7 Days in Vegas: Your Perfect 1 Week Las Vegas Itinerary

Ready to hit the Strip? This 7-day Las Vegas itinerary has you covered with all the best things to do on your visit to Sin City!

Kevin and I headed out west for an impromptu visit to Las Vegas. It was Kevin’s first visit to Vegas, and I’d only been once as a kid, so we had a lot of ground to cover.

Get ready to spend 7 days in Las Vegas with this itinerary (because there’s way more to do in Vegas than just sit at the slot machines all day)!

Las Vegas Itinerary

Day 1 in Las Vegas

What I love about Las Vegas’s airport is it’s so close to the city, so you don’t have to waste a ton of your first day in Vegas trying to get to your hotel. It’s only about a 15-20 minute drive from the airport to most hotels on the Strip.

Use your first day in Vegas to get settled into your hotel and familiarize yourself with the area.

Check-in at the Luxor

Luxor Hotel & Casino exterior, Las Vegas, Nevada

For our 7 day trip to Vegas, we stayed at the Luxor Hotel & Casino, the one that looks like the giant pyramid.

The Luxor was built in 1992 with an Egyptian theme. Most people’s main complaint about the hotel is that, despite a renovation in 2021, the hotel is a little old and it shows.

We actually stayed in one of the towers, so not one of the pyramid rooms with the awkward slanted windows, and I thought the rooms were perfectly fine.

The Luxor is on the cheaper side for Vegas hotels, and it’s location on the south end of the Strip helps it feel a little quieter. There’s a free tram that will take you to the Mandalay Bay and the Excalibur hotels, plus the three hotels are connected indoors, so it’s really easy to get around from the Luxor.

Overall, I enjoyed our stay at the Luxor.

Dinner at Nine Fine Irishmen

Once settled into our hotel, we made our way over to the New York New York Hotel & Casino for dinner at Nine Fine Irishmen, a lively Irish pub.

This is a classic pub serving all your favorite Irish dishes. I recommend the Lamb & Guinness Stew or the Fish & Chips.

Explore Hershey’s Chocolate World

πŸ“ at New York New York

After dinner, we went to Hershey’s Chocolate World, which sounds like it’s this big attraction, but really it’s just a huge candy store.

They do have a sculpture of the Statue of Liberty made out of nearly 800 pounds of Hershey’s Milk Chocolate. They have another statue as well, this one made out of Twizzlers.

The store covers two stories and has tons of Hershey’s, Reese’s, and Jolly Ranger products, gifts, candies, and baked goods. It’s fun to look around at all the unique products they offer.

Get at drink at The Chocolate Bar

πŸ“ at New York New York

Outside of Hershey’s Chocolate World is The Chocolate Bar, a bar specializing in candy-flavored martinis.

They have different types of chocolate martinis made with Hershey’s chocolate syrup as well as fruity martinis made with Jolly Rancher vodka. We went for a classic Hershey’s Chocolate Martini and a Reese’s Chocolate Martini.

Day 2 in Las Vegas

Our second day in Vegas was jam-packed with exploring different hotels along the Strip. This is mostly because we were in Las Vegas for Kevin to attend a conference, so we had to pack in a lot to his non-conference day.

Visit the “Welcome to Las Vegas” Sign

Did you even visit Vegas if you didn’t get a picture with the “Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas” sign on the south end of the Strip?

The sign was put up in the median of Las Vegas Boulevard South in 1959 and has been a landmark ever since. It’s one of the best free things to do in Las Vegas.

You can walk or drive to the sign (there is a parking lot). People line up to get a picture with the sign at all hours of the day, so there’s almost always a crowd, even going early in the morning. You can kind of cheat your picture by standing off to the side for a photo, if you don’t want to wait in line.

Explore the Atomic Museum

The Atomic Museum (or the National Atomic Testing Museum) tells the story of America’s nuclear weapons testing program at the Nevada Test Site.

This Smithsonian-affiliate museum is full of in-depth exhibits taking you through the world events leading up to the establishment of the Nevada Test Site, the nuclear testing done at the site, and its effects on the community and environment around it.

