LAS VEGAS, best place on Earth. Posted on August 10, 2022 by Anonymous What should I do while I'm there? Planning to go alone, maybe stay there for a couple of days or a week.
What do you like? Fine dining or cheap eats? Gambling or sitting by the pool? 5 star retail shopping or cheap souvenirs?
should have included your interests in the OP, as to not create a guessing game on what you like m8.
Do the zipline at Fremont street and bungee jump off the stratosphere if you're an adrenaline junkie. Lots of good places to eat at if your a foodie. Other than that just get drunk and gamble.
the zipline at the Rio is better
I did the ziplining at Fremont st - not worth it in my opinion.
not worth goint vro unless you have a strong urge to throw your money into the trash. The entire strip is the same thing they all have buffets they all have slots and they all have expensive ass drinks. Dont waste your time or money. There are some fancy shows and places to eat but alone kinda wack to do that
Literally the only thing good in Vegas are the craps tables
That & food. Other than that, enjoy beige stucco strip malls.
these guys get it.
Maybe the Hoover Dam as well.
if you go alone- you will be bored in 48-72 hours..
I've been to Vegas 40+ times, almost always solo. It's a great place to travel solo. You can get a seat at the bar at almost every restaurant, from diner to high end steakhouse. Many bars are open all day and people are generally on vacation so they're in a good mood and it's easy to meet people and talk to strangers. There are tons of shows and most big bands will come through on their tours. I'm going back the first week of football season, it's going to be a great vibe on the strip.
I'll see you there my friend. UFC 279 and NFL week 1
For me it's Interpol and NIN. Going to be a great week.
You should try Bangkok. No gambling, but it has other perks. I go solo.
No passport, but could get one. I do Vegas b/c it's so close, I'm in CA and it's a 1 1/2 hour flight, usually under $200. And being in a rewards program the rooms are free or ridiculously cheap too. Trip overhead is ultra low so I can spend cash on the fun parts of the trip.
I've also been rec'd Macau but with all the lockdowns over there seems risky. No way in hell I want to get locked down in fucking China.
Pinball Hall of Fame. Bring a ton of quarters.
Battlefield Vegas. Rent some guns from your favorite FPS and lay waste to paper targets.
Freemont Street. It's gross and there's a chance you're gonna see people fight each other in a drunken brawl
I would like to check out Omega Mart at some point
omega mart is awesome. seriously one of the coolest places I've ever been. very interesting lore
seconding Pinball Hall of Fame
I've never been, but Golden Tiki sounds cool
How are the brothels? Is it cheaper than flying to europe and paying hundreds for the girls there?
It's cheaper to not be an incel loser simping for diseased whores in other countries. Try improving yourself before it's too late
Gay moron here to police the white dicks. Watch out.
Ignorant incel detected
>diseased whores in other countries
Uh, sweety, they are called sex workers.
There aren't any in Las Vegas. Only in the sparsely populated areas on Nevada.
Try Bangkok. You might like it.
they are very expensive compared to the Eurowhores.
This, you could probably fly to another country and fuck whores for a week and fly back for the price of getting laid 2-3 times in Nevada plus you won't get GFE.
What's the best Euro country for cheapest Eurowhores?
Legal brothels in Nevada are something like $800/hr for an attractive woman. They get porn stars visiting sometimes. I would never pay for that but plenty of guys do
Bro literally just dress well, go to any casino bar and get drunk and chat up MILFs and college sluts. Any 'girls trip' has multiple women who go to Vegas looking to get plowed
Why would anyone pay $150 a night and $20 drinks just to try to have meaningless sex with some repulsive diseased americow?
Better than sitting around in your mom's basement, playing COD and wacking off to anime girls like you do every night.
playing cod sounds comfy
Gay moron here also takes issue with men meeting normal women on vacation to fuck. This moron is desperate to sequester all the white cock for himself.
