Top 10 Ways to Thrive in Vegas

10.  Drink lots of water – You’re in the desert. It’s super dry. Chances are you may partake in a cocktail or two…many. Do yourself a favor – hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

9.   Bring a Jacket – Yes, Vegas is in the desert. Yes, it can get hot out on the strip. But, inside, the casinos love to crank the A/C

8.   Catch a ride with Uber or Lyft – You’ll save a few bucks on the cost of a taxi.

7.    Set a budget – Whether you love gambling, shopping or fine dining, Vegas has it all. Set a daily budget and stick to it.

6.    Download the free CompuSport app – Make the most of your time in Vegas. You can see your tournament schedule anywhere, anytime on your phone. View CompuSport here!

5.     Pack some Advil – We’re not gonna bother to explain why, just do it.

4.     Attend the Pool Party – Need we say more than pool party?! Come have fun with us!

3.     Bring a good pair of walking shoes – The casinos are ginormous! It may look like the place you want to go is just across the street, but it’s probably a 30 minute walk!

2.     Take the Monorail! – It stops right at the front of the tournament venue (Westgate). Not only is it a scenic ride along the strip, but APA members get a discount at https://tix.lvmonorail.com/APA2019.
