HI Jds, there was someone on here recently who has done it twice and loved it. Do a search for 'Las Vegas' in the little search box above your post.

If you need more info click on her name and look for the Send a Message link. Usually on the left but it's been floating around lately.

Solo frmale there is not unusual. I would also go to the Las Vegas forum. Put those words into the large search box at the top right of the page and click on the link that comes up. Post there and do a search for trip reports or questions like yours by putting Solo female into the little search box at the top of the threads.

Getting nervous as well as excited is normal. As soon as you are on your way you will realise that it's all straightforward, like home but more fun.

I've been to Vegas twice as a solo female. In March, the weather will generally be warm although once when I was there in mid-March it was cooler (50s Farenheit) so bring a light jacket. The most important thing to pack for Vegas is comfortable shoes. You will walk a lot as the casinos are big and things are much farther apart than they look.

If this is your 1st trip to Vegas, definitely stay on the Strip as that's where you will want to spend most of your time. You will find hotels in a wide wariety of price ranges. I love Red Rock canyon for hiking but don't do that alone although if you have a car there is a loop you can drive around the park that is very pretty. A tour to Hoover Dam is another thing I would recommend if you are interested in getting away from the casinos for a while. I also did one of the plane/helicopter/ground tours to the Grand Canyon. It was amazing, even though I had visted the Grand Canyon before it was really a different perspective from the air.

Mainly in Vegas, follow the same rules you would follow in any big city. Don't accept drinks from strangers for instance. I stayed at the Palazzo on my last trip and I really appreciated that they checked room keys as you went to the elevators. Late at night, there was also plenty to do so I didn't wander the Strip after midnight. If you go to downtown Vegas, stay near the Fremont Street Canopy, and especially don't venture north of downtown or too far east (past the El Cortez starts to get a little dicey). Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions.

Las Vegas solo is really great.

If you go to the Vegas forum :

tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g45963-i10-Las_Veg…

There are plenty of people relating their experience as solo travellers in Vegas.

I agree it's better to stay on the Strip as you could walk from one casino to another casino (even if you don't gamble you must visit some of the main casino hotels: Bellagio, Cosmopolitan, Paris, Caesar's, Venetian, Wynn, ect...). If you have a car there are some nice hotels not too far from the Strip, such as the Hard Rock Hotel or Rumor Hotel (I know both of them).

I LOVE VEGAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok, i've been 3 times now, but still... i got plenty to say

first of all, have you thought of renting a car?

solo travelling... hoover dam, lake mead, grand canyon...

there are excursions and i do have links

alllasvegastours.com/air-helicopter/…

also coupons

http://www.vegas4locals.com/coupons.html

sign up to smarter vegas...its free but you get access to some amazing discounts

http://www.smartervegas.com/

shows...

cirdue de soliel, higly recommend O, also marc savard hyppnosis...

shooping, YOU MUST!!!!! do nother premium outlet, sign up to the website one month before flying and you get a coupon book to be used withen 28 days... your friends will be jealous, they have a michael korrs and coach outlet nearly 40% cheaper than uk even if its just a normal outlet (depending on when you go they may have some clearance sale making it like 73% cheaper than uk prices)

dinging, hot n juicy in china town, stripburger far right of fashion mall building on the front

you must see fronmont street in the evening although its not the same as it was when i first went... its not as busy

avoid sugar factory, absolute tourist trap, unless its improved... i went when it only opened 1 month and when we complained the managers excuse was we only just opened one month... no excuse

also another huge saving is restaurant.com ( would help if you have a paypal account and use your hotel as your US address)

vegas itself is very safe

however when i was there this year, it was that infamous shooting on the strip that was closed off for a few hours

this year i was there first week in march, warmer than uk. so to us its light clothing but you do need somethign for the evenings as it can get cold...however with the outlets only a short bus ride away you can buy clothes there!!

also another useful link

www.lasvegas-how-to.com/las-vegas-deuce.php

if you like i am more than happy to share my experience/ questions with you via PM

PS i got married in vegas as well

And your wife doesn't mind you suggesting a meet up over the internet with an unknown single woman ?

Why would she want to hang about with a married man?
