A Very Vegas Holiday Season

What could be better than spending the holidays surrounded by your entire extended family, shoveling snow, and dealing with the mall crowds as you try to finish your last minute Christmas shopping? Skipping all of that and spending the holidays in VEGAS! For those searching for a getaway from the stresses of the holiday season or just looking to experience a different kind of holiday, Las Vegas is the perfect destination. Check out our SmarterVegas.com guide to having the best getaway in Vegas during the Holidays.
The best deals on hotels and shows can be found on Thanksgiving weekend. While most people are traveling all over the country for the holiday, not many are heading to Vegas. If you¹re looking for a different kind of Thanksgiving celebration sans family or if your family wants to just let loose and have an unconventional day of thanks, plan your trip during this weekend and you can get a great bang for your buck. When hotels aren¹t booked solid on weekends like Thanksgiving, a quick inquiry at the front desk about a free upgrade can often get you a better room for no extra charge.  If you¹re looking for a really impressive Thanksgiving meal, there are countless world-class restaurants that offer their own impressive versions of the traditional Thanksgiving meal. For a more budget friendly feast, famous Vegas Buffets offer turkey and all the fixings but at really great prices.
Christmas is another great time to visit Las Vegas. If you need an escape from the big family Christmas, consider heading to Sin City for the few days before and after December 24th. Although The Strip is actually quite busy on Christmas Day every year, you can experience shows and events that don¹t happen at any other time of the year. Hotels and Casinos always try to out-do each other with holiday lights and decorations so even if you¹ve been to Vegas before, you¹ve never seen them like this. Another exciting sight in Vegas around Christmas is Ethel M Chocolate Factory¹s garden. Decked out in holiday lights, chocolate houses and sculptures, and visits from Santa Claus, this is one of the best things to do with the whole family. Holiday shows that run only during the month of December are also not to be missed. Try to catch Wayne Newton¹s Christmas shows or the Trans-Siberian Orchestra¹s Winter Concert. Check SmarterVegas.com for discounts on these and other shows. Who knows, with all the money you¹ll save, maybe you can hit up the fantastic shopping the city offers and even get yourself a Christmas present.
New Year¹s Eve
New Year¹s Eve in Las Vegas is quite possibly the party animal¹s dream come true. Every single bar, club, lounge and hotel will have a New Year¹s party planned, and they will all try to out-do each other with celebrity hosts, open bars, world famous DJs, VIP deals, firework displays and all night dancing. There is a party to fit everyone¹s idea of a good time. Hot-spot nightclubs will offer the expected, over the top parties for the trendy crowds but also available are more intimate options like Blush Boutique Nightclub¹s yearly New Year¹s party. If you¹re looking to skip the parties all together, head to the spa for a relaxing day and ring in the New Year at one of Vegas¹ hottest restaurants. Vegas¹ greatest chefs will prepare their finest cuisine for those willing to spend the big bucks and for those that don¹t, the Vegas buffets will be offering a breakfast, lunch and dinner with so many options you¹ll forget about your New Year¹s Day hangover. Visit SmarterVegas.com to book a table at the restaurant of your choice on New Year¹s in Las Vegas. However you decide to ring in the New Year, just remember to start planning early or you might miss out.
