Where to stay in Vegas...
Instead of staying on The Strip this time around, we rented a lovely 2Br-condo (complex had an outdoor pool!) with family that was a 30-mins drive from downtown. We did have to rent a car, but it was great to get away from the crazy hustle & bustle of downtown Vegas at the end of the day (or wee hours of the morning in our case!). Our 5-day stay almost equalled 1.5 days in a hotel on the Strip (like friends can attest who've stayed in hotels like The Flamingo & The Imperial Palace)! Really, if you don't mind a bit of a drive...the space, amenities of a condo & the complex, the $...it's well worth it & allows you to spend some of your other hard-earned $ in Vegas without guilt!