This is a great Las Vegas museum for nerds, but it’s also a really interesting piece of Vegas history that’s often overlooked in favor of the casinos.

Get your tickets to the Atomic Museum here.

Grab a snack at New York Pretzel

πŸ“ at New York New York

Garlic Parmesan Pretzel from New York Pretzel, New York New York Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada

After a morning of exploring, we needed a snack (or maybe a late breakfast) before our next activity.

So we stopped at New York Pretzel to share a garlic parmesan pretzel. They also serve other savory pretzels, candied apples, hot dogs, and pretzel sticks.

Ride the Big Apple Coaster

πŸ“ at New York New York

When my family visited Vegas as a kid, I was just barely too short to ride the Big Apple Coaster at New York New York. And I was so upset.

So I wasn’t about to leave Vegas a second time without having conquered the coaster.

The Big Apple Coaster was the first roller coaster in the world to have a 180-degree “heartline” twist. You go 67 mph and have a 203 foot drop.

It’s a quick but fun ride, and actually not as jerky as I’d expected it to be. We got there as soon as the ride opened, so there wasn’t much of a wait. We got the second row, so it was a pretty thrilling view. They have lockers where you can put your loose items so you don’t lose anything on the ride.

Get your Big Apple Coaster tickets here.

Lunch at Sirrico’s Pizza

πŸ“ at New York New York

Sausage and pepperoni pizzas from Sirrico's Pizza, New York New York Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada

For lunch, we headed out of the roller coaster and arcade and down into the “streets” of New York New York. There are a bunch of food places to choose from here, but we settled on Sirrico’s Pizza.

The pizza was your standard food court pizza, so nothing really special. But it wasn’t bad, and this was a good place to eat and people-watch.

Stroll the streets of New York New York

πŸ“ at New York New York

After lunch, we set out to enjoy the casinos’ elaborately designed interiors, starting with New York New York Hotel & Casino, a New York-themed hotel with a replica of the Statue of Liberty and skyscrapers like the empire State Building.

New York New York has recreated the brownstone and tree-lined streets of Greenwich Village. Even though you’re indoors, there are NY-style buildings towering over you. The shops and eateries are located in the lower sections of these “buildings”.

It’s fun to just stroll through the themed casinos and be transported to a different world with each one.

Get a drink at the Tipsy Robot

πŸ“ at Planet Hollywood

We made our way up the Strip to the Tipsy Robot, a robotic bar where you can watch your robot bartender mix you a drink. There’s a location at Planet Hollywood in the Miracle Mile Shops and at The Venetian, but I recommend the Planet Hollywood location.

You’ll order your drink from a tablet; they have over 100 different drinks to choose from, ranging from the classics to some house specialties. Then once you’ve ordered, you can watch one of the two robots at the front mix your drink, pulling from the mixers suspended on the ceiling. I think the funniest part is when they have to shake a cocktail, so try to get a drink that’s shaken!

Since Las Vegas allows you to have open containers of alcohol on the Strip, we took our robotic drinks to go to continue exploring other hotels.

Enjoy the views of Paris

πŸ“ at Paris

Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is a Paris-themed hotel with a half scale replica of the Eiffel Tower, a two-thirds scale replica of the Arc de Triomphe, and a hot air balloon.

Inside, the casino has a nice blue sky ceiling, legs of the Eiffel Tower, and a recreation of the Rue de la Paix shopping district with a 1920s street scene.

Our intention at Paris was to go up the Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck, which lets you go up 46 stories to the top of the replica Eiffel Tower for panoramic views of the city. But it was closed the whole week we were there. So you should go and tell me how it is in the comments!

Get your Las Vegas Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck ticket here.

Get a drink at The Chandelier Bar

πŸ“ at The Cosmopolitan

Our next stop was The Chandelier Bar at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

The Chandelier is a pretty cool bar because it’s three levels set inside a giant beaded curtain chandelier. But besides its amazing ambiance, we were here for one thing:

The Verbena.

