Vegas is overrated

I found Vegas to be an overrated bloodsucking town

ready made for suckers. I won't be back anytime soon.

Orlando is better. It actually gives back in terms of

fun, instead of draining you dry, and then leaving you with the illusion that you're really getting something for your dollar, other than being taken by the slot machines and huge, unbearable crowds everywhere you go.

UsTrav,

I think this is a post for the Orlando forum.

Agree with shrinkgirl.....

Just for fodder.....I get more entertainment and fun from the slot machines than I have when I was in other tourist destinations (not Orlando specifically) paying outrageous amounts for theme park t-shirts and food. Everyone has their own opinions...sorry you didn't like Vegas.

You're either very brave or very stupid to leave this post here. I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the fun.

P.S. Orlando has huge, unbearable crowds compunded by having spent the entire day in unearthly humidity.

this is a fine post for the LV forum - it's your opinion LV.

some will agree with you - no one city or travel destination is perfect for everyone, i'm glad you found a place you like.

I have loads of fun in LV - have for decades and have not put one cent into a slot machine. slots aren't fun fo me, many love them and since it's all about personal choice you don't have to play slots of you don't want to.

for me, i get a value for my dollar (i am frugal and always get a value no matter where i am!), i avoid crowds when possible and enjoy nice rooms, spas, shows, restaurants.

to each his own - orlando works for many, as do other estinations.

I get the feeling this poster lost all their money the first day at the slot machines.