>implying I pay for any of it
>Bro literally just dress well, go to any casino bar
Don't do this because hookers will see you as a mark. They look for guys to try and get you to take them your room where they will try to drug and/or rob you. I'd say try clubs but whenever I go the M:F ratio is too fucked. You might have better luck.
>Every single hotel in vegas on the strip charges a resort fee. You can't avoid them.
If you have a high enough tier with the casino/hotel, you don't have to pay them.
Anon the nogs stay at Cosmo and Wynn now. They stink the place up with their weed and ruin everything with their shitty rap music. It's nothing like pre COVID. You can't avoid them. I guess you can thank Spirit for this with their $20 round trip flights to and from their nests.
Wtf I love diseased whores now
>hookers will see you as a mark. They look for guys to try and get you to take them your room where they will try to drug and/or rob you.
I'm a 40 yo balding fat guy, college girls consider me "creepy"
Then just go for divorcées and wine aunts dude, plenty of those to be found.
My man here’s got it.
but i'm not attracted to them, i'm like leonardo dicaprio i lose my boner when they turn 25.
Minoxidil and gym, maybe? Idk, I still get women in their twenties on Tinder and I'm 39.
Any strip club recommendations? I’ve been to Deja Vu and Treasures. Also, any recommendations for getting an escort without getting scammed?
First of all, go in october. The weather is perfect. You can hike Red Rock. And rent a car.
Second of all, dont go to a brothel. In vegas, we get handjobs at massage parlors. $40 for /30 minutes at the door and $40 for a handjob. A lot of the best food is on w spring mountain too. All the asian food is amazing, hachi, ichiza, viet noodle house, Ramen Sora, Osaka. All really fucking good.
Dont stay at Circus Circus, gold stratosphere, anywhere on fremont street, any random hotel off the strip (especially on the east side of town) excalibur, the Orelans or the Oya under any circumstance. The nastiest hotels in vegas are freemont and pretty much everything on Tropicana blvd in both directions.
Do Stay at Bellagio, Caesars, Planet Hollywood, Venetian, Aria, or wynn.
For stuff to do, area15 was rad. They had a crazy steampunk, alice in wonderland dance party going on at night. rooftop bars are fun. walking on fremont street is awesome at night, especially on weekends when free bands play at night.
Angel Park Gold Course is fucking great. You can get a tee time for less than $20. The cloud 9 course is amazing.
>dont go to a brothel
Too risky. Stings and cops everywhere. Only Nevada brothels are legal.
im currently looking to travel to vegas but dont want to pay out the ass for hotels and their resort fees.
whats wrong with excalibur ? it seems to be on the strip, and not cheap
Excalibur is run down. It was cool 30 years ago. Eventually they'll tear it down and build a new casino that isn't a theme place.
doesn't look run down from the pictures or reviews
stop telling people to pay 400 a night for a fucking hotel
I wouldn't pay 400 a night but I'm not staying at Excalibur. Stay at the linq or flamingo or Westgate for $130/night with fees includes
Excalibur is gross. The entire hotel reeks of mildew. And it's the smokiest casino on the strip. The rooms haven't been updated in 30 years. Only mexicans and Black folks stay there, so you have a good chance of getting a room next to a fucking loud ass bunch of nogs and kids. And the pool sucks. It's like an apartment complex pool with room for 30 peole, but in a hotel of 3000 rooms. Every single hotel in vegas on the strip charges a resort fee. You can't avoid them.
When are you going? I'll find you a deal. If you need a cheap room and you have a car, the Rio is going to be a better option than Excalibur. It's quiet, no lines, a good rooftop bar.
Treasure Island would be ok. not great, but ok. Planet Hollywood is the best deal going. Tons of good little place to grab food, a great pool, a mall inside, nice rooms and centrally located on the strip.
