    One of my favorite las vegas quotes of all time is by Dick Odessky. "Las Vegas is not a place....Las Vegas is a state of mind"

    Would you agree or disagree with this statement?

    In the middle, I would not (and do not) have that state of mind in any other place. I like the quote though!

    I kinda get in that state of mind in the final days leading up to a trip. Especially when on the plane ride over lol

    Since I have friends who live in the area, I would have to say it is more a state of mind than it is a place. My friends don't have the Vegas mindset at all. They never visit the Strip, and go gambling about like other people go out to dinner or to the movies. It's just something to do on slow nights.

    A couple weeks ago, another friend retired. He plans to spend winters in Las Vegas in a house he bought super cheap in 2011. His daughter and grandchild live in Vegas. I'll give him a while and see how he feels.

    Just like my old high school buddy and his wife that's lived out there 13 years now. They would rather go hiking or he rides his bike daily (he's retired) than even think of going to a casino. Only time that's done is usually to celebrate a birthday or anniversary and then it's a show or dinner or both. They seldom gamble.

    I had friends one of which lived in Malibu and the other in Jacksonville who never went to the beach, hated it in fact.

    I guess it's the same principal when one lives in Las Vegas.

    I live at the shore

    The only beaches I go to are sand traps. I agree that different areas become a state of mind with a lot of people . Look at peoples driving habits in different areas as an example.

    Vegas is one of those places that is great to visit, but mostly for the hype of gambling and nightclubs.Locals go to bars near their homes and maybe gamble at the neighborhood casino. i go to the strip for work or if playing tour guide for friends and family. Vegas is really just like any other city, its what people make of it.

    I agree 100%. I have a friend that lives in vegas and he doesn't really do anything there unless I'm in town. Then I have a friend who used to live there and he loves to take trips there. Vegas is definitely more of a state of mind imo.
