    My Trip Report

    Well, we're now in single digits on our countdown clock [​IMG] , so I've decided to put together a few pieces of info as to our plans.

    This trip was brought about for multiple reasons. I'm the Vegas junkie of the house, and I jumped at the chance to go out for her cousin's (whom I've met once for about 20 seconds) wedding. The wife doesn't gamble much, or drink hardly ever, so i figured this would be an interesting trip to say the least. We went for economy, since we'll be there for 4 nights and almost 5 full days. Round trip airfare and hotel rooms at the Plaza were purchased for just under $600 for both of us. Being the first trip for the wife, I'd have liked to do something nicer, but we won't spend much time in the room anyway. My in-laws will also be in town for the wedding and also a convention for my father in law, so during the days, I will probably end up being the tour guide since I've logged the most Vegas time. :rolleyes:

    On the agenda for this trip include:

    *A walking tour of all the hotel/casinos on the Strip and Downtown. This is something I haven't yet done, and my wife actually wants to do this really badly. I guess I won't complain. [​IMG]

    *Red Rock Canyon

    *A trip to the local outlet malls for the wife and M-in-Law, so they can have their shopping fix at a cheaper place than the Forum Shops or Desert Passage.

    *Rides on top of the Stratosphere , simple because the wife insists that "oh, that Big Shot thing wouldn't be that scary."

    *Ethel M's

    *One of the roller coasters for my mother in law. (ANY SUGGESTIONS ON WHICH ONE IS THE BEST VALUE?)

    *Shark Reef

    *Poker tourneys at the Plaza, Luxor, and any others I can find for a lower buy in amount.


    I'm sure more will be added to the list, but this is just a start. As you can see, this will be a more "touristy" trip to Unincorporated Clark County. I would imagine most of the gambling will take place late in the evening or early in the AM while the wife is getting ready.

    If anyone has any suggestions on what else I can do to occupy the time of two non-gambling women, I'm all ears! :confused:
