We go to Vegas twice a year. The best months are September and May for Vegas. This will be the first time that we will be going to Vegas in November. Then I will have been to Vegas every single month of the year. One year we went five times.

I like the idea of counting work days. It makes Vegas vacation seem so much closer!

We've been going to Vegas once a year for the past few years. Oh, except for last year I went twice. We'd like to start going in May or early June to watch some of the World Series but September seems to work really well for us and our friends that we go with.

My significant other counts Vegas days like that. He only counts the weekdays. I agree with you I canít wait to have some fun.

I had braces at 42 and had them on for about three years. After every meal I would go clean my teeth. My significant other would say do you know how much money I spent while you were in the bathroom?

How often do you go to Vegas?

BCGIRL74...I'm not too sure on my braces...Was hoping not more than two years but who knows because they did have to do some extractions. As of today (Aug. 12) I have 46 working days and 72 days total til' Vegas! I cannot wait. The spa, the shows, the restaurants, the poker, the craps, the people watching, the lights, the room, the little woman, the little woman and the room, (lol). Viva Las Vegas!

Bellagio is my favorite place to stay. I only have stay there twice. I've seen Mystere and O. I liked Mystere over O.

What we did for Harrahís is my significant other signs up for a playerís club card and he will get two cards. I play with his card to get points. Then we started to get offers from them. We are not big gamblers. We only have their gold card.

Wow! How did you get the three nights commped? I heard of people getting rooms when they sign up and use the player's cards. I'll have to sign up for those this trip. We signed up for one our first trip to Vegas but we had all lost them by our second day. I think I went to Guest Services and got a replacement and lost that one within a day too. Lol.
Thanks for the website. I'll keep checking it to see what is available for our trip. We're staying at the Bellagio and that is where O is playing so we're thinking they might have deals for guests. We stayed at T1 last year and they had deals for Mystere for their guests. We're going to go to the cheap tixs place on the Strip to see if they have anything for Phantom.
We saw Jubilee last year and just thought it was okay. I haven't seen Penn and Teller either. So much to do, so little time!!

43 more sleeps is not long at all.

Right now we plan on staying at one of Harrahís properties. They are giving us comp room for three nights. We would have to pay for one night. The cost of shows can be high. Iíve seen Phantom and I purchase tickets thru www.goldstar.com Iíve just check and they donít list Phantom this time.

We were thinking of seeing Penn & Teller and Jubilee we have 2 for 1 for both shows. We have never seen Penn & Teller. We have seen Jubilee a long time ago.

Where are you staying?

emoticon That isn't that far away! November will be here in no time! Do you know where you're staying yet? Do you plan on catching any shows while you're there?
My trip is in 43 more sleeps. I can hardly wait! We're planning on seeing Cirque de Soleil's O, which the hubby and I have seen before but the friends we're going with haven't. I also really want to see Phantom. We're going to see if we can get cheap tickets once we're there.
Welcome to the team!

What a great description of a Vegas vacation. I love Vegas too!! I'm going to make time to play some poker when I'm there in Sept. I didn't play any last time and regretted it.
How long do you have to have the braces on for? I had them for two years as an adult and I pretty much hated every minute of it. They were worth the results though.

Just under 3 months now (October 24), I already have a lot of my "spending" money and will start my official Vegas training on September 1st. For now I'm maintaining my weight and working overtime and just being a spectacular human being! lol Got braces and having teeth extracted in a few hours. Improving ones life is a lot of hard work but SO fun! That feeling of touching down at McCarrons Int'l airport and sitting on that bus taking you to the car rentals. Checking in and opening the door to your room. Freshening up and grabbing a bottle of water to go. Holding hands on the way to the elevator. Giving the security camera something to watch on the elevator! Walking up to a craps table and throwing some Ben Franklin's and my Grazie card down and saying "change only." Watching the lady in the cage count out my chips and money and saying "all large please." Chilling by the pool and knowing my lady is okay with me "admiring" other ladies only because it's Vegas and she's very secure in herself. The massage therapists saying "Mr. and Mrs. _____ right this way," knowing we're not married. Finding our seats at the show and walking down all those stairs because we're so close to the stage. Writing in a 20% tip and charging it to our room knowing the numbers don't mean anything! Counting our money back at the airport and saying "okay this is enough for our next trips air and hotel and a couple days' spending money, what should we do with the rest?" I LOVE Las Vegas!

