Well I would rep you again for this 2nd post, Johnny, but can't.

I will add one small detail - Allegiant Air frequently has good deals on flights from small towns to Vegas and other vacation spots. They *don't* serve the big markets, although you can get to them by driving out of town to a smaller airport - this may or may not be worth the bother.

I personally agree on the LDW on rental cars, but that's just my opinion, not some sort of revealed wisdom...

A hotel in your City that has "breakfast" inclued in the going room rate..
that called a staycation.....

If you have a "county park" or a "state park" in your home town , try a
weekend of local camping , you will save a big wad of money by making
your own food , and camp sites are really a bargain....

A road trip to visit your relative that are shattered all across the country
, you stay free in their's homes , this is a African American old stand bye.

Cruise Ships are a bargain that no one should every over "look" especially
those low priced 2 or 3 days cruises.

Default As for Las Vegas

Here, in Las Vegas, a big convention in town will automatically raise the rates for that period of time, any time of the year. But that applies to any city.

We currently have a huge convention in town here until Friday, some 100,000 plus participants.

In planning your trip here, check to see what conventions are being held here, and at what times of the year. It also effects rental car rates.
