am thinking of going to las vegas next year but my fiancee needs some convincing as she just associates it with gambling and big hotels.
what sort of things are there to do?
maybe in the space of a week-10 days, what things could you fit in such as places of interest, shows etc..
we will be on a quite limited budget so how much are the shows and food etc.. we are not after posh nosh.
can you go into all the posh hotels such as mgm, bellagio, mirage etc even if you are not staying there and use their facilities or not?
all help would be gratefully received.
thanks a lot
Visit http://www.vegas.com to get an idea of shows and prices, but don't book through that site as it is expensive. Shows can run from $30 - 300 with everything in between. Elton John starts at $100, Love starts at $75.
You can always visit the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire. You can go indoor skydiving and fire a machine gun, all at a price.
Use the Search facility to find the topic on buffets and restaurants rather than me repeat it here.
how much is that casino coupons book thingy?
Depending on the buffet, there will most likely be several different cooking stations with different types of food. As an example, the Coasts buffets (off strip locations only) have Seafood, Chinese, Mongolian, American, Mexican, Italian and a dessert station. There is also a separate soup and salad bar. Others have more choices, and some have less. There are lots of different buffets.
As for the American Casino Guide, I got mine from amazon for around £8. Make sure you get the correct year when you order. the 2008 book will be published in November this year.
does anyone think that i would be better staying in a cheaper hotel and just visiting the 5 star ones, or is it worth the extra money to stay in the bellagio for example?
i would definately stay there again,because we only slept there & for that purpose,it was fine.
when we go in feb,we are gonna have 2 nights,at the bellagio just for the experience,but because we are taking our 7 year old grandaughter,with us,she has chosen to stay the rest of the nights,at the excalibur.
i would look to stay,at the imperial palace,for its location alone,then maybe treat yourself,to your last couple of nights,somewhere nice.
you will love vegas
The more expensive hotels are beautiful, but you pay for the privilege of staying in them, with higher prices for drinks and other services.
We go back in 9 weeks and will be staying 3 nights at the Imperial Palace, 1 night at the Bellagio for the experience and 3 nights at Planet Hollywood.
See the Bellagio fountains (once from the sidewalk, once from the Eiffel tower)
See the various animals - lions, white tigers etc
See the Mirage volcano erupt
See the Treasure Island Pirates show
See the Strip at night (deuce bus, helicopter, or top of the Strat tower if funds permit)