You basically just described America, an expensive run down shithole filled with shit people

one of the nice things about vegas, and the us, is that we are very segregated. If you have the dough, you can stay in a hotel that the nogs can;t afford and you can live in an area without nogs and Mexicans. If you came to the US and got the impression that it was ghetto, you're likely poor and you didn't get to experience the perks. If you're poor, you eat KFC with the nogs. Come back when you can afford better
They are everywhere now which you would know if you ever left mummies basement
Man you have NOT been to Vegas post-lockdown. Like, at all.
I keep seeing this meme on sighsee and it's completely untrue
>If you have the dough, you can stay in a hotel that the nogs can;t afford and you can live in an area without nogs and Mexicans. If you came to the US and got the impression that it was ghetto, you're likely poor and you didn't get to experience the perks
Yeah and are you meant to pay for a different Las Vegas Strip? Because f you walk up it now you will see shit that you will not see in Downtown LA, it has gone to fucking hell and you obviously aren't aware of current reality
No. You literally can’t. Even Chelsea NY is now 5% black. It was like 1% in the 90s.
>you can't avoid blacks
Leave any major city. That's all you have to do. Blacks don't go too far. Leaving the ghetto is "across town" and they'll protest about having to make such a trip, let alone having to go to the boondocks.
Can't avoid them on the strip but you can stay at one of the nicer casinos and not run into them.
Those that you might find in such places are not ghetto enough to worry about.
Hes obviously "working" this board like a "prostitute".
When are you going? I'll find you a deal.
How bout you come suck my dick at the excalibur? Nah, just kidding. Vegas is chock full of meth head zombies and morons but pimped by Utah Mormons. True story. Have fun on yur shit "vacation". I seriously gave a guy a fiver so he could afford gas to light his roach motel on fire the last time I(unfortunately) was there. I got back to the spot and watched it on the morning news. Seriously fuck vegas but it was bad ass all the way into the late 80's
>Every single hotel in vegas on the strip charges a resort fee. You can't avoid them.
Not Best Western at Casino Royale
You don't got to vegas and stay in a best western motel at the most rundown third-rate casino on the strip. Let's say you meet a girl. "Hey you want to come back to my motel? I can clear some of the roaches off the bed and make room for you."
Are there any strip hotels that don't charge resort fees? That shit infuriates me. I'll pay an extra $50 in nightly rate if I can avoid the $40 per night in resort fees
>I'll stay a week
Do not stay a week. Honestly don't stay more than 48 hours, especially if you plan to get shitfaced and seek out hookers and drugs. You'll be burned out by day 2 and want to leave Vegas forever
Would itr be autistic to do a FNV LasVegas trip? Stop in all the small towns on the courier route?
Small towns in Nevada are more depressing than you can imagine. Casinos, liquor stores, fast food, nothing else
I mean the game he's talking about is based on the idea of nuclear apocalypse so...
It's autistic yes but the locals in these places have come to expect this tourism because you're not the first to do this, there's autists visiting goodsprings every weekend.
Also no fast food, there's not even that in most of these little places. Bars yes. Abandoned trailers yes.
I'd be interested in doing the same if I was ever in the area. Vegas itself doesn't really interest men, other than seeing how degenerate it really is.
Small towns in Nevada are the most depressing places on earth. Total burnouts and dregs of society living in campers so they can smoke meth all day and not be harassed.
There are some rad things to do in vegas off the strip. Red Rock Canyon is amazing. Mount Charleston has some good hiking trails. The grand canyon is worth driving out to. You can rent a boat at Willow beach and cruise up the river to the hot springs and the canyons. If you're into skateboarding, there are like a dozen free 24 hour lit skateparks around Las Vegas. You can golf th Cloud 9 gold course at Angel Park for $20. You can go do the Omega Mart interactive art installation. There are also about 100 bands in town playing shows every night. The food off strip is amazing too. Those god damn Ramen places in China town are fucking amazing.
fly into vegas in october, rent a car, drive 2 1/2 hours to Zion National Park. Stay there instead and hike for a week.
