Las Vegas is a fabulous holiday destination for the female traveler, whether traveling alone, with a friend, or in a larger group. Vegas has much more to offer than you might initially think, so don’t make the mistake of assuming it is just gambling and strip shows for men. In fact, with so much to do and see, women can enjoy the city just as much as men – and maybe even more.

The casinos

Las Vegas is most famous for its casinos and nightlife. Try The Cosmopolitan with its floor-to-ceiling glass offering views of the Strip, the elegant Encore Las Vegas, The Venetian with its stunning architecture, the sleek and sophisticated Aria Resort and Casino, or the gambler’s Mecca: MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. A must-see is the Bellagio Casino, which has a 13,000 plus square foot conservatory and botanical gardens with specially designed lighting, theatrically arranged gazebos, ponds, bridges and water features.

Pools, parties and spas

If partying is your scene, try a pool party at Rehab at the Hard Rock Hotel, or Wet Republic at MGM Grand. You will find some amazing, luxurious outdoor pools in Vegas, so if this is your thing, book a hotel with a relaxing pool and pack plenty of bikinis. You will also be able to take advantage of some wonderful spa treatments. Nearly every resort has a luxurious spa, and you don’t have to be staying there to pay to use a resort’s services.

Hotel accommodation

Women on their own should avoid cheap rooms located off the Strip, as the hotel could be located in a questionable area. Do your research and book a reputable hotel. Consider a resort stay at Bluegreen Club 36 Las Vegas. Blue Green Resorts offer comfort, quality, relaxation and luxury, and Bluegreen Club 36 is just minutes away from the casinos and entertainment of the Strip. You can find out more and plan a trip at the Blue Green Resorts website.

Explore Vegas

Wear some comfy shoes and explore all the resorts on the four-mile Strip, taking advantage of free trams, moving walkways and monorails. Go shopping at the designer outlets, or visit the Las Vegas Premium Outlets via the Gold Line bus, which departs from the Strip. Downtown or ‘’old Vegas’’ is Fremont Street; food is cheaper and gambling odds are better than those on the Strip.

Nighttime entertainment

Look out for special offers for women, such as free drinks or preferential entry to a nightclub. See a show, whether it is a Broadway musical, a concert, magician, or comedian. Book in advance, or approach one of the booths on the Strip or Downtown to see what tickets they have left for a particular night.

There are plenty of exciting things in Vegas for the woman traveler, whether she wants to party, gamble, explore, or do something entirely different. Book a break in Vegas and find out what else it has to offer besides the fabulous casinos and show those men how women can have a good time.
