A Guy’s Weekend in Vegas Baby!

Home of the bachelor party, the quickie wedding (and the even “quickier” divorce), there’s a reason the town’s motto is “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” If you’re heading for an unabashed weekend (or week, or month, or…you get the picture) of debauchery with your buddies, you’ll want to check out some of these activities fit for the most memorable of guy’s weekends.

Ladies and gentleman (but mostly gentleman), we give you the Travel Globe Guide to a Guy’s Weekend in Vegas.

Hofbrauhaus

Hofbrauhaus

This fixture just off the infamous is the starting point for many a night to remember, and plenty more forgotten nights. It’s the quintessential German brew haus, with larger than life steins, free-flowing beers, and buxom bar maids as far as the eye can see. There’s even something called a “Jagermeister Spanking” that’s sure to get you off your butt.

Dig This

DIg This Las Vegas

If you’re chained to a cubicle from 9 to 5 for your regular job and have perhaps dreamed of one day getting your hands dirty by dabbling in construction, then check out Dig This. You get to push stuff around by driving a bulldozer, or use a digger to excavate a an empty construction lot, and even play a spirited game of “Digger Basketball.” It’s Bob the Builder for big boys.

Sky Combat Ace

If you count Top Gun as one of your favourite movies, or plane-spotting as one of your preferred hobbies, Sky Combat Ace is definitely a bucket list experience you’ll never forget. Flying with a real fighter pilot, you’ll be shown various aerial maneuvers such as roll, four-point turn, loops, and spins. Best of all, once your pilot shows you how it’s done, you get to try the moves yourself. You’ll also get to speeds of up to 7 Gs. Although the experience can be pricey, for a lot of chaps it winds up being a lot cheaper than a night at the slots.

Cirque du Soleil

ZARKANA Cirque du Soleil

I know what you’re thinking – what’s a visit to Cirque du Soleil doing in a guy’s weekend round-up? The thing is, one show in particular is a metaphor for Vegas (and in particular a night out in Vegas) itself. Zarkana at Aria Las Vegas starts out as an abandoned stage, it slowly becomes populated with a motley crew of absurd characters, it turns mind-blowingly crazy and chaotic, and ends up being the most memorable of celebrations. And isn’t that what Vegas is all about?   

  

Things for families to do in Las Vegas
