10 Las Vegas Hotels for People who Love Travel

10 Las Vegas Hotels for People who Love Travel

Las Vegas – the world’s capital of fun – is undoubtedly a must-visit destination for all travelers. Here you won’t only get a chance to party all night long, play games in hundreds of casinos and have fun in many amazing shows, but also explore the surrounding areas as well. In fact, there are some pretty cool things you can do around, which don’t necessarily include gambling.

However, if you really want to get everything possible from your visit to Vegas, you need to spend a few days there. And this won’t happen if you don’t book hotels! Therefore, bellow we share a list of our favorite top 10 Las Vegas hotels you should book for your weekend’s trip. It won’t only let you enjoy the city that truly never sleeps, but also relax a bit since these picks are easy on your wallet too.

1. Bellagio Las Vegas

We just can’t talk about hotels in Vegas and not mention this world-known hotel, pictured in many movies and considered as one of the symbols of the city. The Bellagio is truly one of the first hotels you should consider booking for your weekend’s stay, and there are no reasons why not: Fantastic location with breathtaking views from rooms, perfect service, and the overall feeling that you are treated the best will never abandon you.

2. The Mirage Hotel & Casino

Another hotel we would love to offer you is The Mirage Hotel & Casino, located almost in the heart of Las Vegas. Surrounded by two other pretty famous hotels, Caesar and the Treasure Island, and with the Venetian and Palazzo directly across the street, this hotel stands out thanks to the room rates, which will be easy to afford for sure.

3. The Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino

Cheap hotels in Las Vegas can always be your top priority, but if you are planning to stay at Vegas only for a few nights and want to pamper yourself seriously – choose the Palazzo! It is one of the legendary sites in the area, well-known for excellent quality and price balance. Suites are huge, pool area is enormous, but one thing which won’t be tremendous will be the bill since a weekend for two here should be around $206!

4. Vdara Hotel & Spa

Another hotel we would really love you to try out is Vdara Hotel and Spa, which stands out from the crowd thanks to its unique interior. Huge, open rooms and modern design create a very sophisticated feeling everyone will love. It doesn’t have a casino in the building, so if you are coming to Las Vegas not just for gambling, Vdara is perfect for you.

5. Golden Nugget Hotel

This is one of the priciest hotels on this list (however, still relatively cheap), hence Golden Nugget indeed is worth the golden title in its name. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and don’t cost that much if you think about the value. Naturally, the hotel is equipped with many great must-have Las Vegas features like a huge pool, casino and many bars and restaurants, so there might not even be a need to leave for a while – the hotel has it all. Prices for a weekend here vary around $244 for two people.

6. Mandarin Oriental

One of our personal favorites is the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Las Vegas. Why is it our top pick? Well, first of all, because we love eco-friendliness and we try to be as green as we can, and in fact Mandarin is well known as one of the greenest hotels you can spend a night at! Second of all, we just love the interior of it. Third, the location is also fantastic – it is surrounded by many attractions suitable for all kinds of travelers’ taste. So, hop in, get ready to pay around $279 and enjoy your weekend in Las Vegas!

7. Venetian Resort Hotel Casino

Yet another iconic hotel you should consider choosing for your weekend at Vegas is the Venetian. Many people find this hotel being one of the most beautiful ones in the whole city and this is easy to understand once you come into the lobby of it. After all, it is decorated keeping up with Italian, and in particular, Venetian style elements so if you love Italy, but equally love Vegas – the Venetian is the one. Good news is that weekend here will cost you around $249!

8. New York – New York Hotel and Casino

Once we started talking about hotels in Vegas which were designed to celebrate one or another place, we had to mention the hotel that was built keeping NYC in mind – hence, New York Hotel and Casino is our 8th pick. Ideally located, sophisticated and equipped with amazingly friendly staff – what else can you wish for from a hotel? The weekend at this hotel for two will cost you only $150!

9. Hilton Grand Vacations on the Boulevard

Another hotel, which is well located and can amaze you with its excellent price and quality is Hilton Grand Vacations on the Boulevard. It is surely one of the best choices for budget-caution travelers since a weekend here will need just $169 from your wallet – that is not that much to leave! Furthermore, after reading reviews online about this hotel, one thing comes clear: People do love it since it is a little bit further away from all the buzz of Las Vegas, yet still comfortably close to all the stores and clubs and casinos (hotel doesn’t have a casino in its building). Excellent choice indeed!

10. Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino

And the last hotel we would like to recommend you is Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. It is one of those hotels that is worth the title of having the best value for money. Rooms here are spacious, clean, service is excellent, and it has everything you might be looking for in a hotel. Here you will find great places to eat, drink, have fun and relax. Moreover, Mandalay is just around 5 minutes away from one of the airports in Vegas, so if you are a total newbie in town, you won’t have to wander around trying to reach the hotel you book. Finally, a weekend here would cost you $145, which is the smallest price range on this list!