Oh yes, free is so so nice!!
Though in Vegas sometimes the prices are so low they are practically free! How do you get free rooms??
We are actually going to New Orleans in the fall, and Disneyworld, so we have sadly taken a Vegas break! No plans to go until Viva next year in April...:'(

Let the countdown to October 24, 2010 begin! Just got back from my greatest Vegas trip of all time! The Venetian is absolutely fabulous! Beautiful room..was spotless and smelled good and the service was the best I've had. Winning at poker and craps was a blast! Canyon Ranch Spa was spectacular, I had NO idea what to expect. Laying there getting a facial and they put your hands and feet in that warm mud or whatever it is, then warm mittens and booties is a TRIP! The warm humidifier thingy next to your face! The pools, a $240 dinner for two at Delmonicos, Peepshow with Holly Madison and having FRONT/CENTER tickets! No kidding! I'm just a regular working man with a wonderful lady. I don't golf or fish or hunt so I choose to spend my money living like a KING for 12 nights a year in Las Vegas and I have no regrets! VIVA Las Vegas!

Lol...it kind of changed my opinion of her a little bit. I'm glad you had a good trip! There will definitely be some pool time when I go in September. We want to rent a cabanna for an afternoon. I've never done that before and think it will be fun.

Post VLV, we stayed at Paris for a few days. So nice to be an elevator ride away from Mon Ami Gabi...:) I've never stayed at Bellagio, though I'd like to someday!

LUMP: Have a great trip!! The anticipation must be killing ya! ;) The Venetian is lovely! Have you stayed there before? It's definitely one of my favorite rooms in vegas!

Sorry Rustee, I don't know of any hiking places. I wonder if your hotel could point you in the right direction? My husband and I Geocache, and we've noticed that there are a few in the casinos for us to find the next time we go. That's a little different than the Geocaching we do around here, but it will still be fun! We actually go on day hikes for the ones around our place.

Have fun on your trip! April 20th is just around the corner.

I would certainly go for a weekend jaunt during the winter. It will certainly be nicer (read: no snow) than in Winnipeg! BUT if I have time to sit by the pool (5 days or more) I'd rather go April - September. we got married last year in March, in Vegas. Some days were great, but we had some cold rainy days too!

I'm hoping to go back in October for my 40th birthday!!

So nice that you were able to snag some nice weather in January, what a treat!
We were there last year April 7th-15th and when we arrived it was almost 95 degrees, and when we left it was in the 40's!! Thankfully it only slowly got cooler each day so most of the trip was fun in the sun! :)

Mid to end of March it should hit the 80's (usually) .... when were there (Jan 6-10), it hit 60 every day (not usual) I got to wear sandals... felt REAL warm compared to home... the day we flew out it was 7 degrees at home. I'll take Vegas any day!

I'm with you on the traveling somewhere warm if you're going to travel in the winter! :) I have never been to Mexico, so that is on my list of cold weather vacations :)

We will be going the end of March/beginning of April, so hopefully it will be warm enough to get some pool time in!! I can't wait!

Hi Andilu

You're right, it is cold there right now. I went this time last year and almost froze!! I did not bring enough warm clothes with me. The next time I go somewhere in Jan, or Feb it will be somewhere warm.

I agree with you about just going all out in March when you go instead of going now too. March is just around the corner too!! September, however, seems so far away!!

We're not going over to watch any of the games. I am in a draw for gold medal hockey tickets though, so you never know! Do you have tickets for anything?

A friend of mine is heading to Vegas in 2 weeks. She's staying at T1 for about $375 as well. I'm so jealous!!

Hi Hockey

I'm doing okay, how have you been? I was crushed when our Juniors didn't win gold!

I couldn't afford a trip right now either, even with free hotel. It's the spending money that kills me! I have until Sept. to save. My MIL usually gives us either American money for our birthdays or show tickets, which is a HUGE help!
