Las Vegas
« on: January 14, 2019, 11:58:48 PM »

I love to see Las Vegas, for the past nine years I wanted to go to Vegas to see what it's
like there. I am thinking of going there for my March Break holidays but I don't know if I
will make it there or not. I understand that the partial US government shutdown is still
on which is causing a backup at US customs and immigration checkpoints. Once the
shutdown is over then it won't be so bad.

Are there any neitizens here who are from Las Vegas?
Contrary to popular belief, not everybody goes to Las Vegas to gamble. I do not want
to go to a casino in Las Vegas because I will have no chance of winning. It's all in the
house. So what do I want to go to Las Vegas for? Well, I want to expereince what it's
like going there, the entertainment, the food, and other fun things I can do there.

One of my co-workers took a trip to Las Vegas last year, and what she told me and
what I have been researching for myself is true. The average lodging prices in Las
Vegas is fairly cheaper than most places in the USA. So I would not be looking to
spend as much money on lodging in Las Vegas as opposed to the high cost of
lodging in New York City. But the airfare I have to purchase to get to Las Vegas
from Toronto is still pretty high. But it's probably that expensive when I go there
during my March Break.

I don't plan on going overseas this summer, so perhaps I may consider going to
Las Vegas in mid-March than New York City. I could still make a road trip to New
York later in early July. So for mid-March it's either I love New York or Viva Las Vegas.

Just came back from there; lots of shows to watch (Le Reve, if you had to choose one) and plenty of places to eat (Gordon Ramsay restaurant was excellent). 

Bellagio Founatains is a free show--night time is better IMO, but I don't see why you can't do both.

I think if you're going to the west coast, you make it a comprehensive trip---visiting LA, Vegas, San Fran, Grand Canyon, etc.

For me to do a comprehensive trip, I would need more time, plus I would have to rent a car to do all that travelling in the west coast. I only have 1 week off in March, because of that I can only do one place at a time.

Just delay it, or you could find a tour company that does a west coast trip in 6 nights, 7 days. The driving for me was exhausting to be honest.

I suggest going to New York, then.

I found the best deal for a flight to Las Vegas. This deal is for a flight going from Hamilton, Ontario.
I really want to take advantage of this deal if I can book as early as now. However the partial US
government shutdown is still on, and this is effecting a lot of air travelers. It's now been 1 month
and I don't know how long this shutdown will go on because if it goes on for too long, it will not
make sense for me to book a flight to go to Las Vegas. I really love to see Las Vegas in March.

If you were in LAs Vegas during the past 2 weeks, do not be surprised if you came across a US customs guard
or any government worker making ends meat working in one of the casinos, driving a cab on Las Vegas Blvd.
or even working in a strip club. But what goes on in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas.

I just booked my airfare to Las Vegas but I will be flying on connecting flights from Toronto rather than take that
crappy discount airline from Hamilton. It seems as if I will be killing two birds in one stone because I have to
do a 17-hour layover in Vancouver, Canada and on that Monday evening I will head to Vegas.

I wonder how Las Vegas will be during mid-March in the middle of the week?
Will the crowds be smaller and the lines shorter? Will the weather be warm
enough to swim in a pool?

As for food, I have read that the most expensive food is the food you order at these
celebrity restaurants. I may have to find something cheaper or perhaps stay at the
hotel and eat. However I am a vegetarian so I don't know how vegetarian friendly
Las Vegas is.

I love to see the shows and of course I have to dress in my suit and tie for these
events. But this will be a good treat for me after dealing with this brutally cold weather
this winter.

Viva Las Vegas.

Weather wise your probably looking 60s during the day and close to freezing at night. Id check some Vegas sub reddits. You could ask recommendations for vegetarian choices. Mid week is less crowded. But could get a bit crowded towards Wednesday. When I lived there March Madness was a huge event, and Vegas Motor Speedway hosted an early NASCAR event.

If you were in Canada in the last 200 years, do not be surprised if you came across a drunk hockey player clubbing seals and eating poutine. Why are you responding to your own topic as if you were someone else?

If not then hush up.

So MayorHaggar is supposed to hush up because hes never been to Canada, but you are allowed to claim that federal employees are making ends meet working in casinos, cab drivers, or strippers.

Whats that saying about the pot and the kettle?

I just learned it snowed in Las Vegas on Monday.

I hope I don't see any snow when I am there next month.

I doubt it would matter much since most Vegas attractions are indoors and within easy walking distance.

Id be more concerned with rain. Since its so arid a good amount of rain will cause flooding in some areas. Doesnt cause much damage, but a major inconvenience.

I still need to make a quick decision.

Should I stay in a hotel near Freemont Street, or stay at a
hotel located in or within reach of The Strip?

Id stay down southern end of the strip. You could do a day at Fremont Street one day. Id recommend the Maffia museum when you check out Fremont Street.

IMO, the Strip. That's where the shows, the shopping, most people...are at.

I could not find any good hotels within my budget down in the strip. Plus I have read review about the Westgate Hotel that were not so good.

So I found a good hotel to stay at by Freemont Street. I can always ride the local SDX bus from
there to get to the Strip.
