Visiting Vegas? Get it right!

Be it first time visitors or seasoned tourists, many of the 40 million annual visitors to Las Vegas are doing it wrong.
Here are the top five things to avoid doing when planning and visiting America’s playground:

 1.     Don’t delay. The best rates for hotels and airlines are usually found when booking at least three months in advance. Resorts including Bellagio, MGM Grand and The Mirage offer their guaranteed best rates on their sites as well as a calendar of rates for up to 12 months in advance. Once your travel plans and hotel are booked, be sure to make restaurant and show reservations as the most popular dates and times are usually booked well in advance.

2.     Don’t stress. Once the hotel is booked, a helpful concierge is a quick email or call away so guests don’t have to stress over the details. Hotels including ARIA, Vdara and Monte Carlo have knowledgeable and friendly concierge that can secure hard-to-get tickets to the most popular shows such as the new Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil at Mandalay Bay and Blue Man Group at Monte Carlo, or coveted reservations at the best restaurants including the Michelin Three Star Joël Robuchon at MGM Grand or the new Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak at The Mirage.

3.     Don’t wait in line.  The newest and hottest nightclubs in Sin City, including Hakkasan at MGM Grand (home to Tiesto and Calvin Harris) and LIGHT at Mandalay Bay (home to Steven Ingrosso and Krewella), have long lines that can easily be avoided. Guests can again enlist their hotel concierge to set them up on the guest list for a speedy admission into the party. For an even quicker and upgraded experience, book a table in advance for an escorted arrival to your VIP table for the night 

4.     Don’t under do it. Be it dining, entertainment, shopping, relaxation or thrills, Las Vegas is the place to go all out. Imagine choosing the song for The Fountains of Bellagio, indulging in a $5,000 burger, shopping at the world’s only luxury-exclusive retail destination or spending a day at a world-class spa – the possibilities are endless!

5.     Don’t visit just once. Las Vegas is always changing. There are more than $9 billion worth of new hotels, restaurants and attractions planned, ensuring there are always new reasons to return. Earlier this year El Loco, a thrilling new roller coaster at The Adventuredome at Circus Circus, opened. Still to come in 2014 is the new Delano Las Vegas and revamped Strip-fronts – that will include a wide variety of new restaurants and shops – at New York-New York and Monte Carlo. Fast forward to 2016 and a new 20,000-seat arena, the west coast’s first Shake Shack and beer garden will debut in a park-like environment between New York-New York and Monte Carlo.
