The Best Things to See, Do & Eat in Las Vegas!

Las Vegas is a glittering city full of entertainment, sparkling lights, and fabulously long nights. Often referred to as “Sin City” or “Disneyland for Adults” escaping day-to-day life by running away to spend a few days in Las Vegas has been popular for decades. It is no wonder though: there are so many exciting things to do that it can feel overwhelming.

And that of course is why I am here!

With all of my trips to Las Vegas, I have read what feels like hundreds of these “Best of” guides, and every single one of them is packed with ads, unnecessary pictures, and just overall fluff. I always told myself that when I finally create my own it’s going to be straight to the point and only include what is absolutely necessary.

*Please note: I am in no way a pro but I have traveled to Las Vegas quite a bit in the last few years and have done countless hours of research before each trip to see what is currently trendy and new. Not to mention, before each trip, I scroll through Open Table reviews, Instagram location tags, and #LasVegas on TikTok non-stop!*

With that being said, I have curated a special list of what I personally think are the best things to see, do, and eat in Las Vegas! Safe travels!
