    Dee and her luggage at O'Hare Airport, Chicago

    Luggage and bags: Since we flew to Vegas, we made sure we each had only one carry-on bag and one other small item

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfortable shoes is a must. I had a pedometer and knew how far we walked each day. The LEAST amount of walking was 6 miles and the most was18 miles. We average about 14 miles each day; thus, we made sure we had comfortable, sturdy shoes.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Because of flying regulations, we took only very small bottle of toiletries and had to have them in a quart-sized baggie that had to checked through security. I put my vitamins and medicine into a pill dispenser and into another quart-sized baggie.

    Photo Equipment: A digital camera, two sets of batteries and a couple of disks [just in case].

    Miscellaneous: We took a notebook computer, journal, my Kindle [which does away with books, which add weight].

    Bring your Woolly Pully

    by SabrinaSummerville Updated Jun 12, 2006

    Doggy clothes in doggy shop!!

    Luggage and bags: I strongly advise you to bring a soft fold up extra suitcase/bag if you intend to shop. There's so much to buy - from clothes and shoes to mini roulette tables and slot machines. I bought an extra bag but I think the shops know what they're at as I found the price of luggaage a lot higher than at home. Plus, nobody would tell me where to buy a CHEAP suitcase! NB Shops - cheap is NOT 300 dollars!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: There's so much to do in Vegas, and it's so varied, that you really need to bring half the shoes in your wardrobe. Then, of course, there are the shoes you'll want to buy there.

    You need your non slip flat pool shoes, your girly glamour Vegas-style pool shoes, your glitzy high heels, your glitzy flatties for walking home from the clubs, your comfortable flatties for walking the Grand Canyon.

    As for clothes, it's incredibly hot outside in Summer and icy cool inside (aircon) so you really will need something wark over your shoulders in many of the restaurants.

    Now do you follow me?????

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You don't need to bring a thing - Vegas is a true 24 hour City. You can buy whatever you want at any time of day or night.

    As for insect repellant - Vegas is amazingly short on flies. Maybe they pay them to stay away. It was glorious.

    Photo Equipment: Bring at least twice as much memory for your digital camera than you think you want/need. Every moment is a photo opportunity. I bought extra memory here but it doesn't seem to be entirely compatible with my camera equipment at home.

    Miscellaneous: There's a mall in just about every hotel - you won't need to look far for anything you want.

    Just look at the pic here of items in a doggie clothes shop!

    Packing tips to help you in Las Vegas

    by Silverflower Updated Feb 4, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    All the teddies we won-and needed a new case for!

    Luggage and bags: Plenty of spare room! We bought so much in the great shopping malls (and my partner won me so many teddies at Midway in Circus Circus) that we had to buy an extra suitcase!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A good pair of comfy flat shoes is essential for walking up and down the strip. Walking is really the best way to explore the hotels on the strip so your feet need to be looked after.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Suntan lotion and aftersun. The temps in Las Vegas are extremely high.We went in September and it was hitting 100 degrees every day.You may think walking along the strip you won't burn because you're in and out of the hotels and shops, but don't under estimate the strength of that sun!

    Photo Equipment: A digital camera is an absolute must. We have one that can also film mini movies which was great for when we visited the Grand Canyon in the helicopter. There are plenty of places on the stript to print off photos from your digital camera if (like us!) you're impatient and can't wait till you get back home to print off copies!

    Wear a Watch

    by SteveOSF Updated Jun 7, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wear a watch in Las Vegas

    Miscellaneous: Las Vegas casinos are notorious for their lack of clocks. Clocks are harder to find in a gambling joint than a winning slot machine. Las Vegas casinos are open twenty-four hours a day seven days a week. Their management does not want you to realize how long you have been gambling or that it is long past your bedtime. In fact, you usually can not even tell if it is night or day outside. Carry a watch so you don’t loose track of time. This will help you from gambling way too long, help you from missing your dinner or show, and actually help you to remember to use your hotel room to get some sleep when in town.

    Watches tend to be better than cell phones that also show the time. A watch is more convenient since you don’t have to dig it out of a pocket pr purse to check the time. A watch is always available to see and makes it easier to keep track of time.

  • Casual and Comfortable!

    by Jabberjenn Written Jul 21, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wear comfortable shoes!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Without a doubt, the most important thing to bring to Vegas is a comfortable pair of walking shoes. There is so much to see and do, you'll really do so much more walking than you think!

    Aside from comfy shoes, casual clothing is really your best bet. The nightclubs are the only places where people tend to dress on the "fancier" side, but inside the casinos comfort is the key!

    For any of you who get "chilled" rather easily, you may want to bring a light sweater or something with long sleeves to tie around your waist so it's easily accessible when you need it.....many of the casinos keep the air conditioning VERY cold, so you do want to be prepared for that!

    The Vegas heat can be very brutal in the summer, so be sure to dress light and comfy. Even the nighttime hours can boast temperatures in the 90's. In the fall and winter, however, the evening temperatures can dip down quite a bit, so if you do visit this time of year you may want to pack a light jacket and a pair of long pants.

