Nights out in Las Vegas are pretty special any night of the year, but as you would expect from this glitzy party city, New Years Eve is something else!

There are so many shows on over the New Years period it is a good idea to go to one of the show guide websites such as www.VegasView.com, so that you can scan through all the choices and make reservations on the ones you are interested in to avoid disappointment. Some shows tipped to be sold out quickly this year include the Cirque du Soleil “O” show at the famous Bellagio Hotel, and the Mama Mia show at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. Also there is also a rumour going around that Britney Spears might be doing some special Las Vegas come back shows around this New Years time.

When you live in a city with topnotch hotels and malls where luxury shopping is the main event, it’s easy to drain out your bank account. For example, Mojitos in Miami can cost as much as $15, and if you’re a Mojito-lover, you’ll know how fast you can blow off your salary. There are ways for you to dodge the spender’s traps, though. For example, if you must have a Mojito after work, you can stick to places with Happy Hour specials.

Even if you’re just traveling to these cities, you should take the time to do the math. It might take some of the fun out of traveling, but it’ll keep your budget (and sanity) intact. Below are the most expensive cities in America to watch out for and what you should expect from them before you purchase your plane ticket.

1. Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas

While Las Vegas is not commonly considered a cheap place to go, hotels there are actually extremely cheap. See most hotels in Vegas make all or most of their money from gambling, so they keep their hotel rates very affordable. Plus, they want you to stay in the area of the hotel, so most of the restaurants and shops near the strip are actually quite cheap. In fact, if you are a regular gambler, you can actually travel to Vegas and stay for free, as many hotels will pay airfare and lodging just to have you come play their tables for a while.

Thinking of finding that special someone but tired of going to regular places where you can meet people? Perhaps you can start trying at airports. For a place that supposedly connects one place to another, airports can also bring two people together. Instead of boring yourself waiting in that lounge for your plane, why not strike a conversation with that interesting-looking traveler? Maybe you are bound for the same direction, perhaps even sharing the same flight. All the better—you can continue your friendship in that foreign country the two of you will be visiting. And what better way to get to know someone that by being strangers in a foreign country?


Las Vegas – New Year 2011

Las Vegas is one of the biggest party cities in the world, and a perfect destination for a really exciting and special New Years Eve. You will never be bored as there are plenty of things to do, from visiting the casinos and dining out, to going to see one of the big Christmas shows, and there are also lots of special New Years Eve parties including the famous street party which takes place on the main strip, which is closed to traffic for the night. The firework extravaganza that takes place at midnight at New Year is typically over the top and mind blowing, and you can see it from almost anywhere in the city, but whilst you are out and about having fun remember to keep things in line as the Las Vega city police maintain a large visible presence on New Years Eve, and are not known for their sense of humour!

When you’re in Sin City, you can naturally get carried away. And why shouldn’t you? With all the light shows and the booze, this seems like a city filled with infinite possibilities—for the weekend anyway, when there are the best Las Vegas shows. However, if you’re really smart, you won’t do anything you’d regret when you’re on your plane ride home.

Getting married and losing more money than you planned are the most obvious no-nos. You’d be surprised though at the common mistakes people do in Las Vegas which made it to our list.

Use the Casino’s ATMs

A surefire way for you to lose money fast in Las Vegas is to use the ATMs located at the Casinos. These things can charge you anything between $2 and $6 per transaction, and what’s worse is they’re legally allowed to charge these fees. It’s close to getting held up, except that you chose to lose that money.
