so-many

Ever since our first girls trip to California in 2013, (years before this travel blog was born), I’ve been wanting to plan our next trip. In 2016, after much deliberation, we headed to the ultimate place for a girls trip: Las Vegas! With only 4 days to spare, we made sure we had a jam packed itinerary.

DAY 1

dsc00065Arrived in Las Vegas at 7am, called an Uber and headed straight to the hotel, SLS Las Vegas.

dsc00091dsc00085Once we dropped off our luggage at the front desk, we had breakfast at the Northside Cafe which is located inside the hotel. Perfect!

14292377_1196846903707831_2786736013057885437_nRefueled and ready to shop! Around 10am, we headed out to Trader Joes located at S. Decatur Blvd. since it was the closest one around our hotel. (Can you tell we don’t have any Trader Joes in Hawaii? Look at our full cart haha!) We also went to Las Vegas North Premium Outlets. After our shopping, we headed back to the hotel around 3pm and relaxed until our first activity in Las Vegas.

dsc00135At 6pm, we were picked up by a complimentary shuttle and headed to Maverick Helicopters! Such an exciting experience seeing Las Vegas at night. Beautiful lights, beautiful city! If you are in Vegas for at least a night, set aside time to see the nightlife from above.

dsc00166-2Finishing our amazing helicopter tour, we headed back to the hotel and had a quick dinner at Umami Burger. This is one of our favorite spots for burgers and fries when visiting the Mainland U.S. If you haven’t tried it before, definitely grab a bite, it’s a must!

Right after dinner, we got ready and headed to Drai’s Beachclub & Nightclub which is located right on the strip. We were there for Fetty Wap’s (a famous American rapper/artist) concert! From 11pm to 4am. We danced the night away.

DAY 2

dsc00169The following day, we woke up around 11am, and purchased our monorail tickets for the next few days to get around Las Vegas. Definitely recommend the monorail pass as it will save you some money (and time) instead of using an uber or taxi. The Las Vegas Monorail connects to some hotels along the strip making it easier to get to restaurants, hotels, and casinos on the strip.

dsc00177dsc00170 dsc00227Being that we woke up a little late, we happened to skip breakfast. We headed straight to lunch at Lobster Me located at Miracle Mile Shops inside Planet Hollywood. Again, a must place to grab a bite, especially their delicious lobster roll!

dsc00233Sugar Factory was our next stop after lunch. They are famous for their fabulous drinks that are served in a tall plastic bottle! In Las Vegas, you’re allowed to have an alcoholic drink in hand all day and night while walking around in public areas!

With drinks in hand, we were ready to check out hotels on the strip. We found ourselves walking through a few beautiful hotels like the Wynn, Cosmopolitan, and also checked out the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens at Bellagio.

dsc00354At 7:30pm, we took an uber outside the strip to check out a unique themed bar called The Golden Tiki. They have some really delicious drinks on the menu. It such a great time!

dsc00395Since our last meal was at Lobster Me, we decided to go back to our hotel for dinner and enjoy the fleeing downtime. 800 Degrees caught our eye right away with their “Create your own pizza” sign!

DAY 3

dsc00404On our third day, we had an open itinerary and decided to spend it walking around the strip.

dsc00417 dsc00441 dsc00454img_0316img_0338A few hours of walking later, we were starving! We ate lunch at The Buffet which is located inside Wynn hotel. The food was great but the sight was beautiful!

dsc00466dsc00513dsc00511dsc00517 dsc00525We continued walking around through more hotels and ended up at The Venetian. While at The Venetian, we experienced the indoor Gondola Ride (seats 4 people max). What an amazing 15 minute ride! We were given blue roses before going on the gondola and our guide sang in french! Marvelous & Romantic!

dsc00545At exactly 7:30pm, we took an uber to downtown Las Vegas, Fremont Street. We had an 8pm activity with Slotzilla  a zipline over Fremont Street. This was such a cool experience!

img_0425dsc00547 dsc00561We ended our night at Gold Spike which is located a few blocks away from Fremont Street. A fun place for adults where you can play human size chess, beer pong, and other fun games in Gigantic Size. Inside Gold Spike, we ate at a place called FiddleStix, open 24 hours!

DAY 4

dsc00598On our last full day, we decided to walk around the strip more and visit other hotels. Hotels we walked through were New York New York, Luxor, Monte Carlo, and Excalibur. We rounded it up with a brunch at the Excalibur Buffet.

dsc00617 After freshening up at the hotel, we rode the monorail to The Linq for our sunset High Roller ride.

img_0462Highly recommend doing the High Roller – You can see the city views of Las Vegas with unlimited alcohol drinks from the bar inside. Great deal for an alll you can drink spot with magnificnet views!

dsc00659
Then, we were off to dinner (or breakfast for dinner) at Serendipity located right outside of Ceasar’s Palace. Amazing place to dine in! They’re famous for their frozen hot chocolate.

img_0551To end our last night with a bang, we watched a late night show in Las Vegas, Mystère by Cirque du Soleil at Treasure Island. Amazing show!

Although our itinerary looked like we did it all, we had a few things that we didn’t get to do such as taking a photo in front of the Las Vegas Welcome Sign and watching the Bellagio fountain at night. Overall, we had an amazing four days and we can’t wait to go back!
