The time change was a killer for me.
Got there on a Thursday at 11 Vegas time, went to bed at 2. Was up looking at the walls at 4:30 a.m. I was exhausted every night by 11. Lookin at walls again at 4.
If you're interested at all in food.
The Paris breakfast buffet ($17.99) is "off the hook." We ate like we were going to the electric chair at 7 a.m. or so. I couldn't eat again until 9 p.m.
The Wynn buffet for dinner ($40) was pretty sick too. I would recommend that as well. King crab, rack of lamb, prime rib, sushi and much much much more.
Those two buffets on day 1 were a big mistake. We ate light meals the rest of the way.
There is a tram that will take you from Bellagio to Aria and vice versa.
IMO no need to go to the Rio unless you are interested in their seafood buffet. I heard that is unreal. A guy at the Venetian said he ate 12 lobster tails. The Voo Doo is pretty cool two, but personally I cringe at paying $8 for Bud Light.
The Palms is cool, but not sure why you would go there unless it was for one of the clubs.
Player cards cross over at many of the casinos. Look at the back of the cards and you'll figure out real quick where you can use them.
Poker Rooms really don't start rolling until about noon. We were on east coast time and struggled to find games at 9 /10 in the morning. Take your time getting over there.
Good Luck, Have Fun and if you think two pair is a good hand you should play a lot of poker before you go out there. It's an important lesson they'll be glad to teach you on the strip.