The Verbena cocktail debuted in 2010 on the bar’s middle level, the 1.5 Level, and it was supposed to only be available in the evenings for a few months. But the cocktail was an entire experience, and people absolutely loved it. Now it’s a not-so-secret “secret menu” item that you can get any time on any level of the bar.

The drink is essentially a margarita made with Herradura Blanco tequila, yuzu, kalamansi, ginger, and lemon verbena. It’s garnished with a small Szechuan flower, also called a “buzz button”.

For the full experience, you’re supposed to chew the Szechuan flower first, which will numb your tongue, make you salivate, and heighten your tastebuds. Then when you sip the drink, it’s like the flavors are on overdrive. (Your server should tell you all this when they bring you the drink.)

It’s a wild experience. I recommend taking a sip of the drink before you eat the flower so you can compare the flavors before and after. It’s also kind of funny because your mouth will water like crazy and you can taste every little thing.

If that doesn’t sound like fun to you, they do have other delicious drinks! In addition to the Verbena, we also enjoyed the Champagne Socialist and the Finishing School.

See the Fountains of Bellagio show

πŸ“ at Bellagio

The Fountains of Bellagio is a free show at the man-made lake in front of the Bellagio Hotel & Casino.

The lake’s fountains are set to music and lights, with more than 1,000 feet of water soaring up to 460 feet into the air.

The shows only last about 5 minutes, and they happen every 30 minutes in the daytime and ever 15 minutes at night.

Explore the canals of the Venetian

πŸ“ at The Venetian

The next hotel for us to explore was The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. The Venetian is a Venice-themed hotel, with replicas of the Campanile di San Marco, the Rialto Bridge, and Doge’s Palace.

I absolutely love Venice, so seeing the design of the Venetian was a must for me.

One of the main highlights here is to take a gondola ride on the hotel’s indoor or outdoor canals. Since we’ve already done the actual gondola rides in Venice, we felt we didn’t really need to do one here. But I’m always a big fan of a romantic gondola ride, so if you have time, I recommend you do it!

Get your Venetian Gondola Ride tickets here.

See the Flamingos

πŸ“ at The Flamingo

The Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is a classic Vegas hotel that opened in 1946. It’s the oldest continuously operating resort on the Strip.

It also leans into its pink decor and old-Vegas vibes. Plus, they have a free Flamingo Wildlife Habitat that covers 4 acres of gardens and has exotic birds, fish, and turtles.

It’s completely free to visit their Chilean flamingos, brown pelicans, Koi fish, albino catfish, and turtles.

Dinner at Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar

πŸ“ at The LINQ

Bacon Mac N' Cheese burger and the Holy Guacamole Burger from Guy Fieri's Vegas Kitchen & Bar, The LINQ Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada

Vegas is full of restaurants from celebrity chefs and restauranteurs, so we figured we should try one out.

Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar at The LINQ Hotel and Casino was Food Network star Guy Fieri’s first Las Vegas restaurant.

On the menu, you’ll find burgers, wings, tacos, and his signature Trash Can Nachos. We went for the Bacon Mac N’ Cheese burger and the Holy Guacamole Burger.

Head out to AREA15

AREA15 is a really cool spot in general that’s like stepping into another dimension. It’s an immersive entertainment venue with Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart, art shows, VR experiences, axe throwing, a flight simulator, an arcade, escape rooms, a zipline, an Illuminarium, and an observation tower ride.

During less busy times, you can usually get a free entry pass to just admire the art and roam the district. And if you’ve pre-booked an experience in the district, you don’t need an entry pass.

See a show

Burlesque dancer at Lost Spirits Distillery, Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas is known for its shows.

Whether you want to see magic, dancing, singing, comedy, cabaret, or circus acts, there’s a show for you.

The show that we went to has since shut down, so unfortunately I can’t recommend it, but you’ll have no problem finding a performance in Vegas!

Here are some top Las Vegas shows right now:

Day 3 in Vegas

Our third day in Las Vegas was a lot more chill, mostly because I was on my own to explore. On this day, I also figured out the free tram system between the casinos, which meant a lot less walking!

