Girl’s Night Out: Taking Your Bachelorette Party To Sin City
A recent study published by a major wedding website estimated 35% of all visitors to Las Vegas are coming for a bachelor or bachelorette party. In contrast to all the stress and decision making that comes with planning the actual wedding, this “Disneyworld for Adults” offers a fun escape with a minimum of fuss. From flights to accommodations, transportation, dining and most importantly nightlife, here are some tips to planning a great bachelorette weekend in Las Vegas.
For discount flights, check travel websites for airfares during off-season and non-peak times. Hot Vegas summers chase some tourists away, so a mid-week flight in July or August can yield great deals. Look into packages that include hotel rooms, rental cars and even shows. This may save you a few dollars and is always worth checking out, but if you plan to stay on the strip you might not even need to shell out for transportation. Likewise, if there’s a particularly fantastic deal for a flight, you can check hotel websites separately for their own special rates.
When choosing a hotel, take into consideration what you’d like to do while in town. A well-planned itinerary may include spending the day in a cabana poolside, dinner out, cocktails at a nightclub and a suite to drunkenly sprawl out in afterwards. By choosing a hotel/casino that houses the best versions of each under one roof, you’ll immediately save on taxi fares or a party bus and driver to deliver you from spot to spot. Another advantage is that you may get deals on dinner and show packages or other discounts just for being hotel guests. Make sure you sign up for the hotel’s rewards program; it’s free and you rack up points and comps the more you spend on property.
One party perk that often comes with a higher price tag is table service at a nightclub, but in some cases it is very much worth it. Take hotspot Haze at Aria for instance. VIP table service here costs the price of a bottle and a nice tip to the cocktail waitress, but it’s the other benefits that make this a must-do activity while in Vegas. Along with the booze, you’ll be escorted past long lines at the entrance to a VIP section with plush seating, personal and attentive service and have a premium spot to watch the world class DJ’s and musical acts – not to mention the show on the dance floor. It’s the best way to be a queen for a day, and as bachelorette you most certainly are.
