    Hi All,
    I am new this site, been to Vegas a few times. I have a trip planned 7/17-7/21 and my friend is no longer able to go. I have already paid for everything so I'm going alone and I am a little apprehensive. I'm not a big gambler,I prefer to hang out by the pool, check out some sites, enjoy dinner and drinks. I guess I'm wondering what to do as a solo traveler...I have never been one before!

    Welcome!!! Your trip is right around the corner... you'll have plenty of fun I'm sure. I go to Las Vegas for business once a month, so am often solo... Vegas is great for that! Easy to meet people if that's what you want and easy to fly under the radar as well. What to do? Whatever you want... Vegas is very easy on the solo-traveler!

    I have spent my share of time as a solo traveler to Vegas. Vegas is fairly easy for the solo traveler. I have done all the things mentioned and not had any issues. So as a solo traveler you can do everything and more than traveling with a companion. One plus is you can do what you want when you want, no questions asked.

    You are leaving when I arrive, or I could have given you the 'unofficial Vegas tour for the solo traveler' tour by me. Been traveling solo to Vegas for over 25 years and I love it!
    You'll have so much fun and the time will fly by. Don't worry about your friend not making it, you're gonna have a blast!

    I suggest you hang out by the pool, check out some sites, enjoy dinner and drinks. :) I like solo traveling, but others are uncomfortable with it. One of the fun things about Vegas is that you can always make some new friends while you're in town.

    Do a search using "solo" and you should find a number of threads about solo trips and recommendations on things to do.