7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

Learning how to get in shape and set goals is important if you’re looking to live a healthier lifestyle and get closer to your goal weight. While this does require changes to your daily routine, you’ll find that you are able to look and feel better in only two weeks.

Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to get in shape. Although anyone can cover the basics (eat right and exercise), there are some things that I could only learn through trial and error. Let’s cover some of the most important points for how to get in shape in two weeks.

1. Exercise Daily

It is far easier to make exercise a habit if it is a daily one. If you aren’t exercising at all, I recommend starting by exercising a half hour every day. When you only exercise a couple times per week, it is much easier to turn one day off into three days off, a week off, or a month off.

If you are already used to exercising, switching to three or four times a week to fit your schedule may be preferable, but it is a lot harder to maintain a workout program you don’t do every day.

Be careful to not repeat the same exercise routine each day. If you do an intense ab workout one day, try switching it up to general cardio the next. You can also squeeze in a day of light walking to break up the intensity.

2. Duration Doesn’t Substitute for Intensity

Once you get into the habit of regular exercise, where do you go if you still aren’t reaching your goals? Most people will solve the problem by exercising for longer periods of time, turning forty-minute workouts into two hour stretches. Not only does this drain your time, but it doesn’t work particularly well.

One study shows that “exercising for a whole hour instead of a half does not provide any additional loss in either body weight or fat”[1].

This is great news for both your schedule and your levels of motivation. You’ll likely find it much easier to exercise for 30 minutes a day instead of an hour. In those 30 minutes, do your best to up the intensity to your appropriate edge to get the most out of the time.

3. Acknowledge Your Limits

Many people get frustrated when they plateau in their weight loss or muscle gaining goals as they’re learning how to get in shape. Everyone has an equilibrium and genetic set point where their body wants to remain. This doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve your fitness goals, but don’t be too hard on yourself if you are struggling to lose weight or put on muscle.

Acknowledging a set point doesn’t mean giving up, but it does mean realizing the obstacles you face.

Expect to hit a plateau in your own fitness results[2]. When you expect a plateau, you can manage around it so you can continue your progress at a more realistic rate. When expectations meet reality, you can avoid dietary crashes.

4. Eat Healthy, Not Just Food That Looks Healthy

Know what you eat. Don’t fuss over minutia like whether you’re getting enough Omega 3’s or tryptophan, but be aware of the big things. Look at the foods you eat regularly and figure out whether they are healthy or not. Don’t get fooled by the deceptively healthy snacks just pretending to be good for you.

The basic nutritional advice includes:

  • Eat unprocessed foods
  • Eat more veggies
  • Use meat as a side dish, not a main course
  • Eat whole grains, not refined grains[3]

Eat whole grains when you want to learn how to get in shape.

    5. Watch Out for Travel

    Don’t let a four-day holiday interfere with your attempts when you’re learning how to get in shape. I don’t mean that you need to follow your diet and exercise plan without any excursion, but when you are in the first few weeks, still forming habits, be careful that a week long break doesn’t terminate your progress.

    This is also true of schedule changes that leave you suddenly busy or make it difficult to exercise. Have a backup plan so you can be consistent, at least for the first month when you are forming habits.

    If travel is on your schedule and can’t be avoided, make an exercise plan before you go[4], and make sure to pack exercise clothes and an exercise mat as motivation to keep you on track.

    6. Start Slow

    Ever start an exercise plan by running ten miles and then puking your guts out? Maybe you aren’t that extreme, but burnout is common early on when learning how to get in shape. You have a lifetime to be healthy, so don’t try to go from couch potato to athletic superstar in a week.

    If you are starting a running regime, for example, run less than you can to start. Starting strength training? Work with less weight than you could theoretically lift. Increasing intensity and pushing yourself can come later when your body becomes comfortable with regular exercise.

    7. Be Careful When Choosing a Workout Partner

    Should you have a workout partner? That depends. Workout partners can help you stay motivated and make exercising more fun. But they can also stop you from reaching your goals.

    My suggestion would be to have a workout partner, but when you start to plateau (either in physical ability, weight loss/gain, or overall health) and you haven’t reached your goals, consider mixing things up a bit.

    If you plateau, you may need to make changes to continue improving. In this case it’s important to talk to your workout partner about the changes you want to make, and if they don’t seem motivated to continue, offer a thirty day break where you both try different activities.

    I notice that guys working out together tend to match strength after a brief adjustment phase. Even if both are trying to improve, something seems to stall improvement once they reach a certain point. I found that I was able to lift as much as 30-50% more after taking a short break from my regular workout partner.

    Final Thoughts

    Learning how to get in shape in as little as two weeks sounds daunting, but if you’re motivated and have the time and energy to devote to it, it’s certainly possible.

    Find an exercise routine that works for you, eat healthy, drink lots of water, and watch as the transformation begins.
