I am going to buy a little trip for my step-son and his girlfriend to go to Vegas for a few days. I have been there a few times but have drove through and stayed one night here and there. It has been overwhelming the little bit that I was there so I really don't know too much.
Going to need flights (Calgary to Vegas) & hotel. Was looking on Expedia and can do some for around $1100 for 4 nights at a reasonable place to stay. They don't need top notch accommodations but not as bad as Circus Circus please.
I also wondered if I can purchase vouchers that give them access to a hotel's buffet/restaurant for the entire time they are staying there??
Some hotels, like the Orleans, are off of the strip but provide free shuttle down there. Is staying on the strip or off the strip that much of an inconvenience??
They are 20-something kids who will walk and see everything they can from morning till night.
I have agreed to pay for hotel, flight and meals. Keeping it to hopefully not much more than $1200 but can go up a bit.
I am hoping there are some people on this board who have that knowledge of Vegas to know how to put a good trip together for cheaper.
I also want to have a list of free stuff for them to do/see. If they chose to pay for shows/attractions over and above that would be up to them to pay for it.
I recall once seeing an offer that the Stratosphere room package offering unlimited access to the rides as well. That would be something I would be interested in.
So, in summary, I would like to purchase Flights, hotel with attraction package for 4 nights, and meal vouchers all for between $1000-$1500 if that would even be possible. Anyone have any ideas or advice to guide me in my research, I would be grateful. Thank you.
