Information / Sources Tips (45)

Public facilities

Favorite thing Instead of truing to find restrooms along the Strip you can freely use any of the toilets in any of the hotels along the Strip and you aren't expected to spend money in the casino or restaurants to use the facilities.

Fondest memory Restrooms are beautifully decorated and are there for anybody to use.

Restrooms are usually well marked by signs in most casinos.

Parking in Las Vegas

Favorite thing The parking areas in most places in the downtown las vegas areas are not free unless you have it validated at the establishment that you are gambling or eating or shopping, they also have parking areas that charge between $ 5 to $ 10 per vehicle for up to 4 hours. In the Strip area, most Casino Complexes like the Bellagio or Wynn or Palazzo have free self parking areas for unlimited parking but the only caveat is that thy have no security so you park at your own risk. the best bet will be via Valet Parking at any establishment since they are free and you only have to tip the valet attendant to b able to do the valet parking.

Fondest memory lots of free self parking areas and valet parking

The Deuce

Favorite thing Definitely pay the $7 for 24 hours.

The Deuce is the bus which runs along the Strip.

From one end to the other - The Luxor down to Old Vegas!

Many stops along the way!

Buy tickets at the stops or when you board!

Double deckers buses (enclosed) - take pictures through the big windows up front on top ;)

More seating up top!

Cheers!

Free Wireless Internet Access in Las Vegas

Favorite thing I don't know specifically the free wifi situation in Las Vegas, but in the US there's free wifi in McDonald's and Starbucks Cafe.

I doubt there is free wifi in the casino resorts due to security reasons.

Great dining discounts and cheap travel

Favorite thing Take a punt on the American Casino Guide book, which looks like it can half the cost of a buffet or meal at many dozen locations in Las Vegas - check the deals here, and there is a link to order it for $12.75.

http://www.cheapovegas.com/acg_coupons.php

If anyone on Blighty is interested, Spring 2010 it's £9.68 delivered from Amazon.

Also you can print innumerable discount coupons at home before you go at
http://www.destinationcoupons.com/Nevada/Las_Vegas/las-vegas-restaurants.asp

or the less well organized(!)
http://www.vegas4locals.com/couponsdining.html

and there is even an option of a day pass for all buffets at multiple locations

http://smartervegas.com/dining/restaurant/visiticketcom/coupons.aspx

If you are up and down the strip now have the monorail www.lvmonorail.com, this takes you right from MGMs far as Sahara in the North, which is not too far from Fremont Street, and at worst a very inexpensive cab fare. A single trip is $5 but 3 day unlimited pass good value at $30.

cheap drinks

Favorite thing We found that in Vegas drinks could be expensive in various locations, the most we paid for to pints of draught beer was $30 about £20 . We did find a small back street bar where a bottle of beer was $ 1.50 the locals were friendly and the female bar staff charming!
It was behind the Flamingo hotel on a corner about 2 blocks down (less than 5mins walk from the strip).
Next door is an Italian restaurant called Battista 's which was pretty good cost about $30 per head includes all the red or white wine you can drink for free!

“THE CITY OF SIN”

Favorite thing We don't do much gambling, we love going to the shows as it has it's most spectacular shows one can see. Yes, it can be a bit draining to your budget but again it's not like an everyday entertainment so we find it all worth going to Las Vegas. The weather, all year round is normally on the extreme weather. Summer is extremely hot, which makes you feel your inside the biggest oven in the world, and when winter comes it normally does not snow (except for last year which was 2008, Las Vegas came up with snow! The world was astound to learn that Las Vegas snow. Otherwise, during winter Las Vegas is windy and reasonable for everyone to walk around with a pretty good thick jacket.
The hotels we had stayed in were always quite fancy and spectacular views as we were fortunate to be assigned to one of the highest floors of the hotel. Services in Las Vegas we always experience it to be very much to everyone's satisfactory...but as they say, what goes on in Las Vegas, stays in LAS VEGAS!

