Good luck in the Trippies! I just want to have some fun, and not just waste money for no fun. I figure i deserve to be pampered a little.
People who knew him were under the impression that he was a profitable gambler, or that he at least won often enough to make his casino lifestyle worthwhile. According to a person who has reviewed Mr. Paddock had six-figure credit lines at casinos that afforded him the chance to make big sums in long sit-down sessions, and he was known as someone who always paid his accounts.
His rooms were often comped, meaning given to him free, including this past weekend at Mandalay Bay, according to the person familiar with his history. He was there to play, not to party. The night before the shooting, Mr. Paddock made two complaints to the hotel about noise coming from his downstairs neighbors: Albert Garzon, a restaurant owner visiting from San Diego, and his wife and friends.
Garzon, who was staying in , directly beneath Mr. Paddock, said security guards knocked on his door around 1: They turned the music down, but had another visit from different security guards half an hour later. The man had called to complain again.
Garzon turned the music off. Garzon realized Mr. Paddock had been the complainer. At the Atlantis in Reno, Mr. Paddock would often move to a machine when somebody using it got up to take a break. Weinreich said. At Mandalay Bay, Mr. The room has its own attendants, working behind a desk, and its own restrooms, to keep gamblers close.
The relative anonymity fit his personality in many ways — a solitary pursuit that exercised his calculating mind. He studied it like it was a Ph. It was not silly gambling. It was work. Video poker receives less attention than poker at the tables, which has garnered fame and riches for those who compete in tournaments such as the World Series of Poker. Video poker shares some of the same parameters — players looking for winning combinations of cards, from pairs and full houses to straights and flushes.
Several people took Uber's and Lyfts to get around town.. Great way to get around to see a very interesting city. Always enjoy the diversity and activity of Vegas! Nothing, the only reason we went was for the tournament. Vegas is an ugly looking city now, not like when I was growing up there. I love the city but I wish that we could've stayed at a better hotel. We would've enjoyed out stay a lot more. Go check out: Bringing a group we really appreciated the bus pass getting up and down the strip Our group went downtown twice for adventures It was easy and saved our younger guest carting and spending money they didn't have!!!
We used taxis too but daily the bus was great way to travel short distance in the heat!! I really don't care for Las Vegas ,Reno yes! I only went to attend a wedding. I highly recommend The Ritz Wedding chapel. It is not a Cheesy Elvis wedding. Very high class venue with excellent chefs ,waiters and bar staff.
Very very high class. North Premium Outlets are well worth a visit if you like a bargain. Jersey Boys which is showing at the Paris theatre was great and managed to get half price orchestra tickets theatre size and shape means all seats are good. Taxis are reasonable priced and good value for money, especially if a few of you are sharing.
Most hotels have taxi ranks so easy to get a taxi. Fountain show at Bellagio is well worth a look. I was there on a conference so I didn't get to see much. But there is always something to do or see. The Hotel, Red Rock, alone has much to do and see. I'm not a big city person, but I do love that in Las Vegas, that there is so much to do for all ages.
Las Vegas is a tourist city, there's nothing to dislike, not even the crowds or busy streets and valets. The free water show in front of the Bellagio was great and the use of the monorail to go from hotel to hotel on the strip was convenient. If you are planning on visiting Las Vegas, the Entertainment Capital of the World, here are a few tips to make your trip more enjoyable and save you a few dollars along the way.
If your dates are flexible try to avoid stays that include Friday and Saturday. If your trip requires you to stay over the weekend, try to book in the summer time. The first three months of the year are known as convention season in Las Vegas and demand can be high, even during the week. Planning your trip in between Memorial Day and Labor Day will definitely save you money. If you want to beat the heat, plan a trip in between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The weekend before Christmas is typically the least expensive weekend of the year in Las Vegas. Las Vegas is the spot all the shows, people and fun is here. The strip is amazing especially at night its one big party. We had the children with us on this trip. There was a nice variety of entertainment for them, and of course plenty for the adults to do as well. High roller Ferris wheel pods were the highlight of this trip.
Roomy, comfortable and new are three words I would use besides awesome. Bellagio fountains were amazing. Every hotel offered a different and amazing theme. I Love Vegas! Vegas is fun for a day or two. Way too expensive now though. And way too much traffic and people now also.
