Pack for Las Vegas Like a Pro

May 16, 2016

While it can be exciting to jump on a plane and fly until you see the neon lights of Las Vegas, be sure you have some of these often overlooked, but very necessary items stowed away in your luggage.

Bring comfortable shoes to walk in. No matter where you go you’re going to be doing some amount of walking and no one wants to be uncomfortable and pack it in early, or be THAT girl t-rexing across the casino floor. Everyone should avoid cheap flip flops that will have your feet aching in no time. If you’re hitting the streets during the day time, be sure to wear something you can comfortably walk in. Hitting the town that night? Ladies, be sure to fit a small pair of flats in your purse if you’re taking on the town in heels. If you didn’t heed my warning, you can always grab a Lyft to your destination. Use code SILVERTON to have it ready to go, just in case.

No matter what your plans are during your stay, be sure that sunscreen is a part of your daytime ensemble.  It’s a desert out here, and that sun can be mighty unforgiving, even if you are hiding underneath a cabana. Plus, a sunburn goes with absolutely nothing that you have packed for taking on the neon lights that night, we can guarantee it. Do yourself a favor and grab some sunglasses too, optimal for the sunshine and hiding your gaze for all of the wonderful people watching you can only get in Sin City.

Bring a light jacket or cover up, yes even with 100 plus degree weather. While the days and possibly nights can be hot, the inside of properties and restaurants can be overly chilly to compensate. Nothing is more unfortunate that expediting a delectable meal on account of goose bumps. Bonus, who doesn’t need a jacket on the plane?

Speaking of the plane, while New York may hold the title as “the city that never sleeps”, Las Vegas is a vivacious runner up. Count on doing most of your sleeping on the plane to maximize your time in the town. Ear plugs and even an eye mask will prove necessary to recharge up in the sky since you won’t be doing too much when you’re hitting the town.

Cash is a must. While most of us are so used to only having plastic on us at all times, tipping is as habitual and expected as breathing in Las Vegas.  While how much and who you tip is as personal as religion and politics, having cash on hand no matter what you decide will prove to helpful when readily available. But be sure to grab you Benjamins before you head out, ATM fees increase drastically the closer you are to the Strip or Downtown.

While some of these items are no brainers, it’s often the obvious that goes overlooked and can make or break the experience you have during your stay in Las Vegas.
