Haven't lived there in years, but remember it taking two hours to go from MGM to downtown transportation center. Don't know Clark County has made any infrastructure changes in 10 plus years. Better of with an uber and casually making your way back. Could check Stratosphere. Also.check around online. Sometimes can get a good deal with Boyd gaming. My dad visits early summer and late fall and usually gets a deal that includes a daily dinning credit. Believe it's   redeemable at any restaurant on the property. A budget hotel casino with a good location would be silver sevens on Flamingo and Paradise. Easy access to Ballys\Paris, Caesars, Bellagio.

Don't know your budget or your dates, but check out Harrahs, Circus Circus, Excalibur, Hooters. Are all on the less expensive side and on the strip.

Tuscany hotel and casino is behind Ballys\Paris. Short walk to the strip. So is Ellis Island. Check out coast casinos. They used to run a shuttle from Gold coast and Orleans to the strip.

There is a monorail but that's only one shot line. The monorail only comes handy and accessible to
those who stay at hotels like Westgate.

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.
Honestly, from what I read about your dissatisfaction with your job, I would forgo the vacations for now and save money for an “FU Fund” so you can walk away from it.

This is why I do not plan on travelling overseas for this summer. But guess what? My mother is retired and
living in Jamaica so I got to make time for that.

Netizens:

I just got back from my trip in Las Vegas last week. In fact I did a 17 hour layover last Monday in
Vancouver and went to Las Vegas that Monday evening. I spent 4 nights in Las Vegas.

Oh Man! Let me tell you! I really enjoyed Las Vegas so much that out of all the US cities I have
been to, Las Vegas has now and so far become my favorite city in the USA to travel. The nightly
entertainment is so classy, (but can also be sultry hehehehe). Words cannot describe how I felt
when I was in Las Vegas, not to mention how I dressed up during the evenings to go out to the strip.
(The weather was still cool enough but th nights felt a bit chilly). I got to see only one show but
if you want to know what show I saw, I will tell you in a private message.

The only issue I have with Las Vegas is that it's fairly expensive. One ticket booth person who
lived in Las Vegas for 15 years told me that 9 years ago after the economic crisis, everything in
Las Vegas was cheaper. The hotels were cheaper, the show tickets were cheaper, and public pa
parking was free. I believed her because in 2010 I saw the hotel costs for a few places like the
Flamingo, it was at $40/night! But now this is 2019 so Las Vegas is not cheap anymore.

Another issue I saw is the poverty. Most of the poverty I have seen was in downtown Las Vegas
on and around Freemont Street. The 24 hour Deuce bus had local riders who used their bus
passes to just sleep on the busses during the night because they are homeless and need to
stay warm at night. If I was living in Las Vegas I would take time to do some voluntary work
to do my part to fight a war against poverty in Las Vegas, so I can really help Las Vegas to be
Fabulous Las Vegas.

Most of all, Las Vegas is a party city. Other party cities I have been to include, Montreal, Tokyo,
Seoul, and Pattaya. Montreal is only a partial party city because people party there on weekends
and holidays only but when they party, they party. You will see the same thing in Seoul if you
go to places like Gangnam or Itaewon, and also in Roppongi in Tokyo. People party there from
dusk till dawn. Pattaya is the cheapest of them all. Las Vegas and Pattaya are both the biggest
sin cities in the world and they are party cities. But with living in Canada there is a visa versa,
The airfare to Pattaya is more expensive but partying in Pattaya is cheaper. Las Vegas is more
expensive for partying, but the airfare to Las Vegas from Canada is cheaper.

I really love to return to Las Vegas once again. When? I don't know.
