    My Trip Report

    Big Top’s Solo Trip to Vega$-(June 15th to the 19th)

    I started to prepare for the Vegas trip by watching the standards-(Honeymoon in Vegas, Vegas Vacation, Casino, Also saw Ocean’s 13 on HBO as I was getting ready to leave for the airport) Airline out and back was via Allegiant Air and was fine both ways and will fly again with them without hesitation. Arrived in Vegas on time and took shuttle from airport-(I can’t remember which one.. but was a white bus-$6.50 one way) I was the first stop for the Flamingo- Checked into a standard room and the room was fine and clean and I spent very little time in the room anyway… I like the Flamingo and have never had an issues…. Gambled at Planet Hollywood-(BJ) O’Shea’s-(BJ & Craps) but mostly at Bill’s Gambling Hall-(BJ). I meet a lot of nice people at Bill’s and I like the BlackJack and Pit Bosses at Bill’s-(If you go to Bill’s Give a shout out to the Blackjack dealer Danny from Hawaii and Paw and all the other dealers from Topper!!!! :0)
    I went downtown via the Duce and bought the 24 hour pass for $7.00 well worth it. I also used it the next day to go to In-and Out Burger behind New York New York. –(Take the duce down to New York New York and then connect to the 201 at the Tropicana towards NYNY and the second stop past the strip is In-And Out-(You will see it on the corner) It is always busy but worth the Wait..(Animal Style!!!)

    Other than that a great trip and I can’t wait to get back!!!!


    Good luck...

    Deuce prices

    Yes, the prices went up for a 24 hour pass, but they now sell 3 day passes for $15 - but you have to buy that pass from a machine - the drivers can't sell the 3 day passes. The only machine I know of is in front of MGM.
    (At least, that was in March, when I was there last)

    Is the amount of time spent enroute via bus worth it to In-n-Out orjust pay a taxi??? but I guess the meter would still run while u are in there, so I may have answered my own question...lol

    The Bus Connection was fine-(dropped off by Excalibur on the Duce) then walked down Tropicana down by Tropicana/and Hooters to bus stop and it went quickly.. The wait for food was about 10-15 minutes around 11:00 am on a Thursday if that helps... I would do the bus trip again...

    Deuce Ticket Machines

    The only other machine on the strip is between Slots-o-fun and Viva McDonald's :) They really should have a couple more mid strip
