When to do Vegas: 2019 Vegas Travel Outline


There isn't really a bad time to do Vegas! We have the staples that are ALWAYS better to do in Vegas like 21st birthdays, EVERY birthday after 21, Batchelor and Bachelorette parties, Weddings, Anniversaries, Reunions and any other gathering you have going on. Every season and every occasion, we have just the thing to keep you entertained. I, of course, have my favorites! Here is an outline of some of my favorite times to be in Las Vegas.



VALENTINE'S DAY:

I am a MUSH! I love everything romantic, and cheesy and the things that make you go, "Awwww!" and Vegas is SUCH a perfect time to let out that inner romantic. I've had couples do everything from the most romantic 5-star meals and exclusive shows to the extreme couple who jumped off the Stratosphere to celebrate their love for each other. I love the idea of spoiling your babe with luxury, and Vegas gives you EVERY option to do that.



ST. PATRICK'S DAY

This one isn't for the kids...this is a holiday where you grab your closest friends who aren't going to run home and tell everyone the wild things you guys did in Vegas. Fremont street is the best place to be. I have NEVER in my life seen a more wild and crazy St. Patrick's day. Bring your most ridiculous green outfit, and leave your chill at home, because you won't need it here.



SPRING

The entire spring season to me is the BEST time to be here! The weather is hot but not scorching. The pools start opening up for soft launches and official pool season kickoffs. It's the perfect time to come down. If your budget is tight, I recommend a mid-week trip instead of the weekend, but the weekends are definitely the best time to come down if you are into the club scene. And!!! We just got a residency this spring with Cardi B and the Palm's new KAOS! I am beyond excited for this one. I'll drop more details as soon as I have them so keep your eyes on my twitter.


EDC

If you enjoy electronic dance music, you NEED to be in town for EDC week. Even if you didn't score a wristband to EDC, we still have the worlds best DJs spinning at all of our nightclubs and special events popping off all over the city especially for EDC week. I'll do a special post about this specifically once we have more details. This year it is on May 17th, 18th and 19th. Book your hotel RIGHT NOW if you are interested in kicking it with us this weekend.



HALLOWEEN

Pack your sexiest/scariest costume, and get yourself to Vegas for Halloween 2019! We have HORRIFYING haunted attractions and escape rooms. There are SO MANY that I will need a whole post to review them when the times gets closer, but trust me. If you love the scary side of Halloween, we will not disappoint you! We also have a bunch of costume contests for one person to groups of 10 where you could win hundreds of dollars. The categories are usually scariest, most original, funniest, or just group. The bigger and more original the better! One year I saw a family do stranger things complete with Eggo's and the monster on stilts about 8 ft tall it was AMAZING and obvi they won. Whether you compete or not, it's fun to watch! Our nightclubs also have contests for the sexiest and scariest costumes too! Come through, get scared, and win some money!


NEW YEAR

This is the busiest time to be here hands down. The fireworks, the shows, the celebrity, the vibe. We definitely bring out our best for the last night of the year. We book up near capacity everywhere, and there is NOTHING cheap and very few things free. This definitely isn't a budget-friendly trip, but it is worth saving for because this will be one of the best nights of your life and an amazing way to ring in the new year. The strip completely shuts down so that you can walk up and down Las Vegas Boulevard, see the news filming everywhere, party with your favorite celebrity or watch them perform and then watch the best fireworks show we can put together.

Overall I think weekends are the best fun wise and for entertainment options. I recommend using an Uber instead of renting a car, as you will have to pay for parking everywhere now. And PLEASE venture outside of your hotel/the area you are staying! If you are staying on the Strip - go see DTLV and not just Fremont street, go all around to the Mob Museum and the Container Park. If you're staying in DTLV, go check out Summerlin like the Red Rock Hotel and Casino and DTSummerlin Shopping center or the actual Red Rock Canyon! Vegas has so much to offer. I am available via email or social media DM if you are stuck in your planning and need some help, or if you are already here and need some tips on what to do.

