On the last Monday in May every year, Memorial Day is for remembering those who defended our Republic with the ultimate sacrifice. The fallen. While serving in the United States Armed Forces, the men, and women that died in the performance of their military duties. This is a time to honor these brave patriots’ commitment to honor, duty and Country.
Thanks to them, we have the freedom to observe this holiday. And there is no place better to celebrate our liberties on Memorial Day than Las Vegas! In 2022, Memorial Day falls on May 30th, and over the weekend, the city will be bustling with activities and events. Parades, concerts, shows, pool parties, golfing, picnics, tours, and much more. All waiting for just one thing. You!
If you’re on the Vegas Strip this Memorial Day weekend, you’ll want to know where the party’s at. Here’s a tip. It’s at Harrah’s Carnaval Court. Essentially an open-air street party at the center of the Strip. Day and night, you can enjoy music from the best live cover bands in the city who keep the lively, diverse crowds entertained. Bottle-flipping mixologists dazzle as they prepare your drinks behind (and at times on top of) the bar. And if you’re feeling lucky, you can also test your skill at several outdoor live blackjack tables. See our friends Original Chaos rock the stage there Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 2 pm – 7 pm.
If it’s a pool party you seek, you couldn’t be in a better place. Las Vegas Day Clubs are, unquestionably, one of the coolest places to chill on hot summer days! Endless sun, ice-cold drinks, and the hottest DJs around combine to make your pool party experience in Las Vegas totally awesome. You’re going to want to consider beaching yourself at Marquee at The Cosmopolitan, Daylight at Mandalay Bay, Drai’s at The Cromwell, or Encore Beach Club, between a few others.
Maybe you’re into a thrill or two while you’re making the most of your Memorial Day holiday. In that case, the Fly Linq Zipline is your ticket. After you prove how daring you are, you can relax with a cold drink on the Happy Half Hour at the High Roller Observation Wheel. It will be right smack in front of you when you land. There you and your mates can hop into a pod for a private open bar and a highly-Instagrammable, picturesque ride!
You’ll undoubtedly have worked up an appetite after all that excitement, and there’s nothing better than BBQ on a warm summer weekend in Las Vegas. Or is there? How about BBQ delivered! Whether you’re at a hotel, condo, timeshare, or home, Big Billy’s BBQ, located in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, will bring you the meat (and all the fixings, sides, and sauces). The talented Pitmasters at Big Billy’s have taken slow-cooked southern BBQ to a whole new level. Use the code VEGAS4LOCALS when ordering online to receive a savory 25% discount.
