The parking areas in most places in the downtown las vegas areas are not free unless you have it validated at the establishment that you are gambling or eating or shopping, they also have parking areas that charge between $ 5 to $ 10 per vehicle for up to 4 hours. In the Strip area, most Casino Complexes like the Bellagio or Wynn or Palazzo have free self parking areas for unlimited parking but the only caveat is that thy have no security so you park at your own risk. the best bet will be via Valet Parking at any establishment since they are free and you only have to tip the valet attendant to b able to do the valet parking.
Fondest memory: lots of free self parking areas and valet parking
I don't know specifically the free wifi situation in Las Vegas, but in the US there's free wifi in McDonald's and Starbucks Cafe.
I doubt there is free wifi in the casino resorts due to security reasons.
Take a punt on the American Casino Guide book, which looks like it can half the cost of a buffet or meal at many dozen locations in Las Vegas - check the deals here, and there is a link to order it for $12.75.
If anyone on Blighty is interested, Spring 2010 it's £9.68 delivered from Amazon.
Also you can print innumerable discount coupons at home before you go at
or the less well organized(!)
and there is even an option of a day pass for all buffets at multiple locations
If you are up and down the strip now have the monorail www.lvmonorail.com, this takes you right from MGMs far as Sahara in the North, which is not too far from Fremont Street, and at worst a very inexpensive cab fare. A single trip is $5 but 3 day unlimited pass good value at $30.
Fondest memory: The Madness............
We don't do much gambling, we love going to the shows as it has it's most spectacular shows one can see. Yes, it can be a bit draining to your budget but again it's not like an everyday entertainment so we find it all worth going to Las Vegas. The weather, all year round is normally on the extreme weather. Summer is extremely hot, which makes you feel your inside the biggest oven in the world, and when winter comes it normally does not snow (except for last year which was 2008, Las Vegas came up with snow! The world was astound to learn that Las Vegas snow. Otherwise, during winter Las Vegas is windy and reasonable for everyone to walk around with a pretty good thick jacket.
The hotels we had stayed in were always quite fancy and spectacular views as we were fortunate to be assigned to one of the highest floors of the hotel. Services in Las Vegas we always experience it to be very much to everyone's satisfactory...but as they say, what goes on in Las Vegas, stays in LAS VEGAS!
Fondest memory: The word LAS VEGAS in Spanish it can mean “The or Those Meadows”. One is able to consider Las Vegas the international renowned resort for gambling, fine dining, entertainment and of-course shopping. Many would agree that these little city happens to be the world’s most entertaining place...well of-course there are few more however, when Las Vegas entertains it is taken seriously.
Since the year 2007 we understand that just in the metropolitan area was 1,836,333 to be exact...so by this date this would have been added then.
The “strip” as everyone calls it, is about 3.8 miles (according to our GPS). Majority of the well known hotels and casino as well as the resorts as we call it you will find them in the “strip” of Las Vegas.
Please let’s not ignore one of the most important beauty...it is the most dramatic architecture of Las Vegas, one architecture would be more beautiful than the one built a year or two years ago, there is always a new hotel or resort that has just been completed with more exotic architect.
A VTer asked in the Forum if a Tuesday night in June would be nice in Vegas --- less people? but less fun?
It may be a little warm on that Tuesday night in June but it will still be loaded with fun in the city that never sleeps. Being a weekday, there are better hotel deals, still lots of people but much less than during the weekend!
However, major concerts are usually on Saturdays as you can see on the list of Vegas concerts at http://www.wedoitallvegas.com/Las-Vegas-Concerts.asp
And yes, there's even a website that is solely dedicated on what to do in Vegas on Tuesday nights! Visit http://www.bachelorvegas.com/options/tuesdays.html
But basically, every day of the week in Vegas has something to offer --- there is reason why it has become one of the top tourist destinations!
Fondest memory: Seeing Vegas for the first time at night time when I was I teenager...amazing lights in the middle of the desert
If you are wanting to see a specific act/show, then book in advance especially for headliners!
BUT if you just want to see a great show at a discounted price, and you are not bothered about seeing a particular show, or where you might be seated, this tip is for YOU.
There is a small little known company called Tix4Tonight, they sell tickets daily for shows on that day, and they sell them at half price! Basically they buy up the extra tickets for shows and then sell them at half price. Once you have your ticket you need to sprint to the booking office at the location of your show and be allocated your seats.
They are also well located, directly opposite the NYNY hotel is that giant coca-cola bottle (next to the MGM), they are inside that. They open at 10am, but start posting availability at 9:30.
There are other locations now, so check out thier website www.tix4tonight.com.
You can save money and go see some great shows this way.
The website has a $2 coupon currently, just print it off and take it to the stand.
Don’t know if anyone ever looks at the material that most hotels provide, especially those glamour magazine. Well, those magazines are usually a great source of information of some really neat night spots, sightseeing spots, or really cool restaurants. I like to sit while having my morning cup of coffee and browse thru the literature. Once something caught my eye, we went down to the business center to get more info or find the location. We ended up finding about some really neat things to see and do in Vegas. So, take the time and browse the literature in the hotel rooms.

I was in Vegas 10/23 - 10/27. The lowest daytime temperature was 80, most days it was 85-88. Nights were usually 58-63 by midnight into the wee hours.
Check your pool to see if it's still open though. Harrah's had already closed their pool when I was there.

Favorite thing: This is especially true of the hotels. What may seem like a short walk from one hotel to the next is actually much longer. Also, the Vegas Strip may be only a couple of blocks long, but remember most of the hotels are huge and each block is rather long. Don't be surprised if it takes you more than a few minutes to walk over to the next hotel, especially if its hot outside and the street is filled with tourists doing the Vegas shuffle (see transportation)
