    The 1st Vegas trip is the most exciting(for me) thing there ever is! My first trip was last May, and am now going again in February. Do you know where you are staying yet?

    My first trip I stayed a week, I was so glad I did. There is so much to see and do. I am going on my fourth trip now and I still haven't seen it all.

    So the best advice I could give you is don't over plan and to just go with the flow when you get there especially being your first time.

    Welcome to the board you will find that it is a great site, lots of information and with many great people!! :peace:

    Welcome home. Like another poster said, don't overplan. Research some things you you like to see and do, then see what happens.

    Welcome RickRock, it should be a trip to remember no matter where and what you end up doing.
    What is your timing?

    Late January usually brings some of the best rates. You might want to look at the Flamingo, Paris or Bally's (at least you would be across the street from the Bellagio)!
