travelling to las vegas SOLO

by pauly-c

hi all,
i am coming from sydney australia and will be there in the first week of march on the wednesday to the sunday by myself and then meeting up with family in LA. I like playing a lot of black jack and a tiny bit of poker.
I am in the process of booking accomodation and I am looking at the mgm grand, the mirage, luxor, monte carlo or caesars. - totally not sure which is the best and I havent booked yet so I would love to hear what you all think.

Ideally I want to stay at a hotel that is on the strip and learn about places that you all think are easy to find/meet new friends.
any help and information would be awesome!

In my opinion CAESAR'S is the best. In the middle of everything.

Of the bunch there Luxor MGM and to a lesser extent Monte Carlo pretty much at teh end of the strip, Caesars and Mirage most central.

Hard Rock Hotel is apparently quite a younger and outgoing crowd but it's a mile or so off strip on Paradise.

I have the experience that it's always easier to fall into casual conversation perhaps at a balckjack table where the stakes are lower - meaning Fremont Street mostly. I've never been to Las Vegas on my own but I imagine that the downtown bit may be a better bet if I ever did.

I'd choose MGM Grand simply because it was the only casino I actually WON money at in Vegas!!!

Its towards the southern end of the Strip but certainly not out of the action by any means. MGM reminded me of the Vegas casinos you see in the movies and I thought it had a nice vibe to it.

Personally I would pick the Mirage or Ceasars since they are in the middle of the strip which is where you want to be. As for MGM, Luxor, Monte Carlo they are ok but further down towards the airport. Out of those 3 I would choose the Monte Carlo only because is not as huge as the other two.

Caesars is in the middle of the strip and is pretty impressive, so that's a good choice. I've stayed at MGM Grand which was AWESOME by the pool in summer (and you'll be guaranteed to meet people there), but not sure what the weather is like in March???

You'll easily meet people to hang out with in Vegas, everyone is just on a high being there and super friendly ;o)

A good place to go is the Duelling Pianos bar in New York New York casino. I went there with some mates but we ended up meeting about 10 other people to hang out with. It's a sensational night out there. The piano guys are really entertaining.

I recommend the MGM Grand for what you are after, reasonable table limits, good for your age group, one of the best for entertainment

Travel Tips for Las Vegas

The Strip

by sue_stone

The Strip, aka Las Vegas Boulevard, is what modern-day Vegas is all about. Lined with glitzy, themed hotels, casinos and mega-resorts, this is a bustling place by day and night. Try to experience the Strip at various times of day - the almost serene scenes early morning as the sun rises over the Eiffel Tower; the traffic jams and tourists sweating under the baking dessert sun in the middle of the day.

Late afternoon brings respite from that sun, so stop by the Bellagio and watch the fountains dance, before freshening up and hitting the street at night to see the Strip all lit up and sparkling, and do some casino hopping or catch a show. It's all good.

Watching FREE shows..and cheap buffets...I LOVE EATING!!! lost $20.00 on a crap table and can't go to sleep after that...won't try to gamble money or anything else anymore after that experience...DANG!!!!

Walk the strip! Just mingling...

by nevadanick

Walk the strip! Just mingling with the tourists is an experience in itself; you also get to see the incredible sights like the fountain dance of the Bellagio, the volcano of the Mirage and the pirates of the Treasure Island. Being on the strip at the stroke of midnight December 31st, 2000

Baby Sitting & Child Care


Why should Mum and Dad be penalised for wanting to enjoy Vegas with the kids? Ok I agee kids shouldnt be allowed into the casinos, but there are so many other attractions for children in Vegas that it seems only fair to take them with you....BUT what happens when you really want a night to yourselves. Nice dinner, take in a show, just some "away from the kids" time. Well there are many Child Care agencies in Vegas, legally checked, fully licensed and insured, just make sure you see all the paperwork before booking them. Several of the large hotels have a baby sitting service so Ive listed a few should you feel the need.......

Flamingo Wildlife Habitat is FREE

by deecat

I'm especially fond of the Flamingo Hotel and Casino for many reasons. First of all, it is quite historic being that it is Bugsy Siegel's desert dream. The Flamingo has been an anchor to the Strip since 1946. It is located on the famed "four corners of Las Vegas Boulevard Flamingo Road. I also think that it is great that the resort still has a flock of live Chilean Flamingos. The main photo shows these birds, who are located in the Wildlife Habitat along with swans, turtles, Mandarin ducks, and Koi fish. At one time, they had African Penquins, but they are no longer here

This Habitat is located adjacent to the tropically themed pool area and the two areas cover about 15 acres. The brochure they gave out says that this area has over "100 exotic birds, turtles, and fish'. They also have a small flock of Parrots. We did not see this, but the people at the Hotel say that the Parrots frequently hang out in front of the Flamingo and beckon tourists to enter the casino. Now, I take that "with a grain of salt!" Mickey and I wandered around the Wildlife Habitat with its lush gardens, ponds, waterfalls, a number of tennis courts, 3 swimming pools, a Jacuzzi,a small wedding chapel, and a memorial to Bugsy Siegel [See #s4-5 photos]

Make sure you see this lovely area to learn more about the history of Las Vegas and to enjoy wildlife in the midst of all the wild people [LOL]
