    1 - Gaming
    2 - Entertainment (in the form of people watching and gaming, not shows)
    3 - Dining - use that term loosely. I eat because I have too. Nothing fancy. I might hit Andiamo at the D if I have the comps. other than that it's quick bites or comped bites. my dining 'budget' is about $10 day and that's probably heavy
    4 - Relaxation. I can relax in my sleepy little town :) and it can move up as I age :)

    That being said, I find wandering around Vegas gambling and drinking to be relaxing, so it's a win/win.

    Gaming - I have it in my town, but very, very rarely do it in town. Prefer the place I cut my teeth.
    Dining - Steakhouses and Sushi. Mmmmm!
    Entertainment - Not really shows, but people-watching (whether it be on the street, watching "big money" play)
    Relaxation - Slowly closing in on entertainment, as I get older.

    Our priority order varies with the purpose of our trip. For my birthday trip (starting tomorrow) the anticipated priority is
    1-Entertainment
    2-Gaming
    3-Relaxation
    4-Dining

    But we shall see what actually happens when LV-induced ADHD sets in :goofy: The only firm event is to see Boston and Cheap Trick at The Joint on Saturday evening.

    3. Relaxation (pretty close tie with #2)
    4. Dining

    I'm a great cook and enjoy making creative things at home. When I'm on vacation, I don't want to think about food too much. Although, that said, there are usually a couple of mid priced (for me, that's around $40-50 pp) meals that I look forward to. The rest of the time, I eat whatever is handy when I get hungry.

    Relaxation. Everything else is tied for second. We enjoy fine dining, but have no problem grabbing a pizza or hitting the hotel café. Gaming is entertainment, but we often have trips where we don't gamble much at all, and concentrate on other things.
