Affordable Las Vegas Does Not Have To Be Cheap

Vacation time is coming up! It's around the corner and you are about to stress out about your ability to pay for a getaway. Traveling can be expensive and the hidden costs of going away are almost always just enough to keep you at home when you know you want to pack an overnight bag and get a little rest and relaxation. When you consider how little of your paycheck is left after taking care of all the responsibilities you are faced with the difficult question.

Can I Plan An Affordable Vacation?

Let me put things into perspective. If you want a beach the Mandalay Bay Hotel has one. If you want go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, Paris Las Vegas has an elevator for that. You need a picture with the Statue of Liberty, The Sphinx, A Castle or Julius Caesar? Las Vegas has all that for a fraction of the cost it would take you to travel to those locations. It's not the same, right?

Let me give you an example of affordability. The Tropicana Hotel recently renovated their hotel, the pool, the casino, the restaurants and you can stay there mid week during the summer for less than $60 per night. The pool is worth it alone but examine the idea that you get a great Las Vegas strip location along with a pool that will easily allow you some time for relaxation. On the corner of Las Vegas Blvd. and Tropicana you get access to 7 resorts with low cost food options, cheap entertainment and plenty of Las Vegas action.

Traveling with the family? The Flamingo Las Vegas has new rooms, a family pool and affordable food options. With a center strip location you can get to everything conveniently and you do not have to spend your rent money just to getaway.

You can plan acheap vacation in Las Vegas with a little help. Sure, you might be going a little cheap but I'm thinking a budget vacation is better than no vacation at all.
