    VEGAS Baby!!!!!

    I'm tryin to go for spring break. I have friends in southern Cal and I'm thinking of flying into Vegas with my buddy, spending a few days there, then driving out to our friends and flying back home out of San Diego.

    So- a few things, I'm sure I wont need a car while in Vegas right? But then we'll rent one in Vegas and return it in SD. You can do that right? And I need to find a casino to stay in. I know there are a lot of good deals right now, how can I get one and make sure it's accessible?

    Any insight anyone can provide would be great! Never been to Vegas, and isn't there something weird about renting a car and age? We're 22 and 23 years old. Thanks!!!

    There is a lot of threads on here already about hotels in Vegas. I think most of them just suggest staying in any of the newer hotels on the strip & you should be fine with accessibility.

    I always thought to drive a rental car must be 25 whenever we've rented cars. I'm sure there must be some way around that. Curious to see what others say.

      You can rent a car in vegas an return it somewhere else. I am going in march and I got my tickets through southwestairlines vacation packages... I paid under a grand for 2 round trip tickets from the bay area to vegas and an accessible room at the mgm... It would be more for your flight being that your coming from the east coast.the flight to san diego is like an hour you might be better off just gettin a flight from vegas to sd then flying back to the east coast from san diego. Do you really want to be in a car for 5 hours?

        almost any hotel in vegas is accessible. i have a lot of info about that on my site.

        yes, you will be able to do all of that. just search the best deals and go. flight should be about $250 RT and hotel should be about $60-$100/night.

        best & cheapest way to get around vegas is the Deuce (public bus).

        have fun.

          Do you mean search the best deals on travel sites like priceline? I think sometimes they say they don't guarantee accessibility is that something to worry about?

            My friend said the Luxor and MGM are sort of at the end of the strip and everything is sort of far away- is this true?

              It´s not much of an issue if you use the Monorail system. Check it!

                never use the monorail. period. it's set behind all the hotels and a pain in the azz to get to. AND it's too expensive.

                MGM & Luxor are at the end of the strip but there are plenty of sights on that end. you don't have to go far. again, take the bus or hoof it.

                  Whenever I plan my LV trips, I always hit the hotel sites first. Often, the deals can´t be beat and you can reserve your room with a small down payment using your credit card right away. If you have to cancel your trip, there is often no fee charged as long as you honor the reservation conditions. Right now, hotel rates are cheaper than ever, and even the luxury hotels are much more affordable than ever before.

                    I disagree. It´s totally accessable, and once you get the routes down within the casinos, it´s a breeze. $12 for an all day pass is expensive? In Vegas? Thats pretty much chump change, but, too each his own.

                      You can rent a car, but you will pay a daily surcharge if your under 25. Best bet is to make a rental car rez online and choose a casino location. I stayed at the Flamingo last time and rented from Hertz, which rents right out of the casino. Many casinos do this. Very convienient.

                        The monrail is a dud. I've been to Las Vegas maybe 8 times now and used it only once....and that was one time too many. Stay at either; Bellagio, Mirage, Treasure Island or Wynn. They are all new, at the best location on the strip and completely accessible. Call ahead and nail down an accessible room. Mirage only has 2 with roll-in showers. You can get around the strip easily by pushing or by cab or the Deuce....you don't need a car at all except to blow out of town. Cheaper to stay, eat and better gambling downtown....but it's a little run down compared to the glitz of the strip.

                          I was just there a few weeks ago for a rugby tournament..

                          Stayed on Fremont St (the old strip) with huge screen over that played a collosal light show every hour,which was cool! It was cheaper than the strip,the Deuce was is an easy 1/2 block roll away and trhen it was only a 20min ride to anywhere on the strip..The strip itself is easy to wheel,we did it twice.If your just kickin it on the strip you by no means need a car

                            Is the monorail sort of like the one at the airport (terminal for southwest) where it stops and you're right in the hotel/casino or do you have to push a distance to get to the hotel entrance. I pass by it on my way to the bank and it doesn't look like it has alot of riders, but maybe it does.

                              The monorail was never packed when I used it. It would be if they would have been allowed to extend the monorail to the airport, but the taxi lobby killed that idea. You do have to push a ways to get to the back/side entrances of the casinos, but nothing dramatic. For me, it was great to check out the Hilton, and then just hop on the monorail and head down to the MGM inside of 20 minutes or so. Of course, if your staying at the Flamingo for example (which has it´s own station and is located near the center of the strip) and you want to check out the Palazzo or Paris, cruising the strip is the better way. But for the long haul strip moves, say Stratosphere/Sahara, back to the Flamingo to change and then head on down to Mandalay Bay and beyond, it was great.
