Why we chose Las Vegas for a Christmas vacation.

I somewhat despise excess. Anything too run of the mill, fake, or contrived. It might seem that Las Vegas would be the last place I would chose for a vacation, nevermind a vacation over Christmas. While Las Vegas could be seen as more commercial than say, a sleigh-ride in the woods, it's not half bad either. You can eat, and sleep and be merry. You'll notice that I didn't say gamble, but that's just me. The seven reasons we chose Las Vegas for a vacation: 1. Our family could easily visit us from Arizona. 2. There are fabulous restaurants and hotels. Relaxing. No phone calls, no cooking, no cleaning. 3. Las Vegas has pretty good odds of being warmer than Calgary, Canada. The possibility of a temperature of -30°C in Vegas is unlikely. 4. A flight to Vegas is a straight shoot. 5. People-watching. 6. Shopping. 7. Walk-ability. We can walk, and walk, and walk.

It looks like you did Las Vegas the right way. Samba Sushi, Venetian, Bouchon's, all top quality.

I've threatened for years to book a flight to Vegas for Christmas--I like your logic!

I agree with you. Vegas is a quick three hour flight from Minneapolis so we find ourselves there often, sometimes just to evade this frozen tundra. There is so much to do for those of us who are not into excess. Although, I do find time for roulette. :o)

I thought I would hate Vegas, but I ended up loving it!
