You should begin your plan to visit with a great map resource, this page has every map you could need.  What to eat ? Our best restaurants ..  and where to stay?  Obvious concerns!

Well don't fear Las Vegas caters to everyone, including those on a budget.  If you are visiting relatives, I recommend staying at a locals place off of the strip such as a Station Casino at or a Cannery at

If you plan to visit for a longer period of time, allow us to recommend LV Extended Stay Hotels at 

Carry Snacks and bottled water with you.  It can get pricey for those high demand items once you are there.  You can however pretty much stick a few quarters in a machine and get free drinks ... but without control that could lead to 10 bucks for a water.

It is hot usually about 294 days per year! What is the weather in Las Vegas Now?  Get the current temperature and weather here right now.

If you are at a slot machine then the casinos will serve you drinks, so don't forget to tip your waitress or you may not see them very often, they don't make a lot per hour and depend mostly on their hustle tip income.
