May is a jam-packed month of fun in Vegas. As the weather heats up so does the entertainment. This month, enjoy DJs, wild pool parties, summer concerts, hilarious comedians and more. Here’s what to do in May in Vegas:
Don’t forget, Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13. If you’re still in need of a gift, plenty of Vegas’ restaurants will be serving special Mother’s Day brunches including:
The Kitchen at Atomic
Trevi at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace
Cleo at SLS
La Cave Wine & Food Hideaway at Wynn Las Vegas
You can always pair Mother’s Day brunch with one of Vegas’ award-winning shows like Menopause the Musical, Le Reve - The Dream, Donny & Marie Osmond and more. Cap off the day with a spa visit to Mandara Spa at Paris Las Vegas.
