Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: weather in las vegas can be extreme like in any deserts. it can be really hot in the day and somewhat cold in the night so if you are walking around the vegas area during the day, bring sunglasses to protect you from the glare and sunblock so that you'r skin will not get sunburned moreso if you are taking a dip from the various swimming pools in the hotels of las vegas. Dont forget to bring a baseball cap too to shield your head and face from the burning effects of the sun hence these stuffs are a must if you are going to vegas and plan to walk around during the day.
Miscellaneous: Bring a sports bottle or some such with you. Fill with ice and water before you leave the hotel. Humidity is like 8% here and you will dehydrate before you know it. Bottled water is EXPENSIVE on the strip and often hard to find. We have had several friends come into town and we always run to Wal-mart and pick up one of those fannypacks with the two water bottles for like $10 so they will have a place for their wallet and a place for the bottles.
Sneakers a must...
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: The two most important things to bring to Las Vegas is Sunglasses and Sunscreen. Been there in the height of summer was quite a shock esp since coming from New Zealand, I had never felt heat like that before...hot...dry...the great thing about walking down the Strip is they have huge fans blowing out mist to cool you down.
Miscellaneous: Bottled water... you can never get enough of water in that heat !
Luggage and bags:
Make sure that you take a small bag so that you can keep your sun lotion with you....you will need it!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Make sure that you take comfortable shoes with you as you will be walking all day! You don't want any blisters!
Vegas is HOT outside but inside the hotels/casinos are air conditioned, so you need to strike a balance for being outside as well as in!
Bring shorts and short sleave shirts in summer!
Miscellaneous: Sunscreen is a must if you visit in the summer! You are usually walking from casino to casino and the weather is almost always over 90 degress in the summer.
We had a jeep and we drove with the top down, bring a hat if you plan to do the same!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen!
Photo Equipment: Cameras and fast film(if you haven't gone digital yet) to capture those wonderful Las Vegas lights! If you have an SLR don't foget your polarizer filter for the desert shots.
Miscellaneous: Bring water. It's very hot, you don't want to get dehydrated.
From May to October, Las Vegas is almost always sunny and hot. You definitely need sunglasses and sunscreen while you are there. That sun will roast you in a matter of minutes there.
Photo Equipment: Cameras are alaways a must.
Miscellaneous: Air conditioning is definitely a necessity here.
Comfortable shoes to walk down "The Strip"
Miscellaneous: Sunglasses even in the winter, sunlight could be bright even the temperature is low. Eye drops are also recommended, humidity is not too good for contact lenses wearers (sometimes!).
Luggage and bags:
Not many rooms have refrigerators, so bring a small cooler or pick a cheap styrophoam one up at the local convenience store so you can keep your beverages on ice.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Day time / Walking off that hangover: Comfortable shoes, cotton or silk shirts, dark sunglasses, and plenty of bottled water.
Nightlife / party-time: Hipster clothing, no jeans for guys.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Lotion, Lotion and more Lotion. During the day, make sure the lotion has SPF 15 or greater. At night, make sure it smells nice.
The air is dry here folks, you don't want to look/feel like an alligator.
Photo Equipment: Camera phone is the best utility for the partygoer. You can let all your friends back home know what kind of fun you're having or lure your gambling buddy into the club by showing him/her all the debauchery. Just remember, what happens in vegas, stays in vegas!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Unless your familiar with Lake Mead, all hotel pools come equipped with chaise lounges and cocktail servers. So bikinis, oil, shades and $$ are all you need.
Miscellaneous: If it is at all possible, bring some of your own bottled water with you to Las Vegas. It is very hot and dry there and it's very important to stay hydrated. Water tends to be expensive in Las Vegas (especially if you buy it at a hotel store), so bringing your own is cost-effective. If you can't bring your own water, stock up at a local liquor store (less expensive) at the beginning of your trip. Keep them in your hotel room and take one with you whenever you're out walking around the strip.
You MUST bring sunscreen when you go to Las Vegas. Even in the winter. I can't tell you how many times I see tourists walking around just burnt to a crisp. The desert sun is intense and you need protection.
You should wear sunscreen and a hat, not only when you're lying around the pool, but when you're walking down the Strip checking out the sights.
Pack comfortable shoes, a light weight jacket the evenings can be cool you may also need it in the hotels/casinos with the air conditioning.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Pack plenty of sun cream it gets HOT!
Photo Equipment: Take plenty of films there is so much to see, although you can by out there.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Swim wear if you decide to use the pools
Luggage and bags:
No bags. Carrying anything will exhaust you in no time in the summer heat.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: White top, white or light colored pants. Do not wear black or dark shirts or tops! They absorb heat.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Water. Chilled or ice water to keep you hydrated at all times.
Photo Equipment: Camera. Bring a small, Point & Shoot digital camera with a good size memory card and strong batteries.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Running shoes for lots of walk.
Miscellaneous: Dress elegantly. Formal or semi-formal clothing when you want to play or gamble in a casino.
Oh, one more thing. Bring tons of money and don't cry if you lose it all. :)
Miscellaneous: Everything in Vegas is overpriced including water. I'm also not someone who likes drinking water out of the bathroom facet (pet peeve, I suppose). I'd suggest bringing a few bottles of water from home. It's great to have when you wake up in the morning or before you go to bed. Bally's was charging $3.50 per bottle of water in the room. If you drink a lot of water, like myself, bringing a few bottles in your suitcase can really save you a few bucks. Not to mention, you'll surely make yourself drink them so you don't dehydrate just in the fact that you won't want to carry them home with you and it will make room in your suitcase for souvenirs.
If you wear a nice straw hat (instead of a baseball cap, ladies only), you won't feel conspicuous in the nicer hotels, and you'll protect your oh-so-fair skin.
Also, if you are bald like my dad, PLEASE wear sunscreen and a hat. Your pink head looks ridiculous.
Anyone can get burned, even walking from casino to casino. The sun is very strong.
