    Hello, what is some of the best swag per $ in vegas? Basically, something impressive that you can get for free, a fraction of the price or for less than you would expect?

    This could include restaurants, events, activities, nightlife, etc. Really anything. Keeping this open-ended for the vegas experts. Also please advise on any tips, strategies, etc that I can use to take advantage of these deals.

    Generally interested in swag priced <= $1k but also interested in hearing about your experience if you spent more than $1k and got a ridiculous amount of swag.

    For starters, you can stay in a 5 diamond resort midweek for probably 25% of the price in any other major city.

    Outside of hotels rooms, Vegas is on par with other cities and resort towns on their pricing. There are surveys that show food to be more expensive than everywhere else. For Broadway type shows, they are more expensive than touring show but I'm not really sure how they stack up against Broadway itself.

    Hotels are by far the best value for the $ in Las Vegas. Midweek rates at a place like Aria are really reasonable. The same rate almost anywhere else gets you a residence inn or a Courtyard by Marriott.

    Cosmos social hour is their happy hour for the restaurants. Most of the deals are decent and let's you sample a few of them for cheap. But the best deal at The Cosmo is the lunch special at Milo's.

    In line with what others are saying about rooms, you can get suites in some hotels in Vegas for less than you would pay for basic rooms in some markets.

    What's the lunch special at Milo's? I've heard this mentioned a couple of times already. Please explain further. I've never been to the Cosmo.
