    much more to see around Vegas than slots. 2 1/2 hr drive gets you to Death Valley, the park systems best kept secret. 1 hr N on I15 is valley of fire with petroglyphs and amazing rock formations.

    On an early flight & want to get a great hearty breakfast. Check out S'Barro's breakfast platter - A generous amount of bacon or sausage patties, eggs, potatoes, biscuit and sausage gravy for $8.99

    The International waiting area for pick-up at terminal 3 has a few power outlets next to the rows of seats. Perfect for charging your phones while waiting for your guests to arrive while sitting.

    If you get a chance come visit downtown Las Vegas and see what the Downtown Project is all about. You might be pleasantly surprised at what's being built - a city as a startup.

    Terminal 3 is such a great difference vs the old terminal. As with any flight, arriving a couple of hours before, will get you in in no time. With a minutes to spare for shopping or a cup of joe :-)

    Love this airport, a lot of places to have fun and spend $ even at the airport 😏 free wifi and a lot of places to charge your device. Clean and workers are nice. What happened at Vegas, stays there.

    Extra time before a flight? Visit XpresSpa in the D terminal, ask for Stanley if you get a massage. Chairs are complimentary for as much time as you wish with purchase of a service.

    Best airport wi-fi HANDS DOWN. Great way to kill time before your flight.Also, get here early, especially if you're flying Southwest (hub) or any airline in Concourse D (except United and Hawaiian)

    Excellent Airport & TSA Check-in!!! Very helpful, fast + take you to front of line if disabled w/o having to ask for assistance. Spotted my cane and presto magic I was whisked away thru security. TY!

    The Coffee Beanery in Terminal C is worth stopping. Generally good coffee and through many layovers here I've found the people who work there to always be pleasant and helpful.

    Bellagio Fountains are the most ambitious, choreographically complex water feature ever conceived. Each dynamic performance from the Fountains collection is unique in its expression & interpretation.

    The only thing that "stays in Vegas" is your $$$... so at least be sure to spend it wisely and have fun at places like @UnionLV @AriaLV @VdaraLV @BellagioLV or @FixLV...great experiences await!

    Very nice, very nice... Returning the rental car, hoping on the shuttle bus, coming to terminal, self served check in, TSA check, and hop on tram to gates, in less than 45 minutes smooth process!

    Rather than taking a cab, take SuperShuttle! I paid $8 from The Flamingo to the airportn one-way! A cab should only be $20 max (with tip) and make sure they don't take the freeway. Enjoy Vegas :)

    Curbside check in is managed by an outside company. If your bags get lost, it's on you (airline can't/won't help). Tip well to ensure your bags make it home. Amazing how many people don't tip!

    You can actually find the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign in light-up smaller form inside the airport. It is located just by the international arrivals area, just behind the butterfly airplane.

    Clean and lives up to all expectations with slot machines and plenty of Frank Sinatra.Give yourself some time when checking out. You need to take a tram. TSA here are bizarrely friendly!

    You can get to the airport in a matter of 10 minutes from your hotel on the strip! Service is quick--they get you in and out with plenty of time to shop and eat before your flight.

    Slot machines welcome you as you get of the plane. Centrally located, very close to Strip. Free shuttles available to/from many hotels. Free wi-fi all in the airport. Expect delays in busy seasons.

    If you're not checking bags, skip the ticket counter and use the universal kiosks to print boarding passes. They're located on the second level of T1 & T3 near the entrances to security. Never a line!

    Hands down best airport in the US. Easy to get through and parking is a breeze. Park in short term at baggage claim level for easy coming and going when picking family and friends.

    You should stay at the Elara Hilton hotel. It's attached to Miracle Shops, which is right on the Las Vegas strip! I stayed there for over 2 weeks & loved it!

    If you're flying out of JetBlue's terminal three, it's much less crowded than the main terminal so you don't need to get here as early. Plus if you have TSApre you'll be through in less than 5 mins.

    Ticketing, luggage check in, and security all take just 15 minutes. It still doesn't disappoint me as the best and comfortable airport I've ever been and North American continent.

    The friendlier u r with the TSA staff and the better attitude u have about the whole process, the better the experience. U can certainly make things easier by arriving early.

    If you have a long layover, go to the new American express centurion lounge. It's amazing. Food and premium booze included on admission. Worth the fifty bucks.

    Taking Lyft/Uber from Terminal 1? Cross bridge to parking lot Level 2M for pickup area. Note this is one level *above* Level 2.

    So apparently you can bring a purse but if you bring a carry on luggage bag its 100 more per person guess that's why they changed to the more marketable name of spirit, used to be prison rape air.

    Great place. Friendly and funny, yet still strict security. The airport employees are good at dealing with inebriated passengers and handled everything quite well.

    Uber picks up in the Valet area which is across from Terminal 3 in the Parking garage. Take the skybridge over and then down to Level 2.

    Good service and fast lane in Inmigration Services. Also very nice people in customs. Taxi is better option than shuttle if you're traveling in 3-4 group

    Get here at least 2 hours before your flight. Vegas is a very busy airport and there are lines. They do their best to get you through quickly, but give yourself time.

    Eat @ Villa Pizza. The #2 is a deep-dish piece of pizza, any side (baked ziti is delish), and a medium drink for less than $10. A double cheeseburger meal @ wendys costs more but is not near as tasty

    Top up your electrical toys at the free charging stations. If you have a plug in charger, look under the seats for 110 V sockets with brass covers plates.

    Love coming in here, hate being here waiting to leave. Slot machines are tight. They have indoor smoking slot gaming areas if you are looking for one. Gate areas are short on normal seats.

    Huge airport, as a gambler nothing better than stepping of the plane straight into a slot machine. Always packed. Lots of good food options, security line still long even with Precheck

    There are outlets in the floor every so often if you need to power up. The Starbucks by CPK has dirty tables, but a great view to the Allegiant Air gates (spot the Blue Man Group plane!)

    If you need a drink, stop by the liquor store by baggage claim. They often have free samples. But something small, tip well, THEN ask about the sample.
