Avoid Peak Times and Major Holidays

 

The city has numerous hotels to serve the millions of visitors who troop into the city every year. However, it is important to take note of certain holidays as they are the busiest for the city and accommodation prices are likely to be quite high. Avoid going to the city on spring break or when there is a major sporting event such as the NCAA Basketball’s Final Four weekend. Many other national events and conventions are held in the city, take note and avoid visiting during those times.

 

Choose the Right Hotel for Your Budget

 

Even though the city has often been associated with opulence and extravagant spending, you can always find a range of hotels that fit your budget. The most luxurious hotels like the Sky Loft at MGM Grand are expensive with accommodation going for about $1,000 a night or more. You can get cheaper accommodation for about $50 at hotels like the Flamingo, which is fine if you are looking for a clean place to sleep, shower and change clothes.

There are also moderately priced hotels that have comparable amenities and service to luxurious hotels in the city. Many of them have deals on drinks and affordable food options. Some hotels are pet-friendly and have spa services. Before you book a hotel, make sure it’s on the strip and choose a location that will make it easy to visit sites and attraction in the city, without spending too much on transportation. Take a Break Travel can help you get the best deals.

 

Vary Your Activities

 

There are many forms of entertainment to enjoy while you are in Sin City. Unfortunately, many first time visitors only end up spending most of their time in Casinos. There are many shows you can enjoy while in Vegas, at a theater or within the hotel.
