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.
