August 1st is Girl Friends Day, not a romantic event, but a time to get together for fun and relaxation. Las Vegas has long been a popular destination for exactly that. So gather up your best girls because you deserve a getaway!
1. Relax with a Spa Day
Before you take on all that the City of Sin has to offer, re-energize at one of the opulent spas for a little pampering. Slip into comfort at Sahra Spa at Cosmopolitan where you (and a friend or two) can rotate between heated stones, whirlpools, steam rooms and loungers. Or grab a few friends and head to Qua Baths and Spa at Caesars Palace to enjoy the Roman baths or the Arctic Ice Room.
2. View the Iconic Las Vegas
When you come to Las Vegas, whether for the first time or the fiftieth time, the iconic Strip is a must see. For a unique view of the bright neon lights take to the sky aboard a comfy ECO-Star helicopter on a Vegas Nights tour. You’ll experience breathtaking views of the mega-resorts on the Strip and historic downtown when the lights are bright and the city is alive with energy.
3. Get a Little Wild at a Male Revue
It may be a girls getaway but that doesn’t mean having a few guys in the mix wouldn’t be welcome. Las Vegas is home to some of the best male revues in the world. The infamous Chippendales headlines the revues but the Aussies are also out in force with Thunder from Down Under and Aussie Heat. Take your pick or, if you’re truly adventurous, see all three!
4. Experience the Production of Cirque du Soleil
Want a show with less skin? Cirque du Soleil offers a variety of excellent acrobatic productions where everyone can find something to enjoy. You could even make a full night of it with a package deal that features Cirque shows like KÀ or The Beatles™ LOVE™ paired with a Vegas night flight over the Strip.
5. All You Can Eat!
Vegas is known for its night life, but also for its food! The amount of restaurants and buffets in town can satisfy even the most eclectic palette. The Lip Smacking Foodie Tour is the ultimate experience for food lovers. Enjoy VIP-style seating at four of the top restaurants on the Strip where you’ll enjoy signature dishes and great Las Vegas sights along the way.
6. Become a High Roller
Ever since The LINQ Promenade opened, the High Roller has become a “thing to do” on anyone’s Las Vegas list. At 550 feet, with 360-degree views of the Strip, the High Roller is known as the World’s Tallest Observation Wheel. The spacious cabins offer unique experiences for guests including a Happy Half Hour open bar to make memories during your Vegas vacation.
7. Have a Grand Adventure
Las Vegas has so many things to see and do outside of the city itself. Just a few hours away sits the iconic Grand Canyon. To really put a stamp on your girls getaway, jump aboard a Maverick Helicopters flight for sweeping views of Lake Las Vegas, Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, and of course the Grand Canyon. You can even descend 3,500 feet down into the canyon on the Wind Dancer tour. Adventures together last a lifetime.
What girls’ getaway would be complete without a shopping trip? Get an amazing outfit to go clubbing later that night, or a beautiful dress for a fancy dinner. The Forum Shops in Caesars Palace, the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, or the Fashion Show Mall are full of different retailers to scratch that shopping itch.
