Doing Las Vegas Sober. Is It Possible?

Las Vegas is the land they call America’s playground. It’s a place where overindulgence isn’t really in the vocabulary of those visiting and where (almost) anything goes. But what about visiting if you’ve gone sober? Is it really possible?

The vast amount of bars, clubs, and people intoxicated is going to cause significant temptation you may not be able to tackle yet.

However, if you have got your recovery in a manageable, comfortable, and confident space, then Las Vegas can certainly be done sober, and here’s why…

Unparalleled Entertainment Beyond Alcohol

Las Vegas doesn’t need alcohol or substances to fuel a party. In fact, there are tons of entertainment options outside of the bars and clubs. There’s the mesmerizing Cirque du Soleil and the many, many residencies that take place across the year, including huge stars like Adele, Mariah Carey, and even The Killers are doing a hometown run of shows in 2024.

There’s also plenty of comedy, theatre shows, and sport these days, with the Las Vegas Raiders and Vegas Golden Knights now residing in the city.

Sensory Spectacles Without Inhibition

Las Vegas is already a sensory overload. You don’t need booze for that. The dazzling lights, unique architecture, and stunning backdrop of the desert can really captivate visitors at every turn. You can spend your entire time in Vegas just walking the streets and inside the hotels marveling at them. By doing this sober you can fully appreciate all Las Vegas has to offer.

The Peace Of The Greenery

Finally, it is possible to relax in Las Vegas. Many casinos have gardens, with the Bellagio Conservatory up there with the finest. There’s also a Botanical Garden, as well as several golf courses for those who want to get out in the sunshine and swing a few clubs.

They can provide a real escape from the hustle and bustle of the Strip, so if you are getting a little overwhelmed, they’re the perfect spots to take a break.
