Halloween in Las Vegas: Road Trip Edition

I seem to say this about every road trip we do, but hands down road tripping to Las Vegas for Halloween was one of the coolest things we’ve done.

On any given day, Las Vegas can be a ton of fun. Mix that with a bunch of dressed up drunken crazies and you have yourself Halloween (or an average Tuesday).

While road tripping around Utah and Arizona, we stopped into Las Vegas to celebrate Halloween. Like many of our road trips, we were only there for 24 hours, but it was an awesome 24 hours.

Las Vegas is great in that not only can you drink while walking down the streets, you can also find entertainment almost anywhere. We definitely saved on club cover fees just by walking the strip and finding your own entertainment. It seems on Halloween everyone is extra nice, really drunk, and they’re all there just to have a good time.

We chose to do Las Vegas for Halloween because the Flamingo room rates were only $52/night. With 3 of us splitting the cost, it was a very cheap night in Las Vegas.

This was our first time staying at the Flamingo hotel, and it was a lot nicer than I expected! We’ve been through a lot of the nicer/newer hotels on previous trips to Las Vegas, but have always bypassed the Flamingo because it looked old and rundown. I guess they’ve been working on upgrading their lobby area and rooms lately, as we were pleasantly surprised when we checked into our hotel room. It felt like we had checked into the Cosmopolitan or one of the newer hotels.

The last time I was in Las Vegas we stayed at the Imperial Palace. That is one of those places you don’t want to sleep under the bed sheets! The Flamingo wasn’t like that, everything looked nice and brand new. A pleasant surprise for us, and I would recommend staying at the Flamingo on your next trip!
