Las Vegas Itinerary – Day 1 Guide

  1. A walk up and down the Strip is a must-do activity. Nothing else will introduce you to the scope, scale, and flavor of the city in quite the same way. Most of the action is located in the area between Mandalay Bay and the STRAT (roughly Sunset to Sahara Ave). Explore the huge casinos and their dazzling attractions. If you cannot walk it, try a hop-on hop-off bus tour.

  2. When you get to the STRAT, try the SkyJump Las Vegas thrill ride for a bit of excitement.

  3. Enjoy some pool time.

  4. Make your way to the spectacular Bellagio. Visit the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, and Fine Art Gallery (all free!). Get you tickets to the "O" Cirque du Soleil Show. Check out the casino and shops. Then, enjoy dinner in one of the Bellagio’s fine restaurants (Jasmine and Lago overlook the fountains). After dinner, see the Bellagio’s famous fountain show. If you feel like a stroll, walk to the Mirage to see the free Volcano show (nightly between 7 and 11).

  5. Cap off your evening with a walk to the High Roller Wheel at LINQ. Take a ride for panoramic views of the Strip. Then, stroll the LINQ Promenade and surrounding casinos.

Las Vegas Itinerary – Day 2 Guide

Grand Canyon West Rim

Many visitors opt for a Grand Canyon West Rim day trip (about 2.5 hours; 130 miles). Here you will find the Hualapai Tribe’s Skywalk Attraction (not a part of the National Park System). Beginning at around $74, the Skywalk U-shaped glass bridge gives visitors a clear view of canyon floor. At this location zip lining, pontoon and helicopter rides are also offered.

Grand Canyon South Rim

We recommend a tour to the Grand Canyon South Rim (about 5 hours; 279 miles). This is a long day, but worth it! In the National Park you can explore the South Rim Village with its historic lodges and studios, and ride a shuttle bus to favorite lookouts. However, the highlight of the day will be the spectacular 1.9-mile section of the Rim Trail that spans from Yavapai Point to the Bright Angel Trailhead. This flat, wide trail offers magnificent views of the canyon that you can linger over at your own pace.

  3. The Venetian & Palazzo: Walk north to the Venetian/Palazzo resort. Plan to spend a few hours at the Venice, Italy-inspired complex. On the ground floor the two hotels and their casinos are linked by a Grand Promenade. On the second floor, under an exquisitely painted sky, great restaurants and shops flank an indoor river. Here, you can take a gondola ride.

  4. Enjoy some pool time and dinner at your resort. Dress for an evening out.

  5. Vegas is legendary for its shows. Whether you are interested in a Cirque du Soleil, magic, showgirls, adult entertainment, comedy, or musical review Las Vegas has it all. Big shows sell out months in advance. Click here to check out tickets for top Las Vegas shows. Go to the Tix 4 Tonight kiosks up and down the boulevard for discounted day-of performances.

  6. After the show, stroll the Strip and take in the bright lights. Stop for a drink, dance, or hand of poker wherever you fancy.
