First time going to vegas april 6th, staying at the MGM Grand.
Welcome to the board! I will be arriving in Vegas on April 7th - 12th. MGM Should be an exciting place to stay as the CMA awards are there Sunday night!
You'll love it and be overwhelmed by its size and scale. I could easily go to LV, check into MGM and spend a few days there and never leave. So many great food choices, games to play, shows...it's just a city within walls.
Learn a few key landmarks for navigation when you get there, two are obvious, the hotel reception and the main elevators then the Starbucks and then the round Centrifuge Bar. Once you can get those locations dialed in, navigating MGM is relatively easy.
Welcome to the board! Hope you have a really great trip!!
Welcome to VMB! I'm sure you'll find ways to waste countless hours meandering through trip reports and funny stories!
Have a great time!
Welcome to the board!
Glad you joined us twobroslawn, welcome to the board.
First trip to Vegas is so exciting. Good luck and have a great trip. I wonder how many times you will get lost in MGM.
Thanks everyone, heres how the trip came to be, we were going to go tues-thurs staying at the luxor, then i found out that the amc awards are at the mgm on that sunday. We really wanted to see that as how often do you get to see the red carpet events for a awards show of that size and we both love country music. so i switched the dates and becasue of price we ended up with the hojo on tropicana, after a week of thinking i called southwest and looked into upgrading hotels. she offered the mgm for 136$ and it comes with a $75 food and beverage credit, so i jumped on it. so from milwaukee to vegas direct flight saturday 5pm to tuesday 5pm i paid $900. I didn't want to stay at the mgm because of its size but for that kind of deal i couldnt pass it up. and the next hotel/resort worth staying at was another 100+ more expensive. and the more i spent on the hotel the less i have to spend while were there. i plan on bringing 1200 to spend. with some gambling but as its my first trip i wanna experience what is vegas.
Welcome. I'll be there when you're there!
I've been watching the weather and its suppose to rain Friday and low 70's for the weekend, I hope to hell that changes to the 80's like it has been the last month
