We got married at the Excalibur in May of 2000. It is really nice there. Especially if you like the whole medieval theme. They have a great buffet there too. Approx. $10. per person if I remember right. Rooms are very nice also.
This year we are going back to Vegas in mid-June and looking into the Alladdin Hotel. It is a step up from the Excalibur in price, hopefully we will like it. We walked through a lot of the hotels on the strip and they are amazing. This will be our 4th trip (may 2000 was the 1st).
I would HIGHLY recommend the Fremont Street Experience.
It is AMAZING.
It is every hour for 10-15 minutes on the hour. There is a great place to get huge, potent
, dacquari's/margaritas in one of 20+ flavors. There are street shows and show girls that you can take your picture with.
The lions at MGM are great. At that or the Mirage they had guys in the glassed in area with them and they were batting a ball around. It was really cute!! Bellagio is so extravagant you will be blown away. Ceasar's Palace and the Shoppes there are all sites to see. The paintings and designs of these places are sooooooo awesome. I just can't say it enough.
And there is always something to do, 24/7. It's free to look at everything and that alone is entertainment enough.
We would be so exhausted from walking around
, YOU DO NEED COMFY SHOES, that we would go back to our hotel and go downstairs and play nickel slots and drink free for hours.
Downtown on Freemont Street there is a place called the Golden Gate something. From midnight to 6 am or so you get steak and eggs for about $3.00!!!
And it is great food!! Don't miss that!!
House of Blues food was not real good, don't waste your $.
The shoppes in the Desert Passage next to Alladdin are nice, I found a lotta things there I liked.
I plan to start using the treadmill as soon as I kick this cold I have been fighting for the last 3 weeks to get used to walking a lot. You will do a LOT of walking no matter what you do.
The Luxor does have some great things to look at.
The Shark thing at the Mandalay Bay did not impress me. Didn't see any big sharks and was just not worth $$$. It's not cheap.
