I love Las Vegas for many reasons. First being I can get a ticket on Southwest Airlines for $69 each way from Denver and the flight time is slightly over an hour. I love that each hotel I have stayed on the strip has a fabulous pool. The restaurants are AMAZING. I enjoy walking through each hotel and checking out the different themes.
Here's a how a 2 day trip to Viva Las Vegas works - it's much easier if you live in the states to have a weekend there.
