    I know for many it's eating at a favorite restaurant, hitting up a club/bar, seeing a special show/event, playing in a poker tournament/slot event, or just walking the strip and taking it all in..... and for many, just gambling/eating and drinking....one non-stop event. LOL
    For me, I can't wait to experience Monday Night Football on December 14, at a sports book TBD. My favorite team, the Miami Dolphins, are playing the NY Giants. This time of year we all have hope that the team/game will be meaningful, and it looks like this year it just might be true. :beer:

    That's not one thing.

    Since you cheated I will. I am looking forward to golfing in vegas for the first time, and the continental cup of curling.

    For our trips it's the feeling of being immersed in the Vegas vibe. I've tried to explain this to friends that have never experienced this, but either you get it or you don't. Every trip is something we look forward to from the minute of our last departure...Viva Las Vegas!!!

    I get it, and we love it. We used to live in Orlando, but didn't frequent Disney World that often, and when we did it was to take the kids. Las Vegas is our Disney World...one big adventure.

    For me it is getting super drunk for cheap, and walking around like idiots. It is easier to blend in in that city than in my hometown lol. the gambling is overrated. Way better odds in my hometown Indian casino. But having ANYTHING you want within walking distance is awesome.

    Have seen a lot of UFC on PPV but have never been to a LIVE event. The goal for next trip is to attend UFC 200 and the fan expo, I've never been to either.

    We did the The Chief (Caboose) so that was really nice and semi private with the outdoors platform.
    It's a long day "Riding the Rail" but it's fun! Take plenty of pictures. Hope you have a nice time.

    PS: Looking forward to getting back to Vegas in Nov. Haven't been since Feb of this year. Far too long haha!

    I totally get it! My husband was actually asking me the other day what I'm looking forward to the most about our big Vegas trip in December. The only response I could think of on the fly was...BEING THERE!

    He was like, yeah, but what about it? I was like...omg...I don't know...the lights...the sights...ahhh...just being there!

    We love to do the same thing. Sit back with an adult beverage, and watch a cast of characters put on a show that will put anything on TV to shame....best channel is downtown. LOL

    The Aria experience in winter. I am going to try and spend 90% of my time in CityCenter only, had it with running around on the last trip. Food and beverage credit and freeplay will help me in this mission. Will report back, have to actually book it first!