We got married quick and simple. Las Vegas has shopping, restaurants, entertainment and recreation to die for. Las Vegas was fun because there was so much to see. We walked and walked. Gambled some, saw some shows and had dinner and several good restaurants. We only had one day in Las Vegas, but people watching was great entertainment on the strip. Golf was good. Scenery was very nice. There were a few things for me to do elsewhere since I am not a drinker or gambler I was there on business.
The access of the skybridges at intersections was very pleasing as well. Makes it much easier to move about without impacting traffic, or having to wait around for a light to change. Other than the flow of alcohol, the option to take your drink s with you where ever you go was great. The Vegas shows are phenomonal.
Lots to see and do. Good restaurants buffets that are sure to please even the pickiest eater. Great quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of work at home. Food is excellent depending on the restaurant and the entertainment is interesting. Restaurants, shows, beautiful mountain view, water show at the Bellagio and accessibility to other great attractions!! Red Rock Canyon nearby. Once you get off the strip, the city is poorly maintained. There are a lot of stores and motels that have been shut down.
So many entertainment options. A great balance of dance and acrobatics. Loved the shopping and nightlife. There is so much to do and choose from. I couldn't get it all done. The strip is well within walking distance but it is so unsafe due to the roads and traffic near the hotel that I would not dare attempt. Would be wonderful to have a safe walking route from Hampton Inn Tropicana to the strip. I am by no means a gambler, but my husband and I spent a few days in Vegas before a 3-day white water rafting trip in the Grand Canyon.
You don't have to spend one moment gambling to enjoy Vegas. Just walking down the strip and visiting the hotels is like a trip through Hotel Disneyland. You can ride a gondola or walk what appears to be the streets of Paris. You can ride roller coasters, or experience a Star Trek recreation. Have your picture taken with the Borg or Elvis Presley.
There are literally hundreds of free or low-cost entertainment options you never would have imagined. Even for us non-gamblers, Las Vegas is a bargain and a fun vacation. I highly recommend the excursion to the Grand Canyon while you're there! AAA Member. Senior Discounts. Business Traveler.

Ramon L. Chelsea S. Irma J. I am an 8th grade teacher and would love a day of relaxation but I really dont want to be the only guy there. Any ideas would be huge. Where to stay?? Since traveling solo.. How do you get comped rooms or where are the deals? You can get comped rooms by gambling at a certain level the level depends on the resort , or by playing MyVegas on Facebook.
If you are on a tight budget, you might consider Downtown Fremont Street or off the Strip. Though I will say that hotel rooms in Vegas are much cheaper than most U. You get a lot more bang for your buck here. I liked your site. I will be going on a solo trip to vegas sept 3rd-7th. Would it be safe on the strip as a young woman? My arrival will be around If I do not schedule one, will I be able to get one at the airport?
I am debating myself if I should schedule one. If I do, what would happened if my flight got delayed and I paid for it already. Hi, Winnie, Yes, the Strip is as safe as anywhere for women. I generally arrive after 9pm. Things are usually just getting started about then, so there will be plenty of people out and about, and everything is well lit.
But you may have to stop at several other hotels before you get to your own. I would not bother booking online ahead of time. You can do that when you get to the airport. If you carry a purse, wear it across your body. Then relax and enjoy yourself! I am coming to Vegas solo for my 40th Birthday in twelve days all my friends bailed on me. I have no problem going by myself, but I am glad I found this site.
My really good friend from High school lives there so I will at least have somebody to celebrate with. What a great place to spend your 40th, Yolanda! Hey Gray, Thanks for the great information. Going to Vegas for girls weekend Oct , but I will be solo on the 3rd, before they arrive. Is this still a good choice for solo female?
I should think so. I have been trying to talk my sister into going again in two weeks since we went in June but my pregnant niece went and well, kinda killed the fun. She was sick, tired, etc. I have been more times than I can count but never alone. No one can go now and I have a window of opportunity before I start a new career venture. I have been doing things alone forever but this one makes me a little anxious. I enjoy my time alone and never get enough so this blog has helped me see that I am not alone.
I need to make that last minute reservation! Go Linda! I booked my trip last night and I got an excellent deal at the Palazzo! I cant wait to have six days to myself! That is great news, Linda! OMG, you are going to love the Palazzo! Linda, Good for you!! Not sure when you will be there. But I will be there solo Oct 2 and 3 before girlfriends arrive for the weekend. If you are there at the same time, maybe we can meet for a drink?
