hey armymom, it was cool reading your experience in Las Vegas. i've never been over there before, but would love to. but not real soon. rather in the coming years. for the moment i'm planning a vacation in Brazil
but seems like you had a real nice time overall, even if there were certain setbacks?
how was the wedding? glad to hear that you enjoyed it
just for future reference, was it really high costwise? or sort of alright?
Glad you enjoyed my post! Costwise it wasn't bad. We flew from Illinois, air and hotel was total of about $860 for 2 of us for 3 nights. Food was astronomical, in my opinion. First day lunch at Sbarro's pizza - one slice of pizza and a soda $9. We ended up eating at McDonald's once a day off the dollar menu. If you drink, that is high too - 12 oz draft beer $6. My son drank Crown and Coke - $12.00. We bought a 12 pack of beer (almost $20 on the strip) and kept it in the room. We're not huge drinkers, so didn't affect us that much, but still when you're on vacation, kind of nice to have a drink and relax. The wedding itself cost my son and his wife $1200 for not much, but as I said the ceremony was really nice and they had a little reception afterward at the chapel with veggies, cheese and crax, chips and such, punch and cake. We plan on going back sometime in the future. If you are flexible about when you can go, you can check rates and get some really good deals. Example, we found a package for air fare and staying at the Sahara for 3 nights for around $200 a person! Of course, not when we were going. Depends on what is going on out there, I guess, i.e., conventions, shows, etc. A cab to the airport from the Excalibur was $11.00 plus tip. Not bad. It's a different world everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime.
