Your Vegas Vacation – What Not To Do
Las Vegas is a wonderful place to go for a holiday or an event. But did you know it is a “no smoking” area? Well, that’s not true. The “No Smoking” policy does apply to some of the hotels, however most of them have it on a “first come, first serve” basis.
For years, casinos in Las Vegas were very well known for their smoking policy. It was OK to inhale a few cigarettes here and there. However, the time when people really began to suffer from emphysema, lung cancer, and other life threatening diseases because they didn’t smoke, this rule was strictly ignored. Now, nearly twenty-five years later, we are finally seeing a change.
In one of the newest shows on television, the Smoking Lounge, there are smokers who can be seen all enjoying their nightly drink. It looks like fun! But one warning! One must dress as they do for their job! So, if you are in a similar situation please don’t try to make it up! They will be gone by the time you get out of your room!
There are several places in Las Vegas that do not allow smokers. Some of the most popular include:
Bellagio (While this is one casino with a no smoker policy, you will need to ask around to find out the specifics) The Paris Las Vegas Hotel (The Ritz Paris is still a no smoker area) The Venetian (Not including the floors of the casino, it is also against the law to smoke in any of the Venetian Las Vegas Hotels) Monte Carlo (There is a “no smoking” policy at the Monte Carlo) Bellagio Villas (The Bellagio Villas is an exception, but they do not let smokers inside the casino. However, many of the hotel furniture pieces do not allow you to sit on them either, so that could explain the “no smoking” policy at the main entrance to the Bellagio)
Aladdin (You won’t believe how many people will come in and out of this bar) Bellagio Foyer (If you have trouble finding someone to smoke with you here, this is the place!) MGM Grand (I never would have guessed that this would be the place for smokers, but hey, it’s Las Vegas!) The Paris Las Vegas Hotel (If you are staying at the Ritz Paris, chances are you won’t see the red light at the door, but they do have a “no smoking” policy inside the casino)
Caesars Palace Casino (Caesars Palace is a Las Vegas favorite amongst many, mainly because they offer some of the best gaming options in Las Vegas!) The Venetian (This is another one of my favorites! And Caesars Palace itself is legendary. I have been to Las Vegas five times and every single time, the entrance has that old red carpet effect to it. Caesars Palace is probably my favorite casino to visit in Las Vegas!)
These are just a few of the most popular places to go in Las Vegas. Every weekend brings something different and new, so what is your idea of a perfect Vegas vacation? Where is your idea of a perfect getaway? What does it look like outside your hotel? Anything goes in Las Vegas, so if you are thinking of going, get ready to take some chances!
This area has more high-end hotels than anything else in the world. This means some of the “tourist” areas may be overpriced. If you plan on staying for awhile, there is no reason not to splurge and have a Las Vegas trip that takes care of you. There are some fabulous perks to staying in these nicer hotels.
For one thing, you get all the freebies that Las Vegas offers under one roof. Take advantage of all the freebies offered to you. Also, when you stay in one of these nice hotels, they tend to be a bit more up-to-date with their shows. This means you will be able to enjoy all of their shows and performances. This is a huge plus when it comes to seeing shows in Vegas.
Overall, you are going to have a blast in Las Vegas. One of my favorite things to do while here is drink. There are tons of great bars and clubs you can visit. The environment is fun, hip, and colorful. Best of all, there are no lines, which means you don’t have to wait in line for anything. Enjoy yourself!
