    My first and only time to Vegas(until tomorrow anyways:thumbsup:) was July 4th 2011. We arrived that day and honestly I didnt notice anything out of the ordinary going on. People said that Caesars would do fireworks display so we got a nice seat at the upstairs bar at Margaritaville with a great view ad nothing! I didnt see firworks anywhere. I do remember it being insanely hot and humid which I wasn't expecting, the heat yes but not the humidty. I wish I could help you out with more info but really July 4th didnt seem like a big deal there. Have fun!:drunk:

    I wouldn't worry about booking anything in advance Martyn, I go for a few weeks which cover that period every year and it's just a bit busier for a week night in my experience.

    I think that MGM, Encore, Aria and Cosmo all have good pool parties, but I don't partake myself so am not 100%

    I'm sure young lads would all like shooting guns, there is a range somewhere in Vegas that offers this.

    Strip clubs are obviously not in short supply either and are always popular :evillaugh

    Fourth of July is more of a family style holiday, so from the casino/entertaining tourists point of view Las Vegas usually doesn't do too much - there are usually fireworks and things going on at the lake or at local parks. Stratosphere is usually the one property that is pretty consistent with their party and Downtown does a little fireworks show on the overhead FSE canopy.

    On The Strip itself, the hotels will usually only do fireworks on the 4th of July if it falls on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday.


    I will also add: because its your sons 21st birthday he can probably expect to be asked for ID pretty much everywhere he goes. If he doesn't have his ID on him he can't even stand around the casino and just watch somebody else play (tables or slots) or sit in the bar and drink non-alcohol drinks.

    Just by its nature he probably doesn't want to be taking his passport with him everywhere so you'll want to make sure he has a picture ID with him, plus if going to the pools/pool parties having a laminated ID would hold up better were something to happen and he only had his passport in his pocket.

    There are loads of cheap hotel rooms in vegas so do yourselves a huge favor and get as many as you can afford.

    Nothing ruins a holiday faster then cramming everyone in a room.

    Keep in mind the huge time change and couple that with vegas being a 24/7 town and your room can be a revolving door of people going in and out.

    Many of these hotels have 5000 rooms so you can find something for everybody.

    Also the hotels are basically next to each other so you can stay someplace cheaper and just walk across the street to party somewhere.

    If you are going to pool parties like rehab at hard rock then you just take a cab because everyone has to pay to get in anyway.

    some other non pool party pools require you to be a guest so think about this beforehand as well.

    Dont stay at Circus Circus. Its too far away from the action and the casino is dull. you will have to walk or cab everywhere which is an added expense.

    Also factor in eating costs. you will need a few meals each day. The fancier hotels will have fancier foods which will cost you a lot more money. Cheaper places will have a better selection of cheaper foods.