Could be fun. Anyway, let me know if it works for you. The worst thing about solo travel for me is the reaction of my friends and family they act like I have a mental illness because once in a while I like to have a little me time and vacation on my own. I have travelled to Vegas before, but with a group of ladies.
I want to go in December by myself, but I am one the fence if it will be safe or not. I need help to decide. Run to Vegas solo!!! You will love the freedom of doing whatever you want. If you want to sleep in and watch tv. If you want to lounge at the pool all day drinking mojitos. If you want to gamble and take in shows. Just go. Post what you decide. I may be up financially for Vegas in December. Sing it, Rida. I was reading a really good book while on this trip and kept wanting to just find a quiet space where I could sit and read for awhile.
Not what I normally do in Vegas, but really satisfying nonetheless. And be very careful if you go to nightclubs. Those are the sketchy places for women, in my opinion. December is a fun time to go because the resorts all have Christmas decorations up check out Bellagio Conservatory and the atrium at the Palazzo. Well everyone, I booked my trip to Vegas today!
Wish me luck! I loved this post. Great post! Hi, Todd! Or maybe a little of both. And hey, thanks for your support in the Trippies! Thanks Gray. Glad I found your blog and am looking forward to future posts! Good luck in the Trippies! It will be my first time. Advice please? No need to feel weird about it, Jason. Quite likely no one will give you a thought at all unless you do something to draw attention to yourself. In fact, many people who travel to Las Vegas with a friend or partner often split up and do things separately one goes to gamble, while the other goes to shop or eat ; and there are a lot of people who are in Vegas on business by themselves.
Just go and have fun! I just got back on Dec 4, and had an awesome time! I would do it again in a heartbeat! In regards to being by yourself — no one really knows or cares if you are alone. If you see someone walking down the strip alone, they could be meeting the rest of their party or simply enjoying their own company.
It is much easier to find good tickets to shows i especially last minute if you only need to seat one! Glad to hear your trip went well, Liz not that I doubted it for a moment. Works with bar seating, too. Solo to Vegas in 24 hours! Poker is not really a group activity like Blackjack or Craps, or even Slots. I am so stoked!!! Wow—12 nights! I wish I could go in October but I will be in school. I only saw shows the last time I was there. Maybe this time I will see sights.
I will def take advice from your best of lists. Maybe next October I can do Vegas for your annual meetup: Vegas on three. Have fun on your trip! Gray, I really enjoyed this post. Do you think this can screw up my nights there? That is a good question, Cassiano. I think in most cases, people especially in the tourism industry will be patient and try to understand what you are trying to say to them. If you have access to a smartphone, you might consider downloading a translation app.
Good luck! I had a trip booked in oct. So excited! I read your blog on breakfasts and I must say the Earl in miracle mile is fantastic. I will visit it again. Hi, Linda! Good to hear from someone who has a solo trip coming up! What a great way to treat yourself right before starting a new job.
In good heath and have been to vegas many times — I feel comfortable there and know my way around. Have split up many times from friends on past trips and met up with them later. I loved been on my own-but still feel a little nervous about being entirely on my own.
Should I? Leslie — Yes, of course you should go! No need to feel nervous. Otherwise, just go and have fun. The weather should be very nice for your trip. Have a good time! I just got back from Las Vegas last week, and it was a truly wonderful vacation! It was my 27th birthday and I wanted to see Britney Spears. The only person I could rely on to not break plans, and who would be able to afford it, was my mother. Walking the strip was a blast too. I would encourage any woman, who is responsible, to do it, as I myself might some day.
The only thing that would bother me is the McCarran Las Vegas airport. Oh, and the food prices in LV, holy cow. Hi, Michelle — Thanks for stopping by to share your story! You must have flown into Terminal 1 at McCarran. Terminal 3 is practically a ghost town.
Traveling to Vegas solo for the first time in April! So happy to have found this site. I am very nervous but have everything I want to do and see planned out. I usually travel with friends or family and I think it will be refreshing to be able to do what I want when I want to. Nothing sucks more then waiting for your girls to wake up and get ready when you have been ready to roll since 6am! I, too, am going solo to LV in March. I have been going for years but never alone! So much to do. I just hope its not raining..
