    Good morning, Everyone
    Just joined, but I have been lurking in the shadows reading posts on the forum. I love Las Vegas and I'm so excited to be going with my husband in August to celebrate my birthday and we're celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary a few months early. I've been twice, but this is my husband's first trip. Can't wait to show him everything Vegas. Of course we love to gamble, so definitely looking forward to that. We live a couple hours from Biloxi, but I told my husband it's a different kind of world in Las Vegas compared to Biloxi. I'm in count down mode.

    Let me add my welcome too. We are in Florida as well and likely drive past your place when we do Biloxi by car. The Panhandle is a nice area to live and has the most beautiful beaches .

    We live in Niceville, it's north across the bay from Destin, but we're 15 minutes from the beach. Close enough without being in the crazy tourist traffic. LOL!!!!

    I see you found the thread.
    We will miss you by 3 days as we arrive after you leave. I am sure there will be a few people from this board in Vegas around the same time as you.
    If you have any Vegas questions I am sure you know there are plenty of different sections available on this web site for asking and plenty of people willing to help.
    Best of luck on your trip.

    Thanks LV,
    We were originally suppose to go on the 14th, but family through in a monkey wrench that week, so it got moved to the 20th. Which worked out PERFECT. Flying from a different airport made our flight go from 338 a ticket to 160. I personally think it's what they call a mistake fare. I've seen 147 one way, but not 160 roundtrip. And flying from Birmingham Alabama.
