In the pages that follow, you’ll find everything you need to know to handle the practical details of planning your trip in advance: airlines and area airports, a calendar of events, a list of major conventions you may want to avoid, resources for those of you with special needs, and much more. We also suggest that you check out chapter 8, “Las Vegas After Dark,” before you leave home; if you want to see the most popular shows, it’s a good idea to call ahead and order tickets well in advance to avoid disappointment. (Ditto if you want to dine in one of the city’s top restaurants; head to chapter 4, “Where to Dine,” for full reviews and contact information.) For advance information, call or write the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, 3150 Paradise Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89109 (& 877/VISIT-LV or 702/892-7575; www.vegasfreedom.com). They can send you a comprehensive packet containing brochures, a map, a show guide, an events calendar, and an attractions list; help you find a hotel that meets your specifications (and even make reservations); and tell you if a major convention is scheduled during the time you would like to visit Las Vegas. Or stop by when you’re in town. They’re open daily from 8am to 5pm. Another excellent information source is the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce, 3720 Howard Hughes Pkwy., #100, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (&702/735-1616; www.lvchamber.com). Ask them to send you their Visitor’s Guide, which contains extensive information about accommodations, attractions, excursions, children’s activities, and more. They can answer all your Las Vegas questions, including those about weddings and divorces. They’re open Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm.
