When we think of a holiday vacation, we don’t really put Vegas and Christmas together in one sentence unless it also involves a Batchelor party. I’m here to challenge that with 3 reasons you should hit Vegas for the holidays that DON’T include the partying, gambling, drinking, and year-round Vegas events.
There are very few places in the world you can hop around a 3-mile area and have a meal from celebrity chefs and world-class foodie favorites. Not to even mention what feels like “regular” to locals, but is still a top reason thousands flock to the city regardless of the season: ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFETS! For the holidays we go all out and tend to have a price tag to match, but a staple in inexpensive and AMAZING is Ellis Island. Just trust me. Your hotel’s cafe will also have reasonable prices! Here’s a short list of “OMG you’ve gotta eat here” on Christmas Night:
THE BUFFET AT ARIA – $53.99 for all you can eat, endless course dinner 12:00-10:30PM (Aria Resort & Casino)
HOUSE OF BLUES – $45 four-course Dinner through 11PM (Mandalay Bay)
BUDDY V’s – $53 Dinner through 10PM (Venetian)
BALIWICK – $35 three-course dinner through 11PM (New Orleans)
Vegas is the high key home to neon lights. Add some larger than life Christmas Trees, snow falling, holiday parades, and an ice rink or two and we are definitely a sight to see! We love flashy things that make you go “WOW” and the sharing of feels. Christmas season is no different. Here is just a small list of places that are perfect for your holiday photos and to get you in a festive vibe:
The Linq Promenade
ROCK RINK – Downtown Summerlin
New York – New York
Las Vegas Motor Speedway
HOLIDAY EVENTS & ACTIVITIES
This list could go on forever! Just this past week, there was a “Nightmare Before Christmas” Themed Holiday party with Skeleton Jack and Oogie Boogie’s Lair. It was EVERYTHING. They took over the entire boutique hotel, and this is how I want to live out the rest of my life. We have regular nightclub events with “Sexy Lingerie” themed nights for my ladies who keep themselves bikini ready all year long because, Life! We also have several ice skating rinks, the Cosmopolitan Rink comes with Holiday Watch Parties that are great for the entire family. Container Park also has their festive gear on and is a perfect location to kick it with the kiddos during the day.
Here’s what we have coming up:
Holiday at The Park: Through Dec 30th FREE
Mystic Falls Hourly Show: Sam’s Town – January 1st FREE Starts at 5PM
Cowabunga Bay Christmas Town: Through Dec31 (Closed Christmas Eve/Day)
Tournament of Kinds Holiday Show: Through Dec 27th
Very Terry Christmas: Terry Fator Through Dec 25th
This is the shortest list of things to see and places to be, so if you are coming to town last minute send me an email so I can send you some more things that are going on that are more catered to what you might like. Vegas doesn’t really shut down, so expect your usual favorite Las Vegas Strip Venues, Restaurants, and Bars/Lounges to be open and ready to keep your holiday spirits up.
