My biggest call out is to bring a comfortable...and I mean COMFORTABLE pair of shoes if you're planning on walking around. The strip is deceptive. You always think you are closer to your destination than you really are. Your feet will be swollen by the end of your day if you attempt the walk in any sort of heel/wedge/sandals.
Also, be sure to monitor the weather a few weeks prior to your trip. Las Vegas is notorious for random weather changes. I have gotten caught in flash floods, snow storms, wind storms, and 105 degree temperatures!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Most of the hotels provide you with a blow dryer and bathroom toiletries. (i.e. shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, bar soap, and body lotion) I usually bring my makeup, tweezers, fragrance, band-aids, and aspirin. Cotton rounds and Q-tips are sometimes provided as well.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: HAT!
Miscellaneous: If you don't care for the diluted drinks your cocktail waitress is serving then I highly suggest buying your own bottle of liquor outside of Las Vegas. Any store/gift shop that serves alcohol marks their prices up 1000%!!

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.
Be prepared for the weather. It can be chilly in the winter, 40 degrees F during the day. The Fall and Spring get very windy. And the summers are, you guessed it, very hot. The evenings stay quite warm in the summer, but it is cool in the air conditioned casinos so you might actually need a sweater. Bring good comfy shoes. I can't say this enough. Your feet will hurt. Everything is big and takes a long time to walk to. Even if you are just walking to your car. Dress is casual most places, but here is your chance to put on the ritz. Depending on where you stay dictates what you will wear. The Palms is going to have patrons dressed more trendily while the downtown hotels will have more of your blue collar kind of crowd.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen. Antacids-you will be eating and drinking a lot. Headache medicine-duh! An eye mask is great since you will probably be trying to sleep in the daylight hours. Most hotels have good insulation, but you might want earplugs too.
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.
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!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: My husband forgot his flip flops and he burnt the bottom of his feet on the pavement around the pool. It just sits there and soaks up the Vegas sun all day and it's hot as hades. Adam couldn't run fast enough to avoid the burn.
When in Vegas, you can always where shorts and a Tee. It is never to cold. In summer, you should bring lot's of shorts, shirts, and hats.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: It is a necessity to bring Sun screen with you. Even in the winter time, you can get sunburnt. Always put some on before you walk out the door.
Photo Equipment: Bring lot's of film. LV is a beautiful city.
light clothing (light colors, no black/brown colors)
comfortable shoes as you will wind up walking a whole lot
no rain gear (doesn't rain in Vegas and if it does, it pours like crazy for 15 minutes)
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: the regular things you bring on any trip (although there is a CVS pharmacy nearby where you can purchase anything you forgot)
Photo Equipment: whole lot of film
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Take sun screen. It gets very hot there (no humidity though)
Miscellaneous: *no bug spray needed. There are NO bugs there at all. No birds, no squirrels, no animals at all, except in Flamingo Casino.
It does cool down quite significantly in the winter months in Las Vegas. Even though it is in the Mojave Desert, keep in mind that deserts do not conduct heat well. You will want a jacket or coat depending on when you go. It CAN get cold. Trust me.
Photo Equipment: Bring your film or disposable camera WITH you. You are captive when you get to Las Vegas and they know it. Even the drugstores overcharge for film and disposable camera. Bring it with you, and be careful with the x-rays at the airports...they can damage film.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Bring sunscreen if you burn easily. The sun is ALWAYS shining here. I think it rains about 2-3 days a year. I am almost transparent so I defintely bring it with me. Again, if you have to buy it here it will cost you a fortune. Especially if you buy it at the hotel.
Miscellaneous: CIGARETTES. If you smoke, bring a carton with you. Cigarettes are very expensive here. At least compared to where I live. You can expect to pay about $6.50 to $7.00 a pack depending on where you buy them. That includes drugstores and gas stations. Also keep in mind that you will be gambling and drinking, so a carton is almost a must.
Luggage and bags:
A bag like this one is definitely overkill, unless you're moving to the area.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Vegas is mostly casual. Summers are very hot, so shorts, t shirts and bathing suits are the norm, along with comfortable shoes. Winter is a bit cooler so jackets and long sleeves are a good idea. Some restaurants and clubs are dressier but, unless you're doing this every night, there's no need to bring too much.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen in the summer. Also, chapstick and moisturizer are good ideas. Its very dry out here.
You send me: Las Vegas is finally an official city of the future as we now boast an official internet cafe - the appropriately named Internet Cafe, to be specific, on Las Vegas Blvd. in the Polo Towers shopping center, next to the Harley Davidson Cafe. Internet service is $8 for a half-hour and $12 for an hour. Pay-per-use Web terminals were also recently spotted at the Hard Rock Hotel and McCarran International Airport; the MGM Business Center offers five minutes of access for $5; and Mandalay Bay offers access for approximately $10 per half-hour. The Tropicana Hotel has four Internet terminals near the buffet -- access costs $5 for 10 minutes
Free Web access is provided at local libraries, but you'll have to wait in line. The closest library to the Strip is at Maryland and Flamingo, and can be reached at 702-733-7810. If you happen to be at Fitzgerald's in downtown Vegas, they offer internet access for 20 cents a minute and the stations are located near check in.
And Coffemani@ Las Vegas (2417 Las Vegas Blvd. South, (702) 737-5241) provides two badly needed elements to the Strip -- a stand-alone coffeehouse that's not a Starbucks, and an Internet café that's not plagued by slow connections, dense crowds or three-deep geekdom. It's right next door to the Holy Cow Brewery.
