    For pure hedonistic consumer heaven, it's hard to beat the shops along the strip.

    I've been to Vegas. Many times. Mainly for CES. Also went there for New Years once. Haven't been there recently.

    Vegas is kinda boring if you don't like gambling or clubbing. But it's pretty cool for sight seeing and outdoor activities though.

    We have been to Las Vegas and had a good time. We went for the shows and the attractions, but we really didn't gamble.

    I've been three times for short visits including a conference. It's an experience! I put a little money down on some blackjack tables, no big wins and no big losses, it was pure entertainment. No plans to go back anytime soon, if at all.

    No. I'm just not into gambling... I can play the games, but I don't get a real rush out of them. I can't see any other reason to go.

    No, I have never been to vegas.
    It is not really high on my list of places to visit. Plus if you want to gamble with nobility it is better to go to Monte Carlo Casino in Monaco.

    You may be right.....however, since I am just a laid-back country boy...I have never cared to visit outside the states.....unless of course someone gives me a reason icon_wink.gif

    I just got back from Vegas.....honestly I hope it is the LAST time I go there. After 2 days I could not wait to get home.( I went for a wedding) I don't gamble or drink so I was definitely in the wrong place. What I hated the most about it was how expensive everything was. $5 for half a grape fruit, $15 for an omelet, my friend ordered a $23 cosmo that had hardly any liqueur in it. She stayed at Harrahs but got deathly ill because of the mold growing in her closet. They finally changed her room after much complaining to a room where the HVAC did not work. What was once "Sin city" is now "Chump city" Good ridence to bad rubbish!

    Have been multiple times, usually for work related activities. I go to the Consumer Electronics Show every year, and my company hosts a charity golf outing there every spring. Have actually been 3 times this year alone.

    LOVE IT for 2-3 days. Longer than that, it begins to stink like yesterday's underwear. A little Vegas goes a LONG way.

    I like to play a little blackjack, and hang by the pool if time and weather permit. The food there is phenomenal also. I can't say I've ever had a bad meal there. Have never hit a show though. Looking forward to getting back in January!

    Yeah, those are definitely 'tourist' prices. If you decide to ever return...give me a yell and I'll give you the scoop on where to go for a decent amount...for everything. icon_wink.gif

    Wow. $5 for half a grapefruit? Vegas can be cheap if you drive around. I generally don't like buffet food, but Vegas hotel buffets are very tolerable and affordable. And there are a lot of good restaurants outside the hotels.

    I'd go there if I was rich and wanted to train MMA and go to UFC shows.

    I imagine seeing everything lit up at night would be pretty awesome, too.

    Was there once, went on a tour out west (this was the start of my traveling days), didn't think much of it, one way or the other.

    I went for the first time with a friend during September.
    It was a nice time. Stopped at Hover dam on the way to Vegas and ate way too much food. LOL.

    I wanted to see the Cirque du Soleil show "O", but was forced to attend a Cher concert which I actually enjoyed. icon_lol.gif
