Arrive morning, afternoon or Evening?

When is your favorite time to arrive to Vegas?

I used to prefer morning but now I perfer evening and that is only because on the home end it is easier with my kids.

Afternoon is probably my favorite, I can live with evening.

Don't like the morning.

Early afternoon - most times our room is ready and we can shower off the airplane funk, get something to eat, and ease into the Vegas mindset.

Evening just encourages us to rush around a DO something right away.

Late morning whether I'm driving or flying. That way there is a full afternoon to enjoy on the first day.

Either mid or late afternoon because that means I didn't have to take some gawd awful early morning flight.

I usually pull into town right at 1pm. I stay downtown so the rooms are usually ready.

I'm going to do that some day myself, Rayce. Sounds great. I just worry there won't be much of a selection of rooms in my hotel if I fly in that late.

The virgin flight from the UK arrives early afternoon which is perfect usually at the hotel around 3. This is also good because if we're unlucky enough to be delayed then we should still arrive in plenty of time to enjoy the first night unlike the BA flight which gets you in around 8pm so if that's delayed you could be very unlucky. In saying all this there's never a bad time to arrive in Vegas.

The advantage to have gone often and frequently is we no longer feel the need to milk every minute out of each trip. No inconvenient early morning or late night flights for us.

So we arrive between 11am-1pm. Our favorite, and most frequent flight home leaves at 2:15pm. This way we can leave right around 12:30 for the airport. Don't have to get up early or be without a room. Yes we are spoiled. lol
