Questions for September trip

Planning a trip to Vegas in September. Flying in from the east coast the Sunday before Labor Day and planning on three nights. Is that enough if gambling is not a priority?? My husband has been before, but I have not.


Love show at the Mirage on Monday night; How far in advance to buy tickets??

The Fab Four at the Aladdin on Tuesday night

The Hard Rock café, (my son collects T-shirts)

The Revolution bar at Mirage

Mac King - afternoons at Harrah's

Bellagio Fountains

The Parade in the Sky at the Rio

Statues at Caesar’s Palace

Freemont Street Experience

Just spend time walking down the strip

We do not plan to rent a car. How do we best get to the hotel??

I hate to feel rushed. If you can swing it, why not stay for four nights. Especially after flying in from the other coast, I think I would go with a four nighter..... Enjoy :) I'll be there in 19 days....but who's counting?

3 nights is probably enough to do the things that you said, but remember, no matter how detailed you plan your trip, you will end up doing other stuff in between.

Do not spend too much time in your room, get up early and leave the room, and don't come back until you dead tired (in my case it is usually 4 AM)

You might also add Wynn, Paris, Venetian, Mirage and Bellagio to your list.

Go inside the casinos and walk around for an hour or two, have a cup of coffee or something.

How to get around? Walk some and take a cab its the fastest way (don't take the buss, you don't have the luxury of wasting time)

Right after Labor day you can get some of the cehapest hotel rates. So you might want to think about adding a fourth night to your trip if you can get it for not a lot of money. Better yet, if you can fly in on Monday and not be there for the Sunday night of Labor Day weekend, you might just save enough to pay for that extra night.

You could do all the things you've listed in three days, but it would be a challenge.

Take a cab from the airport to your hotel. The cab line at the airport can be long but it moves surprisingly quickly.

I w ould add a fourth night if possible. It is still hot in September and you probably would like to spend some time at a pool. I wouldn't make a special trip to the Rio for the Parade- I don't think it is all the good.
