    Man, wife and I just can't sleep in while in Vegas... Seems like we always are up around 4-5 (7-8 eastern time) A.M. ish and boy is it hard to find coffee that early in the morning. We stay in the Hilton grand vacations behind Flamingo and the coffee shops aren't open then. At least in the Flamingo (That we have found)....

    Anyone else have these challenges ?

    Yep. I actually met some people out there that just stay on east coast time. going to be at their normal time and dinner etc. Sounded like it worked out for them since its A 24 hour town. Mornings are the worst though!

    I stay on east coast time while in Vegas. It makes coming home easier on us. I don't mind starting my day at 5am as it makes it feel like I'm getting more out of my stay.

    I usually keep east coast hours. I'm up and playing in the casino at 4am and tired by 10pm. Even if I end up staying up until 1 or 2 am, I never sleep past 6am-ish. I can always find a coffee. I can hit Starbucks for a latte or my fav cocktail waitress always knows to bring me a "blackeye" (2 shots of espresso in a coffee).

    I don't sleep well in Vegas either. What I have done on the last few trips and helps is on the first night there I stay up all night and go to bed around 5 or 6 am. Then sleep till noon and I am usually much better for the rest of the week. Then on my last night in town I stay up all night, as my flight home are usually at 7am, and sleep on the plane ride home.

    I hardly ever sleep in Vegas. I'm also the type that doesn't want to miss anything, so I end up trying to do it all.

    If it were a short trip (3 days or less). I'd probably sleep one night only. But I've never been to Vegas for less than 5 days. For longer stays, I think I've figured out the perfect system though and I'm looking forward to testing it next week. I'm going to try and sleep from 3AM to 7AM and then nap from 4PM to 6PM. This gives me 6 hours of sleep per day which should be enough to keep me going, but it also lets me be up bright and early to have breakfast and pool time with the wife in the morning. Obviously I won't sleep the last night of the trip and crash on the plane.

    We are very rarely there just alone, so we have other people to be concerned with... I bring a group of 5 - 7 each year (CES), Wife, Mother (father passed away two years ago and it gives her something to look forward to), Son his girlfriend, daughter and her husband.. The youngster's (21 years and up) have no problem sleeping.. It's us old folks that arise at those unGodly hours.

    As far as coffee, the Flamingo cafe's are closed at that hour, would have to go to the strip somewhere I guess... What would be a suggestions in that location for Coffee? Not a big fan of Starbucks but WILL choke it down if necessary..

    You can sleep when you're dead.
