    Been vacationing in LV once a year for over a decade. Once was able to squeeze in 2 trips (hurricane nixed the annual beach vacation). All except once the trip to LV was with my wife. One year our PTO days got way out of sync due to some family obligations my wife had to take time for. Vegas is really the only place I would vacation solo. Not as fun as when my wife is with me but still fun. Over the years we have found that a Vegas trip length to be about right at 4 or 5 nights. Living in the humid mid-west our bodies can take only so much of the dry air. At about the 5th day we start to get nosebleeds, and show signs of living mummification and need to get back home. Thus far we have stayed at the following : Paris, Flamingo, Monty-Carlo (now gone), and Mirage. We will be adding another to this list as we have reservations at the Mirage for later this month, and its not open. Been hearing that we will be informed of what resort they are pushing our reservation off to via e-mail. So we will add a new place to this list for better or worse.

    While I didn't grow up in Indiana, I am a proud IU grad and lived in Indy for three years in my early 20s. Visited many parts of the state, from a drunken wedding in Ft. Wayne to shooting guns out of the back of a pickup in Tell City. Good times!
