If you are a secret fan of The Only Way is Essex, then you will have seen the gang enjoying the high life in Las Vegas recently! A great, exciting, fun filled city that never sleeps, Las Vegas can be an amazing place to enjoy a weekend away with the girls or your man…here’s a few of our favourite places to stay, things to do & must see’s…
Where to stay
The Mandarin Oriental is currently Trip Advisors top ranking Vegas hotel – no mean feat amongst so many amazing places to choose from! Soaring 47 stories above the world famous Strip, with dynamic views of the city & the desert beyond, the Manadarin Oriental oozes sophistication with a sleek décor incorporating subtle Asian-inspired touches
If you want a more themed hotel, The Venetian Resort with its wide choice of suites, 3 pool areas, casinos & untold amount of restaurants, bars & nightclubs could be for you! & of course no trip to Venice — or The Venetian — would be complete without a graceful & romantic glide down the Grand Canal in an authentic Venetian gondola!
For the more budget conscious, a stay a few minutes off the strip can offer great value. With comfortable suites with full kitchens the Desert Rose Resort also has a pool to relax in & is only 1.5 blocks from the busy Las Vegas strip
Where to eat
If you are looking for steak, look no further than Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse! Located inside the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino, you can expect an award winning menu with a selection of the finest prime beef, fresh seafood & more – a worldclass steakhouse through & through
A french fancy awaits you at Mon Ami Gabi – sit outside & people watchwhile enjoying crepes for breakfast or enjoy dinner while watching the views of the Bellagio fountains – an experience not to be missed
Voted the best place to view the city, dining at the Top of the World is as much about the food as it is the view! The famous, revolving restaurant is probably one of the most well-known in Vegas – book a sunset table early to avoid disappointment
A trip to Las Vegas is not complete without seeing a tribute show – The Rat Pack is Back takes audiences back in time to an era when shows on the Las Vegas Strip featured only all-live music & entertainers who really knew how to work the crowd! Backed by a 12-piece band including Rat Pack hits “Luck Be a Lady” & “Lady is a Tramp”
Pick any Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas & prepare to be amazed! With a choice of 8 very different productions but all including combining high-energy acrobatics & dramatic dance with vibrant costumes & sets – you will leave the show saying ‘wow’
For the 30-somethings out there, if you were a Bros fan back in the day, then do not miss Matt Goss at Caesars Palace! Backed by a 7 piece band & female dancers called ‘The Dirty Virgins’, Matt entertains his guests with a full-blown production including a mix of his career hits & popular covers – he even does a meet & greet after!
* Watch the Bellagio Fountains
* Take a helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon & Hoover Dam Bypass
* Check out the casinos! Set your limit & aim high!
* Have a photo taken by the famous Las Vegas sign
* Visit out a wedding chapel – if you are single when you enter will you be married when you leave?!
