A Las Vegas experience can be budget-minded or a sky's-the-limit splurge. Prices are generally seasonal and typically increase for weekends, holidays and special events.

Typical costs:

  • A three- or four-day weekend for two with meals, shows, gambling and other adventures typically costs about $1,000-$3,000 -- although it's possible to spend a lot less or a good deal more.
  • Air/hotel package deals vary depending on the distance traveled and the quality and location of the accommodations. A four-day weekend air/hotel package can cost $300-$800 or more per person from San Francisco and $500-$1,100 or more per person from New York City, with rooms in casinos on the famous Las Vegas Strip[1] generally costing more than those located off the Strip. (First-timers may want to find a room on the Strip to get the full effect of Glitter Gulch.)
  • For those using flight vouchers or driving to Vegas and looking for budget accommodations, there are three Motel 6[2] locations with rates generally running $29-$75 per night double occupancy, depending on whether it's a weekday or the weekend. The AAA fuel calculator[3] estimates a trip from Seattle to Las Vegas in a 2009 Toyota Camry is about 2,476 miles and requires 117.9 gallons, at a cost of $470-$500 for fuel.
  • Room rates at hotel fluctuate a great deal, and it's possible to find inexpensive lodging on the Strip by shopping around. For example, rooms at Circus Circus[4] start at $25-$100 a night midweek (double occupancy) and increase to $100-$200 on the weekend, while a standard room at the Wynn Las Vegas[5] starts at about $150-$350 per night double occupancy depending on whether it's a weeknight or weekend, and suites can be $500-$1,000 or more a night.
  • Dining out can be budget-minded or indulgently gourmet. LasVegas.com offers helpful lists of: dining bargains[6] starting at $3-$5 for a complete breakfast and $3-$20 for dinner; buffets[7] -- a Vegas tradition -- for $15 or less to $35 or more person person; and themed restaurants[8] where meals typically cost $35-$100 or more per person.

Additional costs:
  • Concerts or big production shows can cost $30-$300 or more per ticket. For example, Cirque du Soleil[9] has several ongoing productions for $35-$180 per ticket. Vegas.com provides a list of Las Vegas shows[10] and offers advance reservations at many Las Vegas hot spots[11] . Cover charges vary and front-of-the-line passes will cost more.
  • Side tours to the Grand Canyon or Hoover Dam start at about $80-$150 for a bus trip with lunch, but it can cost $300-$550 or more for deluxe tours that combine options like an airplane flight, helicopter flight, boat trip, Native American buffet and more.
  • Golfers can hit the greens at one of Las Vegas' many golf courses[12] , with fees ranging from $15-$200 or more.
  • Las Vegas also offers dozens of spas[13] . Tips are not usually included in the price and a gratuity of 15%-20% is appropriate.
Discounts:
  • Some attractions are free, like the Sirens of TI Show[14] at Treasure Island; the fountains at the Bellagio; and the Fremont Street Experience[15] .
  • Other attractions are relatively low-cost: the Eiffel Tower Experience[16] at Paris Las Vegas is $7.50-$10.50 in the daytime and $10.50-$15.50 at night; the roller coaster[17] at New York-New York costs $14 for an individual ticket, $60 for a family of four with two photos and $25 for an all-day pass; and the gondola ride[18] at the Venetian is $16 per person or $64 for a private two-passenger gondola.
  • Travelers interested in staying at a particular casino should check its website for special Internet offers or to sign up for rewards programs for returning customers.
Shopping for travel to las vegas:
  • Good starting points for planning a Vegas getaway include VisitLasVegas.com[19] (operated by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority) or the travel companies at Vegas.com[20] or LasVegas.com[21] .
  • Comparison shop for travel packages offered by sites like Cheap Tickets[22] , Expedia[23] , Orbitz[24] , Priceline[25] or Travelocity[26] .
  • Major airlines flying into and out of Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport[27] include American Airlines[28] , Delta Airlines, Southwest Airlines[29] , United Airlines[30] and US Airways[31] .
