Christmas in Vegas

Don’t get me wrong, one of my favorite things about the holidays is the part where I get to spend it with my friends and family. The holiday season seems like it is the only time of year where it is an unspoken rule that family must be together, or at least everybody is obligated to send a text, card, or phone call giving their love and best wishes.

But not everyone has a traditional family, such as mine, and we need to “make do” with what we have. My family doesn’t have any traditions for Christmas, some years we spend it at parties, some years it’s just my parents and siblings relaxing at home, and the rest we are traveling. And one of my favorite places to visit is Las Vegas, sure I may be to young to hit the black jack tables, but I just can’t resist an amazing meal. So here is a quick look at some of Vegas’s hottest Christmas restaurants.

Here’s a little fact for everyone, Vegas never closes. Even on Christmas day, all of the stores, casinos, strip clubs, and restaurants are open the same as they would any other day. Most restaurants even have Christmas Special discounts, making it all the more tempting to book your ticket! Oh, and you can wear that cocktail dress you’ve been wanting to without getting frost bite…
