Children are not allowed in casinos, even in Las Vegas. It is illegal. It's just that some establishments (Bellagio, not going for the family crowd anyway) police this, and others (Excalibur) do not. I lived in Vegas for six months in 2000, accounting for my semi-expertise. It is a decidedly odd place.
That depends how you look at it. Children of any age can walk through casinos, and whilst they may not be hanging out, a slow trot through the tables is enough to make their presence widely known. Even if there is a law NO casinos enforce it as people usually have to cross the floor to get to their rooms. matadorpoeta
- I agree with pkincy that the Wynn is an excellent hotel with a much more mature demographic and a more mature price as well! Not to mention their pool is a European/topless pool. My boss played water polo with two topless Swiss models last time he stayed there
Unfortunately it is not directly on the strip but a 5-minute cab ride can fix that. The Bellagio and the Venetian are ok, but I really like Caesar's as it is so enormous and has several good restaurants/clubs. As far as going out goes, just don't get caught in traps like Body English @ the Hard Rock or the two clubs at the Palms unless you know someone and can avoid the lines which otherwise you may find yourself waiting in for up to 3 hours (if you are stupid enough to do so of course
). And for the reasons you complained of before absolutely DO NOT stay at Hard Rock or Palms unless you are solely going there for the night to pick up a lovely lass (most beautiful girls are at these two hotels/their clubs), but alas, with them brings thousands of guys in bootcut jeans, untucked stipey shirts, gelled hair, Doc Martens, and pukka shell necklaces. I assume this is not your crowd.
