Don't miss visiting downtown after dark.......the Freemont Street Experience light show is not to be missed, and it's free.
Actually I really enjoy staying at the Golden Nugget downtown.
My hubby mentioned Rio to be a great placed to stay at as well, so I'll include that. He was at Vegas last year with his friends but they weren't able to really visit some of the beautiful places because their main reason of going there is to play poker..and he love Bellagio -- good thing he wasn't the one who paid for that but the one who sponsored them in playing poker..

This is getting more exciting for me!

Be aware that the Rio is off the main strip and NOT an easy walk to the Strip!
That said... there are shuttle buses to and from the Rio, if you want to time it.

My one suggestion is to buy a bus pass. Three days $15 each, and you will be
very happy you got them. Since everything is BIG on the strip, distances are
deceptive and everything is farther away than you think. You can buy the bus
passes from kiosks on the strip.
The Rio has a GREAT seafood buffet, well worth the $34 price if you like crab
and oysters and fish and such!

If I recall, the shuttle bus from the Rio goes to Bally's in the center of the Strip. GrillingFool is totally right, everything in Las Vegas is big, and a block is not your normal idea of a block (the casinos themselves are designed for easy access and very far exit, a walk-in trap). Transport, whether with bus shuttles, or the monorail, or a few other good free options, is important to research for efficiently enjoying Las Vegas.

I second the Downtown Fremont Street Experience! It is spectacular and romantic.

by the way, video poker is one of the only statistically fair games in Vegas, Julia. I'm sure your hub is coaching you in the card game, since he has almost nothing to do with planning the wedding.

You are absolutely right! He already taught me how to play the card game. We usually practice with the online poker games in facebook where we could play against other facebook users. And it is really fun.

We went to the wedding venue the other day and it is sooo beautiful. The owner of the place is my hubby's aunt so we are also hoping to get discounts on food since they're not charging us with renting the place.

I wasn't able to take a picture but here is a picture I got from their website, the place is called Cucina Nassi..

Smile Honeymoon in Vegas

Be sure to sign up for "Total Rewards" and next time you visit, your room will probably be free!

I stayed in Vegas for a training class last month. It was at the Flamingo. I believe rooms were $65/night. They were decent too. Not as nice as a Marriot now, maybe a Marriot 10 years ago. I ate at Mesa Grill (right across the street in Ceasars Palace) once. $40 for a quesadilla appetizer and draft beer. It was really good though!

The Venetian has a wonderful restaurant called The Grand Lux Cafe. Everything we have tried on the menu is outstanding. Excellent service, large portions. Our waitress even suggested splitting a meal. Congratulations on the upcoming event. Betsy.
