From top-notch entertainment, hip bars, delicious food, energetic pool parties and everything in between, Vegas simply does everything better. Here are five ways to escape the mundane to a place where everything is brighter, bolder and more exciting.

 

Not Your Typical Concert Calendar
Las Vegas is called the Entertainment Capital of the World for good reason. Where else could you catch a free concert on Fremont Street for the Downtown Rocks series, strut over to see Lady Gaga or Janet Jackson at Park Theater for either of their groundbreaking residency performances and then relive the ’80s with Def Leppard at Planet Hollywood? All this, and so much more, is only possible in Vegas.

Pool Days and Nightlife Beyond Your Expectations
The pool scene in Las Vegas is anything but ordinary. Whether you simply like to relax in a lush, poolside retreat, or party hard to the sounds of the hottest DJs, there’s a pool party for you. When you want to see and be seen and dance the day away, WetRepublic Ultra Pool keeps the party moving with renowned DJs like Calvin Harris, Tiësto, Steve Aoki and more. Transition seamlessly from day life to nightlife at Encore Beach Club, but be sure to stop by your room for an outfit update (dress code enforced). For a more laid-back pool experience, ease into a luxurious cabana at one of Bellagio’s Mediterranean-style pools, lay back and take in the sun at Caesars Palace’s luxurious Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis or enjoy a drink atop the Downtown Grand at the vibrant Citrus Pool.  

An Elevated Eating and Drinking Experience
Dining in Vegas isn’t simply a meal, it’s an experience. With so many world-class chefs and top-notch restaurants representing food from all over the globe, it’s best to come hungry! Pair a refined Italian dinner with a breathtaking view of the Strip skyline at Vetri Cucina at Palms. At Once (Spanish for eleven), you’ll embark on a flavorful journey to Peru in a provocative setting, nestled in the Venetian’s Grand Canal Shoppes. Or nibble on elegant light bites to complement your cocktail at the lush green Caesars Palace escape, Vanderpump Cocktail Garden.

The bars and lounges in Las Vegas are also one of a kind. Embrace the speakeasy bar charm at one of several prohibition aesthetic locales. Enter the Downtown Cocktail Room via hidden doorway, descend to the Mob Museum’s basement to The Underground, or sample bourbon and cigars at 1923 Bourbon Bar

A Redefined Sports Town
Vegas is the up-and-coming sports capital. From hard-hitting UFC fights and quick NASCAR maneuvers, to appreciating the fundamentals in the NBA Summer League, you won’t miss a second of the action. Get in on the local action while cheering for the Vegas Golden Knights, Las Vegas Lights or the Aviators from the stands.

 
Where Hotels and Spas Raise the Bar
Spas in Vegas take relaxation to whole new levels. Experience the herbal steam rooms and vitality pools before easing into the luxurious treatments in Waldorf Astoria’s Spa and Salon. Take your fitness routine up a notch and recharge afterward at Canyon Ranch at The Venetian. Or align your chakra or bliss out with a five-star massage at The Spa at ARIA.

From the ultra-luxurious to the hip and trendy, Vegas hotels are in a category all their own. Have your coffee on your private terrace at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Overlook the High Roller and LINQ Promenade + Experience from your room’s window in The LINQ Hotel + Experience. Go from your suite to the zipline at the Rio. Experience Las Vegas’ rich history and décor at El Cortez. Whatever your style or your budget, there’s accommodations that were made for you.
 

Don’t settle for another average summer. Make it unforgettable in Vegas.
