Hi-my husband and I went to Vegas for the first time 3 years ago for our anniversary the end of September. I think we got there on a Friday and came home on a Monday. Besides the gambling allowance, it was really a pretty cheap trip-about $450 each. We are looking to go back and it seems to be much more expensive. We'd like to go in the spring this time, April or May, rather than waiting for September.
We've been looking thru Expedia, Orbitz, Funjet etc but can anyone advise the best (aka cheapest) days of the weeks to go and if there are major convention times which I assume drive prices up. Also, which travel search engines have people had the most luck with or are we better off booking air and hotel independently? We are not too picky about what hotel we stay at but would like to be on the Strip, preferably somewhere in the middle. We stayed at the Trop 3 years ago and thought it was great except being too far at one end.