Visit Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition

πŸ“ at The Luxor

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is a 25,000 square foot exhibit at The Luxor that has more than 350 artifacts recovered from the sinking of the Titanic.

It’s a bit of a somber experience, very different than the vibes out on the Strip.

You’ll learn about the construction of the ship, see replicas of the cabins, and learn about some of the passengers. Throughout, there are artifacts recovered from the wreckage like luggage, passengers’ personal belongings, china, floor tiles, and more.

They also have a replica of the Grand Staircase that you can take a picture on (paid only), a replica of the Outer Promenade Deck on the moonless night, and the largest piece of the Titanic ever recovered on display.

Get your tickets to Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition here.

Lunch at Le Pizza e La Pasta

πŸ“ at Park MGM

Pomodoro from Le Pizza e La Pasta, Park MGM, Las Vegas, Nevada

For lunch, I made my way over the the Park MGM Las Vegas, which is the only smokeless hotel and casino on the Strip. So it was quite literally a breath of fresh air.

Inside the Park MGM is EATALY, an Italian marketplace and food court. But they have sit-down restaurants as well, like Le Pizza e La Pasta where I went for lunch.

As the name suggests, they serve pizza and pasta. I recommend the Pomodoro.

Bask in the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens

πŸ“ at Bellagio

The Bellagio has an indoor Conservatory and Botanical Gardens that covers 14,000 square feet and is full of whimsical designs. Best of all? It’s free!

The plants and themes change for each season (spring, summer, fall, winter, and a special Lunar New Year display), but they’re always elaborate and opulent.

When I visited, it was decorated with a spring tea party theme. There were tulips galore, giant tea pots, and beautiful fairies. It was like stepping into Alice in Wonderland.

Enjoy a Pool Day

Las Vegas hotels have some amazing pools! The elaborate designs of the hotels often stretch as far as the pool as well, so there are some pretty unique pool experiences.

If your hotel has a pool, and the weather is good, I highly recommend a pool day. I enjoyed the pool at the Luxor since the desert theme really complimented it.

If your hotel doesn’t have a pool, or you just want to see what else is around, here are some hotels that offer day passes to their pools:

  • Mandalay Bay β€” has a lazy river and a wave pool, among others
  • The LINQ β€” a party pool with huge oversized outdoor games and beer pong
  • The ENGLiSH Hotel β€” adults only pool
  • The STRAT β€” rooftop pool with daybeds and cabanas

Dinner at Diablo’s Cantina

πŸ“ at The Luxor

Diablo’s Cantina has two Vegas locations, one at the Luxor and the other at The Mirage. We ate at the Luxor location.

This Mexican restaurant has freshly made salsa and guacamole, tacos, enchiladas, burritos, and margaritas. We had the Filet Alambre Tacos and the Diablo’s Enchilada Platter.

Day 4 in Vegas

Our fourth day in Vegas was another solo travel day for me, so it was again not as busy as our first day. This day mostly centers around Mandalay Bay.

Visit the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay

πŸ“ at Mandalay Bay

Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino has its very own aquarium. The Shark Reef Aquarium is home to 2,000 animals, with an emphasis on sharks of course.

They have more than 100 sharks, saw fish, giant rays, endangered green seat turtles, piranha, jellyfish, rare golden crocodiles, and more.

I will say, I did expect this to be bigger. I didn’t even spend 30 minutes in there. But if you really like sharks, then I guess you might spend longer.

Lunch at Noodle Shop

πŸ“ at Mandalay Bay

Chicken Lo Mein from Noodle Shop, Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, Nevada

For lunch, I went to Noodle Shop at Mandalay Bay. This small casino-side restaurant specializes in Pan-Asian fare.

On the menu, you’ll find noodle bowls, traditional Cantonese and Mandarin dishes, Hong Kong Style Wonton Soup, and other Chinese favorites. I recommend the Chicken Lo Mein stir-fry noodles.

Grab a drink at the 1923 Prohibition Bar

πŸ“ at Mandalay Bay

1923 Prohibition Bar is a speakeasy experience in the Shops at Mandalay (there’s also a location at the Venetian).

This hidden spot is located behind a bookcase, just push to open and step back in time.

