Does anyone here not like Las Vegas?

Ok so I went for the first time this weekend to celebrate my B-day. I was so excited. Once I got there I was like what's the big deal? I'm not much of a gambler. I did gamble a little though. All we did was eat and go to see Cirque De Soleil which I loved. Other than that I didn't get what everyone is so crazy about. Did anyone feel this way or just me?

  • My DH want to go. But I told him. Except for gambling and shows what else is there to do there

  • I have never been a huge fan of Vegas. I won't go out of my way. But every once in a while it is a fun escape from reality. I just went this past June with the 3 kids and had a blast. We stayed in Circus Circus and spent the bulk of our time in the amusement park and at the pool. Felt rested and continued on to LA to meet up w/DH (kids and I drove and it is a natural stopping point.) There is a bunch to do outside of Vegas like Lake Mead and some other National Park/rec area stuff as well.

  • My DH and I went to Vegas when the Guggenheim motorcycle exhibit was there. We didn't go to any shows and didn't gamble a dime but enjoyed the attractions. Then again that was seven years ago and we haven't been back. So I guess I'm with you, I don't see the big deal.

  • Head to the desert when I don't drink or gamble? I don't think so. I was there once for a family reunion. I never care to go back. There are shows but I can see a show in several places that are a lot more beautiful. grannywilson

  • I don't drink, gamble, enjoy shows or amusement parks of any kind. I'd much rather go hiking/camping in the woods. Never been to Vegas, doubt I would enjoy it if I were to ever go.

  • I agree. It's not very exciting unless you are a partyer. I went for my brothers wedding a couple years ago and was totally excited. But then I realized that I don't drink and don't gamble. It was miserable! I had some good food though.

  • I think its just OK as well. I would rather ski, hike, run go and do something......

  • I went as part of a group excursion a few years back before I had kids. I didn't get the appeal either. I can think of much more fun and exciting things to do with my leisure time and vacation dollars.
