With so many things to do and see, it can be challenging to figure out how much money to bring with you. In this article, I’ll help you decide just how much spending money you need to bring on your Las Vegas adventure.

Determining Your Initial Las Vegas Budget

According to Statista in 2016, Las Vegas saw a record-breaking number of tourists at 42.9 million visitors. On average, each one of these tourists spent $827. This is just the amount of money they spent during their stay in Vegas, not including travel costs.

With the average time spent in Las Vegas being a 3-night 4-day stay, there are so many things to see and do in Vegas it is unfeasible that you will be able to get to it all.

So, having a plan of what you intend to do will allow you to appropriately budget, but there are a few things to consider before starting your daily budget plan.
