You’ve been working hard all year, and it’s finally time to blow off some steam. After looking through your travel options, you’ve realized that what you really want is time to relax with the option to get a little crazy with your very best friends. The best place to achieve that balance is in Las Vegas, no longer just the city of sin. Between the pools, spas, sun, and clubs, you’ll have more than your share of activities to choose from to make the most of your trip away.
What to pack
It can be tempting to just throw a few swimsuits into a bag and make your way to the airport, but why not add some extra special accessories to share with your girlfriends and set you apart from the rest of the crowd. Sister bracelets are a beautiful addition to your wardrobe that can be customized to say whatever you’d like, no matter the occasion. For your trip, create one that says “weekend away” or “girls’ trip.” Choose your statement and represent it in morse code with flair.
Vegas is known for its sun and warmth all year round. That’s why it’s a great option for winter relief, but during the summer, the sun stays out as late as the clubbers. You’ll need to keep your eyes safe, and no need to worry about it impeding on your style because sunglasses can help pull a whole outfit together. For a 1950’s vibe find some funky cat eyes. 70’s chic requires large, round, neon-colored frames. But if you’re into a classic, timeless fashion, look no further than Ray-Bans. No matter your face shape or color of outfit, you’ll be set. If you don’t have the gift of perfect eyesight or wear glasses instead of contacts, there are Ray-Ban prescription sunglasses available for you, too.
Don’t forget to do research into the clubs, shows, and restaurants that you want to hit up. They may have dress codes that require a certain amount of coverage, or lack thereof, and it will make for a smoother, more enjoyable trip if you’re aware of it before-hand. A sundress may be great for a pool party, but a slinky black pantsuit will be much more appropriate for a five-star restaurant.
What to do in Vegas
It can be tempting to focus on the partying side of Vegas or the dare-devil attractions that dot the strip, but Vegas is also home to some of the most amazing shows and spas in the world. Cirque du Soleil can wow even the most jaded of critics regardless of whether the theme is flawlessly adapted from the greatest entertainers of the twentieth century, or inspired from the depths of the jungles and seas. With so many choices, it can be easy to satiate your curiosities and tastes, and with restaurants and clubs mere steps from each venue, you can make a full night out of one block.
After dancing the night away, spend the next day on some self-care. A spa day can be enhanced by mimosas with your girlfriends during a pedicure, but be sure to have some time for just you with a massage or even laser hair removal. It’s a safe, cost-effective procedure that requires no recovery time. So while what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas (as does hair), the effects from being rejuvenated and refreshed will follow you home and beyond.
