My Official Cheapskate Guide to Las Vegas


TRAVEL- The following is my penny pinchers guide to Las Vegas. The best way to cut your vacation costs is to travel cheap. The cheapest flights are mid-week, Tues & Wednesdays are best. If you are "self employed (a professional online poker player who sets his own hours)" Go last minute. There are almost always last minute deals to fill those empty seats. So travel midweek and even better travel off-season. This will cut you total vacation expenses down greatly.

TRANSPORTATION- When in Vegas you can get around for free by walking and using trams. Or you can take the bus, which covers the entire strip and downtown for two bucks a fare. But I found renting a car works best and is sometimes cheaper than taking buses or taxis. If you go midweek you can get a car for 15-20 bucks a day, cheap!

LODGING- The cheapest hotel I can think of is Westward Ho rear. They have some of the lowest rates. Otherwise I usually stay downtown. Midweek you can find a room for around 30-40 bucks.

FOOD- For a buffet try the Gold Coast, its pretty good and only about 7 bucks. When in Vegas you have to try the $.99 Shrimp cocktail at the Golden Gate Casino. Want a larger serving? Try a half rack of ribs for less than $5 at the Riveria. The Riveria is also famous for their 3/4lb hot dog. It is HUGE and only cost a $1.49. If you stay at Westward Ho you can get a cup of coffee for a nickel. You can get a 1/2lb burger and fries at Key Largo for $1.99. And back at the Westward Ho for a drink. You can get a 27oz Margarita for $.99.

GAMBLING- You can play blackjack for a buck a hand at Slots a Fun. The Gold Spike has all sorts of penny and nickel slots for your entertainment. And I always play a game of Texas Hold'em at the Excalibur. They have a 1-3 game that's the lowest in town!

So have fun on your next Las Vegas vacation and remember it doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg.
