Where to stay for Thanksgiving
Paris Hotel & Casino has dirt cheap deals around Thanksgiving. Check in on November 25th, the day before Thanksgiving, to beat the holiday rush and you can stay for as little as $79 a night according to the current rate calendar. Your Thursday night stay is just $124 and your Friday night stay edges up a bit to $134. But stay on Saturday night and you’ll pay just $94. Compare this to the week before where Thursday will cost you $174 and Friday will cost you $289 and it’s clear that Thanksgiving is prime travel time. Rates change all the time, so check the official Paris calendar for the most up to date rates.
Where to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving Day feast
If you’re looking for a Thanksgiving feast, several Las Vegas restaurants have a history of treating people to exquisite Thanksgiving cuisine. Last year, db Brasserie at Venetian offered an incredible Thanksgiving feast including fall squash soup, an heirloom beet salad, turkey, Yukon Gold puree, stuffing, and gravy, plus pumpkin pie with vanilla bean gelato for dessert. And the best part, it was just $48 per person. It’s not clear what they’re doing this year, but don’t be afraid to call around to find something delicious.
What to see on Thanksgiving
Need a break from the tables or stuffing your face with food? Kick back and watch a show. You can catch Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil on Thanksgiving Day at 9:30pm for $38 off the regular price. For example, the best seats in the house will cost you $122 instead of $160 for a limited time. The same tickets the show the following Sunday will cost you $160, so it’s well worth it.
Where to shop the day after Thanksgiving
If you’re in Las Vegas for Thanksgiving, you won’t want to miss the Black Friday sales. While you might not find amazing deals right on the strip (after all, they want people who won big at the casino to pay top dollar) head over to the Las Vegas North Premium Outlets where you can enjoy 540,000 square feet of great shopping. You’re sure to find some Black Friday door crashers, so check it out.
Can’t travel for Thanksgiving? Bring Vegas home
Airfare isn’t exactly cheap at Thanksgiving. At times, it seems as though the entire country is at the airport. If you find it to expensive to find a flight or you’d rather just spend time with family, that’s also a great call. But if you want to sneak in a little Vegas time, just hop on Slots of Vegas. You’ll find all your favorite games, all without having to leave home.
