Hi there! I didn't realize how busy I would be upon returning from vacation. But I'm finally back on my regular schedule (thanks to the recent time change). While away, my cousins and I came across a lot of hit and miss situations. So I decided to put together a little a guide for those of you considering visiting Vegas during Halloween.
Here's what we learned...
I loved vacationing with my cousins. They mean so much to me and I am thankful for the experience. I hope you all had fun & spooky Halloween! I'm jealous I didn't get to go trick-or-treating this year. But will definitely make up for it next year.
1. Don't bother buying tickets to any main events unless you plan on reserving a VIP section. The clubs get entirely too packed and I myself need room to breathe.
extra plus: the VIP tickets will also let you bypass the long lines.
2. Bring multiple costumes! It’s more fun that way :)
3. If you are with a big group skip splitting up into many taxis and upgrade to limo service. This makes rides to further destinations way more fun! and you can bargain down the price..
4. Downtown goes all out for Halloween while there were very few people dressed up on the main strip. Weird, I know! But I promise it's worth the drive.
5. Buy pizza before you go out for the night. That way when you return at 4 am there's a yummy snack waiting for you. I feel like I ate pizza breakfast, lunch and dinner all weekend long.
6. Make sure to set aside time to visit some of the pricier restaurants. We ate sushi Saturday night and had brunch the following day at Mesa Grill. Mmmm... I'm still craving Bobby Flay's mango glazed bacon!
7. My feet were killing me by the end of the trip and I didn't even wear heels. I definitely recommend leaving uncomfortable shoes at home. You can thank me later.
