One of the best things I’ve ever done is travel to Las Vegas. I have been going there regularly for over a decade now. The first time I graced Vegas was in a motor home but the first time I went with a friend we stayed at the Flamingo. Like I said, I have been going for over a decade and I have stayed in numerous locations. Most recently I stayed at the Bellagio but I’ve also stayed at the Venetian, Ceasers Palace, Golden Nugget and hopefully one day soon I’ll be at the Wynne. I wrote a couple of blogs this year on Las Vegas. One I wrote was on Downtown Vegas and the other about the famous Las Vegas Strip. You can read either of those in my blog by clicking the highlighted links above. If you want superb Vegas deals I have them for you below. Take it from me, I love Vegas so I love these deals!

Now what would traveling be without traveling in comfort? When you do hit the blue highway you may want take one of the most frequently sold items for travel that is out there. You may be wondering what that is? Well it’s the travel pillow. Below you can find some amazing deals on travel pillows!

Also if you are traveling you may want some earphones for the flight. I know when I travel I always use my Beats by Dre headphones but at the end of the day any noise cancelling headphones work for those loud flights.

Downtown Vegas



Vegas Baby! So in my last blog I talked about a few Casinos I have been to on the strip in Las Vegas. Now everything changes and I will talk about downtown Vegas!

When you arrive in Vegas you will exit the airport and the chances are you will see a line-up of taxi’s and limo’s that will bring you to the hotel that you are staying at. To get from the airport to downtown Vegas is about 10-15 minutes and about $60 if you take a limo. I always take a limo from the airport because of its convenience. It also feels great pulling up to your hotel in a nice limo.

FREEMONT STREET EXPERIENCE

Now you are in downtown Vegas, what are the casinos here and what are they like you may ask. When you arrive in the downtown you will more than likely be at a casino that exits onto Freemont Street. You want to see the Freemont Street experience, that is one of the reasons to stay downtown.

What to do when you are in downtown Vegas? When you are here you will notice that compared to “the strip” you are going to have lower bet limits. When you walk through Freemont Street you will have the entrances to all the casinos on the strip and these casinos usually have half dressed women dealing cards or serving drinks to attract the people into the casino. The games are played a lot smaller and slower here as well.

So now you are in the Freemont area and you want to eat right? Where are you going to eat here? Well you could have a couple of places to eat and it all depends on what you want to eat. Back in 2009 I played the Binion’s Poker Classic Main Event and before I played I had to eat some breakfast, which I did at the Golden Nugget. I have eaten their a number of times now and its all good. I’ve had the steak and eggs and the bacon and eggs with hash browns so either is really good and portion sizes are great.

If you are looking for a buffet downtown you will want to check out the buffet at the Freemont. This buffet is called the Paradise Buffet & Cafe, it is amazing. When you go there you will notice they have everything on there buffet. You will also not be disappointed in your selection or the price. This has to be one of the cheapest and best buffets I have ever been to.

Now that we have talked about to of the Casinos to eat at you will probably want to go to the Binion’s Horseshoe Casino. This Casino is the poker holy grail and it has a number of restaurants in it as well. You can eat at the diner on the casino floor and that is fine but you may want some other types of food. When I was there a few years ago they had an all you can eat ribs option in one of there other restaurant and it was $12.99 so that is a pretty good option as well.

The poker room at the Binion’s is great but the limits are small. It is pretty good to play there if you want to play something like 1-2 NL which you will probably find at least one table game. Now if you are looking for tournaments though you are going to like this place. Honestly I have to say they have the best run tournaments in Vegas. I have played here a number of times and every time I am never disappointed with anything. The blind levels increase and starting chips are ratio’d perfectly at this casino. I have also never had a problem with any of the dealers, they have all been great.

I hope you enjoy your stay or visit to downtown Vegas. If you want to here more about Vegas or any other destination check out one of my other blogs. Don’t forget to check out my Facebook Page and Twitter account.  Happy Travels!
