After spending the weekend with friends and family, I’m not sure I’ll be ready to leave until next week, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be planning for the long haul.

As the summer sun begins to peek over the horizon and the humidity returns to the city, I’ve decided to spend my first few weeks in Vegas without a trip.

I know, I know: it’s the worst thing in the world.

But what if you’ve got a great weekend ahead of you, and your friends and relatives want to come visit you?

Well, that’s where this post comes in.

I’ve been traveling all summer long, and I know what to look for in order to ensure that my trip isn’t ruined.

Here’s what I’m going to do, and what I want to look out for in my next Vegas trip.
