My wife & I are planning to travel to Vegas on July 25th ( from Ireland). I've listed a suggested itinerary for our 2 week vacation. I've read a lot of threads concerning suggested routes. Just looking for some advice on the below - are we being realistic with our times etc.

We've been advised that LA is not a must to see - is it a mistake to avoid LA. Should we factor in a day for a tour of LA?
Any tips / advice most welcome. Also, suggestions for accommodation along the way.
