Vegas does not impress me at all, my girlfriend keeps telling me she wants to go back to Vegas but I say I would rather spend the money visiting somewhere I've never been. I just dont care for Vegas at all.

Hollywood is a district of the city and not a very user friendly tourist trap. You would have to be caught up in the mystique and history of the movies to appreciate the entire area, and not just Hollywood Blvd. You'll never see a celebrity there, wait! I did see Julia Roberts at The Chinese, but that was luck. Las Vegas Blvd. is a whole other animal and it has to be the single greatest street in the world.

I work in a gift shop and I'm sick of being late to work because of tourists and traffic and I'm sick of having to be blinded when I leave that dark store late at night. Times Square was fun when I was an immature child into my early to mid-teens, but now the lights, glamour, and tackiness do nothing for me.
^^^ I wouldn't call the fountains out in front of The Belagio or the hotel itself 'tacky'. There's **** in Vegas you won't see anywhere else,... maybe Dubai or Hong Kong.
