Have you ever been to Las Vegas?
« on: May 27, 2011, 01:00:35 pm »
Me and my husband just got back from Las Vegas a week ago. It was our first time there, and it was so much fun! Surprisingly we didn't do much gambling; instead, we did a lot of sightseeing and shows. The scenery was so different from the Easter part of the country. Here we are used to grassy hills and treetops, whereas in Las Vegas we got to see these huge mountainscapes. It truly was beautiful. How about you? Have you been to good old Sin City? If so, let's hear about your experiences!

I love Vegas.  I used to live there.  I used to have an apartment behind the Imperial Palace.  I got a kick out of doing my banking at Ceasar's Palace (the ATM).  I love the 24 hour lifestyle.  I don't gamble, but the buffets and shows are fun.  I met a few rock stars in the casinos, after their concerts.  I hated leaving, but I've fallen in love with New Mexico now.  I haven't been back in years but would like to, when I have travel money again.

I grew up back East.  I know what you mean about the scenery.  Our skies were so dull and you couldn't see anything past the houses and trees.  Since then I've lived in Utah, Vegas and New Mexico and just love the mountains, the wide open spaces, the desert climate.

Since your draw was the entertainment and not the gambling you might like New Mexico.  I invite you to come for Balloon Fiesta (starting the first Saturday of October) and explore our local cultures.  (I do not work for the state, I just love it.)

       I do not know why some people called Las Vegas "Sin City"? In english "Sin City" means City of Sin or sinful city! In Spanish means "City without". Without---what? Does anyone really know the meaning of "Sin City"? Where it really came from? What it really means? Anyways, I visited Las Vegas once! And I like it there was so much to see and do besides gambling!

I've been twice.  I have an aunt and coworker that live there.  After about a day I get tired of the casino's.  I like that the food is so cheap out there.

I used to go at least twice a year.  I was married to someone who loved gambling.  Not in excess of what he could afford, but we had great times there.  We always stayed free and our meals and shows were comped too.  Well, I am sure the casinos probably made out just fine on that deal even though we felt like things were free.  lol

I went during spring break while in college... many many years ago! It was fun. I won a few hundred, enough to pay for the trip! Haven't been since then.

No I have never been to Las Vegas. But I have always wondered what it is like there; maybe one day I will go.

I went years ago when I was 17 with my family (so I couldn't gamble), but I am going this summer with all my old friends from school so we will for sure be having fun. Plan on staying at one of the hotels on the strip and gamble some FC money :P

I got married there a few years ago. At the City Hall, where we got our marriage licenses, we saw other lovebirds in line wearing matching Lakers jerseys, biker outfits, etc. Our wedding ceremony was performed by an ordained pastor of the Tropical Christian Church in a cheesy little chapel. It was a fun experience.

I was there quite a few years ago.  It was a pleasant experience, but I am not overly anxious to go back again.
