Planning a Trip To Las Vegas

las vegasLas Vegas is ‘the’ place to let your hair down and have fun, and everyone can benefit with a few helpful hints. Sightseeing, activities, wining and dining are at their best when you are ready and prepared with inside city information to plan your Las Vegas itinerary.

Entertainment and Activities
Travel and tourism guide books are updated weekly and available in hotel lobbies, restaurants and McCarren International Airport for the latest news on free attractions, special engagements and valuable coupons for Las Vegas activities and it’s environs. Discounts for Hoover Dam, helicopter tours, show tickets, mall shopping and city dining are jammed packed into every issue to rack up the savings on a fabulous Las Vegas holiday.

Clothing and Attire
The climate conditions in the desert can fluctuate from blistering summer heat to cold and windy in the winter, so be prepared to check the weather conditions before you go. Casual and comfortable clothing is appropriate for daytime sightseeing, however, some of the upscale clubs, dinner houses and casinos prefer a more formal attire.

Shopping and Las Vegas Deals
The Las Vegas Premium Outlet Mall is located at 875 South Grand Central Parkway and is the city’s foremost shopping center to pick up some great deals. Hundreds of retailers offer rock bottom prices on fashion, gifts, toys, jewelry, house wares and more. Shuttle service to the Premium Outlet Mall is provided by the Citizens Area Transit, or CAT bus, running a round trip pick-up and drop-off route from the major hotels on the Strip. Group discounts are available and a multi-lingual staff is ready to help.

Getting To Las Vegas
Some of the best bargain prices for Las Vegas holidays can be made when purchasing a hotel and flight package deal. Rates for weekend and extended stays in a major hotel on the Strip are set by the hotel star system and the day of the week and holidays reserved. In addition to an overnight Las Vegas holiday, southern California bus tours operate a 24 hour gaming excursion to include a coupon book, cash for slots, round trip bus fare and dinner. Because the bus tour one-day escape does not use a hotel room, the rates are about the best deal in town for dinner, a show and a few hours in the casinos.
