My wife and I always say "man, we really need to stop going to Vegas so much so we can go other places," and we inevitably end up booking another Vegas trip shortly thereafter. Here are the reasons that we keep going back. 1. I'm a degenerate gambler. I love the action of gambling -- watching the unbelievable streaks of cards come out in BJ or the dice rolls in craps. Chasing those royal flushes on VP. Even playing some of those silly Konami slots with the wife. It all gets my dopamine going. Hell, the trip itself is a gamble. It could end up being "free" or we could even come out to the positive if we run well...or, you know, it could be way more expensive than a normal vacation if we run poorly or we (ahem, I) go on tilt. 2. It's a short, direct flight for us. 3 hours from DFW, with no stops. Plus, it's usually $250-350 round trip. Nice! 3. It's comfortable. There's comfort in simply knowing where things are and not having to deal with new public transportation or finding your way. 4. Even if we stayed in the exact same hotel every time, no trip ever remotely resembles another. 5. There's always something going on, so if we want to stay up til 6am to drink and gamble, we can. Or if we want to wake up at 6am to drink and gamble, we can do that, too. That pretty much sums it up. Obviously, a rotating list of new shows and restaurants doesn't hurt, either. So, why do you keep going back?
