Las Vegas Here We Come-But I Need Some Help..

Friday, September 17, 2010

As my regulars may know, Gerry will be 50 at the end of October, so I wanted to do something special.
We thought about a cruise but I heard negative reviews- or shall I say I read quite a few and I changed my mind. I would however like to hear from anyone who did go and good and bad experiences please, as it may be something we will consider in the future, but for now, we are going back to Las Vegas.

We were there when I frst got together with Gerry, 4 years ago, but hadn't rented a car and didn't see more than the strip.
This time we are renting a car and going to The Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon.
Since we are still RCI timeshare members, we were able to get a one week timeshare stay for $340-and that included the tax.
I am looking for any deals on car rentals right now. If you know of any-no specific ,rental company that has great rates or perhaps online codes?
Any help appreciated.
We need to do this as cheap as possible.
The timeshare place we rented will really help as it comes with a kitchenette so that will save on eating meals out.

I look forward to your replies.
P.S We are leaving October 30th, the day after my doctor appt. in the city.


  1. has tons of Vegas restaurants on it. Use zip code 89084 that will get you close enough to search within 15 miles.

  2. Happy 50th to your dh (dear husband)..!!!

    I'm in my 50th year too.. I call it that when I turned 49 in April.. I always make myself one year older.. the way I see it when you turn 49 you finished 49 years so now in your 50th.. lol.

    I feel GREAT.

    And he must too; doing all those home projects..a great way to stay healthy..

  3. We went there 20 years ago or so. None of the big theme hotels were there back then. Circus Circus was the big deal. Many of the casinos had inexpensive buffets, but I don't know if that is still the case. We had small children when we visited, so didn't sample much of what Vegas had to offer.
    We saw Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. We were doing a SW trip, so we went to Carlsbad Caverns, White Sands, the Sonora Desert, and Santa Fe among other places. There is just a lot of driving involved when you try to do much out West.
    I hope you have a good trip.

    My sister and her husband just went on a Carnival cruise and had a great time. We have had friends that did the Alaskan coastal cruise and loved it. We hope to do that one soon.

  4. Nice to know.We will be in Las Vegas area longer this time than last time we went.
    I think I won't know till I actually do things myself to experience- so may do the cruise sometime- but it will be the Vegas this time...
    thank you for sharing.
