    Packing List

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: The amount of bags isn't really that big of deal, but make sure your able to identify every piece you bring with you.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Ok here we go...it's hot here! During the summer wear shorts and t-shirts. You'll be doing alot of walking here to see everything, so a good pair of shoes are extremely recomended. But do watch out for the famous Vegas rain. It will be Sunshine and no clouds, then BOOM, down fall. But it clears right back up.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Because it is always sunny here, bring lots of sunscreen. Even if you want a tan, bring lots of it. Every major hotel here has just about any other kind of supplies or toletries you could think of.

    Photo Equipment: Every hotle gift shop you can find batteries. And there are a few gift shops on the strip that sell batteries for you video or still camera.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Camping around las vegas is rather limited. The only place you can are at Lake Mead(kind sucks...ok really sucks), there is also Red Rock(cool place, hot no water really, but awesome views of some of the most beautiful rock you've seen), and last there is Mt. Charleston(they call it a mountain, kinda is but not really...it's nice if you've never seen a real mountain).

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you only want to shop and gamble in Vegas, you don't need any extra gear. However, you may be tempted to visit Zion National Park or the Grand Canyon (both are just a few hours' drive away), so do bring your hiking boots and a baseball hat.

    Luggage and bags: Any type of bag will do.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In the summers, the temperatures will climb to 100 degrees plus! So, needless to say, bring something cool. Bathing suits are a definite MUST during this time! In the winter, it does get quite chilly and windy so bring something warm. Layering is always a good idea since it could be boiling hot outside, but really cold in the casinos and vice versa. There are a lot of upscale bars and clubs that will not allow jeans so make sure you bring some nicer clothes for a night out on the town! The casinos can go either way - casual or dressy....they really don't care and you'll see all types!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Whatever you forget, you can find in any store.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Not really a place for camping. For that, try Lake Mead which is just 40 minutes outside of Vegas. Check out my page on that coming up soon...

    Miscellaneous: Lots o' cash!
