I hope everyone is doing well. I went to Vegas for a week. I paid under $150 round trip. I flew Spirit and American Airlines. I noticed that Spirit did block the middle seat (Not sure if it was just my flight or their policy). However, American Airlines did not. We were required to wear our masks with the exception of eating or drinking. I experienced on time departures for both flights and had no issues with either airline!
I went for ten days and it did not even feel like it was COVID-19. I did notice most people on the strip did comply with mask requirements, but it was still fairly crowded on the strip. I do know November is usually a cold month for Vegas, but I had nothing but sunny and hot weather! I was really lucky honestly. That is why I always tell people, If you see a good deal, take it! I am not saying travel when it is hurricane season, but you know what I mean <3
As far as entertainment, the shows and plays are currently still closed. Bars are open with social distancing considered. I had no issues finding liquor or booze on the strip. All clubs and lounges were still closed when I went two weeks ago.I visited Hershey’s world and got a S’More. It was huge! Honestly, I could have shared it with another person. It costs about $11 with tax. You can customize and create your own S’More. I got the originally Hershey’s milk chocolate one.
As I walked the strip, I noticed a lot of time share companies out! I want to warn you, they are very aggressive! There was one guy that was nice and because I did not have any plans, I did attend the timeshare in exchange for a gift. The gift was definitely worth extending the timeshare presentation.
The presentation lasted about an hour. After declining the timeshare, I was given my gift. The gift I was given was two tickets to The Madame Tussauds Museum ($70 value), gondola ride at the Venetian for two ($50 retail value), and lastly dinner at Buddy V’s for two! The dinner at Buddy V’s consisted of a three course meal, which I thought was quite generous. I was able to walk into Buddy V’s without a reservation and got seated right away!
What’s Vegas without a trip to Hell’s Kitchen? Of course, I got the beef Wellington. 10/10!
I have noticed that eating out multiple times per day can get a bit costly. Las Vegas use to have some of the best buffets at affordable prices but they are currently all closed (Due to Covid-19). However, you can cut back on spending on meals but even buying fruit or breakfast from a store like Walgreens!
Walgreens and CVS is all over the strip. Vegas is really what you make it. If you want to be on a budget, you can most definitely! If you want to splurge, you can! It solely depends on your personal preference. If you locate Linq Hotel, I noticed the promenade had so many affordable and quality food options!
I am a big fan of Lisa Vanderpump so I decided to visit her garden inspired restaurant inside of Caesar’s palace. The ambiance was very nice and intimate. Although I was able to walk right in, I would recommend making reservations just incase! It was such a unique experience. I would highly suggest visiting! I ordered the cheeseburger sliders for appetizer and they were really delicious! They were $15. I know that is expensive for two mini burgers but I honestly think it is worth the experience! Besides, the burgers were very flavorful. She has quite an extensive cocktail menu!
As you can see, it was crowded as usual. I did notice a lot of great food deals over there compared to the strip. If you plan on visiting Las Vegas, make sure you check out Freemont St.! Affordable eats and overall a very different experience you get compared to the strip. A trip to Freemont Street is a Vegas stable. A MUST visit
