Vegas rocks, but if you’ve never been, it can be a bit overwhelming. Here are some tips to help you THRIVE while in Sin City:
10. Drink lots of water – You’re in the desert. It’s super dry. Chances are you may partake in a cocktail or two…many. Do yourself a favor – hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
9. Bring a Jacket – Yes, Vegas is in the desert. Yes, it can get hot out on the strip. But, inside, the casinos love to crank the A/C.
8. Catch a ride with Uber or Lyft – You’ll save a few bucks on the cost of a taxi.
7. Set a budget – Whether you love gambling, shopping or fine dining, Vegas has it all. Set a daily budget and stick to it.
