A recent Internet survey found Las Vegas-bound visitors who booked their trips on Expedia.com spend an average of $1,600 over a three-day vacation.
That’s a lot of dough, considering more than 39 million people visited Southern Nevada last year.
Data came from more than 1,400 travelers who booked their trip on Expedia.com and Hotels.com over a two-week period in September 2012. An email survey asked travelers questions about their Las Vegas trips and spending habits.
Of about $1,663 shelled out over the three days — excluding hotel rooms — spending broke down like this:
The balance went toward golf, spa visits, transportation and sightseeing. Visitors did 42 percent of their spending — $698 — at the hotel where they stayed.
About 80 percent of those surveyed said they were employed full-time and had attended college. More than half were married.
