Travel Tips

To make the most of your vacation in Las Vegas, it is important that you know some reminders when traveling to the city. Take a look at the following:

  • The best time to go to Las Vegas is between November and January because it’s the least crowded time.
  • Fly to Las Vegas in the middle of the week because it is more affordable. Be flexible with your flight.
  • Compare the hotel rates before checking in. When checking in choose the ones that are close to casinos and clubs so you won’t have to take a cab. Consider Harrah’s, Imperial Palace, Bill’s Gambling Hall, Flamingo, and Bally’s. I am not sure about Planet Hollywood though. Check it out.
  • There are options for you to get to your hotel from the airport. You can take a shuttle bus ($5), a taxi ($15), or limousines ($55-$65).
  • When taking the taxi, tell the driver not to take the freeway to avoid raising your fare by $15.
  • Drinks are free for as long as you are gambling so get yourself to a nickel slot machine and just sit around and wait for the cocktail waitress. But do not drink while eating at restaurants. Drinks aren’t free in there.
  • When getting a cab, ask a doorman to hail a cab. Drivers won’t respond to you. Give the doorman tip.
  • If you plan to try Hoover Dam tour, take one of the tour buses and leave your gadgets and other valuables in your hotel room because they are not allowed on the tour.

Be aware of the things that you have to do while you are in the city so you can enjoy your stay plus you can visit the tourist spots without hassles. Enjoy!
