Thinking about coming to Las Vegas for Thanksgiving?
Or heck, you’re already here! Whatever the case may be, November 24th is right around the corner and you might be panicking about the number of family members coming to town…or lack thereof. The good news is that the weather in Vegas at this time is always beautiful and the town is generally quiet. Let me explain:
Some of the least busy and least expensive times to be in Las Vegas are between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Why? People generally like to be home for the holidays. A room that could cost $200 a night can be somewhere between $50-$75 if you book now due to higher vacancy rates. But let’s say you’re a local and RARELY visit the strip, you will basically have the town to yourself. Less chaos and access to more of the city. Well, sort of. We all know that Vegas is run by tourists…so don’t expect a post-apocalyptic scene from any movie.
Best places to eat:
Unless you are really into the traditional “let’s roast a turkey, have a million side dishes, decorate the house and smell like corn soufflé,” there are so many restaurants that are making this Thanksgiving mess-free and just as traditional for you and your loved ones. Why worry about cleaning the house, baking desserts, roasting a turkey, and the worst part…cleaning dishes? No. Thank you.
List of restaurants you can go to for a Thanksgiving feast:
Yukon Grille Steakhouse- For the corn chowder lovers, Yukon Grille is serving a traditional Thanksgiving feast for $25.99
Mon Ami Gabi – At this French-style bistro you can enjoy a 4 course meal for $49.95 per person
Fogo De Chao – For a Brazilian steakhouse experience, Fogo De Chao will be serving stuffing, cranberry relish, sweet potato casserole and roasted turkey all for $52.95
Baja Miguel’s- This 3 course meal will get you a traditional feast for $17.95
Cleo at SLS- “Cleopatra’s feast” and a “contemporary Thanksgiving meal with Mediterranean influences.” $60 per person, $50 for locals.
And if you’re saying, “Sivan, stop….I am eating at home, but what activities can I do to burn off the pumpkin pie?” I have some ideas ↓
Fall inspired activities:
Explore the Botanical Gardens at the Bellagio – Themed for fall
Springs Preserve – $9.95 for NV residents and open from 9a.m. to 5p.m.
Fall Festival at the Village in Lake Las Vegas – Free for all ages, through November 27th from 9a.m to 9p.m. there will be daily fall activities.
There’s still some time to decide, but thought I would throw some ideas out there. If you have any ideas of your own, feel free to comment and I will definitely check it out. Anyways, all this fall talk makes me want a Pumpkin Spice Latte.
