Is it necessary to look for a Concierge Service if a person is visiting Las Vegas for the first time?

by kevsmith8181 »

As all of us are aware of the fact that Las Vegas is the hub of entertainment in the world. There are a lot of events and happenings in the city of which a new person is not aware of if he is visiting Las Vegas for the first time. So is it necessary to look for a good concierge service to get the updates and the transportation services in Vegas? If not then what is the second option to look for? All advices are welcome....

Concierges, in many places in the world (including Vegas), will steer you to the places where they get commissions. So no, I don't think it's necessary to use the services of a concierge in Las Vegas. In terms of entertainment, all of the major showss will be listed online and in the paper: go to what interests you. About 80% of them will be discounted at the TixTonight booths one finds along the strip. In terms of "transportation" services: most people stay on The Strip during their time in Vegas. If you'd like to explore more widely (and I'd recommend that, as Red Rock Canyon, the Hoover Dam, the Nuclear Testing Museum and Downtown Las Vegas are well worth a visit, as are other non-Strip attractions), rent a car. Every hotel in Las Vegas provides free parking and its very easy to figure out how to get here and there (or get a GPS device if you're nervous about getting lost; there are apps on your phone that you can also use for that). If you'd rather not drive, know that cabs are plentiful and easier than booking other types of "transportation services". Finally, we have a TERRIFIC new guidebook out called "Frommers EasyGuide to Las Vegas". Its written by a Vegas expert who tells it like it is (and in a very funny way--he's a terrific writer).

I hope this helps. As they say in Vegas: Win Big!

Hi,

First post.  Thanks for allowing me to join the forums.  I am reading a copy of Frommer's Easy Guide to Las Vegas 2015 by Rick Garman.  He writes in a very funny, easy to understand style and the information will be invaluable for my second (and my girlfriend's first) trip to Vegas in 7 weeks, 5 days.
