First time visitor with our party - advice please

Hi. We have been to Las Vegas once before, many years ago and really loved it. We are visiting again on the 1st October this year with friends who have not been before. We only have 3 full days in Vegas so doing lots of research. Does anyone know. Is there a list of any kind of attractions at each casino. I can only think of going onto each and every casino website to help us pick out the things we want to see and obviously this will be very time-consuming. Any other suggestions to help would be very much appreciated. Many thanks.

Their website has some information, but see if you can get a copy of American Casino Guide: americancasinoguide.com/casinos-by-city/las-…

Do as much research here as you can before you go. Check the frequently asked questions section at top right and use the search function here. Then you can ask more specific questions here. You will also learn a lot by just walking the strip up and down and visiting each hotel and casino. You can pretty much do a quick walk-through and determine whether its worth spending any more time there. have fun

Thanks very much for your reply. Ii agree with your comment about just walking in and through Casinos but we have an added problem in that one of our party is slightly disabled and walking can be difficult. This is why it would be beneficial to have an idea before we go. I assume the best way of travelling up and down the Strip is by taxi.

Buy a Rough Guide to Vegas - I swear by RGs whichever country I'm visiting.

If you're friend has difficulty walking then the taxi is the best way to go. Otherwise the monorail is easy to get on and off. Its fast and takes you from the Harrahs stop to the MGM in 6mins. It takes about 9mins to get from the monorail to the front of MGM,and that includes a stop at the restroom. This last trip,I used the monorail a lot and now have a different perspective about it. The walk to the monorail from the strip is at most,9mins.(I actually timed a few different stops) so it is not much time at all and not inconvenient from a time standpoint. good luck

Renting a mobility scooter in Vegas is cheap and easy. We have rented from 702scooters.com/las-vegas-scooters-rentals.h…

and were very happy with their service. You can also rent at some hotel valet desks.

I agree the monorail is a great way to get around the east side of las vegas blvd. I personally enjoy walking through the casinos and see what is going on.

Funny thought...the library has those travel books. Get one on Las Vegas. There are many about Las Vegas. Very interesting . They list everything.

Could be interesting.
