The Perfect Solo Itinerary for 24 Hours in Las Vegas

I found myself with a few days off from work and cash to spend. Where to go for a quick, fun vacation? Las Vegas, baby! One problem, though. No one else was available to travel with me on this last minute trip.

I traveled solo for years but admit to being a bit intimidated at the thought of visiting "Sin City" by myself. My impressions of typical Las Vegas visitors are couples on a romantic getaway, large groups of guys and gals descending on the city for pre-wedding debauchery, and silver-haired seniors ambling from casino to casino. None of these profiles screamed awesome vacation for a solo female traveler. However, I like a challenge and was determined to get out of town.

I have returned from solo trips well-rested, happy, and with a renewed sense of purpose. Need more incentives? Here are 11 reasons to travel solo this year.
