Among the more popular Las Vegas bachelorette party itinerary ideas, drag shows are offered on the Strip, on Fremont Street, and away from the action at various LQBTQ-friendly bars and clubs.
For those seeking drag shows in Las Vegas, I thought it would be helpful to lay out your options by geography, as they can be somewhat difficult to find.
For each show, I’ll link out to a couple of ticket sources (when possible) so that you can easily compare and contrast pricing to find the best deal.

I’m a former software salesman turned Vegas aficionado. While the craps table is my preferred habitat, I pull myself away to explore new attractions, shows, restaurants, and outdoor activities around Las Vegas with the intent of sharing my experiences.
Ultimately, I just want to help folks plan a better trip and save a few bucks in the process.
