What a coincidence!! I am leaving for vegas on saturday night. I am there for work though!
We are staying at Mandalay bay this time. But I have stayed at NYNY(fun), Paris (lovely but kinda old) , and Stratosphere (sketchville, its gross, stay away!!)
I HIGHLY recommend that you check out the Cosmopolitan. their restaurants are AMAZING and the hotel itself is soooo gorgeous. It was too pricy to stay there this time but I am definitely considering it for a girls weekend if I can ever make that happen with my besties!
Also for sightseeing and such: check out the fountains in front of belaggio at night, Fremont St (old vegas strip) at night. Some of the hotels have day passes for their pools, and often have day time parties going on which are fun!
Mandalay bay, luxor, NYNY, Ventian, they ALL have things that are worth seeing if you just want to sight see.
For shopping, there are 2 outlet malls each are about a 15 minute cab or a short bus ride down the strip. Totally worth the trip unless you want high end shopping, then there is LOTS of that on the strip (The shops connected to Bellagio and the ones in Venitian are to die for!)
ummmmmm. what else. wear comfy shoes everywhere you go. hot heels seem like a great idea in vegas but it NEVER is. the hotels and strip are MASSIVE and everything is further away than it looks. You will do tonnes of walking. I brought cute little ballet flats or wedges to wear at night with cocktail dresses last time and it was soo much better on my legs and feet.
Its also SUPER dry there and you need to drink twice as much water. I always forget this and I get dehydrated. especially if you are drinking. Sometimes I forget its a DESERT lol.
Have such a great time! Cant wait to hear how their Vegas wedding was!