Hiking is fucking retarded. Why do zoomers all love walking up a hill for 4 hours
Not everyone is a porn addict loser like you
Because the view from up here is better than standing in line with 200 Black folks and hispanics to get all you can eat 3 week old fried chicken at the Excalibur casino.
Oh look what time it is coomer, time for that basket of consequences
>Go to fremont strip for cheap gambling. I'm talking $1 blackjack and $5 craps on weekdays
>Spend one dinner at a fancy 5 star restaurant but most of your food should be at some highly rated $10-$30 range restaurants that on and off strip
>Women here are very "loose" on vacation so you got high odds but if you strike out prostitution soliciting is illegal BUT escorting is LEGAL in Vegas.
>Federal Assault Weapons Ban expired and Nevada took advantage. many gun ranges cater to those movie watcher or video gamers who wanted to fire a .50 cal sniper or ak-47
>Never spend a dime on booze. If you sit at a slot machine and tip the waitress well enough she'll come around very frequently. I dropped about $100 in the slot but drank about $500 worth of liquor
I'm planning on going in January any good budget hotels, I'm not someone that gives much of a shit about accommodations.
Give $10-$30 range restaurant recs
Strip is extremely overrated if you're not staying at an expensive luxury hotel. Stay downtown, it's more fun and costs 60% as much for a comparable room
Nothing on the strip in the $10-30 range is good, unless it's In and Out burger at the Linq. Eat at the Asian places on west spring mountain.
If I had to stay somewhere on an a budget, Id book MGM Signature Suite through Travelocity. $100/night, lower resort fee, Nice rooms, nice casino, perfect location on the strip.
I found a pretty good hotel deal off of the strip, it's a short walk away. Also I definitely check out the Asian places on west spring mountain.
Where did you book? There is no short walk off the strip in vegas.
Not that anon, but hooters, westgate, and Ellis island (shithole) are short walks to strip. There’s also another one on flamingo whose name escapes me.
Hooters hasnt existed in years dude. It's called OYO now.
Yeah , you’re right. And I’ve even been there a few times recently kek. The Westin is the place I was thinking of on flamingo
Gold coast, a 20 minute walk is nothing.
Actually, I like the Gold Coast. Definitely eat the Dim Sum at Ping Pang Pong. You'll know it's good by the size of the line outside. And my favorite cheap place to eat in the whole city is nearby, the mother fucking SHISH KABOB HOUSE. Order the Chicken Lula Kabob. The Gold Coast also has a good cheap bowling alley.
Protip: There is a free shuttle to the strip at the Gold Coast. You don't need to walk. Also, Rio has a free shuttle. Or even better, just take the bus for $1 because it runs every 10 minutes.
Here's the best advice you'll get. If you're staying for a week, take out $100 bill and hand it to the clerk as they're checking you in and say "Would you be able to give me an upgrade for my room?"
It works about 50 percent of the time. They gave us a penthouse suite at the Rio for that trick.
I'm only staying for like 5 days so I'm not sure if the room upgrade tip will work. I'll def take the shuttle though. I may consider renting a car since I kind of want to go to the Hoover Dam.
>west spring mountain
The amount of those places that have been shut down due to health code violations is disturbing though
Hash house a go go is dope, would probably be more like 35 after tax and tip. Great breakfast spot
Been gone all summer abroad, is 35$ really the going rate for breakfast these days in America? Thanks Biden
>prostitution soliciting is illegal BUT escorting is LEGAL in Vegas.
Any tips for finding a good "escort"?
Best thing is to get fucked up during the day but stay in your hotel after dark. The streets are packed with crazies and the police have given up at this point.
Any recommended fine dining for my gf's birthday? Asian, Italian, something around that.
She wanted to do a spa day, so I'm also looking into places for that
The Italian place at The D is real good. So is Lavo at Palazzo/Venetian, forget which one.
anybody else going to see gavin mcinnes and Anthony cumia in vegas on sept 10th???
