When you think of RV destinations, Las Vegas might not be the first place to pop into your head. Vegas is known for bright lights and casinos, while most people take their RV’s off into the woods when they go on vacation. However, if you already own an RV and have always wanted to visit Sin City, there is no reason you can’t put your RV to work for this kind of trip. There are RV parks located all-around Las Vegas, and the weather is sunny nearly every day of the year. You can save money staying your RV as opposed to a fancy hotel, and many of the RV parks have amenities like a pool and Wi-Fi service.
Test Your Luck
Quite obviously, gambling is one of the main attractions in Las Vegas. The Vegas Strip is lined with some of the biggest hotel/casinos in the world, each with its own unique theme. If you are someone who enjoys gambling from time to time, Vegas is a place you should visit at least once in your life. Every casino game imaginable is available in the Vegas Strip, along with sports books and poker tournaments. Before you head to Vegas on vacation, set a strict budget for your gambling so you can enjoy yourself without risking money that you can’t afford to lose. It might be best to think about your gambling budget in the same way that you would plan on spending money on attractions in other cities. Don’t expect to get any of the money back that you are gambling, and anything that you do win will seem like a bonus.
Plenty of Other Attractions
Many people who have never been to Vegas make the mistake of thinking that the city is only about gambling. In fact, there is plenty to do in Las Vegas besides gambling – you could easily visit for a week and have a great time without placing one single bet. For one thing, most of the hotel/casinos have world-class restaurants waiting to be experienced. No matter what kind of cuisine you favor, there is sure to be a restaurant to match your tastes somewhere along the strip. Also, Vegas is famous for its live entertainment, and some of the biggest stars in the world perform on the strip on a regular basis. Of course, Vegas is a popular tourist destination, so plan ahead and purchase tickets in advance to any shows that you wish to see.
Hoover Dam is Nearby
You can easily run yourself out of energy if you try to stay out on the strip all day long, so spending some time on other activities is a good idea. One great spot to visit is the Hoover Dam, which is only a short drive south from Vegas. When traffic is good, it will take you less than an hour to reach the dam from the city, and you will be treated to an incredible sight when you arrive.
Las Vegas might be something of a ‘non-traditional’ RV destination, but it is an exciting one nonetheless. Whether you have made many trips to Vegas or you would be making your first voyage, consider making the trek in your RV to have a comfortable place to lay your head down at night after days full of seeing everything this incredible place has to offer.
