So, you’re heading to Las Vegas and want to prepare for ‘Sin City’? We have compiled a list of helpful tips you can use to get yourself prepared for the entertainment capital of the world.
Immerse yourself in Las Vegas media
Fact: some of the most iconic movies have taken place in Vegas, so why not prepare yourself for your trip by watching the likes of Ocean’s Eleven, or The Hangover? Failing that, try listening to a podcast (typing ‘travel podcast Las Vegas’ into Google gives you a vast list of options to stream). Or lastly, try finding a Vegas-themed playlist. We recommend listening to Viva Las Vegas by Elvis Presly – it’s a classic, as well as a sure-fire way to get excited over your trip!
Play lottery games online and get into the spirit of Las Vegas
Las Vegas is famous for its gaming and nightlife, so why not practice your skills online before you go? Playing legal games can help sharpen your skills and allow you to learn a few more games that you might run into whilst there.
Or, if you’re feeling extra lucky why not put your luck to the test and play the lottery? You may win a pretty penny to take with you when you go to Las Vegas: playing the lottery on PlayUSALotteries is a great option because this platform allows you to buy lottery tickets online and take part in US jackpots without living domestically. This means you can set yourself up for a Las Vegas holiday before jumping on the plane (if you’re really lucky).
Research events in the area
Las Vegas is so vibrant and has so much going on at any one time it’s important that you do your research. Take a look at Google Maps and plan your route with some thought.
Most notably, make sure that you don’t underestimate your travel needs. Though the transportation system is great, Las Vegas is a busy city.
Also, take a look at event listings and get an idea of what you would like to see when there. Some popular pastimes include helicopter rides, horse riding in the canyon, cabaret shows, and impersonators. With all that, you won’t run out of things to do, just plan accordingly.
Pick out a new wardrobe
As with every trip, the urge to purchase a whole new wardrobe is always there; so why not do just that? The Las Vegas scene is notoriously eccentric and gaudy so why not have some fun with this? Create yourself a new persona for your trip and run with it – invest in statement accessories, incorporate bright colours and bold items into your wardrobe for your holiday, and who knows, if you get lucky you may get drafted into a cabaret show.
Try your hand at card counting (but not for real)
Just to be clear, this is said in jest.
With that said, if you do end up mastering card counting it can definitely make for a fun party trick for you to show to friends and family, and a sure-fire way to get you into the ‘Sin City’ spirit!
