The kid logistics seem overwhelming

My wife and I are expecting our first child in early fall, and she has the chance to travel for work 3 months after the kid is due. But since we have never traveled with a child we are completely overwhelmed by the logistics of getting to the airport, transporting the kid on the plane, getting the kid to the hotel, and back. Can you help us figure out everything we need to consider, and how we'll accomplish this so she feels comfortable with this trip? [more inside]

Hip, Hip Hooray, for Christmas Vacation

Our family rarely takes vacations, and even then, just to visit family, or at best, to a nearby lake. But big leaps forward in our careers have us thinking it's time to finally treat ourselves. We're thinking of taking the kid to Vegas for Christmas and rolling out, if not all the stops, many more than we've customarily been able/willing to afford. Give us tips for Vegas in general, Vegas for families, Vegas at the holidays, and small and medium things we can do to feel like high rollers. [more inside]

Las Vegas, up close and personal

(I am posting this for my daughter, and am sending the request as I received it from her, below. She is attending a training conference during the dates listed. She's 34, professional, and quite capable of finding her way around, although she will not be driving, so will need to use public transportation. She has never been to Vegas prior to this trip. She likes all kinds of music, art, cool neighborhoods..woman of eclectic tastes. Tell her what you love about the city!) [more inside]

Low roller wants low prices for Vegas trip

I have always heard that one can fly to Vegas and back inexpensively, and stay and eat cheaply while there. Is that so? How would one find the best deals? I have no particular interest in gambling (well, maybe drop $50), but many things nearby interest me.

Help us survive Vegas on Independence Day

Next week I'll find myself, my partner and our respective mothers in Vegas for the Independence Day weekend. Whilst we're all down with a bit of a spin of the wheel, and some slot time, we're less-so pool party and nightclub people. I read a lot which suggests it is basically going to be pandemonium for the weekend. Help a fella out, and show a pair of 30-somethings, with their late 50-something mothers, how to have fun in Vegas during the holiday weekend. Thanks!

Where should I stay during a conference in Vegas?

I'll be in Las Vegas for a conference this summer, and am trying to figure out what my best options are for lodging. I'll have a fair bit of time for fun stuff, and I can't decide whether it's wiser to stay right next to the Convention Center and cab it to the strip/Fremont, or whether it makes more sense to stay on the strip and cab it to the conference (I'm also open to walking, depending on weather/exhaustion levels). I'm also not sure which way would be most beneficial traffic-wise, going into or out of the strip. If you've done this before, which option would you recommend, and are there any particular hotels I should look into?

Living in Las Vegas

I'm moving to Las Vegas for a few years. I have a lot of experience living in tourist towns and dens of vice, but I've never lived in the desert. (I've been more of an ocean person.) Tell me what I need to know to get up to speed as a local in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the desert. What, from a local's point of view, separates Las Vegas from other cities? What did you wish someone had told you before you moved there? [more inside]

Vegas with a cane

Over the past 5 years, my Mom, who is still working but of retirement age, has had both hips replaced and major surgery on her knee. She's been keeping up with the physical therapy, and while things were looking bad for a long time, she is now able to walk with a cane and is able to go places around town by herself again. She's also, understandably, stir crazy from not having been able to walk or go out by herself for so long. She suggested the possibility of meeting her in Vegas over the holidays. [more inside]

Why would my hotel bathroom smell like rotten eggs?

I stayed at the Bellagio Las Vegas this past week for a work conference and was really excited to try it out. But the room smelled FOUL when I walked in. The smell was coming from the bathroom, but the bathroom looked clean. I guess the smell was like excrement/sulphur/rotten eggs. When I opened the shower door, the smell just poured out. So I guess it was coming from either the water or the drains? What could cause this?

Help Assuage My Fear of Las Vegas

I have never been to Las Vegas but will be going for the first time this summer as a bridesmaid for my friend's bachelorette party. I am not a Vegas person: I don't drink or club, I don't like being around lots of people all the time, my budget is extremely tight, and crashing at the yucky hotel we're staying at sets off all my buttons in every way. Am I going to be able to realistically make this happen, or do I need to figure out a way to bail now? [more inside]
