with a little work Vegas can still be one of the cheapest vacations available. A quick breakdown of my vegas history involved in march trip and upcoming september trip. $400 gambling losses at local CET casinio got us room offers in vegas. $150 resort fee in vegas in march $250 for Sam's Town in March 2 days. $800in gambling losses in March. One free night Ellis Island in September. 6 total free nights at Sam's Town in September 3 each from two players. Disregarding airfare that's two weeks in vegas for $1600 with the possibility of making a profit on gambling in september. By the third trip in July of 19 rooms should be free again So if we actually come out ahead in gambling.. will be 3 weeks for less than 1600. Just checked one week in Key West which would be one of the only other places I'd like to visit. Doesnt look much cheaper than 1000 for a week with no chance of getting free rooms in the future. I wouldnt even begin to look at what a Disney vacation would run.
