The resort fee is $13 but it includes Internet in your room and a shuttle to the Strip (Drop off a Linq where the world's tallest ferris wheel is, across the street is Caesar's Palace).
Flights can actually be pretty affordable. If you live by an airport that is serviced by Southwest Airlines, you can get a great price on your flight. The best thing about Southwest Airlines is that you can check in 2 bags, and have 1 carry-on and 1 personal item for no additional charge. If your airport is not serviced by Southwest, I always point to Kayak because it can do a search across all airlines. As you search for flights, changing a day or two or time can make a big difference.

Las Vegas is serviced by many taxis. However, Uber tends to be 1/2 the price and a better experience. You can download the smartphone app and your first ride should be free. For their latest coupon code go here: Uber

Weather is typically 60-70 degrees around this time of year.
