Comfortable Shoes Tips (25)

Be prepared!

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Wear comfortable walking shoes that allow your feet to breathe. The best way to see Las Vegas is on foot.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies Bring bandaids, aspirin, etc. If you have to buy medical supplies there they can be hard to find on the strip or very expensive.

Comfy shoes meet happy feet

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear You may notice a theme with advice to bring comfy shoes - well, we're all onto something. Las Vegas is not the place to break in your cute Jimmy Choo sandals ... if you plan to do *any* walking, please bring already broken in shoes you know are comfortable.

I spent a good portion of my time in sneakers (which says a lot because I'm not really a sneaker sort of gal) and my broken-in sandals.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies It may be wise to bring some Bandaids in the event you get some blisters from all the walking you do.

Photo Equipment Bring lots of film or if you have a digital camera, make sure you have a large enough memory card for all the pictures you're going to take!

Prevent the blisters!!

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Good confortable walking shoes! If you plan to see anything besides the inside of the hotel you are staying at, prepare to do a lot of walking! There is a hotel on every block, but they are extremely long blocks. There are a few shuttles to connect some of the hotels, but not all!

Comfortable Shoes a Must !!

Luggage and bags Luggage was no hassle. Take what you want! Airport bus should drop you at your hotel door with no problem.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Comfortable shoes are the most important thing you can take!! Tennis shoes may be too hot?? Loose clothing... elastic waist skirts or loose-fitting dresses good for women. I saw quite a few umbrellas for sun protection! Casual and comfortable attire for men. Bellagio requires nicer clothing, but most casinos are very, very casual.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies Sunscreen (we saw lots of "lobsters")!

Photo Equipment Oh, yes!!! There are so many things you can photograph here. Great places for family photos include: Luxor, Excalibur, Flamingo Hilton, Mirage, Venetian, and the FREMONT EXPERIENCE (downtown).

Comfort

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.

Packing List

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...

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!!!

Packing List

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 :)

Packing List

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

Packing List

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.

Packing List

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 !!!!

Packing List

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.
