i’m a night owl. so, vegas is my kind of town. ;) the day starts around lunch or dinner time. whichever you choose. ;) nightlife is amazing, there are a ton of great shows, and restaurants. before and after the casinos. ;)
if you can afford to stay in bellagio, do. if not, visit at least once. you won’t want to leave. try the croissant at the jean c… something patisserie. it is $5 and worth every penny. don’t miss the dancing fountains during the day AND at night. they are beautiful.
if shows are of any interest at all, see O. it is spectacular. the next time around i plan to see KA.
they want your money early. the slots machines are greeting you in the airport right when you get off the plane. ;)
don’t miss the venetian. it’s quite impressive.
overlook the ugly brown exterior of the wynn, and do go inside because it is gorgeous. there is a chocolate shop inside, the name eludes me. the whiskey/coffee piece of chocolate i had was out of this world. i came back for another one.
the fremont experience is not too terribly impressive before dark, so i suggest you visit for the light show, after 7pm. you can still find one and two deck blackjack in downtown. not on the strip. so, if you want to have a better chance at bringing some cash back, downtown might be a better option for playing. surprisignly, bellagio has a $5 table. (one ;) most others on the strip don’t, or if they do, only during the day or at graveyard (after 4am).
i saw the “crazy horse” show in paris. “la femme”, i heard is an exact copy, in vegas. if that’s true, i highly recommend it.
if girls in feathers is your thing – “jubilee” is not bad. don’t waste money on tickets upfront. the theatre is very small, you’ll see well anywhere you sit, and save some money for the casino later. ;)
