Caesars Palace Travel Guide

We sent Yodeler Eric Scire to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to create a Caesars Palace Travel Guide. Caesars has evolved over 50 years, becoming a part of American culture and earning a place in the minds of millions worldwide. When Caesars Palace opened in Las Vegas in 1966, the vision was to offer every man a taste of the good life. Every man could live like a Caesar. Hence, there is no apostrophe in “Caesars.” Caesars is the only place where spectacular things happen all the time—any given year, any given week, any given moment—which is why Caesars is renowned for being “Routinely Spectacular.” Eric created an incredible travel guide full of beautiful photos, secrets and destination tips just for you.

Give us the Vegas Elevator Pitch. How would you describe the city? Honestly, Vegas is amazing. You’ve got endless shopping, dining, and all-around entertainment. You can eat global cuisine prepared by award-winning chefs and or have a night out on the Strip—you’ve got the casinos, access to the best DJs… I mean, Vegas has it all.

What is the best thing about Vegas? The endless amount of fun and variety! You can visit and have whatever experience you’re looking for. Whether that’s the classic “wild night in Vegas” or a luxury experience filled with fine dining and relaxing spa days.

What do people get wrong about Vegas? A lot of people think Vegas is only about drinking and gambling. Sure, plenty of people spend their visit in the casino, but there’s a lot more to choose from. You can spend your days relaxing by the pool, eating at some of the best restaurants or shopping.

What are the people like in Vegas? What makes Vegas so unique is, it’s this center of diversity. People visit from all over the world for the gambling, the food, and the entertainment–and everyone is very warm and inviting. Locals and fellow visitors alike offered up tons of travel tips and good vibes.

What did you love most about Caesars Palace? Caesars Palace is a Vegas landmark, and it’s clear why. When we arrived, we were immediately taken aback by the attention to detail around the property.

The sculptures, the art, and architecture made it feel like you were walking into Ancient Greece. Albeit, with some modern upgrades.

I also thought the staff was top-notch. They readily answered any questions we had and made a noted effort to treat all guests with respect.

And finally, I’ve got to say; the pool was awesome.  Between the swim-up bar and the four pools, Caesars brought its pool game. I loved that the pool area was never crowded so that you could take a quick dip at any time.

Say your friend is visiting Vegas, but they only have 24 hours. What would you recommend they do?

If you only have 24 hours? My recommendation is after checking into your Caesars suite, heading straight to the Bacchanal Buffet, you’re able to choose from crab legs and pizza, avocado toast and tacos, Asian cuisine, and more. Plus, it’s the No. 1 Las Vegas buffet by USA Today so that says something.

Then, I’d say, the next stop is the pool. At Caesars, there’s a swim-up bar and several different pools. You can kick back and listen to music while soaking up the sun.

And, after some poolside R&R, I recommend venturing out to the Forum Shops—there’s plenty of food options from Sushi Roku and Carmines has a great happy hour. You can do some shopping before a night out on the town.

For dinner; I highly recommend Mesa Grill. Bobby Flay’s Southwestern menu has so many delicious options to choose from—Spice Rubbed Pork Tenderloin, Coffee-Rubbed Filet Mignon—all presented beautifully.

Let the night begin! Once you’re done with dinner, head over to OMNIA Nightclub. OMNIA is epic–it’s a massive club decked out in antique mirrors, a gigantic, LED chandelier moves to the beat of the music. Oh, and the Omnia is climate controlled, too, so you can dance the night away without overheating.





Best place to eat: 

Bacchanal Buffet inside Caesars Palace, was just amazing!!  This place is known for being one of the best buffets in the world, for good reason. Between the bottomless mimosas, a massive dessert station, and food from everywhere in the world, there’s definitely something for everyone. Pro tip: show up on an empty stomach, you’re going to want a little of everything.

Best place to drink:

Vista Cocktail Lounge. You can kick back with a hand-crafted cocktail while looking down at NYC, Dubai, and Shanghai outside and an LED display inside. While the lounge hosts DJs in a glamorous setting, the Vista is a chill, yet upscale nightlife option.

But, if you’re looking for more of a wild night out, OMNIA is going to be your best bet. Even if you’re not a “club person,” it’s an experience worth checking out at least once.

Best place to shop:

The Forum Shops, hands-down. It’s just a luxurious experience. With designer shops like Burberry, Balenciaga, Gucci, and so on, this is the place to spoil yourself after a big win.

Favorite travel tip:

Vegas is truly the city that never sleeps, there’s so much to do, no matter what your taste. So, there’s no need to plan this detailed itinerary. My recommendation is just to let go and see where the night takes you.