Inside, it’s like you’ve stepped into the 1920s. It’s a cozy bar with classy and comfortable lounge seating. And if you go in the middle of a weekday, there’s no one else there. I literally had this place to myself for a whole hour, and only then did a couple more people find their way in.

Their drinks are just what you’d want from a speakeasy. They have a lot of old fashioneds and classic bourbon cocktails. I like something sweeter, so I went for the Tommy Gun Basil Spritz and the Gangster’s Paradise.

Enjoy another Pool Day

Yep, that’s right, I was sipping mojitos by the pool two days in a row!

But with Las Vegas pools closing so early in the day (around 8 p.m. in the summer and around 5 p.m. in the fall, winter, and spring), you have to fit in some pool time while you can.

Why do Vegas pools close so early? It’s a compound of reasons:

  • It gets people back into the casino to spend more money (or to a show or bar, which also make considerable money)
  • It’s a greater liability to oversee the pool safety after dark (people do be crazy, after all)
  • It costs a lot to provide lifeguards, lighting, and cocktail service later into the night (when there might be fewer guests because they’re all off enjoying Vegas’s nightlife)

So enjoy the pool while there’s sunlight!

Dinner at the Mandalay Bay Food Court

πŸ“ at Mandalay Bay

Stromboli from the Mandalay Bay Food Court, Las Vegas, Nevada

The Mandalay Bay food court probably sounds like an odd suggestion, I know, but it was the most convenient dinner location for me and Kevin between his conference and the next thing on our itinerary.

Plus, this was the cheapest meal I had in all of Vegas (which was still expensive, even though it was just food court fast food).

See a show or game at Allegiant Stadium

Concert at Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas, Nevada

Allegiant Stadium is behind the Mandalay Bay, and it’s an easy enough walk over for a show or a game.

The stadium is the home of the Las Vegas Raiders NFL team and it’s where a bunch of big names come to play concerts.

Day 5 in Vegas

Our fifth day in Las Vegas was a spa day for me! I also got to meet up with a friend who recently moved to Vegas, so she got to show me a little local flavor away from the Strip.

Start your morning with a Spa Day

Most hotels in Las Vegas have a spa. And if yours doesn’t, you can visit any hotel’s spa without being a guest of that hotel.

You can book a massage or facial, or just get a day pass to enjoy the spa’s facilities like hot tubs, saunas, and steam rooms.

I did a massage at the Nature Spa & Salon at the Luxor. My best Las Vegas tip is to book your massage on a weekday because they offer cheaper pricing!

The Nature Spa has a dry sauna, a steam room, Jacuzzis, a pool, and a relaxation room. They offer professional hair, nail, and make-up services, massage services, and facial services.

It was really relaxing, and there were only a couple people in the spa on a weekday morning.

Lunch at Backstage Deli

πŸ“ at The Luxor

Pesto Chicken Sandwich from Backstage Deli, Luxor, Las Vegas, Nevada

For lunch, I did Backstage Deli at the Luxor, which is a counter-service cafe with a menu of house-made sandwiches, wraps, and salads.

I recommend the Pesto Chicken Sandwich with fries. These sandwiches are huge, so this would be a good meal to share.

Head off the Strip to Downtown Summerlin

Downtown Summerlin, Las Vegas, Nevada

After lunch, I met up with my friend who just moved to Vegas. She took me to Downtown Summerlin to see where the locals hang out.

Downtown Summerlin is an outdoor shopping center with dining and entertainment. They also have events like a weekly farmers market and live music in the summer.

This is also where you’ll find the Las Vegas Ballpark and City National Arena, the practice facility for the NHL Vegas Golden Knights.

Get a drink at Public School 702

We did drinks and a snack at Public School 702, a gastropub with a schoolhouse theme.

Public School Restaurant & Bar has this Vegas location plus a California location. They serve craft beer and a fresh, eclectic menu of food. Come for “Recess”, their Happy Hour, on the weekdays.

