Las Vegas Hotel Deals On The East Side Of The Strip

What Do i Pack – for the most part, Las vegas is a casual city and people will wear shorts and sport shirts at restaurants and the casinos during the day. Bring loose fitting cotton clothes and you’ll want sneakers or comfortable walking shoes. Even if you stay on the Strip, you will do a lot of walking as the hotels are enormous and just going from one to another just next door could be half a mile. For evening, light sport jackets for gentlemen and a dress or nice pantsuit for the ladies is expected in fine dining restaurants. If you’re going to a hot nightclub, they all have dress codes so leave the sneakers at home and prepare to look stunning. During the winter months, you’ll want a jacket or sweater for evening because it can get down into the 30’s.

One of the best things about gambling in Vegas are the free drinks. To take advantage of this, you need only to park yourself at a slot machine or other gaming area until a cocktail waitress rolls through calling ‘cocktails..cocktails.!?’ The drinks are free, but tips are expected, especially if you would like to continue to drink.

Las Vegas is easy and economical to fly to, with millions of arrivals and departures each month through McCarran International Airport, and flights as low as from many U.S. cities. Even though Las Vegas is busy year round, with “high season” being usually from January through November, summer deals abound, and this summer, Las vegas is vying for your business after lower than normal returns in the present economical slump. Driving to Las vegas is also a wonderful, scenic filled trip and gives you the option to take the 4.5 hour detour to the Grand Canyon (there are also day tours available from Las Vegas) – to wrap up a memorable summer vacation.

Just two blocks east of the strip is a small hotel casino called Greek Isles, home of the Haunted Vegas Tour. Anyone interested in the paranormal, crime, and the general darker side of history will find this tour delightful. All information on the web describes a pre-tour viewing of a show called Haunted Vegas, but luckily, that is no more. If i want to watch TV, I’ll turn on History Channel in my hotel room for free, thank you. Instead, the pre-tour event was a somewhat cheeky yet atmospheric magic show demonstrating Victorian era spiritualism techniques.

Transportation Around town – Las vegas streets are laid out in a grid pattern so it is very easy to get around if you are driving. Rush hour is around 3 p.m. as that is when the casino staff changes shift. Avoid Interstate 15 at that time. If you are staying in a Strip hotel and confining your activities to that area, there is no reason to bother with a rental car. The public buses are great and there is a special double decker bus called the “Deuce” which travels up and down Las Vegas Blvd. (the Strip) 24 hours a day. The fare is one way but you can get a ticket that is good for a 24 hour period for unlimited travel.

For this reason, casinos always feature a variety of shopping options, like boutiques, in their retail arcades. When you need a break from walking the floor, or perhaps need to take a walk after sitting a few hours at a table, check out the shops.

Last time we were in Las vegas we had the pleasure of catching this show. If you are unaware of what Cirque Du Soleil is I can tell you that it is kind of like being at a circus on steroids. There is dancing, gymnasts/acrobats, singers, and magicians. There are no amateurs here, and since this is a long term show there are also a lot of amazing affects going on as well through out the entire performance. If you are going to Las vegas and want to take in a show while you are there I highly recommend Mystere Cirque Du Soleil.
