We were supposed to go to Rome for a few days this year over Christmas [12.22 - 12.28], which of course is a no go. We were thinking of heading to Vegas instead - crazy? Would be myself, wife and 12 year old daughter. My assumption is no pools, but so long as the restaurants are open, and we can do some gambling that works for me. We would also rent a car so we could take a day and check out Death Valley Park or other areas to do some hiking. I have been to Vegas several times, but each time stayed at Wynn or Venetian. I would like to try something else - the MGM properties all have a lot of comp day offers - though not sure which are worth staying in? Aria looked nice. Cosmo as well. Thoughts/suggestions?