I recommend the Pretzel Bites to snack on and “Most Popular” AKA Crushed Velvet to drink.

Have wine and tapas at Grape Street Wine Bar

Stuffed Mushrooms, the Meatballs, and a glass of white wine from Grape Street Wine Bar, Downtown Summerlin, Las Vegas, Nevada

For dinner, we did wine and tapas at Grape Street Wine Bar, a cute European-inspired cafe with Italian and Mediterranean foods and a huge wine list.

They have an outdoor patio that’s perfect for a summer day, plus open-air indoor seating so you can still enjoy the weather without fully being in the heat.

I recommend the Stuffed Mushrooms, the Meatballs, and a glass of your favorite wine.

Day 6 in Vegas

For our last full day in Vegas, we got “off the Strip” and headed to Downtown. Technically, Downtown Las Vegas starts from the STRAT and heads north. So we started there, and worked our way up.

Go to the top of the STRAT

πŸ“ at The STRAT

The STRAT Hotel & Casino & Tower has a 1,149 foot observation tower, the tallest in the United States and the second tallest in the Western Hemisphere.

You can go to the top of the tower for incredible views of Las Vegas and the surrounding mountains. Levels 108 and 109 hold the indoor and outdoor observation decks. You can also get snacks and cocktails here.

If you’re up for a thrill, Levels 109 and 112 have rides like the Big Shot that shoots you up the tower’s spire, the X-Scream roller coaster that hangs you over the edge of the tower, or the SkyJump where you can leap off the tower. You can get tickets for the rides here.

They also have the Top of the World rotating restaurant on Level 106. You can watch the views go by as you dine while the restaurant slowly revolves.

We just went to the observation decks because I like to see a city from above. We didn’t see anyone doing any of the rides, but we did watch them do a test drop for the SkyJump with a bag of weights.

Get your STRAT Tower Observation Deck tickets here.

Lunch at Evel Pie

Evel Pie is a pizza joint that looks a little dive bar-y, but it’s got really excellent pizza.

The restaurant has a rock n’ roll and Evel Knievel theme. Evel Knievel memorabilia lines the walls.

You’ll order your New York slice at the counter (you can also get Coca-Cola up here away from the Strip, so I was all set!). We recommend the Chicken Ranch, Extreme Pepperoni, and Goblin Sausage pizzas.

Explore the Fremont Street Experience

The Fremont Street Experience is a pedestrian mall in Downtown where you can find a lot of Classic Vegas vibes. It’s a little bit less glamorous and more grungy than the Strip, and yet it’s still very Vegas.

You’ll walk along this stretch of about five blocks under a canopy with an ever-changing LED display. At 13,000 square feet, this is the world’s largest video screen.

There are a bunch of bars, restaurants, shops, and casinos along the promenade. Buskers can set up shop in the designated circles on the ground. There’s a free concert series. You can even zipline above the promenade.

This part of town is the Old Las Vegas. Fremont Street had Vegas’s first hotel in 1906, and it still has classic casinos like the Golden Nugget.

Visit the Mob Museum

Just off of Fremont Street, the Mob Museum (officially named the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement) is an in-depth history museum about the Mob and organized crime, centered on Las Vegas.

The museum takes up residence in the 1933 U.S. Post Office and Courthouse building. This courthouse was the site of one of the famous Kefauver Committee hearings, which exposed a lot of the ongoings of America’s organized crime.

There’s a lot of information in this museum, from the beginnings of the Mob and Vegas to the effect of Prohibition to organized crime today.

Get your tickets to The Mob Museum here.

Get a drink at the Underground Speakeasy and Distillery

Italian Creme Soda and Moonshine Mayhem cocktails from Underground Speakeasy and Distillery at the Mob Museum, Downtown Las Vegas, Nevada

Down in the basement of the Mob Museum is their Underground Speakeasy and Distillery.

If you’ve already gotten a ticket to the Mob Museum, you’ll just head down to the basement from inside the building. If you’re just visiting the speakeasy, you’ll need the password from their website, and you’ll enter through an unmarked door around the side of the building.

