Please Help!!!!

My boyfriend and I are going to Vegas the 18-21. We haven't been getting along very well lately and I would like a great trip to help us out. What can we do that can be romantic and fun? Nice restaurants, good clubs??? We are 31. Need advice bad. We also like to gamble(of course!!). Shows, clubs, restaurants, any advice appreciated. Thanks

Just my opinion, but Vegas is the wrong place to try and save a relationship. There are wonderful romantic places (like Mon Ami Gabi at The Paris) - but there are also hassles, lines, and lots of expenses. All things that can aggravate a relationship already on the edge.

My advice would be to ditch Glitter Gulch and head to a quite beach resort somewhere where you can relax and state into each other's eyes and recapture the feelings that brought your hearts together in the first place.

I truly with you the best of luck.

Lock yourselves in your room, live off room service. Make sure you get a jacuzzi tub.

A trip to Vegas can test any relationship. I wish you the best of luck. If I were you, I'd make up my mind to have a great time no matter what happens. I know, easier said than done, but don't make things worse by trying too hard.

You could go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, ride the roller coasters at NYNY and the Sahara, see the Titanic exhibit, go through the shark reef at Mandalay Bay, go on a gondola ride, etc.

As far as restaurants go, you could try Margaritaville at the Flamingo. That should be fun.

Just make sure your name is on the room reservations so you can get into the room if things go sour.

Traveling Dragon is absolutely right. Vegas is too stressful a place for you to go to rekindle. In addition to the crowds, the lines, the expense, the booze, the stresses of gambling, there are also a lot of young women walking around, determined to show off all their assets in the most provocative manner. So he will look (all guys [heterosexual, anyway] will look), and you might get pissed off - even if you don't show it, you will be pissed.

A quiet beach resort is far better for the rekindling experience.

Don't those same young women go around on the beaches wearing a few strings showing off their assets?

You probably already have your trip booked, the airfare if a good one can't be changed but the hotel can. Why not stay out at Lake Las Vegas, it would be a much healthier atmosphere for your relationship. If you need some more action (crowds, noise and bars full of party people) you can drive into the Strip.

I totally agree Vegas is not the place to rekindle a relationship. I would go to a more peaceful place where you can spend quality time together without all the distractions. The beach would be a wonderful place for this to happen.

If your boyfriend is as enthused about going as you are, then by all means go. Three days fly by fast in Vegas.

I'd just wing it with plenty of relaxing pool time followed by whatever strikes you both as fun, not necessarily romantic. Take a helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon. Hang out and play at the older low-stakes "Old Vegas" casinos, the grubbier the better. Drive up to Valley of Fire State Park for a half-day. etc.

When going through a rough patch, a lot of guys will get uncomfortable with a schedule filled with blatantly "romantic" activities. We know what's going on -- and we just can't handle the pressure!