    Miscellaneous: Vegas is a city of fun....so don't fret too much about anything. Have fun, be safe, and enjoy this magical city!

    Las Vegas Must-Brings

    At the bridge going to New York  New York Hotel
    1 more image

    Luggage and bags: bring a backpack or a large-enough bag to carry a bottle of water when you go hotel-hopping.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: light clothes is recommendable but bring a light jacket. as the heat goes up outside, the hotels tend to turn on their airconditioners are full blast. So it'll be cold inside and hot outside.
    the air gets cool starting dusk till dawn.

    comfortable shoes is a must! you'll be walking and walking and walking...

    weather gear: it doesn't rain much and you can slip into a hotel if it does. no need for rain gear. sunglasses and hats are important.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: sunscreen is important. also lip balm. lip balm is a must even if you don't plan to go outside. the air in Las Vegas is so dry(inside and outside hotels), your lips will crack. remember, the airconditioner's main purpose is to draw the moisture from the air. thus, the cold air inside the hotels are very dry.
    brings lots of moisturizers.

    Rubber Soles, a Wrap, and Water

    by Rixie Updated Dec 6, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring shoes with rubber soles, as thick as you can get and still look professional. At the Convention Center, you’ll be walking on concrete floors covered only with thin carpeting, and it’s very jarring to your spine and knees.

    Always take a sweater or light jacket with you, even if the temperatures are in triple digits. The air conditioning inside buildings is sometimes so cold that you go from broiling to freezing. Bringing a shawl to dinner worked for me.

    A refillable water bottle is handy to have in Las Vegas' dry, hot climate. It can get expensive to buy bottled water.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Bring as much as you need, but make sure your purse zips.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You're mostly inside. Bring swimsuits, comfortable walking shoes, and all types of clothing, because you can dress up or you can dress down, and you'll have fun doing both.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you forgot it, they''ll have it, so don't worry about it.

    Photo Equipment: Camera, of course.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Not needed.

    Miscellaneous: Plan for everything and anything. You're in Vegas.

    10 things not to pack when going to Vegas...

    by bryINpoland Updated Mar 5, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    me, gosia, renata, and justin with horse and wagon

    Miscellaneous: *No more then one credit card...

    * Your wife...

    * Your husband...

    * Your secrets to gambling book (pawn it and put all the money on black)

    * The title to your car, your house, or any other property titles...

    * The account number to your childrens college funds (even if u think they are not really cut out for college)

    * Your lucky rabbit foot, your four leaf clover, lucky penny, and all your other lucky medalions. They dont work in vegas...

    * Sometimes its better to leave the camera at home, my parents and friends havent seen half of my vegas pictures, nor will they ever! (good tip for anyone attending a bachlor, or bachloret party)

    * (for men from europe or miami) leave the speedos at home, the Vegas hotels have made a city wide band on speedos at hotel pools ... ok this isnt true, but trust me, unpack them now.

    * Last but not least, leave all high expectations behind of hitting big, by leaving this at home, it makes it so much sweeter when u hit, and so much easier when u dont...

    The air conditioned desert

    by Andraf Updated Jan 11, 2008
    Leaving home with heavy suitcases

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Las Vegas is very hot in the summer months and if you didn't come here to gamble non-stop in the same casino you are bound to go outside and walk in the melting sun. Bring sunscreen and a pair of sunglasses. It's also a good idea to wear a hat.

    If you're visiting in the winter, bear in mind that it gets cold when the evening comes so you'll want to bring a jacket or a sweater.

    Most hotels have a pool so bring your swimming suit along.

    People here dress casually but if you plan to go to a show you may want to bring something more dressy.

    Last but not least bring some comfortable shoes since you're gonna do a lot of walking.

    Miscellaneous: As for the rest, if you forget something don't worry. You can buy it here whenever you want at any time of day or night.

    **PACK LIGHT**

    by lohki Updated Jan 24, 2008
    And this is just day one.

    Luggage and bags: let me say that again... pack light! That is the most important tip.

    I also suggest bringing an extra duffle bag that can be folded empty in your luggage, to be filled with your many new treasures. This will help you avoid the need to BUY a NEW bag since said treasures won't fit in the bag that you brought!

    Accessorize

    by Poznick Written Mar 17, 2008

    Miscellaneous: When in Vegas, your main objective is to look and act as fly as possible. It is therefor essential to bring along a dope-ass hat or pair of shades to send out the message that you are on the party warpath.

    Pack an umbrella stroller for your kid!

    My niece in her umbrella stroller. This helps!

    Luggage and bags: This is very helpful later because you can use the stroller to put all your purses, bags of drinks, shopping bags and to hold your camera and other stuff. If you are tired holding your baby or toddler, you can easily put them in the stroller.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Make sure to pack some nice comfy flip-flops for them. They can walk around inside the hotel.
