NY or Las Vegas?

Ahhhh I want to get back to Vegas. I also want to visit NY too. I should probably go to NY as I've never been and have always wanted to.

What would you do?

As you may realize, asking about Vegas vs anyplace else on a forum such as this can be something of a futile exercise!

But if you've never been to NYC and have the opportunity to do so, I suggest you book to go there in a heartbeat. It's a place that everybody should experience if they get the chance. Vegas is the ideal adult fantasy world but New York (along with Tokyo) is the great metropolis of the real world.... :-)

We are like you. Have been visiting the USA every year since 2000 but never got around to New York. This year it lost out again to New Orleans, maybe one year,lol. It is quite expensive to go to but if you can justify the money go. There is so much to see on the whole continent.


PS should have added all the cities we visit are on top of Las Vegas every time.

Without been cheeky can I ask your budget?

I just ask because me and the wife got a good bargain on a dual trip 4/4 on Vegas and New York, and it worked out minutely more than 1 week in NYC and that's with all flights included and staying in PH and the Waldord Astoria in NYC

I do NY every 3 to 4 months, whatever is in LV aside from gambling NYC has 100 times what LV has.

New Y City hotels are more expense overall but not food wise, you can eat reasonable or high end, getting around NY is cheap if you use the Subway system and cabs are also inexpensive. We will be in NY for Memorial Day weekend along with my Daughter and Son.

I dont believe you will experience any city in America like NYC.
