That well-known phrase, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” doesn’t only apply to men, and yet Las Vegas is not known as being a popular choice for ladies planning a girls-only trip. Despite this, Sin City is the ideal place for girls to let loose and have the kind of fun that it is almost impossible to find anywhere else. From glitzy casinos to fabulous shopping venues to great shows, Las Vegas has it all, and then some.
Let the ladies shop till they drop!
One of the main attractions Las Vegas offers is the shopping. Las Vegas is one of the most impressive shopping destinations in the United States and offers everything from quaint boutiques and funky vintage shops to designer outlets and major department stores. There are also plenty of places that will appeal to the serious bargain hunter.
A shopping Mecca, Las Vegas has something to offer every girl; from stores like Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 that appeal to younger shoppers to chic designer boutiques including Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Chanel for the serious ‘fashionista’, every taste is catered for. Some of the most popular shopping venues include Crystals at CityCenter, the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, and the Fashion Show Mall. Those staying at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas should make it a point to visit the Miracle Mile Shops.
Check out the charismatic cats
One of the most unique attractions in Las Vegas, Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage is something not to be missed. The secret garden provides a great escape from all the shopping and gambling and a chance to spend some quality time with some of the most beautiful animals on the planet including leopards, panthers, white lions, and white tigers as well as an impressive collection of bottle-nosed dolphins.
See the Grand Canyon in style
When traveling to Vegas for a girls’ trip it is important to spend some time enjoying nature, and one of the best ways to do this is in a helicopter. A helicopter ride out to the Grand Canyon is a thrilling, unforgettable way to see one of the most amazing natural wonders in the world.
If a helicopter ride isn’t of interest, a road trip can offer a great alternative. Route 66 is one of the most scenic roads in the United States and gets tourists to the Grand Canyon in about five hours.
Hit the casinos for people watching
There is no rule that says one must gamble when in Vegas – although everyone should take a chance on the slot machines at least once – and there is plenty of fun to be had at the casinos without placing a bet. The casino floor is one of the best places to get a good look at all the different types of people that come to Vegas, and if the girls are into people watching, there is no better place for it. Start at one end of The Strip and work down to the other through the different casinos before finishing the trip with a nice meal.
