The last six months have been a bit over-whelming to say the least. I was a caregiver for my dad recently diagnosed with cancer, dealt with my grandma dying from a stroke, and still managing our household of 5. Moms are expected to carry the weight of it all. I love being the responsible one. However sometimes we get to that breaking point that requires us to do some self-care for our sanity. See how I stay active and refresh in Las Vegas. Vegas.com is a good website to find out about Las Vegas and deals while you are there.
I know what you are thinking. Really Las Vegas to unwind!?! But yes really!!! Las Vegas isn’t all about partying and gambling. There is so much to do!
Take advantage of staying active with a change of scenery
We always stay at a hotel on the strip by Planet Hollywood. I go to Las Vegas when my husband is there on business. While he is working, I love that I don’t have to have a car to do any of the things I want to do.
During the daytime, I like to wake up early to go for a stroll or run along the strip with less people on the sidewalks. It is a different place in the morning. You might run into the “still up from last night” group but for the most part they keep to themselves. I find ways to stay active by planning out daily walks or runs, playing in one of the many pools and hiking.
This summer during my July/Aug Las Vegas Trip I was pleased with my amount of activity in a place known as sin city. When you look at the graph, notice that I was traveling on July 29th. Look out how my activity level peaked in Vegas!
If you feel like traveling a little further, check out Red Rock!
When you are without a car though, I know traveling approximately 30 minutes outside of Las Vegas sounds far. Check out one of the many tours available including hiking groups and bus tours. Vegas.com is a good website to find out about Las Vegas and deals while you are there. Red Rock is strenuous in some places so for those not comfortable hiking rough terrain for many miles.
If you are there during the summer, there are a lot of day clubs with spectacular pool views like Drai’s Beach Day Club
