The Downtown Vegas Alliance (DVA), a member-driven nonprofit business organization, and DTP Companies, formerly known as Downtown Project, a $350 million investment dedicated to the revitalization of Downtown Las Vegas, are partnering on an initiative designed to support small businesses in our community while giving locals multiple options to enjoy Downtown Las Vegas in fun and safe ways.
The “PLAYcation,” campaign launches today and features special offers and discounts from 20+ businesses conveniently aggregated on the Explore DTLV app to draw locals to the heart of the city for day-trip vacations that may be completed in a few hours.
Participating businesses include 12 restaurants and bars, four retail outlets, three museums, three casino resorts and more. For easy transportation while “playcationing,” rideshare service, Lyft, is offering $25 in ride credits for the first 250 playcationers, and the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) is offering 50 percent off 24-hour passes to the first 100 playcationers for its RTC Bike Share program, which has multiple stations in the downtown area.
To receive the discounts, playcationers simply show the offer on the Explore DTLV app at the participating business and mention the code #DTLVPLAY.
The PLAYcation campaign is scheduled to run from Sept. 25 through Dec. 15. For the duration of the promotion, participants also have the opportunity to enter to win weekly prizes via a social media contest, culminating with a mid-week stay at the Real World Suite at the Gold Spike as the grand prize awarded in December.