What's a can't miss cheap eats place near the strip? I don't mind spending 25 but not trying to have a 5 star meal that costs 150
The magic noodle on Fort Apache it’s the first stop everytime when I get into Vegas
Fort Apache is nowhere near the strip
Still worth it but that’s why it’s the first stop I do as soon as we gmleave the airport
Las Vegas somehow feels modern but also like a wild west town at the same time.
How much does a beer at a bar cost there?
Third worldie here. I'm going to Vegas in a month.
Free if you're gambling. The trick is to not lose money before your drink arrives.
Other than that it depends a lot on where you go. If its some bougie place $10. Some of the locals casinos run specials though where decent beers are like $2. So in that range. Yes that's more than the $0.50 I paid for beer in Panama.
Ah, thanks for the advice.
One of the best things in Vegas is just walking the strip trying to take in the sensory overload and for that I recommend a Fat Tuesday you get a huge sugary slurpy filled with alcohol for a reasonable price
If you want to drink for cheap, go downtown to fremont street. The plaza hotel has microbrews for $1.50 every day of the week. You can also buy beer at the liquor store, pour it into a red cup and walk around and drink.
I pour my booze into those coffee cups and throw the lid on it. It's how I get liquor into the pool areas that don't let you bring in your own.
Anyone ever eat at the steakhouse at Treasures? Seen mixed reviews, but the novelty of eating a fancy steak dinner with strippers seems fun.
Just booked a last minute trip. Was supposed to go camping in the sierras but it gonna be too hot. So Vegas and Imagine Dragons it is!
I'm going with my girlfriend in October.
What are some must see restaurants?
The problem with eating on the strip is that rent is insane for the restaurants. So everything is a tourist trap. They dont have to be remotely good because they know you'll never come back. You pay $100 for 2 bowls of microwaved soup and some frozen chicken wings at the Gordon Ramsey Pub. The actual good places on the strip like le Cirque at Bellagio will run $400 for a meal. Look up steakhouses in Vegas on Trip Advisor and there are a ton, and every one on the strip will empty your fucking bank account. And that's why everyone just goes to the AYCE buffets. You can get legit Prime Rib at the Paris buffet with homemade Crepes and spend like $150 for 2 people. But it's loud as fuck, the line is insane, and you'll be crammed into a giant room with 10,000 tourists. It's worth doing maybe once. Honestly, the best value for AYCE is probably Fogo De Chao, but you can get that anywhere.
So, you have to get off the strip. Chinatown on Spring Mountain is the tits.Hachi, Ichiza, Viet Noodle House, Le thai. Every Ramen place on that street is amazing. Vegas has good NY pizza joints. Go to In and Out burger.
Thanks for the write up man.
I expect to get fucked but really only want to spread my cheeks for one or two serious dinners, something French or seafood.
I was looking at the buffets, there was one w/ lobster that I need to go to. blanking on the name now. Will go to one of those ramen places absolutely. In and Out burger is maybe my gf biggest motivator for going kek while I wanna go on IRL New Vegas tour.
Bellagio has good seafood for the dinner and sometimes on the weekends for a holiday brunch, but you should get there early for dinner and line up. That line can get fucking nuts. Paris and Mandalay Bay both have really good dinner buffets with crab legs and prime rib. The crepe station puts Paris over the top though. Mandalay is a little more quiet inside and not as cramped though.
Don't do the Rio seafood buffet. It was good 15 years ago, but not anymore.
Everyone fucking loves the Eataley food court in park MGM, but I haven't been, so I won't vouch for it. But put that on your list.
The Paris buffet hasn't reopened since covid started. Been closed for like 27 months now. Back in the day, when I'd go to Vegas at least once a year, I always made sure to visit the Paris "brunch" buffet, that was only available on Saturdays and Sundays. Was phenomenal. Each station had a chef preparing eggs/breakfast food according to the customs of a different region of France.