Throw Back: That one time I competed in a pageant

Once upon a time, what seems like a long time ago I decided I wanted to be a beauty queen. It was definitely an experience I will never forget and I finally have the chance to tell you all about it! I've always known that I wanted to help people in some way, and one day it dawned on me if I had a crown that would definitely give me a much louder voice to speak on issues I thought were important. So, I went searching for what I thought was the best pageant for me and I landed on Miss Nevada USA 2016. The only thing I knew about pageants at this point was from the Miss Congeniality movie and what I heard about from my cousin's social media pages. So from that, I thought it was going to be a breeze...PSYCH! It was probably the most grueling process of self-discovery I've ever put myself through. My first step was figuring out how much all of this was going to cost. For me, it was a ridiculous amount that I just wasn't going to be able to make at my day job in

My Netflix Obsession: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

I am loving that Netflix has original movies and series! Right now I am all caught up in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and am very impatiently waiting for the release info on seasons 3 and 4! Let's talk all about why this is SUCH a binge-able flick and YOU should be just as excited to catch up! So, I went into CAOS without even knowing what I was getting myself into. I thought it was a Sabrina the Teenage witch via Melissa Joan Heart spin off/reboot/remake situation...I had NO idea Archie Comics had an entire dark world that spawned my childhood fave...because I would have been obsessed YEARS ago. They took something that was sweet, innocent and wholesome, added the actual devil and a dash of sexy and I've been horrified through every episode! The series keeps all our Sabrina favorites, Sabrina herself, Harvey, Hilda and Zelda, and my always favorite Salem but with a twist and gives us some new favorites in the Weird Sisters, Ambrose Spellman and Nicholas Scratch.

Day N Vegas: The Hip Hop Festival Vegas Needs

We've been asking for it, and the people down at GoldenVoice have made it happen!

  Hello everyone and WELCOME BACK to the Nikki On Vegas Blog! I am SO happy to be back and have so much to update you on!  I have been away for a LONG WHILE and wanted to come back with an update on all things NikkiOnVegas.

So let's dig right back in on all that plus what I've been up to since the last time we spoke... VEGAS: We've definitely been on a wild ride.

Throw Back Thursday: Let's Go Sailing

Carnival Cruise - Ensenada, Mexico Around this time last year, I went on my first cruise. And now I'm obsessed! I've always loved vacations, to the point that I spent most (if not all) of my free time helping anyone I could have the vacation of their dreams. This time around, I was taking the vacation.  My Beautiful Mom and our comp breakfast I was SO busy living it up on the ship that I totally forgot to take pictures of all the super amazing things going on. There was ALWAYS something going on. We didn't have a single bored moment, or even any downtime if we didn't want it. We took complete and total advantage of all the free food. I was pregnant at the time, so I was ALWAYS hungry lol. The ship had me covered. There was a burger bar, a buffet-style arrangement, pizza, and every night there was a fancy dinner setup. There were live shows, like 2 different nightclubs, there was a karaoke night, live music all over the place. It was just amazing!

My Netflix Obsession: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 3!

I feel like I've been waiting for this to drop FOREVER!!! I've been battling a touch of insomnia so I was MORE than pleased to tune in to Part 3 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina the moment it dropped on January 24th and here's why YOU should be just as obsessed. I'll keep the spoilers to a minimum, but DEFINITELY finish Part 2 before you go on. Netflix Ladies and Gents, the wait is finally over (kind of) as we get to settle in for a binge-a-thon with our new favorite witch, Sabrina Spellman. Here's the preview: So, we know we left off Part 2 of CAOS with Nabrina (Nick Scratch and Sabrina, End Game) in a tough situation to get out of! Nick did the most honorable thing and used his OWN BODY as a prison for Sabrina's not so loving father, Satan. They then sent the body prison that is Nick to Hell with its new ruler Lilith. Part 2 was such a whirlwind, and they started Part 3 NO DIFFERENTLY! We pick right up into Sabrina and her closest friend
