Your crew always embraces the party—anytime, anywhere. Now the boys are going to Vegas for the first time and you’re ready to make it a weekend for the books. The only FOMO you’ll have is when you go home and think of all the things you have to do on that next Vegas trip. Here’s how to make those Snapchat stories lit and those visions of an iconic weekend in Vegas a reality.
First thing's first, check out The Strip.
These are the must-dos for a first timers trip to Vegas: Get that essential Welcome To Las Vegas sign picture, watch the Bellagio Fountains, take a spin on the High Roller, and walk down Las Vegas Boulevard to see what adventures you get into.
What should you do during the day?
Take a few swings at TopGolf where you can get your own climate-controlled hitting bay with food and drink service.
Adrenaline Junkies, we're talking to you.
Thrill seekers will love ziplining through Fremont Street Experience on the Slotzilla, or the thrill rides on top of The STRAT Hotel, Casino & Skypod that loom 900 feet above the Strip. Get your heart racing inside with a little indoor skydiving or on some of the fastest indoor go karts in the country at Pole Position Raceway.
What’s for dinner?
STK, the trendy steakhouse at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, sounds perfect. Another great choice is Libertine Social (Mandalay Bay) by James Beard Award-winning chef Shawn McClain, where you'll find New American cuisine with a modern gastropub feel. If you're in the mood for Asian cuisine, try Sake Rok at The Park to get sushi and a show in a party atmosphere, or the highly-acclaimed Momofuku (The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas) for their signature steamed buns and ginger scallion noodles.
We'll drink to that.
To live like a local, check out the lively downtown scene. Head to the Fremont East District for some fun bar-hopping at Commonwealth or Park on Fremont.
This itinerary is stacked to make your first Vegas trip one you'll remember forever. There's nothing quite like your first weekend in Vegas, that is until you come back again. You know what they say: what happens here, stays here.
