I have never been to Las Vegas. I don't especially have a desire to go there, but I am glad that you had a great time! That's great!

I went on my honeymoon in Vegas, and went there 2 other times. Of course, we got divorced last week, so maybe we should've picked somewhere else!

Seriously though, it is a fun, albeit sort of depressing place.

       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!

They call it "sin city"  because the casino/gambling/strip part of it got a reputation for "sinful" behavior:  greed, substance abuse, adultery, etc.  As they say "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas".

However, the town itself is quite family oriented and has such a large Mormon population that they built a temple there.  There's much to do there without gambling.  It's also in easy reach of Lake Mead and some cool mountain villages (I forgot the names) that have chalet style houses amidst the trees.  Quite a break from the heat.  If you enjoy people watching the casinos are great for that, 24 hours a day.

I've never had any interest in going.  I would like to go to the Balloon Festival in New Mexico that someone mentioned.

I was out there the first week in April to celebrate my wife's birthday because what happens in Vegas stays in vegas...she figures that she will never grow any older! Wild times!  All day spent at the pool and out partying/dancing the night away.  The last night, after all of our friends left, my wife got hooked into a craps table and one $1,000.00.  If she had known how to bet she would have made $25,000.00 like the man next to her...who's girlfriend kept asking me if we were swingers!  Too crazy and no shortage of stories!

Back in 2002 I went to Vegas but I was like 13. My Mom, Aunt, little sister, and I were going to Hawaii to visit my older sister who lived there at the time. We had to stay over night in Vegas to catch our connecting flight. I haven't been back since but I'm not a big gambler so I don't know if I ever will.

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.
It seems like allot of people get married there. I know someone that recently flew out there to get married instead of having a full wedding. My husband's brother also got married there. I understand the wanting to make it simple however we opted for getting married in our garden with a friend as the minister.
