Vegas Strip Tues - Thurs Night... worth it?

I'm currently looking at deals to Vegas, some of the cheapest being from Tuesday to Thursday next week. This is my first trip to Vegas. Will I get a decent experience of the crowds and excitement on the strip as I would in the weekend?

It's always busy on the strip.

Welcome to TripAdvisor, N S.

Purplealiene is completely right. But it is also true that the crowds (and perhaps the excitement) will be greater on a weekend. How decent your experience will be we cannot say.

I guess to clarify, it's always so busy on the strip I avoid even going there unless I must, there are a few stores I frequent that force me to deal with strip crowds even during the week.

Even when it's cold and dark, they're out there.

It's generally busy on the strip no matter what day you go. But if you are into the mad & hoppin', extremely crowded scene, then weekends will be extremely busy than weekdays. It basically depends on your own preferences. Not everyone enjoys the hectic, crowded weekends. I myself, would never go on a Vegas vacation unless I include a weekend stay; because I personally love both the crowds & the experience!

I live in a nearby town so I visit Vegas to shop. Consider myself local-ish and am there a lot so I'm "over" the strip experience.

When I stay, it's usually because there's a nightclub I wanna go to.

In my view you can have a great time midweek and avoid paying weekend room rates that can be 3 x midweek rates.

Thank you for the welcome and responses. Looks like the trip will be from Monday to Wednesday night. Between Circus, LVH, and the Stratesphere, what would you recommend?

I think we will spend two nights on the strip and one down town. We aren't gamblers (yet!) but are generally up for a good time. Any recommendations will be appreciated.
