    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.

    A little more info on what you like to do and budget will help! the Aria is a great higher end place that is pretty much center strip.

    Gambling limits and hotel rates will certainly be cheaper downtown. But you miss the glitz of the strip. it is not unheard of to "break" a trip up into multiple hotels either. Lots of people will stay at one place for a few days and then switch to the other end of the strip for a few days.

    Welcome from IL as well. Aria is a nice property my mom stayed there, it is a bit set back off the strip.
