Give thanks for friends and family with a Vegas getaway

At first glance, heading to Vegas for Thanksgiving Weekend might seem an unconventional plan for a holiday excursion. Hear us out, though – Thanksgiving just might be the most perfect time of year to make a getaway to Sin City. Temperatures along the usually scalding Las Vegas Strip, for instance, have cooled significantly, making exploring the city and surrounding regions a less sweaty proposition than at other times of the year. Plus, many a bachelor and bachelorette weekend that have taken place here have proven that Vegas can, in fact, be satisfactorily visited in a long weekend, making it a getaway that can easily be squeezed in during the time off between Thanksgiving Eve and Cyber Monday.

Perhaps the best reason to visit Vegas this Thanksgiving holiday, though, is the opportunity to take advantage of our Pre-Black Friday deals, featuring up to 50% off tickets to shows like Michael Jackson ONE, Christina Aguilera, Magic Mike Live and more, as well as epic excursions to the Grand Canyon and beyond. Read on for our top three ways to make the most of a Thanksgiving weekend jaunt to Vegas.

Share a stellar meal
Vegas may be known as the entertainment capital of the world, but the international scope of its tourist draw has also made it a destination for award-winning cuisine of many varieties. What better time of year to enjoy Sin City’s diverse culinary bounties than Thanksgiving? Dozens of acclaimed Vegas restaurants – including Bardot Brasserie, Distill, Echo & Rig, Green St. Kitchen, Hamptons, Mon Ami Gabi and more – will feature special menus for the holiday, with some even offering all-inclusive dinner deals for Thanksgiving weekend and beyond. Be sure to call the restaurant for menu details, and make reservations in advance, as these eateries can book up quickly during the holidays.

Take in a Show
Speaking of dinner, why not add a show to the mix while you’re in the entertainment capital of the world? The fam will certainly appreciate the wide array of shows on offer, and we guarantee you’ll be able to find a Vegas show to suit every taste, age group and even music style. Cirque du Soleil is an excellent source of family-friendly shows in genres ranging from artistic tribute (The Beatles LOVE) to action thriller (the all-new R.U.N stunt show). If you’re looking for a night of laughs, an irreverent variety show like Absinthe or Opium might be just the ticket. You can save up to 50% on top shows with our Pre-Black Friday deals – plus, take $20 off your purchase of $100 or more when you use the promo code “NOVEMBER20” at checkout (valid through Nov. 30, 2019 only).

Experience Gratitude in Nature
Thanksgiving can also be a time to stop and reflect, and although Vegas offers ample opportunities to party hard, the surrounding region offers perhaps just as many opportunities to reconnect with yourself (and others) by experiencing the wonders of nature. Whatever landscape you crave, Vegas will deliver: from the manmade marvels of the Hoover Dam to the breathtaking depths of the Grand Canyon, you’ll find no shortage of tours and other experiences that are bound to inspire gratitude for all the natural world has to offer.
