    I'm wanting to get out to Vegas more. I'm on the Vegas high from this past weekend but still seems like a doable trip. Just wanting to see how much everyone else travels to Vegas.

    I would like to make it a once a year trip. That seems like a lot to me but many on here seem to go about once a month!

    I go once a year but this year I am going twice. Hopefully I can make it twice a year from here on out.:beer:

    Twice a year is about my average.

    Once a month for sure and sometimes twice, but I cheat... I have business to tend to in town and that's what brings me in. That doesn't mean that I don't carve out time each and every visit for fun! I'm also just as excited to hit town now as I was 20 years ago...

    I usually go twice a year but looks like will only make it once this year. I live in upstate NY so it's a long 5.5 hour flight going out. If I lived in California, I would definitely go more often.

    was going almost monthly in 2008, 2009, 2010 but cut back to about twice a year now.

    A quarterly trip would be ideal for me, but the comps, odds, flights, and other commitments have conspired against me.

    Each March I make a trip out for the weekend of the major conf tourneys. I hit town on Wednesday afternoon and stay through Monday. 6 days.

    Every May I make a solo trip to celebrate the end of school. This trip is between 8 and 14 days in length.

    In November, we do a couples trip for football. Hit town on Friday night and stay through Monday. 4 days. Lucky for me, I am usually the 9th wheel on this trip and have nobody to answer to ;)

    I also try to go one in July, but this doesn't always happen. This trip is usually 5 days in length.

    Guess it looks like I spend a minimum of 18 days a year in Vegas. And sometimes up to 29. Lol. Not a bad way to live ;))))

    I went 6 times last year. I usually averaged 4-6 trips a year, now that I've relocated to the UK, hopefully we'll make one trip a year now. Unfortunately there will be no trips to Vegas for us in 2013. :cry:

    Once or twice a year since 2005.

    One trip in the fall is automatic; the boy's weekend where we hit various poker tournaments.

    When the US Bowling Congress has their National tournament in Nevada (usually in Reno, like this and next year) I make sure we get to Vegas for a few days, too.

    About 5-6 years ago we started going to Vegas twice a year then it crept up to 4 times, last few years were 6 and 8 trips :beer: This year is looking like I will only get 3-4 trips though, as I have other commitments.

    I go to Vegas everyday.....in my mind.

    In reality I've been going once a year and lately twice a year. I'm planning to visit quarterly when I retire.

    I went 3 times in the past year. A little to much for me I think, probably scale it back to 1 or 2 times a year.
