Las Vegas, baby!  That’s right, it’s time to book your ticket and R-E-L-A-X, yeah in my head that came out like Aretha Franklin’s “Respect,” but it doesn’t have quite the same effect. Still, vacation never sounded so good, so let’s get down to the nitty-gritty details and plan your itinerary. Las Vegas is perfect because there’s so much to do. And so, I present you with my go-to guide on what to do in this great city:

For the foodie:
Have you died and gone to food heaven? Yes, yes you have. Las Vegas is loaded with gourmet restaurants, I’m talking Michelin stars, world-class chefs, and a plethora of seared steak and soufflés. If you’re in the mood for pizza, there’s a restaurant for you, like 800 Degrees Pizza Restaurant.  If you’re craving Vietnamese cuisine, there’s also a restaurant for you – head to Banana Leaf Asian Restaurant right on the strip in the Riviera.

For the athlete:
Check out Bally’s Tennis Pro Shop. They have 8 outdoor tennis courts along with a pro shop.  Something fun to do in the morning or during an afternoon to get your heart rate up and a little exercise in.

For the shopaholic:
Las Vegas fashion stores extend beyond the length of a street, they are everywhere. A true dream for the shopaholic and addicted window-shopper, plus you can pick your preference: indoor or outdoor! If you are in the mood to browse some of the higher end stores, head to Crystals at CityCenter. They have brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Ermenegildo Zegna, Tiffany & Co., and the list goes on. Feel like taking a stroll down a Paris street? Visit Le Boulevard Shops in Paris Las Vegas and enjoy authentic French boutiques, wine & cheese shops, and more.  I’m assuming you already have a procedure in warning your credit card company in advance. Yeah you might want to let them know, now.

For the snoozer:
Want to sleep in? Want to completely relax and be worry-free? Perfect! Las Vegas is full of resorts, all of which include luxury spas, crazy pools and total relaxation! Plus, you’re guaranteed sunshine (for those hoping to catch some rays). Each resort comes with its own unique attractions, you’re bound to find something that interests you. Who knew there was a place in the world where boredom truly does not exist?

For the musician/artist/theater-lover:
Entertainment galore! Theater, comedy, dance, music, you pick a genre, and ta-da Vegas complies! Seriously, just tell me what you want to see/watch/do, Vegas is your genie.  Want to see beautiful dance routines in a 1.1- million-gallon tank of water that serves as the stage? No problem, Vegas has it. Get tickets to Le Rêve – The Dream at the Wynn Las Vegas Theater.

These are memories you’re going to want to take with you, so don’t forget to bring your phone charger and remember to take lots of photos!
