Groups Flock to Las Vegas

With Las Vegas dubbed the Entertainment Capital of the World, it's no wonder that our research at TripHub shows more groups planning trips to Las Vegas than any other destination.

Las_vegas_group_travel2_1Surprised? Don't be. Las Vegas has long been popular for bachelor parties, bachelorette parties, weekend gambling getaways (and gawking) for guys, easy-bake wedding ceremonies or full-blown weddings, and a launch pad for visiting the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and other area attractions. And when conventioneers converge there, attendees often extend their stay and invite family or friends to join them.

Vegas continues to evolve, offering world-class shows (think Cirque du Soleil's Mystere, O, Zumanity, plus a bevy of Broadway, magic, and variety shows that thrill 'til dawn), concerts by renowned music artists, and more high-rolling resort casinos than anywhere else on Earth.

Even the anti-glitz travelers (ahem, like myself) who prefer tamer, more au naturale vacations, often admit that Las Vegas is good for entertaining and best enjoyed with a group of friends when you can double dare them to keep betting on the roulette table or give them a dollar bill to tip the dancer (that would be for the guys). The sweeping view from the top of Mandalay Bay is worth seeing, the Bellagio waterworks display dazzling, a massage at any of the luxury hotel spas relaxing, and other activities can fill your every waking moment. Sleep when you return home.

Planning a trip to Las Vegas with family or friends? Here are ideas to get you started:

  • Las_vegas_group_travel_2Plan a weekend getaway with friends, bachelor(ette) party, family vacation, or wedding using TripHub by setting up a home page for your group, inviting guests, discussing hotels, sharing itinerary information, and more
  • Book a hotel on the Las Vegas Strip
  • Soar above Las Vegas on a helicopter night flight
  • Hover over the Grand Canyon by air, helicopter, or tour via bus
  • Tour Hoover Dam, engineering masterpiece
  • Catch Las Vegas shows from Splash to Blue Man Group
  • Las Vegas wedding chapels and locations
  • Fremont Street Experience

Great article, thanks for all the information. My daughter-in-law is heading to Vegas this weekend and did some research on kid friendly things to do. Here are a few:
Shark Reef aquarium at the Mandalay Bay, Obelisk Search ride at the Luxor and Merlin's Magic Motion ride at the Excalibur. The MGM has a Lion Habitat exhibit, the Flamingo has a Wildlife Habitat and the Mirage overwhelms them all with the Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat, White Tiger Habitat and the nightly Volcano Eruptions.

Horseback riding, jet ski rentals and other kid friendly activities can be found at http://www.affiliate.viator.com/brochure/results_1.jsp;jsessionid=aurGLOdwUwv_?__VIEWSTATE=dDwtNTAyMjUxODE4Ozs%2B&CALL=SEARCH&REGION=Nevada&CITY=Las+Vegas&SETNAME=SYDNEY&AUID=2934&CONTINENT=North+America&COUNTRY=United+States+of+America&SEARCHBYBUTTON=City&CITYREGION=Las+Vegas&PRODUCT=&KEYWORD=&panel=_ctl3&tab=0&tabId=_ctl3_ctl0_ctl0.
