National Plan For Vacation Day

National Plan For Vacation Day is here once again! Take action and plan out how you will enjoy this year’s vacation time.

In 2015 the U.S. Travel Association uncovered an unfortunate finding. Through working with travel industry partners to collect data on vacation time usage, they found out American’s were not using their vacation time. In fact, in 2018, more than 55% of American’s had let their vacation time go unused for the year. Taking time off to unplug helps decrease stress, uplifts moods, and allows you to strengthen connections with others. This is why we emphasize the need to plan out how you will be using your vacation time. You earned it, don’t miss out on this crucial benefit.

Although it is tempting to procrastinate on planning, those who plan tend to use more of their vacation time than those who don’t. To further entice you, we are currently offering 30% off at Tahiti Village when you book for 3 nights by February 28, 2021. Our rooms come equipped with the comforts of home, including a full-sized kitchen, dishwasher, and more. Our resort also has a heated lazy river, sand entry pool, and other features we are sure will help you relax.

How to Celebrate the Holidays in the Midst of the Pandemic

How to Celebrate the Holidays in the Midst of the Pandemic

How to Celebrate the Holidays in the Midst of the Pandemic

Written by: Emma Grace Brown ~ emmagracebrown.com

With COVID-19 remaining a significant concern in many places, holiday plans are changing for many. From cooking family recipes over Zoom calls or shuttling dishes and gifts between households, your holidays will likely look quite different this year. Use this guide to help your family cope this holiday season, whether it’s signing on for family video chats over turkey dinners or opening presents on Zoom.

Safe travel tips and considerations

While many are opting to stay home and avoid the risk of contracting COVID-19, others are choosing to travel to see family or for holidays. The CDC recommends that people stay home, but if you choose to travel, be sure to heed the following advice.

First of all, it’s wise to ask yourself whether your travel is necessary. If you’re thinking of traveling to see family members who may be considered at-risk, it’s probably better to avoid making the trip. Even if your plans include traveling to a family-friendly resort and having a mini-holiday, it’s still vital to consider the risks before booking your travel.

If you do choose to travel, first check travel restrictions. Some states require a quarantine period, especially if you’re coming from a high-risk area. Get your flu shot before you travel, and wear a mask in all public settings, when using public transportation, and around people you don’t live with. Keep a six-foot distance from others, and wash and sanitize your hands often.

Virtual celebration tips

For those who choose to stay home and reduce the risk of transmission, you can still celebrate the holidays with your immediate household and have virtual celebrations with loved ones who live far away. You can get together virtually through Zoom, but ensure you have the right equipment to make the most out of your virtual get-togethers.

One item that will improve your video calls is a new laptop or tablet. You can get great deals on both tablets and laptops online from a number of different manufacturers, so do your research before buying. Another great product is a webcam, which can make your video chat feed much clearer for the rest of the family.

If you have a big family, it might make more sense to use a projector so all your family members can see friends and family easily while chatting. Along with allowing you to view your family and friends on the big screen, a projector will be great for family movie nights. Be sure to read reviews, study project features, and learn about the various resolution options before buying.

Holiday survival tips

In the absence of gatherings, people are getting really creative this holiday season. Thanksgiving is usually a time for families and friends to cook together, and some are planning to do so online. From learning how to make your mom’s favorite stuffing to getting the turkey just right, you can video chat with your friends and family throughout your meal prep. It’s the next best thing to being in person, and it will likely be more fun than you expect.

While it may be difficult to imagine celebrating Christmas without your extended family, you can still exchange gifts by shipping presents to one another and agreeing to open them together via video chat when the time comes. If you’re buying gifts for kids in your life, some of the hottest holiday toys will be available online at heavy discounts, so do your research before you buy.

In a year filled with difficulty and uncertainty, managing the risk of COVID-19 through the holidays may feel challenging. If you’re traveling, be sure to wear your mask in public settings and quarantine yourself as necessary. If you’re staying home, make use of video chats to spend time with your family online. It might not be the same as you’re used to, but it will help keep your family safe during the dangerous pandemic season.

