Vegas Vibes Tips (39)

General tips

Favorite thing Value is what Las Vegas offers. From low hotels rates, to fine dining (top chefs work in Vegas restaurants), to cheap and filling breakfast. Plus, walk from hotel to hotel. Not only they are very interesting to see, all so differently themed, but you can often find a great music show which you can watch for free, while sipping a beer or a daiquiri.
Get information before you go and you will save some money and have a great vacation. There are plenty of free shows, plenty of huge breakfasts below $ 5, and remember if you are gambling to ask the cashier for the Player's Card. That card will give you comps (short for complimentaries) based on how much you play. Comps can be reedemed toward meals, shows, and hotel rooms discounts.

Fondest memory Honestly the best memory is when the last night I hit the roulette table at the Venetian big time.
Seriously, there are plenty of things to do, and to see in Vegas. It would be a long list.

Everthing is huge and nothing is subtle!

Favorite thing The tacky, glitzy enormity of it all! It is absolutely amazing to see the human characters as well -- from the red leather mini-skirted "business-girl", to the elegant folks wearing designer clothes, to the folks wearing t-shirts that say things your mother would blush at [sometimes even you!]

Fondest memory People-watching

Children and Las Vegas DO mix

Favorite thing There are lots of things for kids to do, and as with most things in Las Vegas, many of them are for free. In particular, pools can be super fun (but remember to Slop! Slap! Slop! to avoid the sun burn)

Fondest memory My daughter's favorite thing about Las Vegas is the BUFFETS. She loves seeing the food before selecting it, being about to choose her own portions and going back for more when she finds something she likes. Brunch is her particular favourite!

A Town of Suspended Reality!

Favorite thing Each year bigger and more spectacular hotels and casinos pop up, drawing the crowds on The Strip but I still like spending time "Downtown."

Don't miss the $1,000,000.00 on display at Binion's Horseshoe .

Located downtown.

Fondest memory My first trip to Las Vegas and my first view of one million dollars!!

That was so long ago. :-)

Gambling isn't the only thing in Vegas.

Favorite thing I'm not a big gambler but I always find my way back to Vegas once to twice a year. I don't know what it is about this city but it's addicting! If you can pull yourself away from the tables and slot machines be sure to see what else Vegas has to offer.

Be sure to check out my other pages for Vegas. There's so much to do and see!!!

Fondest memory All of the INTERESTING people you see and meet in Vegas. WHAT A TOWN!

Just a city

Favorite thing Las Vegas is a city of lights, music, gambling and more. It is my home.

It takes many many people to keep Vegas running and to keep the tourist happy and coming back for more.

There is more to Vegas than just the strip, we have parks, movie theaters and grocery stores just like any other major city in America.

Take a day or even a few hours off from the casinos and take a look around our fine city.

Roller Coasters

Favorite thing We rode the roller coaster at New York New York and the ones at the Stratoshpere.
The New York New York Coaster was really great! It's very fast and jerky so if this is a problem for you it might not be a good idea, but other wise its a great coaster.
The Statoshpere has 3 rides on the top. We went on 2 of them - The Big Shot and the X Scream. The Big shot was the better of the 2 but both were good. The anticipation for the X Scream is worse than the actual ride :). There is information about prices and descriptions of the rides on their web site - http://www.stratospherehotel.com

Historical Photography

Favorite thing Inside Fry's Electronics way up along the top of the store walls in the front and back of the store are these huge fantastic historical photo's of the history of Las Vegas. These caught my immediate attention and I thought they are awesome. Even if you don't come in here to shop, at least make the time to check them out.

what happens in vegas...stays in vegas

Favorite thing Las vegas is fake. Pretend. A weird amusement park for adults. I suppose this gives people a freedom to do whatever they want, be whatever they want ect.. I mean they rent Lamborghini's on the strip, you could be a rock star for a day! Something to be aware of, take adventage of.....or not.

Fondest memory my fondest memory of vegas..was really just being there with my boyfriend...sappy I know, but true

Wander and Gawk

Favorite thing Of all the places I've been, this is the one place where I was totally comfortable being a wide-eyed tourist. So go ahead -- look, stare, GAWK! Point. Laugh. Take a picture. Take another one. Turn around and gawk some more.

Fondest memory My best memory is spending my wedding anniversary sampling the tastes, sounds, and sights of Vegas.

The inhabitants of Las Vegas...

Favorite thing The inhabitants of Las Vegas are all very friendly and make jokes. I liked that. We stayed almost the whole night, because when you are on the strip, even if you do not gamble you enjoy this fairy tale!

Fondest memory Everything that is so glittery, that is does not like real. For one night (or more) you think life on earth is just fun, music, dancing and drinking.
But the next morning you remember the naked truth. For me specially it was a great coming back to earth, because I was partying on the 10th september and we all know what happened the next day. So you see, go there and forget your sorrow in Las Vegas.
