What’s On The Agenda?
Living in Las Vegas can be a blast! With its world-famous nightlife, entertainment, and catering to almost any lifestyle imaginable, it’s no surprise that some people move here and spend WAY too much money. But if you know the cool spots, there are many free and and/or inexpensive things to do here. All while still enjoying the the pizazz of Sin City. As for me? I live it up! However, some may not want to spend as much MOOLA as I do. Today, on LUXE BLOG, I wanted to share some ideas for things you can do in while in Sin City.
Things You Do In Vegas Include:
Visit The Ethel M Chocolate Factory: This is a free attraction located just outside of Las Vegas. You can take a self-guided tour of the chocolate factory, see the cactus garden, and even sample some delicious chocolates. Yum.
Window Shop Real Estate: Las Vegas has some great opportunities, even with its moderate cost of living. Many new home developers offer free model home tours. There’s something about walking through a fully furnished model home that helps you imagine what it would be like to live there. It works wonders for me, at least!
Go Hiking: Hiking is one of the best ways to explore Las Vegas. With trails for all levels and breathtaking views, it’s a great way to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Lone Mountain and the Red Rock Conservation Area are tow of my favorite places to hike.
Stargaze At Mount Charleston: Did you know that Mount Charleston is one of the best places to stargaze in the country? The lack of light pollution makes it possible to see thousands of stars in the night sky. Bring a blanket, a thermos of hot cocoa, and enjoy the celestial show.
Check Container Park: This is a unique outdoor shopping and dining experience in downtown LV, made entirely out of shipping containers. It’s a great place to grab a bite to eat, do some shopping, or just people watch. In fact, just do you.
Things To Do – Part 2
Educate Yourself: There are plenty of free educational resources available in Las Vegas, including libraries, museums, and classes. Take advantage of these to learn more about the culture and history of the city. In fact, I’ll be the first to say that our city’s history is extremely interesting.
Check Out Local Events: There’s always something going on in Las Vegas, from festivals to concerts. This is the type of city where you can ALWAYS find something FREE to do. And have it be fun. Just Google away and you’ll be jam-packed with ideas for the day/night.
Use Public Transportation: Las Vegas is served by an excellent public transportation system that’s affordable and convenient. It’s easy to get around without worrying about parking or traffic. There’s also light rail and of course Lyft and Uber.
Visit Seven Magic Mountains: This is an outdoor art installation located about 10 miles south of Las Vegas. It features seven towering pillars of colorful boulders that make for some great photo opportunities. Seven Magic Mountains is one of my favorite places to drive out to and unwind.
Take A Ghost Tour: Boo! Las Vegas is full of spooky and haunted places. And there are plenty of ghost tours that take you around to some of the city’s most haunted locations. It’s a fun way to learn about the city’s history and maybe even see something spooky.
I Hope you Enjoyed These Ideas
If you’ve ever read any past LUXE BLOG’s you’ll know I’m an active gal. I love it here. And I know you will too. Living in Las Vegas can get pricey, but is MUCH more affordable than many other cities. Plus, as I mentioned, there’s many ways to save cash while sill having a great time. With careful planning, you can enjoy Las Vegas without breaking your budget!
That said, I’m about to head out to meet with clients! I’m showing them new homes for sale in Carmel Cliff in Summerlin. They love the village’s location. So, I asked them, “Why not live there?” and they agreed. How about you? Do you want to move to Las Vegas and seize real estate opportunities?
Regardless, I hope this information helps you get inspired and think of ways to save money while living it up in Las Vegas. See you next time.
