    Hello,
    I'm Nadia from Montreal.
    So glad I found this website. It will make my first ever Vegas trip much more fun!
    Things I can't wait to do:
    -See the lights.
    -Walk on the strip.
    -Eat In-N-Out (My California friends told me so much about it)
    -See all the hotels.
    -Try to play a little bit.
    -Take pictures. (I'm a photography student)

    I bought a hotel deal online not long ago on a groupon like website. 59$ for 3 nights at the Monte Carlo.
    Saving money with the hotel means more money for fun in Vegas :)

    Looking forward to read everything on here!

    Cheers! :cheers:

    Welcome to the board, Nadia! I loved my stay at Monte Carlo last year.

    The first trip is a fun one and you should find lots of helpful info here. Just remember that your first trip can be overwhelming. There are a million options of things to do, but nowhere near enough time. My advice for a new person is to not plan too much. Leave plenty of room for wandering and gawking. And have a wonderful trip!

    Thank you :)

    Even browsing this message board can be overwhelming. I cannot imagine the real thing!

    I'm both excited and nervous.

    I don't want to end up in tourists traps or end up spending more money than I planned.

    Nadia forget the gambling part!!

    Play tourist and see as much as you can.

    Bring COMFORTABLE walking shoes. A Las Vegas Block is equal to one mile. The casino resort looks so close, but yet, it is probably two miles from you. At least, it will seem like two miles.

    The Fabulous Las Vegas sign is a short walk SOUTH of Mandalay Bay. It will be crowded. Watch out for crazy drivers.

    The roller coaster ride at New York New York is best done from the FRONT car on a new moon night. That means it is very dark. Look for coupons for the ride.

    The Eiffel Tower Elevator View is a MEH in my opinion. You can get better views by going to places like the Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay, Voodoo Lounge at Rio, Ghost Bar at Palms, or Moon Bar at Palms.

    If you are a fan of the Hangover Movies, then Ceasars is a must stop. Look for the animated statues of Zeus, Hades, and stuff somewhere in that casino. There is a chocolate store near it.

    If you want FREE water, just ask a cocktail waitress for a bottle of water, or you can ask the front desk of your hotel. They should provide you one.

    Since you are posting now, I guess you are going in the summer. You must do a POOL day. Forget everything else, and do a Pool Party somewhere.

    DEWEY provides some great information on how to use the bus in Las Vegas. I know you can buy an all day pass or a three day pass and travel up and down the strip as much as you want.
