Tips on Saving Money on Your Las Vegas Vacation

Why Las Vegas?

Las Vegas is one of the largest tourist destinations in the world – attracting over 40 million tourists a year from every country. Each tourist spends, on average, about $1000 dollars each visit, a whopping sum that contributes to the many high rise casino hotels in the city. Las Vegas is a capitalist bastion. Around every corner, large advertisements beckon and people try selling you things you don’t need.

When traveling to Vegas, it often feels like money is wasted left and right. However, if you plan ahead of time, have a well Рdefined itinerary, and follow some of these steps, you can save a lot of money.

Investors have it tough… speculators are everywhere, pointing to positive signs in the economy one day and then predicting doomsday the next.
