    Hi Everyone!

    I've recently discovered this message board as I've been doing my "googling before my trip" routine. Heading to LV for 4 nights the end of July, which will be my tenth trip (small in number compared to some of what I've seen on here)!

    This board is so full of information, I wanted to join in case I am able to provide any hints or tips of my own that I manage to come up with.

    While I do enjoy being on the Strip, I favor Fremont Street personally. I like the smaller atmosphere of the casinos, the canopy, the music... just love all of it. Who am I kidding. I just love Vegas in general!

    My last trip was in March of 2017 (husband and I opted to do a rather lengthy trip to Mexico last year rather than going to Vegas), and we were out for the Monster Jam World Finals but stayed an extra three days afterward... that was when I discovered that seven days is too long to be in Vegas for me!

    Anyway - can't wait to be a part of the board and continue reading all the great posts everyone shares. Thanks! :)

    Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone!

    We've got a lot planned for this trip, but one thing I'm particularly excited for is a walking food tour we are doing that starts at the Art Bar at the Downtown Grand and ends in Container Park. I've never done anything like it so it will be a new experience for me!

    Do you usually fly from Duluth or MSP?

    Lately it's been mostly MSP. I used to fly out of DLH more often back when Allegiant was still here. I price things out. We're flying Sun Country on our next trip. Not overly excited about it, but we spent less than $300 on two tickets so we couldn't pass it up.

    Flights from DLH seem like they've shot up the last year or two IMO, at least for all of the final destinations I've been looking at.
