The Best of Las Vegas
What really is the Best of Las Vegas? It depends on what a person’s priorities are. Gambling must be at the top of the list; isn’t that what attracts the annual millions of visitors the most? I would classify entertainment second and sightseeing third. After that it depends on personal tastes and interests.
Besides perhaps a dozen mega casino/hotel resorts along the famous Las Vegas Strip, there must be a hundred other gambling establishments spread all over town. Many of them featuring show rooms, restaurants, swimming pools and other attractions to lure in not only tourists but local residents as well. The competition is fierce, that’s why it’s still possible to find bargains in Las Vegas.
Accommodation at Aria, Bellagio, MGM, Palazzo, Paris, Venetian, Vdara, Wynn, etc. might be $150 or $200 a night, but compared to same-class hotels elsewhere, those rates are still a bargain. If your idea of Best of Las Vegas hotels is below $100 a night, there are many of those to choose from. And if you don’t mind being surrounded by less luxury, you can even find places in the $25 to $50 range.
Depending on how big a gambler you are, it is possible to get your room charges, meals, drinks and even airfare “comped”. Hotel casinos will give you all of the above for free, if you spend enough money in their casino. You don’t have to lose it all, as long as you bet much and for extended periods of time.
