    If you were to spend 3-4 days in Vegas, what are the days of the week you like to go?

    I have always only gone on a weekend, but always want to book early week mid week, but then never want to miss the weekend.

    I prefer to go midweek with no major conventions in town. I spend 90% of my time at the tables so access to tables with little to no crowds is what I am looking for.

    I try to avoid weekends, especially Saturday nights...hate the crowds but do enjoy the eye candy.

    I'm a midweek guy as well with the caveat of football season. In the fall my trips always include the weekend as I'll hit the sportsbook and I like having action on the games. Outside of that give me easier reservations, less crowds, easier navigation, and my choice of tables/games.

    There is some level of "busy" I need though. I once went out like a 7-10 days before Christmas and it was WAY too quiet. It's eerie when you walk into a casino and you can see clear through the whole place with about a dozen players scattered around. Plus you have shows and restaurants that close during that time. Give me some people for some buzz but not the packed crowds.

    My ideal trip is to go on a Saturday and stay til Weds/Thurs. this way I get one fun weekend night but the rest is pretty quiet. Love being there on a Monday night when everyone's left for the weekend.

    Unfortunately my dream requires more days off from work and if I go with friends, they're not usually able to do that.

    Yeah there is a funny feeling when Monday comes and everyone leaves, it's like I almost feel special I'm on vacation and most of the crowd had to go.

    But like stackinchips said, I do like the vibe off of a crowd.

    I'm not a vegas pro, are most restaurants and shows still open early in the week?

    Friday to Monday only because thats how the direct flight plan works out. I could always try Monday to Friday, but taking off that much work isn't easy all the time.

    I like whenever I can get the best flight prices :). We normally do Sun-Thurs, we've done Friday-Monday before and it was too crowded.

    Some shows are dark, but plenty are still open. No problem with restaurants that I know of.
    We prefer Sat-Wed as well, but normally work in holidays and weekends to save vacation days.

    For the last few years we’ve primarily avoided weekends. Basically come in on an 8:30am flight on Monday and go home on the Friday night at 11:55pm. Gives us 5 full days and the crowds are light until Thursday.

    I like Friday to Friday, but I only go a couple times a year. You get the weekend buzz/energy, but then, like @jenblase said, you also get that great feeling of having tons of vacay left after everyone else goes home!

    My favorite time frame is Tuesday arrival, Saturday morning departure....mainly because flights are usually more reasonable, check in is usually not too big of a hassle, and we get to enjoy one weekend night, downside is like @jenblase said, uses up more vacation days... With that said, our next trip is a Friday - Tuesday, mainly because we are scheduled for a concert on Saturday night...

    My next trip is Wed - Sunday, although I usually do the opposite and do Sunday - Thursday.

    I like it being less busy because I'm frequently in full degen mode so I like my pick of machines or tables at all hours. If I'm planning a good craps session I get so annoyed by drunken buffoonery when I'm just trying to get my gamble on.

    I love flying in around sunrise on Sunday mornings: the streets and casinos are fairly quiet and low key until noonish. I feel like I have the town to myself. Each morning by 6am are my my favorite times for a few hours until people start waking up and coming down.

    We almost always do an early morning flight on a Thursday, which arrives in Vegas before 11am. Then we leave on Monday around noon. I get two less busy days and two crazy days which is usually all I can handle. Lol Thursday I always go completely Degenerate and am drunk by 5pm. Usually end up in bed before 1am. Then up showered and down playing slots by 8am on Friday.

    Because of work we typically arrive on a Thursday, and fly out on Monday. Which is not bad on a "normal" weekend, until Saturday night, but then we just avoid the Strip.

    My preference is to arrive on Monday and leave on Friday however. I like Vegas during the week because it's so much easier to get around/do things etc.

    This is exactly how I like to do it too - one busy night then a few quieter ones.
