Every American girl 100% needs to go to Las Vegas at least once in her lifetime. The only way to experience Vegas is to see it all first-hand. When picturing the party scene in Sin City, a few things probably come to mind: high rollers gambling, fabulous pool parties and clubs, endless bottle service … you get the picture. But, what do you do if you're going to Vegas and you're not legally allowed to do any of that?! Thankfully, Las Vegas offers entertainment befitting for a Birthday Girl regardless of her age, so don't stress, young Birthday Girl. Here are some things to check out if you're under 21:
Madame Tussauds at the Venetian - Go ahead and shamelessly let your inner fan-girl out! It might seem cliche to fawn over wax replicas of celebrities, but you'd be surprised at how much fun you'll have pretending to kiss Brad Pitt on the cheek or whispering secrets to Paris Hilton.
Cirque Du Soleil – Regardless of whether you enjoy the circus, you will love this show. Vegas' most recent rendition, Michael Jackson ONE, is the perfect opportunity to get glammed up, then completely immerse yourself and be mesmerized by this world class performance.
Slotzilla Zipline - Imagine yourself as a coin flying 120ft above the luminous streets of Las Vegas as you're being launched towards an 11-story slot machine. Slotzilla is projected to open in June 2013, seating 4 people at a time, and it'll only cost $20-$30 per ride! Take a deep breath, strap in, and refuse to close your eyes so you can take in the view as you soar above one of the most radiant cities in the world.
The Adventure Dome at Circus Circus - Famous for its roller coasters, Vegas' own indoor amusement park is the perfect place to celebrate your birthday with your family.
Electric Daisy Carnival (age 18+) - For all the fist pumping EDM loving Birthday Girl's, EDC is the ultimate 3-day music festival. Hundreds of the hottest DJs travel from around the world to Las Vegas to perform on 7 huge stages in front of 300,000 people, with an amusement park in the center of it all. Tickets sell out FAST, so book them online ASAP, and don't forget your best rave gear (AKA tutus, fanny packs, etc)!
There's so much to do if you're underage in Las Vegas! Never forget to appreciate your youth and embrace every single birthday. There’s no rush to grow up. You have the rest of your life to indulge yourself in drinking and gambling.
Always remember that life may be short, but the memories you make in Vegas are forever.
