Longest Visit to Vegas ?

What is your longest stay in Vegas?

I love the place -- and I keep going back -- but after 4 days, I'm ready to go home. My longest stay was 8 days and it was way too long.

I don't understand how some people can spend multiple weeks there.

7 nights is my usual. Since travel takes the better part of the day (10 hrs including layovers and airport arrival, I need to make it worth my while.

I have gone for 4 nights and felt frenzied because I tried to pack it all in at once. Too short.

I will say that I usually experience Vegas fatigue around day 5. This comes from burning out from going too hard. While I haven't learned to slow up yet, I have learned to make day 5 plans that get me away. Examples: Bootleg Canyon zip line, Valley of Fire, spa day, or cabana day. Then I can return to the casino and it feels brand new all over again.

4 nights is the longest, that was for my 30th. Usually I go for 2 or 3 and that is plenty. Have no clue how people spend weeks there.

We did 21 nights in June and it's never enough. Only doing 11 nights next year as we're going a couple of other places first.

4 nights on the strip and 6 downtown is what weve done the last few years. Coming from the other side of the pond once a year then a couple of days is no use to us.

Longer would kill us i think.

I've went to Amsterdam for 4 nights, just there and back over a long weekend. That was plenty, too.

One time I stayed there 2 weeks and it was waaaaay too long.

Las Vegas is the only place where we can actually spend a whole week, although our normal trip is 5 nights. If the trip is Spring or Fall, when the weather is good, we spend a lot of time relaxing at the pool. So we're not spending the time being tourists or gambling in the casino. This allows us to take longer visits without getting bored.

Other destinations do not have enough that interests us to keep us entertained for more than 5 nights, some not even that long. So our longer vacations have always been multiple hotel stays in different locations.

Our longest was 5 nights that we made into a family trip with my mom and dad.

3 nights works best for us, especially since we have kids. It's a nice little mommy and daddy refresher. We shoot for twice a year, but the past few years, I have been able to squeeze in a few extra trips. With comps and a Southwest Visa, it's not too bad on the pocketbook.

I do find though, that no matter where I go, after 3 or 4 nights I just want to be at home. There's no place like home :)

7 nights, and we couldn't do all we wanted in that time frame. However, there was very little drinking involved. lol

Now, if I was drinking a lot, 2-3 days is plenty.
