Okay Brie I have a couple of tips for you. Once you find out your dates I will be able to look more detailed for you.

1.Fly! Driving around vegas is MISERABLE. The traffic, streets, people, everything about it is miserable. It costs to park pretty much everywhere, and that is if you can even find a spot. Plus the view flying in is AMAZING.

2. Don't waste money on a rental car. To get from the airport to a hotel on the strip costs about $20 with one person. If you can fit a few and split it, you will end up saving money. Like I said, you will drive yourself insane trying to drive there, plus you will just waste money.

3. Stay on the strip. You can walk pretty much everywhere, they have overpasses and escalators and all kinds of things that even though it can be a couple walking up and down the strip, when you are close and local you can stop several places, plus then you can see everything. One of the best things is walking up and down the strip and watching the street preformers.

4. Always carry a ltitle cash, but not alot at a time, and not big bills. I carried $1's so that I could tip the street preformers that I wanted pictures with. They are all really picky though about being tipped, but don't carry big bills.

5. If you can, put an extra credit card (one you don't plan on using) on file at the hotel. They usually charge you double what your room costs, as a "deposit" that you will get back when you check out. Be prepared to not have that money!

6. Stock up at walgreens and there is a liquor store on the strip for alcohol. Make your own drinks, and eat your own food. Maybe even pack a suitcase full of just food. Eating out is literally at least $15 a meal for a simple meal, and drinks are around $15-$20 each. Now one hint, you can carry your drinks on the street! So you can make drinks, and carry them around. You just might reach some issues going into certain casinos and carrying your drink, but you can walk and drink. Try to avoid meals and drinks when you are out! I bought one round when I was the maid of honor at the Bellagio for dinner for me, my cousin, her husband, his two brothers and their mom and dad. The tab was $180. Yea, avoid that.

7. If you gamble, you get free drinks. Bet a penny, get a drink. Don't be shy, wave down the waitresses and tip well.

7. As far as the nightclubs go, every hotel has one, at least. The trick is getting a wristband to get in. Alot of them will have HUGE covers, like at least $20 per person, plus drinks. If you go walking through the hotels by the club doors usually there will be a guy there after 3pm. If you go there, go up to them and ask the cover charge, the dress code and what time to line up. Usually, they will offer wristbands for you then and there. THey hand out a certain amount before they open so that the club will always have people in it and look full.

8. With the clubs... Always ask the specials. With the wristbands they will tell you usually that they will give you no cover, or a free drink, but never both. Most clubs have a drink minimum, so make sure you figure out that before you go in!

9. Take extra shoes. Even if you throw them in your purse, take some flip flops and then change them out when you get there. Like I said, you may end up walking miles up and down the strip, and you wont even notice it at that time because you are just taking everything in. The next day though, you will be miserable and you don't want to have sore feet the whole time.

11. If you or any of your friends smoke, stock up before you get there. You will pay around $11 a pack there, however I have heard that if you order them from the coctail waitresses they are free.

10. Plan on having a day or two to rest when you get home. You wont sleep, you wont eat healthy, you will drink too much, you will be grouchy, probably hungover for at least a day, and sore.

Let me know about hotels, attractions, prices. I can get you a good deal like I said when you know the dates you are looking at

Thanks! I am going to write this stuff down lol. I am going with a huge group of friends. So far 6 of us are for sure going, but theres at least 10 or 12 so far that we plan on inviting. We also are for sure flying there, because we are in Canada and driving would take forever LOL. Plus I want to fly again. Are there sweet clubs outside of the hotels? Because we want to go to a sweet club hahaha. Thanks again

There are tons of amazing clubs when you are walking up and down the strip. There is one that is totally your scene, I will have to ask Jon what the name of it is! How many of you plan on sharing a room, or need sperate rooms for sure?

Okay, I will look around for you! Obviously the more that you put in a room you would save money! Do you know the dates yet?

I know that they all want to go in May

I guess I am leaving that part up to them to book, pick out and stuff because they all work and it has to go around their work schedules
