To many people, Vegas is a place of splurging and breaking free from responsibility and restrictions. It may seem counterintuitive to set rules for conquering the city — but doing so can save visitors money and relieve stress.


Las Vegas is Desert

Although the air conditioning may convince visitors otherwise, Sin City can top 115 degrees in the dead of the summer. The combination of staying up all night, drinking alcoholic beverages and transferring from the cool casino floors to the sweltering heat outside can take its toll on one’s body. It is imperative to stay hydrated, fed and well rested.


Travel Mid-Week

The weekends in Las Vegas are typically packed with numerous conventions and the heaviest flow of traffic to the city. For this reason, visitors can usually get better deals on hotels, shows and restaurants when visiting Monday through Thursday.


Don’t be Afraid of the Buffet

With all of the amazing high-end dining throughout the strip, travelers might be inclined to eat every meal like a king. It might be a good idea to check out one of the dozens of buffets around the city for a quick, cheap lunch, and save the money for the casino.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
