    I believe if you park at LINQ or Flamingo I don't think you pay for parking. Check with both Resorts - not all Caesars resorts charge. Be ready there are a tremendous about of changes I go 3-4 times a year and still can't get over all the changes - have fun!! If you are a Caesars player check on the free tickets you get at any Total Rewards counter. Look forward to your trip report when you return. I'll be there Sept 20-22 part of my Birthday Celebration month. Have fun!!!

      Car was ok, except the Oil light came on the 1st day so I took it back and got a 2nd car.




      Sat - great place - not far from DelTaco and In/Out Buger
      GOOD Spent around $15 had tons of fun

      Britney Spears - Piece of Me -
      Great show worth the money
      Good Free parking
