    Welcome to the board, Quicky !!!
    Many, many years ago, my wife and I, and our little daughter camped at the "Red Coconut" on the Ft. Myers beach. Not sure if it's still there, but we had a great time, and all got sun-burned.

    You're more likely to find us with the owls and the rest of the relics. Never been to Nemo's. Is that one of the places that wanted patrons to be allowed to take their drinks out onto the beach?

    Hi from Bonita Springs

    Another "hello" from Bonita Springs. I didn't realize there were so many Las Vegas lovers nearby.

    Southwest recently had a sale which we took advantage of -- flights beginning August 28 and ending December 18th. Flying from Ft. Myers on AirTrain (part of Southwest), connecting to Southwest in Atlanta to Vegas. We're going with friends in early December for a week.

    Do any of you locals go on OJ's trips to the Beau Rivage?

    We stayed at Beau Rivage July 1st thru the 4th and really liked it. Didn't hit all the casinos so we have to go back. We found air fare for 260 on Delta. Ft. Myers, Houston on to Las Vegas. Were happy with a 10:30 AM arrival. If you don't mind what did Southwest cost?

    Beau Rivage from Ft. Myers info

    OJ owns a travel company called "Games & Travel", located in Ft. Myers, FL., which organizes 3-night charter trips to the Beau Rivage about every 6 - 7 weeks. The direct flights from Ft. Myers to and from Gulfport, MS are on Vision Air, and from there guests are transported to the Beau Rivage via buses or limos. If you have a MLife Players card, the total cost of the trip, including airfare and rooms, is usually comped. To find out more, or to be put on the Games & Travel mailing list, call 239-768-3431.
