The Positive Side of Vacation Package Deals

If you’re a longtime reader of this site, you know that I tend to focus on independent travel. But the truth is there are many ways to have a great travel experience that doesn’t focus on hyper-adventure.

Typical travelers only have about 10 days to spare in their busy lives, which could make a vacation package a smart choice. If you’re unaware what a vacation package is, it usually refers to researching for vacation deals that include the cost of a hotel, airfare, and even a rental car in one price.

Travel Guide to Las Vegas for Non-Gamblers

Las Vegas has a larger-than-life reputation that’s often portrayed in films and in the media as the casino mecca of the world. In the film “Ocean’s Eleven,” the portrayal of flashy wealth and high rollers makes Las Vegas alluring with the potential promise of winning thousands or millions of dollars by spending hours gambling in a casino.

Despite the tempting glitz of Las Vegas, you might be the type of traveler who doesn’t want to spend all your time in a casino.

While the architectural design of many casinos keeps you inside, you can find ways to escape them and sample a different side to Las Vegas.

Even though you may want to sample casinos only for a short amount of time, you can begin researching hotel deals and searching for hotels with casinos attached. Since gaming hotels are architecturally planned to encourage visitors to stay indoors, these facilities have several on-site restaurants and entertainment venues. Having this immediate access allows you to conveniently find food to eat or join an entertainment show once you’ve returned from sightseeing off-site.

No Casinos At All

Perhaps you want to avoid casinos altogether to mitigate the higher cost of staying in a gaming hotel. My suggestion is to seek out non-gaming hotels. A thorough search on the internet will offer more than 30 options to choose from. To further boost your cost savings measures, using coupons from Priceline is a terrific way to save more money.

Hike Red Rock

Las Vegas is in Nevada’s Mojave Desert, which affords the traveler with ample opportunities to experience nature. Just outside the city is gorgeous Red Rock Canyon, offering outdoor lovers easy

Traveling to Nashville

Flying to Nashville is not difficult, since many major airlines stop at the Nashville International Airport. Deals as low as $67 for a one-way flight are easily found on travel search engines. However, another rewarding way to explore the city is by driving your own car or renting one.

Getting Around

Once you arrive, staying in the downtown area places you within walking distance of landmarks, restaurants, and any other special events happening during your visit. If you prefer something faster than walking, the tourism board has set up a free transportation service called the Music City Circuit, which travels throughout the downtown core every 10 to 15 minutes.

Best Music Venues

Obviously, where you choose to catch live music depends on your musical tastes. If you enjoy bluegrass, country, rock, blues, or anything else I haven’t named here, you’ll find these musical styles and more in this city.
