trip to vegas
If you’ve never been to Las Vegas (Sin City), then you should know that there are actual rules and laws to be follow while you’re in Sin City. For you veterans, this will be a refresher course. However, remember to keep an open mind: you might just learn something new, because Vegas is forever changing. HAVE FUN!
Take Notes of anything you may want to remember:
Before you arrive…
Do bring money when you come.
Do bring money when you come. “CASH IS KING” in Las Vegas! If you are on a budget, you can survive with just $300-$400 as long as you spend wisely. When I talk about budgeting this means you will just be catching all the “free” shows and missing out on all the other great shows. Please keep in mind that the free shows are not all that bad at all.
Don’t expect to find the same old Las Vegas that you see in old movies portraying Vegas.
Vegas is forever changing. Within the past 10 years or so there have been many locations demolished to make room for new hotels and casinos.
Do plan to get a few great bargains.
For you bargain hunters, there are many old establishments still hanging in there. When I say old establishments, I am talking about downtown Las Vegas and other Hotels/Casinos not located near the main strip. The old establishments of Las Vegas are constantly trying to compete with the dancing fountains of the Bellagio and the spit-fire volcanoes. So how are they still making it? Through the deep discounted dining experiences they offer visitors. In Vegas, you can still find a T-bone steak for $4.95. (You just have to know where to look.)
Don’t come to Vegas during peak times.
Yes, everyone wants to get away during the weekend. But if you’re planning on a weekend trip to Vegas, be ready to spend some extra money. Traveling to Vegas in the middle of the week, Christmas and when conventions are on hiatus, is a great way to enjoy the city without the crowds or the expense. Another great time to visit Vegas, if you can stand the heat, is during the mid-summer, when it’s too hot for most visitors.
Do come to Vegas during peak times.
Yes, come to Las Vegas during peak weekends or holidays if your out to just be surrounded by a lot of positive spirited people. If your like the average party goer then traveling to Las Vegas during peak weekends would be ideal so long as you plan in advance. You can find more details on tips for planning in advance for peak weekends HERE.
Don’t expect to get the most out of your Vegas vacation if you haven’t planned in advance.
Las Vegas is a large city with a lot to choose from — casinos, spas, restaurants, shows. It can be overwhelming. To avoid delays once you arrive in Vegas, plan ahead. Map out where you want to go, see and do while in Sin City. Don’t waste one minute. Once you land, hit the ground running.