Other than that, the shit I do every time I go to Vegas:
>Hash House a Go-Go: Best breakfast option for what's open. At the LInq.
>Michael Jackson Cirque du Soleil show: It's the best show in Vegas. I've even gone to it alone - it's that good.
>Gordon Ramsey Pub (inside Caesars) or Hells Kitchen (outside near the entrance): Largely the same menu. Just order the "4 course meal" and pick the beef wellington.
Ive lived in southern California for the past 13 years. I go to vegas like 4 times a year to hang out wit my best friend. Of the 100's of places Ive tried, The Gordon Ramsey Pub was one of the absolute worst. Maybe the worst. There is a psychological phenomenon where people are more likely to say they like something if they pay too much for it.
>There is a psychological phenomenon where people are more likely to say they like something if they pay too much for it.
There is also another unfortunate phenomenon where people are more like to say they like something, even paying extra for it, if a famous person is endorsing it.
I don't think I would ever dine at a Gordon Ramsay restaurant unless Gordon Ramsay himself was cooking my meal. I would even take a different chef who has worked with him closely, maybe even one more degree of separation. I just wouldn't want to pay out the ass for a subpar meal that was made by Josh the part-time stoner, or Miguel who gets paid in cash.
>tfw there is a Kitchen Nightmares episode where Gordon didn't cook anything at all, but plated something for a customer
>it's Kitchen Nightmares, so it isn't even his restaurant, let alone a cuisine of his usual expertise
>the customer's eyes immediately light up at the thought of Gordon fuckin' Ramsay personally preparing a meal for her
How is the Trump hotel?
For the hotel itself, it's nice. For everything else, there's no casino, restaurants, and is slightly off strip so it's a walk to get to and from.
Las Vegas is absolute fucking shit. So if that is the best place on this shithole planet in this disgusting universe, I give up. Is it possible to travel to other dimensions instead, somehow? The only thing that interests me these days, besides travelling the world hoping to find an earthly utopia somewhere, is that NDEs are real.
Of course, nothing, gets normies and NPCs more uncomfortable and/or riled up than the idea that near-death experiences are ACTUALLY real, and that there is good reason to think that they are and that we should take them seriously.
Here is an extremely persuasive argument for why near-death experiences (NDEs) are real:
It makes a huge deal about the fact that near-death experiencers (NDErs) are representative of the population as a whole, and that when people go deep into the NDE, they all become convinced. As this article points out:
>"Statistics collected ... show that ... among those with the deepest experiences ... 100 percent came away agreeing with the statement, "An afterlife definitely exists"."
Since NDErs are representative of the population as a whole, and they are all convinced, then 100% of the population become convinced that there is an afterlife when they have a sufficiently deep NDE themselves. The NDE is VASTLY more self-evidently real than this puny little experience of life on Earth we have now. When you dream and wake up, you immediately realize that life is more real than your dream. When you have an NDE, the same thing is happening, but on a higher level, as you immediately realize that life is the deep, deep dream and the NDE world is the real world.
Needless to say, even physicians, neuroscientists, and psychiatrists are convinced by their NDEs.
Man, I really hope there are other dimensions to travel to.
FFS dude take your schizo meds you're scaring the neighbors.
I have no desire to go to Las Vegas. I do my cooming in Latin America and SEA. Gambling is dumb
Whatever you do, do not call any service from the flyers they hand out on the street. Take my word for it. 2 days? Gamble, eat, drink walk around, shop. A week? Not much different. Personally, I don't go out at night. It used to be fun but there are so many drunk chicks and aggressive wannabe chads that it can be a recipe for disaster. Fine if you're staying in business class and up, the drunk weekend warriors stick to coach class garbage casinos. But be careful and aware if you're out at night. If you want a call-girl but don't want to call a call girl, stick to the big bar at the Hard Rock or one of the main bars at Caesars - they'll find you, if you're not a disgusting pig.
Just take it easy. Don't gamble. Have a few cocktails at the pool. Go to bed early.
