What's the first thing you do when you arrive?

After check-in, we usually go to sleep so that we can stay awake later. (We usually arrive at the hotel around 2:00.)

We usually get in late-- a flight leaving Chicago at 8:30 pm, arriving in LV around 10:30 pm. The first thing we do- after cabbing from the airport to the Mirage- I go get us a drink from the lobby bar while husband gets us checked in. Beer for him, jaegerbomb for me. Nothing says welcome to Vegas like that first jaegerbomb. We check in- run up to the room to change- and head back down to the casino for (hopefully) our first lucky run. Aaaa, so exciting just thinking about it!

Go down to the shops (ABC etc) for bottled water, snacks and wine. Back to room, unpack with a glass of wine then hit the strip for a walk.

check in and then slide over to Casino Royale for our first beer and toast the people in our lives that we lost since the last trip to Vegas a nice little tradition

I always race down to baggage claim and step outside to feel the desert air. Being from Ohio, and always travelling in the spring, it is normally the warmest air I feel in months.

If you 'really' want to know what you asked, go to the search feature, and type that question in. There are 115 pages of people who have asked the same thing.

Me...I check in, and head for the slots, and grab my first lemon drop martini.

Check-in, get to a slot machine and begin training the cocktail waitress.

Stop and get beer, head for the hotel and start picking up show tickets I bought in advance.
