Vegas might be the city that never sleeps, but that doesn’t mean it’s an adult playground 24/7. In fact, if you’re younger than 21, there are certain places you can’t go and things you can’t do in Sin City at all—even with a fake ID. If you want to have fun in Vegas but avoid the crowds of kids running around, here are seven awesome things to do when you’re over 21 (or at least look like it).
Believe it or not, you can actually have fun in Las Vegas without gambling. Casinos are filled with table games, slot machines, and more. But did you know that there are tons of exciting non-gambling activities for adults? Here’s a list of Las Vegas activities that don’t involve money…just make sure to bring your ID because some of these places require you to be 21+.
2) Strip Clubs in Las Vegas
While Las Vegas is often associated with gambling, drinking, and partying, there are some fun activities for those who are of age. With your ID firmly in hand, head to one of Sin City’s many strip clubs. Most of these venues offer great drink specials and dancing that you can enjoy as a party of one or with a friend. Many of them also have shows where you can see scantily clad women perform sensual dances. If you want to make it an even more memorable experience, consider hiring one of these dancers for private entertainment back in your hotel room. It’s sure to be a night you won’t forget!
3) Adult-Only Shows
Las Vegas is famous for its shows, but if you’re under 21 you’re missing out on a lot of fun. Luckily, there are plenty of shows aimed at adults only, so if you’re looking for something different while on your trip, here are some ideas Absinthe, Chippendales, Crazy Girls, and Thunder From Down Under. And don’t forget about burlesque! Dita Von Teese has her own show in town called The Art of the Teese; she also performs regularly at The Chandelier Bar inside Caesars Palace. #1 Attraction: What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Well, that means that one of Sin City’s most popular attractions isn’t always suitable for kids—so skip The Strip and check out Fremont Street instead. This old-school casino district features plenty of classic bars and clubs where everyone can have a good time.
4) The Day Club pool parties
Pool parties are huge in Las Vegas. To enjoy them, you need to be a guest at one of the many hotels with an adults-only pool area. The biggest players include Encore Beach Club, Marquee Dayclub, and Tao Beach. These days it’s also becoming popular for day clubs like Rehab and Foxtail to have pool areas open to non-guests too! Just remember that these places fill up fast so if you want to go make sure you get there early. It can take hours to wait in line, especially on a weekend or during the summer months. If you don’t mind missing out on some of your party time (or just don’t want to deal with lines), book yourself a room at one of these spots instead. It will be much easier to jump right into all those pools once you arrive!
5) Hire an Escort
Escorts are not cheap, but if you want a classy date night or an evening of fun with another couple, hiring a professional companion is one of your best options. Escorts come from all over the world and from many backgrounds, so there’s no shortage of things to talk about! And, of course, it doesn’t hurt that they look good on your arm as you walk into any venue—from a swanky nightclub to a fine-dining restaurant. If you choose to hire an escort for either companionship or intimacy, make sure that he or she has undergone rigorous background checks and ask for references before booking. As always, trust your gut when hiring a service provider: if something feels off or uncomfortable, go with your instinct and don’t work with them. Also, be aware that laws regarding escorts vary by state; Las Vegas requires licensing by both residents and visitors of Nevada, while other states require licensing only for out-of-state visitors.
