    One of my friends did two months in LV while doing some work for MGM, he almost became a local!! We now have so many contacts we have taken our LV trips to a whole new level.

    Enjoy!!

    Where are you traveling from?

    After one week, I am kind of ready to go home. Then again, maybe I am just telling myself that so I don't become bummed.

    What is the hotel itinerary?

    I think for two months a hotel would not work. Thinking at minimum a condo for like $1500-2000/mo. Want something close to the [STRIKE]hookers[/STRIKE] action.

    wow 2 months !

    dont know if i could do it

    longest i stayed was 8 days and by day 6 i was ready to leave. maybe it was because on the 6th day we added the other 2 .

    if your looking for budget maybe multiple hotels is your better bet.

    It would be interesting to work out what is cheaper - jumping from hotel to hotel grabbing the best deal (particularly downtown) for a week at a time or one of those long stay apartment arrangements - for the two months. I never noticed if there were any decent backpacker accomodation in Vegas either, as I figured with such cheap hotels it would be pointless.

    I have been considering sitting the bar exam in Vegas for a few years now which would involve probably a three month commitment, so the logistics are of interest to me.

    Las Vegas and the bar exam don't sound like they belong in the same sentence. I would have a hell of a hard time studying for anything school/job-related if I had all of Vegas at my disposal.

    I wonder how a degree from the William Boyd School of Law stacks up to other schools?

    It is not a pure 2 months of vacation - I wish - oh I wish. There is work involved and a fair amount of it. But I know that little whore will be a 10-15 minute drive away anytime I want for 2 months :thumbsup:

    Yuk....I can't fathom why that would be a good thing. Availability of a whore being one of the primo aspects of two months in LV>:vomit:

    I did 2 months in 2008 and wanted to kill myself by the end :vomit:

    Best of luck, I'd never even entertain doing 1/2 that again and 2 months I'd need paying a lot of money to do!!

    Too long for myself.
    A week in LV is good enough be it business or pleasure.
    If I had to be there for that long I would be minimizing casino visits.
    I'd be spending too much time @ Red Rooster.:wink2:

    I do want to live there someday, but not in LV- Pahrump or Henderson. The city of LV has way too many tourists and convention goers for my taste to put up with on a daily basis. During my Navy days I was stationed on Guam, Guam is full of Japanese tourists, but I was on a ship, so we would spend a month or two in the homeport, then we would be off to Japan or South Korea or Australia or somewhere else, and back then I was a single 20 year old that didn't have a wife waving goodbye to me on the pier as we shoved off so I loved it. Putting up with tourists got on my nerves after awhile, but like I said, we weren't there that long. We are doing a 7 night stay in february for the wedding and that will be my longest time there, but I think 7 is very doable.

    We did two trips of two months last year. My SO still didnt want to go home, but I was about ready to leave after six weeks. Both times we looked into a rental property, but opted for hotel hopping instead.

    This year both our trips will be six weeks. The second one isn't far away.
     
    First trip of 2017.

    Did very similar last year too - spent Jan to march and then May to July, before a Xmas to New Year. Both trips were holiday hopping and had a great time on both trips - could spend an eternity out there - only 2 weeks until the next trip, cant wait.:beer:
