easy to find happy-hour or pre-show offers (or both) at some of the most refined establishments. In addition, if you don’t want to get a table, you can eat at the bar – sure the seating won’t be as fabulous, but the food will knock your socks off!
Not all gourmet restaurants practice these offers, so make sure to check first. But, high-end names like Michael Mina (Bellagio), American Fish (Aria), or L’Atelier Joel Robuchon (MGM Grand) are on this list.
Enjoy the Celebrity Nightlife Style
For many, Las Vegas is similar to parties and high-end nightclubs where you have the chance to meet real-life celebrities (whether performing or enjoying free time with their friends). But how do you make sure to get in without paying a hefty fee?
If you’re a girl or part of a group of girls, entrance is pretty much guaranteed. However, it also helps to get a flyer that warrants you a discount or free drinks (those promoters you meet during the day are actually useful). Also, make sure to follow the dress code, otherwise, you may not get in.
As a guy or group of guys, it’s a bit more difficult and you have to stand in line. However, make sure to arrive early (unless you’re staying at the club’s hotel or have an expensive table reservation). It may be a bit of an inconvenience, but it’s also a lot of fun – especially if you’re there to party all night long!
Vegas looks expensive and it’s very tempting to open your pockets wide, but with a bit of restraint and good thinking, it’s easy to keep your savings intact and make some amazing memories!
