All the time, especially now that it's football season. I love football Sunday in Vegas!!! I just got an email with flights for $180.00 RT, but it has to be during the week. Weekends are $280.

Yes, and it was much easier to actually act upon it when I lived in Arizona.

I've never been there but I'd love to shoot out for a few days to see what all the fuss is about.

On the same topic my fiance is flying to Vegas tomorrow morning for a week-long trade show. I hope she has a good time... and what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

Was in Vegas once. It was ok fun, but I'm not really a gambler. I'd probablly pick another spot to spend a weekend.

New Orleans is a different story. I'd go back there in a heartbeat

Truer words have never been spoken. 2-3 days is enough for me. 4 at the most. If you don't like to gamble, then Vegas is not a fun place.

Every damn day.......

I do an annual Vegas trip, usually in Sept. We started at 4 days, then switched to 3 days after two years, then switched back to 4 days thinking we would use the fourth day to rest. Now we are back at 3 days after using the 4th day to party more.....

I think the only reason I'd got to Vegas is for the Freddy Spencer school. I suck at gambling, and hot female ass is cheaper and more plentiful here. That's what I love about these freshman college girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

hell yes! My gf and i went a few years ago, actually a long time ago, i was 18 at the time.(25 now) Although i couldn't gamble or drink it was still fun just walking up and down the strip, plus it wasn't all that bad since brought a sack with me from LA. I'd love to go again, although i'm not much of a gambler, still fun just to be out of Chicago.

get the itch?? yeah, i love going out there for the weekend. So much I bought a 3 bedroom condo 4 years ago. Best investment ever I try and go about 6-8 times a year. There is sooo much to do. Anna(vivid) and 2 of my friends were there for new years. great time, and we spent one whole day out in Utah driving thru national parks. That's what I love about it out there.. you have all this beautifull nature not far away, you have a great night seen, great restaurnts, great shopping, great shows, great people watching and oh yeah, if you have time.. do some gambling. Also, out of all the times I went there(many, lost count many years ago) Only once or twice did i have bad weather. Usually for a day. Unlike when I go to florida, which i also do often, it's a gamble with the weather??

Have fun
