Are you getting ready to hit the vibrant strip of Las Vegas? Planning a bachelor or bachelorette party or going to Las Vegas to try your hand at lady luck? For whatever reason you are visiting this exciting famed city, you will need to bring some essential items along with you.
Las Vegas is one of the most popular gambling hot spots in the world and it is also majorly known for its Broadway productions, dancing waterfalls, cheap late night buffets and themed hotels. If you want to gamble, this is the place to put on your travel bucket list. You haven’t lived until you’ve played a game of blackjack on a Las Vegas table. Wondering what to bring along with you for this fun-filled escape? Not to worry, here are 5 essential items to consider and put on your Las Vegas packing list.
Dress Up To The Nines
If you have been looking for the type of vacation where you can dress up and dazzle, this is the place to do it. Everyone dresses up for the evening in Las Vegas and you can wear anything from a casual jeans and nice shirt and Armani suit to short mini-skirts and gala dresses. Bring along casual and night time wear. Anything goes in Las Vegas so don’t be afraid to show your style!
Comfortable Shoes Are A Blessing
While you might want to wear your new Prada heels in Las Vegas, you might want to rethink it. Make sure you have a comfortable pair of shoes so you can walk up and down the colorful Vegas strip and visit a variety of themed hotel casinos. There is transportation available but for the most part, you will be walking.
Sunscreen, Lip Balm and Moisturizer
Let’s face it, Las Vegas is in the desert and the dry air will get to you. You may spend most your time playing games of blackjack and video poker in the casinos where there is air conditioning, but you will certainly feel a blast of hot dry air when you leave. Prepare and protect your skin from the shock and wear sunscreen, lip balm and apply moisturizer where needed. Take a tube of hand and body cream in your purse or travel bag and be prepared.
Tote Bag and Swimsuits Should Be High On Your Packing List
Make sure you bring along a tote or beach bag where you can carry water bottles, iPods, MP3 players, sunglasses, books, towels etc. This will help you a great deal if you are going to another hotel’s pool or visiting friends with a pool. Bring two swimsuits so that when one is drying in the Las Vegas heat, you always have a clean one to put on!
Be Prepared For Winter Months
If you are traveling to Las Vegas in the winter months, you may need a jacket. The desert does get cold and the night time temperatures can go below 30 degrees so bring along a sweater or light jacket to keep you cozy.
These are just a few essential items and remember to bring obvious ones like sunglasses (protect your peepers!), cameras, batteries, extra memory cards and necessary medications that you take on a daily basis. Now it’s time to enjoy the bright lights of Las Vegas!
