I'm leaving Thursday to go to Vegas for a few days for my baby sister's wedding. (Otherwise I wouldn't choose the middle of summer to go there, lol.) I thought I'd try and add a couple caches from there to my list of states. We're staying at the Luxor, so that's the area we'll be in and everything we do will be on foot since we won't be renting a car.

Does anyone have any they could suggest? I've never been to Vegas before, so I completely don't know my way around.... Confused When I type the zip code into the gc.com website and get the map, it means nothing to me, lol.

Having just returned from there, I can tell you almost all the caches on the strip are virtuals. They are interesting. There are a few micro's, but not *all that exciting.* The closest micro to Luxor would be GCW848. This is a fun cache with bugs--GCQ596. On a side note, it will be hot, hot out there!!

Mama FC--we just returned from Vegas on 6/27 and did alot on the strip. I'll re-read our posts and send something by e-mail tomorrow with suggestions. Will you have a car? There are some that are slightly off the strip. Not that far if you enjoy walking in 115 degree heat, but a car would be nicer. Also, we cached well off the strip around Vegas and outside (Red Rock area, etc.). Let me know how much detail you want...we did about 30 caches during our stay.

Thanks for the suggestion and the PM!

I'm totally fine with virtuals. In fact, I really enjoy virtuals! I almost always find them really interesting.

I didn't pick the time to go out there, lol. I definitely would've picked late fall or spring or something MUCH cooler.... But my baby sister got to pick her own wedding date. wink I didn't get much say in that part, lol. According to the weather channel website, we're looking at highs in the 100s, lows in the 80s. Shocked But it's a DRY heat, right?

Woo Hoo! That would be awesome!

We will NOT have a car. We are doing a lot of walking on Friday to see the usual sights - the fountain at the Bellagio, some really big tv screen thingy (Freemont Street), and the neat hotels. I have a list bookmarked that will get printed out before I go and then reviewed on the plane. I was hoping that in 115ºF heat, walking in and out of hotel lobbies would help keep us cooled off a bit. wink

I'll be in touch!

Just thought I'd post a follow-up note - the cache list from Folk Trakers was GREAT! Visiting Vegas is loads of fun, and a couple of those caches took me to places I would'nt have seen otherwise! (My favorite kind of cache!)

However, I wouldn't necessarily recommend Vegas in JULY. 113ºF. At least it's a dry heat. wink

Thanks again Folk Trakers!
