Las Vegas is world famous for being an adults playground. Often referred to as the city of sin, and other such colorful phrases, that paint a picture of the kind of city it is, and the kind of holiday you can expect. That being said, Las Vegas has moved on a lot since it's origins, and the old days of the Mafia and corruption. These days there is something for the whole family, from the outlet malls, to the shows and the gambling, to the amusement arcades, the fun fairs and theme park rides, the aquariums, circus shows, zoos and pretty much everything you can think of.
Although the Vegas strip is mostly five star, up market hotels, they are subsidised by the casino's that they are apart of, and are very reasonably priced when compared to hotels of similar standards in other parts of the world. There are also other options for accommodation off the strip too.
If you are looking for cheap Vegas vacations, then you can look for a few options. Firstly, you could look for offers at the big hotels on the strip. They will often be running special offers in low season, which is November to March (excluding Christmas and New Year), and in particular mid-week, from Monday to Thursday. The reason they offer special mid-week prices, is because, most people like to travel to Las Vegas over the weekend.
By offering cheap rates for the rooms, they get customers in the casino, the restaurants, and the shops that are all located in the hotel complex. The other options for cheap accommodation are to either stay in a cheap and cheerful hotel or motel off the strip, but still within close distance to the main drag. If you staying for a longer period, you can look at short term apartment rental. Again, these will be off the main strip, but within easy access.
Now you have taken car of your accommodation, you need to think about the cost of the spending money, which is often the vast majority of the vacation budget. Las Vegas can be as expensive or as cheap as you want to make it, in that way Vegas is quite unique. If you want to eat at five star restaurants, party at top night spots, play with large amounts of money at the casino tables, then you can. On the other hand, you can play the one-armed bandits at a leisurely pace and take advantage of the free drinks that are on offer. You can eat at the cheap but still decent buffets and diners that are also on offer all over Las Vegas.

When you play the slot machines you can often collect points, which then can add up to free buffets and other such free goodies. Whatever you do in Vegas, you are assured a good time.
