Vegas, Here We Come!!!.......

Hello Ya'll,
You've got some visitors from VA and OK coming on Sunday and staying through Wednesday morning. My wife and I are coming in from Tulsa, OK. And we're meeting a dear married couple from VA out there. We'll be staying at the Fairfield Resort, a couple blocks off the strip. It'll be my wife and I's first visit to Vegas. We can't wait. We plan to catch a couple shows, walk the strip, check out some casinos(minimal betting), check out hoover dam, and people watch.

I've got some basic questions:
Is smoking (cigars) allowed on the sidewalks and in casinos?
If a bottle of Bacardi Rum costs $13 in Tulsa, what would it cost in Vegas? (I was tempted to bring some supplies.)
What are some does and don'ts?
What's the weather gonna be like from April 15th(my b'day ) thru the 18th?
What's good attire for walking the strip and bouncing in and out of casinos/attractions?

I'm sure i'll have more questions, but that's all for now.

Thanks,

You cant smoke in any resturants or bars but smoking in casinos and outdoors is still allowed it has been in the 80's for the highs and probably sixties for the lows.

What's the weather gonna be like from April 15th(my b'day ) thru the 18th? My B-day is the 14th, cool. 80-90 high, 60-70 low
What's good attire for walking the strip and bouncing in and out of casinos/attractions? Shorts and t-shirt (day), Pants and short-sleaved shirt (night).

I'm sure i'll have more questions, but that's all for now.

Thanks,

The Fastion Show mall, and Ceasers are great places to poeple watch. Try to hit the Vienece casino, Good mexican food,Jimmy Buffet style. Blue Man Group, and House of Blues, Theres always something going on. Bacardi is about $18 a bottle at the liquor stores.

Talking

As far as attire, wear what you want. It is Vegas and it is your vacation. Just bring something nice for dinner and a show. Vegas loves your money not your clothes. No need to bring a bottle, free drinks 24/7. Just hang out and be smart. You can smoke in the bars just as long as they don't serve food. Some stupid new law. As far as the sidewalk, smoke'em if you got'em.
The temps are nice and a little breezy, which makes for some great people watching. I agree that the fashion show mall is great for that. Don't take taxis unless you need to, use the bus or get some excercise, they are freakin' expensive.

Have fun, after all, it is Vegas Baby!!!!!

Whew. That was a neat experience. We did everything from trying a 99 cent shrimp cocktail, to gambling, people watching, legitimate massages, to an expensive high class dinner at the Stratosphere. We even got to take the Hoover Dam tour. What a neat trip. I can't beleive how fancy and luxurious so many of those casinos/hotels are. We got to see the old neon cowboy and the giant led tv screen on Freemont St. The raw oysters and micro brewery were great also. I can't remember the name of the steak house/microbrewery. I think we lost more money on cab fare and food than we did on gambling. FYI, if you are prone to motion sickness in the back seat of a car, then i'd highly recommend taking a dramamine before having dinner in the rotating restaurant; the Stratosphere. I was sick as a dog, but was able to not toss my cookies. I gotta say Roulette was the most fun. Craps was very complicated and my 6 or 8 never showed up. Sheesh; so much for odds on that one. Black jack was neat but a very very fast way to throw your money away. The one thing we didn't care for is the people passing out the strip club cards and literally trashing the streets of Las Vegas. You couldn't take 3 steps on some sidewalks without walkin all over that garbage on the ground. Kinda disheartening to see them trash the streets like that. We stayed at the Fairfield Grand Resort/Wyndam. That place was very nice and quite on the adults only side. For anybody else goin out to visit, and you don't want to do a lot of walkin, i'd recommend renting a car for the trip. It is convenient and less expensive to just have the valet at the hotel/casinos park your car and bring it to you when you're ready to leave. I think we got treated fairly by all but maybe one cabbie. The one cabbie brought us back from Freemont St. to the M&M factory but it looked like he took the long interstate route. Though we're not sure if he did that to bypass the strip traffic at night, since the meter also runs when sitting at stop lights? A couple of the cabbies had good senses of humor and were helpful with what to see and where to go. One thing i'd recommend for the Casinos is to install smoke/air filters, or more of them. I can't stand the cigarette smoke(cigars and pipes dont bother me or my sinuses.) and the Bellagio was so cloudy i couldn't stay in there more than an hour one night. All in all, we had a good trip and maybe we'll make it back there again someday for more than 4 days.

No interstate was probably best.
