Re: USA 2020 - Itinerary

Seeing the travel agent in the morning to hopefully book this thing at last. No doubt there will need to be some last minute alterations but at least we should have all the hotels and flights sorted out and paid for

I thank you all for your valuable advice on this. Please keep posting with ideas on "things to do" once I finalise the details tomorrow

Thanks mate.
It took three hours but it was worth it. The travel agent was great, very helpful. She found ways to get the most convenient flights (same airline throughout even with internal flights) and some perfectly located hotels near the ammenities. We can even fly initially from Humberside Airport.
Yes, it went great and was inside my budget but I'm several thousand pounds lighter tonight!

I've mentioned them in passing on here, Galty, and we have booked some trips in advance. I'll try to list them later on if I can, bud. Meanwhile, any more advice would be most welcome, thanks

Re: USA 2020 - Itinerary

OK

My advice for LV...you will have to pay at your hotel what they call a resort fee about $40 a day on average.

If on the strip and you want to go down town get the bus called the Deuce $8 for 24 hours you can also for the same price get the SDX.

You will have to go downtown to visit the Mob Museum cost about $25 and well worth it.

Have a great Holiday.

I will be back late May and all of June downtown for the poker

Sorry Galty, I got busy last night. This is our itinerary.
I don’t like to plan too much, we’ll take most of it as it comes but we do hope to include most of the following in our journey.

I saw a show in Vegas, in the most beautiful Venetian Hotel, we saw Phantom of the Opera and it was brilliant.
All of Vegas is brilliant, I wish you could fit me in your suitcase, I'd love to go back, it was the best holiday of my life on a par with Florida. One you won't forget. So, so excited for you.

Re: USA 2020 - Itinerary

I can't imagine anyone wanting to go to Alcatraz. I spent most of my life doing my best to stay out of there.
