    Max was 4 times in one year. Average 2 or 3. Fly from the East Cost.
    We've missed an LA flight home twice over the years and rented a car
    and drove to Vegas for a few extra days then flew out of Vegas to home.

    Last year (2020) 8 times, though one was during the shut down. We wanted to see what everything was like when it was shut down. We normally travel 8-10 times a year and Vegas got all of that last year due to most of the rest of the world being shut down. Once things get back to normal everywhere else we'll go back to 3 times a year in vegas. Travel from Nashville (BNA) so 4 hours there, 3.5 hours back. All on SW with a companion pass. I work 4-10s so taking 2 days off gives me a 5 day weekend. That's our preferred duration anywhere stateside, 4 nights.
    Have been twice so far this year with our 3rd scheduled for next Friday (for 8 nights which I'm kind of dreading but the wife is very excited about) and a 4th scheduled for June. As much as I love Vegas I'm so ready to start going other places again.

    Well Michigan was locked down hard, Vegas was an escape and provided some normalcy.

    I've only been to Vegas more than once a year one time - and that was merely twice. I was planning on going twice in 2020 but wellllllll you know the rest.

    I have also never visited a Red Lobster while there.

    17 if you prefer more of a straight route. It's almost asking for a visit.

    I have been to Vegas 4 times in a year twice: In 2018, and just recently between March, 2020 and March 2021.
    It is about a 4 hour flight for me.

    I have been going annually since 2011 - usually a summer trip. In 2015, I was able to make two trips (although one was for a work conference, so doesn't really count).

    Never been to Red Lobster there, though :D:D

    Hey, I have an idea! Why don't you accompany @EastCoastVegasFan! ? I think I heard he's fond of 30 shrimp and seeking a dinner companion for his June trip...:whistle:

    It is slightly over a two hour flight for me from Portland. When life allowed I was making 4 trips, usually January, May, September and December. I think one year I squeezed in an extra trip, so five would be the most in any year. Even during a bad year when animal health and DH's surgeries caused me to cut back I usually made it twice. I'm not sure how I'll proceed from here. I've come to enjoy RV camping at the locals, no airport BS, no resort fees, got my own kitchen and all my stuff. I'll be going to Vegas in either May or June, or both. Those trips will likely determine the future for me and Vegas, plus how much airfare escalates, comps given, etc. I do believe that the 4-5 trip years are gone, and 2, maybe 3 becomes the norm.
