They say you've never partied hard until you've gone to Las Vegas. You're told to go to the famous casinos, the luxury shops, the clubs, the broadway shows and other hot spots in Vegas to have a magical experience like no other.
Well, unfortunately some of us can't afford to pay for this kind of trip. Here's a list of ways you can live that "Vegas lifestyle" in Toronto and enjoy the amazing things our city has to offer, (not any worse than Vegas) whether it's for a bachelorette/bachelor party, simple night out or a weekend getaway:
1. Gamble at a casino.
2. Watch a broadway show.
Many people check out broadway shows when they go to Vegas and Toronto has plenty of them as well. Some of the theatrical performances include Kinky Boots and Matilda. Check out Toronto Theatre for upcoming shows and details.
3. Check out Cirque du Soleil.
Cirque du Soleil did originate in Canada after all. The world recognized entertainment company comes to Toronto with a variety of performances more than you would think. Check out their tour details here.

4. Get wild at a pool bar
Why go to Wet Republic in Vegas when you can go to Cabana Pool Bar? Vegas is known for its extravagant and wild pool parties, but let us tell you Cabana does a pretty good job every summer. With a beautiful skyline of Toronto, yachts docked at the pier, a pool and gorgeous white Cabanas you're guaranteed to have a good time.
5. Party like a Rock Star
Toronto has its very own Hard Rock Cafe at Dundas Square. Go out to this international rock 'n' roll-themed chain that has a strong Vegas vibe to it. Grab a bite of some American classics and enjoy the live entertainment.
6. Enjoy a strip show
There are plenty of strip clubs in Toronto that do the same deal and have gorgeous ladies and gents like in Vegas. A dance will probably cost you less in Toronto as well. Check out the list here.
7. Pop bottles like a celebrity
Hit up the clubs on King Street and get a private VIP booth with bottle service. Lost & Found will put on a special show for you as if you're in Vegas with Lamborghini's and gold buckets carrying out bottles of champagne. If you're looking to find the best nightclubs in Toronto, check out this list.
8. Shop at luxury boutiques
There's no need to shop at Caesar's Palace because Toronto has its very own shopping strip, Bloor Street. Gucci,Chanel, Hermes, Prada, Tiffany and Holt Renfrew are only some of the luxury stores located on Bloor if you've got the money to spend.

9. Go to a shooting range
Shooting bullets at indoor ranges in Vegas is totally a thing, The Range 702 is the most famous gun range there. FYI you don't need to go to Vegas to shoot guns because there's Target Sports in Toronto.
