    4th of July in Las Vegas

    I will be spending the 4th in Vegas with the Wife, at the Encore. Our thought is to get as high up in the hotel as possible (hopefully 60th floor+) over-looking the strip in order to view any fireworks going on.
    Does anyone have any experience there on the 4th concerning best place to view fireworks?

    I was there last year and can tell you that it is major crowded everywhere. So much so that walking around is difficult.

    Four year ago, we were there for the 4th of July. It was extremely hot and crowded. We stayed at Paris. The pool was so packed that it was hard to get in. We didn't go on the strip during the day. The lines to the Diamond Lounges were ridiculously long, especially Caesars. But other than that, we had a wonderful time and would do it again.

    Thanks, I figured we were better off staying and enjoying the view without the crowds. Not afraid of the heat, had a couple of 116 degree days a few years back...

    Both Caesars and MGM properties now charges you $10 a person to look out your hotel window to observe the fireworks. You can get this waived if you're Noir/Seven-Star.

    WHAT???? HOW do they do THAT?? Charge you 10 bucks extra per room? What if you are not in your room?? THAT is just insane.

    It was a joke, but the fact that you thought it was feasible enough to consider shows how money hungry these places have become!

    I think your plan to stay put and get up high (not get high) is about the best possible. You can go out on the strip or other casinos about 3-4am with no problem.
    I bet you I can stop gambling!
