Best Time to Visit

Best Time to Visit

Las Vegas is not only known for its casinos and its entertainment but also as to its extremely hot weather. The best time to visit the city is in autumn, from September to November, and in spring, from March to May, when the temperatures are around 20-25 degrees. During the winter time, the amount of tourists is great, especially during the holidays, so do try to plan a mid-week trip, as both the plane tickets and hotel prices are significantly lower in comparison to the weekend.

Public Transport

Public Transport

Sidewalks are always packed, during both day and night but the well-lit streets and elevated crossovers make it safe and easy to traverse the busy Las Vegas Boulevard. The Strip is divided into three sections, and if you want to visit another casino in the same area, walking is certainly the best option. If you wish to navigate from the South Strip to the North Strip, however, you will need to take a taxi, private car or bus. RTC Buses is run by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC). The Bonneville Transit Center is the transfer point for many routes; while most routes cost around $2 or $1, you can also buy a 24-hours pass for $8. Launched July 2004, the Monorail has stations at Sahara’s, Las Vegas Hilton, Harrah's/Imperial Palace, Bally’s, Paris and the MGM Grand. The first station of the Monorail is the SLS station, where also tickets can be purchased.

Player’s Cards

Player’s Cards

Every casino will offer a Player's Card, that can be purchased free of charge after a short application of about 5 minutes, but you will need a drivers’ license or another form of identification. Every time you play a slot machine, do insert the card into the appropriate slot so that it will track the amount of play: the longer you play, the more credits you will receive. You can also get credit on your card for table games, so do simply hand the card to the dealers, and they will add credits depending on the amount of your play. The credits accumulate, and they can be used for small gifts, free meals and even free nights at a hotel – even penny slots gather quite a few credits. Some cards cover multiple casinos, and you can use it at any venue listed on the card. Do not worry about loosing your card, as all the information are transferred to computers, and the staff will gladly issue you a new card at no charge.

Buying half-price show tickets

Buying half-price show tickets

Tix4tonight sells same-day show tickets for half price, and one of its largest establishments is located at the giant Coca Cola Bottle on the Las Vegas Strip, next to MGM Grand. The shops accept both credit cards and cash, and all purchases must be made in person, as phone orders are not accepted. The chances of finding headlining performers, such as Bette Midler or Elton John, are not very good, but there are many terrific shows that may be available, such as Cirque du Soleil and the Blue Man Group.
