Sudden unexpected desire to go to Las Vegas

Jump to last reply

What can I say? I want to use up some airline miles, and I decided it would be a great time to plan a trip to Las Vegas, a place I never thought about visiting.
I'm not a big gambler, but I wouldn't think about going to Las Vegas without checking out a couple of the casinos anyway. :). Evening shows are not my priority.
But mainly, I'm looking for a long weekend (4 days is ideal) away from the east coast, with a chance to do something different. Liberace Museum and great simple hikes are both on my agenda. Other quirky or beautiful sites and sights?
When is a good time to go that is not too hot, but still nice enough to lounge by a pool and head out to the hills? September? October?
A good place to stay, with some luxury. Las Vegas seems like a place where good hotels may be cheaper than in many large cities. Out of town, on or off the strip--I'm open to suggestions.
