    Vegas travel tips-avoid cab ripoff+more

    don't get "longhauled". Happened to me for the first time last year. I just found the receipt, so now I can make a formal complaint

    always say "do NOT take tunnel or freeway"

    here are the average fairs to spots on the strip from the airport

    Taxi Fares From Airport
    Aria $20.20 Luxor $18.25 Riviera $26.80
    Bally's $21.20 Mandalay Bay $20.05 Stratosphere $25.00
    Bellagio $21.95 MGM Grand $16.40 The Linq $21.68
    Caesars $21.20 Mirage $23.65 Treasure Island $25.75
    Circus Circus $28.90 Monte Carlo $20.05 The Venetian $26.45
    Cosmopolitan $22.15 Palace Station $27.63 Wynn Las Vegas $22.00
    Flamingo $19.75 Paris $21.00
    Harrah's $21.20 Rio $25.35

    avoid the lucky cab company at all costs. not so lucky.

    I've read that the westin company is also guilty of this scam

    few other em captain pete's 12 step plan for vegas...

    1-don't hit a 17 ever
    2-never say the word "seven" at a dice table
    3-don't tell me how to play my cards if you are standing behind me
    4-don't take advice from people at dice tables who bet in the middle
    5-you cannot get a good value out of the buffet pass..just heartburn as you eat far more food then you are accustomed to in 24 hours
    6-be sure to eat breakfast at the Pepper mill
    7-See the Mob Museum and Neon Graveyard. Tickets are costly, but so is a losing afternoon at the tables
    8-slots are a sucker game, learn how to play cards. Get a blackjack strategy card($1) and follow it life your life depended on it. You _might_ come away winning a few bucks IF you know when to get off the table
    9-go see a couple of great shows you can get half price tickets for a little wait
    10-bring water with you wherever you go
    11-see as much of "old vegas" as you can. They are evening erasing the memory of elvis these days.
    12-don't forget to tip those taking care of you
