We were in Vegas in Sept last year, like the other said you'll need to look at accommodation closer to the time. It was towards the end of Sept and it was still in the mid to high 30's while we were there, I would not go in summer!also check out when the huge conventions are in town, they always have them but there are some that bring in 1000's of people. Again something to look for closer to the time.
The strip is Looong! We drove and although the strip is quite busy with traffic it's pretty easy to get around and as for parking we just rocked up to a hotel and Valet parked! Cost us $2-3 in tip that's it! No one questioned us at all.
Shopping is great, The North outlets are very good, but driving distance away. There is a big mall there too right on the strip, up one end which has a lot of great stores.
We had kids so didn't do the night life, we went to the Grand Canyon after Vegas and if you can make it out there you will not be disappointed.
