What I would do after dozens of trips to Vegas is probably not that relevant to your situation. Is it your first time in Vegas? Where are you staying?

Assuming yes and the Strip, I wouldn't make any definite plans. Just explore the area around your hotel and the other properties close by getting a feel for the sensory overload that will very likely overwhelm you! As you'll presumably have had a long flight from the UK, pace yourselves and don't try to cram too much in.

Have a great trip!

Totally agree with Blagger. Just stay close to home, walk around just a bit. Find a good restaurant close by, gamble or play the slots. You'll probably have jet lag. It really is sensory overload the first time.

Thanks. My wife & I have been once before, our friends have never been. We are staying at The Mirage so fairly central. Can't wait to show them what Vegas has in store for them !!!

We went in May. Do not book anything the first night just explore your hotel. The 8 hour time difference is a killer, we all agreed to stay awake as long as possible to get in sync with local time, had to give in at 8.30 pm as it was 4.30am our time. I am a night person at home and do not go to bed until the early hours. But with travelling and the time difference it will hit all of a sudden. Hope this helps.

Whenever possible we don't schedule anything for the first day/night. We just relax and adjust to being on vacation and in Las Vegas. Which means we usually just dine somewhere in our hotel.

But Blagger is right, in that isn't what you will want to do. You want to walk out the door and be faced with the difficult decision of whether to turn right or left. Then you want to walk around and stare in wonder. If you find something that piques your interest, walk in and check it out. Your first night should be spent enjoying the wonder of Las Vegas.

I agree with others. Explore your hotel. Check out some of the others that are nearby such as Venetian, Wynn and Caesar's. Make reservations for a nice dinner. Maybe walk the Strip after dinner. A bit of gambling. Whatever crosses your mind. Look at the Mirage Volcano and the Bellagio Fountains. Just let things flow. You will be in Vegas.

I'm a big fan of the Venetian and love the dining choices. Great Italian and Steakhouse restaurants. Lots of choices.

I find that I don't want a big or formal meal after a long day travelling , I usually just go get a good burger and a few beers and plan nothing afterwards ,I like Stripburger, then just wander around the casinos having a few bets and drinks , the buzz from the casino helps keep me going , I always do my shopping the following morning as I will be up early anyway and before I spend all my funds.

Such good advice here! Blagger right on again, Ktinca too! Just exploring that first night after a long journey is enough. Believe it.
