    Hello everyone.
    California native, I will be heading out to Vegas in a few weeks. Pretty excited. Solo trip (a friend had to drop out :( )
    I had gone on a solo trip while back (5 years ago?) had tons of fun met a load of people, did some shopping, and just had a blast. Wynn. They offered me three whole nights free! (kinda contributed to me having a blast lol, but definitely I had a good time meeting others and just enjoying myself !!

    I work in a tech company as an analyst but my passion is classical music. Cant wait for the trip! Nice meeting you all.

    I'll be in Vegas, El Cortez July 3rd check-in through July 5th check-out (possibly 6th). I'll be driving my car around. I can meet up anyone anywhere anytime!!!

    Welcome. Whereabouts in Cali are you located? Monterey area here.
    We usually stay at the El Cortez for part of our annual trip, we love the big tower rooms and the old school Vegas feel.

    Hi I'm from Orange County. :)

    **

    Now that I waited too long the rooms have gotten more expensive. So it is sort of a wash; I was thinking LINQ as it is only $90 per night but I'm not sure if I'm actually going anymore.

    Found out my friend is coming sooner to Cali to meet me than I thought (instead of what I orginally thought which was she couldn't come at all so thus my solo trip plans) so I'll most likely be postponing my trip a couple of months.

    I'm still itching to go though !! Not sure if I can wait another 60 days !!

    Thanks!

    I decided to go. I booked two nites at LINQ 4th-6th , excitedly thinking the LINQ was one of the upscale hotels like the Cosmo, Aria, or Venetian... it is the old Imperial Palace!!! lol
    No wonder the rooms were so cheap. OK. No worries. I'll still have fun.
