Tix4Tonight has several Vegas locations and offers same day half-price tickets to many Vegas shows. You won't find tickets there for the top-tier shows (Cirque du Soleil, etc.) but many of the second-tier shows are still very good. Try to read reviews of the shows on-line before you get there and have a list of second-tier shows you might want to see. You just may be able to get tickets to them at Tix4Tonight. I believe their offices open at 10 AM, and of course the better shows sell out fast.

Many of the hotels also offer a "VIP Customer" status at a modest charge that allows you expedited check-in, greatly discounted tickets for shows in their facility, etc. You may want to check if Caesar's does something like that... it generally has to be arranged prior to check-in.

Have fun!

"Supposedly" when checking into the hotel, if you hand the reservation agent a $20 bill along with your credit card, and ask if any room upgrades are available, you'll get a great upgrade 95% of the time! This is supposed to 'work' at most of the hotels; the website did say that a couple of hotels had told their employees to stop doing the upgrades, but that sometimes the employee would go ahead and do it.

Make sure to check out restaurant.com for some good restaurant deals. When the promo codes are running, you can get a $25 certificate for as little as $2. Have fun at Ceasars. That place is so big you may want to bring a compass

Oh and if you're a drinker and gamblerr, make sure to tip the floor waitress a little extra the first time around and she'll be back quite often with those free drinks!
