    Way to rub it in! ;) You know what happened to me today? I got my first mailer from AARP!!! Oh the humanity!! :cry::cry::cry:

    I swear that I'm still 27. I'm still irresponsible, broke, lack inspiration and direction in my life, no kids, prefer fun to any kind of grindstone and that old man who claims to be my husband gets annoyed when I play my playlist in the car. :headbang:

    I think it is telling there are more (like 2:1)(as of now) over 62 than under 35. Come on you young lawn trespassers---stuff that ballot box !!!!!
     
    Hopefully, finally !!!

    You're not old, you're just seasoned enough to know how to have fun, and how important it is to appreciate those times, versus playing the "rat in the maze" game.

    Personally, I think a big chunk of people are more interesting, and more fun when they've got a few miles....as they tend to embrace who they are and refine it, versus just chasing who they think people want them to be. Just my two cents.

    Except VMBers of course....we are fun and interesting at ANY age!:woohoo:

    I'd love to hear the younger people's opinion too!

    I'm of the older generation too but have kid's in their 20's.

    Create a facebook post to link people to your site.

    I'm not suggesting that's where they get their news but it is where they spend their leisure time.

    Every 'share' and 'like' is free advertising.

    The younger crowd is primarily focused on the parties/clubs/mega pools so they will be found over at Jack Colton's site. The topics are entirely focused on the party mindset/Vegas nightlife vs here where people are actually going to Vegas as a true vacation and look for those hidden gems and such.

    For me specifically I use both as I go to Vegas for a vacation and enjoy the pool/club scene.

    100% agreed! I always chuckle when I see a new member ask about EDC or which clubs to hit up... a couple replies will trickle in, but you're more apt to find out where the closest 24-hour CVS is that carries Miralax here! And for those of you who think I'm being mean to the VMB geezers again... note that I do know what Miralax is and know where to find it!!!

    Agree!
    At my age, when I can even remember my age, age is just a state of mind.
    Funny, when I'm in Vegas or on vacation, I'm 39. :woohoo::woohoo:
    At home it's a comfy rockin' chair :whistle:

    I can't speak for others, but while my kids were little I was on every Disney forum planning family vacations. When they got older I got active on cruise forums still planning family trips. Now that they have hit the road, it is all about me and although I still do the cruise thing, I graduated to Vegas & gambling forums. I think it just stands to reason that many people don't have the time or money to gamble until they reach a certain time of their lives.

    Now, had I lived closer to Vegas I may have fit it into my life earlier, but as a New England girl I will never know.
