    Hello everyone, my name's Rashad, I'm 24 and I'm from Atlanta, Georgia. I fell in love with Vegas in June of 2010 on my first trip. I've been back 4 times since then.

    I was in the United States Navy for 4 years and I'm currently a college student studying criminal justice

    I've been to almost every major city in the world and even been to a few places over seas (Europe) yet, Sin City is my all time favorite place to go and "play" ;)

    I hope I find a bunch of friendly, Vegas-loving people on this site

    -Rashad

    Welcome to the board Rashad. Most of us are addicts on here too and love to talk about Mecca when we are not there. :)

    Aww man you're lucky! My gf is from AZ (Yuma, to be exact) and we drove to Vegas from there during Xmas of 2011. Loved the little road trip. I can't do AZ tho. I've been 2 or 3 times and it didn't suit me. I don't know... But you're lucky to have such short/cheap flights to get to heaven. Thanks for the welcome. I'm actually going from February 7-10. I'll be going for the first time by myself but I'm not sure what to do or how I'll feel doing Vegas alone. Any advice? I love clubbing, drinking and gambling of course (blackjack and roulette, sometimes craps) I'll be staying at Excalibur because of its proximity to NYNY. Have you ever done Vegas alone? How'd you make out?

    Welcome Rashad. I'm also in Atlanta. Returned from my last trip Monday night and made my first trip to Vegas from Atlanta in 1985.

    Yes actually my first trip in 2008 was a solo one...it was great because you can do whatever you want whenever you want just because you feel like it no need to coordinate with everyone. I am a poker player mostly so that might have something to do with it since even if I go with my friends I end up splitting up and going to the poker rooms.

    My philosophy is go with friends but if you can't find any to go with dont let that hold you back fr Vegas! It's the only city I'd have just as much fun solo or with friends

    Alright man thanks. I hope I have just as much fun! I'm just going on a whim. Looked up tickets to Vegas leaving in the next 2 weeks and saw that the weekend of the 7-10 wasn't bad so I booked it. I just need to get away from everyone for a minute. No better place than Sin City
