If you love Las Vegas, but the days of wild bachelorette parties and spring breaks are behind you, consider a grown-up Sin City getaway with your girlfriends.

From shopping to spa days, there's more to Las Vegas than pool parties and nightclubs. If you're ready to pack your bags and hit the strip, keep reading for must-do ideas for your itinerary.

Shop till you drop

Buffets aren't the only place you can find variety in Vegas. Fashion Show Mall is one of the country's largest shopping centers, with more than 250 retail stores and restaurants. Or grab the girls, have a warm-up cocktail, then hop in a cab to CityCenter's Crystals retail district for some serious retail therapy. From Louis Vuitton to Miu Miu, you're certain to find your retail muse.

Wine and dine... and wine some more

Las Vegas is home to incredible wine bars, including The Wine Cellar at the Rio. You can view 50,000 bottles of wine and sample more than 100 varieties by the glass. If you're up for a little history lesson, you can even see a rare bottle of Madeira originally owned by Thomas Jefferson.

Aureole at Mandalay Bay is heaven for wine lovers, with more than 10,000 bottles to choose from and "wine angels" that float up and down four stories of vino to retrieve your selection.


Las Vegas is known for being a mecca for pleasure-seekers, and the spas live up to its reputation. Sahra at the Cosmopolitan has stepped indulgence up a notch with their signature spa suites. You and your friends can make a day of your great escape and get pampered in total privacy. The suites feature flat-screen TVs, a wet bar, a private treatment area, side-by-side whirlpool tubs and a steam room.

If all of the indulging you've done during your stay has you craving a natural, holistic spa experience, you might want to try the new Vdara Spa at CityCenter. At Vdara you can duck into a private cabana and escape to Thailand (if only in your mind) with treatments that feature lemongrass, kaffir lime, jasmine and hibiscus flowers.

They say what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. With enough wine, shopping and spa time, you'll want to stay in Vegas too... forever!
