CAESARS PALACE – This is a luxury hotel and casino that is situated on the Las Vegas strip. Caesars Palace offers visitors free shows such as the Fall of Atlantis and Festival Fountain where every hour there are two fountains that are beautiful. There are a variety of world famous restaurants and celebrity chefs here. There is Bacchanal, which consist of casual dining and its 25,000 sq. ft. that sits 600 people. Pure is a popular night club at the Caesars Palace and it has the Pussycat Doll lounge which is where lots of celebrities host invite only parties.
If you do have a car, stay off the Strip as much as possible; it gets very congested and is a huge waste of time and gas. Having said that, It’s generally a pretty car-friendly city away from the Strip. Parking at most off strip casinos such as The Hilton is easy and free. There are many nominally priced, nearby side trips, and if you are there for more than two days, it can be good to get away from the lights and noise. I recommend a self-guided tour at Hoover Dam at Lake Mead, and the Liberace Museum and his supposedly very haunted Italian style restaurant, Carluccio’s Tivoli Gardens (located in the same strip mall type area.) Both choices are fun and quite economical.
For the budget conscience there are four locations where you can get half price show tickets on the day of the show. Tix4Tonight booths are at: fashion show mall, Hawaiian Marketplace, North Strip just south of the Riviera Hotel and downtown at the 4 Queens Hotel.
There are little bits of wisdom for visiting Las vegas on a budget. Never depend on “winning” money to get home, keep money hidden for travel expenses, wait until your last day to do most of your shopping, if you gamble and win, always put away the amount you started with to give yourself the chance to “come out even”, don’t let yourself fall for the get rich dream – Las Vegas is in itself one big business and business’ do not give away money! Don’t try to see all the shows – pick one or two (if you can afford it) special shows and purchase your tickets ahead of time, and then take advantage of all the free entertainment!
I recently took my first trip to Las Vegas and learned quite a bit about how to make my vacation better. I hope these tips will help you plan your Las Vegas vacation and have a wonderful time.
Monte Carlo Resort and Casino – The Mediterranean-themed Monte Carlo Resort and Casino is situated on the Las Vegas Strip, just across from the MGM Grand and next to the New york New York Hotel and Casino. For junkfood lovers, you’ll be glad to know that there is a McDonald’s at the hotel.
As an extra, there is some form of free entertainment at all of them too. I have only listed 7 of Las Vegas’ many shopping centers, one for each day of the week, and all of them are on Las vegas Boulevard (The Strip.) Listed in order of location, the first is on the south end of The Strip, and the last is Downtown. There are several other major malls in Las Vegas, and every casino in town seems to have some kind of mini-mall at least. But most of them only feature what you’d expect in a mall in any city. The malls and shopping centers listed here offer a little something different to make the shopping experience a bit more special.
