    Finally set my dates for vacation trip to LV for 4/14 - 4/19 planning on leaving Sunday early here and flying back home Friday late.....

    Now:
    1)decide airport for best rates (I'm in western virginia)
    2)see if cheaper to book as package (car, hotel, air) or separate?
    3)hardest.....decide where to stay our budget for two of us for hotel/air is about $1,000. Will have extra for food and other expenses.
    4)so...strip? downtown? other?

    I'm probably being a pain with all these questions.... But I know you are the experts!

    Are you gambling?

    It shows you've been to vegas, what do you want to do?

    Do you have to have a car? (Do you have any trouble walking?) prefer not to walk?

    Unless you just have to be on the strip, downtown will be much cheaper. The hotels are less expensive and the food and drink is about half as much if you look around a bit.

    We are going to need car since wife has family want to see also. Plus want to go to Hoover Dam one of days. Other stuff want to see like place from American Restoration and Pawn Stars.

    We enjoy walking too and want to walk the strip. Wife not been there before. I have been as a truck driver but been quite awhile and didn't have lots of time.

    We aren't really gamblers but will play some slots here and there. Want to get the players cards for the freebies they offer. I have lots of them but she doesn't.

    Was thinking the wash/balt airports too and will check richmond too.....
