    Two weeks seems like forever,
    Packed
    Groupons
    Monorail
    Taxi
    Money

    What else should I be doing to prepare?

    Why does it seem like the last two weeks take the longest?

    You're packed 2 weeks ahead of time? :confused2:

    I would probably be considering a rough outline of what I would want to do while I was there. You've probably already done that though.

    No rough outline though, I will get on it now.

    Did you build your ipod play list?
    I always delete mine and build a new one each trip.

    Not sure when you last went, but we were there in Feb and since then there have been a number of new places that have opened.
    For our next trip (soon) we are including a list of the new places to check out.
    If you have not already done so, I suggest compiling a list of the new spots to check out.

    Will do, I am probably the one person that has no clue how to build a play list. Maybe I should do that.
    We were there this time last summer.

    I figured out last trip the best way to avoid this feeling is book four days in advance.

    The playlist suggestion above is spot on.

    I make a new playlist for each trip and every time I hear these songs now, it makes me think of those specific trips. It makes for great memories.
