Vegas Bucket List

545864_10150600759776504_454789651_nWith our trip now only a couple of months away I feel like I can finally get a little excited and start planning. We have been a couple of times before as have Emma and Chris who we’re traveling with however there’s always something new to see so I thought I’d start a bucket list to ensure I tick off the ‘must do’ stuff this time. Here’s my current list but I intend to expand upon it until we go, if there’s anything you’d personally recommend we see or do please let me know, we might have already covered it but it’s always possible we missed it entirely!!

Minus 5 Ice Lounge

I only found out about this recently and it’s top of my list, looks so cool (no pun intended) I’ve never been to the ice bar in London but with 2 on our doorstep we can’t miss Minus 5!

Beatles LOVE

I’ve seen this show before but Lee hasn’t so I want to take him. I’m not a Cirque fan but this was fantastic! Difficult to describe, I think it’s a ‘you had to be there’ situation, Considering seeing Elton John too as he’s the only big time headliner on while we’re there.

High Roller

Basically the London Eye Vegas style. I believe it’s the tallest one in the world and a new addition since our last visit. I’m not about to get in a helicopter (scaredy cat) so this will give me the best view of the strip I can hope for.

Fremont Street

Can you believe we haven’t done this already? I’m told we need to dedicate a whole evening to it. I have no idea what to expect other than cheap drinks and a light show.

North Premium Outlets

Vegas is all about the shopping but this time we’re driving out to find EVEN MORE!! The Kate Spade store wont know what’s hit it when Emma and I arrive. Lee and Chris are excited about the TAG outlet.

Vegas Sign

Another attraction we haven’t yet visited but it’s a bit far out, this time we’re hiring a car to hit the spots we’ve missed. I can’t believe I don’t have a picture in front of this yet!

Hoover Dam

Again something I’ve seen but Lee hasnt, I’m not massively interested in The Grand Canyon (I know, shoot me!) but The Hoover Dam is pretty impressive and it’s kind of awesome to cross over the state border to Arizona while you’re there.

This post will be ever changing so anything you think I need to add to it.. let me know!

    Parasol Down bar at the Wynn. It’s a gorgeous cocktail bar and you can sit outside and watch the giant waterfall….with a little surprise if you wait long enough.

    I’m going back to LV at the end of March and cannot wait either!! Sounds like you have lots to see. We have also booked to see Elton John… should be amazing! I can also recommend ‘Battlefield Vegas’ to shoot some guns, such a great experience and also the Mandarin Bar at the Mandarin Oriental hotel – stunning view of the LV strip at night and yummy cocktails! Hope you all have a great time.

    I got married there in 2013, only spent 4 nights there. Loved Freemont St. You’ll be surprised how small the sign actually is 🙂
    Crazy place, unlike anywhere else! I’m very jealous!

    Love Vegas!! We got the Deuce bus to the Vegas Sign. It does stop and turn back round before the sign, but it’s only about a 10 minute walk (if that) when you get of the bus 🙂 xx

      Thanks! I think we’re getting a car to go out to the outlets etc but I’ll bear that in mind in case our plans change x

    Don’t forget to check out Sprinkles and Kitson at the High Roller area. Also the new SLS casino is fab to visit it’s just choosing between Umami Burger (best burger my mum has ever had she said!) and The Griddle Cafe, it’s famous for it’s pancakes but we went for other options and the portions are massive!

      ahhh I had no idea there was a Kitson there! I’ve wanted to go to Kitson since SJP did a line with them.. god that must have been maybe 6 or 7 years ago :O lol – will look up the restaurants too, thanks for the advice x

    If you’re feeling adventurous, be sure to ride the roller coaster at NYNY. Good call on checking out the High Roller at the Linq! While you’re there definitely pop into Brooklyn Bowl for a concert! So much to do there, I lived there all of my life and there are still things I want to do! Have a wonderful time!

    So jealous, I want to go again! This may not be something you’re in to at all, but we went to the gun store which has a shooting range and we shot real guns. Have a great time!

    If you’re in the market for an AHHHmazing buffet, try the Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan- We went around brunch time and it was fantastic 🙂

    Also, if you were impressed with the Hoover Dam, I think you’d really enjoy the Grand Canyon!
