For Locals Only: It’s Time to Plan a Las Vegas Staycation

Couple Taking Selfie While on Las Vegas Staycation

As a Vegas local, you might not go into the city as often in order to avoid the tourists. But that certainly doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat yourself from time to time with a Las Vegas staycation! A staycation can be a very beneficial way to refresh and recharge, especially after the crazy year we have had.

When planning a staycation, there are many benefits that an out-of-town vacation cannot offer. The biggest benefit is travel time and the cost of travel. You will not have to spend money on a plane ticket or gas for a few-hour car ride, which means that money could be spent on a nicer room, an experience, or even a few more drinks. Another benefit of a staycation is helping the local economy. And with a city like Las Vegas, there is plenty to do to enjoy and appreciate everything it has to offer.

Be a tourist for a day! Walking around the Las Vegas Strip or Fremont Street, no one knows if you live here, or if you’re traveling from another state, or even another country. Get out and enjoy yourself, there is so much to experience in this wonderful city! Read on for how to plan the ideal staycation in Las Vegas.

Choosing the right hotel to stay in for your Vegas staycation is crucial, as you want to book a room somewhere that really lets you treat yourself. And though you’ll likely spend your staycation outside of your hotel room, comfort is key. Look for things like plush beds, high-tech features, killer views, and clear attention to detail. At Circa Resort, our rooms and suites offer a stylish and comfortable getaway to be your home away from home.

Also, staying somewhere fun certainly doesn’t hurt. There’s something for everyone at Circa to make your stay even better. From lounging by the pool at Circa Stadium Swim® and indulging at the many bars and restaurants to building up your adrenaline betting at Circa | Sports, you can cater your staycation to be whatever you please.


Grab a Bite to Eat

From a fancy steakhouse to just grabbing a quick bite to eat, Vegas is home to a number of cuisines and styles fit for any foody to have the best staycation ever. At Circa, we have it all. Looking for a nice date night? Barry’s Downtown Prime offers the finest steaks, seafood, and cocktails for a great night. Or, get a taste of cutting-edge take on Pan-Asian cuisine at 8 East.

Toast to the City

You live here, so you know: our city is great. And we think that deserves a toast. From some of the most stunning Las Vegas views from rooftop bars to bars with flair, there’s a drink for everyone. Ready to party? Go big or go home at Circa Bar or the 165-foot long MEGA BAR for some bartending flair. Have a drink at Overhang Bar to celebrate your sportsbook victories and cheer on your favorite team. If your staycation includes you feeling like a high roller, make an appearance at Legacy Club on the 60th floor of Circa to overlook the entire city from a stunning rooftop. You should also stop by Vegas Vickie’s to say hello to one of the city’s biggest icons.


Lounge by the Pool

In the desert heat, pool time is a must. Las Vegas has no shortage of pools and pool parties to choose from, whether you’re looking to lounge and relax or party and let loose. Stadium Swim at Circa is the newest top-of-the-line swim experience offered in Las Vegas. Enjoy hanging out by the pool while watching your favorite events on our massive 40-foot-tall screen. With 6 pools, 30 cabanas, and over 300 lounge chairs, there’s plenty of space for you to either cheer on your favorite team or relax with a cocktail in hand.


Bet On Sports in Style

Why enjoy one game or event at a time when you can enjoy them all at once? Your TV at home is great for watching one game, but imagine the energy of going to a sportsbook during your Las Vegas staycation. Now imagine watching every game on a 78M pixel screen. At Circa | Sports, you can be part of the largest betting experience in the world with three stories of sportsbook amenities. Overhang Bar located inside the sportsbook is open 24/7 for all your drink needs during games. Since you’re a local, betting on and watching your favorite games just got a whole lot better – staycation or not.

Try Your Luck at the Casino

If you’re feeling lucky on your staycation, the casino is the place to be – and Vegas is the place for casinos. Nothing quite beats the rush of a win while on the floor. With over 1,300 slot machines and 55 table games, Circa Casino is spaced out over two floors to satiate any gambling cravings. To make your casino visit even better, join the Club One Player’s Club for exclusive deals, free slot play, and more. The more you play, the more points you can score, which is certainly a perk when you live in the city and can reap the benefits whenever you please.


Get Some Culture

As a Vegas resident, you’re aware that the city has a lot more to offer than just casinos, gambling, and drinking. If you want a bit of culture during your Vegas staycation, make a visit to one of the many cultural sites in the city. A Downtown Las Vegas staple is the Neon Museum, where you can find many iconic Las Vegas signs that have been preserved. Or, get a bit of history at the Mob Museum (and also grab a drink at the speakeasy). Not necessarily in the mood for a museum? Another historical spot near Downtown is the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop that is famously featured on the History Channel show, Pawn Stars. From old Vegas items showing the city’s history to rare pieces from around the world, there are plenty of items to explore.


Next time you’re ready for a vacation, make it a staycation and experience all Las Vegas has to offer. Be a tourist for a few days and enjoy everything our city has to offer in your own backyard. Don’t forget to check out all we have to offer here at Circa to truly make it an unforgettable time!
