5 of the activities we did where because we purchase a Vegas Explorer Pass. All the shows we watched with this package where amazing.
Also we used the My Vegas apps to earn points to get discounted tickets, 2 for 1 for shows and 2 for 1 on buffets.
- Excalibur Hotel and Casino
- Bubba Gump Shrimp
Landed around 6pm PST. Got a Lyft to our hotel and went to dinner. We didn’t do much this day just explored our hotel and surrounding hotels. We also walked the strip and gambled a bit.
- Lunch: In and Out Burger
- Madame Tussauds
- 5 cent Drafts at Margaritaville (5pm-6pm)
- Vegas! The Show
- Omnia Nightclub
On day 3 we woke up and went to lunch at In and Out Burger off the strip. Next we used our explorer pass to get into Madame Tussauds. We explored around this area then saw 5 cent draft flyer at Margaritaville and did that from 5pm to 6pm which is there daily happy hour. We then went to Vegas! The Show which we also used our explorer pass to get into. To end the night we went out to Omnia Nightclub.
- Nathan Burton Comedy Magic Show
- Dinner: Ocean One Grille
This day we didn’t do as much. I actually ended up getting a haircut late in the afternoon. Once I got back we saw Nathan Burton Comedy Magic Show which we used explorer pass for. Then we had dinner in Planet Hollywood shopping mall at Ocean One Grille. Extremely cheap food and was pretty good as well. We where suppose to see KA: Cirque Du Soleil but the show got cancelled this night.
- Lunch: Mandalay Bay – Buffet
- 5 Star Canyon Helicopter Tours
- Dinner: Hash House a Go Go
On day 4 we used our app game credits and got a 2 for 1 buffet at Mandalay Bay. We relaxed most of this day and got ready for our helicopter tour around the Las Vegas strip. After the helicopter tour we heard about a restaurant called Hash House a Go Go and it was a great local tip. They have amazing drink options and the food is amazing. We did some local bars around the LINQ after dinner.
- Lunch: Luxor – Buffet
- Criss Angel Mindfreak
- Vegas Rockstar Club Tour
Day 5 we had lunch at the Luxor buffet we used our game credits for this as well to get a 2 for 1. After lunch we walk to the North of the strip to explore some hotels. Got back to our from and got dressed to go see Criss Angel which is a show I recommend most people go to if you have a chance. After the show we got a small bite to eat and went on a party bus tour with Vegas Rockstar VIP. They took us to 3 night clubs – Light Nightclub, Hyde Nightclub, and Chateau Nightclub. This party bus tour was with random people but we had a good time. We then got food from Johnny Rockets before bed.
- Gordon Ramsey Burger
- Shark Reef Aquarium
- Las Vegas Sign
- Drais Nightclub
Another late start for us on day 6. We went to Gordon Ramsey Burger for lunch and this was my favorite lunch I had in Vegas food was great. We then went to Zen Zone in Planet Hollywood and got aqua massages. We used the app credits to get a 2 for 1 entry into the Shark Reef Aquarium in Mandalay Bay. After the aquarium we took a Lyft to go take pictures at the Las Vegas welcome sign. Took a Lyft back to our room and got ready to go out to Drais Nightclub where we got to see a Trey Songz concert.
- Megabus to Los Angeles
- Flew out to Hawaii (KOA) from Los Angeles (LAX)
Since we fly standby and the flights didn’t look good from LAS to LAX we found some pretty cheap tickets to catch the Megabus to LAX early in the morning. Once we got to the bus station we took a Lyft to the airport and got on our flight to Kona, Hawaii.
