Planning A Las Vegas Vacation
If you are planning a fabulous Las Vegas vacation, then you are not alone. Every day, tourists pour into the Las Vegas strip for gambling, entertainment and plenty of shopping. For the adventurous, there is also skydiving lessons for both indoor and outdoor learners.
When planning a Las Vegas vacation, you first matter at hand will be to set a budget. Hotels are expensive, especially if they are located on the Las Vegas strip. Additionally, the best accommodations book up fast, so make your reservations early. Some are fully booked for up to one year in advance, so log on to your favorite hotel’s website or call and inquire about making a reservation.
Once your travel date and accommodations have been decided, you will want to choose a mode of transportation. If you plan to drive, you will either want to make arrangements for a rental car or have your automobile checked out by a local mechanic to ensure it is safe for the road trip. Many people overlook this step, but it is very important if you plan to drive. If you are planning to arrange for air or rail travel, make your reservations early to ensure that you will have a seat. You can use your cell phone on trains to make sure your transportation is waiting for you upon arrival, including either a rental car or chauffeur. If your train is running late, keeping your chauffeur updated may be the difference in additional fees or the normal rate. Air travel is different, however, as cell phones are not permitted to be used on airplanes. If you know that your flight is delayed, try calling ahead from the airport to confirm transportation before you arrive in Las Vegas.
If lady luck is your calling, a Las Vegas vacation is just the ticket. Casinos are open 24/7 and feature a variety of games, including both table and slot machines. If you would like to attend a show while on your Las Vegas vacation, order your tickets in advance. You can either pick them up at the ticket office on the day of the show or have them mailed to your home if there is enough time for them to arrive prior to your departure date.
For the daredevil, there are indoor and outdoor skydiving lessons to be enjoyed on your Las Vegas vacation. An indoor lesson includes a brief training session, which is followed by a wind tunnel experience. After gearing up in the proper skydiving suit, goggles, helmet, ear plugs, gloves and shoes, individuals are placed inside of a wind tunnel where they will face computer generated winds of up to 120mph. As the student is lifted 6-12 feet into the air, the winds give them the feeling of an authentic skydiving experience. Indoor skydiving lessons are ideal for anyone on a Las Vegas vacation who wants to try skydiving, but who has a fear of heights.
If you are planning a Las Vegas vacation as part of your wedding and/or honeymoon experience, you will be pleasantly greeted by an array of chapels and special rates for newlyweds. Additional information is available by calling the Las Vegas Visitor’s Center or Chamber of Commerce. Whatever your reason for planning a Las Vegas vacation, this is one city that will not disappoint.
