You’ve taken time, vented to family and friends, and got used to your new normal. You’ve found your own place, did all the time-consuming legal stuff, and replied to countless “but what happened?” questions.
Now it’s time for you.
Whether or not a getaway was on your long list of things to do, Vegas has everything you need to disconnect from what’s been going on around you, and reconnect to who you are. Let loose, go out, recharge, indulge, meet someone new − there’s no wrong way to overcome divorce, or to enjoy Vegas.
Here, you can make friends that last a lifetime, or just a weekend. You can fly above the Grand Canyon, indulge in a solo spa treatment, treat yourself to a shopping spree, and dine at some of the city’s best restaurants. Use this guide to help you step away and step into your freedom.
CHAYO − Mexican food and world-class tequila are two remedies for just about anything, always. (And, you don’t have to feel bad ordering guac and chips when the other always wanted to skip appetizers.) Located in The LINQ Promenade, it’s the perfect starting spot from which to explore the city, and to catch a ride on the High Roller.
Carson Kitchen − Located in the heart of downtown, Carson Kitchen is a neighborhood tapas-style dining spot. Sit at the community table and chat it up with some locals, or get as many shareable plates as you want and keep them to yourself. (It’s your trip after all, no need to defend your diet choices.)
Velveteen Rabbit − This eclectic craft-cocktail bar is the perfect local spot for indulging in seasonal drinks and listening to live music. Develop a new taste for a cocktail or maybe even get that tarot card reading you always wanted but that the ex thought was ridiculous. Afterward, you can explore its surroundings, the arts district, and take in the art decorating downtown Las Vegas.
T-Mobile Arena − Whether you go for a Vegas Golden Knights game or a headliner you’ve been waiting to see, this state-of-the-art venue is sure to be a highlight of your trip. Going without your other half means there is no need to compromise on the show you want to see, and with incredible seating and bars overlooking the entire venue, you are sure to be surrounded by people ready to have a good time.
Maverick Helicopters − Nothing puts things into perspective quite like flying over the valleys of the Grand Canyon. Get to be above and away from it all. Take the Dream Catcher Sunset Tour and soar over the Valley of Fire just as the sun is going down.
SPEEDVEGAS − Maybe your ex-partner had you settle and sign on the more practical car, but during your Vegas getaway, you can get behind the wheel of the car you dreamed of: Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, and more. SPEEDVEGAS lets you take your pick and take the wheel.
Qua Baths and Spa − Located inside Caesars Palace, this spa is a sanctuary for you to relax and restore. Shut off from the outside world and get to just be here. The services are rooted in holistic healing, like its Soulful Journey that includes vibrational healing, essential oil massages and crystal chakra alignment.
On your way home, you’re sure to head back with this: stories to tell, adventures to treasure, and a new-found appreciation for being single again- all thanks to a little getaway to Vegas.
