I am getting married at the end of July, and the two of us have decided that we would like to go to Las Vegas for our honeymoon. In an effort to keep as much of our savings account intact as possible, we have also decided to be a little bit thrifty on this trip. Our thinking is that it would be better to spend a moderate amount on a honeymoon and have a rather nice chunk of money in savings, rather than to go all out on the honeymoon and start our married life off broke.
After doing a lot of looking online, we have booked a room in what appears to be a reasonably nice hotel for only $35 per night. This hotel is downtown, rather than on The Strip. It is my understanding that we can pay $1 and take a short bus ride to the strip to bask in the opulence there.
Many of the shows and attractions in Vegas have high price tags associated with them, and we don’t really feel like spending $50 to watch some cheesy show. So, what I am looking for here are suggestions of things to do and see in Vegas that will not break the bank. Things like cheap steak buffets after 1 a.m., shows that are cheap because the dancers aren’t particularly attractive, etc…
Sure, we could spend a lot more money and have the typical Vegas experience, but we don’t really feel like doing that. So, any and all suggestions about what to do and see when a couple wants to experience Vegas on the cheap would be appreciated.
I almost forgot to mention - we are driving to Vegas, so we will have a car available to drive anywhere that may not be within walking/bus distance.
