    I am new here but have been a member of Trip Advisor for years. We were going to Vegas yearly for 10 years, but haven't been now for 4 years due to other trips, including an Alaskan cruise. Anxious to get back in June when we will be taking our 21 yr.old granddaughter and her byfrnd to celebrate her turning 21 (actually b-day is in March but she is studying abroad until mid May), my 2 daughters (one just turned 40 and one will be turning 40 at end of year) and their spouses (one daughter and spouse have never been there either). We have been telling granddaughter since she was 6 we'd take her for 21st b'day,so should be fun. As of now I have 2 rooms booked for the first 2 nts. at NYNY, last night at 4 Queens Downtown-may rethink that but she also wanted to get downtown experience and husband and always split our stay between strip and DT. Have many sightseeing things planned and Hoover Dam Tour, so have purchased 4 Power Passes (thru Costco whuch was cheaper) to try to save some money. So hopefully all goes well and it will be a fun trip!! :beer:

    Welcome fellow Minnesotan, and fellow TA member. It sounds like you've got a great trip planned. I'm back in Vegas in June myself, and after the winter we've had, I think we deserve it!

    Welcome! I am in Lakeville too! :)

    Have a great trip!

    We enjoy Four Queens the most of any downtown property. Perfect location, great employees, and the rooms are always clean.

    We may live in God's country, but nothing wrong with a vacation in Sin City!

    As for MSP --> LAS junkets, my first trip to Vegas in '97 was a Funjet vacation, I think. Whatever happened to those?

    I know the website still exists, but I never hear about them any more. Maybe there's more of them happening than I think, but it seems to me like that, much like the travel agent, the travel agency junkets to Vegas have largely gone by the wayside.

    Anyway, welcome, once again, gramsclp.
