    The day is finally here.. tonight, I will be in fabulous Las Vegas! (I've never been.)

    I'm a newbie here and I stumbled upon this forum when looking for LV trip reports. Hello, all! :)

    My wonderful-can-literally-do-nothing-wrong Prince Charming of a boyfriend is taking me to Vegas for my 31st birthday (10/12). We will be staying at TI tonight through tomorrow night. After that, we are hopping over to Luxor for three nights. I have always wanted to stay in the pyramid ever since I discovered Vegas when I was much younger. The Grand Canyon will be our home for the last two nights in a mini car camping adventure.

    Going to do my best to keep this "live". Our flight leaves from Orlando later today.

    We are stocked up on rewards from myVegas- room comps, a buffet and show comp, plus bogo buffets, drinks, etc. You get the picture.

    During this trip, my boyfriend will have his first club experience. A couple of my favorite DJs will be at XS on my birthday. I'm curious to see how he likes it. After doing my research, clubs in LV seem like a totally different ballgame compared to other large cities like NYC or Miami, both of which I've been to clubs at. We are on a guestlist. Hopefully we don't have to wait more than an hour if we get there early.. ;)

    Going to spend the next few hours doing last minute packing. I'm so excited! Thanks in advance for following along, if you choose to :p

    One thing I really enjoy is trip planning. My boyfriend jokes that I know more about Vegas than he does! This will be his third trip out there.

    Trip planning is almost as good as actually being there, mostly because it's the cheaper part haha. I tend to have a whole list of things.. checking all the websites and bingo pots, then I take the yellow guy on google maps for walks down the strip... I end up doing almost none of the stuff I plan when I get there, but it beats trying to figure out what to do while you're there because it's a bit overwhelming.

    Welcome to Vegas Fanatics, and I hope both of you have a blast in Vegas! Sounds like you’re already much more Vegas savvy than the average first timers!

    I didn’t want to go into this trip blind! Started playing myVEGAS well before I knew I would actually be going.

    I’ll add bandaids to the mix. It’s going to be chilly at night.. and freezing at the Grand Canyon!

    Its usually freezing in the casinos too. You might need an actual jacket for night.. but in vegas it tends to be really hot outside and really cold inside. The things was always buying when I first went were flip flops because my feet were all blisters, bandaids and shawls. Earplugs once.

    Welcome to Vegasfanatics forum, and Happy Birthday. Hope you enjoy your birthday in Vegas and win some lucky money too. You and I shared the same birthday, and I am celebrating my birthday at my local casino. I have just started my TR on Non-Vegas Trip Report.

    I apologize if anyone saw my messed up post previously. Instead of my glass of wine, it showed a picture of my cart at Trader Joe’s..

    Thanks to everyone for your birthday and luck wishes! I’ll be happy if myself or my boyfriend win something. It will certainly be an experience.

    Nothing terribly exciting
    You already sound like a Vegas veteran. Sounds like a great trip plan. I like mixing it up with the Grand Canyon at the end too.

    Good luck and happy birthday!

    Welcome to the forum, happy birthday, and have a wonderful trip!

    But please, please don't get your hopes up on the pyramid. It's unique yes, but unless you're in a recently renovated Cleopatra room, it shows its age. I think LAX night club closed at Luxor, but I still wouldn't take room 6020 just in case. My gf wasn't happy that night!

    We made it!

    Checked into TI, tried the $20 sandwich, got a third floor room overlooking the roof of the casino and a couple next door fighting.. with a connecting room. So, we went back down to the front desk. Because of the inconvenience, we magically received a room on the 34th floor with a strip view! I screamed when we saw the view!

    (Security will be doing a wellness check on our old connecting room-mates.)
