Why don’t the most exciting things that happen in Vegas, stay in Vegas?? Well, because I’m here to share them with you! I was lucky enough to spend my spring break (as a teacher) relaxing and playing for a week in Las Vegas with my hubby. It was exactly what the doctor ordered! We were excited to spend time by the pool and relax, but we had never ventured out to explore what Las Vegas had to offer. I knew I could count on Melissa from MLJ Vacay to help us plan the perfect itinerary for our trip… and oh, was it SO PERFECT!

Las Vegas has always been on our travel bucket list. When I thought about planning our extended weekend stay, I got a pit in my stomach. Planning out our itinerary in a city I have never visited gave me slight anxiety. That was when I knew I needed to reach out to the best travel planner I know- MLJ Vacay.

Melissa is a Minneapolis-based vacation planner that not only has the best-kept secrets of solo traveling (ok, she shares her secrets!), but also creates unique and personalized itineraries for every type of vacation. After reaching out to Melissa in a tizzy, she quickly calmed my spirits by assuring me that my vacation to Las Vegas would all be planned in no time! My husband and I knew we wanted to spend some time in the sunshine by the pool, but wanted Melissa to take care of our weekend plans. Melissa sent over a questionnaire that asked us specific questions about our preferences in food and activities to help make the perfect plan for us. We let Melissa know that we wanted to be as busy as possible, and let her know the vibe of the type of activities we liked. Within a few days, we had an amazing itinerary in our hands- with reservations already made!! As I looked over the itinerary, it was as if I had planned the vacation, but BETTER!!! My husband couldn’t believe how spot-on the plans were, and we both went into our trip with a huge weight lifted off of our shoulders.

Some of my favorite things that Melissa planned for us:

  • The Neon Museum: An amazing piece of the history and transformation of Las Vegas. This museum is a cemetery for all retired neon signs.
  • The High Roller: An observation wheel with 360 degree views of downtown Vegas. Pay a little extra for an open-bar experience!
  • The Seven Magic Mountains: This free experience boasts 7 colorful boulders in the middle of the desert. It’s Insta-heaven!