When It Comes to Halloween, Vegas Knows What It’s Doing

Las Vegas has its fair share of interesting characters; even more so during October’s Halloween season. Fall is a wonderful time to visit Sin City because the temperatures have become milder and tourist season has started to subside. However, visitors from all over still head to Las Vegas during this time of the year to take part in the Halloween events in Las Vegas that pop up around the city. For a night of fun (or fright), Sin City has you covered across the spectrum with things to do.

Freakling Bros. Trilogy of Terror

Scary terrors for the brave abound at all three Freakling Bros haunted houses. Choose from Coven of 13, Castle Vampyre, Gates of Hell, or get admission to all three, if you dare. Each interactive experience follows its own theme and is sure to elicit plenty of screams. If you think the haunted house experience is a breeze, test yourself at The Victim Experience, suited for only the most extreme of thrill seekers. Reading the rules is required before signing up for this one-of-a-kind haunt because it’s definitely not a Halloween attraction for the faint of heart.

Haunted Harvest at Springs Preserve

For a more family-friendly haunt, Haunted Harvest provides an evening of fun for all ages with carnival games, a petting zoo, a “haunted” train, and hay maze among its various activities. There are also plenty of treats to keep the kids satisfied and costumes are encouraged by everyone in attendance. Out of all the Halloween events in Las Vegas, this specific one runs for three weekends starting on Friday, October 13th and running through Sunday, October 29th from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM.

Fright Dome at Circus Circus

Prepare for a little bit of everything at Fright Dome at Circus Circus, now celebrating its 15th year anniversary. This Halloween-themed event is more than just a haunted house but rather a full experience complete with scare zones, live shows, and other scary areas inviting you to enter at your own risk. Tickets are on sale now through October 31st. Fright Dome covers 250,000 square-feet of space with six haunted houses, four scare zones, 4D theaters, and rides. Find out what the fright is all about here.

McKee Ranch Pumpkin Patch

Switching gears, another option suitable for all ages is a visit to the McKee Ranch. There is a petting zoo with goats, donkeys, horses, bunnies, and chickens. There are also hayrides and other pumpkin and fall themed events for the kids to enjoy. There is a $20 requested donation per family for a day full of fun. Pack a picnic lunch or dine out of the onsite food truck. And of course, leave time to pick out the perfect pumpkin.

Fear the Walking Dead Survival

Fans of the Fear the Walking Dead show or zombie fanatics, in general, can seek out this newest thrill adventure located at the Fremont Street Experience. There is an escape room, maze, and other multisensory features to this zombie outbreak attraction. The experience opened over the summer and isn’t limited to only Halloween, but is still a great way to celebrate the holiday. Following your trip through zombieland, make your way down Fremont Street and check out the ongoing activity always happening in downtown Las Vegas.

Fun Costume Ideas and Snacks for Halloween

If your idea of a good Halloween time is less about where you go and more about what you wear, there is an endless number of costumes to choose from. Elvis is a popular costume regardless of the time of year but other popular choices include superheroes, mummies, ghosts, and family-themed costumes like The Addams Family or the Flintstones. Get creative and host your own party right in the comfort of your own Tahiti Village suite, which come equipped with a kitchen and dining area. Easy food ideas include:

  1. Mummy Hot Dogs – Simply wrap readymade dough “mummy-style” around a hot dog and bake.
  2. Bones ‘n’ Blood – Use store bought breadstick dough, cut the end of each strip, and roll down to create the bone shape.After baking, use marinara for dipping for a fun and spooky snack.
  3. Dirt ‘n’ Worms – This easy dessert has always been a party favorite and is well-suited for Halloween. Create layers in a glass, alternating between chocolate pudding and crushed Oreos as the “dirt.” Top with gummy worms and plastic spiders and you have a creepy, sweet treat.

You can also serve a buffet-style of finger foods and decorate the table with festive decor in orange and black for a fairly inexpensive cost. The ways you can celebrate Halloween in Las Vegas is only limited by your time and imagination. There is plenty to do but also see when it comes to fall in the city. Enjoy exploring Las Vegas during this extra festive time of the year!
