24 hours at Caesars Palace

It’s hard to grasp just how big Las Vegas’s famed Caesars Palace is—until you try to explore all 85 acres of it. With almost 4,000 hotel rooms, 22 restaurants, a world-class spa, shopping, shows and, of course, a massive 129,000-sq.-ft casino, there’s a lot to see. Here’s one way to get the most out of a day at Caesars.

9 a.m. to 10 a.m. ­­­ ­­– Breakfast

Start your day with a just a touch of whimsy at Serendipity 3. Try the fried chicken and waffles.

10 a.m. to 12 p.m. – Spa time

The Qua Baths & Spa offers customized combinations of facial and body treatments. Try mixing an herbal body wrap with chakra balancing and a Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi massage.

12 p.m. to 1 p.m. – Lunch

Try the southwestern menu at chef Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill. Sample the blue corn pancake with barbecued duck, habanero chile and star anise sauce.

1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. – Retail therapy

The Forum Shops boast 160 stores and restaurants, including Gucci and the world’s largest H&M. Take a photo at the fountains and a ride on the spiral escalators.

3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. – Poolside lounging

The resort’s Garden of the Gods has eight swimming pools so you can sunbathe at the Apollo pool and play swim-up blackjack at the Fortuna pool.

6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. – Dinner

Go to the world’s largest Nobu, which features teppanyaki tables (where chefs prepare meals in front of diners) and a sushi bar. Order the rock shrimp tempura.

7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. – Nightlife

See a show at The Colosseum (Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Elton John and Rod Stewart all call the theatre home for part of the year) then head to the casino for the ultimate Vegas gaming experiece.

11 p.m. to 9 a.m. – Wind down

Luxuriate in a stylish Laurel Collection deluxe room, which is bathed in dark wood and earthy tones. Soak your tired feet in the whirlpool tub, then sink into the super comfy bed to end your day.
