There’s no doubt you can have the vacation of a lifetime in Vegas on a budget. Even the Strip itself is home to miles of affordable accommodation, free tours and offers, plus bargain deals like a $0.99 hot dog + beer to keep you energized in between those all-you-can-eat buffets.
If, however, you’re planning to head there with deeper pockets, or just so happen to get lucky one night at a casino and want to celebrate — there is a whole other side to Sin City that’s oozing with luxurious, high rolling activities for you to explore and enjoy.
One of the most affordable activities you can look to do is put your pedal to the metal at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. For less than 200 bucks, you can get behind the wheel of a Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, Aston Martin, Corvette Z06, Nissan GT-R, or an Audi R8.
The track is 1.2 miles long and features 7 bends, as well as an 1,800ft stretch of straight surface to test out the speed of the vehicle and ramp up the adrenaline.
MGM Beach BBQ
Want to create the ultimate party for you and your friends? If you can get 15 of your crew to spare a grand each of their spending money, you can rent out the entire Mandalay Beach and enjoy a delicious BBQ feast on the sand. The grub is cooked by Chef Sean DiCocco and his team, who will provide you with a comprehensive list of mouthwatering desserts. You’ll also have your own personal waiters, massage corner, outdoor movie theatre, cigar hostess, bar, and complementary flip flops on arrival.
Bellagio Fountain Button
If you’re looking to woo your loved one with the ultimate romantic gesture, be sure to spend an evening at the Hyde Bellagio, where your SO can have the honor of switching on the casino’s famous waterfront patio fountains for $250,000.
The Bellagio will send a 30-liter bottle of Ace and Spades bubbly complete with a gold-plated box to your outside VIP table. Your partner will then be able to pick a song of their choice from a list, then hit the button to activate over 4,500 lights and 1,200 magical water fountains.
Moët Ice Magnum Gun
Head to Drai’s Beachclub inside the Cromwell if you want to party to the latest hits with your fellow beach buddies. If you’re looking for an extravagant way to have fun and get drunk while you’re there, try out their Moët Ice Magnum Spray Gun package. You’ll get 2 big bottles with 2 gold-plated machine guns to keep yourselves on your toes. The package costs $3,000.
Looking to take in the Nevada sights with somewhere spectacular to unwind afterwards? Be sure to book yourself a helicopter trip over the Valley of Fire State Park for a breathtaking experience that you’ll never forget. For $3,499, you’ll be swept away on a 2-hour trip which incorporates a Silent Savasana yoga class that’s only accessible by helicopter. The magic then concludes with champagne and a glorious flight over Downtown and the Las Vegas Strip.
The 777 Burger
There are thousands of great burger joints in Vegas, but none of them quite live up to the luxurious standard like the Burger Brasserie. The restaurant is home to a highly acclaimed burger which is made with the very best cut of Kobe beef underneath a bed of succulent Maine lobster, caramelized onions and 100-year-old balsamic vinegar.
The mouthwatering work of culinary art will set you back at $777, but it comes with a generous bottle of Dom Perignon champers to wash it down with afterwards.
Gold Champagne Cocktail
Be sure to stop by Caesars Palace for a lavish nightcap at the Fizz during your stay in Vegas. It has an impeccable selection of exotic drinks and cocktails; however, the effervescent signature champagne cocktail is what draws the high rollers and those with rich tastes.
The drink is made with Dom Perignon Rose Champagne with a smooth blend of aged Grand Marnier, along with a decorative rose petal and 24kt gold flakes. The grand concoction costs $2,500, so be sure to take baby sips!
Another one for the “gold diggers” out there! The Spa at the Encore always has a wonderful selection of facilities for you, your friends, or loved ones to unwind in, but it also has some of the most lavish treatments you’ll probably ever come across. One of them is the 24-Karat Gold Facial which was originally intended for royal members.
Now however, any guest with $420 to spare can get a radiating glow and feel like a queen. The treatment lasts for 80 minutes and will nourish your skin into a satin smooth finish.
Wynn Hotel & Casino Wedding Package
If you’ve come to Vegas to tie the knot and want the most elegant package on offer, be sure to opt for the Elegant Affair ceremony at the Wynn. The package includes personal chauffeur and collection from the airport, 2 nights in the Fairway Villa with multiple spa and salon treatments, private golf caddy, tons of bubbly, fine dining courses, and matching bathrobes.
On the big day, the couple are treated to the full works: starting with breakfast in bed, bridal makeup and hair artists, a private ceremony with exquisite floral arrangements, and of course the ceremony itself. There is plenty more to follow and look forward to in between, but if you want to invite any guests to your big day – you’ll need to add a bit more to the $23k budget this will cost on its own!
Unless you’re heading to Sin City with $100k+ or end up striking a goldmine in the poker rooms — it’s unlikely you’ll be able to complete this entire bucket list. Nevertheless, there are an abundance of other luxurious things to do and see in Vegas, and of course, much cheaper options as well! Regardless of whether you’re going to be spending $50 or $5,000 on single activities, the memories you’ll make there will be priceless.
