Was going to make a poll of it, but thought it'd be more fun to hear specifics... So what's the first step you make when you arrive at your destination? (Minus leaving the airport, tipping the cabbie, parking in the hotel garage, etc) Usually for us, it's grab our bags out of the trunk (anything with valuables), check in, take our bags to the room, scope out our upgraded suite , fall into place by strolling around close to the hotel, and deciding where and what to eat, have a casual meal, then go back to the car and get our remaining items (cooler, booze, her bag of shoes lol). I'm curious to see both ends of the itinerary. From checking in and crashing in the room to arriving, skipping check in and hitting the strip, clubs, fine dining. Normally we have our routine down, and that's the way we like it... It's our initiation to our getaway. Everything after that is usually on the fly, unless we have made reservations for dinner or a show.
