How To Avoid Issues During Big Game Weekend In Las Vegas
The Super Bowl will transform Las Vegas into a hub of betting and all things football during this year’s Super Bowl LVIII on Feb. 10
Las Vegas will expect about 330,000 visitors during Super Bowl weekend, according to a report by Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority .
This will be one of the largest events in Las Vegas’ history. In fact, a report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal said that there’s only a small number of landing slots for private jets available due to the demand of the event. So, that statistic can prepare us for the amount of revenue and wealth that will shower into the city.
How Can We Prepare for Las Vegas’ Big Game Frenzy?
Patience and planning will be key. For starters, everyone should expect delays and understand how to navigate around the closures and construction that will take place during the event. There will be different flows of traffic, and tons of huge party busses and tourists that will clog the streets. We can even expect the backroads like Dean Martin Drive or Frank Sinatra will be congested with heavy traffic. The game will impact everything from the famous fountains at the Bellagio to drive lanes on Las Vegas Boulevard, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Many hotels are expected to be at 100% occupancy and priced at a premium. Fox 11 Los Angeles reports that hotel rooms are at record-breaking high prices. According to Steve Hill, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, he suggests expanding your hotels search to Downtown Las Vegas, Henderson and even cheaper rates will most likely be in Mesquite and Laughlin.
As a local, I recommend planning your dinners in advanced. Plan where you want to eat and get reservations because the Super Bowl will cause these restaurants to be packed. Getting a table will be impossible. Be up to date with local news and weather reports because the weather can be unpredictable in Las Vegas.
The Big Game will be intense and exciting. Las Vegas will see an influx of people, money and activities. Be safe, vigilant and pay attention. We hope you have an amazing Super Bowl weekend.
