    Hello everyone! I am new to this Forum - hoping to gain lots of knowledge and tips for my first trip to Vegas in late September. It'll be myself and my husband going for 3 nights. We have four children and they'll be staying home :)

    Thanks :) I'm not sure where we're staying yet. My husband wants a spot with a nice pool area...I'm trying to decide between Mandalay Bay and MGM Grand however that could change depending on the advice I get here.

    I'd suggest MGM Grand over Mandalay Bay just because of location. I hear Mandalay is a great hotel and the pool is wonderful but you are at the very end of the strip with nothing beyond it. It isn't very convenient for exploring the rest of the strip. I stayed at MGM grand my first time in Vegas and enjoyed it. Lots of restaurants and the pool area even has a lazy river.

    I recommend Bellagio and the Cypress Pool. We have stayed there a few times.

    Welcome. You'll enjoy the contrast.
    Because Canada..
    is nothing like Vegas.

    Well, I neverd been to Canada..
    but I know Vegas well enough to say that.

    (actually I did drive through downtown Montreal before so
    I used that as a bad sample size for my comparison, fair or not).
