Hi HowardK! Just found this post.
I have been to Las Vegas several times solo and twice with friends/family. When it comes to Las Vegas, as much as I love my family and my friends too, I prefer to go to Las Vegas solo, or with an equally independant travel buddy!
I absolutely hate to be dragged away from a "good" machine because everyone is hungry
Also, I have seen all the sights, and no longer want to go here there and everywhere that others want to go, when I have seen it all before. Las Vegas is for me, a place for a great solo retreat and I admit to being a bit selfish when it comes to my gambling time.
That being said; 5 days in that city and I am about to go NUTS! I much prefer three days ideally, and even two days would work for me nowadays. Havent been there in a few years, as it is a long trip by air for me, and costly, and my vacation of choice is now a cruise. The casino onboard is not Las Vegas, but at least, I have so much else to do and see, that the casino is not actually the highlight of my vacation.
Love the sight of ocean! Like the open decks, and the covered ones at times. I like having all those food choices, and the entertainment, and the casino is there for when I want to spin a slot machine! also get to a few different destinations and can explore new places or old favorites.
This just me, but for the time being, I can only get away once a year for a week or 10days max, for several reasons, and if I have to choose, it will be a cruise for me!
