His and Hers: The Ultimate 24 Hours in Vegas

When it comes to spending 24 hours in Las Vegas with friends, guys and gals can have some differences of opinion in everything from the packing to the drinking. We brought in two of our Vegas gurus, one a man and the other a woman, to get their takes on what constitutes the Ultimate 24 Hours in Vegas!

Packing

She says: It doesn’t matter if you want to pack light or bring two extra-large bags; there are people who are paid to help you lug them around Vegas. Bring the essentials though: sun protection, lip balm, pepper spray, a portable phone charger, collapsible flats and snacks! Don’t forget a swim suit and some outdoor excursion clothes. Jeans and clothes-toed shoes will prevail. Pack a cute cocktail dress and remember to leave some space to bring keepsakes back with you. With the shopping in Las Vegas, you’re almost guaranteed to find a thing or two you can’t live without.

He says: The only things you need to bring with you are a driver’s license, cash and a smile… oh, and definitely a pair of swim trunks.

Lodging

He says: Staying in Downtown Las Vegas means more singles in your pocket for later. So consider Golden Nugget, which sits in the middle of Fremont Street Experience and boasts one of the best pools in town complete with blackjack tables and bikini-clad dealers. A Saturday afternoon arrival means you have just enough time to check in, drop off the bags and slug a handful of Mai Tais poolside before dinner.

She says: The M offers 4.5-star amenities with no resort fees in a secluded location with beautiful views of The Strip. What more could you ask for? If you’re driving in from California, The M Resort is one of the first places you will see driving into the Vegas valley. It’s more cost effective than most of the other resorts in Vegas. The rooms are equipped with high-speed Internet, a 42-inch LCD television, double sinks, a TV in the bathroom and more.

Dinner and a Show

She says: You can never go wrong with dinner at The Venetian Grand Canal Shoppes. AquaKnox screams sophistication and vibrancy. Enjoy fresh seafood (flown in daily) or the perfect cut of steak. From caviar and crab stuffed Maine lobster to Fillet mignon and Tuscan potatoes, they’ll have exactly what you’re looking for. Don’t you dare forget to indulge in the pumpkin cheesecake or Belgian chocolate s’mores either.

It’s almost a requirement to see a Cirque du Soleil show when you’re in Las Vegas. KÀ is wild and dynamic. They have a stage that rotates 360 degrees and a wheel of death! This acrobatic act is matchless and has tremendous ratings for a reason. Don’t miss the chance to see an incredible cast put on a jaw-dropping performance.

He says: Dinner with the guys is simple. Forget about Michelin Stars. Forget about celebrity chefs. Just walk across the street to Pizza Rock and order the Mob Boss, a massive pie on focaccia bread piled high with salami, pepperoni, bacon, Italian sausage and all the fixings. If you manage to stumble over before 6 p.m., you can snag some $4 PBR tall boys and an order of meatballs for the same price.

In order to avoid the looks of disgust from the significant other, you’ll need to return with some nugget of a normal vacation tale. Trade in a couple hours of roulette for a Cirque du Soleil show. Ká at MGM Grand is like a Bruce Lee kung fu flick meets Mary Lou Retton.

After Party

He says: The show will let out around 9 p.m. The night is young! Since you’re already at MGM Grand, you might as well stick around for the nightly rager at Hakkasan. With five floors of DJ’s and party goers, every member of the crew can find something of interest. Spring for the bottle service as the private booth doubles as base camp when launching expeditions into the scantily clad wilderness. Be sure to leave a little in the tank for the next day.

She says: End the night lounging in a beautiful scene at The Chandelier Lounge inside The Cosmopolitan. Don’t leave without sampling a glass of Forbidden Fruit, a signature drink that you’ll “trade your place in the Garden of Eden for.” Bask in the splendor of being inside a tri-level chandelier. It’s perfect for taking pictures with your friends and mingling until the sun comes up. Another perk to this distinguishing venue is that it is a 24/7 operation. There’s no last call here.

Daytime Outings

She says: The drive from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon is about eight hours roundtrip. You know what takes only four hours and is way more thrilling? A helicopter sightseeing tour that lands in the Grand Canyon, serves you champagne and snacks, shows you Lake Mead, the Hoover Dam, an extinct volcano and the Strip.

He says: Hope you didn’t party too hard last night and have enough left in the tank for a round of golf in the morning. Golfing in Las Vegas is a memorable experience thanks to the numerous courses, many of which land on “Top Courses” lists every year. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen, and sweat out last night’s debauchery. If you schedule a tee time early in the day, you’ll have enough time to shower and change clothes before check out.