Inside, the speakeasy is a bar, but it’s also filled with exhibits and artifacts from the Roaring Twenties. They have a menu of craft Prohibition-inspired cocktails. We recommend the Moonshine Mayhem and the Italian Creme Soda.

A lot of their drinks are made with their own moonshine from their distillery. You can purchase separate tickets to tour the distillery.

Check out the Downtown Container Park

Praying mantis in front of the Downtown Container Park, Las Vegas, Nevada

The Downtown Container Park is a shopping center built from shipping containers. You’ll spot it by the giant Praying Mantis outside.

They have local shops, restaurants, and bars as well as daily live entertainment.

Grab a drink at Atomic Liquors

Atomic Liquors isn’t too far of a walk from the Fremont Street Experience. If you remember what you learned from your visit to the Atomic Museum on Day 2, you’ll remember that Las Vegas residents could watch the atomic testing from town.

The bar opened right as the atomic testing began, so the family and their friends would watch the test from the roof of their building.

Atomic Liquors was also Las Vegas’s first free-standing bar, had the first liquor store license in Vegas, and received the first Tavern License.

The original building is still a dark and smokey dive bar. But you can head out to the patio and the open-air addition to find a second bar serving atomic-themed drinks and food.

We recommend the Strawberry Fields, the Atomic Horizon, and the Nevada Test Shot.

Nerd out at the Millennium FANDOM BAR

The Millennium FANDOM BAR is a great nerd-themed bar with cosplay events nearly every night. They’ve got a really funky decor with nerdy references on every shelf.

Kevin’s favorite part was all the nerdy trinkets. We also talked to the owner for a while, and he enlightened us on some of the references laying around that we weren’t sure of.

I was a big fan of their drinks, which are, first of all, a great price compared to the rest of Vegas, and secondly, are all very delicious. I did their Mana Potion (because I’m a sucker for edible glitter) and The Sorting Hat. Kevin had the Deadpool Mule and In Groot We Trust. We would have tried them all if we could because they all sounded so good.

Cosplay is not required, but they do have themed nights nearly every night, plus they have weekly events like karaoke, trivia, and movie nights.

Dinner at Attack on Rice

Attack on Rice is a Japanese food truck that you can find around Vegas. For us, it was parked at the Millennium FANDOM BAR for the night, so it was a natural choice for dinner.

The food truck specializes in donburi, a Japanese rice bowl. We recommend the Gyudon, the Chicken Katsu Curry, and the Gyoza.

Get a flight at Flights Las Vegas

πŸ“ at Planet Hollywood

Flights Restaurant & Bar at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood serves food and drinks in flights of three.

I wanted to come here purely because I saw they had a Mojito Flight, and I love a mojito (or three!).

They also have a rotating Happy Hour. We made it in time for the Frozen Margarita Flight happy hour, so that’s what Kevin got while I enjoyed my Mojito Flight.

Day 7 in Vegas

On your last day in Las Vegas, it’s time to say goodbye. Be sure to do any last minute shopping or playing the slots before you fly out.

If you didn’t get your fill of casinos, don’t worry, you can still play the slots in the airport. The Harry Reid International Airport is one of only two airports in the U.S. with slot machines, and there are hundreds of them. So you still have one last chance to win the jackpot.

Where to Stay for 7 Days in Las Vegas

The Luxor Hotel & Casino

Hotel Room at the Luxor, Las Vegas, Nevada

For our 7 days in Vegas, we stayed at the Luxor Hotel & Casino. The Luxor was built in 1992 with an Egyptian theme, hence why it looks like a giant pyramid.

We stayed in one of the towers, not one of the pyramid rooms, and these tower rooms seem much more spacious and updated.

The Luxor is on the cheaper side for Vegas hotels, but I felt like the rooms were still nice enough. I enjoyed the pool and the spa, and they had some pretty good restaurants onsite. It also seemed like a quieter hotel compared to some of the others, especially during the week (everything gets louder on the weekends). Overall, I enjoyed our stay at the Luxor.

Book a stay at the Luxor here.
