Doing Las Vegas in Your 50s and 60s

Las Vegas may a city known for its excesses from its gambling dens to its partying places but it’s also a city for older adults. Your reasons for hitting The Sin City in your 50s and 60s may vary, from walking down memory lane to catching up with your lost youth, but you will find full satisfaction from it – if and when you know where to look, of course. Here’s the skinny on doing Las Vegas now!

Decide on Your Objective First

With so many things to do and places to go in Las Vegas, your first step should be deciding on your objective first. What do you want to do in Sin City – gamble, rest and relax, play tourist, or a combination of all three? You will be able to make a daily itinerary, which will maximize your time in the city, while also making allowances for spur-of-the-moment activities – you’re in Las Vegas, after all, where spontaneity will likely lead to more unexpected adventures.  

Enjoy the Food and Drinks in Style

In your younger years, you probably didn’t have the larger budget in your older years, a fact due to your fatter savings account and higher credit limit now. You will find plenty of fine dining restaurants in the city, too, which means more variety on your plate. You may even want to splurge on a fine dining experience at Caesar’s Palace, perhaps check out the sumptuous buffet at Wicked Spoon, considered to be one of the best in the entire city.  

At your age, fast-food simply will not do especially since life’s too short for nondescript food with bland flavors. You should treat yourself to the best in buffets especially the seafood, which is as abundant as they come in Las Vegas.  

Get Into the Groove

You only need to say your fantasies and your wishes can come true in Sin City. So many things to do and places to visit yet so little time – rocking out to the Rock of Ages; gaping at the Cirque de Soleil acts; sinking golf balls at the world-class courses; enjoying the musical residences of the best musicians including Rod Stewart, Elton John, and Lionel Richie; and checking out the Bellagio Conservatory, to name a few. Let’s just say that you have the opportunity to make your grandkids regret the day they ever taught you to use the selfie stick and post photos on Facebook.

Indeed, Las Vegas can be your oyster and it starts now!
