We’ve put together the perfect itinerary to make the most of your time. Relax with a soothing Swedish massage or get your adrenaline pumping on a ride down Stratosphere Tower high above the Strip. In between shows, feast at one of the city’s best buffets and head out on a tour of the Grand Canyon. And now, it’s time to kick off your three-day adventure!
Breakfast at The Pantry
Welcome to Vegas. It’s going to be a lively (and very long!) first day, so don’t skip the most important meal of the day. The Pantry at the Mirage cooks up everything from scrumptious breakfast sandwiches to plates of fluffy pancakes. Best of all, they serve the breakfast menu 24 hours a day. This is Vegas, after all!
Shark Reef at Mandalay
Vegas really does have everything you can imagine, including a dazzling aquarium. Walk through a spectacular underwater world where you can see giant sea turtles and rare golden crocodiles. There are over 2,000 exotic sea creatures in the Shark Reef at Mandalay. If you’re curious, conservation experts are on hand to explain the mysterious world of the deep oceans.
Panoramic Night Tour
Everyone knows the best show in Vegas is on the Strip when the lights come on! Experience the unforgettable after-dark scenery that Sin City is famous for from an open-top double-decker bus. With the Panoramic Night Tour, you’ll ride past highlights like Treasure Island, Paris Eiffel Tower and the Mirage Volcano for the perfect photo op.
TAO All Access
On your first night in Vegas, get out there and explore the famous nightlife scene. The TAO All Access pass gives you VIP entry to one of the hottest spots on the Strip, where celebs like Jay-Z and Britney Spears have partied. It also includes access to TAO Beach, a tropical oasis with a sparkling pool and private cabanas.
The Free Spirit Tour by Mustang Helicopters
The casino floors are exciting, but Vegas is also near some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. Explore the magnificent Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam from high in the sky from the comfort of a state-of-the-art helicopter. The Free Spirit Tour by Mustang Helicopters leaves in the morning, so you won’t miss out on Vegas fun – you’ll be back in time for lunch!
Lunch at Sushi Roku
Known for exquisite cuts of fresh fish that attract a celebrity clientele, Sushi Roku is a trendy four-star restaurant right on the Strip. But you don’t have to go after the sun goes down to dine on the best sushi in Vegas. Come at lunchtime when you can order bento boxes and custom sushi assortments for a fraction of the normal price.
Stratosphere Tower & Rides
Ride up to the tallest structure in Sin City for a breathtaking 360-degree view of the skyline. Once you soak in the scenery from the Observation Deck, take an electrifying ride on the Insanity, X-Scream and Big Shot attractions. The Stratosphere Tower & Rides Unlimited Rides Pass lets you ride all night long!
Penn & Teller
Add a little edge to your night of comedy with the acclaimed duo of Penn & Teller. They’ve been performing in their theater at the Rio for more than a decade now – and it shows. “The Bad Boys of Magic” have a rapport that will leave you laughing out loud, while marveling at their astonishing tricks. Get your tickets to this must-see show!
Kick off your last day in Sin City with a spa-cation. Relax your body and soul with a soothing 50-minute Swedish massage. Or get your healthy and radiant glow back with an Elemis Skin Specific Facial. Blending Asian luxury with European style, Mandara Spa is a spectacular facility located inside the Paris Las Vegas.
Are you ready to test your skills in the largest indoor axe range in the nation! If you’re looking for a unique experience on your Las Vegas holiday, it doesn’t get more fun than a visit to Axe Monkeys. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced axe thrower, the staff is ready to help you take aim at 47 different targets.
Dinner at The Buffet at the Bellagio
After all that axe throwing, you’ll be ready for a feast fit for king or queen. Grab a plate and start filling up on Kobe beef, crab legs, sushi and prime rib at The Buffet at the Bellagio. You won’t believe the huge selection available. It’s a little more expensive than your average buffet, but the gourmet fare is well worth the upgrade!
Mystère by Cirque du Soleil
End your Vegas adventure with a breathtaking performance by the world-famous acrobats of Cirque du Soleil. This circus-style show was made for Sin City with elaborate costumes, hilarious comedy and high-energy thrills. Mystère by Cirque du Soleil will take you to new heights – and you’ll be talking about it long after the final curtain comes down on your Vegas vacation.
