Are you planning a trip to Sin City? Amazing idea! It’s the perfect time to visit Las Vegas as COVID restrictions are being lifted, and the place isn’t as crowded as it usually is.
Las Vegas is the second most visited place in America (only behind New York), not just by Americans but by tourists worldwide. The city attracted more than 40 million visitors every year between 2014-2019. Last year, despite the pandemic, 19 million people visited Vegas!
Even if you have visited Vegas before and think you know Sin City, visitors make some common mistakes. So, here are five mistakes you need to avoid to get the most out of your next Las Vegas trip:
1. Not Your Ordinary Trip—Plan and Pack Accordingly
When people think of a Vegas trip, the spontaneity of it is enticing. However, all travel experts will tell you that planning goes a long way. Planning is even more critical if you visit Vegas for a particular occasion, such as spring break or a Bachelor’s party.
So, what exactly planning a Vegas trip entails? Deciding what exactly you want to do and making the appropriate reservations. Besides, when you have a clear plan, you will be able to pack accordingly! There’s so much to do in Vegas that you can’t pack on a whim and be ready for everything.
2. Sleep? Not in Vegas, Baby!
Getting a comfortable room is good but don’t expect to be sleeping much. Besides, Vegas is all about the nightlife, so if you plan to get in bed early, why are you even in Vegas?
Midnight is when nightclubs actually open, so make the most of your time in Vegas and forget to sleep for a few days.
3. Walk the Strip? Don’t Even Think About It!
A common rookie mistake people make is thinking they can walk the Strip. It may look smaller on the maps, but it is actually 6.8kms long! Sure, the Strip is pedestrian-friendly but walking all the way is a huge ask, especially during the day.
There are plenty of transport options, including rail, taxis, trams, and ridesharing apps. However, none of them offer the same convenience as having your car. Consider getting a rental to move around easily and quickly.
If you want to make the trip truly memorable, you can even get luxury cars for rent in Vegas at affordable rates!
4. Go Bar Hopping in Downtown (Not the same as the Strip)
One of the most common mistakes first-time visitors make is thinking that Las Vegas is just the Strip. Granted, the Strip has a lot to offer, but there’s so much more to experience as well. What you can do is go bar hopping Downtown for at least one night of your trip.
Downtown Vegas offers some great bars, and all of them are within walking distance. However, getting from the Strip to Downtown is a ten-minute drive, so having a rental will make the commute so much easier.
5. Explore Vegas and Go Beyond the Strip!
There will be no shortage of nighttime activities in Vegas, especially if you explore both the Strip and Downtown. However, if you’re getting a full-day car rental, put it to good use and go on a road trip!
Vegas is more than just partying, and you can visit the Red Rock Canyon or the Valley of Fire State Park in your rental! If you’re planning to go off-road, our recommendation would be renting the Lamborghini Urus for the day; the world’s first super SUV.
