#1 Tip for Vegas ???

You are only allowed to give a person one piece of advice for Vegas. What is it? A show you must see, a bar you must visit, a way to save money, something you must do etc.

If you were giving a Vegas virgin one tip for whilst in Vegas, What would it be.

Don't come with expectations of hitting the "Big Jackpot" with scared money (money for bills, living expenses, etc.). Gamble only with money you can afford to lose. Heed the advise of other posters on this thread, they should know. Have fun, and drink lots of booze!

Plan how much money to take. Then bring twice as much.

Who wears uncomfortable shoes? -- My wife at times, what's comfortable for sitting at the bar would definitely be uncomfortable for 3 hours walking on the strip.

Kind of like #3. Never buy a new pair of shoes and start wearing them in Vegas. Make sure they are broken in. You feet will thank me.

Bonus tip - No need to respond to CD pushers, escort card slappers and now fake friendship monks. They approached me so no need to be friendly and respond. I just ignore them now.

Since proper footwear has been covered I’ll say: hydrate. It’s dry to start with then add heat, walking a ton and usually consistent alcohol intake and you can dehydrate easily.

Plan one thing to do every day, no more, and don't be disappointed if you don't hit all your "to do's."

Don't cheap out on the room. Having a comfortable bed, a large shower with good water pressure, and cold AC makes life so much better.
