    I don't know if this is funny or stupid, but 3 times I have forgotten to pack swimming trunks. Once I was staying at TI and twice at Mirage.

    Each time I walked up to Fashion Show Mall to Macy's to buy new ones and each time I could not find my way out of the mall until I got directions and even then it was hard to find my way out.

    I also have gotten lost multiple times in MGM and Caesars'.

    I normally have an incredible sense of direction.

    I have also gotten lost in the King Of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania.

    I can't go to Caesar's without getting lost. Ask security where the front door is and they just chuckle and point me the right direction. Must happen all the time LOL

    I found Fashion Show Mall to be pretty easy to navigate. However, I agree that MGM and especially Caesars can induce some confusion.

    I've gotten lost in Caesars and MGM also. I even got disorientated in Flamingo and Bellagio. The worst irritating thing about me is when we rent a car and visit a Strip property. When I leave the property and approach the Strip my sense of North and South disappears.

    One time my Bil was driving and I thought we were heading Downtown until I saw the Luxor and MB signs.....

    Normally I'll just find a wall and follow it. Doesn't work at Caesars

    I have gone into the Sands Convention Center after dropping a rental in valet in the Venetian. Twice.

    FSM is no problem if you're familiar with how malls are laid out, which does vary.

    I've never had trouble at Caesars ever, casino or shops, but I did get lost in, of all places, Monte Carlo. Had to ask how to get to the Strip!

    I had a hard time finding the food court at the mall. I haven't lost in Caesars but got lost in MGM Grand, just way too big.

    I haven't gotten lost in FSM but damn sure have in Caesar's! I always feel like a mouse in a maze when I go into that place.

    KOP mall gets me too - especially since I have moved away. When I go home to visit I always go over and end up getting lost.

    SmarterVegas has all most of the floor plan maps on their site. I have the ones I need on my phone, available offline. I find the malls and shopping areas easier to get around than the actual casino floor. You just have to get distracted for a half a minute and you missed a sign and you're wandering around again. Wandering around Macy's last trip cost me $150 in skincare and I somehow got a Macy's card. If only I had swallowed my pride, pulled out my phone and consulted a map.

    Definitely ditto Caesars. And I have needed to use the FSM directory a time or two.

    Caesars used to confuse me as well but I think I have it sussed now, I got lost in Luxor once, I just couldn't find my way back to Excalibar but after a couple of drinks at the bar I found it first time

    Don't get lost in that mall but do have difficulty walking it because the floors are staggered and we tend to miss a floor.

    Personally I think that mall is a great big cluster****. I don't necessarily get lost, but trying to find a particular store is aggravating even if you do check the map. Took me 20 years to figure Caesars out, and I still make wrong turns there from time to time. THAT I can understand given the casino operators don't care if you ever find your way out, but a mall? You'd think they'd make it easy to find what you're looking for.

    I usually go out my way to pay attention to what's where, when I go in the big mega hotels and malls, but sometimes it takes time and repetition to get it all.

    BUT Vegas is the only place in the world for me, that North is South and East is West. I don't know why, maybe because I never cared when I was young and just hit the strip, instead of renting a car and going all over like now.

    I have to consciously flip the directions in my mind, every trip.
