Extend a Work Trip the Right Way in Las Vegas
More than five million people attended a convention in Las Vegas in 2018, making the city an ideal destination for “bleisure” travel. A mixture of business and leisure, the trend refers to visitors who want to take advantage of work events in major cities by extending their stays with a day of relaxation. In Las Vegas, there are plenty of reasons for visitors to trade in their suits for lounge wear and enjoy a “stay and play” experience with spa treatments, exquisite dining and more.
Unwind with a Luxurious Spa Retreat – At Spa Mandalay, guests are invited to relax after a tiring conference with a visit to tranquil paradise to relieve tension. A custom massage or hot stone body treatment will help relieve any stresses in the body. The spa facilities feature four temperature-variated whirlpools, a steam room and sauna for a soothing environment to reflect both before and after a treatment.
Explore the Art and Culture of Las Vegas – A study by the University of Westminster found that just a short visit to an art gallery can decrease stress levels tremendously. On The Strip, there is art to be found in the most unexpected of places, even a robust gallery in the heart of Bellagio. Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art features rotating exhibitions, with the latest exhibit by powerhouse artist Yayoi Kusama. Her works Infinity Mirrored Room – Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity and Narcissus Garden fuse reflections and lights to create an immersive visual experience. Another destination with a public art scene is ARIA, where sculptures and large-scale installations are located throughout public spaces, such as pieces by famed artists Maya Lin, Jenny Holzer, Nancy Rubins and more.
Get Heart-Pumping Thrills – The Big Apple Coaster at New York-New York Hotel & Casino gives travelers a chance to soar above The Strip on a high-powered roller coaster. Ultimate thrill-seekers can even opt to upgrade their ride with virtual reality goggles for an out-of-this-world experience. Even more excitement can be found at The Adventuredome at Circus Circus Las Vegas, an indoor theme park featuring 25 rides and attractions across five acres of fun.
Take Your Taste Buds on an Adventure – Las Vegas is a city for indulgence and the world-class cuisine takes business trips to a new level. Located in The Strip’s newest hotel and casino, Park MGM, Eataly will give guests a unique culinary experience with its vibrant marketplace and wide array of Italian dining options. And the famous L.A. scene CATCH has a new home at ARIA Resort & Casino – it’s the ultimate spot for a late-night dinner party.
