Hello Everyone - I just joined the forum and find it helpful. Thanks. I am a 50+ male contemplating a solo trip to Vegas to Vegas in the end of March. I have not been to Vegas since the early 1990s. My question is where to stay. I will certainly gamble some of the time, but would like to do other things as well. The middle of the strip looks good, with a lot of things within walking distance. I have read elsewhere that staying downtown is also good and that the people are more friendly. Right now I am leaning towards Aria on the strip. Any thoughts or suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.