Fondest memory The word LAS VEGAS in Spanish it can mean “The or Those Meadows”. One is able to consider Las Vegas the international renowned resort for gambling, fine dining, entertainment and of-course shopping. Many would agree that these little city happens to be the world’s most entertaining place...well of-course there are few more however, when Las Vegas entertains it is taken seriously.
Since the year 2007 we understand that just in the metropolitan area was 1,836,333 to be exact...so by this date this would have been added then.
The “strip” as everyone calls it, is about 3.8 miles (according to our GPS). Majority of the well known hotels and casino as well as the resorts as we call it you will find them in the “strip” of Las Vegas.
Please let’s not ignore one of the most important beauty...it is the most dramatic architecture of Las Vegas, one architecture would be more beautiful than the one built a year or two years ago, there is always a new hotel or resort that has just been completed with more exotic architect.

Looking for a cheaper hotel?

Favorite thing The hotels located at the northern part of the Strip are cheaper than those located at the South of the Strip...

When booking your hotel, make sure to check the location of your hotel because it does make a lot of difference. If you are just pinching $10.00-$20.00 per day, you might as well book at the center of the strip because this will eliminate much of your transportation expense.

The old hotels are located in the northern part of the Strip. However, these hotels are very cheap and the food are also inexpensive. The bus fare going to the Northern Strip is $2.00...

Booking hotels

Favorite thing Make sure to book at a hotel where the location is at the center of the Las Vegas Strip. This will save you time, effort and money because most of the nice free shows and nice hotels are located at the middle of the Strip. This will also save you from taking the cab or taking the bus.

Fondest memory We love just walking around the strip watching the free shows starting at the Fountain Show of the Bellagio Hotel, the Pirates at the Treasure Island, the volcanic eruption at the Mirage, the fights of the Atlantis at the Caesar's Palace, the magician's tricks at The V's at the Alladin Hotel, the children's game shows at the Circus' Circus...

Bus Pass

Favorite thing It is way cheaper to buy a two-day pass than buying bus tickets each time. It saves you a lot of money...

Fondest memory We enjoyed watching shows in Las Vegas. We have watched the Cirque du Soleil, the Fab Four, the Burlesque (not with kids though), ...Watching concerts in Las Vegas is fun...Just make sure to reserve early to get the best seats and best deal!

Book the Cirque du Soleil ahead of time

Favorite thing Last year when we came here, I booked our tickets for the Mystere Show of the Cirque du Soleil at the Treasure Island Hotel. The cost was only $85 per person at that time. And we had good seating! My family enjoyed the show so much that we wanted to see another show ot the Cirque du Soleil.

So, this time that we went to Las Vegas again, we didn't really had the plan of watching the original Cirque Du Soleil at Bellagio Hotel. But since we had so much time on our hand, my children and I went back to Bellagio Hotel and chance if we could buy our tickets.

We went at Bellagio Hotel at 6 pm because the show starts at 7:30 pm. The show is already booked. So, we tried the next show which was at 10:30 pm and that show is also sold out!

My children were kind of disappointed so we just walked around the block and at the strip until it was about time for us to go back to Henderson.

Make sure to book the shows ahead of time because you will save a lot of money. The tickets at that time was already $110 per person. Even if we were willing to pay that much, the show was already sold out!

Fondest memory Each time we come to Las Vegas, we see different kinds of shows. But this time, we didn't because we lack planning...But, still we had fun going to visit the Conservatory at the Bellagio Hotel and saw the Chuihully's glass artworks.

Tuesday Nights in Vegas? Weekday nights?

Favorite thing A VTer asked in the Forum if a Tuesday night in June would be nice in Vegas --- less people? but less fun?

It may be a little warm on that Tuesday night in June but it will still be loaded with fun in the city that never sleeps. Being a weekday, there are better hotel deals, still lots of people but much less than during the weekend!

However, major concerts are usually on Saturdays as you can see on the list of Vegas concerts at http://www.wedoitallvegas.com/Las-Vegas-Concerts.asp

And yes, there's even a website that is solely dedicated on what to do in Vegas on Tuesday nights! Visit http://www.bachelorvegas.com/options/tuesdays.html

But basically, every day of the week in Vegas has something to offer --- there is reason why it has become one of the top tourist destinations!

Fondest memory Seeing Vegas for the first time at night time when I was I teenager...amazing lights in the middle of the desert
