Anyone have any suggestions for a group of ladies meeting in Las Vegas around the end of February? Travel tips, places to stay, eat, visit, tour bus trips around the area....any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

RE: Las Vegas

I lived in Las Vegas for about a year. I'm actually live in Georgia now. Las Vegas is a great place for a get together. There's a lot of new hotels and a lot of sight seeing and gambling to do. If you're looking for an inexpensive place to stay at night, try the Westward Ho. They have a motel in the back of the casino. It will be a lot cheaper than a lot of the bigger hotels. Also, you won't be spending any time in you hotel except to sleep for a few hours anyways. It is clean and safe too! Don't worry. It's close enough to walk to alot of the big casinos or you can take a bus, either or. If you like a big fancy hotel/casino - try Treasure Island (Pirate theme), MGM (Wizard of Oz), Mirage (tropical),Caesar's Palace (Rome). It's better to stay in the newer part of town, like the above mentioned, I think. There's some nice casions in the old part of town, but you can take a bus down there. Hope this helps.

I took a vacation to Las Vegas this last summer to visit my old stomping grounds. I went through a travel agency. I went on what the called a fun jet vacation package. It included roundtrip airfare and hotel accommidations for 3 nights and 4 days (from Atlanta) for $320.00. What a deal.

RE: Las Vegas

We just returned from Vegas on Sunday evening. We were married there 2 years ago. Whatever you do, do NOT reserve your hotel as a part of a air/hotel package. Just purchase the air, and look on the net and call around for hotel, and reserve the hotel on your own. You will get a much better deal. Try www.lasvegas24hours.com.

Treasure Island is awesome!! Thats where we stay when we go. I do NOT recommend staying at the Westward Ho. Last I was in the motel/hotel rooms there, it was a dump.

I recommend staying on the south (newer) end of the strip. Anywhere from Treasure Island to Bellagio. There is so much more to do there.

I also recommend taking taxis, rather than renting a car. Traffic in Vegas is AWEFUL, taxi drivers deserve big tips. There are (literally), I think, thousands of taxis in Vegas. You never have to wait for one. Just walk out the front entrance of any hotel, and they are there waiting for you. We took a taxi from the Airport to the hotel and back. And had a taxi bring us downtown and back one night. Sure beats driving in Vegas!!

Things to do:
1-The Star Trek Experience at the Hilton, The Race for Atlantis at Ceasars (buy the combo ticket for these at the Hilton, and you will save $8 per person.)

2-Madame Tussaud's at the Venetion-Wax sculptures of famous people. Admission is $13.50 per person and well worth it!! Don't forget your camera.

3-Fremont Street Experience-Down town--(free) -Every hour beginning at dark. Only last a few minutes but is a very interesting show. Different one each hour.

4-Pirate battle at Treasure Island (free)-every 90 minutes beginning at 4 pm-FYI-It will be cancelled if windy. Get there at least 20 minutes early to get a good spot. If you stay at treasure island, you can request a room overlooking the pirate battle. Or a room overlooking the strip has a FABULOUS view at night.

5-The buffet at the RIO. WOW!!!

6-We went to see Siegfried and Roy at the Mirage on Friday night. GREAT show, well worth $100 per person. I recommend that you request a booth seat, which will seat 4 people. If you end up at a table, the tables seat 6, so if there is only 2 of you, you will end up sitting with people you don't know, and if they have big hair, it doesn't work. A table will work if there are 6 of you tho.

If I can think of any more, I will leave another post. Hope you have a great Las Vegas Vacation and GOOD LUCK!!!!
