Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.
Anytime is a good time to go to Las Vegas.
Good morning everyone,
Heading to Las Vegas tomorrow. It's my wife's birthday and I thought, why not? We went there five years ago when she celebrated another significant bday. This will be our fourth time there altogether.
While there are plenty of gambling and entertainment opportunities there (more than pretty much anywhere else in the world), there are two things that really draw us there.
We love the celebrity chef restaurants and the shopping. For her birthday dinner, we're going to Emril Lagasse's DelMonico in the Venetian. We also enjoy Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill and I think we're going there Sunday morning for brunch.
Las Vegas is a shopper's paradise. I have become an expert at finding benches in the Fashion Show Mall and the Miracle Mile Shops.
Everyone needs a little "Vegas" everry now and again.
There's just something about Vegas, that's for sure. My husband and I try to go for a few days every couple of years. I wouldn't make it our big vacation, but for an extra long weekend, or to celebrate a special event, it's the ticket. We're not big gamblers, but we like to dabble. We love the lights, shows, restaurants, history and the all around fun atmosphere. My favorite casinos are the old timers downtown. Speaking of that, we're due a trip there this year!
Have a great time, Glenn, and Happy Birthday to your wife!!

I saw Love, the Beatles Cirque show 3 times in 1 year, lol. I love that show. It is wonderful. I've been to Vegas over 40 times (friends live there) and NEVER EVER went to a show there until the "Love Cirque de Soleil" show. I was hooked. I went in Dec, then June and again in Sept, lol. Definitely, defintely see it if you go there.
I love Vegas!!! And you're right, the shopping is the best there but i usually jump in my car and go off strip shopping.
Haha. Dear hubby has been hemming and hawing about Vegas for yrs.
We would probably go to Aruba in May 2013 but checking out
Vegas for November. Also we would fit in Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam.
That sounds like a great trip, and a good time of year to be taking it. We went to Vegas once in August (dovetailed it was a business trip), and it was crazy hot. If you plan to take in a show or two, I would also recommend the Beatles show (Love) and The Jersey Boys. Both are fantastic and I'd be hardpressed to pick one over the other. Also, if you have time, we really enjoy going downtown to the Freemont Street casinos and to see the evening light show. We've never gone long enough to see the Grand Canyon or Hoover Dam, but I'd like to one day.
