Carry a Light Jacket, Water and Sunscreen Everywhere
This may sound silly that in the middle of summer you have to carry a light jacket with you because it may be scorching outside but as soon as you will be chilled to the bone by the AC in the casino once you enter. You should also ensure you carry with you a bottle of water and sunscreen as there will be a lot of walking and you will get dehydrated easily.

Try to avoid peak dinner times
6-8pm is the peak dinner times in Las Vegas, and it is advisable if you can have your dinner between 5-5:30 and 8:30-9pm to save stress and time you will use in staying on the queue which you can use to explore some other areas. There are some cases that you have to be at the time allotted to you and you should make sure you are there at the time.
Shuttle and Save

Consider Car Rental
