    Comfort

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: If you're going to do any hiking at all, even short walks in any of the surrounding desert, be sure to bring a backpack or other easy-to-carry sack. You'll want to bring along water, sunblock, and possible snacks -- cuz there ain't nuthin' around the desert but more desert.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfort is the key word in Vegas. We saw few people really "dressed up" except for the ones getting married. If you'll be walking or hiking in the deserts, bring sturdy shoes with grippy soles (for scrambling over rocks). Even if you'll just be strolling the strip or walking from slot machine to blackjack table, you'll want comfortable shoes.

    Photo Equipment: Bring lots of film and/or digital media -- there is a lot of freaky $h!t to photograph. :-) Keep in mind that you'll need special film or a camera with special settings in order to really capture the night lights of the Strip.

    Miscellaneous: Sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses are necessities. Also, the desert breeze can kick up and really cool things down, especially at night, so bring a jacket or sweatshirt.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring good walking shoes as Vegas is huge. And to see the glitz and lights, you'll need to walk (even if you are in the casino itself)!

    You may also like to include a suit or gown for the more formal outings like the night entertainment shows. Of course, you can also buy them all in Vegas, shopping is great here!

    Photo Equipment: Zoom and wide-angle lens for all kinds of sceneries. Fast speed films also advisable for night scenes.

    If you really want to see the city...

    Me walking the strip

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfortable shoes are a must! Don't bring shoes you haven't "broken in" you will regret it later.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bandaides if you bring new shoes!

    Sun screen, depending on what time of the year you go...and if you plan on doing a lot of walking, it's a good thing...

    Photo Equipment: Lots of film!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you like to sit out by the pool the hotels usually provide towels for you. Don't take them from your room.

    Miscellaneous: Don't forget to kick back and have fun!!!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you're planning on visiting Las Vegas, I advise you to bring at least one pair of very comfortable shoes. Even a walk to a next door casino can take 10 minutes, and in the Nevada heat, believe me, it seems *a lot* longer than 10 minutes :)

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfortable shoes for pounding up and down the Strip

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You can buy everything here so don't worry if you forget something. Make sure you bring any prescribed medcine.

    Photo Equipment: You need some kind of fancy camera to capture the magic of Vegas at night. Mine certainly hasn't been good enough.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Sun cream and hat as usual

    Luggage and bags: Luggage with wheels makes life easier. Try to find some way to make your bag distinguishable. Seems that everyone who goes to Vegas has the same kind of luggage. I have tied a bright pink ribbon on my bags so I can spot them quickly at baggage claim.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A good sturdy pair of sneakers is a must. You will do A LOT of walking. I always bring a sweater because sometimes the air conditioning in some hotels is too strong.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Definitely bring Alka Seltzer. After stuffing yourself at the buffets and then partaking of free drinks all night in the casino, an antacid is a must. Also, call ahead to your hotel and ask if they have hair dryers in their rooms. Some do and some don't, so it's best to be sure.

    Luggage and bags: You can buy anything & everything in Vegas if you forget it.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Decent pair of walking shoes to walk up & down the Strip. Distances are decieving.

    Photo Equipment: Take loads of film, you'll need them.
    A video is great to get the sound, lights & distance (which you cant get as well on a photo).

    Miscellaneous: When travelling out of Vegas, make sure your car is filled with fuel, as some of the stations are few & far between. Also take plenty of bottled water & a few snacks.
    Check the weather, I didn't & got caught in a flash flood, terrifying but good lesson learnt !!!!

    Luggage and bags: Try to get by with only a carry-on bag. We have done a lot of travelling and have only lost luggage once-coming home from Las Vegas. a good lesson learned.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take comfortable shoes, you'll walk your legs off. Cabs can be a rip off.
