Are you a single woman looking to plan a fun trip with your girlfriends? Las Vegas is a great destination, not only because there are tons of single men who flock there every week, but because the city has so much to offer. It’s a real adult playground.

When most people think of Las Vegas, they think of the strip with all of the high-end casinos and hotels and endless slot machines and opportunities to gamble. But what about the rest of Las Vegas? Depending on what you want to experience, there are plenty of things to do other than gamble or cruise the strip.

If you’re looking for a little relaxation during your stay, most of the hotels on the main strip offer deluxe spa services. The Venetian Hotel is one step above the rest however, housing the 134,000 square foot Canyon Ranch Spa, which is complete with every amenity conceivable in modern spa facilities. The European inspired “Aquavana,” which is an aqua thermal oasis, offers hydro spas with heated loungers that massage. If you want a cooler environment, the igloo room enhances the air with 3 arctic mist experiences. They even offer “Girls Night Out” packages with blow-outs and custom make-up design for your night out on the town.

If you’d rather bypass the whole spa experience and head straight for the clubs, you’re not alone. There are many to choose from, each with its own unique experience. Some of my favorites:

    • Pure at Caesar’s Palace. This club offers the 14,000-square foot “Terrace,” the largest year-round outdoor venue in Vegas with unparalleled views of the strip. Sip on a cocktail while lounging in one of their fabulous covered cabanas. The club offers four different rooms with different musical experiences, including the main room which often features celebrities doing surprise performances (DJ anyone)?
    • Minus Five at Mandalay Bay. If you’re looking for a truly unique experience, check out Minus Five, where everything from the chairs you sit in to the glasses you sip from are made of ice. They have an ice sculptor who recreates the space every 6-8 weeks, creating themes for the time of year, location, wildlife, or anything else you can imagine. They bundle you up in gloves and coats and usher you in to enjoy the space with one of their specialty vodka cocktails. Chill out and enjoy.
    • Tryst at Wynn. If you’re looking for a scene, this is the place to be. Tryst offers a 90-foot waterfall and open air dance space. Even when it’s packed, you have room to breathe. It’s a fantastic setting from one of the ritziest hotels in Vegas.
    • Tao at The Venetian. I love this place for its practicality, even though it can feel pretty claustrophobic at times. This feels more like a real club, with great music and even better food offerings (hello sushi bar)! The catwalk and moat bring you back to unreality – this is after all, Las Vegas.

Have fun!
