Where to Stay
Las Vegas certainly isn’t shy of hotels. But we’ve narrowed down our favorite girl’s getaway picks. We’ll start with The Venetian and The Palazzo because every room is a suite and can easily sleep four girls. The Cosmopolitan offers plenty of room for a girl gang with up to three-bedroom suites. For a luxurious hotel stay at the winner of the most Forbes five-star awards in the world, the Encore at Wynn. In a sea of massive resorts, The Cromwell offers an intimate feel with standout amenities including one of Vegas’ most sophisticated bars, a two-level day and night club, restaurant and more.

Where to Dine
Giada at The Cromwell offers a super chic atmosphere plus yummy Italian food by celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis. If you want to spice up your girl’s dinner check out Rose. Rabbit. Lie. Part dinner, part theater performance, this restaurant will keep you entertained with vaudeville acts and delicious courses. Expect to see tap dancing twins, aerialists and more.

Enjoy all things tapas at Jaleo at the Cosmopolitan. From pan con tomato to croquettes, damon and sangria, this spot is the perfect place for sharing. Plus, Jaleo has a friendly and lively atmosphere with communal tables that encourages mingling. You just might meet some other girlfriends at this restaurant.

Where to Drink
A girl’s night out in Vegas isn’t complete without a few drinks and the Skyfall Lounge at the Delano serves up artisan cocktails with a spectacular view of Las Vegas. Located on the 64th floor of the Vegas hotel, Skyfall Lounge offers 180-degree indoor and outdoor views of the Strip. Daily happy hours are timed to sunset, so you can take in the city just as its many bright lights come on. Cocktails to try include the Vistim of Elegance with champagne, Aperol, strawberry, dry vermouth and lemon juice or the Peepshow with tequila, elderflower, vermouth, and yuzu bitters.

Another hotspot with a view is the High Roller. The tallest observation wheel in the world offers a Happy Hal Hour that includes a thirty-minute ride with an open bar. Go for the sunset trip for gorgeous views. The Chandelier Bar in The Cosmopolitan has a unique cocktail selection that vary on each floor and gorgeous photo ops of all the chandeliers throughout.

Where to Party
If you’re visiting in the summer months, March - September, you don’t have to wait until night to party. You’ll find tons of beach clubs and day parties. Encore Beach Club is a great spot for a pool party. Spend the day soaking up the sun and drinking around the pool with your girls. For a nighttime party make sure to stop by Marquee at the Cosmopolitan for fun atmosphere and party vibe. XS at the Wynn has a great lineup of DJs and it’s both indoor and outdoor, making it feel like you’re visiting two clubs in one.

What Show to See
No matter why you come to Vegas you must see a show, and on a girl’s getaway weekend we can’t think of a better one to see than Chippendales at the Rio or Thunder From Down Under at Excalibur. Both offer some of the hottest men you’ll ever see on the Strip as they play out your biggest fantasy.

Where to Relax
One of the largest day spas in North America, Canyon Ranch Spa at the Venetian can easily take a day to experience. Sprawling out over 134,000 square feet, the spa features the Aquavana hydrothermal circuit, a salt grotto, 40-foot-climbing wall, two restaurants, two gyms and more than 90 treatment rooms.
