How to Visit Vegas on the Cheap
Las Vegas is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular places in the world, and is somewhere that should be experienced by everyone at least once.
The problem with visiting Las Vegas, however, is that life on the Strip can quickly become very expensive and those on a shoe-string budget can suffer.
Bridget Gleeson of LonelyPlanet.com has written a piece about visiting Sin City – the land of high-rollers – on a low-roller’s budget.
In this piece Bridget talks about where to stay, where to go clubbing, where to go for ‘happy hour’, how to get cheap theater tickets and more.
When it comes to finding cheap food and drink, for example, Bridget recommends taking advantage of generous happy hour specials at many of the resorts’ bars and restaurants:
“At ‘Red Square’ in Mandalay Bay, for example, where a headless Lenin statue marks your arrival and the main bar is a huge block of ice, killer vodka cocktails and Russian-inspired small plates for just $5 each during the ‘Five for Five’ happy hour (4-7pm Mon-Fri, 2-7pm Sat & Sun)”.
On a personal note, I found the hotel ‘Circus Circus’ to be ridiculously good value for money. I stayed in a room with two other friends, and we ended up paying just $8 a night each for the room!