January is supposed to be the rainiest month there. I just returned from my first solo trip to vegas and except for becoming symptomatic of the flu while the plane was landing, I enjoyed it and will do it again! I always felt safe at the Paris and I felt totally safe his trip. I think I need a do-over since I was sick half the trip but I loved the last two days and hit four art galleries that day!
I will go again! It sucks to be sick in Vegas. Yay to the restorative powers of Vegas! Ha, I love this: There you go, Linda. People would love it. Thanks for your help. I am going to Las vegas in April with my Dad. I am 22 and he is 66 and we have decided to do our own thing once we get there if we dont want to do what each other is doing so as to maximise our own visits. I would be quite nervous standing on my own as I would feel vulnerable. Hi, Jess — First of all, congratulations on striking such a great balance on the trip with your dad.
An equally independent travel companion is the best kind! You should be fine. So go, have fun! Come home with great stories for your friends. Love this post! I been traveling solo for a couple years now but never to Vegas! But I plan to this summer. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestion for hostels? I usually stay in hostels for the price, and to meet fellow travelers.
I have always had a blast in hostels while traveling solo, looking for one in Vegas to enjoy! Any recommendations people??? Maybe someone else can? At the end of May May will be my 6th trip to Vegas, and my 3rd time going solo…..
First solo trip, I stayed at Treasure Island, and had so much fun wandering to the Mirage, and going across the strip to the Venetian, and the Palazzo, and the Wynn….. If anyone is in Vegas from May May 23rd, would love to get together for a drink or two….. Enjoy your stay at the Aria! This is my first stay there got a comp for friday and my usuall hotel the quad was way over priced not renting a car hotel has a shuttle to fashion show mall as well as airport I going to buy a 3 day bus pass To get around.
So glad I found this!! Im planning to go on monday. I have the tickets already! I was supposed to go with my boyfriend but we got into an argument and he is not going! I really want to go. I paid for the tikets and I dont want to loose that money! But I dont know if I should go alone.
This is going to be my first time there and dont know what to do when Im there all by myself. Should I go or just forget about it?? Hi, Esmer — Definitely you should go, and enjoy yourself! You can do whatever you were planning on doing with your boyfriend, but do it alone.
Gamble, see some shows, have some nice meals, laze around the pool, do some sightseeing. LOTS of people go to Vegas by themselves and most of them have a great time doing so. I think you should definitely go. I had be thinking about it and if my plans were to go Im gonna try to have fun out there.
And yes Todd maybe we can have a drink or so Im gonna be by myself! I was just wondering if you or any of your readers have stayed at either one. Thanks- I love all your blogs! Leslie — I have stayed at both and would again. TI has the nicer rooms, but overall, I like Monte Carlo better better location for the things I like to do, better pool area, better restaurants, and tram to Bellagio. But if quality of the room matters the most to you, go with TI.
The rooms at Monte Carlo are really showing their age. Hi I just found this sight and love it. I have been going to Vegas for the last five years by myself as a friend of mine back out on me one spring so I took the trip by myself. It was the best time I ever had in Vegas. I still go to Vegas with friends but in the spring it always by myself. The couple of things that I like best about being alone out there is I go to bed and wake up when I want and when I am hungry I find a place to eat.
I meet people from all over the world out there. Yours is a familiar story, Mr. Kelly S — A lot of people start traveling solo because a friend backed out on them. I had a wonderful time! I had many Groupons for restaurants for the evenings which saved quite a bit of money. Never felt awkward eating by myself.
My only tip would be comfort before fashion. I paid the price in blisters. I would go again by myself anytime! Hi, Raphaelle! Yay, another solo success story! Oh, I totally second that—comfort before fashion. So much walking in Vegas! Woohoo, first trip! Go Megan! I hope you have a great time! Any other solo travellers heading to Vegas that week? Yeah, me, Melissa! I could probably meet up with you separately at some point.
Email me if you want to set something up: Glad I found this! I feel better after reading this! Hope I make new friends! Vegas is a great time, no matter what. I just stumbled across this site and have really enjoyed it. My wife and I visited Vegas many times over the years.
Friends and relatives have offered to join me, but, frankly, I need to do this on my own. This site makes me more comfortable with the idea. You may have moments of loneliness we all do , but try to push past them. Best of luck and I hope you have a wonderful trip. Whatever doubt I had about my decision to go by myself has vanished.
