    Neato, might have to make an appearance to this one as well. Vegas definitely is one of those "yeah I can do a weekend only" type of places, where as other places I need to turn it into a vacation to justify the trip.

    I agree. It's close enough to drive. Vegas isn't my favorite place though.

    Definitely isn't my place either, but at least it's drivable.

    I'm already stressed at the decision as to stay at the Westgate or my normal Venetian or Mirage.

    I say go with your favorite hotel, September should be good walking weather in Vegas so a stroll/shuttle to Westgate is very doable.

    Btw, does anyone know how it works when you buy corals/fish from a convention and have to fly home? Can you bring livestock on board? Do you have to check it in? Ship home?

    If you're spending the money for hotel, food, flight etc then you can probably budget for the $40.00 it costs to ship stuff home :)

    I believe livestock has to be delivered and picked-up from cargo areas.
