One other warning about walking in Vegas. They say it's a dry heat... true... if you get out of the pool, you'll be dry before you get to your towel. But it's still really frickin hot, especially at the time of year you're going to be there. Good cabbies know how to avoid actually driving on the strip and it's worth a couple extra bucks if the strip is jammed.
