Don’t think I forgot about Round 4! 46 days and counting! The Big Dance seems like it’s just around the corner, I can hardly contain my stress level, I MEAN excitement level! So much to do and plan for in such a short amount of time! Last week I shared a few of my favorite things to do while in Las Vegas for the NFR, and today I want to share a few of my favorite spots to watch the performances, if you aren’t lucky enough to get tickets every night, as well as some of the best after parties to attend!
MGM Grand – The MGM pretty much has your best all-around rodeo viewing experience! Head down to their “Gold Buckle Zone” for free viewing parties, as well as great after-party entertainment! The concert line-up they have after each rodeo viewing is pretty impressive, especially for free entry! The venue is fairly large, so you won’t be jam packed or need to worry about limited viewing access.
South Point Hotel - Head to the South Point Convention Center to watch the rodeo, and attend the round-winner buckle presentations after! It's fun to see the winning contestants on stage after round-winning rides and times. They typically host a Cody Johnson concert immediately after the presentations that has free entry.
Gilley’s in Treasure Island – Similar to MGM, Gilley’s has free entry for both performance viewing as well as their nightly entertainment, but you need to arrive before 8pm. They reserve the dance floor area for seated viewing and dining during the rodeo, then open up the area for great concerts & line-dancing promptly after the perf is over. They book a few of the same country artists for back-to-back concerts, so I would recommend staggering your trips here if you plan on staying for the concerts. And yes, you can ride the bull once the rodeo is over!
