    Hubby and I are going to LV for the first time in over 10 yrs for our 30 wedding anniversary. Loooonnnngggggg time since last visit due to putting kids thru college and remodeling the home.
    We have booked a 4 night stay at Aria. Deluxe King with View, plus airfare from SF Bay Area for a total of 1100. Have no idea if this is a good deal or not. Have stayed at Venetian quite a few times, (it was my fav). Bally's, Monte Carlo, Mirage... wanted to try one of the "new" resorts.
    I used to know this town like the back of my hand, but no more.
    Any tips? I could sure use them. Have been scanning the boards like crazy to get information. We are going at the end of Sept. Plan on doing the $20 trick to see what we can get. I get to pick a restaurant for dinner, and a show. Any recommendations?
    Let me just say that this board looks pretty informative, and look forward to hearing from all. Glad to be onboard here. Thanks. :wave:

    1. Get some drink coupons.
    2. When booking in the future, I recommend looking at separate deals (room and hotel separate bookings) as a lot of time they are cheaper and you can change them last minute if needed, but the ease of having everything taken care of is nice and a lot of people do it as a package as well.
    3. Keep on the boards and read trip reports.
    4. There are other sites like Yelp and Tripadvisor that give really good suggestions and reviews for places to go for activities and food so keep scanning!

    What are the dates of your trip? What do you like to do? Shows? Helicopter? Clubs?

    Welcome.
    A lot has changed since your last visit.
    Everyone will have suggestions. If you have something specific it may be best to post within the specific section. :beer:

    Hello Everyone

    Thanks for all the kind words! Forgot to mention that our eldest daughter is getting married in Oct....so as much as I would like to study these boards, I have other matters on my mind !
    As far as food...we like pretty much everything. I used to love going to the different Buffet's...Spice Market was good back then, and Paris for breakfast. Are they still good? We are staying at Aria, but reviews for that Buffet just seem so-so. The Cosmo seems to have a good one, and CP is tops now, if you don't mind spending an arm and a leg for dinner. For that cost, I think I would prefer to dine in a restaurant.
    In my older Vegas days, we would rent a car and get around to all the Local's casino's. Considered that, but since the Strip has changed so much, we will probably spend our 4 days just checking out all the changes.
    One thing I would specifically like to know is where are the great deals for Happy Hour? That, and any other suggestions will be most welcome. Thanks everyone!
