Travel Tips from people who've been to Las Vegas
If you're travelling to Vegas from the UK, try to fly direct. Unfortunately there aren't too many carriers to choose from (of the top of my head Virgin out of Gatwick, and BMI out of Manchester), but the upside is you'll arrive at the smaller and a lot less busy international terminal at McCarran airport, so security and getting your bags sould be much faster.

Just walking the strip is a great activty- you don't spend anything, but you can get a drink and take it with you if you want. You can stop in at the hotels to look around and there is shopping everywhere, but unless you are really into gambling they are all pretty much the same.

Stay in the tourist area's. Lived there for several years. There are parts just outside the tourist areas that you do not want to wonder around in. Gard your valuables.
