Group of guys for a 30th - how long?

A group of us are looking at going to vegas for one of the guys 30ths in Jan 2015.

it will be about 15 hours travel time each way.

Is 7 nights on a party holiday in vegas too long, would 5 nights be better. I would prefer to stay as many as possible, but concerned guys might get bored after 4 or 5 days.

Been before solo so I know i could easily spend 7 nights there, so just wondering about whether a group could mange it.

I can't do more than 3 nights myself, so I'd go on the lower end of the spectrum.

Ok, u won't b BORED after 5 days...but your liver & budget could b strained!

Stay the 7 days, just work in some down time (pool?)

How many are in your party?

Have any/all of you been to the US and/or Las Vegas before?

You might want to consider a "core" time when you're all there, then anyone who wants to spend a longer time in the US can do their own exploring

For a party time, I suspect 5 days would be enough, but for anyone who has never been before, there is plenty to see in the US!

Bon voyage, and happy birthday!

Its not so much the partying, its more staying interested and entertained.

we could comfortably party 5/6 nights.

4 maybe 5 days at the most in my opinion, like another poster said your liver and pockets won't be able to take more than 5 days. Have Fun! Stay in trouble errrrrrrr I mean stay out of trouble :)

2days will count as travel days so you're really looking at 5 days. I don't think that's too much. You will need time for your body to adjust after a long day of traveling. I highly doubt you will be bored & if you are you can easily rent a car & take a day trip to Red Rock or Grand Canyon. I've been to Vegas many times & staying this summer for 7 nights!!!

Personally, I'd be very anxious to go home after 5 days. Can't imagine being there for 7.

5/6 nights is usually enough for us.

We fly out on a Saturday, fly home Friday, get home Saturday, then sleep and sleep 'till work on Monday.

Jetlag is a real struggle for us, getting old:O(
