For our 5 year anniversary, my wife and I have finally been able to book a trip back to Las Vegas after more than 3 1/2 years away! And we're staying at our favorite hotel, The Mirage! We got married at Red Rock Canyon overlook and had our reception at Mon Ami Gabi in 2012. We stayed an extra week at Caesars for our honeymoon after friends and family left and it was amazing. Then in 2013, we took a short trip for our one year anniversary. Since then, we haven't been able to make the timing or budget work, especially since we bought our first house last year. It didn't look like it was happening this year, either, when multiple family members planned weddings we have to travel to around our anniversary in September. So when comp nights and good flights deals came up at the same time for May, we decided to make it an early anniversary trip! We'll be at Mirage from May 11th to May 15th. We really want to get out to Red Rock Canyon (and Casino for some 10/6 DDB) but we're trying to decide if a rental car is worth the extra money on a shorter trip where we'll already be spending a lot of time at the pool and wandering up and down the Strip. We're not hard partiers but we like to do a lot of walking - which takes a lot of energy - and I don't mind a good buzz throughout the day if I'm playing and casino hopping. Anyways, I'm excited! I've been to Las Vegas maybe seven times since I started going a decade ago but this has been the longest stretch without a trip. Looks like there have been a bunch of new projects going on the past few years, so there's going to be a lot to see. The biggest change will probably be seeing that skyline with the Linq observation wheel, which wasn't there last time. I can't wait to see that skyline again.
