Three days in Vegas. Questions.
My girlfriend and I will be flying to Las Vegas July 15-18, 2015, staying for three nights at the LINQ on Las Vegas Blvd (aka the Strip). We are seeing three shows (one each night): Cirque de Soleil O at the Bellagio and Beatles Love at the Mirage, as well as Terry Fator at the Mirage. This will be my second trip to Vegas, her first. We will not have a car and will be relying on public transit and taxis to get around. We would like to go to the Las Vegas sign, play some minigolf, shop, and are not gamblers. I probably have a lot more questions than I can list here, so here goes.
1. Should I buy monorail and bus passes online before we leave home or wait until we arrive in Las Vegas?
2. We like food such as burgers, steak, Italian, Mexican, and Chinese. Where are good, reasonable (up to $50.00 USD/person) places to eat nearby? I am willing to go downtown around Fremont Street area, for the Fremont Street Experience is said to be a must-see.
3. Any other tips? I know this is very broad.
