From highly 'grammable restaurants, to swanky suites and awe-inspiring shows, these Vegas experiences will all be a hit no matter what you're in town to celebrate.

Las Vegas will always be an “it” spot in the U.S., well-known for its nightlife and casinos, but there is so much more the city has to offer that goes underlooked.

We’ve compiled a list full of places to sleep, to dine – everything you need to have an amazing celebratory weekend in Sin City during these (still) unprecedented times.
