a pivotal role in selecting appropriate accommodations. Las Vegas hotels are
often designed to service specific vacationing needs. For example, if your goal
is to gamble, you'll want to stay on, or at least close to, the Strip. Many

you can bring your own bed and park it in one of Las Vegas' many campgrounds.
