Las Vegas is known for taking partying to ever new heights- we’ve all heard about the city’s epic pool parties, nightclubs, bars, and more. And while these are indeed something to behold, it’s important to stay hydrated when enjoying the festivities in this hot and dry city. To help you in this endeavor, check out the following tips:
Beating the Heat Without Missing A Beat
The Vegas open container laws make it legal for you to carry your drink around as you partake in the activities on the Strip. And, with the free drinks offered at casinos, the extensive drink menus at the local restaurants, and the tempting bottle services at the nightclubs, there are plenty of selections to choose from.
This may seem excessive but, in truth, drinking in Vegas is OK as long as you are smart and safe about it. For instance:
Eat small meals
Eating large meals can affect your body’s efficiency, especially when it comes to regulating body temperature and water absorption. Enjoying smaller portions, on the other hand, will help you maintain better hydration. And if you want to snack between meals, choose foods with plenty of water like yogurt and fresh fruit and vegetables.
Keep a water bottle close by
When you are in the middle of partying, it can be easy to forget to drink water. But, if you keep a water bottle on hand at all times, it can make this a little easier.
Add flavor to your water
If you are not a fan of plain water or if you want to switch things up, trying jazzing up your beverage with mint leaves, cucumber, citrus fruit slices, etc. These options will add a unique flavor to your drink, sans extra sodium or sugar. Sparkling water in another good option – just remember that these type of drinks contain carbonic acid and sodium, both which should be consumed in moderation.
Beware of the fruity drink reception
There are lots of places on the Strip where you can get delicious frothy, fruity drinks like frozen daiquiris and margaritas. And, because these drinks taste more like juice than alcohol, it’s easy to forget that too many of them can get you wasted. If these are your drink of choice, make sure you are diligent about how many you drink.
