 o
Las Vegas -- where to stay, what to do

We're going to Las Vegas for a few days in September to visit family members. We'll be on our own for some of the time.

Can anyone suggest a great place to stay that's not too expensive, and things to do instead of gambling?

Thanks,
Jen

One night be sure and watch the fountain show at the Bellagio. Fantastic and free. You just stand on the sidewalk and watch....I think it is only in the evening.

Thank you. I would not have thought of that.

There is so much to do in Vegas without gambling. We were there in May & just walking thru all the casinos & seeing their themes takes up lots of time. Most of the casinos have some sort of free entertainment too. Some we saw were a motown show, a circus act, Rio has a parade with the carninal theme, and Ceasar's has the moving statue show. Lots of very neat shops to window shop too. The downtown area has a super light show & lots of free entertainment too. Just bring good walking shoes! Hope you have fun!

We don't gamble much at all when we go to Vegas, mostly sight see and EAT. The buffets are so good. There are the fish tanks at El Mirage and the volcano eruption at night, the pirate show at Treasure Island, the Rio carnivale parade, the Freemont light show, shopping at Caesar's Palace with a little show there, live entertainment and dancing at NYNY....all free. Nominal cost things to do: Roller coaster at NYNY and Stratosphere, Circus Circus has carnival games and shows, tasting Cokes from around the world at the coke shop, take a gondola ride at the Parisian. Just looking at all the casinos is fun, bring a camera and some walking shoes that's for sure. Where to stay, I've only stayed at the Luxor and Excalibur, both were about $59 a night I think. If you stay during the week, most places are cheaper.
