Buffets & Food
Yardbird at the Venetian – The best chicken (bar Nando’s) I’ve ever had.
Heart Attack Grill – I hear they beat you with paddles if you don’t finish your meal…
Du Parrs – Very much worth the queue, plus it’s super cheap too!
Hex at Paris – Lovely view of the Bellagio fountains, so you can watch and eat without the crowds!
Bellagio Buffet – SO much choice and the breakfast is only $20; eat until you have undo your belt, you’re on vacation.
In N’ Out – Go off the menu and ask for ‘animal style’. You won’t regret it…
Things to see and do…
Flamingos at the aptly named Flamingo hotel – Kinda smelly but who doesn’t love pink birds?
Paris Observation – Apparently better than the view from the High Roller at The Linq.
Freak Dome at Circus Circus – For those visiting in October/November, the Freak Dome is a scary haunted house attraction set in 250,000 of someone’s idea of hell. This is possibly one of the BEST things I have done as I love horror movies and the Freak Dome makes you feel like you’re in one. If you’re wondering… you do need to sign a waiver.
Red Rock Canyon
The Shark Aquarium at Mandalay Bay
St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Wall – Exactly as it sounds…
High Roller at the Linq – I was sh*t scared going on this, but the view is stunning, I would LOVE to experience this a night too.
The Atlantis Fountain show at Caesars Palace
First Friday Las Vegas – Check out the local art scene and see where to locals hang every first Friday of the month of course.
Casinos – You can drink for free (pretty much) at any casino as long as you’re gambling and tip the waitress a few dollars…
Walk The Strip – This is an absolute must, by night or day! There is SO much to see so you don’t actually have to ‘do’ anything, just grab a Fat Tuesday, grab some trainers and lose your expectations.
People-watching – Anywhere and everywhere in Vegas is great to people-watch. ENJOY!
Las Vegas North Outlet Mall
Las Vegas South Outlet Mall – Not as good as the North outlet mall but worth a look if you wanna save some coins on your designer purchases.
Bars & Clubs
Tao, The Venetian
Drais, The Cromwell
The Chandelier Bar at The Cosmopolitan
Koi Lounge at Planet Hollywood
Tao Beach at The Venetian – Pricey but you’ll have a good time. The food is pretty amazing too…
Wet Republic at MGM
Marquee at the Cosmopolitan
Hard Rock – I heard this is meant to be pretty LIT on a Sunday 🔥🔥🔥
Thunder from Down Under at the Excalibur – I can confirm this is fantastic.
Paranormal, Paris hotel – Not sure how I felt about this in all honesty (my Vegas blog posts will be up soon), but worth a watch if you can get cheap tickets from the Tix4Tonight stands.
Chippendales – I can also confirm I left feeling a little flustered…
Jennifer Lopez at Planet Hollywood – Don’t be fooled by the rocks that she’s got…
Britney Spears at Planet Hollywood
Magic Mike – I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THIS. I will then do an in-depth post comparing Magic Mike, Chippendales and Thunder from Down Under. You’ve been warned.
Mariah Carey at Caesars Palace
Celine Dion at Caesars Palace
Cirque – There are a few Cirque shows in Vegas, so all down to preference but I hear they’re all pretty unforgettable.
Divas – The best way to end a Vegas vacation…
You can check out my posts from my 2015 trip to Vegas here and here, and my 2016 here, with more to come of course!
Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up. I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
