  • I don't think you are being selfish. Save the Vegas trip for when she is old enough to appreciate it.

  • they do have stuff here to do for kids too, a awesome light show on the strip.... but unless you have a sitter since you want to gamble... It would depend on your wants. Just saying do you want to share thisbeautiful place with her or wouldyou rather take some time for yourself and relax??

  • i have to agree with the other posters, Vegas is for adults.

    Go and have FUN. You might not get another chance like this.

  • My best friend got married in LV and both our 4 year olds were there... We played at Circus Circus but I will tell you, unless you have a sitter you aren't getting any adult time. You child will love seeing the lights and the "shows" that are along the strip.
