I went to Vegas for the 1st time over Thanksgiving of 2015. My first advice is to NEVER pay full price for ANYTHING. Grab a coupon book from a hotel and use buy 1, get one drink cards. At Casino Royale by the Flamingo, there are $1 Michelob beer that are easy to grab an go. Go to http://www.tix4tonight.com/ for great show deals, dinning deals and exhibits entries half off. We saw Beatles Love at The Mirage. Highly recommended! I would say Penn&Teller Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino is a must-see! The Rock of Ages at The Venetian is cheesy but entertaining. The old downtown Fremont Street Experience is cool for a day visit We took a cab there it was about $20 each way. There are 2 breweries there you can stop at- Banger Brewing and Chicago Brewing Co. The The Mob Museum was very interesting too. There are a lot more cheap eats and drinks in the Fremont area. As for bars/ restaurants try Double Barrel Roadhouse at Monte Carlo for happy hour cocktails, 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque for bourbon and cigars, Commonwealth speakeasy for drinks, Wicked Spoon for breakfast, Guy Fieri's Vegas Kitchen & Bar for dinner. I never had a bad meal in Vegas. Its easy to spend a day just going in and out of the hotels, each hotel has something "free" to see, walk by.

Most casinos will offer you a free hotel room if you play. you will get comp for it. the taxi ride to the strip will cost you a fortune. Try the 48 hour buffet pass from ceasars group. if you stay on Sunday go to Sterling brunch buffet at Bally's Las Vegas Hotel & Casino all you can eat lobster.

I am not sure which direction you are from the Strip. Expect an expensive cab ride and it is mandatory to tip everywhere. If you stay on the Strip after baggage claim go to where it says "Shuttle" walk up to any window and pay for the shuttle. Grab the card so you can call ahead for return pickup and schedule that. On the return, take any shuttle that goes back to the airport. Remember the location.

Good evening, Harold!

My fiancée and I went to Vegas from July 15-18, 2015 using AA frequent flyer miles.  It was my second trip to Vegas and her first.  Your question is hard to answer without knowing his likes and dislikes.  We saw Cirque du Soleil "O" at the Bellagio; and Terry Fator (ventriloquist) and Cirque du Soleil "The Beatles 'One'", both at The Mirage  All three shows are excellent.

There are over 300 restaurants in Las Vegas serving all kinds of food.  We liked the Fulton Street Food Hall at Harrah's Las Vegas.  They serve good breakfasts; also Hash House A Go Go at The Quad Resort & Casino (now The LINQ).  We think Ruth's Chris Steak House is a gastronomic orgasm waiting to happen, if you want a real splurge.

For a panoramic view of the Vegas Strip, don't miss High Roller, located at The LINQ, which for $35.00/pp takes you 500 feet (about 150 meters) above the ground.  If he likes thrills, there's The Roller Coaster at New York New York Hotel & Casino and the rides at the top of Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower.  Then there are the "only in Vegas" attractions such as The Mob Museum, Fremont Street Experience, and Neon Museum.

Hope this helps!

Jim Townsend
