With today’s mobile app market more varied than ever, there’s often little reason to leave the house. Services like Amazon Prime have brought virtually everything straight to our doorsteps—but that doesn’t mean we’ve opted out of a trip to the store entirely.
For Vegas residents, there’s a bit more to consider than in other locations. With a clear lifestyle line dividing locals and visitors, it’s easy to feel that the City of Lights is actually two places, coexisting as one.
When is it worth venturing into the desert heat and possibly facing hordes of tourists? The answer may change depending on time of day and season, but some delivery services just aren’t worth the extra charges. Other times, a well-designed app or online service can make us wonder what we ever did without them.
Let’s take a closer look at what Vegas has to offer.
Like most other US metropolises, Las Vegas isn’t short on delivery services for a range of products, from groceries to medicine. Most apps deliver precisely what’s ordered, quickly and efficiently. However, opting to purchase groceries online may not be the smartest move in Vegas.
First, food tends to undergo a highly personal review before we decide it’s appealing. Second, we can arrange our haul however we want in our car, making sure nothing gets smashed on the ride home. Third, there’s always that unexpected treat.
Is it worth it to bet online in a city that’s home to some of the continent’s most prestigious retail sportsbooks? It depends on the purpose. For a night out with local friends or visiting groups, nothing competes with a booth at Caesar’s Sportsbook.
But for those looking for competitive deals and a simplified betting experience, it may be more convenient to bet online IN via web browser or mobile device. With Vegas adding new major league teams every other year, it’s becoming more common for locals to place wagers on their team, like the NFL’s Vegas Raiders or the WNBA’s Aces.
It can be hard to stay fit in the City of Lights, which is problematic considering Vegas is full of photo opportunities. Those with a willpower of steel may not be hard-pressed to get themselves on the treadmill or watching an eight-minute yoga video, but most aren’t so blessed with conviction.
Joining a gym doesn’t have to be expensive and boring. More and more locations are opening up with specific themes in mind—exercise for women (and by women) included. Aren’t sure what your fitness goals are aside from looking good and feeling better? Trainers, or even spotting buddies, can help you design your goals.
Whether a TLC show or a mobile app, interior design can be a highly entertaining activity. Many of us love to imagine what we’d do with our homes—only to find out that actually redecorating can be the stuff of nightmares.
Picking out textures, making accurate measurements, creating color palettes, finding affordable furniture, and then pulling it all together is a job for professionals. But for those who don’t feel comfortable handing over their home to a stranger, try out a planner first. It’s much easier for designers to work on a project with a well-rounded blueprint in hand.
