Girls' Weekend in Las Vegas
Nightclubs: A girls’ weekend in Vegas would be incomplete without at least one night to regret for many years. So, get the girls together for shots, dancing, and general debauchery at Chateau in the Paris Las Vegas. It’s sleek, dark, and has luxe chateau-inspired accents. One Vegas club that refuses to die is XS in the Wynn — it’s consistently on top ten lists and in de-tagged Facebook photo albums. If you need to really let go and only a mega-club will do the trick, head to Marquee for all the fist pumping and bottle service you’d ever need.
Pool Party: You didn’t suffer through extra hours at the gym just to dance in a dark club. Shimmying down to that bikini has never been more of an event than it is at Vegas’ pool parties. Skip the topless pools and spring for the “only in Vegas” wild time at MGM Grand’s Wet Republic. Cabanas only seem unnecessary until you’re trying to find an inch of free space for your purse, shirt, or hotel key card. Encore’s Beach Club is fantastic for people watching if you feel like avoiding the just-off-the-Jersey-Shore crowd.
Spa Day: Spending the day at a wild pool party can leave you very much in need of some TLC. Luckily, Vegas is home to unbridled luxury in the form of facials, massages, acupuncture, and some very inventive masks and wraps. The Canyon Ranch Spa at the Venetian is Vegas’ outpost of one of the country’s most famous and beloved spa destinations. They promise to revive patrons from head to toe with tension balms, sea foam mud masks, and healing cocoons. The Mandarin Oriental Spa (pictured) is, likewise, a well-known bastion of relaxation and rejuvenation. From the Hammam to the vitality pools and ice fountains, you’ll float out of the spa and, well, back onto the Strip. (Photo courtesy of the Mandarin Oriental)
