    We will be getting a rental when we head to Vegas in March, I was thinking of google mapping some routes from DT to some off strip places, but I wasnt sure which ones were worth going too. Are there any places, I know Henderson will probably be one we go to since they have multiple casinos, that have more than 1 casino in the general area? I am sure alot of you have done this before so anyone who has any ideas, feel free to chime in. WHen we got married in 06 we had a rental and stopped by a couple out of the way places, maybe Sunset Station and Sams Town, I cant be totally positive though. Anyway, thanks for the help in advance!

    I would consider one of three options that would allow you to hit a few casinos at a time.

    #1 South of the strip. Hit Silverton, South Point, M Resort, Green Valley Ranch.

    #2 Boulder Highway. Hit Boulder Station, Arizona Charlie's, Sam's Town, Eastside Cannery, and possibly Sunset Station.

    #3 West valley. Hit Red Rock, Rampart, Suncoast.

    All 3 are good options for different reasons. South of the strip has my favorite properties, with a good mix of mid level and more high end properties. Boulder Highway is the place to go for cheaper food and gambling, and would be a good place to go to earn future room offers for little coin in. The Red Rock area would allow you to explore Red Rock Canyon. You can do the loop through Red Rock Canyon in 45 minutes and then hit one of the casinos in the area for dinner and gaming.

    I've been renting a car for 5-6 years, and I love the chance to explore the locals casinos. I now do almost all of my gambling at Boyd and Station properties, and I haven't paid for a room in Vegas in a very long time.

    Z has it down pretty well. I would also offer a 4th option... Near the strip... Hit Palace Station, Gold Coast, Rio, Palm, Orleans, and possibly Wild Wild West on the West side of the strip, then Hard Rock, Ellis Island and LVH on the East side. This will give you a nice sampling from low roller dive to mid level properties.

    Those sound like good plans. I wills ay I have been to Palms and LVH and dont think I will be wasting my time going back. Nothing for me to see there and the party atmosphere at the Palms is down right annoying. I think we will definitely try the south and boulder highway trips though. Both sound like alot of fun!! Thanks all!
