10 Things To Do In Vegas

Las Vegas, NV

This post is sponsored by The Venetian Resort Las Vegas and ShopStyle.

I just got home from a whirlwind 48-hour trip to Vegas and wanted to share everything I did! I hadn’t been to Vegas in years prior to this trip so it was a lot of fun to be back. The Venetian Resort Las Vegas was kind enough to host me for this trip, and they really pulled out all of the stops. There is SO much more to Vegas than you’d think, and I’m excited to share what some of my favorite activities were!

10 Things To Do In Vegas

1. Book a room at The Venetian Resort

The property is gorgeous, has SO many amazing restaurants to choose from, and excellent service from start to finish. We stayed in The Palazzo section of the resort which was so nice.

2. Take a gondola ride around the property

There’s an indoor and outdoor gondola area, but if weather permits, I recommend doing the short 12 minute outdoor ride.

3. Head to Bouchon for breakfast

I was blown away by the food quality at this restaurant. You feel as though you’ve been transported to a French cafe – and they have every pastry you could ever dream of on the menu. Don’t leave without ordering the beignets!

4. Spend the afternoon by the pool

Even in November, Thomas and I were able to throw on our suits and lay out by the pool! It was MUCH needed Vitamin D and I love that they have so many different pools and chairs for you to relax at.

5. Get dim sum at Mott 32

This restaurant is so gorgeous – it’s dark and sophisticated. The food is unreal – you can’t leave without ordering the duck!

6. Shop ’til you drop

Vegas is one of my favorite places to shop. No really it is! I actually bought my very first Chanel in Vegas. There’s truly a store for everyone – so take your time strolling through the beautiful Venetian square and pop into all of the shops along the way.

7. Indulge in pizza at Sixth+Mill

If you’re in the mood for lunch or dinner in between activities, head to the square where you can indulge in delicious pizza, pasta, and Italian cuisine while people watching and getting serenaded by opera singers and musicians.

8. Go to the Atomic Saloon Show

This is the #2 show in Vegas right now for a reason…it was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. SO entertaining, absolutely hilarious, and a MUST if you’re visiting Vegas.

9. Get cocktails at Electra

This swanky cocktail bar makes a delicious martini- and is such a great spot for a pre or post dinner drink.

10. Dance the night away at TAO and/or Lavo

Both venues are some of my favorites (they’re also in NYC!) and have not only great food, but a great ambiance. You’re destined to have a fabulous time at either one!

If you’re craving a warm weather, fun getaway – I highly recommend booking a trip to Vegas and staying at The Venetian Resort! It really is the ideal trip any time of year – because there’s ALWAYS something going on. Thomas and I are already scheming our next trip back there!!! I linked everything I wore on our trip + a few other items that would be PERFECT below!

    Fun ideas that aren’t your typical “clubbing” or “booze fest” in Vegas! Sometimes I feel like the Vegas culture is over looked by gambling and drinking when yes it is apart of it, but there’s also so much more! Next time I go I will definitely use your recommendations! Could you add these to your travel app? XXOO

    Hi Kat! I’ve been following you for a while and you’re hands down one of my favorites on my feed. You truly are such an inspiration to not only myself, but so many others. The way you carry yourself and how hard you work is incredible and your blog posts are so addicting to read!! I can only hope when I am your age that I am half as successful as you are. Keep being Ms. boss lady cause you are absolutely killing it. (P.s. I’m half Japanese too!)
