If your mother ever told you never to spend all of your allowance in one place, that’s because she’s never been to Las Vegas. That’s right; The Entertainment Capital of the World offers plenty of ways to spread the wealth around when you’re looking to have the ultimate vacation. With Sin City excitement in mind, here are 4 ways to spend a few months’ salary in Las Vegas, Nevada.

1. Stay in Luxury

Staying in Vegas and playing in Vegas go hand-in-hand when you decide to spend your dough on casino accommodations. The Vegas Strip has plenty of luxury lodging from rooms with great fountain views at The Bellagio to the lavish Roman decadence of Caesars Palace.

For vacationers with a love for the beach, Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino has one of the largest pools on the Vegas Strip as well as its very own shark reef, which is separate from the pool of course. If you’re in the mood for Egyptian style alongside some of the hottest gambling in town, The Luxor is a great place to call home too.

2. Try Your Hand at Gambling

From classic casinos like The Flamingo, Riviera, and Tropicana to modern gambling hotspots like The Cosmopolitan and The Palazzo, Las Vegas is a gambling empire for everything from slots to table games like Blackjack and Roulette.

If you want to spend a portion of your $10,000 gambling the night away, then try casino crawling. A casino crawl boils down to gambling for an hour in every major casino on the Vegas Strip. Just remember to gamble responsibly and cut your losses when the hour is up because Vegas isn’t any fun when you’re penniless.

3. Take in the Shows

Vegas is anything but boring, which is exactly why it’s called The Entertainment Capital of the World. In keeping with entertainment, why not spend some of your cash taking in Las Vegas’ world-renowned shows? Whether you like music, magic, or acrobatics, Vegas has absolutely every form of entertainment there is.

The Mirage is the home of Cirque du Soleil, which is one of the most high-flying, creative, stunningly beautiful acrobatic shows in the world all to set to music by The Beatles. If Broadway musicals are more your thing, then Paris Las Vegas has the hottest ticket in town with The Jersey Boys.

4. Dine Like a Winner

Before you spend all your money on casinos and shows, put some cash aside for delicious eats because Vegas has some of the best restaurants and buffets money can buy. For a formal dining option, Sage has everything from foie gras to braised veal cheeks steps away from the Strip.

Likewise, when it comes to the ultimate Vegas dining experience, there’s no better culinary route to take than the buffets. From the Wicked Spoon Buffet at The Cosmopolitan to The Buffet at the Bellagio, the Vegas Strip has mouth-watering menus to fit every appetite.

Instead of letting those $10,000 burn a hole in your pocket, ignore your mother’s advice and spend it all in Vegas with the suggestions above.
