What to do.

Hi Everyone, we are stopping in Vegas for two nights on the way to a Hawaian Cruise. Can anyone suggest the best way to spend the two days and nights I.E. day trips or night-time shows. Would it be best to just walk the Strip, visit the casinos? Meals, is it best to eat in our hotel (Luxor) or are restaurants more economical. As you can tell we are LV virgins and any tips on how to spend our time there would be much appreciated.

I think you have it right. Walk the strip, stop into the various hotels and check things out. You'll never see it all in such a short time, but you'll certainly stumble across something that interests you. Same with the food. There are so many places to eat at every budget level. Have fun exploring!

I think it would help if you say a little about what you are interested in. Clubs? Shopping? Gambling? Sports? Site seeing? People watching? Spa?

If it was me, it would be walking the strip and all that goes with it. As for eating, there are so many great places to eat that are not in the Luxor.

I suggest a walking casino hop along Las Vegas Boulevard. It is so much fun. You will find many eateries along the way. I stayed at Luxor earlier this year. Can't recall any restaurant that interested me, but lots and lots of options on The Strip.

On foot, explore some of the nearby casino/hotel complexes. Mandalay Bay, MGM are close by. ExCalibur connects by tram to Luxor and Mandalay Bay, and NYNY is across Tropicana Blvd.

The Luxor does have the Titanic Exhibit, well-reviewed here and elsewhere. There are myriad places to dine within an easy walk- get out and explore. If you get north to Monte Carlo, there is another free tram to use for there , City Center and Bellagio.

check this route map for free trams, and the monorail (fee charged)

It's so overwhelming. I suggest having a few things that you really want to do, ie. ballagio fountains, ballagio conservatory, caesar's forum shops, walking through the venetian...then you can plan to stop and eat, gamble drink along the way. For example, if you know you want to see the fountain shop and the conservatory, stop at Olives and have an early dinner on the patio, then stroll through the Forum shops and the casino at Caesar's. There is so much to see, you won't make it to everything. Just hit the highlights.
