Las Vegas Things to Do

  • Fremont Street Experience, Las Vegas

    Fremont Street Experience

    4 out of 5 stars

    I went here twice when I was staying in Vegas, I found it so much better then the main vegas strip. The drinks are cheaper, the pubs had more "alternative" music playing. Two pubs had a cover band playing 90's songs. There's a lot of lights and it looks really old school, they even had an 80's tribute band playing in the street, it was great! I...

    Treasure Island Hotel - Casino

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    I heard they were going to close this show and I guess they have. Kind of sad and end of an erra. We have been in this casino several times and seem to have some pretty good luck when we did gamble. The Free live performance in front of the casino was pretty cool with huge live props such as a pirate ship that was very enjoyable. Yet, I guess...

    For Adults Only

    I collect stamps, coins and postcards. In Las Vegas I almost decided to start a new collection - girl's cards. Each minute, in each corner, discreetly, a guy slided to my hand a card with a beautiful woman as naked as allowed, with friendly suggestions. In a couple of nights, with full pockets, I only received five repetitions - 4 blonds and one...

    Hundreds of people with their noses pointing up, and the wonderful technology serving money. From time to time, a sort of movies flows in the several hundred meters long roof, providing two shows: the show itself and the animation under it. Not to be missed... it's free!

    When I play poker, I always tip the dealer $1 if I win. $2 if it's a huge pot. They work a very monotonous job. And if you believe in luck, you don't want to mess it up! Also as a side note, drinks are free at some casinos. Tip the waitress too. They have tough jobs as well.

    Sugar Factory at 3655 Las Vegas blvd will not serve you a glass of tap water. If you want water, you have to buy a 12oz. Bottle for $2.00. Also they charge a consession fee (cnf) of 3.5% of the bill. Bring your own water! I walk around with a bottle of water anyway. Nothing you can do about the cnf.

    Be sure to sign up for comp cards at any casino chain that you visit. In the past, I have gotten free t-shirts just for signing up. Also some offer free play deals. The free drinks! Although it seems that free drinks aren't as easy to score as they use to be. Better luck can be had in the downtown area.
