    Hi all. I don't think I've introduced myself yet. I am addicted to Vegas (even though I've only ever been once!) I wanted to go ever since I was 18 and always said when I was 21 that I'd go but life got in the way and it took me a further 6 years to book and I ended up going for the first time late last year. I absolutely loved it and have booked to go back in October. I travel with my OH, I'm 28 and he is 31.

    I love Vegas because I love the gambling, the sights, the atmosphere etc. and the thing I hate most in Vegas is kids!

    When I'm not in Vegas I enjoy reading the TRs (and feeling insanely jealous when I do) and I'm a bit obsessed with making lots of Vegas plans and colour coded spreadsheets for the visits - hey, I like to be organised.

    I use MyVegas mainly for Buffet comps and stay a MGM properties and do most gambling there too as I'm an Mlife member.
    Now I'm just counting down til the next trip...

    Welcome. The thing I too hate most in Vegas is kids and you can never have too many spreadsheets. :)

    Welcome! That's how the addiction starts - one trip and you're in.

    We (my wife and I) are equally addicted, we got married in Vegas and have been 9 times in total. Travelling from Scotland is kind of a bummer but its worth it just to get to Vegas, we dont have kids so can share your annoyance at Vegas kids, really no place for children!

    I've actually made the decision not to have kids of my own so that I can go to Vegas every year. I know that sounds mad but I think I'd rather have my freedom and fun!

    Thanks for the welcome everyone.

    I travel from England so I feel your pain celticnoel79 but I think it makes it much more special. If Vegas was just down the road it wouldn't hold the same appeal IMO!

    Welcome. I just joined last night and I am also a Vegas addict. I've had opportunities to go anywhere in the world, but I choose to go to Vegas. I'm sick and I refuse help. LOL

    Welcome to the Fabulous Vegas Message Board!!!

    I'm just about a 1 1/2 hour flight from Vegas and I love that we can manage 4-5 trips a year. It's depressing when we don't have at least one upcoming trip planned.

    Didn't know that we'd turn into such Vegas geeks, but we were hooked after the first trip.
