Las Vegas Tips:

1. See a show
It’s Las Vegas! There are shows every night. Check the schedules before you get to Vegas. Whether you’re a concert goer or a Broadway baby, there is something for everyone. If you’re a Parrot Head, you’re in luck, Jimmy Buffett will be in town this year!

2. Enjoy the hotel
You’re staying at one of the pillar hotels of Las Vegas. Check out the famous beach, the world-class casino, and of course the restaurants. Skipping meals is prohibited, the food in Las Vegas is to die for! Don’t miss the 180-degree view of the city from the Skyfall Lounge at the Delano. When you need a moment to relax, schedule a service at the Bathhouse Spa on the property. There is so much to enjoy at Mandalay Bay!

3. Explore the strip
Staying at Mandalay Bay means you won’t be bored, but if you run out of things to do, take a walk. Really! Head out to the Las Vegas Strip and people watch! Las Vegas Boulevard is one of the most iconic roads in America. Our favorite “must dos” are seeing the city on the High Roller Ferris Wheel, watching the dancing Fountains at the Bellagio, and snapping selfies at the Welcome to Las Vegas sign.

There you have it, a quick and easy-to-follow guide to Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas! You’ll certainly have an amazing time no matter what you have planned. Three days of exciting car action, exceptional VIP experiences, and Elvis impersonators are sure to be the highlight of your year! Just remember, “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.”
