    Rush Tower. So far we've only stayed on the Strip, so looking forward to the change.
    Does anyone know if they have a gym? I like to get in a quick run in the a.m. to pre-burn the Vegas calories, if I can.

    The Fitness Center at the Golden Nugget charges 20 dollars a day. There are discounts for multiple day passes. Unless you are staying in a Gold Club room in the Gold Tower you will have to pay to use the fitness center.

    A lot of people cannot understand working out while on vacation, but it's a must for me. Nothing major, a short burst followed by a nice shower and I'll feel 100% for the day. Just makes the whole day better (minus the intense workout time lol). That said, that fitness center is a ripoff for $20 based on what I see.

    What my wife and I do is just walk everywhere. It may be a crack pot theory on my part, but it seems to keep the extra Vegas pounds off lol.

    Thanks for the info! $20 for the day seems a bit steep for this convenience. We'll see.

    Try using the $20 dollar trick and ask for a complimentary upgrade to the gold tower? never hurts.

    I don't think it's a crack pot theory. The Vegas trips where I get to work a lot, the temperature is not 95' plus, I manage to not put on weight. And I have no problem eating and drinking in Vegas, lol.
