Livin' Local: A Tour for All Tastes

We all have one – Aunt Beth, Uncle Albert or a distant cousin who seems to know all the best places, shows, deals and tours to take out-of-town guests when they visit Las Vegas. The starry-eyed tourists get off the plane, are greeted by said family member at baggage claim and promptly whisked away for a weekend trip they’ll never forget. 

Then, there’s you. Between back-to-school homework help, work, the gym and holiday gift shopping, somehow planning the perfect itinerary for your holiday visitors didn’t make the top priority list. You want to show them a good time, but some have different tastes (who knows what your niece on winter break from grad school wants to do), and for reasons unbeknownst to you, your motherboard has been completely stripped of ideas for a good restaurant aside from the one you frequent, maybe too often, down the street from your house. Well we are here to help! 

Here are some great ideas for tour itineraries around our beloved city for different tastes and interests. We know there’s not one true stereotype, so feel free to pick and choose from each itinerary to get the perfect tour for your guests! You don’t even have to give us credit for making it look easy, but beware… soon Aunt Beth may be calling you for sightseeing advice.
